So about 2-3 times a day during random computer usage (internet, ms word, etc.) my computer will suddenly begin pixelating and a second later show a blue screen filled with words. The blue screen is up for about 1 second then the computer blacks out and restarts.


It takes about 10mins for it to get back to normal (regular desktop screen) then it will either:


A: Let me use it like normal until it crashes again later on.
B: Immediately crash again anywhere from 2-5 times repetitively.


This has been happening for a couple of months but has gotten progressively worse in the amount of times it crashes. It’s a bit annoying to wake up and have all my homework, browsers or projects closed out every morning.


I have researched the problem but nothing seems to be helping, I’ve tried a few virus/malware removers but it either comes up clean or just erases something that doesn’t seem to be the one I’m looking for.


Any type of help or suggestions is highly appreciated, thanks!
