Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Toshiba Satellite a215-s4747 randomly crashes

I'm running Windows Vista 64-bit. Problem started around the beginning of December. I have done a system once already. 
What happens is I get a BSOD at random times. Sometimes it can be days before it crashes or it could be minutes. The blue screen says something about a kernel_page_error and a memory dump. There is sometimes where it counts up the physical memory and then restarts.
I have tried everything I can think of and I've looked everywhere, but nothing has worked. I have updated the BIOS off the Toshiba web site. I've had friends run hardware diagnostics TWICE and nothing showed up. My guess is that the problem is related to the memory, but if all the hardware looks good, I don't know what else could be the problem.
Oh...and we cleaned the inside and made sure the fan was working, so we don't think it's an overheating problem either. HELP!

Hi!

When you says you run hardwarae diagnostic I guess that it is the hardware diagnostic tools from the computer itself.

Try downloading this software, it is a ISO image, so burn in a CD and boot from that CD.

It will boot up and run a memory diagnostic in DOS mode.

I think that this is a memory problem.

P.S. Did you clean the memory contacts and memory slots in the computer?

Do you have more than one module of memory RAM? In that case try with only one and switch with the second one to see what is the defective module.

Please help. I installed Windows 7, before was Windows Vista. And now I have problems with sound, it is terrible. Can you advise sound driver? Laptop- Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747


Since you upgraded, it's possible you are still using the Vista sound drivers. I would suggest you visit the Toshiba website and look for the support menu item for your particular computer. Then find the sound drivers for Win 7.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 DVD/CD crash?


Normally when this happens, what one should look out for is the possibility of it happening again. Like desktops peripherals such as disc drives would have connections internally. If you can have them checked out if there were loose connections. It could also be faulty internals that will break down soon such as ICs in the drive.

If the problem is caused by moving it, it's probably a mechanical issue: loose cables, memory, broken main board. Check that the memory modules are firmly seated. Also make sure the processor is firmly in its socket and that the screws holding down the fan/heat spreader assembly are snug. Be sure the cable to the hard drive is firmly seated (if this model has one) or that the drive is firmly pushed into its connector.

You can also try running the machine with the top cover off and use a wooden stick (I get extra chopsticks when I get Chinese food, they work great!) to poke around and see if any particular spot causes the trouble to occur. If the system board seems to be the culprit, you might be able to spot some flaky connections, but most likely you'll need to replace it.
