My acer laptop 4551 is blue screen after using for 30 minutes online
Blue Screen Error messages can have a multitude of potential causes, such as: Failed, failing or faulty Hard Disk Drives (HHD); Faulty or incompatible Random Access Memory (RAM) Modules (often referred to as sticks of RAM); Operating System (O/S) corruption; incorrect System Settings changes; Failed failing, faulty, overheating or overheated Graphical Processing Units (GPU - commonly referred to as Onboard Graphics Chips); Overheating of Central Processing Units (CPU) caused by Cooling Fan (CF), Cool Air Intake (CAI) or Hot Air Exhaust Vent (HAEV) blockage as a result of use of a portable computer on an inappropriate surface such as soft cushions, soft bedding material or thick, piled rugs or carpets; CPU overheating caused by a failed, failing or faulty CPU Cooling Fan; Registry Editing Errors; Page File Sizing Errors (Page Files are adjustable extra spaces on the HHD created and allocated by the System for essential Memory Operations that the RAM is either too small is size - measured in Mb/Gb -or too slow in speed - measured in GHz - to handle alone); Malware infections; Web Browser corruption; Device Driver conflicts, corruptions or accidental deletions; incorrect Device Interrupt Request (IRQ) settings in the Basic Input Output System (BIOS); Incorrect BIOS Settings; Incorrect System File compression decisions by a User trying to create extra space on a nearly full HDD; A full HDD with no room to store additional data; Accidental deletion of a cruccial system File; Accidental deletion of an essential Common File or Program shared by other Applications; Overheating of the CPU by the encrusting or layering of dirt, dust, grime, carpet fibers, pet hair, etc directly in the grille of the CF, CF CAI or CF HAEV, etc, etc., etc (as you can probably tell, I could go on and on).
Computers that freeze, crash (spontaneously shutdown an application, Web Browser or the O/S in mid-use) or Blue Screen, indicate a serious underlying problem that should be addressed immediately, rather than being postponed.
Continuing to try to Boot (launch the O/S) and O/S that refuses to Boot or repeatedly cycles back to a Blue Screen or continuing to use a computer that Boots successfully but repeatedly freezes, crashes or Blue Screens can lead to serious or, irreparable damage to vital hardware components or to the System Registry or System Files essential to the normal operation of the computer.
All Error Messages contain hints or information about the likely underlying causes that generated them. Since Blue screens also tend to result from only the most serious types of underlying hardware or software fault (hence the common, morbid reference to them as examples of the "Blue Screen of Death"), Blue Screen Error messages are amongst the most detailed, informative and educational of all Error Messages. Not only do Blue Screen Error Messages isolate and indicate what software or hardware issues might probably have caused them, they also propose a range of potential remedies to the underlying cause of the symptom itself.
The correct thing to do now (just one final time) is to use the computer until it Blue Screens again but not panic or ignore it and, this time, patiently read through the Error Message carefully taking notes with pen and paper for later reference, (this is important because a Blue Screening computer could well be on the verge of total failure), understanding the likely causes, thinking back about anything the User might have unknowingly done that might have unwittingly contributed to underlying cause of the underlying fault, and then carefully and systematically implementing each recommended remedy in the proposed steps in an attempt to undo any identifiable settings, configuration, hardware or software compatibility or malware download and subsequent infection errors that can be isolated by following the Blue Screen's troubleshooting guidelines.
If, even after considering and trying all of the above first, you still are unable to precisely pinpoint the underlying cause or rectify the fault, then please add a comment with a narrowed down list of potential causes, after having, by yourself, eliminated as many potential causes as possible from the long list above and possibly even longer final list, as indicated by the text of the Error Message.
Please include in any further comment here a brief list of the remedies you have attempted and the outcomes that resulted from each attempt (as you can see from my very long reply to your more-complicated-than-at-first-glance question, within reason, you will have no constraints of space here and, as a general rule, the more accurate, relevant background information you are able to provide a cost-free remote diagnostician and cost-free remote solution provider, the better the quality, relevance, accuracy and usefulness of the answer you will receive in reply).
Hopefully this will help you isolate, identify and remedy the underlying fault, either on your own or with a little additional guidance from myself or one of my fellow experts.
