What you need to do is go down and get yourself a 5 gallon fuel can. Fill it up with whatever fuel is handy. As long as it lights easily you should be good. I recommend kerosene for computers.

Take the computer out back (for obvious safety reasons) pour your chosen fuel all over the computer and light it up. Then sit back and watch as your problem gets resolved.



But seriously, I don't know. Good luck.

It's likely the RAM... exchange/reseat them first before anything else. RAM is like a cup with a crack on the lip. Everything is fine until it fills to that level then the cup fails... and leaks... RAM does that... and always work from full shutdown - Restarts do not touch the RAM on the NIC, nor the RAM on the CPU... only and absence of power clears RAM and laptops drain power slow... so turn off laptop and wait 30 seconds to clear DC power from faulty RAM... If it is a Dell - run diagnostics... it will test memory immediately.

Unplug all peripherals from your pc.

Update all your drivers.

See how that does. If it still bsod then you'll have to look at the logs.

Gothmog is correct, the STOP code is important to locate the source of the error. Windows 7 automatically restarts after a blue screen but changing that setting will give you time to write the STOP code down. I have no idea what the default setting is in WIndows 10 but I'm guessing it is "Automatically restart" too. Good luck.

ETA I think on WIndows 10 they changed it to a green screen of death instead of blue.

Well the photo won’t upload

It will say something like stop code: reference by pointer

Though that changes evertime

And just to clarify to everyone saying change drivers and thing like that

It happens so fast even in safe mode there is nothing I can do

Now as far as ram and removing it, that’s out of my level

But I did call the repair guy he is going to look for free and then give me a price

So I will report back with what he says

If no 0x000000.. stop code , there should also be an English translation

If not , see if you can get to WIndow's system event logs
Google how to locate Windows 10 System Event log
Dont need Application or Security

It is the same

For now , only on the Windows Insider versions

In my experience blue screens normally result from hardware failure , either RAM or Hard Disk would be my guess with a leaning toward Hard Disk.

Only if a 7b was the stop code.

90% of BSODs are not hardware
The time you worry is when a reboot or power off happens so fast , the bugcheck doesnt have time to kick in for a BSOD

I had the same thing happen, it was my power supply. Maybe that’s your problem?

Just what I wanted to say. Power supply.

If it Blue Screened in safe mode that to me suggests a hardware fault not software , hard to tell without seeing the machine though.

Still operates on 16 bit drivers .

The only way to ever be sure (and not winding up spending a lot of money uselessly ) is to have the stop codes or go over the Windows Event logs

Sorry you are having these problems. Please let us know how it works out. Based on the recommends above, if the box is sound I would go to a Linux operating system, scrub W10 off and load Win 7 but I would have that only for my favorite games. Linux emulators will do all the Windows Office stuff. Thats what most of my friends went to.

Right now I am using an old Samsung tablet and I have MS Word and Excel on it. Its Android and I have had no problems. Its much faster than my Win 7 laptop.

Cheers

It will be interesting to see what your tech guy says. Please keep us posted.

Out of curiosity, what computer are you using, and how long have you had it?

It’s a toshiba satellite I believe

I have had it for around 4 years, never had a problem with it other than the screen broke about a year ago

I don’t really download anything in to it except a few steam games 4 years ago

Basically just use it to browse news and ats, though lately I have been using it to record YouTube videos

And thank you to everyone for the help

I am very tech illiterate so it’s nuve to know I can at least ask a community and get some help
