blue screen, black screen, constant freezing as well as programs failing to respond, and only once did it reboot and then fail to find the hard drive. All test say that the hard drive is fine. I see a lot on here about video card upgrading or degrading to solve the issue of the blue screen. I'm aware that i need to find the error code on the blue screen although I'm taking advantage of safe mode working for the moment. Although it also froze as well as failed to run anything after logging in. I typicaly have to ctrl/alt/del log off then log back in and it might work. I don't want to buy a new hard drive and everthing still not work. I have a dell and use to think that was the problem. My next step is to get all error codes and try to fix each prob 1 by 1 but please if anyone has delt with this and already knows what to do please do tell. This issue seems common and my computer is a year old. Also, my comp didn't have a PID # ??????????? Look, I'm computer smart but not genius if you know what I mean. I just need to be pointed the right way.
I turn on the computer.
It loads a lot of times says there was a prob shutting down, prompts for safe mode.
It then takes 10 years to load or sometimes it just won't load at all.
If it does I get to the log in screen either frozen for a while or blacked out with only my mouse visable.
If I can log in I'll type my password and it says welcome for 10 more min.
Everytime I manage to get to the desktop Its frozen. Dell dock quit working properly. Wireless doesn't always work right either but nothing else does either.
It sometimes says a script is running that is slowing down the start up process but I have disable all unneccessary programs from running.
Blue screens are random, but the computer typically freezes a lot and then presto.
Every program runs slow, control panel not responding, bottom toolbar will freeze and nothing will be accessable.
Occasionally it will work but only for a little while till the blue screen comes in and says "sorry but you're done"
All of the above
repeat everyday every time
