  1. Hi Everyone! I just had my dell XPS repaired for $600 ..(new ram, hard drives..windows 7 installed, etc) Ever since I got it back, I have had issues. I first noticed it when playing WOW..my screen would get totally filled with scrambled 'blocks'..for a lack of a better term. My computer completely freezes at that point, and I have to do a hard shut down. A couple days later, I noticed I would sometimes get notices that my computer shut down unexpectedly whilst it was idle. I have also been getting bsods, at random intervals. I'm not overly technical..but I have ran SpeedFan to check the temp, and sometimes it does read it's getting warm.. I tried putting a fan towards the computer, but this hasn't helped. I am including a few of the random .dmp files I have. If someone could give me a hint as to what is goin' on, I would definitely appreciate it.. I'm really not happy, having just spent so much to get it repaired and having it act worse now than it did before. :(

    Do you see any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?
