I believe it happened after I corrected a Machine code error 2200 on my laptop (lack of serial and model number in bios) and added a Intel 6300 wireless card.
· 64 bit
· clean installed to Windows 7 Professional upgrade (via usb, used ISO from digital river and made the usb bootable using Universal USB Installer from pendrivelinux.com)
· Age of laptop: unknown, motherboard was a refurbished product I got during Spring break.
· Current OS installed is 4 days old.
Thanks for your help.
The one crash included was caused by a memory exception probably by an unknown driver
Since you added ram recently I would run Memtest
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.
Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.
And run a system file check to verify and repair your OS files

To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
