Ok...First I think that you need to take a step back and just relax. You said that you have only had the computer for like 3 months. Do you have any type of warranty, limited or full? Because I would send the laptop back to the manufacturer, and have them look at it. That is if you have another computer, that you can use in the interim.

*Just a side note, you might want to go through and reread your posts before you add them because there are a lot of little spelling errors in important spots.*

Start with new video drivers. I don't know what video card you have, but some driver versions are prone to BSODs. If that does not solve it, update the rest of your drivers and rum Memtest.

I apologize for sum errors in my sentences. And yes the computer is only 5 months old. I haven't installed any news updates for the video driver cause it's a laptop and i don't know how to install on one of them drivers. Secondly yes, i do have a warranty of it. And yeah i bought it in a local hardware store so i don't know if i can send this laptop to the manufacturer.. why? i don't know its cause i read about bad customer services in some company's so i don't know. I have a 8600GT card.

What laptop do you have? We can help you find drivers if you give us more information like model, and OS.

That would be really apreciated

I have an Asus G1 S

It's

Processor
Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2 GHz 4MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB ( 32Bit) Vista
:: Mainboard
Intel 965M
:: Memory
2048 MB, DDR2 PC5300 667Mhz SDRAM, max. 4096MB, 2x1024MB
:: Graphics adapter
NVIDIA Geforce 8600M GT - 256 MB

and yeah the thing is that i never tried to install updates of videodrives on a laptop cause it's a bit different and harder then on a desktop. And i'm to afraid to mess it up incase i would do something wrong.

It's under warranty, I'd return it to the vendor for repair.

What are the temperatures like when it's running?

Yeah, its a laptop so can't really be fixed by yourself as much. I'd send it back to the shop and ask for a replacement, as something doesn't seem right.

I'd expect laptops to crash less than desktops, because they've been built in mind of the components to match each other as best as possible
