Computer crashes

Q: Computer crashes

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 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 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.

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...

Hi,
 
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 there isn't anything active and continues to grow to taking up to 99% of memory before it crashes/freezes the computer and it has to be restarted then several times a day to clear the memory back down but within a few hours or sometimes less the memory will get exhausted.

Every time when I try to open My documents, or My computer, control
panel, search, or any folder on my desktop, my computer crashes. It
says, on a blue screen(!) something like this:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
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
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
manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. 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

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

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.

Thanks,

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.

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

We have XP on a computer that is only used for emails.  So we have open Microsoft Outlook, which there is no problem with, and then I open AOL.  Sometimes it's using the wheel on the mouse that causes the crash, it's definitely opening a video and sometimes it's just clicking on an email, but it's all in AOL.
 
When the crash happens the screen goes black then there is a blue and white screen that says something about the BIOS.  Then another blue and white screen that says Checking the filing system and then Checking the disc.
 
It takes a good 5 minutes for the computer to power up again so is very frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas please?

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. Spybot then ran right after starting the computer, but after scanning the computer froze again. This happened several times. What I find very strange is that if I want to shut off the computer it seems very busy and it takes forever to shut down. So something is definitely going on. ( Excuse my English....) Please help!!!

Hi.

First, my apologies as I have gone and run Combofix without any advice - I only realized I wasn't supposed to after having done so - careless I know. Basically, the problem I am facing is that my computer crashes (everything freezes except mouse still moves) forcing me to turn off the computer using the off switch. This happens without fail each time I watch a youtube video after about 20 minutes or so. After running Combofix luckily nothing has gotten worse however the situation remains the same, therefore I have decided to post the log here and I have not run any other programs since.

I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at log and identify what the problem is or offer me some advice as I'm not that computer savvy.

Thank you.

A:computer crashes

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?

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Only 37 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 46 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

C: drive only has about 5% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

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 mot... Read more

Hello jojessd and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system on this computer. Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1.a site and install Service Pack 1a. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates but do not install SP2 at this time. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system. If you are not on a broadband connection the Service Pack can be obtained from Microsoft for a nominal shipping fee.Next, Importantyour copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. If it is run from Temporary folders the backups and HijackThis itself could be accidentally deleted if the Temporary folders are cleaned. If it is run from the desktop then the backup files and folders can clutter up the desktop and be accidentally deleted. If it is run from inside a compressed file then the backups are not created at all.Please open My ComputerDouble-click on Local Disk (C:)Click on the File menu, point to New and then click on Folder.

Hi, I was hoping for a little help here. I can run my computer for hours, I can leave it on all day if i want without any problems. But when i run certain games my computer hangs constantly. Counter-strike hangs a few times, not too often though. GuildWars and City of Heroes hangs constantly! I can't run CoH for more than 20mins usually without it hanging. Occasionally though I have no problems and it can run for hours. World of Warcraft hangs occasionaly although it isn't as severe as the other two. I can't access windows at all, the entire system locks up.

I've been trying to figure out the problem, at first I thought it was my computer overheating, so I installed an extra fan and adjusted the airflow as well as install a temperature sensor program. My CPU runs at 55-60C, while my MoBo runs at 30C. My 2 HDDs run at 35-40C and there are 2 other temperatures which I think may be my graphics card? They're 55-60C as well. In my Bios my computer is set to shut down at 85C. But if my computer was overheating wouldn't the entire computer shut down?

I also attempted to run drivercleaner on my video card drivers, and reinstall the newest drivers. Still having the same problem. I also cleaned up some files, defragged my drives. My memory should be fine, I'm running 2 512mb Corsairs. So I dunno, any suggestions?

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Those seem to be all signs of an overheating issue.
Whats the watt on your PSU you have installed?

After searching online it looks like mrtrate.sys could be one of two things, either a Connexant modem driver or part of Quickbooks Pro.

Sounds like heat may be the cause. Check your processor heatsink mount and maybe clean and reapply thermal paste. Depending on what type of heatsink is being used there are guides available online for doing this. CPU would be the last thing i would suspect. Motherboard more likely.

Honestly, if you have that many problems with your computer, reformat it.

I have been through this before in different projects and I consider virus software as preventative measures because once a virus latches on it can be deadly.

I would reformat your computer and start with a clean slate, it is the most painless way to recover.

Do you get a blue screen crash (BSOD) or does it just hang?
