I have a few games installed on my laptop, this problem only happens with 2 of the 3 games currently installed. Some times it suddenly shuts down and re-start itself. When the machine has re-loaded itself it comes up with
" There was a problem starting msieoq32.dll. The specified module could not be found."
I have tried many different things that I got suggested on another forum but noting seems to work.
Anything I could try?
Welcome to Dell Community.
Have you tried reinstalling those games? Also verify that the exact file is msieoq32.dll and not msi32.dll .

yes i have reinstalled the games. This only has started recently. I uninstalled one game about 2 months ago and reinstalled it about one week ago and this started to happpen. And yes it is msieoq32.dll. i'll try get a picture of it when it happens again.
Are these legitimate games that you purchased or something that you downloaded for free online?
If it happens only with that software, I'd say it's a corrupt file related to the game(s) or malware looking for a component that is missing due to being removed by your security. I'm inclined to think the latter because I can find no information on that particular file name.
