BSOD error on Toshiba Equium laptop

  1. Laptop kept crashing with BSOD errors.
    Been trying to install from Vista DVD but I get random BSOD messages
    that halt the install. They are:-

    IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
    0x00000005, 0x0000AC88, 0x0000001B, 0x00000001, 0x895080BF

    and

    0xC0000005, 0x8ACF2060, 0x87DD4B5C, 0x00000000,0x00000000
    win2k.sys

    Means you have hardware issues
    Is the laptop actually compatible with Vista?
    It seems you currently have win2k installed

    Yep

    No laptop that came with win2k could possibly run Vista in any
    acceptable manner

    An exact model number would be helpful.

    Blue Screen during the Windows install generally point to a faulty RAM
    module.

    I would try this first:

    http://www.memtest86.com/

    Have you also tried setting the BIOS to factory defaults.
    Reseating the the DVD Drive, Ram modules, and any other components.

    What is the condition of the install DVD. A nick in the right place
    would cause consistent failure and blue screens on the same files.

    As a matter of fact, Vista has a built-in memory diagnostic
    so you don't even need to get memtest

  8. The single most common cause of this is bad memory. Get a good,
    freestanding memory diagnostic (Memtest86 or similar)

    Second most common cause is overheating (fix: clean the heatsink(s) and
    fans (some laptops require major disassembly to do this well)).

    After that you are talking about really major stuff (new motherboard)
