Windows 7: Different types of BSOD on "new" laptop

Different types of BSOD on "new" laptop

I really wanted this model because it had a half-decent video card, the store i bought it from (Flanco) only had 3 exposed one (as in exposed in showroom) and the one i bought went through service because of a "minor keyboard problem". I can't return it without huge hassle because of stupid store regulations and even if i could, i can not find a better model for the money and also lose my 3 year special offer warranty

That was BS.

I have two types of errors on this machine: random complete freezes and random blue screens of different causes.

The first one i seem to have solved by giving priority to the network adaptor when booting.

The second one i need help with.

I'm pissed as hell to have spent my hard earned money on a broken "new laptop" , i need to know if this is a hardware problem or a software one(one blue screen rendered the "memory_management" message ,because i will go back to uni and need to fix it some time before that.

I installed the latest drivers for the video card, network adapter and AHCI. Amd also provided usb drivers in the AHCI package.

Note that i have not installed other drivers like wireless adaptor or HD sound in the hopes of making troubleshooting easier.

They happen 1-3 times a day.

I attached the info and will provide more details as needed , thanks.

UPDATE : it froze again requiring a shutdown and restart.

Have not found any logs produced following this, except for an unexpected system shutdown log.

Sent it in for repairs, will post results , though my expectations are very low.

Most likely they will offer me another laptop from the current offer - which is pretty bad, the offer i mean.

View all file types when saving with "Save as"
Hi, When saving a file using "Save as" (From Office, for example), I can see in the target folder only the files matching the selected type. Is there an option to see all file types immediately, regardless of the selected file type? This would be very helpful, especially when looking for files...

WMC suddenly showing unwanted file types in "Pictures."
Formerly WMC only showed .jpg and .tiff files. Now it's suddenly, and without any prompting on my part, showing my raw .cr2 files. Because I don't want the codec installed to view them (making their deletion by accident more difficult and helping to speed up my system), they just show as grey...

How to easily change the "Type" description of file types in Explorer
G'day everyone After doing some Googling I discovered that it is impossible in Windows 7 to sort files by file extension -- one can only sort by file type, which depends on the file type description. This means that if I want to sort by file type, I need to rename the type descriptions of all...
