Have you..

Dusted it out with a compressed ait can?

Let me comment your post is too light on details. You noted the make/model, but for best effect supply a short detail and the age of the machine.

IF IT'S IN WARRANTY, use it.

Number of issues

In reply to: Major Problem Please Help

Chances are that one's out of warranty.. These can bluescreen from Bad RAM or even a failing hard drive. As well as worse issues with systemboard problems. Bobs right a little more info is needed but you can try booting into BIOS and see if it stays running for an indefinite ammount of time, Run Memtest86 for basic info and post your results..The fact its gradually gotton worse is a good indication of a RAM slot which is not uncommon on these models either. Try pulling one stick out at a time and running on one and see if it acts normally.

Info

In reply to: Number of issues

Well, I really don't know what info you want. It's almost a year and a half years old, and it happens usually when I connect the webcam. I have a warranty with Compusa but they usually put us through ALOT of trouble.

New webcam?

In reply to: Info

Bob means blow the dust from the radiator vents. Possibly overheat? Canned air from Radio shack.. If its only doing it with the webcam running I'd try another webcam.....

Don't get hungup on the webcam (part deux).

In reply to: New webcam?

A webcam might be 20 bucks. Fixing the issue at some shop usually starts at 120 bucks (where I live.)

Do the math.

Good luck finding the issue.

In reply to: Webcam

I have yet to read any more information, or if you did anything at all to help yourself out of this dilemna.

Wishing you well and sorry that your webcam was so expensive. At least new ones are cheap cheap.
