Windows 7: BSOD happen everytime when computer is on, no pattern, random.

BSOD happen everytime when computer is on, no pattern, random.

Hello everyone,
i bought the computer about 2 years ago, it has been working great until one day, BSOD just randomly appeared and it became worst and worst, now i can not do anything with the laptop as BSOD happens so often. When it first happened, i do not recall if i install any new software or hardware on my laptop. However, it happened when i went to the bath room and my little child just pressed randomly on the laptop. I came back out and it was too late, the laptop was shut down and when i turned it back on, that is when BSOD started to happen.

Laptop specifications: (as much as i could)
Dell XPS L412z, processor intel core i7-2640 cpu at 2.80 ghz 2.80 ghz, 8gb ram, 64 bit, windows 7 home premium.

please help me with this. Thank you in advance.

-Only use the laptop on a hard surface with nothing blocking any of the vents.
-Use a laptop cooling pad if possible
-Blow out all vents with canned air (DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor, they can damage the components).
-Ensure that the fan comes on and is blowing air out of the vent (may not happen at startup, but should happen after using it for a while).


For monitoring heat of the system, use Speccy or HWMonitor:
