    Blue Screen Error Message on windows 7 Or Xp.


    I am using windows 7 32 Bit on my Dell Notebook. However, if I am keep using it for one to two hours then I get Blue screen error. Do not know why?

    Steps I used:

    1) Re-install OS. (No use)
    2) Update drivers. (No use)
    3) Update anti-virus. (No use)
    4) Update windows. (No use)
    5) Used cooling pad. (No use)
    6) Used widnows Xp Or windows 7. Same thing happen.

    Any suggestion that would help.

    These errors can be caused by both hardware and software issues, and it can be difficult to troubleshoot the problem. The following tools and methods can often help get Windows up and running again.

    (1)Restore your system using System Restore option.
    Click on Start button, open All Programs in that select Accessories, then select system tools. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (2)Open Action Center
    Clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, and then, under System and Security, clicking Review your computer's status.

    Click Maintenance.

    (3)Updates your system.
    Go to Start, Control Panel, Windows Update. Select check for updates.

    (4)Check your computer for hard disk and memory errors
    Open Start button , and then clicking Computer.

    Right-click the drive that you want to check, and then click Properties.

    Click the Tools tab, and then, under Error-checking, click Check now. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    To automatically repair problems with files and folders that the scan detects, select Automatically fix file system errors. Otherwise, the disk check will report problems but not fix them.

    To perform a thorough check, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. This scan attempts to find and repair physical errors on the drive itself, and it can take much longer to complete.

    To check for both file errors and physical errors, select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

    There are many reasons for BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) to appear. You have already re-installed the OS but the problem still persists so there is a strong possibility of a failing hardware. I recommend you perform an extended test using the Dell 32 bit diagnostic. This utility will work only if you have not formatted the hard disk. You just have to keep tapping F12 key at start up and see if you get an option to perform the diagnostics.
    It will be better if you can post the exact error code here so that we can continue with further troubleshooting. It could be a problem with your hard disk or the graphic card. Please Google the error code and update the post with relevant information.

    All the best.

    I did format my Laptop and after that I open My Computer-> C:Drive & D: Drive-> right click-> Prpperties-> General Tab-> Disk Cleanup

    Then reboot.

    Update windows and Antivirus.

    After that, I used OS disk and and repair windows and still get the same issue.

    Fayaz, I did re-install my OS and update drivers however, still getting the same issue.

    Then you would check your ram and hard-disk. This may happen due to the poor ram or hard-disk
