Dell pc giving blue screen -issue with recent Windows update?
I have gotten some blue screen error messages on my Dell Desktop at home.
It was after the last automatic windows update, so I did a full back up and a system restore to the day before the windows update. Update was 7/9 (a malicious software detector or something), so I did a restore as of 7/7.
Have you heard any issues with recent windows updates? I turned off the Windows Auto update feature for now.

First of all you have to identify the blue screen error code. Blue screen errors normally occurs due to infected windows files. You need to scan PC to remove malwares, junk and virus. Also update the drivers that control your PC.
To fix this problem instantly use system optimization tool like Reginout.
If you recently made any hardware upgrades check that the hardware is fully compatible with your machine.If nothing like that has been done, reboot the pc in safe mode by pressing F5. Some machines are F8. Check your programs and features for any newly installed software or updates. Remove any conflicting software or updates and restart the pc normally.
What is the error? Is it a blue screen or some other type of issue? Did you recently change some hardware driver or OS setting?
What OS do you have installed - this is very important if you downloaded Microsoft updates in the past few days on a computer with XP. There was an issue with a patch and it has to be rolled back. The symptom of this issue is the blue screen with the message "Page_Fault_In_NonPaged_Area" The solution is detailed at: http://www.krebsonsecurity.com/2010/02/new-patches-cause-bsod-for-some-windows-xp-users/ . Microsoft will offer free phone support at 1-866-PCSAFETY and has an alternate fix here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979682
Other errors can often be dealt with by rolling back with system restore (carefully - you can lose other drivers).
hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.
As soon as you see your "wallpaper" on the Windows desktop, click Start.
Point to My Computer.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on My Computer.
Below Startup and Recover, click Settings.
Click to remove Automatically Restart.
Now, the next time that you see the "Blue Screen Of Death", what message _stays_ on the screen? Write it down. On another computer, do a Google-search for that string, and read what others have done when they have gotten the same error-message.
that is a memory dump, try to remember what hardware or software did you install or uninstalled recently, if you can log-in on windows try uninstalling or reinstalling the hardware or the software. if it fails, run the windows recovery on the cd and repair the windows installation.
