So just yesterday I was on ats and I got a blue screen saying my computer crashed and was restarting

It then proceeded to do this against and again, at a much more rapid pace

I had not downloaded anything recently, wasn’t in any shady sites

I looked up this problem and it seems to be common, and may have something to do with a bad driver

So I tried to do what was suggested, looking for Windows updates and things of that nature

The problem is that the computer crashes before I can do anything (usually about three minutes after I sign in)

I finally decided to do a complete system restore (I don’t have anything really I would mind losing so that is fine by me)

But again the problem is the system restore will start running (says it may take two hours).and before it finishes my computer crashes to the blue screen again

I am stumped and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions

Have you tried running in safe mode?

Do you have a Windows disk or USB? Could try booting from disk or USB as you may get a repair option, or worst case, complete reinstall

Can I system restore from there?

Boot up in "safe mode". Instructions

That might help with the drivers, as only the absolute basic version of needed essential drivers are loaded.

Results?

I don’t believe I have a windows disk or anything like that

Now I could take it to a shop, but I don’t want to waste my money if nothing can be done

Just ran safe mode twice, both times it still crashes to the blue screen

I think it might be toast for this computer

The most pain free option would be get a disk and do a reinstall (if, as you say there's nothing of value on your HD), additionally Win 10 is crap, get Win 7

If you can get a trial version on Linux and see if it runs stable.

Also do you have possibly any aftermarket parts that may be outdated? IDK if that could be the cause but it is not out of the realm of possibilities.

Pull one stick of RAM at a time and fire up your PC. Also listen to your HDD for odd noise and check event viewer for disk errors if it will run that long. Also, look for swollen capacitors on your mainboard.

Check and make sure all fans are running. I've seen machines overheat and bluescreen like that. Basically, it is shutting itself down to keep from damaging any hardware, if there is a fan going out or dead.

AHH yes try this please. Maybe a port has gone rouge you could say. That would definitely cause that to happen.

And if he also has a fan sensor and the fan is a bit old it may just need a drop or two of oil. But I highly doubt that is the case.

Go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools, disk cleanup.

Delete all the error reporting files. This may be one way to temporary fix your pc.

Use a program called whocrashed, it’s free.
Analyze your BSOD log to determine why the crash is happening
Google is your friend 👍🏻

PM me if you get stuck.
I fixed a bsod the other day that was caused by Mcafee.

Hold on . Do not do anything

What was the stop message ?
There is also a hex stop code starting with 0x000000 (then 2 major characters)

If I know that , I can most times tell you precisely what is going on.

Apologize for being late...
