My laptop has started messing up and i have no idea what the cause is or the cure so any help will be much appriciated. I will outline what is happening and what happened:

I was just using my computer when a blue screen flashed
A message saying windows is about to reboot flashed and windows shut down.
Then when i restarted my computer i got an error message saying: "windows has a serious error. Would you like to send the error report?"

So now when i use windows application like IE it the frame freezes. the same for my computer.

I have no idea what the problem is so excuse me if i'm posting this in the wrong part of the forum, but any help will be greatly appriciated. Please help..

Please check your Event Viewer for the exact error message. Here's some links on how to do it:

Another thing to try is this: Go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery Settings

Uncheck Automatically Restart

Click Apply and then OK

Now when you receive a blue screen the computer will pause on it and you will have to reboot manually.

The 'Blue Screen of Death' (or BSOD) is refered to by Microsoft as a Stop Message. They can occur for many reasons. In order to diagnose it's cause we need as much info as you can give about the stop message. Please write it down and post it back here the next time it happens. In particular, it helps to have the somewhat cryptic series of numbers about half way down the blue screen that have this sort of format:

0x0000008E (Followed by four other sets of numbers in parenthesis.)

It is also helpful to know the answers to these questions:
  • What are you doing when this happens (are you on line, starting the computer, etc).
  • Does it always happen at the same time?
  • Is it always the same message, or is it a different set of numbers each time?
  • Have you added any hardware or software lately?
  • Are you experiencing any other buggy behavior from this computer (such as it runs slower than it used to, etc)?
