    K, so my computer keeps bluescreening. idk how to fix it. Next time it does it I'll take a pic of the screen and post it.

    This started maybe... yesterday.

    Far too many variables for anyone to fix your problem with your description. Even with a picture of the BSOD you are unlikely to get any help.

    I had problems with my computer about a week ago. I got some kind of trojan while visiting Deviant Art and I couldn't get rid of it. It got into my registry and everything. A friend of mine ended up coming over and reformatting my hard drive for me. That finally fixed the problem. You may end up having to do the same thing depending on what exactly is wrong.

    Might as well reformat. If not, well the only option is to bring it for repairs or get a new drive (if the drive is already on the verge of being kaput).

    80% of bluescreens are due to 3rd party drivers and / or shoddy hardware. The blue screen should mention the driver leading to the blue screen (possibly a stack trace if you let it create a dump. Once you know the culprit, you can boot into safe-mode, disable that driver, reboot, and try to find a driver that works better.

    If you're going to reformat, backup any files you want to keep and make sure you have all your drivers before starting.

    But yeah... it's the number 1 solution to any nagging computer problems.
