Question about Computers & Internet

Dv7 230m laptop blue screens randomly, more often during gaming.

I've been having several blue screens on random occasions, but mostly whenever I try initiating a game. Sometimes it may crash, other times it just functions properly. I started having the issues a while after the warranty finished, and it's been almost two years since then. I had my machine repaired once and formatted it twice, and yet nothing. The blue screens seem to be random, meaning that sometimes no message comes up, and some other times it gives off some .sys issue and crashes while making this really weird "electronic" sound before I have anytime to write it down. I am operating on windows 7, if you need any additional information, please ask. Thanks a lot, and a happy new year :)

    Additionally, system is scanned and clean, BIOS updated, and it's not a cooling issue.

SOURCE: Compaq nc6120 keeps crashing/powers off immediatetly

hello, though it is a very strange behavior, but lets try to start from a bit of clean up and this time mean physical. Get your self a nice AIR can ( dustbuster) and blow all vent areas throughly specially where the fan is( why the cleaning??? because i want to eliminate the fact that system is being overheated).
Once done with cleaning, download combofix from the link below and save it on your deskto with different name (random letter and numbers, ie hhiiuuy244.exe).
make sure nothing else is running when you run combofix(renamed version), do not click on anything until it has finished running.
when combofix is done it will produce a log file. if at all possible tun off youantivirus and/spyware protection for combofix to run properly.

when all of this done report back your findings.

hope this helps,

My Dell M70 screen flashes on and off and i have to turn laptop off and restart.

Try a lower resolution like 800X600 to see if it stops. If it does not, the possible issue is the connection between the laptop and the screen. I've had to replace screens for this issue as a last resort and fixes it.

Ahhh BSoD other wise known as the "Blue screen of death". This means that one of your drivers failed and it is very vital that you reinstall your Operating System or take it to your local specialized computer store (Best buy or local ones)

Well, my computer sometimes starts up normally but sometimes when im in the middle of what im doing it turns to a black backround and a blue box shows in the center of the screen it says something about...

This is Probably the BSOD i.e. Blue screen of death error...
1. Uninstall any programs that you had installed recently. Sometimes, there is a conflict in drivers installed on your computer that causes the blue screen error to pop up. In most cases, this does not happen, but if it does, Windows provides you a roll back feature where you can bring your PC's operating system back to its original functioning state.
2. Random Access Memory is faulty. When the Random Access Memory is faulty, the PC stops functioning everytime that area of the RAM is accessed by the CPU. This causes your PC to halt almost at Random. A simple process of elminination is just to remove 1 stick of RAM and see if the problem goes away. If it does, your PC is fixed!
3. Registry Errors Over time, the registry of your windows gets cluttered with tons of information. If you experience slow down in your PC during boot up times, opening up of new folders, surfing windows, its likely your registry has a ton of information it needs to wade through. That being the case, its a good idea to get a good registry cleaner and improve the performance speed of your PC. Errors fixed in your registry can also prevent Blue screen error crashes.

Ok so my vaio PCG_Z1WAMP keeps getting a blue screen problem and restarting. Its not due to the wireless because it happens quite randomly wile im using my computer. My brother who has the same laptop is...

Could be caused by one of several issues:

1 - Virus / rootkits
2 - Hardware failure
3 - Heat
4 - Something else

Most likely, it is number 3. If a laptop gets too hot, it will blue-screen and shutdown. This is usually seen as a random event because the load on the system is not always the same. You can try ensuring there is room beneath the laptop for air to circulate freely, let the computer "rest" for a minute or two if you're doing downloads, compiling programs, heavy graphics editing, or playing games.

Or, you can buy an auxillary cooling system that consists of a couple of fans in an enclosure that is powered by one of your USB ports. It will greatly increase the airflow into and out of the system to prevent heat related crashes. (I had to buy one for my computer after experiencing similar problems)
