I'm running Windows 7
I got an alert that my chip was getting hot 65c, which is t THAT hot but anyway, I was playing a game which could have made it hotter then my computer just turned off. I thought it was a power surge at first but when I tried to start Windows it gets to the little Windows animation and just before the Windows come together it freezes and gives me a blue screen that say something like:
A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down. To protect your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this starts again do the following steps:
Remove any new viruses.
Something very close to that, the screen flashes very quickly and then restarts my comp.
I've tried booting into safemode and I get the same blue screen. The Windows repair function scans for about 5 mins and then tells me that it cannot be automatically repaired.
Also, something that I think is new is while it's just starting up (before the Windows animation) it says looking for drives / drivers etc.
Let me know if you need any other information. Absolutely nothing had been changed recently. I was playing a game for a few hours before it took a crap on me
Thanks in advance,
