Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I had the Battery in with the adapter.. Then I tried just with the adapter.. Same thing.. It happen for both the Seatools and the memtest+.. I ran the memtest through usb. is that ok or should burn a CD for it?

When I switch it on back after I ran the memtest+, BSOD appeared.

Best if you boot memtest from USB or CD/DVD, not when running it via Windows.

Figured you must have. I'm not sure it'll even run under Windows.

Review this, starting at Part 3:

Did you note the error seen on the blue screen itself? That besides the memory dump can be a large if finding out if you are seeing a hardware or OS related problem like a corrupted driver set preventing a normal boot.

The next step now you can try would be booting up in safe mode and opening up the msconfig utility to disable almost every startup item in the Start tab. You can look over the Services tab as well checking off the "hide all microsoft services" box to reduce the unnecessary items for the time being.

The reduction of startup items even disabling all seen in the Startup tab and then suddenly seeing a normal startup without issue will point to software only as the main cause. If you still see BSODs however then you will need to boot live to run memtest from a bootable cd.

The lack of bad sectors being seen with the HDD Tune results is good but wouldn't rule out any possible drive fail. But that also wouldn't explain why the laptop simply shut itself off either.

One other thing to mention here is that memtest doesn't fix the causes for Blue screens. The program stress tests the memory installed on the system and reports on any defects found when left running for a few hours.

On one occasion I found memtest wasn't accurate while being one of the top rated memory testers. The problem seen with one old build was simply the wrong type of memrory not working out on one board. Memtest reported a list of errors. When the same pair of dimms went onto a new board a run of memtest found none! The next board accepted performance dimms while the previous would only run standard ram.

Hopefully it prove to a non hardware related problem where a simply drive wipe for full recovery will be all you will need. But a drive failing or some bad ram would need to be ruled out first. The main problem with OEM preinstalls to begin with is once something gets trashed you don't always have as many repair options available.

Maybe I'm misreading this, but those seem to me to be accurate memtest results.

Memtest displayed numerous errors on the first pass suggesting the memory was faulty when it wasn't. It was simply the wrong type of memory for that one board at the time.

Unfortunately there's no error chart to go by with memtest which would indicate the wrong type was installed. The number of errors seen on the initial run however pointed at something being wrong.

At first you think brand new memory was bad and needed to be sent back. Many have asked how do you read memtest results however where you typically won't find any specific charts to go by.

Agree that one's first thought would be bad memory. But if the board cannot communicate properly with the memory it will obviously report errors.

It does take quite a bit of time analyzing memtest errors. I haven't found much info about it either. But I haven't really taken much time looking for it either. I have found you can sometimes pinpoint a bad stick if you know how the board accesses the sticks and observe the error locations. Then swap sticks around and make sure the error shows up in the area you would now expect to find it (rules out a bad slot and definitely pinpoints the bad stick). Really only good though if you reliably get errors on first pass each time. Otherwise it would probably be easier to do the one stick/one slot at a time method (taking longer to go through all the testing though).
