I left my Sony Vaio VGN-NS190D on when I left a few Fridays ago, and when I returned on Monday, it had gone to sleep by itself like it normally does. However, I've recently discovered that when it goes to sleep without me pressing the "sleep" button, when it restarts again the blue screen pops up. SO FAR, it hasn't been too serious because I am able to reboot my computer from the blue screen and the system simply restarts and everything looks normal. However, this is very troubling to be (blue screens scare the bleep out of me) so I'd like to know if anyone can recommend any actions I can take to fix this issue. It's never happened before, and if I shut down my computer or press the sleep button, the screen doesn't pop up. I also get the blue screen when I just close my computer top without hitting shut down first. I've already gotten a blue screen many many times, but somehow I feel like one of these days it'll just be a fatal error and I'll have to scrap this laptop, which I don't want to do.
I also can't tell if this is a problem with my Vaio or not, but it's fairly new so I don't really think so. I'm hoping for suggestions to fix the issue so I can stop constantly worrying that someday I'll get a complete crash and won't be able to turn on my laptop at all anymore. Also an explanation of what's happening would also be great.
Thanks in advance!
