Question about Computers & Internet
Try reseating the video card and memory sticks. It is most likely a hard ware issue. I had an ATI video card that did this becasue the Catalyst program that came with it was causing problems, ui removed it and installed only the drivers from the disk and now its been working for a year with no problems, this was after about 3 months of having problems.
Try un-installing the drivers and any software that came with it that has to do with the video card, then just install the DRIVERS only and run it for a while and see if it improves.
Also, there may be driver updates online that may help.

Hi. memory dumps like that are mostly always hardware (or drivers) related. If you haven't changed any drivers recently then it's probably hardware.
My recommendation would be :
1) In the startup option of Windows (right click My Computer, advanced), disabled the automatic reboot upon memory dump
2) Next time you have a blue screen , identify the DLL or SYS file in the message. if it's always the same element that crashes then you found your problem. Google the driver name and see what is the problem. If you see almost random DLL or SYS files in your blue screen then you have an overheating issue (90% of the time it's the reason) or a simple hardware failure. (pain in the a** but these things happen) also, that doesn't mean the data is gone, but chances are if you can't boot at all ever again with the laptop you'll have to hook it's drive as a slave on another computer and get your data back. BUT keep in mind that the problem you are describing is NOT a HD issue or you would get the typical "NO HDD detected" or "No bootable OS found" post post-test issue. hope that helps !
