what have you downloaded since it started crashing any new patches, windows updates, drivers, programs etc etc etc.. if youve updated your lappy in any way that could be causing the issue. if you have the opportunity to roll back DO SO if there was a wow update check wow forums for any issues witht he build. i remember back in the day when i was playing wow of one patch that would cause me to crash and reboot, went away after the next wow patch...
Okay, the Dell memory is probably what's causing it. It could be corrupted. Someone HERE had the same issue and used the recommended steps there.
If that doesn't work, you're best bet (without contacting tech support >.>) is to literally do a google search on "Memory Parity Error." Because this seems to be a common problem, there are many web pages/forums out there where people have asked similar questions and received solutions. I use that method often, since HP's tech support pisses me off >.>
thanks! but i'm actually thinking of just taking it to the professionals.... i'm tired of the crashes, and i'm totally new to fiddling around with a laptop....if it were a normal computer though.....hmhmhmhm....
Those funky numbers tell you exactly what's going on - ( theres a couple hex codes, and a couple memory addresses usually ) That first one that I highlighted - is the actual fault code which says exactly what error happened. MS usually has a KB page on the code - so you can look it up real easy.
OhDearMoshe - When quoting the MS KB - check the applicable OS for the article. Those are 2K & NT. Real old - and they may no longer apply. That thing was talking about SIMMs ... ow.
It's best to diagnose a BSOD by the crash code & OS version - not the description string.
Try doing a description string diagnose on IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - heheh
You've got like 100 possibilities for that single error. O man it sux.

Re: help! my lappy is getting screwy!
I think this should be turned into a general "Computer Help" thread, unless one is already around. I'm sure many MH members have wanted to throw their tower out the window before, and this might save them from having to buy a whole new one.
