I think it's a memory Leak...

Hewlett-packard / A6223w

Specs: Windows Vista

Those are the top two reasons I get every time I get a blue screen of death..

I can turn my computer on and use it for about thirty to fifty minutes before it crashes and dumps files to disk to protect from losing data. After that, I can start it up and use it for about twenty minutes. If I want to use it more than twenty or less minutes, I have to shut my computer down and leave it for at least a hour.

I don't really know much about computers really, but a friend of mine took a look at it and said there is a problem with my memory. I haven't been able to get in touch with him for awhile now though.

I'd like to know how you can find out if there is a memory leak, and how to fix it if possible. Any help would be appreciated.

I forget to mention that when memory manager is brought up, my free physical memory is usually around 63 MB or lower.

It does sound like a memory problem. If you're good with messing inside of a computer, unplug it, slide the side cover off, touch the metal chassis with both hands (to ground yourself), and remove one of the RAM sticks inside and try to bootup. Your system may just have 1 stick, if so, you may need to swap it for another stick of the same type.

"my free physical memory is usually around 63 MB or lower" Is that when you have a lot of programs running ?

Have you cleaned out your machine lately. Maybe things are getting too warm in the case.
