  1. Hello. I have been testing a laptop that a friend has. It's specs are: Pentium M 1.7, 1024 DDR RAM, Geforce Go 6600, wireless. It runs windows XP Home 2nd Edition. The installation is fresh and all he has installed is device drivers. Suddenly, at random intervals, the PC BSODS. It does that even when doing simple tasks like browsing and it's totally random (it was rock solid for more than three hours two days ago, both on AC and on battery and it performed three BSODS within half an hour today).Two of the minidumps were traced to the nvidia drivers, however the rest (included 3 which my friend mistakenly deleted) seem to be linked to windows processes, mostly ntoskrnl.sys. I've posted the minidumps in two zip files due to the 100kb limit. Any help is appreciated.
