Blue Screen of Death, but not at boot-up?

My black screen of death does not occur at boot-up, but at random times. Reformatted my hard drive, and after installing all my software, it happened half way through copying in a lot of documents and other kinds of files on Windows 7! When I tried to boot up after turning the computer off, it wouldn't even start. After letting Windows try to fix the startup problem, I finally cancelled it, rebooted again and got in. But this has been happening for a couple months. The BestBuy guys, after searching for software errors, suggested it might be the wiring in my house (which is old, and causes a lamp to flicker in another room). Could it be that? If not, is there any hope?

If your computer is suffering from a Black Screen of Death at times other than boot up, your computer could be overheating. Use compressed air to clear the dust from your computer's fans so it can breathe. If the issue persists, you will need to reinstall Windows 7. If that still doesn't work, you have a hardware problem and you will either need to replace that piece of hardware or your entire computer.

BLOD with no Bootup option or Cursor?

I can't get to the screen to even give me the option to boot in safe mode. I tried using Win 7 disc and reverting back to a previous version of Win 7, still no resolve. My conclusion is that I have a nasty Malware or those Win updates you mentioned but can't do anything about it. You never mentioned about how resolve this more severe issue. I am at the stage where I have installed Win 7 on a separate HD and then trying to figure out how to fix my other Win 7 HD that I need. I will be attaching it later by USB to see if I can resolve my issues. Tips would be appreciated.
