I dont think RAM would be an issue, I manage to log in, and i see all of my desktop, wallpaper and taskbar with icons, it's just a few seconds after that when i see the BSOD.
I ran a virus scan not too long ago with Avast and it turns out that i had a virus and/or some spyware. A trojan horse some win32 related thingy came up on avast, and i know i had spyware because my internet browser kept on redirecting randomlly to other sites (in safe mode). The redirecting problem has gone now.... I ran hijack this and got rid of all the dodgy files (i've used hijack this before, i know a fair bit about it) and i also disabled "elby cdio driver" in device manager. (This file kept on comign up in events viewer's errors, and upon further research I noticed that it's from Virtual Clonedrive (a software, which itself has no spyware, but which leaves a loophole through which a virus can access it or w/e ).
I had to view the hidden files on device manager in order to disable it, and ever since I've run Hijack This, cleaned my cookies and disabled that file, there have been no redirections in my internet browser (firefox) .
Even after all this though, my laptop still wont fully log on in normal mode without a BSOD coming up....
Any ideas guys?
