When specifically is your computer doing this? If you can notice a problem it can help you see what is wrong.


Mine kept going to blue screen when it was using more than 80% of the RAM it had, i know its strange but the ram was damaged and so limiting how much memory and CPU programs used kept my computer going.

Generally speaking, blue screens speak to hardware errors. Most of the time trouble-codes are pretty vague. Rather than waste a lot of time diagnosing it to an issue, I would see if there's corrupted software or bad RAM. If you know your RAM manufacturer (it should say it right on one if you pull it out with the computer UNPLUGGED), there should be diagnostic software you can run on it. Alternatively, if you RAM from another computer using the same RAM type, you can try changing it out to see if the problem occurs.

Lastly, you can try a repair installation of windows with your disk by rebooting, hitting the key to enter, proceeding through install, and selecting the repair installation. If there's a corrupted file causing the blue screen, the file will be overwritten with a fresh file, thereby curing your problem. Additionally, repair installations do not touch existing software and settings you had.
