I just picked up two G570's on 1/8/12 --one with the core i5 and one with the Pentium processor. The pentium one has rebooted a few times on its own (BSOD according to my girlfriend who was using it at the time). Is there a known issue with this on these models? Mine has been ok so far the but the other one has rebooted twice unexpectedly and the only software installed since purchase is MS Office 2007. Only IE was being used when it rebooted. I found one other post about this on this model but there was no resolution posted.
Thanks in advance
Firstly, if your laptops have the Western Digital hard drives, 500Gb @ 5400rpm, i'd replace them with another brand.
I have had two near new hard drives cause issues and crash. I am happily using a Patriot Pyro SSD in one and a Seagate Momentus XT 500Gb in the other.
Secondly I have heard many complaints about IE9 causing issues (including BSOD's) also, I have not "upgraded" from IE8 and do not have these issues others have.
Hope this helps in some way

This thread points to the AHCI driver, but I also found that some of your crashes could be due to the AV program, IE9, or a combination of one or more.
Maybe try a different browser and see if it happens, and maybe try MSE and see if it happens.
That thread also points to a different diagnostic program for crashes because it says that the one that I gave you sometimes blames the OS when it isn't. Like for instance, your system32 crash.
