Just about two weeks ago I purchased a Sager 9860 on ebay for what I thought was a great price ($900). Here are the specs; 3.4ghz extreme edition p4, 2gigs of ram, geforce 6800 w/256mb memory, xp professional, and 2 100gig hardrives. I got the laptop about a week ago and it has been running great playing all the games I love. Just last night however, I was in the middle of playing battlefield 2 and the program shuts down and it goes to the blue screen of death and says "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" and the whole rest of that long error message. It also did some odd little process where it seemed to delete 67 files if I read correctly. Anyway, when I went to start it up again I got a black screen and it wouldn't start. So I shut it down and started it a couple more times and thats when I got to the screen that allowed me to start in safe mode, normally, or at its last known good settings. I chose last known good setting and it fired up xp professional and I clicked on my account only to have it load my personal setting for like 2 seconds and then shut down. The problems starting up seem to be different each time because now it usually will just go to a black screen when I start it up and the hardrive isnt spinning at all, just the fans are working. I dont know if this is a problem with the main hardrive and a power supply? If someone could help me out that would be great.
