Computer Crashes

Q: Computer Crashes

Well, my problem is I start up my computer, there are no windows errors, about 15-30 seconds after my computer starts it turns off. I think it has something to do with the power supply, but I want to make sure before I waste 50 dollars.

Preferred Solution: Computer Crashes

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:

A:[SOLVED] Can't open My Computer/Documents/Control Panel -computer crashes

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

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

A:Disappearing Icons, Computer Crashes, BSOD, computer unusable

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)

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.

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.
 

A:Got a bad program, shutting down computer before computer crashes... help

When you first turn it on, can you see the Dell logo?  If so, does it show the Windows logo after that?
Do you recall details of what the blue screen said?
 
If you can see the Dell logo, then try these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
You can press F12 to get to the boot menu in order to boot from the CD/DVD drive.

A:computer crashes

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?

So last week I was an idiot and I accidentally knocked Coke into my computer. This got over the graphics card mainly which I replaced.

However we have still been having issues where my computer crashes any time after start up with only 1 or 2 startups successful out of maybe 50. Me and my dad are unsure if this is a motherboard issue because it keeps booting to bios for example.

Here are my specs:

-ASUS P8B75-M LX
-I5 Processor 3.2Ghz
-Corsair CX500
-500GB Seagate HDD
-256GB Samsung EVO SSD
-8GB RAM modules

We installed the SSD and the GTX at the same time, doing the SSD first and then the graphics card.

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.

HELP! My computer randomly crashes. Sometimes, it will go nearly a week without crashing, other times it will crash 5 times in one day. Using Blue Screen View, I see that it's a hal.dll problem. I am running Windows 7 Professional x64, clean install over previous WinXP SP3. Win7 downloaded from Microsoft website. The motherboard, processor and memory were just upgraded in the past month, along with the Win7 install. The video card and remaining hardware are about four years old. I have attached the Zip file of the BSOD and Perfmon reports, and my complete system setup should be accessible from my registration and reports. The Perfmon report said I was not running an antivirus program, but I am running AVG Anti-Virus Fee Edition 2011. If you need any other info, please let me know. Thank you!!!

These were all caused by hardware. read here to see what that means and what to try

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .. A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. You can read more on this error and what to try here... Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Hello TechForum! ^^

Well, I just registered and that's because I have a problem with my computer and I believe you guys can help me out with this.

This has been happening for quite sometime now. Since I believe I can fix any problem on my own but it seems to me that I've proven myself wrong. Not too long ago my PC has been shutting off by itself. I have a HP Pavilion PC. The big button used to start up my PC blinks forever if I don't unplug the cable out of my panel. Note that the crash does not happen alot.. it just crashes once a day, mostly from being on alot. So I didn't really pay attention to this. Though I knew something may be wrong.

I'm an intense gamer. I love games alot, either it would be console or the computer itself. So you can see that problems might be abit common since I play alot of intense MMORPG games that take up CPU greatly. Before while my PC crashed only once, I was playing a game that took up ALOT of ram. Though I seemed fine. Then I tried out another game, what I noticed was it was crashing as soon as I began playing the game. Which scared me alittle, seeing my PC surrendering like that to a game. So what I though was maybe my PC is just clogged up with dust. I've had this PC for 2 years so far and I haven't cleaned anything or changed anything. The processor, heat sink, cpu, fans, everything is the same when I bought this PC.

So what I did was uncrew the case of my panel, (of course the PC was off and ... Read more

A:Computer crashes by itself

Almost certainly a hardware issue. And I'm smiling to myself as I write this because this fits into the cliche'd response of it probably being your PSU or the RAM. Based on your electrical comments I would guess it is the power supply.

To eliminate the RAM, or at least attempt to, you can download and burn a memtest iso, then boot from that and run it several passes. If it can't make it a pass without freezing (but no memtest errors) I would say there is a 95% chance it is your PSU.

When I attempt to access Juno e-mail my computer crashes.

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down

by the following file: mrtrate.sys." I have contacted tech support

Does anyone else have this problem?

After searching online it looks like mrtrate.sys could be one of two things, either a Connexant modem driver or part of Quickbooks Pro.

If you don't have Quickbooks Pro I would look for an updated driver for your modem. If you do have Quickbooks Pro, try reinstalling it.

A:Computer Crashes

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Only 37 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 46 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

C: drive only has about 5% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the mot... Read more

Sounds like heat may be the cause. Check your processor heatsink mount and maybe clean and reapply thermal paste. Depending on what type of heatsink is being used there are guides available online for doing this. CPU would be the last thing i would suspect. Motherboard more likely.

i have a laptop and a few months ago, it was always crashing due to driver issues. i found the drivers and thought it was fixed, but i was wrong. I have a picture of my desktop and if somone could look at it and possibly tell me what is wrong and how to fix it, i would greatly appreciate it.

A:computer crashes

Well we are looking at either driver issues (which you mentioned) file association errors (which is what the desktop message is saying) or both.

I get no sense that the two could be related, but possible. Why do you describe hardware issues, then post an error message for a file association problem, as I do not think a file association problem will cause any real problems other than you can't open the file by double-clicking it.

To fix that, right click on the file's icon and select option "Open With". On the box that follows, click the Application you want to open the particular file with (such as Windows Media Player, or whatever) and make sure to click the box "Always open this type of file with this program" (or words to that effect). Hit "Apply" and close the box. Now double click the file's icon and if it works the App you selected should launch the file.

This does not sound like the serious issue you are concerned with. What other symptoms are you having ?

Hi. My computer has been crashing often (every 30 mins - 2 hrs, usually) whenever I use it, but I can do everything else normally and it runs fine. It's been like this for a long time, I think I've had this computer for 3 or so years, and It's probably been crashing for 1 and a half. I don't know a whole lot about computers, but I've tried what I could.

I even got a new video card and RAM a while back and put them in, but it continued to crash.

I tried using only one stick of RAM in each slot, like the "Crashing Consistently" thread, and switching slots (I have 2 slots each with 1 gig of RAM) but it still crashes no matter what.

I unchecked "Restart Automatically" in my settings.

I ran "sfc /purgecache", "sfc /scannow" with my Windows CD, but that did not help.



Any suggestions would be great--Me and my friends are completely stumped. If you need any info just ask, (though you may need to tell me how to get it--I still don't know a lot).

Hi!

I've encountered some difficult problems to deal with when it comes to my computer. It was built for exactly three years ago and I've never had any problems until now.

The 6th October while I was playing Battlefield 3 Beta the computer crashed and I had to restart it. During the boot a warning sign told me that the CPU was overheated and that's why the computer crashed. So after replacing the original Intel CPU-fan I assumed the problem would've been solved. However, after playing BF3B for 10 minutes the computer crashes again. I've checked all the temps and it shows just fine for the CPU and graphic card. I've played games like Crysis 2 with high settings without any problems, and the same problem occurs when I play low requirement games like Battlefield Play4Free.

After looking on google, the only cause for this problem I can find is overheated CPU, which mine isn't.
The graphic card's driver is updated, I'm not sure about the motherboard, as I'm not sure what I should look for. My computer specs:

The errorcode I get from Microsoft is: BCCode: 124 BCP1: 0000000000000000 BCP2: FFFFFA8008361548 BCP3: 0000000000000000 BCP4: 00000000000.

About 3 wks ago I started getting the BSOD every time I start my computer. It usually happens about 20-25 minutes after startup and it doesn?t matter what I?m doing at the time.

Before the crash the hard drive light illuminates and the computer freezes and then the crash. The light stays on and the only way to get it going again is after the memory dump is done I turn the power off. I then turn it back on and everything is normal for the rest of the day.

However quite often when I run these scans whether it be my McAfee virus scan or spyware scan (e.g. AVG, Ad-Aware, Spybot etc.) my computer crashes mid-scan without warning and restarts itself. It even goes beyond scans with it crashing. While running 'disk cleanup' the computer crashes and restarts itself.

Can anyone give me any assistance?

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.

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.
