Preferred Solution: Occasional unexpected reboots

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi

A tricky one for my first post. Using a Dell Inspiron 530 running XP Pro SP2. various unexpected reboots and BSODs, but will focus on one specific BSOD which occurred on July 25.

Having followed instructions elsewhere on Bleepingcomputer, I offer the enclosed output from MS Windows Debugger:

A:Unexpected Reboots, And Occasional Bsods

Thanks for the dump file, it'll help in narrowing down things. The crash occurred in win32k.sys - a core Windows system file. Although this is where the crash occurred, it's not necessarily the reason for the crash.The parameter c0000005 indicates that the crash occurred due to a memory operation. The actual operation was that it was told to access a memory location that did not exist.The process name that it's associated with is spoolsv.exe. This is the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service and is another critical part of the OS.So, in short, there's a problem with a driver accessing memory that doesn't exist and the print spooler is involved in this. So, I'd suggest uninstalling your printer to see if the BSOD events stop. If they do, then download a new copy of your printer driver from the manufacturer's website and install that.If they don't stop, then it's likely that either remnants of the driver remain (and are causing the BSOD) and need to be removed or that there's a corruption in the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service. If the latter, then we may have to resort to SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install to correct it.Another option is to enable Driver Verifier (without uninstalling anything), and see if it'll force a BSOD which names the driver (you'd have to perform an analysis of the BSOD event to locate it). To enable Driver Verifier, use this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617Two important points when usi... Read more

Hey folks... so I am hoping someone can help me troubleshoot an issue I am having with my son's pc.

It's a Windows 10 machine. 16GB Ram. AMD Ryzen 5 processor (dont know specifically which off the top of my head). 1TB Western Digital HD. Nvidia 1050 graphics card.

He recently purchased a small keyboard to hook up to his PC so he could make music. He wasn't having issues until he installed the drivers for that item and a program called Ilok License Manager which would apparently allow him to transfer his product license to various computers. (I imagine this is something music creators do when they go studio to studio or something)

Now his PC reboots on its own about every 20 minutes. It also Blue Screens occasionally, but not every time it reboots.

I have only helped him troubleshoot the problem over the phone and we didn't have luck fixing the issue. I have since gotten the PC from him and will be able to physically troubleshoot it later today, but I wanted to reach out to people smarter than I to see if we can get to the bottom of the issue.

What has been done so far:

1. Booted into safe mode. The computer was stable in safe mode for over an hour which, obviously, tracks with the fact that this is probably a software issue connected to either the drivers for the keyboard unit, or the Ilok program.

2. While in safe mode he uninstalled the drivers for the keyboard through control panel

3. In safe mode he tried to uninstall Ilok, but it didn't s... Read more

Hello. I've been having strange issues with my media center PC. I've never seen the machine restart since it is mainly a server and is headless. I'm not sure if it "Bluescreens" every time, but occasionally it will create a dump file that I can open in BlueScreenView.

I have been trying to see if somebody else has already posted a problem like mine but my system won't stay up long enough for me to get to the end of reading posts. And that's the problem. My system keeps spontaneously rebooting. Here is what I have tried, based on things I have managed to read between reboots.

I got MEMTEST86 and let it run for about 7 hours. No errors.

I tried to localize the problem to a USB port. This system has 8 USB ports total. There's 2 USB ports on the front of the machine, which I have used every so often when I am loading new music onto my iPod. But usually these ports are not in use. The last time I did use them was several months ago. The back of the machine has 2 banks of USB ports, one bank of 4 ports and one bank of 2 ports. Normally, my USB keyboard is plugged into a slot in the bank-of-4. But in my attempt to determine whether the USB ports are the problem, I went into the BIOS and disabled both banks I was not using. Thus if I was using a port in the bank-of-4 but a port in the bank-of-2 was throwing errors, I eliminated that possibility by disabling the bank-of-2 in the BIOS. Similarly, when I had the keyboard plugged into the bank-of-2 in the back of the machine, I had the bank-of-4 disabled in the BIOS. The cable for the keyboard won't reach to the front of the machine, so I've had that bank disabled for all of this. In any case, I continued to get reboots no matter where I plugged in my keyboard. I conclude that this e... Read more

I'm not sure if anyone else has posted, but both my step-dad and I are having the same issues with both our computers.

He bought a new computer, and I'm 99.99% sure that none of his hardware or software has any conflicts or any issues.

I have my copmuter, which i've upgraded over a period of time, and its pretty decent. I recently upgraded to Gigabyte's ATi Radeon HD5870 1GBDDR5 video card, and even more recently upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit.

His computer is Windows 7 as well, and he recently bought two Gigabyte ATi Radeon HD5870 1GBDDR5 video cards and ran them in Xfire.

Now we both seem to have nice and speedy computers, nothing seems wrong, until we try to go on Youtube to watch a video( when we actually try to play the video, not actually just being on the site itself). Or , in his case, try to watch a Blu Ray disc with his computer ( he's got a blu ray player)

We occasionally got the BSOD, but generally we just blackscreened and it rebooted itself. =S

So I want to know if anyone else is having this issue? I've updated the drivers to the latest to date and all that shizzle, but my guess is that the 5870's have comp. issues with Windows7?

Hi

Recently, my laptop has been randomly restarting and sometimes even while starting windows logon. At other times, it will freeze and look like this

I ran CHKDSK with all attributes selected and it detected no problems. I ran Windows Memory recovery tool with extended scan and the system booted before it could complete.

The restarts started happening more frequently and now the computer is completely unusable.

I have not installed anything recently that I think may be related to the problem. Any recent software was running fine before this started happening.

I am running in safe mode with networking now and it is not happening. I have not installed windows update KB2823324 from April or
KB2982791
KB2970228
KB2975719
KB2975331
from August. I have read that these cause restart problems on some machines and have followed up on them.
I have been playing a game recently which would make my laptop shut down due to overheating sometimes. I hope it hasn't damaged my hardware. How do I determine that? Any advice on my next step to find the problem? How to I systematically activate various hardware functions like my graphics and sound? Specs are below...

Hi guys.

I'm having a problem that I don't know what could be the reason for it.

specs:
cpu Intel i5 2500K 3.30GHz
board Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3
ram 4x2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 G-Skill
gpu Geforce GTX 970
drives SDD 250GB Crucial MX100+HDD 1TB Samsung HD103SJ
psu Corsair TX 750W v2
OS Win10 64bits
(besides the gpu and sdd of maybe 1 year old.. everything has 4 to 5 years)

Here's the situation:
Sometimes (pretty much every single day now..) mainly when I'm playing something a bit heavy (e.g Paragon) but also happens when I'm just browsing the web.. my monitor suddenly goes black. Sometimes after a few secs it turns back on with the message "Graphic kernel driver stopped responding and recovered etc" and I can go on with my life (but sometimes it still happens again..).
Other times.. the screen keeps black and the only thing I can do is to power off and on my desktop.
And other times.. is goes black and after a few secs my desktop reboots and displays the message that my CPU has overheated.
Only yesterday I also noticed that if a hit the case with my knee.. the screen goes black and displays the driver message (don't know if it was just a coincidence.. because there was a delay between my knee hitting the case and the screen going off).

At first I thought it was because if the graphic driver (have been reading forums with people complaining about nvidia latest drivers). So I used DDU tool to completely uninstall the drivers and eliminate all traces.. ... Read more

I recently purchased an Acer 5740G notebook computer. Windows 7 Home Premium was pre-installed.After only a few weeks of use the machine began to spontaneously reboot. Sometimes this can occur three or more times at intervals of less than 30 minutes and sometimes it can run for more than a day without any observable problem.I have run a thorough chkdsk on the hard drive, run sfc /scannow and five passes of Memtest-86 v3.5. All of these showed no errors or violations. I have also regularly run "Advanced System Care Professional" and "CC Cleaner" (amongst others) to check and repair registry errors, application paths, etc. I can't see any correlation with any application or process. It can happen in the middle of anything I am doing, or when the computer is idle.Below is a copy of the "Hijack This" log and I wonder of it gives any indication of a system or software problem.

For about a week now something strange occasionally happens while I'm using my computer. It suddenly shuts down and reboots completely on it's own.
When it reboots its shows the "Windows was not shut down properly" screen with the "Start windows normally" choice highlighted. I do so and I'm back in business. But I never know when it's going to happen again. Today was the third time during the period I described.
Any idea what's causing these unexpected reboots?
 

A:Unexpected reboots

What version of Windows are you using ? That sounds like a recent version of Windows, like 8 or 10. But you posted in the DOS / other forum? DOS predates Windows 1.0.

Try going into Control Panel > Device Manager and see if there are any yellow icons. If so, see what the error messages says in it's Properties. And try to right click Update the driver.

About once a day my screen suddenly goes black and the computer commences a reboot. I can find no common factor in either what I'm doing at the time or how long the computer has been running; it seems to happen at completely random times. I don't think it is an overheating problem as it has done it, though rarely, soon after the initial boot up. It has never done it twice in a session, even when I've been working for several hours. To my knowledge I don't have any programs that do updates followed by reboots except those that remind me beforehand. I've had the problem for several weeks. Any suggestions please?

A:Unexpected Reboots[moved from xp]

Hi whizzkid3

I'll let the malware-experts in the Security forums give you their feedback on the log, they have more experience in HJT logs (they'll give their feedback in your thread over there). I don't see anything at first glance.

Once you get a clean-bill of health from our Security experts:

Try changing a setting: right-click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced", and in the "Startup & Recovery" section - click on "Settings", then in the "System Failure" section - remove the checkmark from the box "Automatically Restart". If a fatal STOP error is occurring, this will let you see it. Copy it down & post it here.

Also check in your Event logs for errors that coincide with the restarts. Go to the Event Viewer to view the logs - it's in the "Administrative Tools" in the Control Panel (in "Performance and Maintenance" if you have Control Panel set to the category view). To view the details of an Event - right-click it and select "Properties".

Best of luck
. . . Gary

Friends,

First of all, thanks for being here to offer advice. This problem has been driving me crazy.

About two months ago, my relatively new W7 x64 machine started rebooting without warning. Lately the problem has escalated slightly in that it's also occasionally throwing BSODs, though not all that frequently. Please see the .zip file for all the sordid details. The reboots are the really annoying thing: they seem to have become more frequent recently and can happen three or four times a day now. Sometimes they'll even happen if the login screen isn't touched for ten or fifteen minutes after boot-up.

I started investigating this problem by looking at the minidumps and trying to isolate and remove the more obvious possibilities: a rather elderly Wacom tablet (now uninstalled, though it never caused any trouble before November), a new Lexmark printer (which was added to the system in November, also now uninstalled). The uninstallations have made no difference to the reboots, which continue to happen at unpredictable intervals.

The system is a custom build from Scan in the UK, delivered to me at the end of July '10. The processor is an Intel Core i3 530 2.93Ghz (overclocked to I think 6 Ghz.) on a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H motherboard with 4G of CMX memory, Artic Freezer Pro and Akasa Amberfans. There are two Samsung HDs (500G system drive and 1 T storage drive) and two Optiarc DVDs: everything's in an Antec 300 case with a Corsair 650W PSU. Display adapter is an ATI Radeon HD ... Read more

I m having trouble diagnosing a problem.
Im using a 3d program on XP. I was experiencing hangups and crashes and when rendering a frame sequence the computer would crash to desktop or sometimes reboot itself or sometimes just say completed when it wasnt done all the frames. IF any ones knows about 3d rendering then you will know that each frame is rendered seperately to make a sequence of completed frames with the color, texture and lighting baked into a single image frame.

I have a feeling it is hardware but it may also be software. or a combination of both.I think it may be hardware because even in WoRD i was having weird things happen like when i went to paste and copy an image to make labels it was pasting the copied image into the cell but it was appearing as a white box only. but if I saved and restarted the program it would then show the correct image file in full color. As soon as I tried to copy and paste the image again it would do a couple correctly but then it would paste these white blank boxes and I would have to restart the program to see them correctly.????weird i know

I have reinstalled the OS to win2000 and that seemed to fixed the hangups and freezes so far when working in the 3D program. But when rendering it rebooted once so far before it was done the sequence. I have turned off the system failure option to reboot when there is a system failure and so far when testing it doesn reboot itself but it will say my render is completed before it gets alll of t...

Hi,
I have no idea what is going wrong.
The model is an Acer Aspire One netbook (10.1 D270).

After a few minutes, it just reboots. This happened recently.

How can I diagnose the problem?

I can see nothing strange in eventvwr.

I would like to try some diagnosis before I try the shotgun trial-and-error approach (system restore, reinstall windows, change hardware).

memory diagnostic and disk checking (the tools that run with a restart) returned no errors.

Any suggestions?

I understand that I haven't provided much info, but I'm not sure what to provide.

There is no BSOD.

I don't believe a minidump is created either.

Temperature is within expected bounds (no higher than 45)

Also happens in safe mode.

Also, the RAM is not original, I'll try replacing the original chip.

If it turns out to be the RAM, what tool/s should I use to verify its integrity?
Also, there is no CD drive. So I need a USB boot utility if anything but the standard windows test (which I ran only with default settings).

I can't believe that this kind of service exists for free... You must be a very generous group of people!!

I am using a Sony VAIO (VGN-NR498E), with Vista SP1, and Kaspersky Internet Security. KIS has not detected any malware today, although a few days ago, utorrent.exe was identified as "Trojan.generic," and I uninstalled and deleted the file. Additionally, my online banking password was changed last night (There is a small chance that I just forgot what it was, since I've been changing all of my passwords lately.. but I don't believe that is the case). I have only had this loptop for a couple weeks. I got it because my last one was infected with something and I couldn't even start Windows, within only 2 days of it beginning to act funny (I suspected a keylogger)..

My computer is randomly rebooting and I'm getting random error messages saying something has shut down unexpectedly. Sometimes when the computer reboots I get a message telling me "Windows has recovered from a serious error". The last time it did this when the machine rebooted it came up to Check Disk and ran a scan, which found nothing.

I've scanned with MSE, MBAM and SAS. I have a complete ghost of the system from the 30th of December 2010.

This machine was recently cleaned with help from y'all but it still seems to be a little flaky.

Here's the link to the last thread on this machine;

Hello, Im new to theese forums, but I bumbed in here while driving down on the google highway, searching answers for my problem.

So, here is the story of my past week.
I decided to update my old computer a bit and ended up buying a SSD for OS, new mobo, new DDR and a new case.
I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit on the SSD and formatted the old partition that was for the Windows installation.
There we no errors during the install.
Now during gaming or running BOINC, my PC just reboots, no BSOD or anything, like complete powercut and restart.
This leaves no error message to the event messages, except for an error that Windows was shut down unexpected.
Ive tried a whole lot of tips and tricks.
One interesting thing was that the computer had restarted while running memtest86+ in Windows, I wasnt at my computer while it had happened, so I do not know if it said anything.
Ive completed Disk Check before Windows boot, Ive done sfc /scannow and it completed 100%.
Ive upgraded my BIOS to the ASUS Latest, NVidia drivers updated aswell, ive returned the stocksettings for BIOS, made sure that there is nothing there to OC it automatically.
Seems like something happens during load usually.
Atm my computer is running memtest86+ v4.2 USB Boot, gonna make sure if its the memory problem.
During the test, Id like to hear if anyone has any ideas on what to test next if the memtest doesnt bring up any problems.
Thanks beforehand,

This started 2 days ago and has happened 5 times since then.  There have been no warnings/errors/BSOD, just random shut down as if it was an unplugged desktop (laptop with full charged battery).  After crash, reboots to options of safe mode as system did not shut down properly.
 
The specifics: 
 
This is a Dell Inspiron 5737, only 7 months old
 
OS is Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
 
Everything is updated
 
I have run all system diagnostic utilities available, including CHKDSK, with no errors reported and no issues anywhere
 
Dell tech support lied to me yesterday and told me they fixed it by unchecking the "Automatically Restart" box under "Startup and Recovery" and telling me it was an issue with a windows update that caused the crashes, yet the same thing happened again this morning, so apparently they didn't fix anything and just installed a couple of Dell optimization programs, each triggered AVG warnings and have since been removed.
 
If anyone can tell me what is going on here and how I can remedy this problem I would greatly appreciate it.
 
Thanks...

Hi

My problems began a while back and I thought I had beaten them but maybe I didn't clean everything as well as I thought.

I frequently run low on hard disk memory on the partition where my OP is located and I have been moving things around between disks to free up space. The PC is often slow and I have presumed that this is a memory problem, however I'm often in the middle of running a program (especially Ad-Aware and Spybot) when the machine reboots spontaneously. I had to run GMER 8-9 times before I got a log.

So herewith my files as instructed:

A:Low memory, slow, frequent unexpected reboots and suspicions that I have a trojan

Hello Snowflake101,

I'm not seeing anything in your logs. If you still require assistance, run this online scan to search for any remnants. It can take some time, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course:

**Vista users - right click on the IE icon and run as administrator

Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/par...avwebscan.html

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.


2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:Close any open programs
Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

3. Click Run at the Security prompt. The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database. Please be patient as this can take several minutes.Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
Click View scan report at the bottom.

Hello,

I just built a computer yesterday using a Coolermaster Haf 912 case, Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, AMD Phenom II quad core 955, Crucial Ballistix 4 Gb, WD 1 Tb Scorpio blue hard drive, Cool max 700 watt PSU, DVD drive and Windows 7.

It keeps rebooting and or blue screening. I can't even have it on long enough to download updates and try to update drivers before it crashes. I checked the bios temps and they are 34c and 41c. DDR3 memory is running at 1.5v. I tried reinstalling 7 and the same issues.

It will stay on in safe mode and I also got a Ultimate Boot CD 2010 from a friend and it stays on when I ran that. I don't know too much about the disc so I ran a memtest and it passed. I ran a quick test on the WD diagnostic and that was ok.

Thanks for help in advance.

I'm having an extremely weird vista startup error.
I just built my computer about a month ago and installed Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP-1. It took me about 15 tries, but I finally got vista installed. I updated the drivers for the graphics card and sound card, installed Norton Internet Security 2008 and Supreme Commander: FA, and it started doing this weird restarting stuff.

Once booted up, my computer runs fine. It runs Supcom: FA perfectly at all max settings with no slowdown and has never crashed once. This makes me think it is not a hardware issue.

Here's where the problems start. Every time I turn on my computer, the graphics card cycles the fan high, then low, high, then low eight times before it boots. It didn't do that before. I want to fix that because it takes a long time and the noise is annoying.
Once it boots up, I get the "Windows Error Recovery" screen and if I select "start normally," it starts to boot (green loading bar) then gives me a bluescreen for ~1/4 second (too fast to read or get a pic of) then reboots.
I get the "Windows Error Recovery" screen again and select "use previous settings" and it will sometimes start normally, other times I have to repeat this process. Every time I start normally, it crashes and reboots. Once it's booted, it works fine.

I tried booting off the install DVD and running "Repair My Computer"

I have an older Dell Inspiron. I think I bought it in 2008. It had Windows Vista originally and I upgraded to Windows 7 in 2013.
Recently, when I click to shut down, it will go to a blue DOS looking screen and then reboot. A message will pop up saying something like "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown." It's a pain because I have to wait until it finishes rebooting and then shut it down again.

To clarify, it doesn't do this every time; maybe once out of every 10 or 12 shutdowns. Usually it shuts down normal. It seems to do the "unexpected shutdown" reboot thing when I'm in a hurry.

Any help is appreciated.

Lately I have been suffering occasional hic-ups while playing games. At first it didn't annoy me so much but in Battlefield 2142 I constantly get thrown of servers when enduring such hic-up.

The problem is that while playing a game (NFS:MW, CSS, BF2142, WOW, ..) the pc suddenly freezes and the sound constantly repeats itself. This usually goes on for about 30seconds (roughly guessed). The funny thing is, this only happens once during the entire game. I never know when my pc will freeze for 30seconds, but once it's over it doesn't come back unless I shut the game down and start it up again or when I play another game.

Things I've tested:
- I have installed different drivers but the problem still occurs
- My DirectX is fully up to date
- I cleaned my entire computer (meaning I removed the dust inside of it)
- Cleaned my harddrives (as in remove useless crap and broken registery keys), and also defragmented my main harddrive

Hi,

I'm not completely sure if i've been infected with a google redirect virus, but occasionally I will be redirected from a google search somewhere else. This happens once every few days or so, so I'm assuming that I am infected.

I did a google search on "google redirect" and got to the following page, which had a recommended fix:

http://www.personalcomputerfixes.com/spyware/how-to-remove-the-google-redirect-virus/

it suggested running combofix, which I did, but it never got past the message "scanning, can take up to 10 minutes, or easily double that if heavily infected". No stage numbers appeared. I let it go for well past 20 minutes.

After a while, i just rebooted the computer. Then I started seeing advice online about not trying to use combofix as a new user. oops.

Question: is there a possibility i screwed up something by interrupting combofix, which seemed to have stalled out?

Next question: am I possibly infected, and can you help?

Thanks.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (possibly directx).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Hey, I was hoping I could get some help from multiple sources. I had left a message with the people who make Avatar computers, but was hoping for a quicker response from here considering my computer is also Windows 8 with NVIDIA graphics.
I've recently been having random freeze problems. This started about a month, month and a half ago. It does not occur every day, but every so often I will either be in-game (Team Fortress 2 or Guild Wars 2) or exiting a game and my desktop will completely freeze. I cannot access my Task Manager or Alt-F4 out. It comes down to having to having to press the power button and wait a few seconds for it to restart normally.
This also happened while I had Steam Friends List open along with Skype. I walked away for a few minutes and as soon as I got back everything would be unresponsive and freeze.
It happened again today when exiting Mass Effect. Everything froze up and upon trying to restart the computer would not cooperate for an hour and a half/two hours. My brother fidgeted with it a little to try and run the System Recovery disk for Avatar/Windows 8 and the computer kept complaining it was not the right disk. I really don't understand why my computer has been doing this unless it's a problem with the graphics card maybe, or the manufacturer.
I got this computer back in June of this year and only recently has it been doing this.
I was just hoping I could get a little more advise/help here while I wait for a phone call back from Avatar.

Motherboard: Intel 965GM or 960GL
Power Supply: 6-cell (47 Wh), 65 W adapter

I've attached the Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 folder. I couldn't run the System Health Report, I received an error message, that the system couldn't find the given access path.
The Memtest 86+ and Seatools for Dos haven't found any problems with the memory and with the hard drives, respectively.

Thank you for your help in advance,

A:Occasional BSODs

You have a lot of Intel drivers on your system. Instead of listing each separate one, I would like for you to run the Intel driver update utility found here - http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support...t/?iid=dc_iduu - and install any updates that it finds.

Run these tests and report back the results
1. Memtest86 - Run for 7-8 passes - RAM - RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Forums
2. Prime95 - Run all three tests for 3-4 hours each or until fail - CPU - Stress Test with Prime95 - Windows 7 Forums
3. Hard drive scan using SeaTools - Both long and short tests
