Details on my Computer's Issue
As of a week ago, my home desktop has been getting serious hardware errors (bluescreen of death, specifically), and performance has degraded to nearly the point of programs flat-out freezing at some points.
Unfortunately, this is my only computer I can mod with, so I have to repair it in order to continue making the mods I already started.
I have only a very limited amount of experience in repairing computers, so I might need some one-on-one assistance in actually fixing it.
All I can really tell is that after turning my computer on after about a week away, it showed the infamous Bluescreen of Death and restarted. After the restart, I installed the newest Malwarebytes on the off chance that my AV (Avast) missed something but that returned negative, save some PUPS (potentionally unwanted programs) from an AV I installed a while back which has never caused me these kinds of problems. After the scan, my computer worked fine for a few hours until it restarted via another Bluescreen error with the new issue that my internet adapter suddenly stopped functioning. This happened an additional time following.

If need be, I have the Windows 7 disk I bought nearby to reinstall/wipe the Hard Drive, but I hope it doesn't come to that.
Additionally, I'm in the market to find a decent priced laptop with similar specs, so if you have any potential ideas, I'd be interested in hearing about them.
