Hi guys,

My computer shuts down randomly during usage, it sometimes restarts for no reason, freezes or fails to open windows. A few times though, I got this blue screen. Does this mean my processor is damaged?

This is my processor:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz

Not the processor. If it was it wouldn't even boot to that point.

I am not trolling lol. So what would cause this blue screen then? Is it damaged or does the hardware need to be upgraded or something?

DL and run Memtest for 24 hours. If that's fine, run Prime95 for 24 hours. They should find any hardware issues.
