Question about Dell Inspiron 1720 PC Notebook

2 Answers

Inspirion 1720 reboots regularly. Sometimes I get blue screens with memory dumps or bad spooler caller. It usually happens when I am surfing the internet or playing a game on the internet. I have Vista. I did the reset to factory settings and it rebooted while updating drivers. Dell has not been successful in correcting.

Reinstalling OS can solve almost anything, but it's a last resort no one wants to have to do. I read somewhere that WinUpdate should be run, but I have this prob and mine's up2date.

If usually on the net, it could be coincidence that this is when it occured. Would help if anyone knows what BAD_SPOOLER_CALLER means..? Many searches take you to BAD_POOL_CALLER, but I assume that's unrelated.

The original post was 2009, but if anyone currently has the prob, you could click on Control Panel > System & Security > Check for performance issues. I did this, and it said 'SuperFetch is not running: Fixed'.

Don't clean Prefetch.

I only have 2GB RAM, and usually have a lot of processes running at the same time - I need more. Games take a lot of memory.

It can't do any harm to run a reputable registry cleaner, like JetClean.

Hope that helps, and maybe someone more experienced can let us know a solution that's sure to work?

Thx.

most likely related to the blue screen issues. a possible reinstall of the OS may be needed. To check if it is blue screen related, restart the computer, press F8 when system restarts, then select the option to disable auto-restart option on the advanced options menu and press Enter. Next time you use the system, see if it will still auto-restart or if you'll get a blue screen. If there is an error, a system rstore or OS repair or reinstall may also be needed.

sometimes it happen because you have installed a driver recently and it is creating a havoc there. try to run in safe mode and restore the configuration to the previous one.

other options, is that a memory went bad. try to read what error is telling before the beginning dump of physical memory.

if one bank of memory is bad, try running your computer with one of the banks at the time.

Memory dumpping


That is usually called a fatal error. It's not really fatal but you need to fix it. Download ccleaner and regscrub xp both for free and run them to clean your system up. It should run much quicker after that.
