I received a hand me down computer from a friend after they got a brand new computer for Christmas. I was given the information that the only issue with it is that it has issues where it will just randomly bsod. It's an older laptop, probably 5-6 years old. I'm not really quite sure how to troubleshoot or repair this issue or even how to find out the root cause. If I could get some assistance that would be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

What is the stop code you are getting?

Make sure the fan isn't clogged with dust!


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

How would I check for the code? I just got the computer so I haven't encountered it but I'm not too sure where to look it up in the event log.

Looks like most of the bluescreens are network related. Update your Intel Wifilink driver and see if that resolves the problem.
