  1. I keep blue screening random times, this is the second time in a week. I just shut it down and restart, any help?

    Go to C:\windows\minidump. Minidump files have a .dmp extension. Select all the .dmp files, right-click sending the files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload that folder as a file here

    The minidump folder is empty?

    So the computer just freezes and you have to manually shut it down?

    It makes a loud noise through my headphones, and a blue screen pops up with a bunch of white writing,something about a crash. Then I restart, yes.

    When I try to run chkdsk /f /r cmd pops up and then closes immediately, shown here (I uploaded to youtube so its easy to understand whats happening)

    Your boot hard drive is probably going bad

    Well I can open cmd through the program files but whenever I try to open cmd as a .bat file it does not open, it flashes open then closed unless I put a pause on it as shown here.

    Nice system! So you don't think that the hard drive is going bad?

    Thanks, I don't think so, maybe faulty ram? Not sure but yeah the cmd has never stayed up as a .bat file.
