Help! Comp crashing constantly!! Please?

Q: Help! Comp crashing constantly!! Please?

I really need help,
I have an Acer Ferrari 4000/Windows XP
I'm sorry I'm not sure what info you will need, please forgive my ignorance.
It started crashing all the time, so my husband clearing everything out and re-installed everything, but it is still crashing, but now quite as much. It's a real nightmare. I've tried twice to get this message typed before it crashed. Please help, is there any way you can look at things and maybe help me?
We really don't know what else to do on our own?

Thank you, Marie

Preferred Solution: Help! Comp crashing constantly!! Please?

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.)

recently (like within the past few days) my comp has been crashing constantly, not with the usual stuttering followed by the blue screen of death, but just straight up shutting down suddenly, the computer itself turns off, then reboots itself a few seconds later

my computer had been crashing a lot the "normal" way awhile back, but i was pretty sure it was due to a rootkit virus, and i was able to fix that, it hadn't crashed in months, and now this started

I'm posting this from my brothers laptop because my comp crashes so often that i wouldn't have time to post this from my computer

i am desperate for help and i don't really know what to do or where to go, please let me know if you need any more information and i'll do my best to provide it

A:Comp crashing constantly, never seen this before

Lets see if there are any recent dump files> Follow the instructions here> http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html
Lets see if the BSOD dump file(s) can tell us whats going on.

Then lets have a look at the temps and voltages >
D/L and run Hardware Monitor do something intense like a virus scan or gaming for a bit, Alt+Tab back to HWM expand all the trees and use the Win7 snipping tool to grab a screen shot of the HWM window, post the screen shot using the paperclip button in the advanced message box(Go Advanced button).

Hi there,

I have had a few problems with my custom built computer. I believed at first that I had malware and virus issues, however a nice technician on the virus forums said there was no problem.

I am receiving the dreaded Blue Screen of Death fairly frequently, I am not playing any games, just browsing the internet when it happens.

Secondly, my browsers (both Mozilla 3.6.8 and IE 8) are both crashing very frequently - Mozilla comes up with a report message saying it has crashed and asks me whether to send or not to send the report, whereas IE reloads the tabs frequently, but to a point the page cannot be reloaded and has to be closed down.

As well as this, a lot of my executable files are crashing - I am getting error messages from things like java, flash, avg, my network card, windows messenger etc saying that they have crashed.

This problem is happening very frequently, I cannot seem to go half an hour without browsing with no problem.

If anyone could help it would be VERY MUCH appreciated!

Thanks.

A:BSOD, exe files constantly crashing, browsers crashing.

You need to post some hardware details about your custom built computer.
Something is unstable and it could well be the memory modules.

In addition, when you see a BSoD click details, it will generally state which executable caused the problem.

I would be tempted to look for a copy of memtest and run some memory diagnostics.

I have an ACER Aspire 5250 laptop SNID 20103232016 running Windows 7.  I don't know the cause but the system has started to become very slow at times with windows going unresponsive. To get things moving often opening the task bar (cntr-alt-del) will work. But not for long.
 
I have run chkdsk with no reported issues, I updated the system bios, and a bunch of hardware drivers. I ran Avira scan, Malwarebytes scan, and the ESET scanner recommended in an earlier similar post with no issues.
 
Any suggestions?

Hi guys,
I'm having a problem with AIM (version 6.8.12.4) and Firefox disconnecting from the internet sporadically. I noticed it first with AIM. I'll be messaging people and getting no response. A couple minutes later I see the buddy list window say that the connection failed and it automatically restarts. The problem is that it does this almost constantly now and I basically can't hold conversations through AIM.

I also noticed that Firefox (version 3.0.3) stalls out when loading pages pretty often. Like I'll be watching a video and it will stop downloading the video all together. Or if I click on a webpage it will begin loading it and then stop part-way.

I'm not sure what to make of this problem. I guess could be either hardware or software that's malfunctioning. So far I've tried updating my network card's driver and switching ports on my router. I have an HP Media Center desktop running Windows XP. It's plugged into a Motorola cable modem and a Linksys wireless router, but my computer is plugged into the router. None of the other computers on the network are experiencing any problems. I've had overheating problems with this computer before. Could it be a damaged network card or a damaged ethernet cable?

Thanks for your help! Let me know if you need any more info.

A:AIM Constantly Crashing

Correction: The problem is occurring on both of the computers that are plugged into the routers, but the computer using the wireless internet is not having any problems. Broken router?

Hey there,

I have a Gateway GT5628 Desktop comp. running Windows Vista Home Premium.

I have essentially abandoned this computer and really want to get it back on it's feet. The problem I have is that the comp will spontaneously crash and restart with no warning or consistency. It ranges from 5 minutes to an hour, but rarely can it go longer than that without "revving up", crashing, and restarting.

I've run numerous spyware, adware, and virus scans and protections and they haven't helped. I even took it to Geek Squad and they didn't know how to help either.

Is there a solution, is there anything I can do, AM I INFECTED?

Thanks so much for your help.

Yes I am another one of the thousands that believe I have infected my PC somehow. I have to do a lot of searching all over the internet and have recently had to have my HD wiped and the OS reinstalled due to technical issues beyond out IT's control. They only believe in MS Forefront as a network security. I have also installed SpyBot and Malwarebytes, and as of today, have also installed HiJack This and Runscanner to see some additional items. I have been using Firefox and IE8, but recently had to remove Firefox due to viral infections from a JAVA update!

I'm starting this thread in this forum because my PC crashes when using my hard drive with Windows 7 on it and also with the drive I have XP on. I'm guessing something is wrong with my video card, but I want to make sure before I buy a new one.

This is the blue screen crash report I'm getting with Win 7:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you may need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Hi karlstpats and welcome

The Exception code C00000005 is a memory exception. Basically a memory problem. To verify this please download a third party application called memtestx86, burn it to a cd, and run it for at least 5 passes.

Let us know if you need further assistance with that.

Hello serpentracer

There are several steps to fix the problem!!

1.Disable all IE9 addons
2.Reset IE9 settings
3.Scan for Maleware (Use Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download)
4.Install all updates

If the problem is still there, take a look at the IE solution center from Microsoft.

EDIT : Sorry about posting twice, i dunno how i did it...

Hi, i'm new to this forum and in need of help. Nearly every program that connects to the internet using the .net Framework, msn(all versions including 8BETA), Visual C# 2005 Express "devoexplore", Visual Basic 2005 Express "devexplore" and also any help file (using MSOHELP.exe), such as ones used in MS Office, they all slow down dramatically, normally crashing as soon as it's loaded. Another thing that made me think its when .net connects to the internet, is that it also happens when I insert the WebBrowser class in either C#, VB and even the PowerPoint VBA program, and it even crashes in the design mode of all those programs.

I have .net Framework 1.1 and hotfix (kb886903) and .net Framework 2.0.
I cannot uninstall ANY .net 1.1 or 2.0 as it says "The insallation source is unavailable."

Any Idea?

Dunno if it'll help but my specs are:

Every time I startup this computer, Its toshiba labtop and Im running vista. Im not as familiar with vista yet as I am XP. So anyways, its suddenly the last few weeks always trying to update to restart and update these 1 of 3 updates and if you just did it when its done and restarts its asking to restart and redo it again? So everytime I restart it or turn it back on it goes through this whole process of configuring updates 1 of 3 takes 10 - 15 minutes thenafter its done and you think its gonna start up it says "Your computer was unable to start"
Startup repair will check your system for problems ...etc.
That process takes about another 15 min. Then it'll start up but it'll tell me it needs to restart and configure new updates???
Around the same time the computer started doing this, I started getting popups and freezing and not respondings all the time. It gets beteer then worse. Irun disc cleanup and defragmenter all the time, I clean temp internet files out, Im not sure if I got a bug or what. The same time it started doing that it stopped letting me connect to the wireless interenet without mt little usb adapter.

Hello I recently acquired a Dell Inspiron M5040. It came stock with

AMD E-450 APU with Raedon(tm) HD graphics 1.65GHz
4gb of DDR3 RAM

I upgraded the hard drive inside, and switched to an Intel 540 series 120gb SSD. I used a 40 dollar cable and CD to transfer the OS and drivers and such to the new SSD from the old HD.
Then I noticed I started getting BSODs, not being able to log off, shutdown, or restart. I had 4-5 crashes and minidumps, but then last night after another crash, only that crash remained in my minidump folder...weird. I tried using SF diagnostic tool, and it crashed every time after event logs success. Here is the folder I get when running SF diagnostic, grab all.

Using BlueScreenView, I attributed the bug check string to be DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE, with code 0x0000009f. The filename that is showing red is ntoskrnl.exe. In the previous errors I had the past couple days, there was also a atkimdag error file? Please PLEASE HELP! I spent a lot of money on this computer and it is such a pain to be constantly trying to fix this issue!!! Thank you!

Hello legendor.

Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool.
Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download and install those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

update the network driver. Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter - Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card
First, download the network card driver from manufactuer's/Dell's website.
Then reinstall the driver:
Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
Double click to expand "Network adaptors".
Right click your network card and click Uninstall.
Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
Restart the computer
If windows does not auto configure the appropriate drivers at startup, install the downloaded one manually.

Hi -

One reason for no BSOD dumps is your page file. The allocated base size of the page file on the OS drive must be > installed physical RAM.

Any reason for the page file on drive z: ?

Re-allocate the page file on OS drive c: - use "system managed" settings.

Also check system crash options -- should be set to "Kernel Memory Dump" which will result in a full kernel dump + a minidump upon BSOD.

Please see - NO KERNEL MEMORY DUMP FILES BEING PRODUCED UPON BSOD?

Hi,I've been trying to find out why IE7 is freezing and crashing on me everytime I try and close out a browser window. I'm running WinXP, btw. I looked up some stuff on Microsoft Knowledge Base and I thought Article 909363 sorta described whats going on, if you want to look that up. Problem is I can't install the hotfix for it because install says I'm already running the most current version of the file. I noticed it also locks up when certain browsers with applets or similar content are working.It's driving me crazy and I can't close out any browser windows or even load certain pages because it will crash all instances of IE running.Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

My Windows 7 is constantly crashing during video games and streaming shows. There isn't a BSOD it just shuts down then reboots. Even then it doesn't always reboot all the way. I have tried restoring and antivirus scans though I can't seem to pinpoint the source. Any help or advice would be helpful.

A:My windows 7 is constantly crashing.

Is it happening during one game only or more than one? Cause it sounds to me like there is some sorta hardware issue going on causing it to reboot like that and or a software issue(s) as well. I would open the command prompt and do a sfc /scannow to scan for any system integrity errors. Click start, programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator. Then type sfc /scannow. Let it scan and see if it finds any issues. If that does not fix the issue post back.

Hi. I've been trying to figure out where I'm having problems with my (re)build for the last couple of days. I'll list the components first:

MOBO: Biostar A780L
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250
GPU: Nvidia Geforce 7600 GS (not currently installed due to suspected hardware issues)
RAM: K-Byte DDR2 PC5300
PSU: OCZ500SXS
OS: Windows 7 Pro

Ok, so I'm essentially starting from scratch with this rebuild which was originally an Acer AST160. I clean installed Windows 7. After intensive use of the internet, I either get ntfs.sys or tcpip.sys BSODs. It's already bad enough that I have to scrap the GPU since I can't even get W7 to install w/out crashing. So I suppose this is a two fold problem. How should I go about solving these issues?

Everything has been fine so far but today, whilst in the middle of some internet browsing, it says that windows explorer has crashed and it automatically tries to restart. It tries to restart only to crash again, and again etc. It's to the point where I cannot click on anything or even open the start menu.

I have tried to boot into safe mode, but the same thing happens. I have looked at the task manager and nothing jumps out at me. I just dont know how to even begin to solve this problem.

I bought a new system on Friday and got it home all excited and ready to use. Installed a couple of my games and they hard lock the system after about 1-2 minutes of play (cannot alt+ctrl+del, alt+tab or anything but reset the machine). This happens in COD4, Crysis, Bioshock and NFS:Pro Street.

I have installed the latest DirectX:June update, and tried it with 175.70, 175.16 and 177.41 drivers. Turned off Firewall, AV before playing the game. The system I have is an E8400, 4GB Corsair 6400 memory, Galaxy 8800GT (My GPU-Z pic is below), Gigabyte EP45-DSL3 M/Board. I'm also running Home Premium x64 edition that has already come with SP1 installed. PC is not overheating as it happily stays around 35-45 before it crashes. Nothing is OCed and everything is at its default settings.

Any other assistance would be great. I knew I avoided Nvidia for 6 years for a reason :\

The other day I had gotten a virus on my computer. I thought I had removed it because my anti-virus software (McAfee and Malwarebytes) said that no threats have been found. I had also scanned several times. After that my computer is constantly crashing on normal windows, and works fine on safe mode. The computer does not fully freeze, but after 5-10 minutes of use, the mouse will turn into the blue loading circle and the programs will not respond nor does the bottom task bar. The only thing that works is the mouse moving and that even freezes sometimes. I am not sure what virus it was, but I do know that it changed my default search engine into something called "searchcore.net". I already got rid of that, but I am not sure why my computer is crashing. This only started happening after the virus. My OS is Windows 7. Any answers are appreciated and thanks for your time.

Basically I bought a second hand computer about a month ago. I've stuck XP on it, and it worked fine for a few weeks ago. Then, it started turning itself off every few hours. I thought maybe the CPU was overheating, so I replaced the thermal gel, which appeared to fix the problem. A few days later, it started re-setting itself, and upon start up, displayed the 'Active Desktop Recovery' screen, along with an error box, telling me that 'Window search indexer had encountered a problem and needed to close', which was followed by 3 or 4 similarly worded error boxes. I'm completely stumped. I've considered re-formatting it, but I'm not sure whether it's software or hardware problem. It also seems to be crashing at completely random intervals. Can anyone shed some light on what might potentially be wrong with it? I'd really appreciate it!

A:Computer constantly crashing. Help!

As it's second-hand I would start by testing the RAM & the hard drive:

RAM Test. As Windows seems to be unstable, I recommend using a bootable CD version to test it. Download the ISO image for creating bootable CD (Windows - zip) from here: Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

Then download IMGBurn to create a CD from the ISO file: Download ImgBurn 2.5.5.0 - FileHippo.com

When the CD is created, boot your second-hand PC from it and run the test for at least five passes.

Hard Drive test. Download the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software from the appropriate link at top of this page: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.
Again, I recommend you download the DOS version and make a bootable CD from the ISO file with IMGBurn. Boot the second-hand PC from that CD. The testing interface will open automatically. Select the hard drive to test and run the "long test" if available.

Around 2 months ago, I re-installed Windows 8.1 with the same software and settings as all my other installations.

After that I kept seeing this error pop up randomly;

and has done that ever since. It has no correlation to what I'm doing it seems, sometimes I can see it 3 times within 5-10 minutes, other times it won't happen for hours. It even minimizes the games I'm playing when it pops up, which is the main reason why I want it fixed.

Right now I'd rather not re-install again, as I plan on moving to Windows 10 as soon as humanly possible.

And MSN messenger won't let me sign in (says the service is unavailable) and MSN (groups and Hotmail) pages won't appear.

Today is even worse, I had to reboot 3 times before I could even access the net at all. Most pages won't display and the ones that do are slow, and usually incomplete.

I've run a full AVG virus scan - clean
A full online virus scan with HouseCall - clean
Spybot - clean
Adaware just found some cookies, nothing more.

I have ZoneAlarm running all the time as well.

I've cleaned out cookies, files and history. Cleaned the disc and defragged.

It started after I took a hard drive from an infected computer(thinking I could format the infection out of the drive) and put it in this one, and even after I noticed the crashes and removed the drive, it keeps crashing. I'm running Vista SP2 if that's of any consolation. Also it crashes when I try to open pictures,listen to music, and refresh my windows experience index( it says "new hardware detected" and "your windows experience index needs to be refreshed"). Can somebody please help me?

It sounds to me like you need to go ahead and re-seat everything you might have knocked something loose without even realizing what you have done even if you have already checked that check again anything and everything that can be unplugged inside the machine un-plug it and plug it back in firmly.

Ok I will tell you how it started and then explain my problem to give you as much info as I can. I downloaded a few movies from frostwire (big mistake i learned my lesson) and after that my computer started acting weird. I deleted frostwire and all the files and Trend Micro quarantined several viruses. I waited 2 weeks for an update to come out that would let me clean them but it never happened so I deleted the infected files. Anyways after anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours my computer will lock up and will make skipping noises or it will make a loud beep, or I will get the blue screen. I usually got the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I ran memtest and it passed 8 times with 0 errors. So then I followed the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Removal Help instructions. I have DDS.txt and Attach.zip are saved to my desktop. However when GMER.exe was scanning it would go for a minute and then I would be redirected to the blue screen. Both times the error was fault_in_nonpaged_area Problem caused by- pxtdqpog.sys I was told it is probably a virus and told to come here. I have my OS reinstallation cd with the key still. I would really appreciate some help with this problem. Thanks!

**note- laptop runs perfectly normal until I get a sudden crash.
