    Have you updated your motherboard BIOS to 209 or 211? (You also like to post everywhere...)

    yeah haha even on notebookforums thats how bad i wanna get this thing fixed..... and yes im on 211, this morning when i first turned on the computer i got the blueish-grey screen of death while windows was applying update at the start -___-

    update: imma just post what i had on the other forum

    "yeah im on bios 211, and have already tried 10.11, 10.8, 10.7 and stock, but still no luck =[ i dont have to be gaming and it can still shut off, but it occurs much more often when i do

    EX:
    -when i first turned on my computer windows was applying update and was stuck at 0 for quite some time, and then i got a blueishgrey screen death

    -i turned on the computer and double clicked mozilla right away without letting everything load and got a white screen

    oh and for some reason i think ive gsod faster on the stock drives which is really wierd"

    just for giggles, open up HWINFO32 and paste a copy of your vBIOS version, if you would.

    Did you purchase this at a retail store? If so exchange it for a differant one. If purchased from a online vender call them and see what there exchange protocal is. Last resort is RMA and the fun begins.

    Contact the place of purchase and start the RMA process, this sounds like a GPU hardware failure.
