    Hi. I play Fortnite on my gaming laptop but recently I was getting blue screens of death every single time I booted. I emailed Epic Games and they told me to have a technician look at my computer. The only thing I could do to fix the BSOD problem was to reset my pc. I did it and it was working fine for a few weeks. Now, I'm getting the BSODs again! I have looked at tutorials to fix it and none of them have worked. I've tried multiple times and nothing is working. I don't want to reset my laptop again every few weeks because that's just stupid.

    The BSOD stop code is KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE

    Maybe your hard drive has bad sectors, that explains why a reset which writes a fresh copy over top and refreshes the magnetic bits makes it work again for a short period.

    The other possibility is that you installed the same infected software again, which could lead to a security problem.

    The game is installed on my harddrive, which I don't reset because it has important files on it.

    My windows SSD doesn't have Fortnite on it, so that can't be the reason.
