  1. hi im a few minutes new and only because i have this huge problem with my laptop its really getting me down!!!
    it only happens when im playing games (sword of the new world right now) but my computer keeps doing BSOD.
    here are a number of error files i have copied from it:

    ati2cquag.dll
    Ntfs.sys
    PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    ati3duag.dll
    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    afd.sys
    XDva090.sys
    ks.sys
    atikvmag.dll
    avg7rsw.sys
    ACPI.sys
    W33ND.sys
    portcls.sys
    ALCXWDM.sys
    kmixer.sys
    USBPORT.sys

    I also have AVG antivirus 7.5 free edition, im adding this because i thought one of the errors might have had something to do with it but i might be wrong.

    sorry if this isnt very helpful i dont know what i should be saying really but if anyone has any ideas for me to try im happy to give it a go, or if you need anymore info let me know to :)
    thnx

    These suggest one of two hardware issues
    1- Memory is failing or
    2- the HD is failing

    Download Memtest from the Download area and run it 4-6 times. This is the most
    likely issue.

    oh well :)

    i had a suspicion it might be overheatin because the weather has been rather hot reasontly and it had reasontly been crashing a lot!!

    so i decided to buy an amtec fan that sits underneath the laptop and keep sit cool and guess what!!!?!

    no crash what so ever since i started using it.

    thnx for the jobeard :)
