Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
I have a Thinkpad R51 and for the first time in 4 years, I saw a blue screen on this machine. The machines boots (or atleast tries to boot) I can see the desktop and then by the time everything else gets on (finishing the start-up process), there is a dump (blue screen). I have to shut down the machine. So..
1. How do i find out the exact cause and reason for the blue screen ?
2. Once I know, how to get things fixed ?
does this also happen in safe mode boot. (press F8 just before windows boots). If not then go to your event viewer and check the messages at the specific time,hour messages. for example. computer booted at 23:30. in windows around 23:31:10 and then blue screen. Go to safe mode. and look in the logs what registered at 32:31:10(around this time).
If not possible to boot in safe mode. Try to remove one of the 2 memory dimm(if you have 2). so you boot with 1. maybe 1 of them doesn't work good anymore.
