Okay guys, this is my FIRST post on this forum, excuse me if this is in the wrong subsection.
Last night I was unlocking my computer to do my Spanish homework. Upon login, a blue screen of death fell upon my screen stating...
Blah blah blah blah Drivers blah blah blah blah Windows Update blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Dumping memory blah blah blah blah
Contact technical support group blah blah blah blah
So then my computer restarted after the memory dump.
Lo and behold, guess what!!
All I saw was the cursor against a black screen, and pushing buttons on the keyboard brought a BIOS beep.
So I forced restart, and the same thing happened AGAIN.
Force a restart, and then turn it back on.
Computer says there is no valid operating system on my hard drive.
Now, after this incident I notice a strong smell of something sweet, like a Chinese soup dessert. (I am Chinese, I know what is smells like)
It is strongest from the air vent on the side, and extends down that side and disappears around a slot for a networking card.
I am at a loss for what to do. My father is rebuilding the OS for me, but the strong smell concerns me.
Processor: Intel Celeron M 723 @ 1.20 GHZ
System Type: Laptop
OS: Windows 7 Professional (OEM Loaded)
The only things running at the time of the incident was Microsoft Office Word 2010 Pro and two tabs of Google Chrome.
Thanks for any input!!
