One or more of the RAM (memory) sticks is faulty and needs replacing.

Find out which stick has errors by testing with Memtest86 on a bootable CD.
The CD image for creating bootable CD (ISO) is here: http://www.memtest86.com/download.htm#free

On a working computer you can use ImgBurn to create the bootable CD from the CD image:
http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn

When you've made the CD, boot your laptop from it and Memtest will load & start running automatically.
Any RAM errors will usually be shown within the first 3 or 4 passes.
Press <Escape> to stop the test at any point.

If two or more RAM sticks are being tested, test them one at a time (by removing the other sticks) so that you know which one needs replacing.
