    So a few months ago, my computer seemed fine - no real problems or anything. After awhile, I would occassionally freeze or get a blue screen, but on very rare occassions. Just a few days ago, I got the Vanguard beta, which requires a 4.77 gb download - this is where the problem comes in. Every time I try to download the file, I would wait in line for 44 min for the download to begin, and after it downloads for awhile I would freeze or get a blue screen. I haven't installed any new hardware or done any huge changes to my comp, so I don't know what the problem could be. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I only seem to freeze the most when I'm dling a huge file.

    Thanks

    What is the exact error and error code from the blue screen?

    You can usually google the error codes or search for them on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

    Usually there is a file name that goes with that BSOD. What is it?
