Hi Techspot'es newbie in the community here. windows xp xp home edition version 2002 sp3(build2600) directx 9.0c intel(r) Pentium(r)M processor 1.7ghz 1.70ghz, 1.49 gb of ram physical address extension BCCode : f4 BCP1 : 00000003 BCP2 : 892B9DA0 BCP3 : 892B9F14 BCP4 : 805C8D78 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 768_1 C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERd82a.dir00\Mini031212-01.dmp C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERd82a.dir00\sysdata.xml I went to the minidump file and i only found one in there so i attached it to this post. It happened while i was listenning to an irish radio station online and i had probably 2 pages open aswell to do with learning css/html script. I was out of the room and heard the noise rar rar rar rar rar then it died. I have this (2nd hand old)laptop 2 weeks, got a first bsod today which i would gratefully appreciate some help as my last laptop died of a bsod. I hope i can sort this one out before it is too late with some help from someone. It was personally painful to hear that noise again. I originally thought it was a virus but after much deliberation i think this is the correct place to post.
