Preferred Solution: Reliability moniter

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 am concerned about buying an ssd drive ( OCZ vertex III 120GB for operating system), for my new pc, i've heard that they have quick reads but slow write speeds. and thus are unreliable, am i correct? isn't someone out there fixing these problems?, what should i do? thank you .(please don't email your reply as it is down)

A:ssd reliability?

SSDs are probably more reliable than mechanical hard drives. They are best suited for an OS and programs. As such, you will never notice the 'slow' write speeds. I have 5 of them and am quite happy with them and have had no problems. There have been some issues reported with the Vertex III firmware. I don't know if it has been resolved or not. My best suggestion is go to a place like Newegg and read the user reviews. They are the best judge. I'm not sure where you are, but even if you don't buy at Newegg, it is still a good place to research.

I see lots of problems come by in various forums related to marginal/bad RAM. It is somewhat surprising that more people don't spend the small additional price for ECC memory, which a vast majority of PC chipsets support today. The $20 you save on 512mb of memory is small potatoes to the hours of work and debugging you may spend trying to determine what's going on with your system. I've been equipping my PC's with ECC or parity memory since the '386 days, and I've yet to spend any time debugging memory issues. In the worst case, you get a parity error indication, for most transient errors, ECC will correct them on the fly invisibly to the user. Don't you have better things to do with your time than shoot mystery crashes?

Next time you're buying new memory, consider stepping up to ECC RAM.
 

A:RAM Reliability

ECC stands for Error Correction Code. It is similar to Parity, but more advanced. It can detect multiple errors in data returned from memory and actually correct a single error. ECC memory has 8 extra bits to support the ECC. The System board to be used must support ECC, and all of the memory in the system must be ECC for it to be actively supported. Your system board specifications will tell you whether or not you can use ECC.

System Requirements Lab. This site is mentioned in several posts here but I hestitate to follow recommendations listed on the SRL site until I hear that it is reputable. If your game does or doesn't meet minimum requirements, they have a 'recommended' list page which then leads to a site to buy the recommended item(s). Is this truly a good site and the way to go?

Test your SSDs or risk massive data loss, researchers warn

New study finds 13 of 15 flash-based solid-state drives suffer data loss or worse when they lose power.

Companies adopting flash-based SSDs as a cornerstone to the data center storage systems are risking "massive data loss" due to power outages, according to a new study titled "Understanding the Robustness of SSDs Under Power Fault" by researchers from the University of Ohio and HP Labs. In exposing 15 SSDs from five different vendors to power loss, researchers found that 13 suffered such failures as bit corruption, metadata corruption, and total device failure. The paper did not specify which vendors' drives were used.

The researchers' conclusion: "SSDs offer the promise of vastly higher performance operation; our results show that they do not provide reliable durability under even the simplest of faults: loss of power."

Hi all,

Just curious if anyone can tell me how reliability viewer is setup to view on remote win7 PC's.

I can go into Perfmon and connect to a remote PC, but when I right click on monitor to view reliability report it just opens my local machine report.

The RAC task is running on all PC, so the RACagent is up and going. I followed the technet instructions, but nothing I do seems to bring up the remote PC report. I can run the system diags on the remote PC and get all the correct info, so I know part of this is working. Its just reliability monitor that will not work correctly.

Thanks,

A:Reliability Monitor

I was curious so i played with this, and i see the Reliability Monitor history for the remote PC.
I started the remote Reliability Monitor program by typing reliability in the search box and clicking on View reliability history.

I'm a Home user, using TeamViewer free for remote access/help.

I connected from a Win 7 OS, to a remote PC running Win 7.

I am using a brand new LG burner with Nero7. With my old internal CDRW drive, I've burned CD-Rs of many brands, mostly TDK, Maxell, Sony, Dynex. I had a few coasters/bad burns with any brand I tried, the same % with cheap CD-Rs(Dynex, house brand) as with those costing twice(Sony). In fact, because of this, I only bought the cheap Dynex CD-Rs until I switched to DVD's.

Now I read not to use cheap DVD-Rs made in China, such as Dynex, Playo(which now goes for $4.99 - 60spindle at Staples). However, all brands are made in Taiwan it seems, and whichever are made in Japan either arent sold in major stores such as Circuit City, Best Buy, Staples, or are always sold out.
I wanted to stick with Dynex(50 DVD-Rs for $8.99) but picked up a spindle of 50 Nexxtech DVD+Rs at Circuit City for $7.99. Burned fine, and was verified by Nero. If that's the case, and I make 2 copies, why should I be worried that the DVDs will go bad in 3 years as I will re-burn them by that time anyway?

Under the conditions you've specified, no reason to worry at all.
To ease your mind, you might test a few you've burned for satisfactory performance on another drive if one is available.
Storing disks carefully is an important consideration, too. You can Google loads of guidance on best practice.

The Reliability Monitor of Windows 7 is a very handy tool for monitoring the history of when which applications have failed.

Being a developer, it is to be expected that applications that are "In-Development" will cause problems, which in turn negativly affects the scores of the Windows Reliability Monitor. I utility I'm creating (for personal use) crashes regularly when closed, but also only if it is run from within the RAD Studio 2010 IDE. If I run the compiled EXE from Windows Explorer, then it does not crash, so I suspect that it is some kind of incompatibility between Windows 7 and the Delphi Debugger.


As you can imagine, this scenario is seriously affecting my Reliability Monitor:


So what I'd like to know is whether or not there is a way for me to "exclude" the IGRAB.EXE from being monitored by the Windows Reliability Monitor, so that it can display only those failures that I'm interested in, without my own development projects from screwing up the scores?

I suppose I could attempt to debug what is causing the crash, but so far none of the normal debugging techniques have worked. As I said, the crash only happens if the Delphi IDE was used to launch the program...

Sorry Peter, I did search for this yesterday, but was hoping someone else would have some info. I don't think you can exclude certain programs, or even certain categories, sorry. A Guy

So I've heard Thinkpads were extremely reliable and had been recommended them by a couple of friends. Since then I've owned an X220 and a T430s. Reliability  is not the word I'd use to describe my experience. The X220 had issues because it never shut down, it would always reboot instead of shut down I believe this is a motherboard issue and is not something I would expect. The T430s had the latch of the screen break,. Also pretty strange considering I opened/closed the screen at most once a day on average, once to open it in the morning and once to close it in the evening. Before my Thinkpads I've had an Asus that lasted 5 years before having any issue (hard drive broke) and another asus vor about the same time. I find this very unfortunate, because the build quality is great, the hardware configuration guide is superb, and I love the trackpoint. I find this very unfortunate because I absolutely love them while they work, they just don't seem to work very well for me. I'm wondering if I'm the only one that is having these reliability issues and that I am just "unlucky" when it comes to thinkpads, or that reliability just isnt one of their characteristics anymore?

A:Thinkpad reliability?

The Thinkpad used to be my laptop of choice.  Now I am almost frustrated to tears with them.Of the more recent ones I have owned, my ThinkPad X220 acceptable, but the T450s I have now is a "hunk of junk".  My wife has an X230 which is greatly inferior to the X220. Lenovo has truly strayed from the path with the recent Thinkpads.  Maybe, just maybe something will come of David Hills Retro Thinkpad Project.  Until then, my next laptop will probably be a Dell or HP---or at least something like a TouchPoint.

I recently dealt with some bad ram. That is all taken care of now though (I think my GPU might also be defective, but that is a different story).

I had a thread going here during this situation. The people here said that they thought the bad ram should have no effect on the OS install. I thought that it was a possibility, and now I'm back after realizing something.

I tried using the reliability history feature that Windows 7 has. During the screen where it is gathering information, explorer.exe stops responding and restarts. I have another partition on this HDD with Windows 7 that was installed on good ram. I only used it for testing for like a day, but I just started it up and tried a reliability history. It successfully started it up. There was no data because of how little I used the partition, but it still displayed.

Now my question is what could have caused my reliability history to always crash explorer.exe? Is this from an incorrectly installed OS, or is there really a way for this part of Windows to just flat out fail. I have very little on this partition. Just my games and some music.

I am perfectly fine with reformatting. I just don't want to do it if I don't have to.

I have searched this forum--and others--for information on motherboard reliability. I found a posting on this forum by gotroordude going back to 2003, saying "...motherboard stability and reliability can almost be taken for granted these days." Didn't the bad capacitor problem show up about then?

However, what I would like to find is independent (of manufacturer) reliabilty test data--if it exits--especially if available online, although given the seemingly endless variations in products I suspect my quest is not likely to be satisfied.

I am particularly interested in comparing manufacturers (perhaps selected product groups), vs. specific products.

I would like to know if there is a knowledgebase available that provides some insight into past performance of today's primary manufacturers.

Even some anecdotal info would be helpful, although I realize it must be discounted.

No, I am not an attorney trying to find a potential class action suit--just a less than power user trying to evaluate bids for a new computer.

There are 4 sections, CPU Disc Netowork and Memory, in my setup, in CPU there is maxium frequency, in Disc there is Highest Active Time and in Memory there is physical memory used. There are blue lines and there are green areas that change frequently. I know how to change the maxium frequency in the CPU column. I don't understand the relationship between the Disc usage in the Kb/s and the highest active time. It doesn't matter much but I am just trying to get effeciency out of my Intel Duo core 2, 3Mb/s, 4 Gb ddr3 1333mhz , vista home premium 64 bit OS. I am runing Raid 1-0, if that helps.
I am playing MW2 and it is hanging up at the beginning and lagging in the single player mode and driving me nuts.
Thanks.

I downloaded and installed the new upgrade from Win 7 to Win 8 Pro on 25th Oct.
Everything as gone well with the exception of the Reliability Monitor.
It opens quickly enough but it only shows events from the period 16th to 20th Oct and states that it was last updated on the 20th Oct at 2300 hours.
Is there anyway to update it and or adjust the time of updating?
I only use my PC for a few hours each day and it is not left on overnight.
Thank you.

I downloaded and installed the upgrade from W7 to W8 on 25th Oct.
All appears well except for the Reliability Monitor. It opens no problem but only provides details commencing on the 16th Oct to 20th Oct. It also states that it was last updated 20th Oct at 2300 hours. Is it possible to update it and or adjust time of updating? My PC is only used for a few hours each day and not left on overnight.
Thanks.

I think it may be better to ask this question here.
I recently upgraded the firmware (as reqd) on the Crucial M4 128GB and it went fine. Transferred the OS using Paragon Migrate OS to SSD. It also was straightforward. Except:
My Reliability Monitor doesn't appear to update. I know one of the SSD tweaks is to disable the Reliability Monitor and thought maybe the Paragon software did this. BUT the RacTask appears enabled.
>schtasks.exe /change /enable /tn \microsoft\windows\rac\ractask

So can I ask
1) Those using an SSD is your Reliability Monitor working like it did with your spinner?
2) Those who have used the Paragon product, is your Reliability monitor working as usual?

A:SSDs and Reliability Monitor

Re question 1, yep:

But tell me more about the tweak recommending it be turned off. Never heard of that tweak.

Hello Tommy,

Has your computer been in use for at least 24 hours since the last install or reset of Reliability Monitor?

If so, then you might see if using the tutorial below to reset Reliability Monitor may have it working again after at least a 24 hour period.

Hi,
An irritating problem occurs with the Graph in above which should,ideally, remain at 10. Mine does for about a week or so. Then suddenly Applications fail everywhere i.e. Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader and a host of others "stop working" The graph sometimes plummets to 6 and crawls at snail's pace back to 7 or 8. I am lucky to reach 9 most times. Is there anything there to worry about ?. Idid Google the matter. Two suggestions were offered ..(1) a complete re-install (rather drastic as I did one a few months ago) or (2) use Firefox browser instead of the troublesome Internet Explorer. Help appreciated. Other than that system is efficient and speedy.

OK, I installed Win8 late October. I have really been trying to give this OS a try. But every day, something different keeps happening and there are NO SOLUTIONS! I cannot even run Win8 update, I get error 80244FFF. I tried the repair tool for that...nothing has worked. When I play videos, whether it be youtube, wmv, dvd, mp3, mp4, there seems to be a skip here and there. Haven't been able to fix that. (radeon HD 7800 series with latest driver) Now I am getting more problems. This is absolutely the worst upgrade I have ever experienced from Microsoft! NO FIXES NO SOLUTIONS! Just so you know, when I did the upgrade from Win 7, it was pretty much a clean upgrade because my Win7 had just gone through a total recovery (back to manufacturers installed Win7) I also spent money and upgraded my programs for Win8!. My computer is a Dell XPS 8500 64 bit.
My problems today are pictured below. Anyone have any solutions to these problems? Is Microsoft addressing any of these problems?????

Hello

I got another running but problem still unresolved. So I may brake a rule if so pleas delete this post. This is a great community and I don't want to brake any rules.

BSOD while downloading chart data

Trough Google, I found this tool: View reliability history

Attach is a snap picture.

It look to have so many error. Can I pinpoint a source for all of them?
Is it hardware, software, both ????

My un-experience bring me to suspect my SSD drive. But not sure how to test it

Any help really appreciated

Martin

A:View reliability history: What to look for

The red X is for an application or Windows error. You can get details by poking the X with your mouse. Maybe applications crashing or Windows not shutting down properly.

Doesn't look too bad to me. I've seen worse. It will vary over time.

Not likely to be your SSD.

What does it look like when you view by week instead of days? Is it much worse in the last week than it has been over the last 3 or 4 months?

Problem: the Reliability monitor is blank. There once were, but no longer is any graphic on the top screen, or source reports on the bottom (there once were).

Steps Taken so Far:
-I've cleared the RAC published and State data, Reliability history, and problem reports.

Observations:
-In Services, it shows that "Problem Reports and Solutions..." is started and on automatic.
-In Services, it shows that "Performance Logs and Alerts" is started and on manual.
-The Event Viewer is recording errors and warnings.
-The RAC published and State data files are not being remade (the folders remain empty).
-The Task Scheduler has nothing in the RAC folder.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking that their is a Task that is missing, but how would I fix that?

If it just started a quick system restore will work. I have doubts that the normal SFC advice would work in this situation

I have been hacking at this for awhile and I am out of ideas.

Win 7 Reliability Index not updating.
Checked RacTask -- It is enabled and will run
Checked services -- appears to me the appropriate ones are set to auto. But not sure exactly which ones are critical.
In Rac directory deleted old databases. Ran Rac test and it wrote new ones back. Still no update to index graph.
Looked in event viewer logs. Windows logs are showing entries that are current (dated). But in the Applications and service logs there are no entries.
If I call up reliability history via Action center it is empty. Some times It will have the message "If you have just installed Windows check back later". When I close the window and reopen it the message is gone.
SFC /Scannow shows no integrity violations. I could do a repair install but I don't want to upset the config I have. It's not worth it.
I know it takes 24hrs or more to level out from a clean start. I have gave it plenty of time over the last week.

A:Reliability Index Not Reliable

It's not exactly reliable as an indictator of anything other than umm well nothing. The only thing I can think of to fix it is a repair install, but since you don't want to do that, you'll just have to rely on benchmarks and such.

Since I got my computer I have tried to keep it running as well or better than original, which was something I used the reliability monitor for. That being said, I cannot anymore. Whenever I open it up, I get an Internet Explorer error and below is a screenshot of the error. I also have a similar error with certain help programs. I've googled for months to no avail short of forums that say "Windows Vista seems to be acting up, which means it's acting as it should."

A:Reliability Monitor Issues

Sounds like something or someone may have been over-zealous in an attempt to "clean" parts of the OS, or perhaps the registry.

Try this from an elevated CMD prompt (run as admin):

Regsvr32 vbscript.dll
Regsvr32 jscript.dll

It'll reregister some of the script handlers that would be used by that Reliability Monitor page. Does it make any difference to the outcome?
