I have a four-year-old Dell Inspiron 5537. It's always worked perfectly fine, until three or four days ago, when suddenly (and with no discernible pattern) it began throwing up BSODs. The error info is always either "critical process died" or "unexpected store exception".
I've run CHKDSK; no errors found. I've executed the /scannow /r function; no errors found. Ran a deep virus scan; no viruses detected. Ran a malware scan; none found.
I tried refreshing the system; the BSODs persisted. Finally I did a clean install of Windows yesterday, and so far (knock on wood) I've only had one BSOD since (before that they were happening every couple of hours.)
This is driving me nuts, because I have absolutely no idea what might be causing it. I haven't installed any new software or hardware, so I'm sure it can't be that. And I'm really hoping that someone here will have some ideas, or at least give me some new advice on how to track down the issue (and I'm keeping every finger crossed that my hard drive isn't about to die on me.)
Thanks in advance for any info!
