Preferred Solution: Computer crashes (i really need help)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer started crashing when I would try to run Norton AV . Then it started crashing when viewing pictures and videos. Took to repair shop and they could only find some spyware. I told that that everything was backed up so to just refomat. They also tested my ram and said it was fine in the testing but suggested changing it if the problem continued. It started crashing agian soon after getting it home. I replaced my ram and it still crashes. However yesterday I did get a successful virus scan.. everything looked fine with that. It is and Asus bourd, AMD 2200, Win XP with all the current windows updates. Any help would be appreciated.

PS
I had this problem a year ago and it seemed that replaceing a ram stick fixed it. When researching that someone suggested it could be the cache on the mother board. Could that be possible?

I don't know whether I have a malware problem, or a hard-drive-in-death-throes problem, or what. But I figured it was best to start here, so if it's not a virus I can go over to the XP forum with that ruled out.

Over the past few months my desktop has been steadily driving me nuts. First it began giving me BSODs at random intervals, anything from a day to a month apart. (Currently, about once every three weeks.) The most common error is 0x0000008E, but I've also had 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x1000000A, 0x0000004E (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT), 0x0000007F, 0x0000000A (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), and 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Usually it crashes at startup, but it has taken as much as twenty minutes. I've tried defragging the hard drive, using a registry cleaner, and replacing Sygate firewall (see below) but nothing appears to have worked.

Then Sygate starting occasionally crashing while I was online. I replaced it with PC Tools free firewall, which hasn't had any problems. (Yet...)

Somewhere in the last several months (hard to say whether it was before or after Sygate and the BSODs, it seems to have been creeping up for a while) Firefox developed an increasing tendency to hang. It reached the point where it was basically non-functional for a good quarter hour after connecting. During that time doing anything - maximising or minimising windows, accessing the start menu - took forever. Then Firefox started crashing - constantly. I worked my way through the official trou...

Svchost.exe Extreme Memory Usage Crashes Computer When Computer Idle
I am currently experiencing a problem that started just a few days ago where the svchost.exe process keeps taking up memory on my computer even when the computer is idle and continues to grow to taking up to 99% of memory before it crashes/freezes the computer and it has to be restarted several times a day to clear the memory back down. However sometimes when I restart the computer within an hour or a couple of hours or sometimes less the memory will get exhausted again.

One special note is that since my Windows 7 OS was preinstalled on my HP computer, I do not have access to the original Windows DVD and the DVD drive on my computer is currently broken and is unable to be used.

I downloaded the TSG SysInfo tool and the FRST tool with the following results.

I was able to download the FRST tool and I have the following results, so hopefully this will help someone to be able to help me with this problem it seems to be getting worse as time goes on eating up memory.

Thanks for your help, time and efforts it is appreciated and here is the TSG SysInfo and the following 2 logs from FRST:

damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these
steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is

Hi Anamarija and welcome to TSF !

Does the problem also happen in safe mode ?

Unplug all your USB devices. Use a PS/2 mouse and keyboard for the time of the troubleshooting.

Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer. Tell us if it finds any errors on the hard drive. If you couldn't see the scan's results you'll find them in the event viewer under application in the latest winlogon entry (click on the title of the source column to sort them alphabetically).

Did the BSOD or the errors in the eventviewer mention any .exe, .dll or .sys file ?

We'll need the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump, problem is you may not be able to browse your drive to zip and attach them with your computer. Copy them to some floppy or usb drive using the command prompt : start => run => cmd. Type copy c:\windows\minidump\*.dmp x: x being the volume letter that corresponds to your usb or floppy drive. Then with another computer zip them and attach the .zip file to your next post using the manage attachments button.

Double click the errors in the event viewer, click on the third button on the right (this copies the information in the memory) and right-click => paste the complete error message here.

Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. See if there are any devices with a red cross, yellow exclamation point or whatever in front of their name. If you find anything related to your webcam then right-click =>... Read more

This afternoon, my computer began crashing whenever I try to open one of the more important files, like my computer or the control panel. Everything works correctly on safe mode, and I've tried driver verification, but there's upwards of 200 unregistered drivers, so I'm not entirely sure what to do. Are there any drivers I should look for to move away from the system32 folder? Or is there any other way to solve this?

Also, I haven't installed any new software recently.

I have been having a long running problem with my computer. It started out as a lack of internet access which turned out tI o be a bad virus. I fixed that problem by doing a complete reformat of my system. I thought that that would fix the problem and it did for a bit.

After a week or so I started having BSOD. I went to a computer shop and we went to work on the issue. The BSOD's were showing that there was an error with my sata connection. I replaced the cables. The problem kept happening, so I replaced the motherboard and hard drive with a complete reformat again. Then I continued to have the same issues which included crashes, disappearing icons, weird error messages (x86 errors) and once in a while a BSOD. The BSOD's all say there's still an error with the sata connection.

I then decided to replace the power supply and upgraded to an evga 1300 watt. I replaced my case as well to a bigger one. I even replaced the ram sticks That seemed to fix the problems for a while and the BSOD's became very rare, but after a lot of use the weird error messages became very common. I really can't use the computer any more. I'm typing this on my laptop.

The computer shop I go to say's this is probably a hardware issue. They can't seem to figure it out. I've had it in multiple times. This is a nightmare for a computer owner. I have replaced virtually all the parts and my computer is still utterly unusable. The only program I installed since the last reformat wa... Read more

Holy.....
uh...
Why don't you just buy a new one! WOW.. Sorry..
Well, you SHOULDN'T have played with drivers...That is what's up.
Tried re-formatting AFTER doing those changes?
That computer shop owner though...I don't know what to say.
1) try reformatting to a version that is supported by the bios..(Check if it supports x64)...(fully ready)
2) post every error you get and attempt to find solution to each one. (Getting tired)
3) Can you mention WHEN did certain errors happen? before...after changing Processor and Graphic Card? (Getting worried)
4) Try lots of thing on the web. (hope time)
5) Revert back to the old virtual stuff. (shameful return)
6) take off the good pieces and attempt to use it on another computer or sell it. (Hopeless)

So I have recently bought a Samsung 850 Evo 120 GB ssd drive. My HP computer now has a 1TB hitachi hard drive and a ssd drive. The computer loads from the SSD drive. To try and maintain space, I have tried to download MS Office on the HDD. But when I install office, while in the middle of installing, my computer always crashes. This has happened on all three of my attempts to install office so far. Is there any reason why I should not be able to install office on the HDD or do I have to install it on the SSD?

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Computer crashes while installing MS Office on a Computer with 2 drive

It's always best to have your programs loaded onto the Windows drive, which in your case is the Samsung SSD.

It would be best if you could supply a screen shot of Disc Management making sure it covers all discs & the information. This will show if you have any other problems.

This tutorial shows how to do a screen shot.

I was using my microsoft office word program, and it all of a sudden went funky, like short circuiting out, then a blue screen popped up saying that the program I was using was bad and causing my computer to crash, so my computer was shutting down before it crashed. Then it shut down and came back up asking if I wanted to go back to a restored or previous thing, something like that, (a restore point), and it said it would probably turn off and on several times through out and could take several minutes, then the computer turned off and back on and the screen would not turn on... I have a dell all in one computer, so I do not have a separate tower from my monitor. What happened? How can I fix this? Any one out there have any ideas? I was not even on the internet at the time.

Hello.
My computer crashes when I play pretty much any game.
The thing is, it didn't crash in the past and I have the SAME hardware as I did then.

It crashed when playing Mass Effect 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Modern Warfare 2.
However it DIDN'T crash when playing Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Modern Warfare 2 has always run practically seamlessly in the past, and it runs far better than Black Ops but still crashes.

The crashes occur when playing for between 5 minutes and 15 minutes. The sound starts to repeat and my monitor loses connection, then my computer restarts.

I've updated my drivers.

I've read of similar issues with other people that also have a 9400 GT, but they seem to have always had this problem, my problem is a recent one. I've had this card for over a year.

Thanks!

Any advice appreciated, thxs!

Computer Info: HP Laptop, Windows Vista. (let me know of anything else you may need?)What Happens: Starting the computer up and after logging on it seems to run normally for about a minute.(altough their are a few random popups and antivirus programs) And then it crashes and goes to a blue screen with white writing. However, I can't make any of the words out as it is really blurry (like the letters are being repeated across the word itself)What I Tried: Started in Safe mode (won't crash when i do this) and ran Windows defender it only found 1 virus and i removed it. That was the only cleaner he had on the computer so i tried rebooting in normal mode and the same problem arised. So i tried Copying my MBAM file onto a CD (not sure if i did it right) and put it on the computer in SafeMode but it won't let me install it, it says something along the lines of "MBAM has stopped working... A problem cause the program to stop workng correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."So if anyone hear could walk me through on how i could fix this it would a HUGE help. Thank You.

I cannot blame windows7 for it's crashes, because it will often crash during initialization and even before BIOS POST mensage appears... however i cannot find out what is the crash reason... i mean, a blue screen appears, for 0.3151 seconds and then the computer restarts, i cannot see to find the crash details anywhere, so i don't know what to do. I heavly suspect from either memory or video board (as it failed to start 13 times already (according to Action Center) ).

I mean, every day i have to start it about 5 times before it actualy gets to the Desktop...

How do i look at the blue screen error mensage on Windows 7?

and if the problem is Memory/Video Card what do you guys sugest me doing?

A:The Computer Itself crashes

Hi.

You may follow this link on how to post for crashes.

What you can do for now is to check that the jumpers on the hard drives (if IDE) are set correctly.

Also, check on your memory Vdimm and timings in the bios. Make sure they are set correctly for you specific RAM modules. Visit the maker's site of the modules to find out the information on them. Use the spd tab of CPU-Z if you need to figure out which modules they are.

Make sure the pc is not overclocked at all.

Hi, I was hoping for a little help here. I can run my computer for hours, I can leave it on all day if i want without any problems. But when i run certain games my computer hangs constantly. Counter-strike hangs a few times, not too often though. GuildWars and City of Heroes hangs constantly! I can't run CoH for more than 20mins usually without it hanging. Occasionally though I have no problems and it can run for hours. World of Warcraft hangs occasionaly although it isn't as severe as the other two. I can't access windows at all, the entire system locks up.

I've been trying to figure out the problem, at first I thought it was my computer overheating, so I installed an extra fan and adjusted the airflow as well as install a temperature sensor program. My CPU runs at 55-60C, while my MoBo runs at 30C. My 2 HDDs run at 35-40C and there are 2 other temperatures which I think may be my graphics card? They're 55-60C as well. In my Bios my computer is set to shut down at 85C. But if my computer was overheating wouldn't the entire computer shut down?

I also attempted to run drivercleaner on my video card drivers, and reinstall the newest drivers. Still having the same problem. I also cleaned up some files, defragged my drives. My memory should be fine, I'm running 2 512mb Corsairs. So I dunno, any suggestions?

A:Computer Crashes

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Those seem to be all signs of an overheating issue.
Whats the watt on your PSU you have installed?
Reseat your video card and your memory. Take some canned air and blow out the fans inside the case and also the video card fan if it has one.

I just got a new motherboard; ASRock G31M-S R2.0, a DDR2 2GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GT 220 graphics card which requires a minimum powersupply of 300w. Ever since I had all these components installed I have been having problems installing an OS especially win 7. It brings up an error in the middle of installation and then I'd start over. Eventually, I installed the win 7 but every other thing (software or application) I try to install brings up an error in the middle of the installation and most times after the error, I get a bluescreen, then the pc restarts. I've tried everything...I tried installing with and without the new graphics card, I've tried installing with another RAM, I've tried installing on another drive etc...still, I get the same error. I don't know what exactly is giving the problem...whether it's the graphics card, the RAM, the motherboard, the Hard-drive or the power pack. I can't install anything and then the occasional crashes (blue screen). Please any advice, it's driving me crazy.

Hey.

I've a very annoying issue with my computer crashing.
Mostly it's whenever I'm playing a game, so far I've been playing Call of Duty: MW2 and World of Warcraft.

It happens like this - I startup the game, and it runs fine for 2-3 mins. Then the screen just freezes, and nothing happens. I'm able to power it off and start it up again. Sometimes it even crashes while loading windows.

I had a similiar problem before I bought a new motherboard - because we could not figure out what was wrong. I upgraded the motherboard, and everything was running great for a month.

I've tried to test the RAM - but it seemed like everything were okay.
I haven't tried to test the graphic card, or the processor.

Specs:

OS: Windows 7 professional x64
MB: M2A74-AM SE
RAM: DDR2 - 2x 1Gb
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3870
CPU: AMD Phenom Quad-core 2.2 Ghz

I've updated the graphic-driver today, and I've flashed the BIOS a couple of days ago, to see if any changes appeared - nothing.

I hope you can assist.

Regards.
 

A:Computer crashes

Or the PSU or RAM?

Well I have few suggestions for you:

1. Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, and thoroughly review your system logs to see if you can find any clue to your issues.

2. To check RAM Download memtest 4 and run atleast 8 passes.

3. To check PSU you need a multimeter; check out all the connectors

4. Also check what are the temperatures of your CPU / GPU / motherboard etc.

First off, what are your machine specs?

When the machine "switches itself off", is this a full shutdown? Does it go through the shutdown process or is the shutdown instant? Do you have to unplug the computer, then plug it back in to start it up again? Does the motherboard LED's stay lit when it shuts down? Does the machine automatically reboot?
What OS are you running?

If I can believe what you've said, "its because of my wireless internet."

Does Windows give you a link to get more information? If not, I'd check for an updated driver for the wireless adapter.

Hello jojessd and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system on this computer. Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1.a site and install Service Pack 1a. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates but do not install SP2 at this time. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system. If you are not on a broadband connection the Service Pack can be obtained from Microsoft for a nominal shipping fee.Next, Importantyour copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. If it is run from Temporary folders the backups and HijackThis itself could be accidentally deleted if the Temporary folders are cleaned.

Hey

Firstly i have XP

Secondly - I have had my computer for ages and never had this problem.

My computer randomly crashes and just a black screen comes up whilst the power on my PC remians on. It crashes when i try and play games and sometimes just crashes on the start up screen.

I've just cleaned my fans and the same still happens.

Onec again i've had my comp for ages and this hasn't happened and have played the same game (FM09) for ages with no problem.

I also have another partition on my computer, which is rubbish, but I can go on that with no troubles although I can't do anything on it.

Any help would be much appreciated

I think I have a very similar problem. Do You have also trouble with getting restarted after it crashes?
What are Your computer specs? If You want someone to help You here, You need to give information on Your computer. As I am interested in knowing, if You may be dealing with the same problem as I, I would also appreciate in knowing what computer You're using.
I myself have an Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz, 2.84 GHz, 1 G RAM with a MSI 848P Neo-V motherboard and 650W Thermaltake W0163RED PSU (Active PFC, 14cm FAN, Modular, Temp. Con, 6xS-ATA, 2xPCI-e, 7-ATA).

I'm now quite sure, that my computer's problem was overheating. One very easy way to deal with it - get rid of dust. Open up Your computer and clean the dust. Very important is to clean the dust from the fan cooling the processor, which tends to collect on the heatsink. I had so much dust in there, that there was no way cool air from the fan could have reached the processor. After taking off the heatsink and brushing it clean the situation has improved, although I am thinking on buying a stronger cooling device. But You could also start in there...

It even goes beyond scans with it crashing. While running 'disk cleanup' the computer crashes and restarts itself.

Honestly, if you have that many problems with your computer, reformat it.

I have been through this before in different projects and I consider virus software as preventative measures because once a virus latches on it can be deadly.

I would reformat your computer and start with a clean slate, it is the most painless way to recover.

Hi I have been having this problem for about 6 months now. When i purchased this barebone styled pc, it was fine. Then out of no where it would crash when i tried to play games. It started fine, i was able to play games. Then it started to get worse and worse. I sent it back into the company i bought it from, and they said that it was an OS error and that the hardware was fine. I DO NOT BELIEVE THEM ONE BIT! I just installed Windows 7. The pc crashed and froze a few times while trying to Boot from CD to install windows 7. When the pc freezes, my USB logitech g5 mouse will turn off. So i normally used that as a way to tell if my pc crashed and if i wasnt able to wake it from hibernation.

Also, the pc will crash and repeat a sound over and over.. most of the time it picked some strange noise to repeat. I opened up Microsoft word, and it also crashed. Then after the reboot, i opened word again and it was fine.

Do not change the default options on scan resultsSome types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools.

Hi.

First, my apologies as I have gone and run Combofix without any advice - I only realized I wasn't supposed to after having done so - careless I know. Basically, the problem I am facing is that my computer crashes (everything freezes except mouse still moves) forcing me to turn off the computer using the off switch. This happens without fail each time I watch a youtube video after about 20 minutes or so. After running Combofix luckily nothing has gotten worse however the situation remains the same, therefore I have decided to post the log here and I have not run any other programs since.

I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at log and identify what the problem is or offer me some advice as I'm not that computer savvy.

Thank you.

Hello Sevenforums. 3 - 4 months back i decided to buy myself a new computer, i started by buying a new graphic card (Geforce GTX 560TI TOP), CPU (AMD Phenom II X6 1100T) and a new Power Supply (650W Cooler Master). But my motherboard was to old for the new CPU, so i bought a new motherboard aswell (M5A88-V EVO) and a computer tower (Cooler Master CM Storm Sniper Black).

My brother and my cousin helped me get everything working, when we were done my brother downloaded the bios and the drivers for the motherboard and graphic card.

I downloaded the game i bought too. (Battlefield 3) and suddently my computer just crashed with no warning. i tried to turn it on and open the game again, but the same thing happened. I was running the game once again. and checked if anything overheated.

But nothing did. My cpu wasnt even close to be hot either. A few days later i went to a Computer Store. They had a look at it. They tried to update the bios and the drivers again, they also tried to reinstall my windows(7). This been going on for 1 - 2 months, He told me to get a new harddrive, cause it was to old and broken. I went out and spend $250 on a new harddrive (seagate 2TB) that didnt solve the problem.. i've been texting him for a few days and he havent texted me back. So i thought i just had to post a thread here.

My computer crashes at different times. Sometimes it crashes after 1 hour playing a game. Other times you can play 5 - 12hours without a crash, I tried to calcuate my ... Read more
