I have an HP laptop. It's only 2 or 3 years old.
It had gotten the "blue" screen a few times last year. However, lately it's been running like a charm.
It's a fairly good machine.
However, last night I got a series of updates, including a Norton update, as well as an Adobe update....all at once.
This morning, I booted up just fine...and stepped away from the machine to get the phone...and when I returned after a few minutes I was met with the blue screen. Blood turned to ice....heart almost stopped....
I quickly powered it down and rebooted.
Machine took a while, but, came back up. I started in as "normal" not in safe mode, etc.
I hooked up my external hard drive and started backing up projects I had worked on since my last backup of last week.
Mid backup.....pause....blue screen.
So...besides taking it to Best Buy or some place with a bunch of geeks....how can I figure out what is going on with my machine?
I've just lost my job....I hardly have extra $100's lying around to get a new computer.
