I can't shut my notebook off

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.

There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.

A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.

My computer wont always turn and it shuts down on its own it desplays a blue screen an also it keeps tellin me to reseat the memorey


Here are the instructions for re-seating the memory:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/memory.htm#wp1181008
make sure that power and battery are disconnected and hold power button for 10 seconds to discharge any stored power before opening system to re-seat the memory.
If you have 2 memory modules, you might try re-seating 1st if issues still occur, then try the modules one at a time. You will also get bios notifications of amount of memory changing, just press F2 to enter BIOS then exit to clear the error any time the amount of RAM in the system is reduced or inscreased.

Laptop shuts down 15 seconds after power up


Try taking the battery out during power up.

Are you seeing any messages on screen?

If is still does not work with just the power cable, take out the memory and see if you get a beep error code. Then put one memory back in (if it has two just use one).

Error message


I would suspect you have some bad memory. The error message says it can't write to some location, and that normally means the memory there is faulty. It might also mean a problem with the motherboard, but that's unlikely. Try removing the memory modules, clean their contacts by gently rubbing with a pencil eraser, and then reseat them in their sockets so they latch in place. If the problem continues, switch the modules if you have more than one installed. If the memory is the trouble, you will probably have other errors. But if you still get the same error message on shutdown, the motherboard is the culprit.

What do you mean by this error? "The instruction at 0x003bfc61 refferd memory at 0x305eff8 the memory could not be written".


most likely it is a software error, as the pc is shutting all of the running programs down to turn off the PC, that is where the error comes in, you could try to stop some of the background programs to try to figure out exactly what app it is refering to. It will probably not harm anything unless it is a program like word or something and you haven't saved the document, if that can't be written before the PC shuts down, you would lose your work. If it is a memory issue with the actual RAM, you can run a memory test in windows under all programs Administrative Tools, or in the control panel under Administative Tools, and then Memory Diagnostics, to check the hardware,
Please give a fixya if this helps or solves your problem

My ibm think pad has a error message and when it turn on that is all that comes up


I've seen this once before, except there was an error code 225 that went with the hand. turned out to be an unsupported or bad memory chip. There should be on board memory on your model try taking out the memory and starting it.
