I have an Acer Aspire 5755G. It is 6 months old, i bought it from Newegg. The computer had been working great up until two weeks ago. The problem is that I will randomly get blue screens and errors. I have re installed 3 times, to no avail. Finally I sent it back to Acer. They tested everything but the harddrive(no 3rd party hardware tests allowed) and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Since it has been back from Acer, I updated the bios and re installed windows. However, I am still getting the blue screens. Any advice on how I should proceed?

Run memtest on your ram which is usually the most likely culprit for BSOD's. http://www.memtest.org/

Wouldn't they test the RAM when I sent it back?

Probably not with that thorough a utility. Run multiple passes.
