Blue Screen

Twice lately I've had 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL' with a memory dump of '#A(#166,#2,#0,#804e5433)' where '#' is hex and 0s omitted. I wonder if there is a memory chip going awol. Any ideas folks? Thanks.

when did this occur? Were you playing a game? Was the PC idle?

I assume you have windows XP?

What are your system specs?

XP Pro SP2 EVesham (Mitac 8375) Laptop 2.5 yrs old (I've lasted nearly 60 so what's wrong with this?). I recently had a hdd change - red herring I know). Trouble is changing all the boards is a no-no as I have 3mths labour g'tee left. Is there a ram test program out there. I do not think it would be uP temp. as ambiant here is cool and fan comes on when things warm up. This was when I had just switched on and just logged on, did nothing and them BAM! Thanks for responses so far. PS I am looking for an excuse to go 1GB memory.

Download click here and run. Amongst other things PC Wizard 2006 shows you temperatures for various components (depends upon the manufacturer and what they enabled). My Acer AMD 64 with 1Gb shows CPU 28 degrees and HDD 31 degrees and the system fan at 0 rpm.

I will download the said software and try out. Report back soon.
