sometimes my computer goes into this blue screen and does stuff about dumping physical memory? sometimes it doesn't do anything, and the moniter just goes to standby mode with the computer still on. Whats going on?? lately its been just freezing and i have to manualy restart it. so im not sure if i can give much more info. I have done hijackthis logs and scaned with ewildo ad-aware spybot s&d panda activescan and they all come up blank. Can anyone help me? : :whistling:

Hi Ed, welcome to Geeks to Go! I would recommend starting with a memory test: http://www.memtest86.com

Follow the instructions to create a bootable floppy or CD. Boot from that disk, and let the diagnostics run through. Watch for any errors. You should get zero. Please report your results.
