When I turned on the computer for the first time today, after loading, there was nothing but blank blueish black screen. I rebooted. Everything loaded. Within a minute, again the same type of screen appeared. I rebooted again. This time, I got a message saying Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown. Here is the dump file:

Let's collect some more information: I'll have a look at it and help you try to resolve the problem.

:step1: Please follow the instructions: BSOD Posting Instructions: Windows 7 - Vista

(Note: When you run BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_.exe, it will also run autoruns.exe ... and both need to be in the same location!)
... with one exception in the following line:
  • "4. Zip up the entire output folder + PERFMON and attach the zip file to your next post."
The BC forums will allow a total attachment size of only 512 kb (and what you need to attach will exceed this limit). Please upload the zip file to a file sharing website of your choice and and post a link to it in this thread so that we can access your uploaded zip file. I will have a look at the contained information and see if I can shed some light on your BSOD issue.

See the suggestions in the following links for recommendations on file sharing websites:
  • http://lifehacker.com/388284/best-online-file-sharing-services
  • http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/15-great-free-online-file-sharing-alternatives/
  • http://www.smashingapps.com/2008/08/28/5-best-free-file-hosting-services-to-store-your-files.html

:step2: Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, and post a link to it in this thread.
  • It is a convenient and accurate way of providing us with details of your computer specifications.

:step3: Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
  • Checkmark the following checkboxes:
    • List Installed Programs
  • Click Go.
    When the scan is finished, a text file will open in a Notepad window.
  • Copy the entire contents of the Notepad window, and paste in your reply.
    (Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.)

Google is my friend. Make Google your friend too.

Thank you for offering to help figure this out. All info asked for in this post. Also, for the first time in a week, there has not been a crash after starting up! Before I turned on the computer, I cleaned the inside of it. There was tons of dust around the RAM and such. I don't know if that has been a cause of the trouble but I guess it could have helped a bit.

Within minutes of starting up the computer, it froze. I was playing GTA San Andreas.
