So I've been having to deal with this problem for a few months now, but it didn't affect me much as I do not use my home computer all too much. I've been getting somewhat random BSODs that happen a few minutes after I log in to my account on my PC. I'm currently running on Windows 7 Home Premium and every attempt I've made at fixing this issue has been useless. A little before the BSOD happens I sometimes(not always) get an message about Windows Security Essentials. I've tried to run Malwarebytes and every time I do I get a BSOD. Sometimes my pc functions a bit better and it will work for an hour or two, before getting a BSOD or some other error. The other error I've encountered turns my screen to random lines or colour that looks something like this; https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/197880284144861185/298574749775167498/image.jpg

Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Going by the screenshot, this looks like it might be a hardware problem.

I'll move your topic to the appropriate forum.

The random and unrelated faults are often the fault of a failed CMOS battery.

If you can burn a Linux Min17.3 installation CD (can run from USB, as well),  it will give you the option to run MEMTEST prior to bootup...


Drop to a single stick in required slot, then add a stick (or replace) if it passes, then eventually test with all....


If that's good, test running Mint 17 Live CD for stability. (THis would leave your hard drive/WIndows install/possible corruption as being possible causes if Mint 17 seems to run fine..
