Here's my problem. As my computer is shutting downs Windows and my Computer, I get a blue screen. Let it be known, this only happens once in every 10 times or so, but it stills happens. By the way, I thought I was a computer know-it-all, but I recently just found out what a Blue Screen was - so, I guess I am officially off that list.
The message says dumping physical memory to disc. What that means? - I do not know.
Here are my facts to date:
-Toshiba Satelite 200 (i am not sure about that)
-Intel Celeron M (CPU) 420 @ 1.60GHz,
1.60GHz, 896 MB of RAM
-Windows Xp (Version 2002) (service pack 2)
-ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M series GRAPHIC CARD
-C drive shows 45 gigs(24.35 free) and D drive shows 10 gigs (9.78 free)
-laptop was purchased in 2006
-$1,500 (I know what your thinking, I am very stupid)
-I hibernate quite a bit, but the Blue Screen only appears when shutting down or occasionally in the process of restarting.
Here's the real twister though. A friend bought the same computer (some how got it $750 cheaper?) and he is having the same problems - Blue Screen, the whole sha-bang
Just of recently, maybe the past three months, my computer has been running slow and I actually have copied the code in the Blue Screen and sent it to a local computer shop... but they had no clue.
Is there a fix to my problems, or should I just buy a new computer?
