Go to your notebook website and see if there is an updated driver for your NVidia graphics card. And a big thanks for filling in your system specs!

Sager's website still lists the driver that was installed when I purchased the computer as the most up to date driver. However, NVIDIA's site released an update 10 days ago for my video card. Which driver do you think I should install, the one that is two years old from Sager's website or the newest one from NVIDIA.

Also, running memtest now on my laptop as we speak, not too familiar with this, so what am I looking for, and what are the implications. Is there a FAQ somewhere you could point me towards so I could learn? Thanks

Any errors will show up on the screen. If you run 5 to 7 passes and have no errors, your RAM is good to go. If you get an error, please let us know and we will do further testing.

As a general rule, you are better off to update those drivers for laptops, notebooks, netbooks from the website of the machine's manufacturer. Many times these drivers are modified for the particular type of machine, You can try to update from NVidia and if it doesn't work, roll back or reinstall the Sager driver.

I am going to bed. Post anything you come up with and one of the team will step in. I'll be back tomorrow.

Well, this can't be good then. It is only 46% through the first pass with 1468 errors. What information should I type here to show you?

Use the snipping tool and attach a screen shot to your next post.

With that many errors I would say stop. You have a memory problem. Lets try to narrow it to a single stick or pair.

Try running memtest with one stick to see if it crashes. then repeat with the others

Also, take a known good stick and check each of your memory slots with it. We want to know if you have a bad slot; it happens. Since Ken is here, I am going to sign off for the night. Maybe we are, at last, getting to the cause of your problems.

Well, at least it seems we may have found the problem.

As for the posting of screenshots. I didn't boot into windows to run memtest, I just inserted the burned dvd and turned on the computer and it began running on its own. Should I have first booted windows and then ran memtest? Does this even matter at this point because of the amount of errors I am receiving?

Well, it is quite late so I'm turning in as well. I will be back on tomorrow night after work. Another update now, that leads me to believe it may not just be memory. After windows finishes loading up, but prior to the start of the operating system, chkdisk now attempts to run everytime. Going to run memtest overnight to see if the errors repeat themselves also. Thanks again.

Ok. So now I am completely lost again.

Ran Memtest overnight while I slept. It completed 7 passes with 0 errors this time. So I have no idea how the first time I ran it it could have returned 1480 errors at the completion of the first pass. Can overheating or something return errors?

Next because chkdisk was attempting to run at start, I let that run to its completion and it return the volume is clean with no errors, so there appears to be nothing wrong there.

Finally, I managed to uninstall any programs I installed late last week (only a few, but I figured just incase), I then I uninstalled all of the videocard updates (From NVIDIAs website) that I had tried to install yesterday evening that didn't complete. Windows then installs a video card driver for me, but when I select a resolution other than 1024x768 and select apply, either the computer acts like it changes the res, but doesn't, or the screen goes black and nothing will make it come back. Tonight when I get home I am going to install the video card drivers from Sagers website to see if that fixes any of my problems.
