Q: My computer crashed a couple of days ago

A couple of days ago I was using Windows 8.1 and suddenly my computer crashed. I was able to download my Windows 8 Pro version because I still had my Windows 8 Pro Product key. However, all my Windows 8.1 emails, bookmarks, etc., etc. have been lost.
How can I obtain my Windows 8.1 info and download it to my new Windows 8 account?

Preferred Solution: My computer crashed a couple of days ago

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.)


Hi, I love this site and you guys have helped me so much, so first of all, thank you!

Now the bad news.... I got the WIndows Vista Repair virus about a month ago on my Acer PC. At first, it ran all of those warning messages and then it shut down the computer and reloaded as what appeared to be a completely wiped computer. The only icon on the desktop was the Windows Vista Repair. I tried to find programs by searching for a few minutes before trying to shut down (which the virus had also made me incapable of doing), and resorting to popping out the battery to shut it down. I restarted in safe mode with networking and tried to get on this site, but even in safe mode my browser was auto-redirecting me to sales sites. By following instructions for removal on this site, and downloading programs onto a flash drive from a different computer, I was able to get my computer in working order again, although it would still, at times, randomly shut down my internet browser (and the process and amount of time I spent getting it just to that state of operation was ridiculous, much worse than any virus I've EVER had...I can explain what all happened and the steps I took if necessary). A couple of weeks later, I left my computer on while I went to a friend's house for the night, and when I came back in the morning I couldn't get it to unfreeze. I shut it down and for the next two days, every time I tried to turn it on it would just run on a loop, booting up part of the way bu... Read more

When I reboot my computer, the computer works fine for like 5-10 minutes. After about 5-10 minutes of being online, the computer begins to lag (closing windows is delayed like 5 seconds, text shows up a couple seconds after being typed, or when I click the 'show desktop' icon it takes like 10-15 seconds for the desktop to show up). This happens every once in awhile, but not everytime. I have run AvG antivirus and Spybot S&D, and nothing comes up. My HJT log is below, is there anything noticeably wrong with it? Thanks in advance!

A:Laggy Computer over the last couple of days

Hi there, I have been helped by this forum before. I have had no problems for about six months.

My computer has started to get the dreaded blue screen sometimes, or just freezing. When I try to reboot, the computer just beeps and nothing happens. I turn the computer off from behind for about ten mins and restart. Everything is fine sometimes for hours.

I am running Zone Alarm, AVG free antivirus, AVG anti-spyware, Spyware blaster, Spybot and Ad Aware. No virus or malware shows up.

My system is Windows 2000 with the latest MS Windows updates(SP4).

Here is my hijackthis log: Hope You can help with some insight.

You should uninstall Ewido anti-malware, as AVG Anti-Spyware is it's replacement, and having both serves no purpose other than to slow your machine down.

Random crashes can be for many reasons, among them hardware failure, overheating, OS corruption, and yes, malware.

That said, I do see evidence of one bot in your log.

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%

Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

A couple days ago my computer (not this one) has started acting weird. Like when you turn it on the IBM screen comes up, then it tells you that you have like 30 seconds to start in the last good config, safemode, or normally. The when you choose one the windows xp logo comes up and acts like its loading, then the bsod flashes really quick and the whole thing restarts and does that all over again.

But now the game I'm playing (sims 3) is clunking and even crashing if I'm not careful.

The first time I played it it went flawlessly.

Could it be a RAM issue? Does it hold memory until it's purged, or what? I have 3 GB on a new compaq presario CQ62.

even though I have only a browser on with no video. I tried re-booting it but sames problem.

It seems like some sort of fan problem because usually I can feel the heated air coming out from the side but right now I don't feel it so I guess the heat cannot escape because the fan wouldn't blow the heat out!

My warranty is over too, it's slightly over a year that I bought it.

I guess trying to fix the fan would be something that only experts can do?

Hi Girom, It sounds like the one of the laptops fans have gone , Buying a likely replacement is not so difficult if you go the Ebay route search out your model in "laptop spares and accessories" ,Installing is not too hard to do either .
I don't think a laptop cooler will help you much as it's not direct on the CPU or GPU

I currently run a macmini (2012) using Bootcamp 5.1 and Windows 7. I remotely login to this using teamviewer.

The sole purpose of this computer is to be a Plex media server and to connect to my printer in order to use Google Cloud print. The movie files are kept on a network drive run separately.

Up until two weeks ago I have had problems with random restarts and I am not sure why?

I can not recall any particular upgrades to the system. I do always install the latest Plex media software whenever it is suggested.

Initially I wondered whether it was my antivirus software but have switched from Avast to Bitdefender to Microsoft Security.

I have noticed that Chrome does occasionally crash with an unhappy folder with a message saying Aw, Snap!

I would appreciate any help.

Many thanks.

A:Urgent - Need Help - Turtle Slow Computer - (only in town a couple days)

Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Don't have much installed yet other than Windows and some drivers and essential programs. Two of them occurred after about 15 minutes of prime95, but since then I've run prime95 for hours with no issue (temps have never gone about 60 degrees - isn't OCed yet, and using NH-D14 cooler). Other two occurred when I wasn't really doing anything, just web browsing. Updated mobo bios and crucial m4 ssd firmware, ran the windows memory test, double-checked the seating on the ram.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Don't want to start tweaking any settings or installing more stuff until I can get this resolved. Thanks for any assistance!

A:Brand new build, 4 BSOD in first couple days, no OC or computer strain

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

Since its only 2 days old I am sure you don't have much to lose.

Find the disk that came in the box and reinstall Vista. After doing that get it updated right away and you should be back to normal 100%.

A few days ago, my computer was working fine, I had no problems.
But yesterday, I tried to boot up, and as usual, took me to the login screen. I log in and everything is horrible. the mouse is lagging and jerks around, the bar with the start button doesn't respond, and initially everything was just extremely slow. I tried to open my antivirus to run a scan to try to find a problem, but everytime I click on something the computer freezes and doesn't register that I tried to open a program. So I restarted the computer and tried to wait a bit to let it catch up before I try to do anything but after a few seconds it just bluescreens. I've tried going into the boot settings and using the last good configuratoin, but that didn't help. The only thing I can think of to do is completely reinstall Windows and I'd rather not do that. I guess it wouldn't be too horrible as everything that I can think of that I really care about keeping is also saved to cloud storage, but I would still rather not have to reinstall everything I have as well.

Has anyone else had similar problems and can I fix it without completely reinstalling Windows?

A:Computer was working fine 3 days ago now keeps crashed on startup

Welcome to the forums!

Did you boot into safe mode to run antivirus there? Are you seeing the bad behavior in safe mode also? Hopefully not.
Alternatively, boot to your repair disc (CD). You have one, right?
Finally, do you have access to another computer you can use? You could pull the drive on the 1st computer and repair the software on the second computer (accessing the drive as as an external device).

Hi, starting from 8th july (where as i have remembered) I'm experiencing slow down in my operating system, I did not install any program during last week. However, yesterday I cleaned system from "ccleaner" and then used "malwarebyte" to remove any possible malwares but did not notice any improvement. I'm using "kaspersky 2007" and also have scanned whole system but did not find anything or any improvement. So please help me out about this problem. Thanks for all your cooperation.

A:A couple BSOD in the last few days.

Well, just bsod'd again. It was a little different from the other 3. I was browsing the internet and all of a sudden my Chrome window froze. I tried to close it stopped responding. Then I tabbed to a My Computer I had open, it froze as well. About 10 seconds later the whole computer locked up and I got a blue screen for about 1/10th of a second and then it shut off.

Upon rebooting I got the Bootmgr missing screen. Rebooted into bios and saw that my ssd wasn't listed. Opened the case up and unhooked/rehooked it up and now it's working again. So now I wonder, is my sata cable bad? My sata port bad? My ssd itself bad? Or was this a totally unrelated BSOD from the previous 3?

A:PC started going SLOW a couple of days ago...

no-one can help me out?

Read other 1 answers

I usually don't turn my computer off, but let it hibernate. This never caused problems, but lately, everytime after about a week, Windows became unstable. Part of the text disappears from the screen, like some text from web pages and the text 'start' on the start menu. When I try to start programs, I get various error messages, like 'The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000012d)'.
When I close some programs, the system seems to work again for a couple of minutes, but then the problems start again.

(It might also occur when i do not use hibernate, but keep my computer on for a couple of days, but I didnt try this.)

It looks like Windows is running out of memory or running out of some other resource? How can i check which resource is exactly running out?

Physical memory is 458,224 kB, of which at the time of the problem about 84MB free and 114 MB system cache - not very different from the values during normal use.
Kernel memory during time of the problem is total 188 MB - a lot higher than during normal use. However, I don't know what kernel memory is, how to reduce it, and whether it might cause this kind of problems.

I am using Windows XP Home SP3. Processor is AMD Sempron 3000+.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I thought I had fixed my problem of windows crashing, and all was well for awile.. now it seems to crash every couple days. Doesn't matter what I'm doing, or if the computer is idle. Whene I look @ the logs.. ehPrivJob.exe. keeps showing up and MCUpdate.exe.

It gave me a bug check, and when I look it up. Says Bug Check 0xC2: BAD_POOL_CALLER ( 0x000000C2).

I'm debating on if I should just format and re install a clean copy of Windows 10, vs the upgrade from Window 7 I have currently. I have a SSD, and Win 10 on a USB drive. So it should be quick, even with re installing drivers and such.

Hello Djjeesh66, welcome to SF!

I'm missing some of the files in the upload, mainly msinfo32...

But, your last two dumps are clear: bugcheck 124:

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 Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

As you can see in the link provided, some of the steps are a bit technical. No idea how much technical stuff you are comfortable with.... so please only try things you really understand.
This is a hardware issue somewhere, we can help with tests to identify... but the thing is 5 yrs old... don't be surprised if you have some trouble there....

Greetings Kasper

Since you have been having BSOD's since February and have been in several threads there must be something in common between all of them.

IF YOU ARE OVERCLOCKING STOP. Reset anything you have changed back to default. If you changed the hardware revert back to the original configuration,
In this current round of BSOD's (since sept) you have a driver that has been verified (4 times) as the cause of these crashes and it MUST be removed.
It is Related to dtsoftbus01.sys Virtual Bus Driver from DT Soft Ltd. Any software by DT SOFT (like daemon tools, etc) has to be removed.

Let us know if the crashes are still present after its removal.

First, I'm a new member so hello, and now the problem.

Last month I built a computer and installed the Windows 7 64bit OEM I purchased alongside the components. Since then I have had to reinstall Windows at least 8 times after varying lengths of use. After reinstalling i run chdsk, then scannow, at first scannow comes up clean but after a day or two it begins to find corrupt files it cannot repair, then shortly after that Windows stops booting altogether. I have checked each piece of hardware and none are faulty or broken, so I am at a loss as to how to solve the problem. Any help would really be appreciated.

I run dual monitors on my computer when i connect the second one it works great for a couple of days and then goes black i cant get it back on the power buttons light does not come on if someone has a suggestion on anything to try that would be great. It is a Samsung if that helps at all.

A:Monitor goes black after a couple days of use

I have had issues with monitor power cause unlike the vga/dvi connector there is no screw holders to hold the power cord in. And since lcd monitors typically plug upwards into the back they can come loose. I actually had a single lcd that stopped working and all I did was slide it a little from one position on the table to another (it wasn't on at the time). It was days before I realized the power cord was in far enough to light the little green power light, but not enough to power the screen. Once I pushed it all the way back up, it worked fine.

Hello, any help on my problem is much appreciated.

I have experienced the BSOD seemingly randomly every so often on my new computer build.

It has a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premum 64 bit and I haven't installed very much software on the computer because of the problems.

I've tried disconnecting dvd drive, network adapter, and ram to isolate the problem with no success.

Memtest ran for 4 passes with no error. Should I try it again?
One of the BSOD screens recommended a DSKCHK which ran with no errors.

Thanks for the help.

I have recently installed Firefox, drivers for a n52 speedpad and the audio drivers for my system. I am getting random BSODs and it seems like any time I use my front USB ports also. I am assuming that it is my audio drivers that are causing the problems, but I have also heard that Firefox is not very stable on 64 bit machines. If I am playing music when the BSOD happens, then the music buzzes until the dump is done.

I am new to Windows 7 but not new to computers. If anyone could help me pinpoint my problem, I would be very appreciative. Attached is a minidump zip.

hi and welcome

as you can see you have a monster memory problem. Rather than doing all of these I would
Download memtestx86 and run overnight

ryn a system file check to verify and repair your system files to do that
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow
download cpu-z, and gpu-z both free to check your temps for you might have a heat issue

Let us know the results

Ok, so im new to the pc building. So I dont know a whole lot yet. I built my first computer last year and i have recently upgraded to me new hardware.

Everything was working just fine for 2-3 weeks. Over the last few days Core 1 would be under 45%-70% constant load while idling. I turned off my pc and unplugged everything and gave it a good blow out. This seemed to clear it up for about 24 hrs. Then it started again. Also 3 out of 8 core randomly got parked which i have never noticed before. And wouldnt start up under stress. I change the settings in "regedit" so that they would always be working.

The second time my core started to have a constant usage while idling i noticed in the resource monitor that "system interrupts" was using a huge amount. So i gave it anouther cleaning and it seemed to bring down the usage to normal levels. When i look at the resource monitor it says there are still system interrupts. They are only using about 0.02.

Is there a permanent fix? Is there always system interrupts?

Well that is about it I think. Help would be awesome. Thank you.

Hi dashingw !

What other errors or warnings do you see in the event viewer ? Tell us about the source and the ID #.

Error 0x000000f4 sometimes is related to some bad cluster on your drive. Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /F /R (provided c is the volume letter of your system drive). Answer no when it asks to unmount the volume then yes to schedule the scan at next restart and reboot the computer. Tell us how that went.

Hi, I have returned here because Im so sick of my problem!
The last time i was here, my Vista was very slow no even system recovery could help. Well, I got my comp to some computer pros and they were able to remove the lag.
Lets start from the day I got the comp.
Well, I got the comp and I was happy coz everything worked just perfect as it should. But after a couple of days when I played mabye for 4 hours, the computer started to respoce slower so I thought "Oh its getting tired, better reboot..."
After the reebot the computer booted for mabye 20 minutes, if I wanted to run any application it took me another 20 minutes to just get it started "Ccleaner for instance". So I got worried and thought this was the same thing I got last time so first I tried to restore the computer to a previous date which is whan I installed Battlefield 2 (I remembered that everything was working just fine then). After the recovery, everything came back to normal, but I lost a couple of things on my computer which I had to reinstall.
So I do this restore to the same day every time i get this, and I get this like every 2 or 3 days. Today I got this again and Im just tired to have to resotre my computer every time and have to reinstall what I lost.

A:Vista super slow every couple of days

First of all, if you use <alt> Print Screen, you will capture only the active window,so you won't have such a large picture to post.

In most computers that didn't come with a system recovery disk, the D: drive is the system recovery, so having it close to full is pretty normal.

Since the problem seems associated with one of the items you installed, either Battlefield or something afterward, one or more of them might need to be run in compatibility mode.

Beyond that, here is an answer I posted in another thread for someone with a similar problem. From your post, it looks like you've already tried some of the things I mention, but maybe some others will be usefull.


The behavior you describe is most often associated with resource limitations that can develop either when a computer is reaching maximum memory capacity, or maximum simultaneous processes.

The memory problem can be solved by archiving old data files and removing them from the hard drive, and by clearing cookies, temp directories, and a few other locations, then defragging the disk. Once these optimization steps are done, virtual memory can be reset to accomodate the higher workload.

Simultaneous processes are a little more difficult, because sometimes it's very hard to determine which processes are needed by applications you use, and which are not. The first thing to do is make sure there are no known malicious programs running. There are several very good anti-virus, anti-spy, and fir... Read more

Hi Marcin,
Start troubleshooting your problem by removing Avast and replace it with MSE.
You may go back to Avast after your Windows have stabled.

Remove Alcohol or Daemon software because they use sptd.sys which is notorious for causing BSOD in windows 7.
Uninstall sptd.sys with this tools --> DuplexSecure - Downloads
Then for alternative software, you may use MagicIso.

One dump have bugcheck code 0x119 (VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR), so I would recommend you to reinstall your Graphic driver.
While reinstall, better to remove current driver with driversweeper then install the fresh copy of your ATI drivers.
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Another dump blame on PxHelp20.sys as the cause, it's Sonic CD/DVD driver (used by many different CD/DVD programs). So better to reinstall that programs as well.

Then these drivers need do be update:

Your Logitech Camera drivers:
lv302af.sys Sat Jul 26 07:59:32 2008
LV302V32.SYS Sat Jul 26 08:05:07 2008
lvrs.sys Sat Jul 26 08:05:18 2008
LVUSBSta.sys Sat Jul 26 07:59:36 2008

lirsgt.sys Sat Mar 07 07:17:27 2009 --> part of a Copy Protection platform developed by Tages SA
Rt86win7.sys Fri Nov 27 01:44:53 2009 --> Realtek NIC driver
