Blue screen
Hey guys,

My computer has running perfect until like 20 minutes ago. I had turned on my computer and started to start up my daily programs when my computer started making this screeching sound (through my headset) and it brought up a blue screen. I didn't have much time to see what the blue screen said, but in a matter of seconds my computer booted back up asking if I wanted to go into safe mode. I booted windows normally and when I came to my desktop screen, I saw that all my personalized things we're back to their default state. Now everything is running fine, but I'm still a little worried. Have an idea why this happened?

Thanks.

RE: Blue screen
You're sure the screeching sound was not coming from something else, like your graphics card or power supply?

RE: Blue screen
Well I have no idea what would cause your headset to output a screeching sound, but blue screens have many possible causes.

Have you run Memtest86+ yet?

RE: Blue screen
You download this: http://www.memtest.org/download/4.10/mem...10.iso.zip

Then unzip it, and burn the ISO to a blank CD. Put the CD in and boot to it.

A blank DVD would also work. Anyways blank CDs are really cheap, you can get 100 for $10-$15.

Alternatively, if you have a flash drive you can try running it off that: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/testing-you...atibility/

There's a version for USB keys too: http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

And that screeching sound is normal when a crash occurs.
