Question about IBM ThinkPad A31 Notebook
I was running multiple CPU intensive applications. Computer threw exception and blue screen emerged with memory dump message.
Next time I tried to start laptop, screen would only display series of fine horizontal and vertical gridlines. I started in safe mode and removed some of the music files from my computer since it appeared I only had about a 1G of free memory left on the laptop. I now have 2G free. I restarted the computer and still had gridlines. This morning I started the laptop and the gridlines appeared but this time the windows logon appeared and the standard screen eventually displayed. But the problem is that the gridlines are now present with the normal screen. It is on the edges of the display screen and on various icons. How can I troubleshoot this problem?
Try to remove your Memory modules and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. Makes sure to clean both sides of the memory contacts.
