    This could be because its not compatible or because the memory slot is bad, or its in the wrong position.



    I need some details please.

    is this a P.C. or laptop ?



    If a P.C., how many memory slots available, what is the size of the memroy sticks, what is the speed or specs of the memroy sticks?



    should say on the memory.



    Also, are the memory slots alternating colors like two are black and two are blue?



    let me know, thanks.

When i try to install windows xp, then all files are extracting rightly but when start up is loading suddenly blue screen appers. so plz help me to solve this problem. give me suggestion.


Hi jenishrabadi, Have you tried using different source software for your windows xp installation.
There should be an error code when you receive the blue screen. post the code here, it may seem like 1) either corrupt software or 2 ) Faulty hardware. Most likely memory.
without further performing any more diagnostics (as we do not know what the actual error is) and making the assumption it is faulty hardware, if you have more then one memory cards in your notebook, try and take one memory card, then try the setup/install. if this fails .. put the memory card back in, and remove the 2nd memory card and try again.
good luck ... hope this helps ...

Yes I would have thought so. The blue screen is most likely caused by some memory. If it was working ok before installing the new memory, then it is either the new memory, or a faulty memory slot on the motherboard

Blue screen error acer desk top


hi friend the blue screen comes when there is a 1:hardware problem
2:virus problem
3:Installation Disk is corrupted
4:RAM problem

First, check your CD and clean or replace it as necessary. Your next step should be to test your system memory for errors with a diagnostic program.
To do this obtain the Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest memory diagnostic programs on floppy or CD we mentioned earlier, and use it to boot your system and test the memory. If either of these programs shows any errors in your memory, you have likely found the source of your troubles.
Chances are you will need to purchase new memory. For more information on faulty memory and memory diagnostics, see PCstats Guide to diagnosing bad memory .

Blue screen all the time, even after clean install??


Check your memory modules....the blue screen of death happens more frequently when associated with either bad memory or unseated module. Try removing a module and changing them around to see if the machine boots.

Hi,
There could be two reasons for the blue screen either a bad harddrive or loose memory cards in the slots. Try reseating the memory cards on the motherboard.
Also please post back the Stop code you are getting on the blue screen

Hello my friend, regarding your problem do you have installed program or driver software lately before this blue screen appear? i guess the problem here is more on the memory dumping of your computer. either the latest installed software is not functioning will or  u have a memory device problem either to much heat or cause by some circuit problem that made the memory device problematic. the worst case here is to replace memory but for now try to check first if the memory is running well and stay in its standard cooling temperature. Or you can reprogram your computer.

Blue Screen of death


According to this link, the memory of Compaq Evo N610c can be upgradable to 1024 mb.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11382_div/11382_div.HTML

Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Evo N610C to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system. (Souce: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqEvoN610C.html)

So you have to install 512mb memory module on each slot to make up 1024mb of memory.

Did you install 512mb memory module on each slot or did you just install 1GB memory module in one slot?

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.

You may also want to go to these links for other suggestions.

that is a memory dump, try to remember what hardware or software did you install or uninstalled recently, if you can log-in on windows try uninstalling or reinstalling the hardware or the software. if it fails, run the windows recovery on the cd and repair the windows installation.
