I haven't touched the "broken" laptop in a few weeks. Been using my older laptop, have it cleaned up and running really nice so I'm not too concerned about the other one. When I do get back around to trying to fix it though, I will use some of the tips in this thread to see if I can get it to work. I'm thinking a system restore will probably work. If not, I'll try to reinstall my video driver, because it does seem like that could also be the problem, since the issue only happens when I seem to open media-intensive webpages. For example, I don't seem to get the blue screen when I open something simple like RPGWatch, but if I try to load up a Gamespot page, it's almost guaranteed to crash. I'm hoping that's what it is anyway. By this description it also seems like it could be a bad memory stick, but for some reason I don't think that's it. Just a gut feeling I have I guess. I'll give these suggestions a whirl when I get around to it and post my results.
