First of all when does the error message pop up, this message has to pop up while your doing something on your computer can you be more specific on when the message comes up.

It can come up while your on the internet, while playing a game or even doing some work with any program So can you please be more specific

But do the following when an error message pops up:

1) Write down the error message

2) Write down what you were doing at the time the error message occurred

3) Try closing the software application you were using at the time

4) Try rebooting your computer If possible, close all open programs
