Computer crashes

Q: Computer crashes

My computer started to crash since I changed ram type ddr3 to ddr2 and bios reset. I had to do that since my motherbaord ddr3 ram slots are not working anymore. Since then my computer freezes. Sometimes there are BSOD suddenly coming up or when I shutdown computer. And they say different reason why they happned. Sometimes when I open a software like Firefox, the crash report windows opens stating firefox crashed. And when I start playing a game the same thing happens. I would have tried to solve the problems by myself but there are so my different erros not sure where to start.
Please help, thanks.

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.)

Per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3_SDRAM :
 
"DDR3 DIMMs have 240 pins and are electrically incompatible with DDR2. The two are prevented from being accidentally interchanged by different key notch positions on the DIMMs. Not only are DDR2 and DDR3 keyed differently, DDR2 has rounded notches on the side and the DDR3 modules have square notches on the side. DDR3 SO-DIMMs have 204 pins."
 
What motherboard do you have installed...or what OEM system is this?

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?

once done reboot and try scaning again but in normal mode to see if the problem has been fixed

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:

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
identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the

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

The memory test seems to indicate that the RAM is ok when I turn the computer on but Windows won't boot. I get the 'computer did not shutdown properly' message and select safe mode and then the pc just restarts.

Can the initial memory test still succeed if the RAM is faulty because I don't want to return non-defective RAM? If I put the old RAM back in it works fine.

Presuming the RAM is ok, then could incorrect memory timings cause this? My new RAM is CL3 so if it is set to CL2 settings could this be the cause? The only snag is that I can't get into CMOS to try changing the settings because it is password protected and I don't know the password.

Hi,

I'm having trouble with my new computer. Recently, its always crashing on me, especially on start-ups and shutdowns. The computer just resets (makes a noise that usually happens only when i turn on the comp).
Afterward, I get a "System has recovered from a serious error" message (attached).

My comp is a Windows XP Pro, AMD Athlon 3800+ X2 processor, ASUS M2A-VM motherboard.

I got my new computer last July, and up until a couple of weeks ago, everything was still fine.

Any advice appreciated, thxs!

I have no idea how to fix this... I've tried other programs and they all do the same thing as soon as they get around to scanning the registry. This has been happening for a while.

Here is what i found from my event viewer:

The description for Event ID ( 65535 ) in Source ( STacSV ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Connection to the COM Skpi Storage Interface failed.

Here is what i tried to do :

1. Checked both of my hard drives for errors and i defraged them both
2. I have Spyware doctor and run multiple scans.
3. Used various programs to see if have anything on my computer like a trojan, like Registry Mechanic, Registry cleaner, Spybot and super cleaner.

Unfortunately i dont know what else to do and the computer keeps crashing at least 3 times a day.

Can you help please

Thank you.

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.

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.

When i play games my computer screen became all fuzzy and crashes. Sometimes im not able to start up the computer at all. Now even when im not doing anything my computer screen just becomes fuzzy and crasshes.

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 ?

I just got a new gaming pc over a month ago and it seems to have a bunch of problems. Ever since the day I got it, I randomly receive the blue screen memory management error. I could be playing games or just on the web and this might happen causing my pc to restart.
All my game also crash to desktop way too much. Programs like steam also crash. I have tried reinstalling steam and my games but It does not work. The crashing is very random. It could happen every 5 min to a couple hours.
The past problems have been happening since day one and I encountered some new problems recently. Me and my dad opened the case while my pc was on to check that all the fans were spinning. I let him put the case cover back on and he kind of pushed it causing the front of my pc to get quickly pushed. I'm wondering if this damaged my hdd as now I notice that my hdd is kind of loud. It doesn't make clicking sounds but I can hear that its on. I used to just hear my loud fans, but now I can hear my hdd in the background. A problem that came up right after this is that sometimes when I am playing a game, the game freezes and makes a buzzing noise from speakrs causing me to have to restart my pc as I can't open task manager.
I have tried updating my video card drivers, reinstalling games, updating bios, using windows memory diafgnostic, updating windows, reconnecting hdd, but nothing works. I also know that I don't have a heat issue as my temps are good with my gpu being at around 60c and cpu between 4... Read more

Hey,
Recently I felt that my 1gb of ram was a bit sluggish and decided to go purchase 4gb of ram and install it. Now, my computer has troubles starting and goes into Start up Repair where it has trouble finding a problem. Then when i finally get to login as my user everything works fine for a while (2hrs maybe) or until i try to play any of the games i have (guildwars, CS:source and Sims 2) where the screen proceeds to freeze and look a but distorted.

Now i dont know what the problem is and i have tried looking into if it is the ram i recently installed but i havent been able to come to any possible source of the problem.

Thanks Corey :D

Hi -

System goes into startup repair EVERY TIME? What does it repair?

Check Event Viewer - Custom views/admin log to begin with

WERCON

You are x86? You know that x86 system will only use ~3.3GB of the 4GB?

My computer freezes over and over again. I ran adwareSE, Spybot, and my anti-virus program, all to no avail. Spybot found WildTangent, but was unable to delete it.

For no apparent reason my computer reboots after 5~10 minutes of running. The system will remain stable for days, weeks even. This problem possibly occurs whenever the system reboots. It might be, but not confirmed, that the cpu fan does not come on when it should. The cpu heating up causes me to reboot.. or thats my theory.

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.

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?

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.
