Blue screen forces to reinstall windows

2020-10-07, 3:48 AM

I have a X1 Extreme 2nd Gen received on September 1, and today appeared the blue screen claiming "device has a problem ...", after a few minutes of operation after restart, blue again, finally the system did not start never again making terrible sounds during the reboot, Finally, the only solution was to restore Windows losing all my files and installed software. Now I do not know if it is my feeling the laptop is too hot. I want to know if the problem is only software related or can I expect hardware damage and return of blue screen.. Anyone similar experiences, plese let me know

Your guess is as good as ours...


Have you been having blue screens for some time? 

Did the windows installation go without any issues? 


Run a RAM diagnostic and see what comes out.
