Comp crashing constantly, never seen this before

Q: Comp crashing constantly, never seen this before

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

Preferred Solution: Comp crashing constantly, never seen this before

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.)

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).

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Hi all.  I'm new to the community, but this is my second Think Pad.  Brand new, T460P, 6820HQ, 16G Ram, 512G SSD, extra life battery, running the Windows 7x64 Pro downgrade from Windows 10Pro.  I've had it for about 3 weeks now, and I have a problem (and have had since day 1) where internet explorer keeps crashing.  Typically, I'll get a popup message that says that internet explorer has stopped responding and needs to close.  If I wait for a few seconds before acknowledging the error, I don't "normally" lose my place, but sometimes, if it happens while I'm typing text, It'll wipe out my typing.  I have run windows update, and lenovo update, to no avail.  Has anyone experienced this issue, and been able to successfully fix it?  Open to most suggestions.  don't need to hear answers such as "use chrome, firefox, etc' and 'why windows 7, use windows 10'  I have my reasons for all, and it I.E. shouldn't be crashing. Same version of I.E. is perfectly stable on my t500 running identical OS / updates. I've included a screen snip of the error.

I would appreciate some help with this issue. My Samsung RV511 laptop has recently just started crashing during browsing of the internet. Crashing to the extent that I cannot even load task manager and have to restart. I had my suspicions it was AVG as it took alot of my CPU power but to no avail, its still happening.

It appears as though my physical memory is a ridiculous 97% most of the time during crashing and I am not doing anything out of the ordinary. I have also scanned my computer for any malware/virus' but there is nothing.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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. 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?

Hi all,

My system has been crashing consistently over the last few weeks. I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue or a software one. I've tested all my RAM sticks and received no errors.

Windows updated to anniversary edition last night and since then, the PC has crashed twice already. My system's reliability monitor is showing critical events at every crash, but I have no idea what they mean.

Any help/thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi, since about a month ago my computer keeps crashing. 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.

My laptop keeps on crashing, whilst playing on world of warcraft, my laptop just completely switches itself off without warning. As of yet, has only crashed whilst playing wow. This is also not due to overheating, as im using a separate fan unit, after heat issues arose

Using an acer laptop - aspire 5610 - with Xp proffesional, media centre.

Also sometimes, after restarting the laptop, and selecting the screen name, it comes up with my background wallpaper, but no icons, start bar, etc - only way to get rid of this is turning the power button off.

Included a hijackthis log (hope i've done it right)

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Laptop Constantly Crashing

Hi and welcome!

I looked at your HJT log, but as you are aware, only authorized people are allowed to verify information in this log. I personally, did not see anything WRONG with it. Once again, I’m not qualified on this board to act on HJT logs.

My reason for responding is that I will put my money on your system overheating and powering off! Even though you have the “plate fans”, this does not mean that the system will not overheat! I have been through the exact same process a few times with a couple of my laptops. They get hot, overheat and just power off even when having additional cooling underneath them.

Which, in theory would make sense. Your system gets hot because of the amount of pressure the system gets while playing the game. They are more processor and graphic intense than your regular applications. Have you ever tried watching a DVD on your system (if possible) and then seeing if it will shutdown? Maybe trying a game that is of the same intensity on your CPU and GPU?

Also, you have a ton of stuff starting up on your system. What amount of memory do you have installed and what is the memory usage on the system?

If you want someone to analyze your HJT log for you, you will have to put the thread in the “Malware Removal & Hijack This Log” area. You can contact a moderator and have them move the thread for you if you like.

Thanks!

Hi,

I bought a new HP laptop about two weeks ago with Vista Home Premium pre-installed on it. 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.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I've been using Firefox for years now but in the last month or so it's began crashing around 10 times per day.
The crashes usually happen when I click the "Bookmark" tab, Firefox will freeze and then the "Not responding" appears at the top of the window, it happens about 70% of the time i click Bookmarks.
This also happens EVERY time I try and clear my "Browsing and Download History" - so essentially i'm no longer able to wipe history anymore. I am however still able to clear the cache, cookies and search history etc.

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling firefox. I tried running my CCleaner to clear the registry and that. I've run Malwarebytes and AVG in case there's something else causing this. Nothing works.

Any ideas? I'm not exactly proficient is computers by any means so please try keep it as simple as possible
Thanks.

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 keep getting the blue screen when I try to load my computer through normal settings. It crashes with a blue screen at the "Windows Vista" loading screen with the bar, and then restarts, and then repeats. This was after I used System Mechanic to "optimize" my system by compressing the registry, optimising memory useage and defragmenting the drive (although I cancelled defragmentation mid-way). It keeps crashing over and over, or loads the desktop with just a black screen. When I try to use the Task Manager, it tells me that the application failed to initialize.

The error message that I'm getting on the blue screen is:
"disk.sys
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
It then does a "memory dump" before restarting, and doing the same thing over and over.

I have Hiren's Boot CD 9.8, but I don't know which programs to use to get it back. I tried a partitioning tool, because I didn't know what it was and thought it could help [I know, very stupid...], and it fixed 3 "partition errors" but all that seemed to do is hide my D:/ drive when I load up my computer in Safe Mode. Although, when I start Windows Mini XP via the boot CD, the C:/ and D:/ drives are still there, with all data intact.

I'd like to try some methods rather than factory resetting my computer immedietly.

Can anyone help? Or suggest programs to use on Hiren's Boot CD? Or even any alternate suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

Hi guys,

Been a while since posting here but theres a problem with my pc im totally flummoxed with.

For a few months now my pc has been hard locking at random, usually about once a day at different times, just a complete lockup, with no error message or anything and it makes a sound like DRRRRRRRRR if theres anything that makes noise like a game or music running.

When this happens i have to press the reset key on the case to restart the machine then it continues like nothing happened. When its working the pc seems to be running fine, playing games at high resolutions etc, and ive checked the temps on speedfan, they seem fine (70c on GPU under load (playing batman arkham asylum maxed out), 43c cpu, chipset around 50c).

Im using the latest drivers for my card from nvidia's website and checked my other drivers, they seem up to date, and checked for any viruses/spyware and there are none.

One thing that does seem unusual though is if i change a piece of hardware, like unplug the ram, move it to another dimm socket then put it back in, the crashes stop for a couple days then start again, or if i remove the gpu then put it back in the same thing.

Here is my DXdiag file to take a look at:

i am thinking that there must be some dll missing.
SO here comes the frustrating part, after like 10 seconds, the process called wuauclt.exe starts running and stops and starts immediately again and then stops, i can see this through my process explorer. i have no idea why this windows update program works like that, so then i try to terminate it but i can't so i terminated the one of svchost.exe and that killed the wuauclt.exe from going on and off and using some around 30 of cpu constantly.
then after another 20 sec my comp goes to the "blue death" screen indicates system failure and says things about restarting with safe mode and asking for support and stuff, then i am forced to shut down cause it wont respond.

check event viewer (type eventvwr in search) for critical errors (they have red in the left column) that say app hang, app crash, or anything related to sound

when you find them use the built in snipping tool to make a screen shot, and up load it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a peper clip ) in the reply form

Computer keeps crashing repeatedly. I've been trying to narrow down the cause but can't...

I can make it crash with graphics hardware accel on full when I load up a game such as Counterstrike and then minimize out to my desktop, my PC crashes and sound loops.

My PC also crashes occasionally when running iTunes. The sound loops and PC freezes.

Also occasionally happens when loading video files in VLC or from the Web via divx player or whatever.

There are also just the random crashes that happen under no set circumstances. The PC just freezes and sound loops, or I get a bluescreen.

I tested my RAM last night using a boot CD with RamTest, it's 100% working, no errors...
I've repaired my registry several times, I do that regularly. I run nod32 and spybot S&D, so that's clean. I've got several GB of HD space free...

When I turn my graphics hardware accel off I haven't been able to make the PC crash. This leads me to the assumption that it's my graphics card that's causing the crashes? Anything I can do to narrow this down? It's really annoying!... :(

Hi,

It sounds like you have a faulty video card or a power supply that's not strong enough.
If you're lucky it's the video driver that needs to be reinstalled/updated. What driver version are you using?

I did that last night.From just a luddite perspective on this log, I already see things I do not want on this computer.Here is my HJT log (the log took over 3 minutes to finish):Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 4:50:06 PM, on 9/17/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\Hp\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exeC:\Program Files\HP\hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exeC:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SpySweeperUI.exeC:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware\SUPERAntiSpyware.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exec:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Softw...

A:Help! Computer Crashing Constantly!

Hi Dutch Girl, I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. Before we start, you need to realize that you are missing one important program on that computer: An antivirus. This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world. You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer. I recommend you download the free Avast or AntiVir orAVG antivirus Products from all three vendors received the Virus Bulletin's VB100% award and certification for virus detection from ICSA Labs.Never install more than one antivirus scanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give you problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously! I see that you are running msconfig in /auto mode which means that you may have selectively removed some items in the past from the startup procedure. This can be bad if they are malware, so we would like you to reenable those startup entries by doing the following:Please click on start, then run, and type msconfig and then press enter. When the window opens click on the startup tab and make sure there are checkmarks in every entry. Then press ok until you are out of the program. If it asks to reboot, do not reboot. It is not necessary to reboot to get the items to show up in HijackThis. Now please create a new Hijackthis Log and post it as a reply.

RELEVANCY SCORE 48

Hey guys, well basically my computer is constantly crashing what I mean by this is an application will first stop working, followed by every other application then my mouse will freeze and the orange light on my system stay's on (the processor light I think). Then what usually happens is when I reboot the system it will fail to boot by staying stuck on windows loading screen or crash again a short while after I log in, this can usually be stopped by pulling the power and SATA cable out of my hard-drive, blowing on them, and putting them back in (weird?). Now what's even weirder is I have re-installed the OS several times, tried differen't OS's replaced the SATA cable and power cable as well as bought a whole new hard-drive but the problems persist. So im not sure what to do right now as sometimes the crashes cause the boot sector to go corrupt and cause me to have to format and re-install (a friggin pain in the ***). At the moment Im'm using windows XP, I have tried Vista but the same problems occur.

here's my Dxdiag log, im not sure what else I need to post

A:Computer constantly crashing

I believe you're conflicts are a result of the AMD and XP SP 3. http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/windows-xp-sp3-amd-stop-0x0000007E.html There is a conflict between the two. http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/windows-xp-sp3-amd-stop-0x0000007E.html This particular site has the patch for the two but Microsoft site also has it. Please read up on the issue and download the patch to see if things clear up before you rip into other things. Jazz
