Windows 7: Multiple BSODs caused by ntoskrnl.exe (apparently) when playing games

LewiiG, most everything looks OK. If there was a problem with the disk, hopefully chkdsk fixed it. I hope Arc or someone will take a look at your screenshot of disk management. I'm not that familiar with OEM set ups. The system boots from the active partition. Your active partition is the recovery partition which is listed as empty. There's most likely a reason for that. Your CPU was released in 2009 and is getting some age on it and was an entry level CPU when released. I have one similar too, and performance is lacking. I believe mine is a T2800.The max temp is listed as 105C. But, that is the temp where the CPU shuts down. I wouldn't let it get even close to that if you can. If I may make a few suggestions. You have a 64 bit OS and 4 GB of ram on a weak CPU. It will take part of that 4GB just to run the OS, so it would perform better if you keep as few tabs open as you can. This is especially true when running any demanding tasks on it.

As essenbe said, everything is OK there after the checkdisk command.

I hope the laptop will run stable other than games.

Okay thank you both.

I have one last thing to say. It may or not be related to BSODs anymore but also could be.

Would updating the BIOS have any chance of fixing anything? I realized that it could be updated and sure enough there is a more recent version than 2009 that seems like it is for my laptop here BIOS Downloads | Toshiba - Toshiba

However, I tried installing it or whatever but was told I couldn't because my battery was less than 10%. The thing is, my battery has always been less than 10%. More specifically, it has been at 0% (plugged in, not charging) for about 2 years now when I guess the battery died. It doesn't work without the charger, so it's more like a sub-standard desktop right now.

My question is, is it worth buying a new battery (this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Battery-Toshiba-SATELLITE-Satellite-5200MAH/dp/B00AZT57MM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392740427&sr=8-1&keywords=toshiba+l500+battery) so that I can update the BIOS? Even if it doesn't fix the BSOD, which I have pretty much given up trying to fix now, is it worth it for any benefits it might have? I should probably buy the battery anyway, I just left it, but I have heard about risks when updating the BIOS so yeah.

Thanks for dealing with this up to now

Updated BIOS or new battery will not do any better. A new GPU, a new processor (which will most possibly require a new motherboard) and new cooler will revive the computer to a new one.

Okay. I see. You've both made me realize many things. I also know where my laptops stands now. Given the circumstances, I consider my problem "solved" so thank you both for all for the help!
