Frequent completely unexpected crashes

Q: Frequent completely unexpected crashes


I am having trouble with my PC:
2x Xeon 2.8 GHz
2x 1 GB RAM (Kingston)
1 Nvidia Quadro FX 3000
1 Raid on the fast-track controller 2x 300 GB
1 Maxtor on the IDE Master
1 Samsung on the IDE secondary

The machine has been working fine for 2 years now. No unexpected crashes (except some application produced ones), nothing.

About 1 week ago, it started to shutdown with no warning. Just power gone. Then, after a few seconds (sometimes up to 10 sec), the machine will restart.

This also happens with no app running.

I verified Viruses - nothing
I checked malware - nothing

I tried to boot in safe-mode and it seemed that the machine ran fine (tested it on 18 hours) - no crash. This was while running the virus-scan.

I then started it up normally and tried some tests with SiSoft Sandra. Again, it crashed. But it did so at different test. Sometimes, the test went through sometimes they did not.
Same tests, no parameters changed.

Then, I rebooted and got a message saying:

*****Warning: System BOOT Fail *****
Your system maybe OverClock fail or POST interrupted.

Now, my system is not overclocked - I reset the bios to defaults before I started all my testing (BTW - it never was overclocked anyways...)

How can I narrow in on the problem?
Do any of you suffer the same experience?

Thank you,

Preferred Solution: Frequent completely unexpected 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.)

Dear Seven Forums,
I'm looking for help regarding my pc that I built 3 months ago.

I am having random crashes of all types:

- 99% of the games crash to desktop after 10-15 minutes (Overwatch,Eu4,Hoi4, CIV V is OK,Witcher 3)
- can't use chrome / firefox for more than 1-2 minutes because of either 'Oops.. something went wrong' or the applications close without error.
- Randomly appearing crashes of antimalware-service and explorer.exe

and of course many blue screens while 'browsing' ,playing

What I've also noticed that I can go playing EU4,Warthunder 3-4 hours without issues and then suddenly keep BSODing the next 4-5 restarts.
I've filled out the PC specs in my profile.
What I've already tried:
-I've reinstalled Win7 3 times and reinstalled Win10 2 times. All of the fresh installs resulted in blue screens.
- I've also tried adjusting BIOS settings like setting tad higher RAM voltage, CPU voltage, running the PCIE in 8x or 4x Mode, and using XMP settings. The recent 3-4 blue screens happened with all the BIOS settings reverted using 'Restore default settings'.
- I've been using 2x4 2400Mhz Kingston DDR4 Rams the first 2 months, but replaced them with the Corsair ones in hopes of solving the BSODs (I've done a clean install + BIOS reset after replacing the RAM)
-edit: I've also tried disabling hardware acceleration in hopes of solving the chrome crashes

Looking for tips to finally be able to identify the faulty driver/hardware


A:Frequent BSOD (050,f7,fc,3b,1e), frequent service and chrome crashes

Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

Please ensure that all overclocking is removed for RAM, CPU & GPU while troubleshooting.

How are the graphics drivers currently installed? Windows Update or?

Hey there,

I've been getting frequent shutdowns, and it's driving me crazy! I'm sorry but I am not at all computer savvy...

I've hit F12 on start up and run diagnostics, all showing up fine. I've used various programs to check for viruses etc, done tune ups etc, but it still happens, randomly.

I've read in another post that the file from the minidump folder could help, but I can't seem to attach it as I don't have permission...?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:frequent unexpected shutdowns...

Can you give the specs of your computer.

Try running in Safe Mode, reboot your computer and continuously hit the F8 key, then select Safe Mode with Networking see if you still get the shutdowns.

Some things that cause shutdowns; Heat, Power Supply, RAM failing.

Heat - Blow out dust from inside the computer, make sure all fans are running.

Power Supply - Newer systems will have Voltage monitors in the BIOS, reboot and hit either the Delete, or F2 depending on your motherboard (you may see a screen during boot-up that states what key to press)

RAM - Download and burn to CD memtest86+, boot from CD and run Memtest on one stick of RAM at a time, if there are any errors you will need to replace RAM.

A:unexpected frequent shutdown

Can you please produce a JCGriff report as instructed here? Also, while we're in the process of analyzing it, you may want to go ahead and start up Driver Verifier. Any crashes that occur while it's active will produce more accurate crashdumps for analysis. If it crashes your PC at Windows startup, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 before the Windows Logo appears and disable it from there.

First of all, thanks for being here to offer advice. This problem has been driving me crazy.

About two months ago, my relatively new W7 x64 machine started rebooting without warning. Lately the problem has escalated slightly in that it's also occasionally throwing BSODs, though not all that frequently. Please see the .zip file for all the sordid details. The reboots are the really annoying thing: they seem to have become more frequent recently and can happen three or four times a day now. Sometimes they'll even happen if the login screen isn't touched for ten or fifteen minutes after boot-up.

I started investigating this problem by looking at the minidumps and trying to isolate and remove the more obvious possibilities: a rather elderly Wacom tablet (now uninstalled, though it never caused any trouble before November), a new Lexmark printer (which was added to the system in November, also now uninstalled). The uninstallations have made no difference to the reboots, which continue to happen at unpredictable intervals.

The system is a custom build from Scan in the UK, delivered to me at the end of July '10. The processor is an Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz (overclocked to I think 6 Ghz.) on a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H motherboard with 4G of CMX memory, Artic Freezer Pro and Akasa Amberfans. There are two Samsung HDs (500G system drive and 1 T storage drive) and two Optiarc DVDs: everything's in an Antec 300 case with a Corsair 650W PSU. Display adapter is an ATI Radeon HD ... Read more

Frequent unexpected shutdowns - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. Hobby project: Dell Latitude C640; 2GB RAM; NEW out-of-the-box 60GB hard drive. Same problem with the old 40GB hard drive. Checked file system with Windows Repair using an installation DVD and then again using a repair DVD. No errors found. Checked memory sticks independently with Win 7 memory checker -- all is okay. Would someone please analyze my dump file results and point me in the right direction? Thank you.

Greetings - I have searched for months but cannot fix this on my own and appreciate any help, please.

Shutdowns occurring in front of my eyes or when I'm not looking; cannot discern any particular software or drivers at fault. Loses all power and stays off, like a power plug pulled. Happens at my home and others as well, with home PSU or my travel PSU (both OEM) and carefully handled over the years, as well as on battery power only.

I had these issues before the new hard drive & Win7 OS installed Sept 2014. Shutdowns began shortly after again; now shutdowns much worse again. Do not believe it's temp related; I run a fan nonstop under the laptop which is in the air on a platform with cooling pad underneath, regularly shoot canned air in; temps read avg mid-40's C and stay displayed in systray, so I watch carefully. Happens with 2 different PSU's, carefully handled, also on just battery power. Did a power drain recently for static buildup; coincidentally or not, was better for a week. Have run chkdisk, memory tests, check for driver updates, and other system tools; no problems detected.

Event viewer seems to have the same patterns leading up to the shutdowns, but things I've tried from searches are ineffective. Here's the pattern, after manually restarting after a blackout shutdown.

A:Frequent Unexpected Shutdowns to No Power-Same Pattern in Event Viewer

Event viewer seems to have the same patterns leading up to the shutdowns, but things I've tried from searches are ineffective. Here's the pattern, after manually restarting after a blackout shutdown.

mid-40C temps are very good, but how are you monitoring temps? Some progs monitor CPU but not MB (graphics chip). With laptops, it's most often the graphics chip that causes overheat problems.

The two events leading to the shutdown may indicate hardware failure. Is there any connection between shutdowns and moving the unit? Has it ever been dropped?

You might run the machine overnight off a linux boot disk and see if the problem occurs. If so you will have a pretty good idea it's hardware driven.

My problems began a while back and I thought I had beaten them but maybe I didn't clean everything as well as I thought.

I frequently run low on hard disk memory on the partition where my OP is located and I have been moving things around between disks to free up space. The PC is often slow and I have presumed that this is a memory problem, however I'm often in the middle of running a program (especially Ad-Aware and Spybot) when the machine reboots spontaneously. I had to run GMER 8-9 times before I got a log.

A:Low memory, slow, frequent unexpected reboots and suspicions that I have a trojan

Hello Snowflake101,

I'm not seeing anything in your logs. If you still require assistance, run this online scan to search for any remnants. It can take some time, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course:

**Vista users - right click on the IE icon and run as administrator

Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/par...avwebscan.html

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.

2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:Close any open programs
Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

3. Click Run at the Security prompt. The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database. Please be patient as this can take several minutes.Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.

I have a relatively new computer that a techy friend built for me in the last six months or so, and it's been performing really well thus far, but this evening, I was just watching youtube when the display "crashed". I checked my monitor and all the connections to it, and they all turned out fine. There was a weird buzzing in my headphones as this happened.

I tried to push the manual restart button on the case, but that didn't appear to work, so I used the power button itself which turned it off. When I booted it back up and logged in, the computer was SUPER laggy, and I couldn't even open the task managed. I used ctrl+alt+del to try to gain access, but a message box popped up and told me something to the effect of "the task managed cannot be accessed with ctrl+alt+del".

One more restart and the computer seemed to come good, and after running a virus scan with Pareto Logic Internet Security (which turned up nothing) I opened the task manager and it all seemed fine. I don't usually pay too much attention to it, but the highest running process at the time was "SBAMSvc.exe *32". I tried to research it to see if that was a problem, but I couldn't find anything conclusive.

My problem is, this machine is made of (what I understand to be) pretty decent componentry, and it's only young. Considering all I had running was Skype in the background with a facebook and youtube tab open in Firefox, I'm confused as to what could possibly have happened. I'm no... Read more

For the past several months, I've had random crashes of my HP m9340f PC. I've never been able to correlate the crashes with any specific application or activity. This computer serves as my website server (Apache), HTPC using Windows Media Center for one TV, video server for saved DVD files using the MyMovies application (for this computer and another Vista box in the home theater), and gathering weather data using Virtual Weather Station. It is rare that I even actively "work" at this computer, as most of its software is set as servers. The crashes have never happened when I am working at the computer, programming, editing, etc.

I can see nothing listed in the normal windows event viewer logs, and trying to find a possible solution using the "Check for solutions" button (or something to that affect) does nothing. I haven't been able to find anything unusual in the event viewer that precedes the crashes. The computer just seems to reboot and I get the "...shutdown was unexpected" message box.

This computer runs Vista Home Premium, 64 bit.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to where I might look for possible answers. I have several minidumps in the directory, but have no idea how or what to look for when it comes to finding what is actually causing the crashes.

Thank you.

We have recurring unexpected crashes, and I have gotten predominant stop messages such as: 0x100000d1. I know this is commonly a driver / memory / page file issue. Yet in the meantime, any help you guys could give in finding a specific cause in the minidumps would be greatly greatly appreciated.

A:Unexpected Crashes Need Advice (Minidumps)

I note you have been waiting two days for help. Sorry about that. I don't read the minidumps but the Event Viewer in windows XP is a great tool:
To access The Event Viewer:
Start> Run> cmd> type in eventvwr
What you'll see:
Description of the Event Viewer:

Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

A week ago I got a blue screen of death which I've never gotten on this (~3-4 year old) machine. When it booted back up it loaded a BiOS I'd never seen before Gigabyte UEFI double BiOS. Over the next several days the computer was rebooted and the normal BiOS came up without an issue. 3 days ago the computer was started up, shut down and restarted. On the second restart It got hung up on the Windows screen with this error

I restarted and everything worked just fine. I ran antivirus and anti malware scans which came up with nothing. I also ran chkdsk which came up just fine. Every time I turn the computer on sometimes it's fine, sometimes I get the alternate BiOS and sometimes Windows loads with a messed up screen resolution (which is fixed upon restart).

I've tried to read on this an other forums but I don't know what's going on. I don't know whether a plug is loose or if the motherboards failing or what. I'm not sure what other checks I can do. The intermittent nature of a seemingly big problem is inexplicable. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

My Computer started experiencing BSOD every once in a while about 3 weeks ago, and it has progressively gotten worse, to the point where it is crashing/restarting 10+ times in a day. I have not made any hardware or software changes during this time. The most recent BSOD?s error gave: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGE AREA. I recorded a few of the file names given as causing the BSOD: ntoskrnl.sys, win32k.sys, dxgmms1.sys.
I have attached the BSOD Dump & System Files. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Windows 7 Professional 64Bit, which was updated from my previous XP OS

I am having several unexpected crashes on my Windows 7 Home Premium. The following items just stop working or crash:
HP Simple Pass 2011, Flash Player (using newest versions of Flash Player and Firefox), AMD-ATI Video Driver, Screen Saver, and Windows Explorer when I go to System>View amount of Ram and processor speed, and Firefox. All of these have started crashing and I have no idea why. I have used Housecall from Trend Micro, ZoneAlarm Security Suite, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, done numerous scans for viruses, infections, etc. and all of them say there are no problems. This didn't start happening until about a week ago when I did a manual update on Windows Update that was available and I also installed VLC Player because I wanted to be able to play flv files. I didn't get the result I wanted so I uninstalled VLC Player. Can someone here help? Thank you in advance, Fish4Bass.

The first and simplest option would be to use system restore to roll back your computer to a time before the problems started

System Restore

Another option would be to try a clean boot to remove start up items to see if the problem is caused by software/drivers clashing or causing problems

I have a computer that freezes up and will frequently crash. The cpu seems to peak at 100% most times if it is downloading or running a virus scan. The hard drive crashed, i installed a new one, and loaded a new operating system, 2000. It did not take the download and seem after it reached a particular point with the cpu peaking at 100% stopped. It did not freeze cause you can open other programs but it just would not download anything else even if u left it on overnight. Its the same thing running a scan with the virus program, it would scan a certain number of files, then stop the computer is not in a frozen state but it just would not scan another file. And then of course even if u r not downloading or scanning, there are times when u would try to open something and then it would just crash. The basic specs, Atlon 1600+ 256mb memory, 40 gig wd harddrive the motherboard is a dfi am33-el. There are two red lights on the motherboard, one of my tech friends thinks these should be green and not red and it might indicate a problem with the motherboard, but i don't know what to do. have already reset defaults in bios and changed a couple of setting and changed them back, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help, any suggestions would be welcomed.
I need to mention that i formatted this computer a few times and replaced the OS.

Another thing to think about, is the power supply adequate or going bad. The lights may be telling you the voltage is off.

You should also remove the driver SPTD part of Daemon Tool or part of other Virtualization software. This is a potential cause of BSOD
Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done

Right, I'm fed up now truely. I'd really appreciate some help.

I'm running Windows XP professional, service pack two (more specs below). Now I've had this problem for a long time, it never really appeared for any reason as far as I can remember. Basically my computer randomly crashes now and again, it's usually one of a few types of crash.

1). The screen freezes solid, plain and simple.
2). The entire screen flickers once very quickly then goes black, the hard drive sounds like it stops spinning at this point.
3). Sometimes it just restarts.

Now when I restart it after a freeze or B(black)SOD, it says the system recovered from a serious error and produces a dump file. I analysed the dump file and it returned this:

A:Frequent crashes

Hi Reakt !

Most often random crashes are caused by heat, PSU (= Power Supply Unit) or faulty ram. Hard drives are also a possibility.

It's more likely to be hardware than software, but keep checking the blue screens you receive and tell us if it's always the same file that's involved. Check your events also to see if they report any error : start => run, type eventvwr.msc /s. Check the different sections (applications, security, system, ...) and report if there are errors.

Enter the bios during startup (repeatedly press del), go to the hardware monitor screen and report the temperatures, fan speeds and voltages you see there.

What are your complete system specs (check the link in my sig), especially your current PSU brand and model. Try to borrow a friend's PSU (can't say exactly until I have all your specs, but a 450W+ should be ok with your GeForce 6600, just check that it's worth more than 70$ on newegg or ask us about it) and see if your computer still crashes.

Download and burn memtest86+ bootable iso on a CD (you'll need a software that's able to burn from .iso files, not just the one included in XP), enter the bios at startup to change the boot order to CD-rom first and boot on the memtest CD. Let it do 3 full passes to test your ram. Redo the same test with windiag to double check those results. Report if any of those programs finds errors.

What are your hard drives brands and models ? Run the manufacturer's diagnostic tool on them. Also run c... Read more

My system has been crashing frequently. I never get a BSOD--just a black screen and a reboot. Frequently happens while using Quicken Premier 2010, but also happens when Quicken isn't running. I can consistently reproduce it by simply clicking through video files I have stored in a local directory that I share over my LAN (clicking--not even double clicking).

I've run the Windows 7 memory test and it reported no memory issues. I saw a post somewhere that AVG anti-virus caused this, so I've removed that and have just installed Windows Security Essentials. I've updated my video driver, but all other drivers appear to be up to date. Yet despite all this, the problem is still readily reproducible.

Basic system info:
- Windows 7 Pro x64
- Original OS installed was Vista Bus 64, but I got 7 upgrade disks via mail-in as part of the system purchase and did a fresh install, not an upgrade
- An OEM or full retail version? Not sure--came from Microsoft so I believe it's full retail.
- The system is 1 year old
- I have not re-installed the OS since the original Windows 7 install

Thank you for any help you can provide!

My ASUSTeK x64-based personal desktop PC (System Model K30BF_M32BF) crashes anywhere from 2 to 6 or 7 times a day, and it's driving me crazy. It was new just about a year ago, and it came with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. Win 8.1 started crashing frequently, so I upgraded the OS to Windows 10 (10.0.10586 Build 10586 currently running) thinking that it would solve my problem. But now, after running Win 10 since December 2015, it's gotten worse.

The computer came with an AMD A10-6700 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, 3700 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s).

It is mainly used for personal document management (Office 2013), eMail (Thun, finance (Quicken), and internet access (mainly Mozilla Firefox - occasionally Internet Explorer).

Please help me resolve this issue before I put my foot through the monitor!

A:Win 10 - frequent crashes

There are no BSOD dump files present. Is your system crashing with a Blue Screen of Death?
If not and is powering off randomly it could be due to your System overheating or your Power Supply Unit failing.
In my sig there a link to a program called Speccy, it allows you to monitor temperatures.

The maximum temperature your CPU is capable of is 72c. If its going over that temperature for a decent amount of time your CPU will shutoff due to thermal overload. There is no warning your PC will just turn off.

Right now I have 3 large monitors. When the crash happens my display freezes on my primary monitor and the other monitors go black. On windows 8 it would go straight to BSOD and on 10 it shows the last thing i was looking at.\

The crash typically occurs when I am using chrome and watching youtube or online video but this doesn't seem universal.

I try to remember to not use chrome for such things, but sometimes I forget. I have a critical Gmail plugin for my job that only works in chrome so I have to use it for some things.

Plus it owuld be swell if my computer didn't crash multiple times per day.

A:Frequent Crashes

Hi ladieu,

Welcome to the 10forums

Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

Unfortunately after analyzing the dumps I found out that we would need the documentation of Intel to find out why the CPU is reporting hardware errors, however that would be too time consuming currently.

Because of that I'd like to start with some basic troubleshooting for the 0x124 crash.

The errors are 0x124 WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (Windows Hardware Error Architecture)
This means that there are problems with your hardware, but this error is also caused by overclocking, faulty drivers or BIOS problems.
Before starting with the troubleshooting process below, try followin first:

Make sure your BIOS is the most recent from HP,Make sure the BIOS is loaded for the optimal default settings,Make sure there is no dust inside the case,Make sure the airflow is proper,Make sure everything is seated properly.

STOP 0x124 Troubleshooting

A:Frequent Crashes. Please help.


Welcome to SevenForums.

I am NOT a blue screen/crash analyzer so you will need to wait for one of the excellent analyzers to review your .zip file.

However, a more standard way of providing info about your system and which is always available at each of your posts is via your system specs.

Here is how to fill out those system specs:

User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |

Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor. Please add the word laptop or desktop to the ?system manufacturer? block.

Provide full windows version info, such as provided by Speccy:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Use the ?Other Info? block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

hello all, please help..i got a y50-70 laptop. came with win8 originally but i since upgraded to 10 and it worked fine for a year and a half or so.it was my work pc that ive had for about 2 years and ended up buying it off the company after i left (im a 3d games artist)after reinstalling it a few weeks ago, and even in the weeks before, i got random crashes of my 3d application (3dsmax) as well as the occasionalblue screen. however, more recently, the crashes (only of the program) happened almost every 5 minutes, and i blamed it mostly on the hot weather andand overheating issue. it was easy enough to just relaunch the app.then the pc stopped responding altogether and i reset it manually (hold on/off button), only to find that it had fried the ssd (samsung 512gb)the ssd did not doesnt show up in bios or anywhere.i replaced it and reinstalled windows 10.now, it doesnt even run _anything_ without freeze crashing after 10 minutes.totally regardless of what i run. even browsers. it starts going unresponsive (like i cant minimise or move windows) then just freeze crasheswithout error messages or blue screeni did a mem check on both rams, they seem fine. when i ran extended ram checks with the windows tool that also crashed(so i assume its not a driver issue as it was outside of the OS, upon restart)i checked the core / gfx temps with hwmonitor, theyre usually around 60, sometimes as high as 90, but even when theyre in idle at 55-60 thepc crashes.i dont know what else it could be i...

I'm having random crashes, for a while often when I played boderlands 2, though this seems to have stopped. The frequency varies greatly, from over a dozen times in a day to a week of quiet activity. I've taken a look and some of it seems to stem from hard drive issues, but I'm not sure about the rest of it.

Hello, Exon. I'm not a BSOD or crash analyst, but would like to welcome you to Windows EightForums.

There are members that specialize in this. I'm sure one will be along shortly.

In the meantime, have you run any disc analysis programs?

I have a new PC, just 3 days since delivery that crashes all the time. Spec is below. The crashes can happen at any time, even at the log in screen. However, at times it has run for over an hour without crashing. At no time is a BSOD or any error message produced.
The supplier support has asked me to increase the CPU VCORE TO 1.25v which I have done. Still it crashes.
I have gradually installed all Windows updates that I can in between the failures. There are 10 updates that fail with a Code 80073712 error. I have tried to correct this by running DISM.exe but often a crash occurs when this is running.
Be really grateful for any guidance. I've been at this for nearly 3 days and am exhausted!

A:New PC Frequent Crashes

Don't think the updates would help. But, getting them to install is a separate problem. If your crash problem cannot be solved by the supplier, then I would return it. Maybe you'd want to try another of the same model, but, then, maybe not.

To take a stab, you could try turning fast startup/hybrid shutdown off. Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

The past 2 days, IE has been crashing on me very frequently... it sends an error report, then re-opens, and does it all again. I have NO clue what is going on w/my pc now, and was wondering if anyone would have any ideas here?

A couple of days ago my laptop (IBM Thinkpad) began to frequently crash and lock up on me. Ctrl Alt Del would not unfreeze anything so i was forced to just turn it off by holding in the power button.

After i would do that I would try to turn the computer back on but then it would stop before the normal startup began and give me the error message of
"Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in slot 01
Bus: 02, Device : 02, Function : 00"

My computer runs Windows XP home edition and has service pack 2 installed.
I have an Intel pentium M processor 1300MHz
598MHz and 512 MB of RAM.

So far as ive been trying to fix the problem ive done the following. I have uninstalled Ares and any other programs that might cause problems. I ran both my antivirus and spyware software (McAffee and Spybot search and destroy). That did'nt fix the problem so I reset the system to an eariler date and ran the antivirus program again.

The problems have still continued, so today i downloaded Windows Clean Up pro and ran that as well as Windows registry reparer. And things are still not working.

Currently my computer will most often lock up when im trying to download something. I was able to download those 2 windows programs without a problem but ive tried to download a patch for a game i have from filefront and its locked up each time. The problems usually begin when i try to download something and once i restart the computer it will usually lock up very quickly afterw... Read more
