Hello people of Bleeping Computer. My laptop has been going through a lot of blue screens lately. I can't really pin it down to anything. It never happens when I am using the laptop but when I am away or not actively using it, such as at school or maybe 3 feet away when i'm am doing something. Another problem is that the laptop rarely restarts after it blue screens but will stay on that screen for hours. I found this out by looking at the time in a program called Networx (logs how much internet traffic I use) to see what hour the log stops. So far i've actually only found it restarted once (found computer logged out, logged in to "Your computer has shutdown unexpectedly").
Thinking back on it, it may have something to do with the screen being closed, but that is only speculation. I say this because once I was listening to music through my laptop with MediaMonkey (using the media server) and and my phone (streaming the music) so I did not have my screen open. I noticed the song paused and opened the laptop to see the blue screen. Also when I leave I tend to close the screen.
Other things I have noticed is that when I start my laptop, the desktop takes a lot longer to load, usually not loading at all until I Control/Alt/Delete and go back in or Control/Shift/Esc, kill explorer.exe and start it again.This is a very recent problem as within the last week. It only applies to the desktop as startup programs will still show up such as prompts for PeerBlock and Sophos Updating status, but the desktop backgrounds and shortcut icons will not show.
I also recently got rid of a virus using malwarebytes (Trojan.Facebook), but the blue screens predate this, just thought I should mention it.
I have a Dell Studio 1555 running Windows 7 x64. Also, this is older but I had a previous topic here, it was never really solved but if you want to use it for reference. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/473711/laptop-randomly-shuts-down/#entry2883907
I look forward to solving this problem. Please and thank you.
