    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps together, and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    3 of your minidumps have a bugcheck of D1, and 1 has a bugcheck of 0A.

    0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    Now go and follow all of the instructions in the link I gave you.

    Instructions for replacing the pagefile can be found in reply #11 of the above link.

    Regards Howard :)

    ram

    Thanks for your help it is most appreciated!

    But.... i have read your link and am baffled by everything in it! Im a girl (which probably says it all) and my knowledge of computers is embarrassing when it comes to playing with ram and a "ram stick" whatever that is... do you reckon its worth finding someone to do this for me???

    Yes it is worth getting someone to help you.

    Please don`t be too hard on yourself. I know plenty of guys who don`t know much about computers, so it`s got nothing to do with you being a girl.

    Not everyone is able to understand the in`s and out`s of computers, and that`s absolutely fine.

    If you can`t find someone to help you, then maybe you should consider taking the computer to a pc repair shop.

    Regards Howard :)

    I had the same BSOD problem and it was my RAM but RAM is a bit risky to muck around with so i agree about taking it to a pc repair shop.
