Apologies if this should be in Am I Infected?, but I wasn't sure if it was a hardware or software issue.
For about the past week, my computer has had trouble starting. When I turn it on in the morning after being off all night, it will very rarely start, so I shut it down, and try again and it's fine. But I did notice some oddities, like VLC freezing, which has never happened before on any computer I've ever used. Then today I got an actual error.
The computer was on, and I opened Firefox. The broswer froze and I got the blue screen, with the message:
And then the computer restarted. If there was more information I wasn't quick enough to write it down. This computer has already had it's harddrive replaced after it failed about two months ago. The computer is five months old.
Can anyone tell me what I should do, or what additional information I should provide to get help?
