Possible fix for B.S.O.D..

Acer / Aspire m1640

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, 2.003 GHz / 1790 MB
I had a huge problem with my computer a while back, crashing, blue screen, etc,etc. I figured I'd gotten a nasty virus or the drive had gotten badly fried or something. I'd wiped the disk and re-installed Vista but kept having the same problem. I was about to take it to the shop when I read about this...
Vista apparently has a problem with memory chips. The solution was to remove half the chips and re-install Vista..it worked.
It turned out that I had 3 G's ram at the time, 2 one-gig chips and 2 1/2G's. I took out the 1/2 gigs, re-installed windows and Presto! it worked just fine. BUT! re-installing the 1/2G chips didnt work, it created the same problem. So I left 'em out. I'm down to 2G ram but the machine works fine (I didnt try replacing the 1/2 gigs with a single 1 gig..ran out of money). But the machine WORKS and I did it myself.
This may not be the cause of your BSOD but on the other hand...
Good luck.

Sounds like it was the memory or bios settings for memory all along in your case. Nothing to do with Vista at all.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
