A BSOD can be caused by bad hardware, but also by bad software. Returning a device for one unresearched BSOD is rather fast.
And, even if hardware, It could be as simple as a bad fan that could be replaced under warranty, or maybe just you running it without adequate cooling.
I would consider to switch to a gaming desktop in stead of a laptop.
Hi! I'm in the market for a Gaming Laptop.
I recently purchased (and returned) the ASUS ROG GU502GV. My games, such as Overwatch and Minecraft with Shaders, were stunning. I can't believe I've lived my whole life playing games on my Macbook at lowest settings and being ok with that! But only 9 days after purchase, I encountered the "Blue Screen of Death" stating that the computer needed to restart while having a sad face displayed. NINE DAYS and it died.
Aside from the internal failure, the computer ran very hot. Running Overwatch had the CPU temperature reach at least 96 Celsius.
So with all of that said, I’m looking for a laptop that can offer reliability, a cooler/more stable CPU temperature, great graphics, at least 144 hertz, isn’t too heavy to pick up, and can last me for many future games to come (as gaming will always be apart of my life!).
Thank you SO much in advance for any help provided!
Edit: And in addition, I'd say a price point doesn't matter at the moment. I can take recommendations, and if they're beyond what I can afford, I can still use the info to do more research into what I'm looking for.
And in FURTHER addition, I game quite a bit. I'm talking 3-4 hours straight, at the least. So that must be kept in mind for performance as well.
Sorry for so much info! I just don't want to make another mistake like the ASUS.
