Hiya 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. Maldwyn
