Hi welcome to the forum.
Owing to the nature of the BSoD's I will request that one of our BSOD specialists have a look at your problem.
They are busy, and due to different time zones are not always readily available.
However, I would ask you to be patient & one will attend as soon as practical. Thank you.
Meanwhile would you download this link, the expert may require you to upload reports for analysing.

Can you give me the model number please.
Alienware, which is now part of dell computers.
Are you a gamer? Online? Have you been overclocking?
What security ware do you use to regularly scan your computer for any virus's etc?




LoL! Quicker than me JK!

Hello

Try and boot into safe mode and then run a sfc scan here's how.

1. Click start
2. In the search box type cmd
3. When the popup list comes up at the top RIGHT click the cmd.exe and run it as administrator.
4. When the command box appears type sfc /scannow, notice there is a space between the sfc and the forward slash. Here is a great tutorial on using the sfc.
