HP Laptop can't get past blue screen

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;

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"

"MEMORY_MANAGEMENT"

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.

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!
