Hello everybody,

My laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520) running on Windows 7 has been crashing up to twice a day for the last two weeks. I upgraded my RAM from 2x1Gb to 2x2Gb shortly before the crashes started happening, so I thought the memory was defective, but I ran Memtest86+ which diagnosed to errors at all.

After doing some research online I tried opening the memory dump files. I finally was able to do that with WinDbg and the right symbols, but I can't really understand the content of the analysis... It says that "a driver is causing an inconsistent power state", but I don't understand how to fix it.

I would really appreciate if anybody could give me a clue, maybe it's a simple problem to fix? Here is the content of the analysis from WinDbg:

No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

And be sure to post all of them! :huh:

I upgraded my RAM from 2x1Gb to 2x2Gb shortly before the crashes started happening, so I thought the memory was defective, but I ran Memtest86+ which diagnosed to errors at all.

Software testing is not always accurate.
Try to run laptop with ONE RAM stick at a time and see, if the errors till happen.

Not particularly. Do you think it could turn off automatically to prevent it from overheating?

Yes it can, as I have seen my wife's do the same thing.

So do you think there's something I can do about it, with the fan for example? Did your wife's computer actually get fixed somehow?

Try elevating the laptop using some books or something.
