Many laptop owners skip the yearly cleaning and start to see this bluescreen after a few years.
There may be a software issue but my cure rate with simple cleaning leads me to ask this.
The malware issue is worth noting as well. I like Grif's advice at http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6121_102-0.html?threadID=378815&tag=forums06;forum-threads
If those don't pan out, research the EVENT VIEWER and see if more clues are there. If there is something you are doing such as playing a video game, be sure to note that.
I've looked around the forums and cannot find solutions for my BlueScreen problem. I've had it twice in the last day. I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate with a Dell Latitude D430.

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Files that help describe the problem (some files may no longer be available)
Extra information about the problem
OS Version: 6_0_6001
Service Pack: 1_0
Server information: 55a86853-645a-491c-8cfa-2f3b9444575f
Other issues I've been having (though I'm less concerned about) have been the Windows Wireless LAN 802.11 Extensibilty Framework stop working, he Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation stop working, and finally, the Antimalware Service Executable (MpTelemetry) issue. I'm less concerned about these issues, but they've all occurred in the same day (although MpTelemetry has been a problem for a couple of weeks.) Regardless, are these problems relatable? And, please, if anybody can help me with the BlueScreen issue, and possibly the other issues? THANK YOU.
