Computer Crashes

Q: Computer Crashes

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.

Preferred Solution: Computer Crashes

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer started crashing when I would try to run Norton AV . Then it started crashing when viewing pictures and videos. Took to repair shop and they could only find some spyware. I told that that everything was backed up so to just refomat. They also tested my ram and said it was fine in the testing but suggested changing it if the problem continued. It started crashing agian soon after getting it home. I replaced my ram and it still crashes. However yesterday I did get a successful virus scan.. everything looked fine with that. It is and Asus bourd, AMD 2200, Win XP with all the current windows updates. Any help would be appreciated.

PS
I had this problem a year ago and it seemed that replaceing a ram stick fixed it. When researching that someone suggested it could be the cache on the mother board. Could that be possible?

I don't know whether I have a malware problem, or a hard-drive-in-death-throes problem, or what. But I figured it was best to start here, so if it's not a virus I can go over to the XP forum with that ruled out.

Over the past few months my desktop has been steadily driving me nuts. First it began giving me BSODs at random intervals, anything from a day to a month apart. (Currently, about once every three weeks.) The most common error is 0x0000008E, but I've also had 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x1000000A, 0x0000004E (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT), 0x0000007F, 0x0000000A (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), and 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Usually it crashes at startup, but it has taken as much as twenty minutes. I've tried defragging the hard drive, using a registry cleaner, and replacing Sygate firewall (see below) but nothing appears to have worked.

Then Sygate starting occasionally crashing while I was online. I replaced it with PC Tools free firewall, which hasn't had any problems. (Yet...)

Somewhere in the last several months (hard to say whether it was before or after Sygate and the BSODs, it seems to have been creeping up for a while) Firefox developed an increasing tendency to hang. It reached the point where it was basically non-functional for a good quarter hour after connecting. During that time doing anything - maximising or minimising windows, accessing the start menu - took forever. Then Firefox started crashing - constantly. I worked my way through the official trou...

Every time when I try to open My documents, or My computer, control

damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these

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

Hi Anamarija and welcome to TSF !

Does the problem also happen in safe mode ?

Unplug all your USB devices. Use a PS/2 mouse and keyboard for the time of the troubleshooting.

Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer. Tell us if it finds any errors on the hard drive. If you couldn't see the scan's results you'll find them in the event viewer under application in the latest winlogon entry (click on the title of the source column to sort them alphabetically).

Did the BSOD or the errors in the eventviewer mention any .exe, .dll or .sys file ?

We'll need the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump, problem is you may not be able to browse your drive to zip and attach them with your computer. Copy them to some floppy or usb drive using the command prompt : start => run => cmd. Type copy c:\windows\minidump\*.dmp x: x being the volume letter that corresponds to your usb or floppy drive. Then with another computer zip them and attach the .zip file to your next post using the manage attachments button.

Double click the errors in the event viewer, click on the third button on the right (this copies the information in the memory) and right-click => paste the complete error message here.

Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. See if there are any devices with a red cross, yellow exclamation point or whatever in front of their name. If you find anything related to your webcam then right-click =>... Read more

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:

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.

Thanks,

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

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)

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Here are my specs:
-Nvidia GTX 960 2GB
-ASUS P8B75-M LX
-I5 Processor 3.2Ghz
-Corsair CX500
-500GB Seagate HDD
-256GB Samsung EVO SSD
-8GB RAM modules

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

Any help would be super appreciated.

Ever since I had all these components installed I have been having problems installing an OS especially win 7. It brings up an error in the middle of installation and then I'd start over. Eventually, I installed the win 7 but every other thing (software or application) I try to install brings up an error in the middle of the installation and most times after the error, I get a bluescreen, then the pc restarts. I've tried everything...I tried installing with and without the new graphics card, I've tried installing with another RAM, I've tried installing on another drive etc...still, I get the same error. I don't know what exactly is giving the problem...whether it's the graphics card, the RAM, the motherboard, the Hard-drive or the power pack. I can't install anything and then the occasional crashes (blue screen). Please any advice, it's driving me crazy.

A week or so ago it started crashing (computer shut off all by itself, forcing me to manually start it back up) One day I noticed it only crashed when I scanned with AVG. So I uninstalled it and it hasn't crashed since. How can I fix this?

A:Computer crashes when I use AVG

download ESET nod32 instead, do a scan in safe mode with Nod32, and se if your computer has any viruses. it could be that a virus reacts to the virus scan, and turns completely of on impulse. because it doesnt wanna go away.
so get ESET, one of the best virus programs to be sure, it is also the one to be used if your messenger is infected. just scan in safe mode, and it erases every single virus in its database.

A:computer crashes

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

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

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

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

Hi.

You may follow this link on how to post for crashes.

What you can do for now is to check that the jumpers on the hard drives (if IDE) are set correctly.

Also, check on your memory Vdimm and timings in the bios. Make sure they are set correctly for you specific RAM modules. Visit the maker's site of the modules to find out the information on them. Use the spd tab of CPU-Z if you need to figure out which modules they are.

Make sure the pc is not overclocked at all.

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?

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.

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).

Hi,

My computer just crashes out of the blue. What happens, is the computer freezes for 5 or 6 seconds and then goes onto a blue screen that says that the physical memory is being dumped.

It also has some sort of code that may be useful to you if i can get it.

Please help me as it is very annoying, and is there anything i can try?

thanks

Hello. I have got some problems with my computer crashing. Until now i thought it was one program that i very often use that caused it, but recently ive noticed that it happens when i play games generally. My computer have been at service where i bought it, they thought i had temperature problems, but the crashes remains. I downloaded a demo to the game Doom 3, and it starts up good, i changed the settings to the best ones, all seemed to be ok. When i got in to the game and started to move, the game moved very smoothly, no "lag" at all. Then after 10 seconds my whole computer freezed and restarted, even though i shut off "automatic restart". This have happend in other games too in the past months. I have tried re-installing windows, updating all drivers, virusscans, spyware programs, and registry cleaners. Just now, i tried logging my temp just for 1 or 2 seconds when im actually in this game, then i shut it off. My 2 cpus was at 41 C, and my graphics card at about 54-55 C. This crash do not happend this fast when my computer has been shut off over a night or so, now its been on for about 5 hours, and the crash comes almost immediatly. Heres some of my system:

Intel Core2Duo @ 1886mhz each
Nvidia Geforce 7600GS
1024 DDR Ram
Asus P5B-VM Motherboard (dont know if thats all the info needed on that one)
-Hoping someone can help me

Yours, Johan

I am bumping yours, because I am having a similar problem and I haven't got much help either...

Maybe people will give us some ideas when they realize multiple people need it.
