Hello,

Here is a link to my old thread, which is when problems started. School started up and I just pretty much put up with the random bluescreens after standby etc., but then it started bluescreening when I was watching youtube - mostly high-definition videos like 720p-ish. So I just avoided those, but then I noticed it started crashing randomly - such as when I was doing a search with malwarebytes anti-malware.

I have many, many minidump files - here are the ones from September and the latest from October. I'm guessing it's the hard-disk that is the problem, so I've been looking into this. Unfortunately I'm not sure when I'll be getting my student aid refund, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to upgrade my HDD. Is there anything I can do as a bandaid fix until then? I'd appreciate any help I could get. Thanks!!!

You could run a Linux OS from a flash drive in the meantime. You should still be able to read files from your hard drive. This assumes there aren't any underlying issues with the motherboard or hardware controllers.
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

Okay, well I can't even get the computer to stay on long enough to finish booting anymore, so I'm not sure if it's the HDD or the motherboard. It's seeming more like a hardware issue at this point, so I'll have to take it to the shop, unless anyone can think of anything I'm missing?
