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.
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.
