I am using a Dell Latitude D620 (laptop) running 1.6 Ghrtz and 3.24 MB of RAM. I have been getting blue screened about once every 2 hours. Per the instructions--I have updated the BIOS (I think). I have updated all of the drivers, but I am still getting the screen. Below is posted the error info sent to Microsoft--edited for content

Any suggestions? What else should I do? Is it hopeless? Thanks in advance!

Try disabling your anti-virus. It has been known that some antivirus software consumes a lot of page pool memory.

Hi :thumbsup:. Take a look: http://www.faultwire.com/solutions/fatal_e...memory+used+for

FWIW: I suggest that you remove (by editing your post) all that detail you posted, I don't see where it's significant and it surely prevents a number of persons from even bothering to read your original post, IMO.

Thanks for the advice--info deleted.

I got another blue screen saying that I had a problem with a win32k.sys file

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I think it is still the device driver. I will keep trying--although--dell says I have the latest driver available.

Please...always post the exact error message...as it appears on your system.

The Readers Digest versions that some posters offer...often omit key details which may assist in determining just what the error is, what the cause might be, and how to overcome that situation.

From what I currently see...you have two error messages relating to memory, both slightly different. I think this alone would warrant running Memtest as a diagnostic tool...but I've been wrong before :thumbsup:.
