I've had my XPS 17 for a week and have run into problems. Initially, I had no problems but two days after owning the machine, picked up the first: I opened up the laptop lid and was met by a message, the gist of which was 'Windows has recovered from a blue screen error' . I rebooted and put that message in my 'lets wait and see if that happens again' memory bank.
Things went well after that until I tried installing and using a game, which would have been the first time I'd used my GT 555M graphics card in anger. Installation went well but after starting the game, the screen started flickering, messages started appearing in the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying 'graphics has malfunctioned but recovered', or something to that effect, then the laptop crashed.
I tried updating drivers (I'm 100% sure they were compatible with my card) and this made my laptop even more unstable, throwing freeze after freeze, blue screen after blue screen and refusal to boot or shut down at me.
I decided to start from scratch and did a complete factory settings restore and upon first switch on (the laptop does it's 'setting up for first use' routine) was met with a blue screen error. The error details were as follows:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 2057Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 116 BCP1: FFFFFA800BF95010 BCP2: FFFFF8800F438EA8 BCP3: 0000000000000000 BCP4: 0000000000000002 OS Version: 6_1_7601 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 768_1
The laptop then rebooted itself and seemed to run just fine. I checked the device manager and it appears windows has shut down my GT 555M card as it was reporting problems.
I ran Dell diagnostics prior to the full factory restore and beside the fact it didn't pick up the GT 555M (it did test the Intel HD3000 and that was fine), it said all was fine.
I have just rerun the diagnostics after the restore and it seems the DVD drive is now having issues too:
OPU Test - not supported Spindle Test - not supported Tray Out Test - not supported
My machines details:
Model Dell System XPS L702X Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit)

I'm An Acer Aspire 6930G user and it has vista home premium installed as OS. Today When I was trying to install Windows Xp on it A blue Error Screen Appear in the beginning of windows installing...I tried with 3 different Xp cd's but still the same problem.
Here's the full form of what that blue screen says:
The problem has detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage on your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow this steps:
Check for viruses in your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers.Check your hard drives to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
Just got a new E6400 and even before VISTA had fully loaded 1st time, it had bluescreened and showed a minidump with errorcode 9F = DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
Error occurs very often when going to sleep mode, and sometimes when doing reboot or shutdown.
Computer then hangs for 5-10-15 minutes before rebooting and showing the VISTA error report. Now, 2 days after 1st power on, I've had probably 10 BSOD's during sleep / restart / poweroff operations .....
I just got my new carbon touch thinkpad today, and I couldn't be happier, until I closed the lid and reopened it a couple of minutes later. The screen froze for a while and then I got a BSOD with the notice CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. I hoped it would be just some coincidence, and updating my drivers and installing windows updates would solve it. So I did, and closed the lid again. After reopening it, I got the same error. So I figured I could just as well restore to my factory settings. Without luck. After updating everything for a second time, still no luck. I check the disk and did a memory check, but everything seems fine. The lenovo Solution center isn't reporting any issues either. I looked into the minidump created by the blue screen, and it seemed the process failing is called csrss.exe.
Every time I start my laptop Inspiron n5110, it goes to the blue error screen where it says 'collecting data for crash dump'. It usually happens in under a minute after starting the laptop. Once the screen shows I have to force restart by pressing the power key for few seconds.
I own the Compaq presario laptop and in October it started giving me problems. I would get a blue screen with an error warning. This progressively got worse. It seems the only way I can get my computer to even power up is to lay it on it's side. Yesterday I resinstalled the restore disc. Now (still with it laying on its side) I am getting an error called Windows Boot manager. It says, "Windows failed to start, a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix this problem, insert the windows installation disc and restart computer." I did a computer check on the hard drive when it was up a few days ago, and it seems to be fine. I am running windows vista.
I just recently removed vista and upgraded to Win7 32 bit. I tryed to add 4gb of RAM, due to the factory 1gb it came with. However got a Blue screen Error. After that I only installed 1 of/ 2gb stick of RAM and it worked.
My question is, I need 4gb of RAM for this c700, Should I update the Bios for Win 7. By doing so will the c700 allow me to install the 4gb of RAM and work?
I am facing serious issue with wirless adapter in my laptop. When ever system is on idle for 15 min continuously WiFi signal opened then system will reboot with blue error screen showing hardware problem .
Yesterday before I went to eat lunch I turned on my laptpp and signed in. When I came back it had a blue screen with a kmode exception not handled error. After waiting an hour the getting data portion was stuck on 0 still so I forced turned it on. After that the moniter wouldn't turn on even though the laptop was on, I heard the turn on noise and could hear the fan running when I listened. I tried taking the battery out and holding the button for 30 seconds and putting it back in and after a few times it managed to turn on with the screen. But it froze at the start up logo and after another hour I turned it off and havnt been able to get the screen back on again. Is there anything else I could do?
I am trying to find a solution to repair a Vista (Home?) installation on an Aspire 5920. The laptop blue screens with a Stop error code 00000F4 when booted in either Normal and Safe Mode. This problem started after installing a program although it may also have a malware/virus problem. The inbuilt Startup Repair and System Restore both fail.
I have the Acer Recovery disks but the Acer eRecovery website suggests that all personal data will be lost if they are used. Is it possible to repair the OS installation from the recovery disks instead of reinstalling it?
i've frequantly had this problem , when i start my laptop ( hp pavilion 15n021se ) on the lock screen when i'm going to click to enter my password , just after moving mouse cruser i get the blue screen saying that the error is " invalid process attachment attempt "
i searched for this error and most results was meeting my thoughts that the cause for this error is the touch pad driver .
i've installed the latest version of the driver (sp64225) , and it doesn't suitable for my windows so i want a previous version of the driver
