I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

Okay first of all I would like to say I have been having on going issues for months to almost a year... I have tried everything I can think of... Including wiping harddrives to DoD standards with dban, gparted etc.... I have tried monitering my connections with wireshark...  I have tried several differet anti- (virus and malware) programs including paid version of kaspersky, malwarebytes, bitdefender, eset.....
This problem also has involved some black hat hackers compromising my system and bank account, credit card etc all being hit and continueing to do so... I have switched ISPs , changed hardware, thrown away devices including cell phones and laptops... It seems that they were also backdoored into several of my devices and were using several different methods to continue to spread and infect other devices.. These devices include android, iphone, ipod, ipad, netbook, laptop, smart tv and even my dvd player (java).. I have tried to ask for help and seek help for this and no one can figure it out or think this cant be real.
I have now thrown out all laptops, and all phones at the same time and started from scratch but having issues on a brand new laptop... I am not sure this is the same issue as before... However, I would like and really appreciate if someone could help me out and view my logs and make sure.. because I have been through hell and back with all these issues.. Loss of finances, time, and sleep... SO, I truly appreciate any and a... Read more

Site looks great... But, when you put in OT at work and have a new born at home it's hard to visit your favorite forum.... I had a quicky for the group to help solve - a 3 parter.

1st part - create a user form to display xml data - what is the vba code to display an xml node in a user form text box.

2nd part - create a macro that when run captures the hilighted words in the current PPT slide then displays it in the VBA userform textbox.

3rd part - on the same userform create a button and code that when clicked will add the text from the "selected text" field then add it to the XML doc.

thanks in advance for the input,

This computer got a virus several months ago. It redirects the browser and doesn't allow me to do a lot of things, so I got frustrated back then and stuck it in the closet. I fired it up this morning, deleted a bunch of programs, and decided to give it another try. Here's the DDS Log:

A:down for months

I know, being patient is one of the rules, so I apologize in advance. Maybe the title I chose, "down for months" gives the impression that I'm not too interested in resolving this issue - I don't know. I am very interested in getting help with this. I realize this is free voluntary help, and I appreciate that. I noticed that I've had 28 or 29 views, but no one has replied. I'm honestly not trying to seem impatient. Just curious that's all. I have no idea what's wrong with this computer, or how to read that DDS log. My concern is that, since there have been 29 views, I'm assuming those who do know how to read that log have looked at it and decided not to get involved, for whatever reason. If someone who reads the log and doesn't want to help could just leave me a reply saying, "You're screwed - your computer is now an anchor" that would be very much appreciated also.

Thanks again and sorry if I seem impatient. I'm not . . . much

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

? CPU AMD Phenom II X4 980 Quad-Core Black Edition 3.70 GHz
? Video Card AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
? MotherBoard Asus M5A88-M EVO AM3+
? Power Supply - brand &... Read more

Hello everyone, I have looked around everywhere to try to sort my problems out but I've had no luck. Now I've decided to bite the bullet and ask for help. I had a computer built about 3 months ago. Everything was fine at first, then I started to get BSOD.

First the errors were due to 'a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor' but now they are going into a more serious 'uncorrectable hardware error'. I'm after potentially pinning down the dodgey component and sending it back, or fixing it - and I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to help. I'll try to provide as much info as I can:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 2057

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP2: FFFFFA800DD05028
BCP3: 00000000B2000000
BCP4: 0000000000100402
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

I've also included my latest .dmp file. Here are my system specs:

Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Asus P8H67-M EVO R3 H67 1155 Socket 8 Channel HD Audio mATX Motherboard

A:3 months of BSOD,

It is much easier to find patterns, etc, when there are more than one crash. We prefer you wait until you have at least two so that if one is corrupt the other probably wont be.
That being said the single log blames BCC 101

Hi tech guys, I am a non-tech chick with a big problem. I apolgize up front for the long message...anyway, I came across your site after one day turning on my PC and discovering it was hacked, nothing but porn site after porn site would come up. I searched for boredlife, which seemed to be a common thread in my newly reconfigured PC, and discovered the Christmas Eve post discussing spybot and adaware.
A bit of background...I have a cable connection to the web and never turn off my PC. For the longest time, I had it logged in as a controlled user, but it quit working and went in as admin to test a few things and then got hacked. (Ok, I admit, I never re-logged in as the controlled user). Then the porn started, so just to keep my daughter from the porn, I turned on the content filter. Annoying but successful....I was running zonealarm so I was a bit more confident than I should have been...but...it appears that whatever hacked me has the ability to reset zonealarm. Per your recommendations, I downloaded spybot and adaware and ran them, found lots of 'bad stuff' and for a day things looked better. But as soon as I rebooted, you guessed it, I'm back to some nasty porn sites as my home page. And now, I can't even go into Tools\Options in IE, because I get a message saying that the rights for this user are restricted (And I am in as administrator!). I tried logging in as the controlled user on my PC, but it is prompting me to change the password, saying it'... Read more

My computer has been hijacked by malware, spyware, and what not. Blank desktops, popups, multiple norton warnings are an everyday thing. I am tired of this.

I posted this in another forum but did not get help.

Can someone please help me here. I'd be so grateful.

thanks for your help!

A:4 different BSODs in two months

Problem Devices:
Unknown Device USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\5&BE1018E&0&1 43
First thing to do is determine which device the above is pointing to. Do you have your chipset drivers installed?

Security Software: ??? I recommend either of these two setups:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.

Which ASUS P5K motherboard do you have installed? Please fill in your system specs more accurately by using System Info - See Your System Specs as a guide. Fill the specs in on your profile, not in a post in this thread.

*sigh* OK, here goes:

So I designed and built this PC as a "budget build" for myself and my boyfriend back in October as gaming computers. However, we have identical issues, and after several attempts to fix them after so many months... I must humble myself and ask you guys for help, even if I did something stupid

Specs of my comp are below. As I'm typing this, I'm going through the Mobo guide to see if I really did just get parts that do not match up, but go ahead and point out any red flags.

So. The problem.

I have been blue screening constantly over the past 7 months or so. At least once every day. Whenever I have a blue screen, I have one of two messages pop up; Memory Management, or Page Fault Error. The first one is way more prominent, about 90-10.

I don't get it. I had an IT friend help me put the damn thing together so that I wouldn't do anything stupid, but this keeps happening. I'm almost thinking I have the RAM in the wrong slots in the mobo, but I am unsure if that would make me blue screen once a day (or more).

I have reformatted Win 7 *many* times thinking it was the problem, and I'm at the point where I don't think it's a software issue.

I'm open to all ideas, comments and solutions <3

Thank you!

(I have read the building a comp guide that's stickied at the top, but I must have overlooked something)

EDIT: Just realized that I need to post my specs manually.

My sons sister in-law took her laptop back to the store she bought it from for repair. They said the HDD was bad. The first replacement drive they installed didn't work. They tried another and it worked.....for a while. She has brought it to me out of frustration and it looks like the drive is bad!

It is an Acer laptop. The first time I looked at it the BIOS did not have an HDD listed. I tried Alt-F10 at boot and then the BIOS started to see the drive. When Windows tries to start it says the C: drive needs to be checked and it begins CHKDSK. It fails with "An unspecified error occurred (............ dee).

Could this be a motherboard failure rather than the HDD? 3 drives failing in the space of a few months seems suspicious to me.


A:3 drives in 3 months?!

Read other 16 answers

As the subject line implies, I've now had 2 HD crashes in 4 months. I'm running a Lenovo PC with SATA drives. Here's the thing...both times it was my secondary drive. The original drive is fine...so far.

The first time this happened, I had 3 drives hooked up. My C drive, a 2nd drive connected to the SATA connection on the MB, and then I had an external drive enclosure (USB). First, the drive in that enclosure stopped. The bios could find no sign of it, even when I connected it directly to the MB. It will spin for a few seconds and then stop.

The second time this happened (today), the drive was my 1T Seagate that is relatively new. I had earlier performed a Photoshop batch script that adjusted about 700 photos on that drive. All went well. And hour later, I got a BSOD. I allowed Windows to perform the startup thing (I forget exactly what it said) and it couldn't because it could not access the drive. Every time I would try to start the PC, it would go BSOD. Until I disconnected that 2nd drive. Then the PC started right up...no problems. Tried connecting the 2nd drive again and it can't see it. The drive spins up but can't be found.

So my question is, could the onboard controller, or something else (power supply?) be causing this or is it simply a coincidence that I've lost 2 drives in 4 months. I don't think I've lost 2 drives in the previous 10 years

Ideas? Thanks in advance....

Good afternoon

As the title says, I have been getting BSOD for nearly 2 months and I have tried almost everything to fix it as follows:

- I have reinstalled windows 7 and formatted my harddrive
- Sent the pc to an IT expert for 3 days where he performed all sorts of diagnostics and found nothing to be wrong with it
- Sent it to 2 other IT experts and specifically explained to them that they need to use the pc and make sure to turn it off and on about 3 times before the bsod happens again (which they did do) yet the bsod never happens at any one else's house/workplace (perhaps I have a problem with my actual power supply socket at my room??)
- I have made sure all drivers are up to date
- I have run the command prompt "chkdsk" and it found no problems
- I have turned on the pc in safe mode (making sure to do this on the 2nd or 3rd time using it so as to expect a bsod) and the bsod still happens
- I have turned on the pc with only the essentials (monitor, mouse and keyboard) and it still crashes
- The person I sent it to said that there are no problems with the harddrive, motherboard or RAM and CPU (although I am not sure what to believe anymore)
- I have run a registry cleaner using CCleaner and it still crashed

Please help me, I am not sure what else I can try without throwing the pc in the bin. I'v attached the zipped file with all the info from the sf diagnostic tool hopefully you can help me

A:warranty 12 months ????

Hi Is it registered with HP? When registration occurs the warranty would be adjusted to start from the born on date (I think you press ESC and then F1 to view this). So if you could try that and then ask again if there is still a difficulty.

I'm fighting a BSOD for about 50 days now, It's happening randomly in different situations for a minimum of two times daily.

I'm suspecting that my memory is the problem (2x2GB Chaintech APOGEE) as it appears in a weird way in Gigabyte easytune (some times appear as one memory module, other times with different frequency and properties for each module).

I ran Memtest86 with one module at a time and there were no errors.

I also ran the Windows 7 Memory test on both modules with no errors.

CPU: Intel i7-930

Mainboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

Display: Geforce GTS 250 1GB

HDD: Seagate 1TB SATA

Windows Version: Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Windows Type: Full Retail

Hardware Age: 2 Months

Windows Age: Around 50 Days (Repaired Two Days ago)

Running Kaspersky Internet Security 2011

I appreciate any help, This BSOD causes a serious pain & I lost work many times because of it.

Thanks in advance.

One error is caused by Kaspersky.. will check further.. and others will be here to take a look. I would recommend removing it and replacing with MSE or another antivirus

For around the past three months I have been getting the bsod. I have changed hds and reformatted twice to load the os but still get this bsod. Whats strange is that the puter may work fine for days and then crash or then start to crash over and over (reformat). I am getting tired of reinstalling the os so is ther anyone here who can read these minidumps and maybe tell me what to look at first, thanks.

A:BSOD 3 months

For some reason I cant read the minidump files. What errors are you
getting when it bluescreens? When you format are you using the
xp format utility?, if so bad idea, xp does a very poor job at that. If
you had os problems before the format, you will more than likely
have the same problems after the format.

Okay. I just did the whole reply with HJT logs and do combofix like a billion times over at GeeksToGo. All the malware/spyware was removed (apparently) from my system. Now, I've been scanning my system weekly with AVG8 and Spybot, but I seem to be missing this trojan thats affecting things on my system.

I CANNOT RUN HIJACKTHIS. It wont let me. I uninstalled, reinstalled, did it 3 times. Cant run it. Wtf? =( The trojan must be pretty serious for it to block a program from me using.

I honestly do not know what to post here because I cannot run Hijackthis. I'm running WinXP 32bit SP3, on a Q6600 quad core at 2.4ghz, 2ghz DDR2 ram, and I need help ridding this spyware from my system. I would attempt combofix and kaspersky myself, but I dont know the scripts for CF and I figure the infection would just outsmart me anyways.

I need some advice on what I can do first, as I have no logs or anything to post here so far. I can list the symptoms aswell.

Google searches are redirecting me and opening new tab windows, sometimes directing me to a completely different site then what I was searching for.
Certain sites say I have been infected by a trojan which is DOS attacking them when I try to connect to their servers.
MSN Hotmail isnt able to open whatsoever. I have to go through mail.live.ca to get to my inbox. Buttons on msn arent working??
I do my fairshare of downloading, and certain sites wont even let me connect anymore, even though I am able to connect on this network ... Read more

Unfortunately I have found what is known as the ZeroAccess rootkit on your system. It is an especially nasty infection that can take quite some time to clean as well as may have damaged your system files itself. As a warning, during the cleaning (if you choose to do so) you may lose internet access with this computer and in the end we may need to reinstall the operating system anyway depending on the extent of the infection.

If you would like to continue with the cleaning, please continue with the following instructions and I will be more than happy to help. ... Read more

Been meaning to write a note here for perhaps some tips and suggestions on what to do to get my 8.0 upgraded successfully to 8.1.

Months ago I was very excited to upgrade as I read of all the great improvements and now there is a note on line that 8.1 will get more upgrades in April.

So I got the banner across my desktop asking me if I wanted to upgrade so eventually I gave in and allowed the process to happen. I was very excited until the final reboot and well... I booted into a very grave mess.

I had NO background image, black screen. No task bar, no icons, only "a cursor in the dark" as I like to call it. Yea, I actually had a cursor I could move around and click but I couldn't "see" what I was clicking on. So upon trying what I could I called up Microsoft and after a while they asked permission to take over my machine and after 4 HOURS we both gave in and I had to do a full reinstall. At least the newer Windows saves all the older stuff in a Windows.old folder so not all was lost but enough to know I didn't want to go through that again.

Apparently the video drivers became corrupt along with Windows Explorer (that's what the MS tech was able to figure out). She was just as amazed as I was.

Anyway, I've laid off the upgrade again in hopes I could get here and ask what it was I should do before trying again? My video drivers are all up to date (as they were the day all that happened). The only thing I had running was the scrip... Read more

A:Tried and failed with 8.1 months ago

Have had mixed results with 8.1 here, had to revert to 8 on some laptops, am postponing any more upgrade until some time after 8.1.1 is out and has been discussed\reviewed.

But in all circumstances, IMO move nr1 in any upgrade process is to 1st do some good imaging (easeus here for xp\w7, macrium for w8).

So what will happen with my:

Windows 8 Release Preview
Evaluation Copy. Build 8400

Is there a way to turn it from a preview into Windows 8 Pro?
Can I install over it? (and keep everything the way it is: programs, settings, etc.)
Can I continue to use it as a preview or will my computer evaporate into a cloud of smoke if I do that?

so a few months ago my laptop randomly began running slow. Nothing was opening and i couldn't connect online. I restarted it and it stayed the same only my laptop wouldn't shut down. I figured it was some form of malware but nothing was picked up when i scanned it. I decided to reset my laptop to it's factory settings but the problem remained.

I was getting help from malwareremoval.com just to be sure there wasn't anything infected on my laptop, which there wasn't and i was referred to this site for help.
so here are my current symptoms

my laptop wont shut down or restart. It wont even go to he windows is shutting down screen, it stays on the desktop (works in safe mode though)

It would start up really slow until i stopped some programs from starting though startup inspector

and i cant update windows. when it automatically updates it gets stuck during the download. When i go to control panel update its get stuck and nothing happens. If i go to windows update the screen turns white and get stuck. I had a bit of success after i used dial-a-fix and managed to get into microsoft update but it jst stayed at the inspecting system part. I've even downloaded xp sp3 from a different site but still does not install.

so im not sure what else i could do so i hope anyone here can help

please and thanks

A:Issue I've had for a few months now

Hi .

System manufacturer and model?

How much RAM installed?

How much free space currently on Windows partition...how large is this partition?

As a start...I suggest running the chkdsk command.

Go to My Computer, right-click on C:, select Properties/Tools tab.

Click the Check Now button under Error Checking, select both options. click Start.

Answer Yes to dialog box which appears.

Reboot the system...the chkdsk command will execute. Upon completion, system will boot into XP.

Hello everyone

I have had issues with bsods with this machine, since I build this pc. I had it over a half year and found out i had currupted files. I got windows 8 from a shop and installed it. I still have problems with bsod and its driving me crazy now....Hope someone can help me with Analysing these dumps.

btw im from Denmark, so few files may be in danish.

A:BSOD for months...

Your dmp files indicated either you have a bad Video Driver or you have a bad memory stick.

Update your video driver from the manufacturerDownload Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool, burn it to a cd/USB stick and run memtest for at least 6-8 hours

Two months ago, I got many BSOD's, and with the help of this forum, the problems were resolved.
Since then, I have not encountered any problems.
Until today. Got a BSOD with a message Bad_Pool_Header
I have not installed any drivers or any software lately. So I do not have a hint what could cause the BSOD.

Here is the result of SF Tools:

Thanks for the support.

A:First BSOD since 2 months

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 motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.

Hi, I'm coming here because everytime I format my computer into Windows 7, it'll show up a BSOD of uncorrectable hardware error while playing games, but in this case, it's Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas.

Any ideas?

I tried replacing the hard drive, RAM, and updating my graphics card.

Hello Tony & welcome,
If you are getting BSOD's & want them analyzed please follow the directions below -

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
** Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.**

*Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl Press Enter.
*Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
*Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
*Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kb) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
Reboot if changes have been made.

About 6 months ago I was infected w Trojan/Vundo and the BC gang helped me get back on my feet. I ran ComboFix, use Ad-Aware, AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Spyware Blaster.

I enjoyed 6 worry-free months and now I'm stuck again. Windows will not complete loading--freezes. I tried to use my windows recovery in safe mode and clicking "next" prompts no further action after I've chosen a previous date. I have done a HJT log in safe mode only.

Symptoms when windows was working still:

Google results were links to other ad sites.
IE would not allow me to go to BC.com and other helpful forums but would allow me to go to youtube, google, yahoo, etc.
Updating Ad-Aware, Spybot, and AVG was not allowed.
Malwarebytes would no longer load (would show to load in the Task Manager but nothing further.)

So I feel frustrated because I can't use any malware/virus programs to clean. And I can't load windows in anything but safe mode.

Any advice would be extremely appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

A:Seems Worse than 6 months ago

Hi and welcome back. I am sending you a private message with instructions. Please follow those first and then run malwarebytes according to these instructions.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note:-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. -- MBAM may make changes to your registry a... Read more

I built my computer about 2 years ago. Here is the hardware:
Gigabyte GA-EG45M-DS2H motherboard
Intel E8500
Corsair 8GB (4x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 DHX Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL4(4-4-4-12)

Running Windows 7 in 64-bit

Every three or 4 months, the computer "dies". At start up i get blue screen saying:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
A process or thread crucial to system operation has been unexpectedly exited or

Over the last couple of years this has happened 4 times. What I did in the past was to re-install the operating system on a new, blank hard drive, and then copy over all the info from the previous hard drive. That has worked fine, which makes me believe this is not a problem with Windows, but possibly a problem with the motherboard.
What i also find strange is that after installing the OS again, things are fine for about 3 of 4 months, then ... BSOD!

Are you able to tell me more about the error message, the reason for this problem, and how to solve it?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.


A:Same problem every 3 months.

Can you please provide a JCGriff report as mentioned here? Thanks. That'll give us enough to feed on.

While waiting for us to analyze, you may also want to do some hardware tests in the meantime. Here's some options:

CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Large FFTs; 9+ hours)
RAM: Memtest86+ Run overnight (or at least 7 passes)
HD: Seatools (Short & Long Self Tests)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

To add, you can turn on Driver Verifier. Any crashes produced while it is on have a much better chance pointing us at an offending driver (if it's caused by a driver).

To this point, I've replaced the video card and hard drive once, and the RAM twice. So physically it's not any of those.

But I'm still getting crashes when I try to play games, and I can't figure it out. Very frustrating. When I get a crash, it will also crash on startup some of the time.

I would really appreciate some help to get this fixed after months and months of problems!
