Hi, i was given a laptop by a friend about a week ago, its a DELL Vostro 1500.
i was told that it "crashed" randomly, when i had it it had vista.
the sticker on the laptop says "core 2 duo" but the actual processor was a celeron! :cry:
so, my first port of call was throwing a core 2 duo in, this worked well for about a day until it bsoded again.
I then put a new HDD in and installed windows 7 pro but the bsods are still here.
I have attached the minidumps that have ocurred during the past day or so.
They all point to ntoskrnl.exe but i am not sure where to go from here.
