The last BSOD was a result of verifier running.

So I just reset the verifier settings and now this thing is screaming! No stuttering at all

I do still get jumpy at the slightest "stutter" when loading up programs. ;)

The RAM was the problem, as this lappy has been running fine while playing Star Craft 2 and Battlefield Bad Company 2.

There are NO more Blue Screens so far!! (I was about to part this thing out on Ebay, Hah!)

This Dell memory (2GB) will not suffice. So I will be buying a 4GB RAM kit from newegg by the end of next month.

Thanks again to all who contributed to this problem! The things I learned in just a week! (almost) :D

ALSO, this laptop was a $500 refurb. Lesson learned, eh? (only a 90-day warranty and was purchased 4 months ago)

Either
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145598 CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB DDR2 800)

Or
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231156 G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB DDR2 800)

My personal preference for memory name brand is Corsair. I have always had good luck with them over the past 15 years.
