Hello, I'm new here, I have a somewhat old computer running on Vista (HP - a6245tw , AMD atholon dual processer 2.10 GHZ 32 bits) . recently it started to crash randomly, very often during loading and sometimes after loading as well, sometimes with blue screen sometimes simply rebooting itself.

I'm not sure what the problem is, though I did install a new ram a while back but it was fine for several months before this started happening, I tried removing / rearranging some ram and it helped a little at first but then started to go nuts again. maybe it's a virus issue?

here's my minidump files , hopefully it helps.

Thanks greatly in advance to any advice.

First of all test your Ram with the Windows memory testing tool http://windows.micro...n-your-computer if it passes http://www.geekstogo...-memtest86/then try the more exhaustive Memtest86+ this may take a long time so consider running it when you retire for the night, there are other possible causes but we will wait on the Ram results for now.
