One night I possibly left laptop on idling, heard a loud humming noise, thought it was my kid's electronc toys. I came out to living room and checked laptop was on  with the BSOD with a loud humming noise. I manually shutdown laptop and went to sleep. next morning, laptop works like nothing happened? What can it be, how can i diagnose the problem.

 

Thanks

Hi. . .

 

Please run the BSOD Posting Instructions - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

 

I don't know what to tell you about the noise at this time, especially if it's gone and can't be reproduced.

 

Regards. . .

Hi. . .
 
Your other thread - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/607675/bsod-with-loud-humming-noise/#entry3954487
 
The Mods will merge them soon.
 
There were no BSOD mini kernel memory dump files in the attached zip file.
 
No signs of a full  kernel dump either (c:\windows\memory.dmp).
 
I also checked the WER (Windows Error Reporting) section of msinfo32 - no BSODs reported there either.
 
I even checked the Event Viewer logs - no signs of BSODs.
 
Are you sure you had a BSOD? Did you actually see the blue screen yourself?
 
I'm not sure what to tell you at this point other than to post if/when this phenomenon occurs again. There really is nothing for me to do at this time.
 
Are you experiencing continual system problems or was this a one-time thing?
 
Regards. . .

It happens on and off, noticed after I install an add on extension. Yes I seen the Blue screen. Sometimes windows dont shut down for some reason and system performs a chkdsk

My first guess would be that the humming noise is a fan going bad. (Like mine is right now.)

BSOD has two reasons - damaged Windows or changes in BIOS settings. Now think to yourself what you have.

I really dont know, the BSOD is happening more often. When i surf, it allows me maybe a good 1/2 hour and it comes on, any thoughts?

That sounds like a bugcheck 0x7a - KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR - kernel data from the page file could not be read into RAM. Usually caused by an I/O error.
 
HDD may be failing.

If don't know, then
1. turn off laptop,
2. remove battery, wait couple minutes and put it back, (If you have changed in some way the BIOS settings, you can get it back to its original position if you remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes - what is it - http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000239.htm)
3. if something not changed, make clean instal, ie recommended to store Your files and folders to other place, wipe partition and format it before installing.
If it also don't help, You must find out the real reason, then most likely is damaged motherboard or hard drive, but usually don't happened nothing similar.
