A few weeks ago I dropped my Gateway laptop...and ever since then, things have been going downhill. I'm currently running Windows XP. Everytime I run Avira Antivirus and begin scanning my computer, I get this blue screen...
and so on. From the research I've done, I've realized that this is most likely a hardware error, I'm guessing from dropping the laptop in the first place.
I've had Avira for quite a while though, and haven't installed anything new recently.
That being said...is there a way to find out precisely what's causing this error message? Specific piece of hardware that needs to be replaced or such?
Could it be something as simple as the USB that doesn't work on the side that it was dropped on? Thanks in advance for any info.
