My computer was destroyed by Microsofts "blue screen of death".The auto repair program didn't work. Does anyone know what "critical process died" means? Is it the main processor or the hard drive that failed?
Some additional info. I have a Gateway dx4870 with the i 3 processor. 1 tb hd and 6 gb ram, and windows 8.1. It worked flawlesssly for 2 years. Then I started getting messages to upgrade for free to windows 10. I ignored them. Then about 2 weks before the end of the free upgrade, someone tried to forcibly install windows 10 on my computer. I had no control so I pulled the plug. About 2 weeks later a message came up that said "critical process died". And up comes the blue screen of death. I tried all the repair options, but none worked except the complete wipe of the hard drive. The only thing left on the desktop was internet explorer and the trash bin. But that only lasted 10 days and up comes the bsod again. This time nothing worked. This very nice computer was destroyed by Microsofts OS.
