    Is this a problem that just began, and did the laptop originally come with Vista or was it upgraded?

    Are you seeing any error messages?

    In Vista you can test the ram by running mdsched.exe

    Is there any pattern to this, can you reach Windows in any mode, such as Last Known Good Configuration or Safe Mode?

    Can you get to the F8 boot menu where you will find these and other options?

    If you remove the power adapter and just leave the battery in, does the same thing occur?

    If you cannot get to these options, it is a hardware issue.
