I seems your internal RAM might be damaged. If you bought it new an dit is still under warranty, go back to your vendor and have it repaired. If out of warranty, you can try to purchase new RAM module and replace it (or have it done).

Blue Screen Of Death

  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

My HP 510 laptop boots Windows XP, but never finishes booting. It stops after it gets to a screen showing the "+hp" background image. There's no taskbar and Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing. I have to press...


Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.
