3 gigs of ram sounds low for a windoze machine…. also possible you got a bad or improperly seated ram module…..
also are you using an external hard drive? Firewire?
other than that, my advice would be to put the sony in a blender, then flush the remnants down the john, and call your insurance company and claim it was an “act of Dog”, or somethin, and go shopping for a mac…. but some will tell you I might be crazy, so take my advice at your own risk.
