    WerFault.exe error after BSOD

    I was using my laptop (Toshiba U945), not running any atypical programs and was getting a warning about memory being low. I closed a couple programs and continued working, but then it froze and I had to restart using the power button. When I did, I got a BSOD which reported a session5_initialization_error. My laptop tried to continue restarting and repairing, but after it did I would get a BSOD again, and my laptop ended up stuck in an automatic restart loop. Eventually I manually restarted again. This time I didn't get a BSOD but instead a black screen and an error message:

    "WerFault.exe - Application Error

    The instruction at 0xae48fbc0 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be written.

    Click on OK to terminate the program."

    Clicking OK just closes the message and an identical one pops up a few seconds later. I can't use any windows key shortcuts, ctrl alt delete, etc. Any tips would be very appreciated.
