I haven't been here in a while - the site looks so different!! Lots of things have been happening.
This morning I logged into my laptop which was in SLEEP mode but is password protected. Immediately after submitting my pw the screen turned blue. I am using the same computer now, and it seem unscathed, but I still need to get to the bottom of it.
I took a picture with my camera of everything it said on blue screen before turning laptop off.
I booted it up in regular mode, looked at some maintenance issues I have been ignoring, but there wasn't anything alarming really.
I don't regularly run antivirus and anti malware. Ok. Doing that now.
Something that has been troubling me, when I go to COMPUTER and it shows the different drives, there is one that worries me. It's called Recovery (D) and the bar is read and almost entirely full. To be precise, 296 MB free of 14.3 GB.
This is a HP Pavilion g series 64bit laptop. I am running Windows 7. I've blocked the Windows 10 update. I might have neglected other updates out of fear the Windows 10 update might be triggered but I guess I don't need to worry anymore about his issue, right? Since now the update isn't free anymore they can't just start downloading it, correct?
One more thing that might perhaps have triggered the blue screen could it have to do with the internal battery? I rarely shut down my laptop but whenever I do I get a message on my screen that says "HP BATTERY ALERT The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to bevery low. For ooptimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced. Primary (internal) battery (601)"
I have to leave the house for a while, and I'll be running antivirus etc in the meantime.
