    Hi, continuing on to my other thread, http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/914544-solved-laptop-wont-start-no.html#post7310810

    I encountered another problem. I added some ram from my other Dell Inspiron 1525, and the video would come up perfectly fine, but when I get to the Windows 7 loading screen, it would take me to a blue screen and automatically restart. I am going to get new ram regardless, but is the blue screen coming up particularly because of the ram stick switch, or is it a different problem.

    I have one irrelevant question, but does it matter about what kind of PC2-xxxx I get.
    This is because,
    http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=3566EA65A5CA7304
    is faster than
    http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=A342E268A5CA7304
    and it is the same price.

    I don't want any compatibility issues, but I would prefer the PC2-6400 over the PC2-5300

    Thanks, appreciate the help.

    that depends on your laptop, try looking up the specs on the manufacturers web site.

    YES faulty ram can cause blue screen of death, also faulty HDD, faulty mobo, faulty CPU, faulty PCI devices and so on.

    Win 7 disk has a RAM checker, have you thaught of testing the ram???

    :)
