guess i got the bsod, very first reboot..

hey just got this asus n53s yesterday. i dont know alot about comps by the way.
anyway i got it home, started it up and started updating and installing everything. took my dog on a walk and about an hour later came home and it said to restart to finish updating. took about five minutes of loading the shutdown mode then just went black. i couldnt do anything, it was just dead. all the sudden it had this DRIVER STATE POWER FAILURE in blue, and i still couldnt do anything, not even start up in safe mode, so i unplugged it and let the battery run out then popped back in the AC power and it started right up. no problems at all since.
so should i just take this thing back or is it no big deal.

sorry for not being more technical

Wait for at least one more crash and upload that DMP file.




We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP



You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
