My computer may be dying…

A guy stomping the shit out of his laptop.So…ever since yesterday my computer has been blue screening.  However, I noticed today that it only did it when I had movies on in VLC or Windows Media Player, and then only about every 20 minutes.  Initially I thought it was because my hardware couldn’t handle all the awesome of Doctor Who, but then I tried some other movies and it blue screened then too.

I suspected it may be something to do with the most recent update, so I tried to roll the update back.  It said that it was unsuccessful in doing so because I have an anti-virus active.  So I shut down Kaspersky and tried again.  Same message.

So I started it up in safe mode, but all the restore points were gone.  Then, when I restarted the computer in normal mode, they were also gone.  So no rolling back.

Also, my video drivers are up-to-date.

Is my computer dying?  What should I do?  Haaaaaaaaaaaalp!


Here’s an update:

My computer specs are as follows.

Asus laptop.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM @ 220GHz
8 GB of RAM
Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium, service pack 1

I’m about to run some more Doctor Who and let it blue screen so I can write down the stop code.

I’ve also been streaming football all morning in Firefox and it hasn’t blue screened.  Also, the last few times I’ve run a movie, it has frozen like it was going to blue screen and then just restarted.
