Owned for two weeks. Everything has worked fine, but today I had a strange thing happen
I was connected to a modem Wi-Fi. I then disconnected from that modem and signed into btfon.
After this I noticed Skype contacts were all not connected, so I closed Skype down. I then immediately opened Skype up. Before it had time to load a blue screen appeared and windows has to shut down.
I was surfing as well when this happened. When I restarted, it did this automatically, all loaded fine....but Skype only loaded as far as my username, ie, i had to re enter password, which I have never had to do before. Could this be a Skype issue?
I am terrified, as I have just finished dealing with an acer that blue screened at the drop of a hat. This has only happened today once. I have put the laptop under the most extreme working pressure up until now and not a murmer, can it be just a one off?
Skype works fine and other than the usual iron (chrome) crashes nothing untoward has happened. Lightening laptop, wow
BSOD is an product of software or hardware problem.
I had a BSOD from time to time but in my case this was a software issue…the system was corrupted and I installed it again…this improved my performance.
I assume that you could boot the notebook properly and the skype runs properly too… right?
Well, maybe it was an temporal software issue… who knows… but similar Skype problem happened to me after the installation of new skype version… I presume the its necessary to login again using skype password after such major updates…
thanx for the reply. yes, it only blue screened the once ....so far. i nowstart up without skype on autostart. that way i can eliminate it from any future encounter. the blue screen was a windows event. the laptop is more stable now but i keeo getting a plug in crash with iron(chrome0. it is irritating but it is software so it does not bother me so much.
