Default poopy computer

ok, idk whats wrong w/ this POS!! ill be doing the usual stuff, AIM, FireFox, WMP. and itll just black out, go to the blue screen of death and it says something like "beginning to dump physical memory" then begins counting from 0 to 100, and on 100 it shuts down then restarts. On restart i get an error window then its works fine. it seems pretty random to, like sometimes itll go like 1wk w/o happening other times itll do it like 3/day. idk what to do other than refomat the HD, but i dont wanna lose all my music, pics, vids, and ****. help please!!

sounds like your RAM is bad. try to get some kind of ram test. i have a memory test on my computer that i can run at the boot menu, but that came with linux, so i donno what you can do for windows. be forwarned that a good memory test will take a couple days to complete, so expect to have the computer tied up for a while.

try to get something that you can use strait from the boot menu, because its no good if you need to actually use the memory to run the OS, while trying to test it.

if it shuts down randomly that may not be an option...

well if it does still do it, you could always get a cheap stick of ram, like 64 megs and see if it still crashes.
