Disable automatic restart on system failure. To do this: Go to Start > Right click on 'My Computer' > go to Properties > Advanced tab > Click 'Settings' under Startup and Recovery > under 'System Failure' uncheck the box that says automatically restart. Click Ok on all the dialog boxes.


After that, the next time you get the BSOD, tell us the words in all caps, and also the STOP error code. It'll be at the bottom of the screen, and be formatted like this: 0x000000##, where ## = some numbers and/or digits.

Google for and download MemTest86. It is a LiveCD. Run it for at least 4 hours. Sounds like a RAM issue.

thanks. but call me retarded henceforth. after googleing the memtest 86 i downloaded the zip of the ISO. and did two different things.
one extracted it (memtest) and the burning program opened with it only to say it did not recognize the format when i tried to burn to ISO
two extracted it to a file location on the desktop. and from the burning program, selected that file (memtest) to create the ISO disk and the program again refused to recognize the file...
