BSOD on Compaq 8710W laptop

  1. #11


    Hi Koolkat,
    Are you saying my crash was caused by overheating?
    My laptop was sitting on my kitchen counter and I wasn't even doing anything actively at the time.
    But, I did have programs running. (Firefox, Quicken, Adobe Reader, Turbotax, OneNote)
    I opened up the laptop about a month ago and completely blew it clean. I'll do it again if it needs it.
    Thanks for the help!

    It could be, seeing the temperatures.

    Hi oooooooooold

    Can you confirm if your problem was caused by heat or not? Any other clues?

    I am having a similar problem while transferring large files over my LAN after upgrading to a faster wireless router. I know this alone shouldn't cause my laptop to crash but it is. I am starting to suspect my 4965agn NIC.

    On 5Ghz net I get crash with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
    On 2.4Ghz net I get DISPLAY DRIVER STOPPED RESPONDING AND HAS RECOVERED.

    Next step is to try a USB wireless key to see if the problems continue.
