Hello all, I'm hoping someone is able to help me with my BSOD problems. They are attacking me randomly, sometimes (well most of the time) in lecture. Just now I had a BSOD in lecture, rebooted, and got another one immediately afterward...missing out on like five minutes of lecture (paper and pen time eh? :P )
I am on a HP laptop - dv7 4060us
Processor: AMD Phenom II N830 trip-core processor @ 2.1ghz
RAM: 8GB Crucial RAM (upgraded from original 4GB)
Hard drives: 500GB SATA drive & upgraded second hard drive - 60GB Patriot Pyro SSD (Micro Center - Patriot 60GB 2.5" SATA III 6Gb/s Pyro Solid State Drives (SSD) with SandForce 2281 Controller PP60GS25SSDR
Video graphics: nothing worth mentioning
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64, downloaded from MSDN
Purchase date: around summer 2010
This has been happening for several months now...I'm ready to throw this laptop at the wall. My primary boot drive is the SSD, so everything rungs there. Programs are on my 500GB regular SATA drive.
These blue screens occur by having the screen freeze up (mouse is the spinning icon). Mouse is movable, but nothing is openable. Ctrl+alt+del does nothing, opening programs do nothing, everything is frozen on screen. I use caps lock to check if the laptop is still (somewhat) responsive ... the mouse continues to move and the caps lock LED goes on and off as I press it. At some point, it stops moving/LED turning on and off, and it hits the blue screen.
Sometimes it recovers (very rare), but the screen will lock up and close to 30 seconds later, it recovers and carries out everything I clicked.
I tried running memtest and it looked good...but this is also an HP laptop so cooling on this sucks s--t and my laptop becomes a bunsen burner. But before it killed itself, there were no errors...
But yeah I'm confused. If someone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it!!
Edit - just got another one in lecture...smh.
