    so, I've been having these random bluescreens even when I shut down properly.
    I recently added 1 gb of ram and now have 2 gb.
    the blue screen occurs once i turn on my pc even when i erase the whole system and install a new os again. :confused:
    I simply shut it down, minutes or hours later turn it on to use and the bluescreen occurs.
    here's what it says when i run recovery or windows repair and get it to boot up:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.
    Locale ID: 3081

    That's often bad RAM, especially as it started to occur after adding RAM.
    Remove the module you recently fitted (make sure to remove the right one) and see how the PC runs.
    if no similar BSODs appear after a days use, that RAM you removed is faulty.

    If, however, you continue to get the same BSODs with just the original RAM installed, swap them over.
    If you get no more similar BSOD's after a days use, the new RAM is okay but the old one is faulty.

    If you still get BSODs regardless of the RAM configuration, either they are both faulty or it's something else altogether.

    If you can attach the zipped minidumps from C:\Windows\minidump, we can analyze them for you.

    But testing RAM is a good idea, too.

    MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
    Roadkil's RAM Test
    Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

    If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

    If you are running Vista or 7, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


    Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.
