I have an ASUS K45C laptop. I had to restart the system by holding down the power button to shut it off, and when I tried to start it again, I got a BSOD when Windows was loading. This happened whenever I tried to boot -- even when booting from a recovery CD.
I caught a few of the errors from the BSODs:
1. acpi.sys couldn't be loaded.
Running memtest86+ for about half an hour produced something like 800000 errors. I tried taking out the stick of RAM I had in the expansion slot, and still had a lot of errors from memtest, although I could boot into recovery mode and get to the Windows 7 login screen at this point (although it BSOD'd shortly thereafter).
Any ideas about what's going on? Is the RAM that's soldered to the motherboard broken?
