t61p random blue screen win 7

2010-10-05, 18:03 PM

I've been running win 7 for 10 months on a t61p with no issues. I then started blue screening, ran diag came up bad mem module in slot1. Ibm replaced it, I reinstalled win 7 same issues blue screening. Ibm replaced the mother board same issues with blue screening. It happens at random times, I've done all the win 7 patches and Ibm patches. Ibm now tells me there is nothing else they can do and they only support a win 7 image from Ibm.

I believe the PC Doctor diagnostics program offers a fairly comprehensive memory test, but you might want to try downloading and making a bootable CD of the Memtest86+ program and let the ThinkPad boot from it and run overnight to see if it finds any memory errors.
