  1. Hi all!
    I wonder if someone could help me with this on going problem. My computer is quite new, prob about 6 months old, however, it keeps crashing, whenever I open a program, or whilst browsing online.

    I have no idea what could be the cause of this, and have no thoughts on where I can identify the problem, can anyone suggest anything that i could do ?

    I have managed to get the dmp files, I hope someone can give me some idea.

    Thanks in advance.

    Apparently this is a growing problem with vista. I just recently purchased a dell latitude with vista for a friend and after a couple of weeks he tells me that the laptop is freezing up after a few hours of use.
    I figured it was just a lack of memory since he only had 1GB (vista uses over 60% of that at idle) so we doubled his memory to 2GB and still had the same issue after a few hours use.
    so, I know its not a memory issue. It sounds like a bug with Vista. So I search the web for similar problems and find this thread at a similar forum with lots of other people having a freeze issue with vista:
    Some of these people solved their problem by switching SATA controllers.
    Unfortunately I don't think this will help me since they all have desktops and i am having this problem with a laptop.
    Although I have taken apart and repaired many laptops, I am hesitant to open this one up since it is not mine and it is brand new. Besides, I think it would be a waste of time since I would assume that there are no wired SATA connectors in a laptop. Please let me know if I am wrong about this.

    Anyway, I will try disabling everything at startup except for a few necessities. If that fixes the freezing issue, I will start enabling 1 item at a time until I find the culprit.
