I'm not a Vista person yet and it is quite different from my own XP computer, so I am of limited use.
But to get you started can you tell us what that Blue Screen of Death, (that's what it is called, ) says? The error code is important if it gives one, and it usually is in the format 0x00000C9 or similar. That would help others find out what the error code is trying to say.
Can you confirm the 28% message? Are you sure it says memory, (RAM), or does it say hard disk space? As a matter of interest what are the specifications of your laptop, eg how much RAM, what size hard disk and how much free space on the hard disk you have.
Do you use any computer protection against viruses and spyware? If so, what do you use?
Finally, laptops prefer to work on a hard surface where air can circulate underneath and around it. Are the air vents on your laptop clear?
Don't worry, these things don't hate you. They just need loving care and attention!
Hello, my name is Margaret, and most electronics honestly hate me. My laptop is less than a year old, and I'm having all kinds of problems. I wanted to try this before spending more money I don't have on the geek squad, and I don't even know if they really help. I have an HP Pavillion dv6000. I have several problems. 1. My comp sometimes goes to a blue screen, a stop message, its says its crash dumping, and I have to restart it. 2. I have Windows Vista, and it says I only have 28% memory left! 3. I don't know what it is, but it sounds like the fans won't stop running and my comp gets really hot. Almost monthly I defrag my comp, regularly I run the disk clean up, I try to take care of it. If anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much!
