Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 keeps crashing

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 have windows Vista Home premium 32 bit OS installed on my computer. For the past week or so, my computer has been acting really weird and running extremely slow. Firefox won't load some pages. Most sites that equire secure sign-ins take ages. Like ebay, and online bankings, HSBC etc. and then for some reason my browser goes offline out of the blue, tells me that I can't browse because the browser is working offline (happens a lot more on IE than Fiefox though, but it does happen on both).

Also sometimes firefox shuts down on its own, without any warning or an error message, when I download something, clicking on the recently downloaded programme doesn't open it, when I right click and then open the folder containing the downloaded item, even the folder doesn't open and when I try to manually open the "download" folder or sometimes even when I try to open control panel, I get a message windows explorer has stopped working and is restarting, sometimes not even the message and windows explorer just crashes on it's own without any error.

I've tried using google chome, but sometimes it just won't load pages. I click on the plus tab, and type the adress some it would load, but some it won't no matter what. the page stays blank which is weid because I've used Chrome before and when you open a new tab the page is never blank, instead it shows your previously opened pages or the history (unless you specifically tell chrom...

Im running windows 7 ultimate 64 ... I dont know totally system specs. It's a custom rig that I purchased about 6 months ago. I dont think the specs matter anyway because I don't believe this is a hadware problem, but a windows problem.

Ok,

So about a month ago I was unlucky enough to pick up a virus infection somewhere ... you know, those fake anti virus ones that totally destroy your system and leave you helpless. It started this whole chain of events that lasted two weeks and ended up with me running in safe mode for more than a week trying to fix the problem. I tried restoring my computer via system restore a few times and got an error every time - (which in turn 'damaged' my restore points so I no longer can use this option)

So, I figured I would reinstall windows and fix it. Sadly, whatever was on my comp as turned my CD drives (DVD and bruner) into dead weight - they won't read a thing. So I got Dlite and mounted the CD to a virtual drive and tried to install it that way, but for whatever reason it gives me an error and reboot and wont finish the install. It does however take me too the new log in screen, which gives me an error when I try to create a new log in for the new windows. I was able to get back into the old windows install and managed to delete the new one. Anyway .. I eventually was able to get spyware docter and a few other programs to run in safe mode and I cleaned the comp of all virus's BUT when I tried to run windows normally it would barely run at ...

Answer:Windows Explorer crashing, adobe plug in crashing.

go back to safe mode with networking and install, update, and run a full scan with malwarebytes
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer
(free version will work for this)

After that has completed and done it's work
See this link.

You really need to get a hardware cd/dvd drive.
The virtual drive is no good for what you are trying to use it for.
...Daemon tools has in and of itself been known to cause problems on some windows 7 systems.

My Windows 7 computer has recently been crashing - sometimes I get a blue screen, sometimes it just restarts. It can work for 10 hours or more without a hitch sometimes, though sometimes it crashes sooner than that. It wasn't a huge problem, but I decided to re-install my OS anyways (I deleted all the partitions, and did a fresh install) - and the problem still persists. Previously, it was perfectly stable for the previous 6+ months (or longer) that I've had Windows 7 installed. The hardware is a couple years old.

So I'm thinking it's a hardware problem, but I'm not sure what's the problem. Hard drive? Power supply? Maybe RAM?

Thanks for any help.

I've updated the BIOS and all the mobo drivers. I've replaced the RAM. I've ran AdAware, Spybot and HiJackThis.

I'm including the last 4 BSOD messages to see what all of you think I should do.

I'm running an AMD Athlon XP 2300+ on an Asus A7V8X-X motherboard. Nvidia GEForce4 MX440 video card and 1GB RAM (1-512MB, 2-256MB). Windows XP Pro with SP2.
 

Answer:Windows XP keeps crashing and crashing and crashing

Dumps 60704 and -05 both say Memory Corruption. Did you run a Memtest86+ like was suggested in your last thread? Did you switch your sticks arond in your slots? Did you test each stick individually?

Did you overclock and did you set the volatage correctly?

Dump 707-01 points to a hardware failure.

Dump 707 shows a Stop Errot of 0x74. Read carefully trhis link and the Cause.

Hi there. I am writing a post here because I am really mad. Few months ago I have bought my lenovo y50-70 4gb ram gtx960M and the problem occurs until today. The problem is, when I start to play "heavy" games ( like gta 5 or cs; go, lmao) this wonderlaptop crashes. Every time I launch a game, this lapop crashes. I can play 30 mins or 2 seconds but It ALWAYS CRASHES. Firstly, It said that nvidia driver stop responding bla bla bla. So I was searching solution in Internet. They told me to reinstall graphic drivers etc. Ok I did it. Guess what? Crash? Of course it crashes. I was very upset so I decided to update my windows. From W7 64b to W10 64b. Guess what? Ye ye, it still crashes. I turned on V-sync and It helps. Rly. Now i do not receive this annoying statement with "nvidia display stop responding bla bla bla" Now it only crashes without any errors. Sometimes with blue screen but rly rare (thx). Sound loops, image stops, and system crashes. I tried every driver, beta driver, hotfix driver, latest driver, non latest driver. JUST EVERY DRIVER. It doesnt help. I hope u will.Regards! @edit. All temps are fine. Idle 45-50 C  stress 55-65.

I had the same issue. It would crash with every game where nvidia card was used instead of intel. I tried various nvidia drivers but it didn't help. However I tried a really old driver 347.66 (not sure about the numbers after the ' . ') and it worked like a charm! No more crashes and the laptop is stable even after hours of gaming. After that I have never updated the nvidia drivers

This started happening yesterday for no reason. I start up my PC, and everything loads fine. I then launch my browser and after a few minutes of random browsing, the browser hangs, and then it grays out and I get the "program is not responding" thing, but then I try to ctrl alt delete to launch the task manager to end it, but it doesn't pop up. It takes literally like 10 minutes until the browser re-activates and then I am able to use ctrl alt delete and end it. Then, I go to restart the browser and it doesn't pop up. I constantly double click it and then it decides to work a few minutes later, resulting in multiple browsers to launch at the same time.

Sometimes when I'm not so lucky, the browser freezes and after a while THE ENTIRE COMPUTER freezes and I have no choice but to hold the button to restart it.
I restarted it in safe mode and it works completely fine after that.

For about the past 3 days now, I'm seeing System Settings Broker "stopped working" in the reliability history. Additionally, I'm seeing a lot of issues with the Windows Shell Experience Host in the event viewer. What happens is that the action center is not accessible (clicking on it does nothing), and hitting the Win key to bring up the start menu does nothing.
The following is probably the same situation I have. Just wondering if anyone here has any ideas. The support over at answers.microsoft.com is pathetic.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...401163a?page=1

Hello Forum,

I have the following issues -

1. First received the message on the computer from MS informing that we had an error - went to view details it said that we had a Error 1033. I went and pushed the button to get MS to fix this issue - but continually receive the message that I have the same problem.

2. The time that I rebooted - I noticed in place of the CPU gadgets that i have on my desktop that all MS gadgets had crashed. Again a fix did not work.

3. Internet Explorer is not working and the tabs keep crashing.

I did go onto the MS webpage and ran SFC and posting the pics from the results. I am unsure as to what other information or where to go to try and fix this issue.

I have tried everything prior to posting. I am not sure if any snips from Event Viewer may assist.

Thank you

Good day! I have a problem with my new Lenovo C200 All-in-One. FreeDOS has been installed when I turn it on at first time so I decided to install Windows 7 Pro x64. But there are many unexpected BSOD's while working in Win 7. OK, I installed Windows XP Pro instead Windows 7. It's working OK but - I can't play most of youtube movies based on Adobe Flash Player - there are 3-5 mins and "Adobe Flash Player has been crashed" :-( And there is no any dependence of browser I'm using. Same problem with: MS IE/Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome. And finally, I can't use videocalls in my Skype! Webcam is OK but when I'm trying to call using videocamera - Skype is crashing. So my question: is it hardware or software problem? What do you think about it? Thank you.

Answer:C200 All-in-One: Flash player crashing, Skype (video) crashing

hi shupike,
 
The issue that you described seems like a software problem.
 
Can you try check the following:
 
1. Make sure you're running the latest version of Adobe Flash (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer)
2. Disable adobe flash's hardware acceleration (right click on the video > choose Settings > uncheck Enable hardware accelleration.
 Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Regarding the webcam, try to install an old version of skype and install the latest camera driver below:

Presently, I’m having an issue with Chrome not loading specific content on Aweber.com, and when that same content is sometimes loaded from Firefox, it crashes both itself and Chrome, and sometimes, other programs.
 
This error also will occur sometimes if I launch Steam (SteamPowered.com) while running Chrome. Chrome will crash, as well as the Steam client. (I can only assume this is because they’re sharing something, but I don’t know what.) I know that Steam uses a type of browser internal to it so you can browse the store, interact with other users, etc.
 
Here’s what occurs most often, and how I can generally duplicate it.
 
If I go into Chrome and try to compose a new email in Aweber, it just says “Loading” and does nothing. I think this uses Flash, judging from the source code on the page. Doing this same activity in Firefox will, more often than not, crash Firefox, Chrome, and sometimes “unrelated” applications such as Spotify and Notepad++, which occurred the other day. They literally start crashing one after another, in some sort of chain reaction. Apps running in the tray (Evernote, Google Drive, etc.) are unaffected.
 
Sometimes, in Firefox, the ability to compose a new email in Aweber comes up and works flawlessly. I notice I have the most success with this after rebooting, and going right into Firefox without letting the computer run for some time.

Answer:Firefox Crashing on Specific Website, Crashing Chrome and (sometimes) Other Apps

You’re experiencing Chrome crashes due to conflicts between browser installed modules. Run the browser without loading any add-ons, disable the sandbox feature, reset your DNS settings and so on. I’m sure this will fix up Chrome crashes.
 
Clear Cache Contents and Temp Files:
1. Click Wrench, select Tools | Clear browsing data.
2. A new page would open.
3. Choose “The beginning of time” from the drop down control.
4. Make sure that all checkboxes are checked-up.
5. Click “Clear browsing data” button.
 
 
Remove Corrupt User Profile Data Files:
1. Exit Google Chrome.
2. Double click My Computer desktop icon.
3. Open below directory:
C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
4. Remove all contents from the “Default” folder.

It will sometimes crash at an insanely random time when almost nothing is running, but most of the time it will crash after I have just clicked play on a video, on the internet. (usually YahooNews or LEOAffairs.com)

Hi, I've been running on a T520 4239-CTO for a little over a year now without issue.  I've been getting lots of random bsod and services crashing in the last few days; even Windows 7 cannot validate itself anymore. I ran all the hardware checks in the provided Lenovo utilities and it all seems to pass.  I didn't trust this so I manually checked the smart values on the hard disk and noticed around 2400+ reallocated sectors so I decided to replace the hard disk. It should be noted that there are no viruses/malware on this machine.  After receiving the new hard disk I did a factory restore using the dvd backups I made when I received the machine.  Upon booting the new factory install on the new disk I'm still getting the same random bsod and issues with Windows 7 not being able to validate. I notice that everytime I boot now on the newly restored os that the "Microsoft Software Protection Platform" service has issues and cannot start.  I started doing some updates using the Thinkvantage tools and they're crashing too. This machine is currently on pass 4 of memtest without any errors so far. I've replaced the hard drive and from the looks of things so far the ram seems fine.  Where do I go from here?

Hello, as of rebooting my machine today when I boot normally into windows vista I automatically get an error that says that Windows Explorer has stopped working and I get a black screen where I can see my cursor. I can ctrl alt delete into task manager and browse to run files but can not connect to the internet, etc. The only thing I can think of is that I installed limewire and apparently along with it some additional program called hotbox or something that was some sort of movie/music program.DDS:DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 NETWORK Run by Matthew at 22:43:26.76 on Thu 08/26/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18943 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_20Microsoft?

1)open cmd as admin
2)Go to C:\Users<Insert Username>\AppData\Local\Packages\ and search name of your broken app (I will search Photos app)
3)Look at folder's name (Microsoft.Windows.Photos)
4)Now you know your app's id. Let's go back to cmd

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WRITE APP'S ID HERE).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
It will be like this

A day or so ago, my IE browser got redirected to a website, which made my Norton program start detecting viruses, trojans, and intrusion attempts left and right for a few minutes. According to Norton, all of these were blocked, quarrantined, etc... The next day, Most of the icons from my system tray were gone, and after a minute or so online, multiple windows would start popping up in my taskbar, but I can't find out what they are. Whenever I'd hover over the area (taskbar or systray) with the mouse, Windows Explorer would give me "Windows Explorer has stopped working" folowed by "Windows explorer is restarting".





I ran virus scans with Norton, Spybot, Malwarebytes, Kapersky, the list goes on. Some of the programs would find trojans and fix/remove them, but I'm still having the issues with Windows Explorer, the missing system tray icons, and the mystery windows in my taskbar. My last set of scans, online and on my software came back clean... But the problem goes on. I do have my system recovery dvd, But I haven't backed up any files... (Terrible, I know)

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.

Answer: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.

Now the problem is that a week or so ago, something happened on my pc, not entirely sure what but something happened. At the time i noticed something had happened because the colour of the task bar changed from its normal, see through-ish dark colour, to the grey basic colour. After that happened, none of my game exe's would run, they would open for a bit on a white bordered screen for some, then an error saying '***.exe has crashed'.

Hi All,

My first post here. I'm trying to fix the computer of one of my employers, and can't seem to get to the root of the problem. Windows Explorer keeps causing errors, and I am unable to, for example, save files, access the Windows directory, and more.

As well as not being able to access the Windows Directory (Unless I share it over a network, in which case networked machines can see it), we can also not get at the My Documents Directory.

The more major issue, which is why I am hoping people may be able to help, is that on a regular basis, explorer.exe causes errors, and effectively stops what you were doing. Having looked in the event log, the faulting module is avapi32.dll.

Any Suggestions extremely greatfully recieved - I'm considering a reformat, which is really not what I want to do!

I've run AVG, Spybot S&D, Spyhunter, Windows Defender, and uninstalled some suspicious looking programs. THe one that will not go is called Public Messenger ver 2.03 - various web searches suggest this may be causing problems also.

Reading through some other bits - I've just tried to update the Microsoft Script Debugger, in the hope that might help.

Whenever I Try to download anything, as soon as the download box appears, Internet Explorer Crashes, as does explorer, and everything disappears! I can download normally using firefox however - but Windows Update does not work.

I upgraded to win10 pro over the weekend and im sitting with the same problem. I thought updating my gpu drivers would solve the problem but it didn't. I deleted the old drivers and used ddu to remove all traces of the drivers and did a fresh install. I went so far as to update my ssd's firmware to see if it was maby the cause. This is sadly a deal breaker and if updates dont resolve this issue i will be forced to downgrade to win 7 again. Seriously wished that the upgrade to 10 would be a smooth one. Really disappointing since everything else seems to work .I get a blue screen with system_service_exception_wdf01000.sys when i try to lock my system using winkey+l. Still trying to solve the issue will keep you posted.

I've got Windows 8 64-bit, and it's been running fine for about 2 months now. Just today, it's started to crash the desktop every 6 seconds. The screen goes purple (which I'm pretty sure is just my chosen background colour), the outline of the taskbar remains,
but all the icons disappear, and then everything returns, only to crash again in another 6 seconds. I've watched the task manager, and under "background processes", an icon called "Windows Problem Reporting" appears for about a second,
and then goes away.
I've looked up some other people's questions about this, and most people seem to recommend checking for updates, or installing new graphics drivers, but this is not an option for me. Whenever the desktop crashes, it shuts down control panel as well. This
means I can't start my computer in safe mode, I can't check for updates, I can't uninstall/update drivers, I basically can't make any changes to my computer! Even as I'm writing this message, the cursor keeps disappearing from the test box whenever the desktop
crashes, and I have to click on the screen every 6 seconds. ARGH!

Answer:Windows 8 explorer.exe keeps crashing and I can't use Windows update as a result!

Hi,

Windows Explorer crashes are mostly caused by an incompatible Shell Extension.

please download this reg file from my SkyDrive:


http://cid-128fc518635be2dc.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/MS%20Foren/Registry/WER%5E_Explorer_full.reg

and make a double click on the file to import it. If you can't do this, run regedit.exe and import the registry file there!

When the Windows Explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service [1] creates a dmp file under C:\Localdumps. Please upload the dump file (compressed 7z or RAR to reduce the size) to your public Skydrive [2] folder and post the link here. I take a look at
the dump with the Debugger, maybe I can see which Shell extension is the cause.

After you generated the dumps, download and import this regfile:

http://cid-128fc518635be2dc.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/MS%20Foren/Registry/WER%5E_Explorer_full_uninstall.reg

to stop the dump creation.

Hello there folks!

I have had this quite annoying problem for arround three weeks now. My PC crashes
Usually when playing games, but sometimes when I am just at the desktop
I have almost concluded that the problem is one of my graphicscards.

But today, after a fresh install I finally got a Minidump file and an error code in event viewer!
(After three weeks of atleast one crash a day it was about damn time)

Don't know if the crash is related to the problem I have had, but it could.

I have this from event viewer:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff8800169f47c, 0xfffff880009b09e8, 0xfffff880009b0220). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 091112-11481-01.




And also this:

A while ago, I posted this thread asking for help with a situation that was or wasn't caused by malware. Some of these problems were that I was getting BSoDs that appeared to be caused by a different problem each time, web browsers crashing spontaneously, and Svchost.exe taking up 100% CPU in random spikes. Since I got no replies at any site I asked, and the symptoms were getting unbearable, I reformatted my computer only two days ago.

But today I've been getting some of the symptoms from before the reinstall. Earlier I had a BSoD and 2 random Firefox crashes within two hours. I was not doing anything too CPU or graphics-intensive (on Youtube and doing normal web surfing). Since I haven't even completely installed all the necessary programs and drivers [from CDs that came with my computer] yet, I am ruling out malware as a factor. I have installed graphics drivers for my GeForce 4 MX GPU, but they came with the computer, so it shouldn't have been a problem.

Things like this have never happened before, especially not right after a reinstall. Would anyone like to take a guess as to what's causing the problems? Is it possible that my hard drive is dying, since it's almost 5 years old?

EDIT: svchost high CPU usage problem recurring again... :sigh: At least this time the internet connection on Firefox doesn't stop.

Just re-installed windows 7 64bit brand new. I've noticed two times recently that after I get all bunch of windows automatic scheduled updates I had problems with rebooting as normal. To be more specifically, the screen get stuck at 15% configuring service pack..
I never had this problem before and I use the sale old Windows service Pack1 CD that I bought 2 years before. Is this some kind of update bug in the updates?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:New windows installation 64bit Windows 7 crashing at 15% configuring.

If you can obtain a windows 7 sp1 integrated iso you can use your current key with the newer disc and avoid the sp1 update altogether.

This is the approach I have taken to since xp had its first service pack. The integrated fresh installs always seemed a little faster and less resistant to future change.

We have a Dell desktop with Windows 7 that is having all sorts of issues. We currently have AVG free version and it is finding things and putting them in quarantene, but it doesn't seem to be running correctly and is hard to get in to. Most things listed are Win32 and Win64 Adware Gen. Also INI Shorcut

I have run Malwarebytes, but nothing shows up at all. I have deleted both Adaware blocker and Google Adblock because that is what Chrome said to start with. Didn't help. I was getting the Aw-Snap message. Many times it just freezes up.

What should we try next? We did lose our graphics card a while back due to lightning, followed by losing our sound a few months later. This is all new, though and I don't think it is hardware related. I am not very computer savvy though.....

So i've thoroughly scanned my computer with lots of anti-malware apps and anti-rootkits and yet the only programs that have been able to find issues are Roguekiller and aswMBR. Roguekiller reported some IPR hooks and weird registry entries, but i've heard these could be false positives. I just want to be sure if these things aren't interfering with my SSD, causing stuttering and crippling my computer's performance. The one that concerns me the most is aswMBR, it's always crashing and is not able to finish the scan, and some driver is highlighted as RED, it seems to be related to storage. Safe Mode doesn't work either. I've attached a screenshot. I've tried everything. I also had some weird tracking cookies adding themselves to google chrome after a while. I kind of fixed it by blocking them through the settings. Thanks a lot in advance.

I'm having a huge problem with my laptop computer. Windows will randomly crash and go back to the black screen that asks me to start up in safe mode or normal. Sometimes the computer will boot up and others it will just stay as a black screen. It will start up in safe mode but will also randomly crash in safe mode as well. I have tried system restore, chkdisk was fine and scanned with malware bytes and nortons with no results. Any ideas? I'm thinking windows may have went kaput or (hopefully not) a hardware problem.

Question: Windows Crashing

Hi, System reboots anytime randomly and the following screen flashes for 3-4 seconds before system reboots itself.  Please suggest how do I fix this?My laptop is under warranty.

Answer:Windows Crashing

Hi, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome ! I still cannot see your picture since it needs moderator approval, but I suspect this is due to BSOD = Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). BSOD is kind of Windows self-protection feature. If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error.What you describe could happen because of incompatible with Windows driver (most often) or because of hardware issue (rarely). In order to troubleshoot, I would need some specific information. 1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button2. Power it on.2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, keep hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one 3. Choose F2 to open System Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform System Test >> Quick test. It should check these components:    Battery check    Processor check    System board check    Hard drive SMART check    Hard drive short DST check    Memory quick check  Hopefully, tests will pass. Please, let me KNOW if they fail. Here is more info >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259#AbT1  Let me know the results.

Windows 7 crashing, Help... think it might be my power supply as it being a quad core not sure how much power i need but the power supply is a 300 watt, do i need more than that? anyway i have replaced the sata cables with better ones, but still i am getting a blue screen and errors on my desktop. nightmare, not sure how to fix it as before windows was booting up after a while now its not going past the first screen the one with advent on it. do i need to reset the bios? if so how do i do that?

Answer:Windows keeps crashing

Need more system information to tell if the power supply is enough (Make, Model Number or complete component list and all add ons like video cards, as well as anything that was changed from the original specs. etc.It probably has nothing to do with your BIOS unless you have been making adjustments or replaced the CPU without clearing the CMOS or at least resetting to defaults.If you changed any hardware you will need to update drivers.You will need to scan with your updated antivirus program AND with Malwarebytes to eliminate an infection as a possible cause.Check the internal temperatures from your BIOS to see if you have an overheating problem.Are you getting any warnings? What do the event logs say?You will need to test some hardware:Run Memtest86 to test your memory for errors.Run hard drive test utility from your hard drive mfg's website.The more information, the better we can help you. "Keeps Crashing" is not much to go by, post everything asked for as well as any test results, and we may be able to narrow it down quite a bit more for you.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

i have been experiencing a lot of crashes.. the 1st one was the day after i upgraded to PNY ram, while i was installing microsoft office sp3. after that, i have been getting crashes almost every day. i assumed the ram was the problem since it started after the new PNY ram, so i just got some Crucial Ballistix, but that didn't fix the problem.
here are some of the most common crashing places i have been having:
installing stuff, loading games/game levels, Malwarebytes' Anti-malware scanning memory.
can anyone help me?

oh and also with the pny ram, i ran memtest for 16 hours without any fails.

Answer:Windows XP Crashing

what computer do you have - brand and model or what motherboard? Exactly what ram did you get? If you take the new ram out will it run normally? If you remove the old ram and put the new ram in will it run?

Question: Windows 7 crashing

Hi guys first time posting here so sorry if i get something wrong.

But here is my problem, So basically i started up my computer this morning and as i tried to click on the start button it displayed the frozen/loading cursor so i gave it a minute to try sort itself out. After a few minutes i got the windows has stopped responding error "End Process" or cancel. This has happened 1-2 times before in the past and i just clicked end process and everything would try reload itself and it would.

this time nothing happened, I was only able to move my mouse around but not click. So i restarted the computer and it did the exact same thing again. this happened twice, Then i decided to unplug all the cables and let it sit for a few minutes. Sure enough after that it worked. Although as i was typing this thread it did it again but re-gathered itself after 2 minutes.

Here are my specs:

The machine is less than a year old.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel(r) core i7-2600k cup @ 3.40GHz
4096MB Ram
AMD Radeon HD 6800 series
ATI Display adapter

I have also left a copy of my Eventviewer in a .zip

Thanks alot for your time.

Hi all,
I have a Dell Inspiron 7737 and I have noticed that I am now getting regular crashes of Windows.
I will hear a number of "ticks" like the HD is being accessed and then my computer will restart.
It seems to happen more often if:-
a) I have a game running like EVE Online, Watch Dogs, etc
and
b) I leave the computer alone for a while
I know Windows does crash reports but I can't remember where they are stored. Can anyone help me with where they are stored in Windows please?
Also, any suggestions as to why I am now experiencing this issue would be greatly appreciated. (The laptop is still under warranty for another 7 months if it turns out to be a hardware issue.
Many thanks,
RD

Answer:Windows 8.1 Keeps Crashing

Try running is safe mode for a while. If no crashes it might be a driver problem, most probably is.
Check Device manager for errors and also check the last and previous windows update entries in case there has been a graphics driver update. If there has then try rolling back the graphics driver.

My friends PC, with XP PRO, is constantly crashing every 20 minutes to half hour. When it reboots itself,she gets the "Your system suffered a serious error" message.

AMD Athlon 2200
512MB memory
1x160gb HD
Nvidia 6600 G/C

As a footnote, her boyfriend recently dropped the tower and she was able to buy a new motherboard and use the old CPU, HD, DVD drive, memory chips. During reinstallation of XP PRO I had to change out the 512MB chip and use a friends 1GB chip because installation crashed to a blue screen of death notifying me of PTF_TABLE_CORRUPTION.

I did a disk check after finally installing XP and it picked up a load of corrupted files and deleted them.

Answer:Windows 8 keep crashing

Have you been recently told by a popup that you must install flash or some other program in order to watch a video?

The quick and dirty is to go to your device manager goto network adapters find the adapter youre using whether is wired or wireless and uninstall it..

then click action on top of device manager and click scan for hardware changes, and it will refind and reload the driver with its default settings..

If its wireless, you will need to reenter your wifi password when trying to connect..

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated."

I've got a really annoying problem in that intermittently Windows XP just freezes up CTRL-ALT-DEL does nothing none of the keys work and the mouse freezes also, all I can do to get out of it is to hold in the power button on my PC for a few seconds until it switches itself off then I have to re boot. I've been using XP since it came out and have never had a problem with crashes it's taking me back to Windows 98 days this is not good btw. I'm thinking about doing a re-install but as I have my PC setup just the way I like it and having to re-install all my programs and configurations is a bit daunting. I I have un-installed all the programs I can think of before the crashes started and I roll back my sound and video card drivers. Unfortunately I cant do a system restore as I disabled system restore.

Answer:Windows XP crashing need help

Try a repair.Boot from the XP CD (alter 1st boot device in BIOS if necess)enter setup as if you are going to reinstall XP but select R to repair.

Hey guys i signed up to this forum because I'm desperate for help. I've had this comp for the last 2 years and its never had any problem this big, but suddenly today its started crashing at random times, so often that i can't even use it. I don't know much about computers but the basic speccs are:

Windows XP x64 bit
Quad core
4gb ram
nvidia geforce 8800 gt

Sometimes it can crash while I'm still starting up the computer, but at other times i can start it up and it'll only crash when i turn on a heavy program, eg: a game.

90% of the times when it crashes, it has these strange blue dots across the screen, if thats relevant.

Oh, and also when it crashes it stops making any noises (i mean the humming-ish sounds from the comp stop). The screen just freezes, ctrl alt delete doesnt work or anything (occasionally though i can move my mouse, but clicking doesnt work).

It COULD be a virus i guess, because my anti virus expired 2 or 3 months ago and i haven't replaced it... just trying to give you guys as much info as i can.

I tried using CCleaner to clean the registry and everything, but that didn't help as far as i could see.

Please help asap guys!!

EDIT: Final note, the thing thats strangest about how it crashes when i turn on a game, is that usually i can have Limewire, Mozilla firefox and about 2 or 3 games on AT A TIME without it crashing. Now even having mozilla and 1 game on can crash it (and thats if i'm lucky).

Answer:Windows XP 64-bit crashing

The 'blue dots' phenomenon may means that it is the issue with your Graphic card.

Do you see a blue screen at any time ? If so please attach minidumps for analysis with your next post, you can find them in C:\windows\minidump. If there are multiple files please zip them together.

If there are no BSODs involved here, you can go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and to Event Viewer, check logs thoroughly to see whether something useful is being recorded for these events.

Lastly you should stress test your GPU with OCCT to determine whether it really is the culprit here. Regards

Answer:Windows 7 Keeps Crashing?

Welcome

If you think it was an update, look up when it was installed, and then use system restore from a few days before the problem. You will get the update again, but do not install this time.

You could just uninstall it, but I think you are better off with the SR, everything will go back to good times

To start off, I've found the fix to my problem. But only after spending an entire day troubleshooting my system; and considering, reading forums such as this was part of what helped me find the solution to my hair tearing day, I thought I'd share it with the rest of the world.

I have an Asus A8V-XE mobo with an AMD athlon X2 dual core 3800+, running an ATI Radeon X1650 vid card, using Gskill 512 x 2 DDR400 ram.....and an old IDE IBM deskstar 80 gig hard drive.

SO, after much anticipation of getting my new system up and running, the one game I play regularly was giving me some strange problems. I would play for anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes and my character on Neverwinter Nights would start twitching...along with every other character on the server I play on...NPC or not. The game would crash with the always happy to see ___ has encounterd problems and will be closed by windows dialog box, and 2 different bsod's popped up too; one for portcls.sys and the other for usbdriver.sys Also, background voices would repeat erratically really fast as opposed to the regular every 30 seconds or so. Sometimes it would let me play for another 10 minutes, albeit a very frustrating 10 minutes of having to endure lag death, and other times it would crash immediately.

After installing new ram, updating every driver I possibly could, monitoring cpu and vid card temps, disabling various onboard peripherals, flashing bios changing vid settings within the game ... Read more

having a few problems with my laptop.
In it's first year, it bluescreened about 4/5 times, which did not bode well.
Now, it's seriously giving me problems.
A couple of weeks ago it began to freeze up after starting up. I was unable to run anything and pressing control alt delete just brought up a message that this wasn't working. I had to use Samsung recovery to reinstall Windows 7 and that at first seemed to fix it.
However, it does still keep jamming. Not straight away on start up like before, usually, but about once a day. The odd thing is, I can leave it on all night uploading a large HD video file to youtube without issue. However, EVERY time I try to run AVG or defragment the drive, it will jam while doing this.
I have checked Task Manager while its running normally and there is no sign of anything using too much memory or acting up.

Answer:always crashing in the same Windows 7

No need to defragment drive on W7, it does it itself.
Ensure your machine is not set to automatically restart when it crashes and post the Stop Code and any drivers (filename on the bluescreen, ending .sys) mentioned in the BSOD text. http://helpdesk.wisc.edu/page.php?id=7049

I sure hope you guys can help me out I have been fighting this problem for a long time. It started off with explorer crashing whenever I use the search function. It does it almost immediately after clicking search sometimes it waits till I type something in other times it doesnt. I get an error report which I send to Microsoft and usually the second time I can search just fine occasionally it does it 2-3 times before I can search. Now another problem seems to pop up which I believe is related. Upon restarting windows once it gets to the click the user screen to login it locks up there also. Once I click the user it plays my startup music and sits there. Usually restarting it clears that problem up but I have to restart it by turning off the computer and back on. Occasionally I have to restart 2-3 times. I have run hijack this analyzed using various resources on the web and eliminated the most obvious spyware programs. I have installed spywareblaster and have been using spybot sd. I am running a AMD 64 3200 with 1 gb of ram and an ati 9800 pro 256mb. I am running windows xp. I hope someone can help me with this.

Answer:Windows 7 keeps crashing

Before Windows starts repeatedly press F8 and it should give you a menu. Choose the one that says Do not automatically restart. It should then try to boot and stop at an error screen that you can note the details and post here for us to see what has gone wrong.

Ok. My computer, started crashing randomly about 2 weeks ago.(while i play games, or sometimes when i use Internet Explorer or AIM--even with nothing else running) When i'm doing basic things (using microsoft word, checking e-mail, making this post), or when it's idle, it doesn't crash.

When i "give it a rest" (either shutting it down or leaving it idle), it seems to crash less when i get back.

I'm pretty sure I didn't delete or install anything out of the ordinary around the time it began...

I've done a few things to try to fix the problem (none of which worked): System checkups and fixes/virus scans; all results said that my computer is fine

Defragmented

Replaced my 2 old RAM sticks--a 128 and 256--with two 256 sticks. (upping it from 384 to 512)

I installed a RAM scrubber and have it scrubbing just about every minute. (This pretty much tells me its not the RAM, cause the scrubber allows me to see that i have a lot of free RAM at the time of the crashes)

I installed the latest drivers available for my card (Geforce4 MX 420)

Other than wiping my hardrive and reinstalling windows, does anyone know how I could fix my computer?

Answer:Windows XP Pro Crashing

well the software cannot tell you completely if the RAM has any problems, try using one RAM disk at a time to check if one of them makes it crash. otherwise it might be too much heat.

Lately my XP has started crashing.
When it does I can still move the move but it has the egg-timer. I cannot access any programs, including Task Manager.

When I have rebooted I noticed a few instances of wmiprvse.exe in processes.

Could this be the cause of the problem, or is it something totally different?

Hope you can help

I've been getting about 4 BSOD's a day for more than a week now. The error messages seemed random and the only common cause I could find in the Microsoft Knowledge Base was faulty RAM. So I checked my RAM quite thoroughly and right now I'm convinced that it's ok.

Running out of ideas, I figured a reinstall might do the trick. So I wiped the entire drive with Daryl's Nuke disk and reinstalled. I ran windows update as soon as the install was finished and got a lovely BSOD while downloading the first batch of updates. I got pissed, wiped the thing again and tried to reinstall. The next 2 installations died with a BSOD while "installing devices": Stop 0x24 Ntfs.sys. This was about 24 hours ago.

In the meantime I checked my hard drives (installed the os to another drive, ran seagate's checkdisk utility and chkdsk), changed my video board and removed my LAN board. Nothing seems to work though. I already have 6 BSOD's since my last reinstall a few hours ago and absolutely no ideas about what to do next.

My current system is
Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP 2
Soltek SL-DRV75 motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 1600+
768 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 200 32 Mb VRAM
Surecom EP-320X-R PCI Adapter

All minidumps from my current installation are attached.

Sometimes when i reboot my computer, i get the Blue Screen right after vista loads..

and also sometimes the resolution becomes smaller and when i try to change resolution back to how it was and choose my monitor, it makes the screen go blank again. this also happened once while i was playing a graphics intense game farcry 2 at high settings

Perhaps you don't have the correct driver. Have you tried uninstalling it and reinstalling? Can you post the BSOD, take a picture and post what it says.

I decided to reinstall windows 7 32 bit since it was long overdue and my son managed to mess up the windows. I have had the fresh install of windows on there for a few days now and it is having ridiculous problems.  It is rebooting pretty frequently out of the blue.  I'm semi- computer literate so  I dug through the event logs and tried to find the problem, but it's above my head.  There were a few things that I kept seeing.
 
Corrected hardware error occurred
Component: AMD Northbridge
Error type:28
Process ID:0
Log Name:System
Source:Whea Logger
Event ID:21
 
Seems to be what shows up with every reboot.  And I call BS on corrected error, that clearly does not mean that anything was corrected.  I can't fathom that it could possibly be an actual hardware failure considering we had no problems the day before reinstalling windows 7.  Literally the only thing that has changed here is windows.  I have searched a couple dozen google results and they are all full of idiots answering questions they don't know the answers to so here I am. 
 
I pulled up the motherboard website and downloaded all of the available files. It's the Biostar TA790GXE 128M if that matters.  On a side note, the memory seems to be running balls to the walls also since I reinstalled.

I upgraded my xp to windows 8. My pc has been crashing and internet explorer has disappeared. tried to download firefox and it crashed it. Tried using Google chrome and it kept crashing. So I restored it and IE has returned but it has started to crash again.

Answer:Windows 8 keeps crashing

You can check in the Event Viewer logs to see if there are any errors that occur at the time of the system problems you are seeing. From the Start screen, start typing Event Viewer, and select the Event Viewer icon.

Before you installed Windows 8, the Windows Upgrade assistant should have run. Did it report any incompatibilities?

If your computer is infected with malware, your Internet programs are often the first to show symptoms of having been compromised. Run full-system scans with your antivirus program. Also, check to make sure that your firewall is running.

Make sure, too, that Windows update is set to automatic. Since Windows 8 is so new, there are usually important updates arriving fairly often.

Check on the support website for your model computer, and see if any Windows 8 updated drivers are available for your PC. [If your PC is a Dell, for example, visit dell.com and go to the support pages].

Best of luck

I have a Tiny pc that is repeatedly crashing, I have checked out the hardware and can find no problem with memory, hard drive etc. The owner has reloaded windows several times from the recovery disc to have it start crashing again within one week.
I reloaded from his recovery disc after reformatting the drive and again he is having crashing/freezing problems after a couple of weeks. He has ran a virus scan and ad-aware and can find no problems.
I have suggested we reload the software without using his recovery disc as I suspect there may be an error with his disc.
Has anyone else any suggestions as to what the problem may be?

It will crash randomly from anytime from as soon as the desktop loads or up to an hour of idle time. Load doesn't seem to effect it.
I thought it was ram but I removed one of the sticks at a time and it still crashed. I've tried another graphics card and a few drivers for each. I've unplugged everything not in use such as extra drives and such and still the same result. I ran it in safe mode and it runs fine. I checked the windows event viewer and there is nothing in there when the computer would crash. I've used all the drivers that came with the motherboard disk and the graphics card disk. All the components are new. The only think I can come up with is that the motherboard doesn't like the Memory Pro ram. Can anyone help?

I am trying to get to the root of a constant crash with Windows 8.1 but am feeling fairly helpless and could use some guidance.
 
After running for a while (doesn't seem to be a set time of any sort, but longer than a half hour, at least), Windows locks up and then reboots.  It can happen while I'm on Chrome or when I'm just away from the computer (I'll hear it reboot from the next room).  I usually have a website open, so I don't know if it's related to that or not.
 
If I catch it rebooting, there is often purple artifacting on the screen beforehand, which makes me wonder about my NVidia GeForce drivers (340.43).  
 
I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro on an Asus G50V laptop with 8GB of RAM and an Intel Core Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.66Ghz/2.27Ghz.  I'm sure there's more info needed, so let me know.
 
I used to know what I was doing, but I can't even figure out which error in the Event Viewer is causing the crash.
 
Can someone guide me through a way to fix my issue?
 
Thank you in advance!

Answer:Windows 8.1 keeps crashing

Hi,
The immediate reboot seems to reduce the chance that it's heat related. This would then suggest that it may then be RAM related. The other possibility is the HDD.
I'd run the manufacturer's diagnostic utility on the HDD and then something like memtest86

Hi Guys,
 
I just got Windows 10 along with a new i7 4790k CPU. For some reason now if I leave my PC idle for more than 15 to 20 min I get a blue screen and a restart (crash). If I am running a program or a game it does fine for hours without a problem. I am running my CPU at 4Ghz and 1.300 core voltage. I also want to point out that if my core voltage is any lower than 1.300 it crashes within 10 min. Multipliers are all at 40x as well.
 
Also I have disabled sleep and hibernate to ensure that the computer is not trying to sleep in any way. It does crash if I put it to sleep too.
 
So is this a CPU issue or windows 10? 
 
Thanks for any help.

The Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular NTOSKRNL.EXE / NTKRNLMP.EXE / NTKRNLPA.EXE / NTKRPAMP.EXE) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( Windows 7 Solution Center )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds

My best guess is your video driver.

let us know if you need help

For about few weeks I am facing constant crashing to BSOD. I noticed that Windows crash when I start Google Chrome. 
Latest program I installed is new NetLimiter, but I am not sure if it could be a problem as I already had NetLimiter on PC installed before updated to latest version.
I noticed hight CPU usage 100% even I do not think it is using 100% or not showing on task manager.
I tried to do Systerm Restore, but I am getting some error completing this.

Question: Crashing Windows 7

Hi, Windows 7 Home Ed. on my Vostro laptop keeps crashing. It usually happens when close the lid, but sometimes does this when I'm on the laptop itself. Any suggestions as to what to do with this problem? Thanks and happy holidays xD
 

Answer:Crashing Windows 7

Hi,

When you say, "its crashing", what exactly happens? Blue screens, error messages?

Did you have a look in event viewer to see if you could find the cause? Right click computer and select manage and select event viewer on the left side.

Also, may be good to see your minidumps which will be located at C:/windows/minidump

Zip up the 3 most recent in their original .dmp format and attach them to your next post.

Question: Windows 7 crashing

Hi, didn't know where to put this but I have a problem, Windows 7 tends to crash at the moment I think it's something to do with winamp and the automatic scans with AVG but I'm not entirely sure. I have had times before when I've had winamp running and tried initiating a scan on a portable drive and then it would lock up and restart. I've turned automatic restarts off now but whether I'll get a code or just get stuck on a black screen I don't know. What usually happens is the screen goes black, the music gets stuck and I end up holding the power button or letting it restart itself. It's getting very annoying now, as I'm losing drawings which I spent loadsa time on but haven't saved lol.

I got a fault log from event viewer, it's different from the rest as the first two bug fix strings are not 0x0

Answer:Windows 7 crashing

Are you doing this on your laptop? If so do you have it connected up to the mains supply or are you using the laptops battery?

Question: Windows 7 crashing

A friend of mine bought a computer from NewEgg that had to be assembled (against my advise). It came from Newegg with all the parts pre picked, but not assembled.

It keeps getting the BSOD, so I have it over at my house and I'm trying to figure out why.

He knows nothing about computers (which is why I didn't want him to buy one needing assembly). I assembled it at his house, but then it started having problems. I emailed him possible solutions, but he couldn't figure out how to fix it because he couldn't understand my instructions. He said it would get the BSOD every 30-60 minutes on average. I got the computer at my house, and assumed the problem was a motherboard driver, so the first thing I did was update that. It has since got the BSOD twice in 24 hours, so its not as bad, but still not functioning 100%.

Here is what the BSOD says:

All drivers are up to date

The processor is a Phenom 9600B

The motherboard is a M2N68- AMPLUS Motherboard.

Onboard video and sound.
 

Answer:Windows 7 crashing

seems like something with the CPU.
overclocked? or overheating?
maybe try underclocking it to see if it stops BSOD

How old is the hard drive, and have you done any hardware diagnostics?
