    If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer.
    If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
    If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
    for any Windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or
    remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory
    options, such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use a safe mode
    to remove or disable components, restart your computer and press F-8 to
    select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

    Toshiba with 2GB RAM( had installed 1extra GB couple of months ago)

    32-bit operating system

    Have you tried to do these steps?
    as you said, you fitted new parts further on in your post?
    Can you try doing a restart from a previous saved point\back up in SAFE mode? Obviously pick a date prior to the mini dump date...

    Are you using any 'Ready Boost' device on this system? If so please disconnect it, and see whether that helps. Also, if you have minidumps can you please post them for analysis, you can find them in C:\windows\minidump. Regards

    Your second memory dump specifically cites 'memory corruption (Read Memory Error @ 829b971c, 85b55658)' as the cause of system's crash. Now, that you have added additional RAM to this computer earlier on, may be there is an issue with that Module (based upon the assumption that before that you never had any such issues with pre-installed modules).

    Please download memtest, and let it run through the nite (minimum of 8 passes, more is better) to see whether there are issues with RAM and come back with the results. Regards

    Hey Archean,

    I ran it overnight with 417% coverage and got 0 errors.

    That dump was because of MEMORY_CORRUPTION_ONE_BIT which generally happened due to issues with RAM. Sometimes memtest is not able to find RAM errors easily, to stress your RAM further I'd suggestion you to test it on individual modules (i.e. one by one), it'll be pain but it is something which may yield something.

    It still there is no error found, get the newer RAM Module out of that system, and try running it with the older RAM for a while and see whether the BSODs happen again or not.

    Is your notebook came with integrated graphics (which usually is the case with likes of toshiba) or does it have a discrete graphic solution (e.g. from nvidia or ati)?
