My husband has a Dell laptop, it says Inspiron Model #PP08L on the bottom, and it's pretty old, but (was) still functioning well. This computer has always been just a little slow, so we don't overload it with junk, I delete junk files and cookies and defragment it when it wants it. Lately it will work for a while then the screen will turn blue and there is just gibberish all over the page (I mean it's English, but pretty much nonsense and numbers to me). When it does this we have to just hold the button and turn it off-you can't get back to the main screen to shut it down. Now it's started where this blue screen is pretty much all there is. You can mash enter all day but there's never anything else. Someone suggested a memory issue. Could it be that or does it have some nasty virus? (It's been on AVG protection). Can it be saved? My laptop's messed up too, so we'd like at least one of our computers to work!!!!!

Does you error message look like this?

If you look down the page to where it reads "Technical information", please post the Stop: 0x000000... number.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The numbers where it says Technical Information, Stop, are 0xC03E11FC, 0xC000000E, 0xF847F558, 0x1035F860) Any clue what that means?
