Hi, I'm having this laptop that I bought not more than like 8 months ago, running Windows 7 64-bit.
Recently I was playing Icewind Dale 2, I had played for some hours, and my computer seemed pretty hot the whole time with the cooling fan system running with high noises.
Suddenly while in-game, I get a BSOD.
Restarts computer, and it starts like it should, but after short time, before I open any programs my self, it comes up with some programs stopped to work messages. Anyway I'm able to use the computer just fine, but suddenly while I'm just having a few tabs open in google chrome, I get a second BSOD.
I then donwload BlueScreenViewer, and searched up the "cause by driver
", and read something about restoring windows. So I restore windows back a date before I had Icewind Dale 2 installed. But I get a third BSOD, so it didn't work.
I tried running the newest version of MemTest(free version) and after some hours it said:" Memory error detected! Copying between 1351d8 and 134f72 did not result in accurate copy.
MemTest has detected that your computer cannot accurately store data in RAM.
You need to fix this."
Also I tried command "chkdsk /f", but didn't fix anything either
I attached a SF Diagnostics rar. file, not sure what it is or what it shows you though.
So here is also information from my latest BSOD in form of the information from BlueScreenView:

I haven't had BSOD the whole day yesterday and today, but it still seems like the same, with Shockwave crashing constantly, and some strange pixel bugs on my screen(very tiny either purple or green(matrix looking) stripes and squares at random times and random places on screen). Also it was first yesterday that I ran the MemTest program which found an error.
If this isn't the hardware not working correctly, could I just reset computer to factory settings, and then it should work as if I just got it again?
