Hi, I got a new Inspiron 1545 laptop just a couple of days ago. Its a T6400 C2D 2Ghz processor, intel 4500 chipset with integrated graphics, 4 gb ram. I had to reinstall vista after it went into a continuous loop - configuring updates , shutting down, confiiguring updates - after some windows updates. None of the windows startup repair options worked. Now after the reintall, I am getting a lot of BSODs..errors shown are IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL MEMORY MANAGEMENT REGISTRY ERROR and PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA....most common being memory mgmt. chkdsk shows no errors the memory test in the startup repair shows hardware errors with a msg that I need to contact the manufacturer. Have updated all drivers and the bios, but all that has changed is that the number of bsod instances have reduced from 10 per hr to 1 or 2. Also in several instances the BSOD is preceded by services such as RPC, Bluetooth, wireless shutting down with the event viewer showing registry is corrupted. Not sure what the problem is, though have a feeling its something to do with a faulty RAM.
