Because there always has to be something wrong with my computer. 


I've experienced a blue screen 3 times over the last two weeks or so that shuts down my laptop. It has always happened while trying to run my RealPlayer video player. 


The first two times it happened while trying to open the player(Though by no means every time, maybe once ever 10 to 20 times). All I was able to read from it was a header that said "BAD_POOL". The last time it happened during the end credits of a movie I had watched and the header wasn't there.

I've read that power problems can cause this. Since I changed my power setting to Power Saver not long ago to help with cooling I'm going to switch back to Balanced and see if that fixes it.

 If you need further help diagnosing the problem, please download and run Speccy.  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.


 Then download minitoolbox and run it with the following boxes checked:

List last 10 Event Viewer Errors
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions, and Memory size
List Minidump files
Copy the resulting log and paste into a reply here.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
