I know absolutely NOTHING about the internal workings of a computer. If you need to explain something to me, explain it like I'm a ten year old please, or I won't be able to understand it. :(
Anyway, a while back my computer kept popping up with some message where it would want to restart pretty much every time I turned it on. It was getting really annoying, so I looked it up and figured out how I could put in some code to disable it doing that. I don't know if that's related to this issue or not, so I included it. Less frequently, this is what I'm getting when I turn on my computer sometimes:
System.Threading.ThreadStateException: Thread is running or terminated; it cannot restart.

It makes me think my thermal controller is crapping out, but this thing has been loud ever since I got it, so I'm not sure.

Try re-installing the thermal control software. Computer crashes are due to driver issues about 95% of the time.
Were these errors blue screen errors that you got before? What was the STOP code and error message?
The only part of your post I understood is in bold. That's what I meant when I said you have to explain it like I'm 10. Where would I go to re-install the thermal control software? To the dell alienware page?
I don't know what a "blue screen error" is so I can't answer that question, and as far as I know there was no error message, that popup is just on my screen right after I start my computer up sometimes.
