This has happened now four in the last few days. Both times my WIFI connection totally drops and nothing I do can fix it in Windows. So I do a restart to see if that resolves it. I get the Dell BIOS screen straight to a black screen. The cursor in the upper left flashes ever so briefly you almost miss it. Right to black... I used my xp cd to do get into the recovery console, a chkdsk says "no errors" but when I force it to do a full scan it say it found one or more problems and when I reboot it works, what could this be.
This all started happening after I got a couple blue screen errors about memory errors, when I restarted from them it said “a window has recovered from a fatal error”. The program that caused the blue errors was a exe that is not installed on my pc, just a click to run type thing.
This is my work PC and I can’t be down, thank you for help in advance, it is really really appreciated!

<<...after I got a couple blue screen errors about memory errors,>>

It would help to know exact wording for each error message received.
