    irregular BSOD on older Dell Laptop.


    Hi guys,

    Dell Laptop
    Windows 7 64bit
    4Gb Ram
    Intel Core 2 Duo

    Personal computer this time - an irregular BSOD, about once a month, always caused by ntoskrnl.exe - often when hibernating, but sometimes in the middle of something.

    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
    or
    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    Kept windows up-to-date as far as I know!

    Any suggestions much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Since this is a problem with a Windows 7 system, not a Windows 8 either repost on the Windows 7 forum or better yet post on the Dell community users forum, Laptop section, for help.
