A couple of days ago my laptop started randomly BSODing every so often, sometimes as close as 5 minutes apart, but sometimes it stays on for a few hours.
This happens while playing games, browsing websites or even when just leaving the computer alone, I really can't see a pattern.
I've tried a few different things to resolve the issue myself:
- updating drivers
to the most recent version. When upgrading the iastor.sys driver
with the latest version, they error message changes slightly, but BSOD remains and frequency seems to increase
- run anti-rootkit scanner (TDSSkiller) -> negative
- chkdsk, sfc scannow, system test that comes with alienware prior to booting into windows, they all run without issues
Finally, I've reset the laptop to the factory image from the restore partition. Unfortunately, that didn't fix the issue and I'm out of ideas.
I hope someone can help shed some light on the issue or give me some idea on what to try next to resolve the issue, I would be most grateful.
