While i'm playing WoW, my laptop randomly will shut off and make a wierd noise then a blue screen will pop, (¤t=1020101737.jpg) thats the blue screen that pops up. This screen pops up either randomly, or when i open my spell book, or talent tree or my backpack, or even try and loot. A minor problem that might have to do with it or help describe the problem is that the pictures of the icons are changed and are wierd. So lets say my spell fireball i put it on my action bar and the picture is instead a glass of milk, or something random, and it is always changing. The only way that i got it to work is if i minimize the page then re open and what ever icons are displayed on my screen atm are then set to the normal picture. I got a temperature app and the heat has never gone passed 65 C. My laptop specs are :
Manufacturer: Sony corporation
Model: Vgn-fj270
CPU/Ram: 1.862 GHz / 1014 MB
Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Ch
Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio

please and thank you

Intel doesn't make v-cards, u have igp or onboard video. Google the error eg. STOP: 0x0000000A. Also try to reinstall video driver(un-install then restart the system and install driver).

Yeah you have an onboard graphics card, one that can barely runs WoW at all, I suggest you updata your graphics drivers try with this page.

It will automatically detect ur current drivers version, update them if there is an update available.

Also I recommend you check how "hot" is ur computer, when running intensive 3D software like games computers tend to get pretty hot, tempeture is an issue try to lift it so it gets more air below it to breath. Some computers shutdown themselves when the processor is too hot to avoid damage it maybe.

Hope it helps
