How many blue screen errors have YOU gotten before.

I would like to know, I don't know why I just do... XD. If you post you should, you don't have to but you should, include your OS and any other information..

I've had around I think 5 right now...

I have a Windows XP Dell, that is around 2 -3 years old now... my first one occured probably about a year ago when I was trying to play a game and it glitched up... the next few kept occuring randomely when i would start up a game, not everytime just some times.

I hope that one I get a new harddrive and video card that it will fix the problem maybe... If not then I may just have to send it into a repair guy, too bad I have a lot of stuff that I could uhhh get reprted for on my computer XD, no not porn i don't have any on my computer... I mean programs and special um stuff for games XD:sweatdrop:

I don't know that I've had any under Linux. I think I've had only 1 or 2 under WinXP. The only times I made my system crash much, were when I was developing a kernel module on FreeBSD... and these were because of bugs in my own code! :p.

A good few.

Although... I wouldn't mind a blue screen if it was like this:

I had them like every 30 mins, when i used windows me. I got BSOD once or twice with xp and never with vista. I think it would be black screen'd now anyways, since the new vista theme is "black".

I have never had one, and in the last year I have had:

Acer Aspire Desktop (About a year and a half old) - Windows XP Media Center Edition
Toshiba Satellite Laptop (About 4 months old) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
HP Pavilion Laptop (About a month old)- Windows Vista 32bit

My Toshiba was hacked, and a BIOS password was put on that I couldn't get rid of, so I got rid of the computer.

that stinks... i thought i got hacked once by this one guy who used to be on these forum i used to go on, because he was running the site and he closed it down because one person pissed him off then i kept AIMing him to at least give the domain to someone then he blocked me, I thought he had liked hacked my router somehow because neither my sister nor I could connect, but it turned out my sister decided to put an ethernet cable into the hub then connect the other end back into it -.- I was freaked out for like 2 days cause I thought we have to buy a new router or hub or something

Actaully, having owned bought 'untested' toshibas on ebay. I can safely say that so far they are easy to get rid of so far. You just need a few wires!

But from my googling before hand it has been known for their laptops to suddenly ask for a bios password. although they are saved in an EEPROM (so taking bios battery out does nothing), there is still a few tools that have been made that get round this issue.

As for getting BSODs. I can pretty much say that after a few years of playing with linux, I get more kernel panics on boot up than Windows XP randomly giving a BSOD. Not that Linux insn't stable. Just that its funyn with certain hardware.

In the past I mostly got BSODs on my laptop simply because the Graphics driver kept crashing randomly from when I wake it up from standby. After a driver update, it crashes. But doesn't give a BSOD and ATI complains it needs to restart to get graphics acceleration enabled again.

Before that, on my desktop when I was playing with VLC trying to work with my capture card. BSOD straight away. But that was years ago, I don't have a tunner card anymore.

I have had quite a few, I used to get them everytime I started my laptop but that was because my harddrive was broken. Then once when I decided to see what would happen if I started svchost.exe, turns out you get a blue screen of deathorz :p and luckily only ever had it happen to me once on this computer which is an Acer Aspire L100 with Vista Home Premium.

lol I was playing around with my task manager once and went to processes because IE was messed up, I found explorer which I thought was Internet Explorer, but apparently it wasn't XP, it was actually my explorer bar which is the little bar at the bottom of the screen.... I freaked out and I couldn't shutdown my computer so i had to do it manually which thank god brought it back XP, it wasn't a blue screen but it freaked me out

I get it a few times on this computer, although I don't think it's the usual blue screen...Just one that pops up every now and then when I start my computer...And then it goes away and I go on with my business...On the computer

I agree with you Samiki in that it sounds like the graphic card to me. I tried to play Oblivion on my 4 year old Dell, and the graphics card wasn't up to it. It started to play and then boom, blue screen. I bought an xbox.

Maybe once or twice, I've had stop errors, somewhat different. On my puter I cant get to work though, I have had many, might as well post a thread about it and make MM3 fix.

5, maybe. Only two of them was really bad, the rest were just informing me that I had run out of memory.

First bad one basically said my O/S crashed and everything was ****ed. So I reinstalled Windows.

The second one was just insulting. "USER ERROR: PLEASE REPLACE USER AND TRY AGAIN." Who the hell put that in there...morons...

Only ever had one blue screen on XP, and that was a STOP error from when I got hit with a boot-sector virus, and couldn't get my hard drive to format fully. I eventually got that fixed by hooking the drive up to a friend's laptop using an IDE -> USB converter and formatting there.
