    BSOD using laptop during vacation


    Hi. I went on vacation with the family two weeks ago and tried connecting to the wifi at the place. None of the laptops we had could connect, only mobile devices could. So I turn off my laptop and come back five hours later. I turn it on, take a shower, and come back to it turned off. Nobody had touched it. The problem kept occurring every time I turned it on. I never saw it actually turn off by itself until I got home. It was BSOD with no specific error. Just BCCode 7A every time. It usually happened when my computer was idle (I tested it overnight by leaving the LoL launcher on and it didn't BSOD) but now it also happens when my laptop overheats. I already tried chkdsk /r. I think it might be my memory.

    tl;dr

    My laptop started BSODing while afk/overheat for no known reason. Didn't change any settings (except msconfig startup programs) or update anything. Tried system restore and it didn't work either.

    Okay so i have had a look and i think its Memory Related.

    Please can you run a Disk Check for Every Drive you have in your system.

    Disk Check

    And also try Memtest+

    RAM - Test with Memtest86+

    Be sure to tell me how it goes.

    Alright so I just opened up my laptop and found a stick of ram that somehow fell out and plugged it back in. Do you think this was the cause of my problems?

    Those can't just fall out so it wasn't inserted correctly. That would definitely cause errors.

    Last person that touched it was the tech sent in from dell or someone like that to replace my heatsink. Was working perfectly fine until just one day it decided to pop out. Maybe the car ride bumped it out? :\

    Okay so I did chkdsk and it said something about it being clean. Then I did memtest86 and got 8 passes no errors. My laptop still gives me bsod out of nowhere usually when it's overheating. It's overheated plenty of times before but never gave me this.

    Overheating could be your problem.

    Over time the System will get weaker.

    Okay well today i got bccode F4 after windows tried to update. Every time I shut off my computer and start it up, it would always try to configure windows for update, hit 11% and then "failure to configure changes" pops up and computer restarts. The second time it turns on, it hits 35% and just skips to login screen. Except this time it didnt even hit 11% before it blue screened.
