WinXP Pro BSOD help needed

Just got this on my wife's XP Pro system"



She is running 1G of memory only.
Time to replace with new and more?
Would this possibly help?

thanks

1. 1 Gb of memory is plenty for XP.
Is this happening every time you try to boot?
Can you get into safe mode?

3. Get Memtest
http://www.memtest.org/#downiso
Burn to CD and boot from it to test memory.

4. Run Memtest, as Hobbit suggests
I recommend running a full disk/file system check on boot.

1. >My Computer. Right click on C drive select properties.
2. Select Tools tab
3. Select Error checking, dialogue box will give you two options (check & fix), select both
4. Click start, another dialoge box asking if you want to schedule disc check for next restart.

Reboot and you should get file & disc check. It could take a long time to run.

5. Ran a "check and fix" on the HD

It fixed something.
Hasn't crashed yet. So far so good.
