Blue screen of death

Just recently i`ve had a problem with my notebook,every now and then i get the blue screen of death! Why i`m not sure but i have tried to fix the problem myself as i had a dead memory module so i removed this,thinking it would fix the problem but it has`nt.

I get feedback from microsoft that inform me that a driver is causing the problem,the blue screen tells me i should remove the new hardware that has been installed......problem is i haven`t installed any new hardware.

Also after a shutdown and the notebook has been off for a while when i turn the system back on i get startup,no display of any kind or any hardrive activity. i have to turn the system on and off several times before i get any life out of it.

Please help me! i`m a frustrated laptop owner who is about to bin his puter.

    Hello I have the same problem with my Fujitsu Lifebook N5000 notebook, a BLUE screen pops up something to do with 'Bios memory'. I have already:

    1. Restored system to earlier date. Did not work

    2. Restored entire system - had to reinstall Windows XP & all software.

    3. Fujitsu call center suggested it may be the Hard drive thats gone bad so I bought a New hard-drive and replaced.

    4. Now the blue screen pops up again this morning? HELP ME.

    I`m frustated with life!

    same problem, the blue screen of death but it's not a laptop, it's a desktop. I've done everything it says but still no startup. Only the blue screen, no Windows XP no nothing.

    I've redone everything it says but I can't get to windows to restore anything.
