I have been getting BSOD on my laptop for over a month now. It only ever happens upon waking up from sleep, never when starting it up. I've tried to used System Restore but I don't have any restore points that go far back enough. I have tried resetting to factory settings but the same problem has happened again, not sure if it's the same incident because I'd have thought a reset would have solved it, so likewise I'm not sure another reset will change anything. I've done scans with multiple anti-viruses (obviously no two at the same time), and I apparently I don't have a virus. I thought it might have something to do with the registry so I scanned for problems in the registry in both CCleaner, but despite what it tells me, nothing has changed. I also did scans with AVG PC Tune-Up which didn't do anything, either. I was considering booting from an OS disk but I only want to do that as a last resort, and if it's going to work.
Aside from BSOD, other problems include the Flash container plugin crashing midway though Flash videos (which can't be down to Flash player, because I have the latest version), playback lagging in Media Player Classic Home Cinema, even though I have the CCCP codec pack installed, and lastly when playing games, sometimes the .exe will crash or the game will jitter, even offline games, even on low graphic settings, even with the latest graphic card drivers
And so I'm at a loss.
And I don't have any error codes handy, unfortunately.
