  1. Hello everyone out there,
    I'm using dell inspiron 1420 laptop for almost one year and have seen a lot of different BSOD. Initially I tried to look for those codes on net and every time new BSOD so new reasons. I tried to flush the system and reinstalled the vista home basic.
    I'm attaching some minidumps created by these BSODs. Strange thing is sometimes I face them more than once a day and at others it works for months without any problem..
    Please check the dumps as I'm pretty amateur in these software related issues and tell me the solution .

    thanking in anticipation....

    Your issue per minidumps is memory corruption. Run memtest on your RAM.

    See link and follow directions: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html


    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.

    * Get back to us with the results.
