You can run a test on the system by Holding down the fn key and hitting the power button.I would suggest to call the dell tech support and get the memory replaced incase the warranty is still active.After that still the blue screen comes than you would have to reinstall the operating system.

Hardware malfunction


Greetings
That kind of error usually comes up with Ram/memory issues. try going into the BIOS and disable memory checking. However this issue is almost exclusive to dell :)

The culprits for this is GPU, RAM among others and fix from dell does not guarantee solving the issue. It usually triggers when you use graphics intensive operations.

Hope that info is useful.

Hardware malfunction


From the error report, it sounds like you have a bad memory chip (RAM).
If it's under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement.
If it is out of warranty, go to a vendor that sells RAM and replace it (such as www.crucial.com)

Dell Inspiron 6400 Screen turns black Problem


Could you please run the diagonistics on the computer?
Turn on the computer. When the DELL logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Diagnostics from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
NOTE: If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the
Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.
b Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on.

Make a note of any errors that you get after running the diagnositcs on the computer.
