I've been reading a number of posts on the "blue screen of death" and the dumping of physical memory. What it looks like to me, however, is that even after having these things happen, most people's computers are still operational to a large degree. Not so with mine. I saw the blue screen and my laptop began dumping the physical memory, but ever since, all it does when I turn it on is ATTEMPT to start Windows XP. Before the OS has a chance to fully load, it shuts off, then tries to restart -- over and over again. XP never loads and I can't even get to the point where I can put it in safe mode and navigate through my files and folders. I kinda think I'm screwed, and the only recourse for me is to buy and install new RAM cards. Thanks for listening. Any ideas on this?
