Hey community,

So long story short, I've been having BSOD's on my HP Pavilion DV6 (I'll get the model number if needed, I forgot it by now).

The BSOD's come up with the unexpected error window reading BCcode 24. I forgot to get any other information, but I am pretty sure I can replicate the issue somehow.

Anyone got any insight?

BSOD's are most likely caused by a bad driver or RAM. I would start by checking your RAM.

Open up an elevated command prompt by going:
Start > Click on search programs and files input box > Type in CMD > Right click on CMD in the results on top of the Start Menu > Click on Run as Administrator.

In the CMD window that comes up, type in SFC /scannow.
Let it run.
See if that cures it.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I will try these things when I use the laptop next. I generally use my tower when I am in my room, but I will probably use the laptop tomorrow.

The laptop also periodically freezes generally on a high workload, but I can never seem to replicate it when I want to. The only way to fix it is to do a hard shutdown and reboot.

Any errors found in SFC are probably caused by faulty memory, run memtest86 for at least three passes to test your memory.
