    hey I've been getting this blue screen whenever i start up my laptop for a while now, BSOD i believe it's called. Basically it only happens when my laptop has been shut down for at least 24 hours (doesn't happen on a simple restart after installing a program or so), it shows a blue screen saying a problem has been detected and does a crash dump and then restarts at least 5 or more times (with the blue screen) until i can actually get to my desktop, it says more on the blue screen though i cant read it all as it goes away fast. Another thing is whenever i put it to sleep it restarts my pc instead of just staying asleep after a bit-not sure if that connected to the same issue or not. Any help would appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Press F8 on boot and select disable automatic restart on system failure so you can actually see the error code, post back.

    OK will do, i'l have to wait until the next time i see it though. Also if i remember correctly the blue screen doesn't always say the same thing, usually very similar but I've seen it say some things different in the limited time i see it. I will post the error code though.

    OK the first blue screen error code said Bad_pool_caller
    *** stop: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x0000110B, 0xAA17E2FC, 0XA7FF25A8). Then when it restarted it said Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area
    ***stop: 0x00000050 (0XEE21B3D4, 0X00000000, 0X8207DBC7, 0X00000002)
