trying to troubleshoot my notebook Acer 5600, I ran Memtest86 with the two 512Mo RAM, with one and the other one, but I have the same error each time : here is a screen photo

The Windows XP installed crash on connection screen, but I reinstall a corporate Windows XP and run it severals hours without any problem. Linux installation still run fine.

Actually, is there any problem with my notebook? With RAM or CPU? How can I really check it?

This is most likely an issue with the CPU. Or perhaps the motherboard. I would probably stress it with Prime95 to make sure, use the small profile. Do you have any BSoD minidumps?

No, no BSOD occur on this PC – Cédric Girard Apr 4 '11 at 5:45
