I have been getting the BSOD nonstop. When logging into my password protected account, it stays up for about a minute or two before blue screening on me. For the main user account, it just BSOD's immediately after login.
Safe Mode also actually blue screens, but less so - I was able to attain the dump files and what not, so I can still open it.
I've also noticed I can't connect to the internet either - the network icon on the bottom right was always loading when I was able to log into either account. The internet doesn't work on Safe Mode either - not sure if that's always the case or not (sorry, not very tech savvy).
Windows popped up with this when I was able to login as well, if this helps at all:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Files that help describe the problem:
My windows 7 is:
- 64 bit
- Vista was originally installed, but I was able to attain a Windows 7 upgrade disk from Dell
- The hardware is about 1 1/2 years old, the current OS is about the same
Thanks for the help in advance.
