Preferred Solution: My computer crashes, can someone tell me why?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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?

Hello Sevenforums. 3 - 4 months back i decided to buy myself a new computer, i started by buying a new graphic card (Geforce GTX 560TI TOP), CPU (AMD Phenom II X6 1100T) and a new Power Supply (650W Cooler Master). But my motherboard was to old for the new CPU, so i bought a new motherboard aswell (M5A88-V EVO) and a computer tower (Cooler Master CM Storm Sniper Black).

My brother and my cousin helped me get everything working, when we were done my brother downloaded the bios and the drivers for the motherboard and graphic card.

I downloaded the game i bought too. (Battlefield 3) and suddently my computer just crashed with no warning. i tried to turn it on and open the game again, but the same thing happened. I was running the game once again. and checked if anything overheated.

But nothing did. My cpu wasnt even close to be hot either. A few days later i went to a Computer Store. They had a look at it. They tried to update the bios and the drivers again, they also tried to reinstall my windows(7). This been going on for 1 - 2 months, He told me to get a new harddrive, cause it was to old and broken.

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.

Hi. My computer has been crashing often (every 30 mins - 2 hrs, usually) whenever I use it, but I can do everything else normally and it runs fine. It's been like this for a long time, I think I've had this computer for 3 or so years, and It's probably been crashing for 1 and a half. I don't know a whole lot about computers, but I've tried what I could.

I even got a new video card and RAM a while back and put them in, but it continued to crash.

I tried using only one stick of RAM in each slot, like the "Crashing Consistently" thread, and switching slots (I have 2 slots each with 1 gig of RAM) but it still crashes no matter what.

I unchecked "Restart Automatically" in my settings.

I ran "sfc /purgecache", "sfc /scannow" with my Windows CD, but that did not help.



Any suggestions would be great--Me and my friends are completely stumped. If you need any info just ask, (though you may need to tell me how to get it--I still don't know a lot).

Thank you!

Does Windows give you a link to get more information? If not, I'd check for an updated driver for the wireless adapter.

Hi Ravetheinsane and welcome to TSF !

Do you get any blue error screen when the computer crashes ? Right-click my computer => properties => advanced => settings under startup and recovery => make sure that automatically restart is unticked.

Zip and attach the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump.

Random crashes with no error screen are often caused by overheating or a failing power supply. See the link in my sig and tell us about your system specs. If this is a laptop or some brand computer then brand and model will do. If it's a desktop then don't forget the brand, model and wattage of the power supply (open the computer case and the info will be on the sticker that's on the side of the power supply block).

If it's a desktop then open the computer case and make sure the fans and heatsinks are not clogged by dust. If there's dust then turn the computer off and use a can of compressed air (available at your local computer shop) to clean it.

Enter the BIOS at startup (look for some message telling you to "press xx to enter setup" right after the computer starts) and look for some hardware monitor or pc health status screen. Report the temps and voltages you'll find there.

The errors in the eventviewer will help but please focus on the errors and warnings that happen at the time of the crashes. Double-click the error, click the third button on the right once (this copies the info in the memory) then right-click => paste it... Read more

Hello,

I am relatively new to this site, and need some help. The computer I am using has a tendency to be working ok, and without warning, black-screen, and restart, only to do this again, a few minutes later. I have no idea what the hell this is, and I'm hoping it's not hardware. HELP!

A:My computer crashes!

First thing I would do would be to disable automatic restart on system failure, so the next time the system crashes you can see the error screen and hopefully identify the problem. If you do get a blue screen next time, take special note of any file name listings and STOP error codes.

Hey.

I've a very annoying issue with my computer crashing.
Mostly it's whenever I'm playing a game, so far I've been playing Call of Duty: MW2 and World of Warcraft.

It happens like this - I startup the game, and it runs fine for 2-3 mins. Then the screen just freezes, and nothing happens. I'm able to power it off and start it up again. Sometimes it even crashes while loading windows.

I had a similiar problem before I bought a new motherboard - because we could not figure out what was wrong. I upgraded the motherboard, and everything was running great for a month.

I've tried to test the RAM - but it seemed like everything were okay.
I haven't tried to test the graphic card, or the processor.

Specs:

OS: Windows 7 professional x64
MB: M2A74-AM SE
RAM: DDR2 - 2x 1Gb
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3870
CPU: AMD Phenom Quad-core 2.2 Ghz

I've updated the graphic-driver today, and I've flashed the BIOS a couple of days ago, to see if any changes appeared - nothing.

I hope you can assist.

Regards.

Or the PSU or RAM?

Well I have few suggestions for you:

1. Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, and thoroughly review your system logs to see if you can find any clue to your issues.

2. To check RAM Download memtest 4 and run atleast 8 passes.

3. To check PSU you need a multimeter; check out all the connectors

4. Also check what are the temperatures of your CPU / GPU / motherboard etc.

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?

However quite often when I run these scans whether it be my McAfee virus scan or spyware scan (e.g. AVG, Ad-Aware, Spybot etc.) my computer crashes mid-scan without warning and restarts itself. It even goes beyond scans with it crashing. While running 'disk cleanup' the computer crashes and restarts itself.

Can anyone give me any assistance?

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.

I just got a new gaming pc over a month ago and it seems to have a bunch of problems. Ever since the day I got it, I randomly receive the blue screen memory management error. I could be playing games or just on the web and this might happen causing my pc to restart.
All my game also crash to desktop way too much. Programs like steam also crash. I have tried reinstalling steam and my games but It does not work. The crashing is very random. It could happen every 5 min to a couple hours.
The past problems have been happening since day one and I encountered some new problems recently. Me and my dad opened the case while my pc was on to check that all the fans were spinning. I let him put the case cover back on and he kind of pushed it causing the front of my pc to get quickly pushed. I'm wondering if this damaged my hdd as now I notice that my hdd is kind of loud. It doesn't make clicking sounds but I can hear that its on. I used to just hear my loud fans, but now I can hear my hdd in the background. A problem that came up right after this is that sometimes when I am playing a game, the game freezes and makes a buzzing noise from speakrs causing me to have to restart my pc as I can't open task manager.
