Hi, I've had an Asus GL551JW Gaming laptop since for the last six month and so far about twice a month it will crash with this error:

Has anyone figured out a fix for this forced restarting or should I contact customer support and get this repaired?

Run THIS (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html).
what drivers are shown in red ?
what is the "bug check string" and "bug check code" ?
( show us screenshot of these two tabs enlarged )

what do you run when it happens ? what is working during that time ?
what OS you have ?
which driver do you use ?

if you got weird BSOD twice a MONTH - it's not something that should really bother, in compression to BSOD or crashes that happens every few hours.

Are you sure it is not due to battery running dead while in sleep mode?

I have other events that may provide more information

Yeah, it's almost always plugged in

Have you added/changed memory? Is CPU being tasked when it happens?

I have not made any changes to what is stock with the Asus GL551-DS74

I had 2 tabs open in google chrome, I had a word document being edited and a calculator app open at this time so it's doubtful it was my CPU being tasked, I can't find an error saying my CPU was limited by firmware or anything like that. Is there anywhere I can check for that?

Sounds like faulty RAM to me. You could try re-seating it. You can launch task manager to monitor CPU. Unless you are overheating this should not be the culprit. I would run Memtest or try removing your memory modules selectively (if you have more than one).

I'll run memtest and post the results

memtest came back, no errors to report after four passes

I would turn it in before warranty expires. It is most likely hardware related.

Anyone find a fix? I'm a full time student so I can't send this laptop in until June.

Well for the GL551JW is available a new BIOS: BIOS 209 - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/G551JW/G551JWAS209.zip

You could try to upload your Bios and then see if the error continues, since the Windows really doesn't provide enough info to diagnose your cause of Kernel Errors.
