Hi I'm not good in hardware side. I have a Toshiba Satellite L510 Laptop with Core 2 duo Processor. Recently it was showing some issue. While I was using suddenly it appears blue screen and showed that machine was memory dumping... then it restarted.. This happened for so many times.. Now I cannot even switch on it. Issue happening repeatedly. Some one told me that problem is with motherboard and ask me to replace.. Anyone has experienced this ?? Does anyone know any solution to this.. Please help me...

Thank you in advance..

Blue Screen of Death !!! Probably check the hard disk fro errors . – The New Idiot Jun 20 '13 at 17:09
Check hard disk, memory, laptop temperature and try to post the problem in Toshiba's forum maybe they can give you a better answer. – Andres Jun 20 '13 at 17:11

Thanx Andres,... Ok I'll post this in Toshiba forum as well.. – ssdehero Jun 20 '13 at 17:13
Try booting off of an Ubuntu live CD. If you can do that, then it's a software-related issue with your Windows install for sure. If not, then you know it's something to do with hardware. If you can't get consistent, reproducible behavior, but just random failures, no choice really but to swap components with known working ones until it stops. – LawrenceC Jun 21 '13 at 11:58
