Blue Screen, Dumping Memory!
Hey, i had a problem with my comp where i was getting major slow downs, and blue screen error messages, well long story i coudnt wipe it either as it coudnt find a partion and needed drivers or something :S. well i left it for a week and suddenly it let me wipe it.. so i have a fresh install of windows vista now.

It was all going well until... i started getting MAJOR slow downs, where id be on msn messenger and it would say it is not responding, and it would take forever to load.. eventually i got a Blue screen saying something about dumping physical memory, then it would restart itself.

Whats going on? Please help.

Cheers.

Read this post. http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/3...-physical.html If you've added memory or have a problem with one you need to start there. Jazz

But memory does eventually go bad and suddenly. How long has it been since you've dusted the thing out? Have you tried cleaning the seats up and reinserting the sticks.

I did a windows repair thing for the installation CD and it said the root of the problem was... A hardd disk could not be found. If a harddisk is installled, it is not responding.?????

If you cleaned it you may have loosened the cable to either the motherboard or the HD itself. Check both ends of the cable and the jumper on the Disc and try it again.
In your bios is your HD showing up? (Might be the root of the entire problem your having) Let me know what happens...Jazz
