Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario SR1230NX (PJ518AA) PC Desktop ?

My compaq presario sr1230nx crashes after 40 minutes of use to the bluescreen with vista. Has anyone had this happen? I ugraded memory to a gig and a new older nvidia video card. Is it a memory thing, a power supply thing? help, thanks!!


Answers :

It could be a memory issue as the bare minimum to run Vista is 1 GB. Also make sure all your drivers are up to date with the proper vita drivers. Hope this helps.
The BOD or blue screen of death is a driver related issue. It does however seem odd to be happening 40 min in instead of at boot. Check the event log in computer administration for a more detailed error log. Google the event and you should get more detail on correcting it.
