Starting this morning my laptop would get the blue screen of death after approximately five minutes of operation. This problem has persisted and i've deleted my only recently downloaded game, which was Snood and i downloaded it a couple days ago and did not have any problems at the time. The screen itself would only stay up for about 10 seconds at a time, but the gist of it was that my computer needed to shut down in order to avoid permanent damage. It said that if this was my first time reading this message to just let it restart, but if i had seen it more than once to check my disc space for drivers. Towards the end it begins mentioning BIOS updates and BIOS memory. To be honest, I'm way over my head, this is my first laptop, it runs on Windows Vista, and I have no idea what half of this stuff means anyways. But any help would really be appreciated. Thanks! I've tried to run Norton, but it never has time to finish a scan or anything.
