I honestly don't know where to post this because my computer is a mess but considering how dramatic this latest disaster was I think it goes here.
I have a laptop. It's about two and a half years old. For the last year or so it's been acting up a bit I guess -- the occasional BSOD in a variety of stop code flavors, sometimes the network adapter autodisables itself, sometimes the USB ports stop working, sometimes it just won't shut down and I have to turn it off by holding the power button.
Lately it's been causing me a little more concern. Over the weekend I was having the most trouble with it -- it continually refused to completely power down and the USB ports would stop working. That makes me kind of suspicious about the motherboard; it's already had the mobo replaced once but none of the symptoms of failure then were consistent with my current ones. Two weeks ago it gave me what appeared to be a graphics card-related BSOD after exiting out of a video game and trying to play a youtube video before the application had completely closed.
Then there was the incident about 30 minutes ago, in which I was playing a video game (ESO if it matters). I was in an area with a lot to load, admittedly, playing with menus, and in the middle of moving an item the game froze, my headphones started playing this weird hum, and the screen went completely red. I didn't wait to see if it would fix itself, I just turned it off using the power button immediately and on reboot everything seems functional but that's par for the course with this thing.
I was planning to get it checked out in March because of all the 'quirks' it has but with this latest thing I am quite worried. Also concerned about overheat -- Speccy is showing a ridiculous temperature of 107C on my CPU (which is apparently rated up to 105C), fine everywhere else, but Core Temp shows max 70C so I think it's okay?
Running Windows 10 updated from 8, x64
System is ~2 1/2 years old
OS has never been reinstalled
Laptop is a MSI GX70
AMD A10-5750M APU with AMD R9 M290X
Sysnative file attached, however the .zip file was never completed as it hung repeating 'waiting for tasks to complete' or something similar so I zipped it myself.
EDIT: forgot perfmon when I posted, but as it turns out I can't seem to run it anyways as it times out.
