    Well as for one i see a memory error, meaning that you have to check you ram and make sure that is ok, u can do that using MEMOTEST86 it might take long but it will do the work of telling you whether you computer ram is fine or not.However am sure u will get exactly that a memory errors in you machine.so if you can open it, and check whether you have two or more chips and try removing one,if it does the same, try the other and put back the one u removed.then see wat you get.Wish you luck.Robin
