Kindly go through the text and please answer my queries:


This is my Laptop configuration


1GB + 2GB DDR3 1333 RAM

320 HDD

Company packed OS was Windows 7 Home Basic


I upgraded to windows 7 Ultimate and then to windows 8.1


But from the past 2 - 3 months I had frequent appearances of BOD


I removed 1 GB RAM and the system was working fine.

From last 3 days the laptop has gone into a boot loop. It is restarting after the VAIO splash screen again and again.

I purchased a new 4GB DDR3 RAM and installed it. 

Then ran the windows 7 installation setup.... 

but now the setup freezes at "WINDOWS IS STARTING'


I changed the ram to the old 2GB chip

Set up has installed. Windows 7 installation finished.



Was RAM a problem?

Why there are frequent BOD with Windows 7?

Is there any motherboard compatibility issue with 4GB DDR3 1066 MHz / 1333 MHz / 1600 MHz RAM?

My laptop uses 1333 MHz RAM. If I install a 1600 MHz RAM then will there be any problem?

Is there any link between dying battery and other hardware health?


Thanks for ur time given here.

Go to http://www.crucial.comand purchase at least 4GB of "guaranteed compatible" RAM.


BSOD = Blue Screen of Death (there are thousands of reasons)
