Sounds like it could be your ram. How many sticks do you have in your machine? I would try isolating it and trying to boot it up with just one in to see if your ram needs replacing.
Is your pc a store bought one? Is it still under warranty?
Im personally a bit cautious of telling someone who doesnt know what a stick of RAM is to open up their rig and fiddle around.
Please note, that any advice you receive on this site(or any online tech site) is advice only. Acting on it is entirely at your discretion, and your responsibility for any consequences good or bad.
I ordered it off Dell's Site, and Im not sure if the warrenty is up, but Im pretty sure it is, but I think it would be easier to ask here then to deal with Dell(there customer support isnt exactly the best). Anyway, I tried a system restore, which worked for several shutdowns and boots, but eventually I got it again.
By the way, my laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525
EDIT: Memory(RAM): 3062 MB
Also I noticed my Physical Memory on Task Manager is quite low?
Cached: 2010(give or take 2)
Unless you've paid for extended warranty, standard warranty is 12 months.
Sticks of RAM in a laptop are shorter, and often called SODIMMs by nerdy types :p
They sit in slots on the mainboard. Taking them out and putting it back in is a bit trickier in a laptop, but can be done with a bit of concentration, and CLOSELY following the instructions in the service manual of your specfific laptop model.
You just need to ensure you are following correct safety procedure:
*Work on grounded surface. ie. not on a shaggy carpet or near water :D
*anti static gloves if youre super keen
That being said, the numbers youve given from task manager are quite normal. I have a vista x64 that has been purring along nicely for a long time. Heres a cap of my taskmgr memory numbers:
BSODs are quite commonly caused by issues related to hardware or driver changes. Have you done anything like this recently? Had you been using the pc ok for gaming etc until recently?
No I havent had any hardware changes, the only games I have installed Is KOTOR1/2, EAW, Axis And Allies, JK:JA. They have worked perfectly fine for a long time.
If you're not comfortable poking around yourself, see if you can find someone too look for you, it could be that one of the modules (sticks) became unseated.
