Windows 7: Problem.. Urgent.. help

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

You might want to check this setting. Press the windows key and the pause/break key. Then go to Advanced system settings, upper left of screen. In the box that opens go to the advanced tab and click the settings button under startup and recovery. If "Automatically restart" is checked, un-check it. If you are getting blue screens un-checking this option will let you see them and then you can write down the error code.

How do you do minidumps?

I am a bit unsure.. the only thing that it might be is PerfLogs which I dont have access to. (My account is admin so>.>)

Edit: I did the access thing, there was folder in that titled Admin (Had to get access to that) in that, there was nothing. o.o

edit edit: One thing that is strange is now, whenever I plug in my mouse, it works. I wonder if there is a small thing that happened. Okay cross that.. My mouse just doesn't want to work AT all. It works sometimes..

It happened again, so I am getting a little worried.

It did kind of feel a bit warm before it happened.

Can someone please help me?

You wil need to start being more specific.

Please replace "it" with the correct noun.

We also teach English.

Just go to the website for your netbook and search there for the specs for your netbook or read you manual or google "maximum memory for (the manufacturer and model of your netbook)" . Without the quotes and parentheses.

You will continue to have mouse problems until you get a quality mouse.

HP is a quality manufacturer.

Well the BSOD/Reboot trouble happened again and well I used it because, I just typed it so I am sorry about the error.

The maximum memory is 1gb... .-. So I'm sure now that I will either have to reduce the stuff that causes strain and heating problems or get a new laptop, a proper laptop with at least 3gb of ram. And right now, I wouldn't be allowed to get a new laptop so I will just have to reduce my high ram taking tasks.

edit: Wrong one, I can upgrade to 2gb of ram so, I'll just have to see.

You can monitor you temps easily with either Speccy or CoreTemp.

there are links for both in my sig.

You reduce your temps by:
1. choosing PowerSaver as a power plan,
2. reducing your display brightness
3. directing a desk or table or floor fan at your netbook.

I always use PowerSaver and keep my brightness to a minimal usable setting. Then fan gets used on hot days or if the temperature reaches a high level.

Okay once I get back on my netbook I will download Speccy,

Question: What are the tempertures that I should be keeping my netbook at?

If you suspect an overheating problem there are a couple of things you can do. One is always use your Netbook on a hard flat surface, don't rest it on a pillow, blanket or anything soft that is going to block the cooling vents on the bottom. Another option is too get a small can of compressed air and use it to blow any dust that may have accumulated in the cooling vets. You can get it at most computer shops and retailers that sell computer accessories. And as mentioned you can run an app to monitor your temps in real time while your using your PC. What you want to watch are your processor temp and video card temps, if it has the sensors. Also cooling fan speed. The BIOS should show you your CPU temp, but that will not be under load. Look though your BIOS settings and see if there is a setting for over temp shutdown or over temp warning. A lot of desktop motherboards have these settings but your Netbook may not. You may be able to adjust the settings so you get a warning (Beep) before it actually shuts down. Just have a look for those settings and post what they are set to here before changing them. Like I said though you may not have them, laptops/netbooks are usually quit limited with BIOS settings compared to a desktop motherboard.
If it is overheating its because there is something wrong with it, its not because you are using X number of apps or because you only have 1 gig of RAM. My daughter has an HP Mini and its basically on 24/7 running facebook, playing videos, music and or doing a video chat and as far as I know its not overheating. Her worst complaint is that it slows down under load.

I only use my netbook on my lap because I don't really have a hardsurface to use it on, unless a book can count for that? (I have loads of books,) For my mouse I actually set it on books because I don't have a desk. .-.

Also I think the reason my computer is having problems now is because I have been recently doing video editing. (Bad idea) and trying to upload it to youtube, The quality is set on 720p I also do a lot of image editing (Another bad idea)

Right now I have my computer set to Power Saver, uninstalled some games and things I don't need. I do still have a few things.
I haven't had a problem for now maybe because I uninstalled Windows Live Collection and Google Chrome. My mouse is.. working okay, It seems as if it's not causing the problems so I am just slowly taking this step by step to eliminate the problem.

Edit: Does anyone know a good spell checker for Internet Explorer? As I need some help sometimes when spelling words so I do need some sort of checker.

edit edit: Installed Speccy

Ram and Motherboard temperatures 40 - 50

Hard Drive stays at a cool 35 degrees.

It feels a lot cooler than normal. Which is making me happy. ^ ^

edit edit edit: Watching videos on youtube = Max temp = 63 degrees.

Using it on your lap should be fine. The point I was trying to make was you don't want to block the cooling vents on the bottom of the laptop. Putting it down on your bed (blankets) or a pillow or any soft surface that can smother/cover up the air vents will cause it to overheat. Summer temps in your room can cause it to run at a higher temp too. My quad core Athlon II is running at 33 C and speccy shows my motherboard temp as 40 C. This room is on the cool side. 40 to 50 is on the warm side but I wouldn't panic over it. I would expect a laptop or netbook to run hotter than a desktop. If I get a chance I'll have a look at my daughters HP Mini and see what kind of temps she's getting. I'll post back when I get a chance. I've got a few other items on my to do list before I can get to that.

EDIT: I personally consider Logitech to be a quality brand, even so they do fail from time to time just like any other make. Try that mouse in another PC to see if you have the same problems. If you do then the mouse may actually have failed. If not then its a glitch with your netbook. One thing that can happen with sudden reboots like that is system files get corrupted and then other weird things can happen. Once you get one or two spontaneous reboots the odds go up that you'll get more. Running the system file checker may be a good idea at this point.
