HP Laptop can't get past blue screen
Dec 26, 2009, 2:34 AM
I made no big changes when I shut down my laptop last night (running Windows 7). I booted it up this morning and it always gets to a blue screen and shuts down.
So far I wrote down 2 different blue screen errors;
I try the advanced repair where it tries to look for the problem but it never completes and comes up with different errors.
I don't think I can send the laptop in because it's past its warranty.
What do I do?

Could be a memory error. Run memtest from the Ultimate Boot CD (google it). You can also run a hard disk diagnostic. The IBM/Hitachi utility at the top of the list on the CD is my favorite.

Ran memtest86+ , uhhh I see a lot of red.
It froze as well. Couldn't use ESC or anything so I just turned it off.

So by memory error do you mean it can't be fixed? Like I have to buy new RAM?

Usually, yes, you will have to replace the memory modules. Sometimes just doing things like reseating or switching the modules order can solve errors.

I took one stick out, booted it up. Worked fine.
I put the stick back in, same error.
So it appears that this one stick is done for. I'll have to buy another one.
Thanks for all the help guys!
