Hello,

 

I have a toshiba satellite P30 laptop running xp professional.

 

When i boot it goes to blue screen and crashes so i decided to repair with xp disc it goes so far in this process and crashes

 

so i decided to take the hd out and place it in another laptop and reinstall.

everything has worked perfect the laptop runs perfectly on the other pc so i put the hd back in to toshiba laptop 

and i am back to square one.

 

What might be the issue?

 

Thanks for any help.

What if you remove the HD from the toshiba laptop and boot to CD or optical drive? Does it bluescreen?

I'd boot this troubled system off of a burned copy of Knoppix Linux CD or DVD which is a free download / OS, and at the command prompt at the bottom of the screen type and enter memtest. This will run a memory diagnostic on the laptop, but may take a while to complete depending on how fast or slow the CPU is. I'd run it through about 3 full memory tests to make sure the memory is good and report back results.

 

Windows uses virtual memory on the HDD and if the memory of the system has a stability problem it will cause the issues you have.

Good point Goldfist. :) A bad memory stick may have been part of the problem. :thumbup2: He may also try using one stick at a time to determine if the BSOD emanates from a faulty RAM as a quick resolution also.

Thanks to you both for the advice.

I was thinking myself about faulty RAM but i needed another opinion,

I will try what you suggested.
