Okay so making a very Freezing Related?) Computer (Hardware long story short my computer keeps freezing up and crashing down on me First and foremost specs HP A N Windows XP Pro SP MB PC sticks GB HDD AMD I upgraded the memory to GB today hence the sticks What s been happening to me lately is that whenever I open up ANY application I will not be able to open another one without my computer stalling For example I tried to uninstall my belkin utility and it froze up Computer Freezing (Hardware Related?) at Then I tried to close it and nothing happened Tried to open up other applications and couldnt Tried to CTRL ALT DEL couldnt I can still Computer Freezing (Hardware Related?) move the mouse but it disappears on the desktop and reappears elsewhere on the screen taskbar etc So then all I can do is reboot I checked crucial com to make sure I didnt need to have matching sticks for memory One is PC one is PC From what I understand the stick would clock itself down to speed correct If thats not the case then would the mixup in the pairs cause my machine to hang or would that be an issue that I would recognize via BSOD or something Could it possibly be the hard drive I ve ran PCCheck and CHKDSK and both have shown clean results I would restore my machine BUT I forgot the administrator password Any way for me to find that out I heard there was some way on XP but Im not too sure I will say that I have not experienced any type of a blue screen or any type of virus spyware issue I feel the case is hardware related any ideas Thanks guys --Dan nbsp

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Considering that I had this issue on both WinXP64/Kubuntu when I ran them, and Windows 7 now, I am fairly confident that it's not a software problem. My computer locks up, entirely, without any warning. I've caught it freezing half way through opening a window before, leaving the edges un-antialiased... It's a pretty sudden lockup. I'm wondering whether this is an HDD issue, or whether it's the fact I'm running an AMD X3 720 BE with the fourth core unlocked - either way, how would I go about stopping this? At the moment, it's annoying. When I start to work in a weeks time, it will be disastrous.

I just successfully built a mild gaming computer that is working great except for one strange issue.When I go to shut down the computer through Windows XP,it will shut down as normal,but the computer itself wont shut off.The screen just goes blank and the system remains on.I have to press and hold the power button for a few seconds to shut it off.

I don't see anything in Windows power options or the BIOS's power management section that could be relevant to this.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hey guys, theres something wrong with my pc and i don't know what it is. When i press the power button the pc starts its cycle but nothing is displayed on scren, this continues for about 10 seconds and the in restarts and the second time it boots (nothing displayed) it hangs in cycle endlessly. I swaped out graphics cards and thats wasn't the case nor was it the ram. I doubt its the processor. I'm left to believe its either the mobo or the harddrive, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys
 

A:Computer fails boot (hardware related)

Disconnect everything except the video, memory and graphics. If it still gives no display, you have a bad board, bad CPU, bad graphics card, or bad memory. If you have more than one memory chip, try them one at a time. If it still doesn't work, try another video card. Then you're down to CPU and board.

I am running Windows bit Yesterday my laptop froze and would not unfreeze I eventually used the power button to restart it Since then my computer has been freezing in this manner a few minutes after starting Seems related to Chrome freezing startup. Computer after minutes up Computer freezing minutes after startup. Seems related to Chrome Programs that I was running during the original failure are VLC utorrent Chrome and possibly Medieval Total War also there are likely others that I do not generally interact with running in the background I have noticed that whenever I launch Chrome now consistent after reinstalling it causes the computer to freeze up like this upon launching I have never had any similar problems with this computer before Computer freezing minutes after startup. Seems related to Chrome and have been using all these programs without problems for awhile Sadly I have no restore points I'm all for any solution that involves never using any of these again however I am at the point where formatting is looking like the only solution This is very undesirable as I do not have a working recovery partition hasn't worked since adding an ubuntu partition nor do I have a Windows disc as this came pre-installed with no CD I was under the impression that this could be malware related but so far my scans turn up nothing although they cannot fully complete before the computer fails as it does I tried AVG spyware doctor and adaware but only spyware doctor gets anywhere near finishing Anything I can do Anyone seen anything similar

for a quick scan use malwarebytes the quick scan takes only about 15 minutes,

you can also use it in safe mode.

A:Computer freezing watching videos online, possibly CPU-related

Update:
I realized that I gave a poor first description, the monitors don't turn black, they display what was previously displayed when the freeze occurs.

And the sort of cut off buzzing sound is simply from power getting cut to all devices, including mouse and keyboard not getting any power.

I also forgot to mention that I've tried running chkdsk, found no issues.

I'm gonna try running Accessible Event Watcher from the Windows SDK in order to see if I can identify anything suspect occuring when the freeze occurs. I'll check the normal Event Viewer to see anything for reference when it occurs again.

Otherwise, maybe this belongs in the Motherboards, Bios & CPU-section? If I had to guess, this is starting to feel like it is related to the PSU or the motherboard acting up.

Hi All I have recently upgraded my pc from AMD to Intel However since doing so I have experienced freezing of my PC sometimes it turns itself off and other times it just freezes This usually happens after about mins I have the latest bios and drivers installed from the relevant websites I have tried reinstalling windows to no avail However the one time it hasn't frozen I managed to run AIDA for an hour with CPU temp maxing at C therefore I don't believe my CPU is overheating however after an hour I decided to stop this test in the hope that I could hardware Computer freezing after upgrade run another however my PC froze straight after stopping the test which is odd Here are my specs Motherboard Msi x sli plus CPU Intel i k OEM RAM Crucial ballistic sport DDR x GB STICK MHz running at MHz due to Computer freezing after hardware upgrade single channel GPU XFX R X PSU corsair hx Boot drive Sandisk GB SSD The only thing I could think of would be only having one Computer freezing after hardware upgrade stick of ram which is therefore running in single channel at MHz I will post Aida screenshots when I finish work Anything that you think will help let me know I will post it Thanks

A:Computer freezing after hardware upgrade

1.  Open the case and make sure the heatsink is securely attached to the processor.  If not sure, reattach it.
2.  Remove and reinsert the RAM.  
3.  Try different RAM.  The stick could be bad or (strangely) incompatible. 2400 MT/s is over clocked.  You could try 2133 MT/s DDR4 if you have any on hand.  Also, After testing, DDR4 is faster with 4 sticks of RAM. 
4.  Check the SATA cable connection to the hard drive.  (Or test the machine without the hard drive attached to rule it out). 
 
 
 
(I googled the motherboard.  The memory is supported if it is: MSI X99S XPOWER AC LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99.)

About 6 months ago the screen started freezing. Then after about 30 seconds a message would appear on screen.... 'No Signal'

Would switch off and restart after a short pause and most times PC would run OK. The problem is random and happens in any app. The PC can operate OK for several hours without a problem.Or it may happen within a few minutes of startup.

As I thought that it was most likely related to the Win 7 software. I upgraded to Win 10.. 2 days ago, without any problems and the desktop seemed to run faster.

However the same problem is occurring again. Could this be a hardware problem?

With Win 10 there is no message about the unexpected shutdown ,when rebooting
 

A:Computer Freezing with win7 and win10..hardware or software?

It could be hardware related but not guaranteed, if you had done a completely clean installation of Windows 10 rather than an upgrade it could help to confirm that or not.

However, lets see what we can find out

Firstly, please provide details of the PC in question. Is it a prebuilt system like a HP, Dell etc if so please provide the exact make and model (include the 7 digit Dell Service Tag if its a Dell).
If its a self / custom build please provide exact make and model of the motherboard, CPU, RAM, graphics card, power supply, hard drives etc. the more info the better.

A:Computer Freezing for a short time (Hardware Fault)

Identical problem here.. hard drive light goes solid and pc just stops for 1 min, still able to move the mouse cursor but cannot slect anything or alt-tab etc. Any alt tab or double clicking is cached up and then all fired off at once when the minute freeze is up.

I'm pretty certain now it's down to my Asus P5K-E motherboard (which is what I assume the original poster has)

I'm looking towards M/Board now as I have swapped drives and changed CPU from Q6600 to Q8200 also switched from Vista 32bit to Win7 64bit and still get the issue.

I alleviated it for a while by switching my SATA 300 drive down to 150 mode by setting the jumpers.

Have flashed the P5K to the latest bios with no joy.

Full specs are..
Q8200 Quad
Asus P5K-E Wifi Premium
500GB Samsung SATA300
4GB Ram
lightscribe 20x DVDRW
Sony Bluray Drive (installed after problem had already appeared)
2 x ATI HD3870's in crossfire config.

then run in compatability mode of windows 98.
this should stop it from closing

i used windows 2000 for aout a week then decided it sucks and went to windows xp.

No BSOD info in the upload, or in the MSINFO32 file.
Please follow these directions to capture the memory dumps:

Quote:




Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service (not RapidShare as the analysts usually can't download from it) - then post the link to it.
Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): http://www.carrona.org/setmini.html

A:bsod related to hardware??

Well got no idea what all that stuff means, but you need to find a way of isolating the problem, so start by removing/disconnecting unessential components, such as the Optical drive, secondary HDDs and any extra memory modules (you only need one).
Then if you have more than one memory module try them out one by one and see if it helps.

If you still have a problem, swap out the PSU for one you know works. If you still have problems then its time to really get your hands dirty and do the following:

1.remove the components from the case and lay them on a flat non metallic surface.
2. make sure you are still only using the essential components: Motherboard, processor, 1 stick of memory, HDD and PSU.
3. Switch on the machine by shorting out the power switch pins on the motherboard.
4. Swap out the remaining components 1 at a time until the problem stops. You will already have eliminated the PSU and memory at this point, so try the HDD and processor next, if its still a problem then its almost cirtainly your motherboard.

If you need any help swapping out parts and assembling/disassembling the PC see the animations on my site here: www.pcityourself.com/building

Hi guys,

I need some short and straight-forward answers for these question at this step.
Thank you all very much in advance for the answers. :

1- How is a bit stored on RAM or HDD? I mean, there should be some units like a box to be used for storing a bit whether that bit is 1 or 0. If so, what is the name of such boxes? Are they named flip-flop?

2- How is a virtual CPU used and what is the hyper-threading?

3-What is a cache? What is its levels for (L1, L2, L3)? Is a cache visible? Can CPUs work without a cache? And how do I be able to see the memory size of my computer?s CPU cache?

4- Do ROMs exist nowadays? If not, what instead of them?

5- Is there something named ?Flash Dish??! (I haven't heard this!)

6- What is a cluster in a HDD?

Here's my problem. I have a Dell Dimension 5150, I'm using an iKey usb keyboard loaned to me because my regular keyboard died. An hour ago I got a virus (Yay, team Stopzilla) and decided, okay, I'll just reformat my hard drive and run a clean slate. But...BUT...when I turn off the computer and try to go into the bios, the machine won't recognize the keyboard until Windows XP is running! I cannot get into my bios! Any suggestions? I need help FAST!
 

A:Xp-related Hardware Issue?

You will need to connect a PS2 keyboard, if available. Or a wired USB keyboard, is this "iKey" keyboard is wireless.

If wired, try different USB ports on your machine. Some may be recognized before entering Windows.

----------------------------------------------

Also, if you have a virus, I suggest not formatting your harddrive and instead posting to the Virus & Other Malware Removal section of this site.

There are trained Malware Removal Experts there who can clean your computer.

Before you post there though, you need to read this.

Ok
Windows XP
512 ram 80 GB HD or so

Computer worked great for like 2 years. Then had a problem that I fixed with microsoft windows recovery console.

Then about 3 weeks later the computer broke down again, this time, it seemed more complicated.

I got problems saying something was wrong with system32/drivers/ntfs.sys

When trying to boot from CD:

- "setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4. Setup cannot continue. Pres any key to exit"

-An unexpected error (536805376) occured at line 176 in d:\xpclient\base\boot\setup\arcdisp.c.
----

No idea where to start. Could it be a problem with the physical hard disk or physical memory? Where do I go from here.

BTW I do not have any other RAM or HD that I can plug into this comp to test it out.

Thanks a lot in advance for whatever help you can provide.

Hi to all this is my first post , I will like to see if someone can tell if this is a Hardware or Software related?

I went to my sister house and she told me the computer do not boot up and when we try it again the screen displayed in small letters "no sistem imput"

can someone help me to find out the problem?
 

A:Hardware or Software related?

Most likely cause is a failed hard drive. If the computer is three years old, or more, or has a Quantum, Maxtor, or silver colored Western Digital drive, that is the problem most of the time.
Luckily you can now get large drives cheaply at www.newegg.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, www.directron.com, www.outpost.com, www.TigerDirect.com, and many others.
Do you have the install disc set that will be needed.
If you have valuable data that will need to be recovered, that can SOMETIMES be done, but that is a separate question.

Download the hard drive diagnostic for Western Digital from here: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en

You need to burn it to a CD or DVD with ISO burning software. If you need the software, I recommend ImgBurn: www.imgburn.com

Burn the CD and boot from it. Follow the on-screen instructions.

A:BSOD - New hardware (Memory related?)

Hello,

I'm not one to diagnose BSOD errors, I'll leave that to the specialists over here, but you are very underpowered for an HD 6950. That card needs at least 650W to operate efficiently. I realize that you have no problems playing games currently, and the reason for that being that Corsair PSU's are top quality and can pull more wattage then what's labeled on them and still function without breaking down, for a while at least.

But fast forward time a little bit, and the PSU will decide it had enough. It's going to fail and possibly kill other hardware with it. I would strongly suggest you upgrade to at least 650W, preferably 750W to protect your system from such fate. I'd stick with Corsair as well.

I just got done taking my computer on a trip, and I'm now having some trouble with it. I use Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2. It worked fine before I packed it up, but now it only gets to the Windows load screen and freezes. This worries me because it is probably a result of something that I did to it while packing, though I tried to be careful with it. Is there anything specific that I should look for in order to solve this problem?

If you just transported it, i'd re-check every cable that goes in to the computer once.

I am having frequent BSOD's always with different error codes. I am basically assuming my motherboard is faulty.

More details here: Blue Screen. BCCode: 1e - Microsoft Community

Basically I have ran memtest 5.01 for 18 hours (8 passes), ran seagate tools, dskchk, I swaped out video cards (the original card which I thought caused problems works perfectly in a friends system).

However, someone mentioned to physically test the ram and plug it out 1 by 1. I was wondering tho if there is a quicker method. Should I use 2 pairs at a time? Or just 1? Or keep 3 at a time and keep swapping 1 at a time.

Or go ahead and trust memtest that none of my 4 modules are bad and RMA my motherboard.

Hi Have been getting BSOD BSOD hardware ; SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION : related? for about a month now and BSOD : SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION ; hardware related? been trying to fix it myself but I really don't know what the problem is I believe it is hardware related either to the motherboard or processor but can't really confirm that either is faulty It started after I installed a SSD so I thought that was the problem for awhile and based my troubleshooting on it being faulty However I don't think it's the issue anymore because I've tried doing fresh installs without it on a HDD and reverted my BIOS to default settings and still have BSOD problems I did get the crashing to stop after I completely disassembled my system and put it back together reapplying themal paste to the processor This made the crashing stop for about a week My temps for the processor don't seem to be dangerously high though Less than C My video card gets a bit hot but says below C But I have tried using a different video card too so I think that it's not the problem edit Crashes usually happen under load gaming but happens while idle as well I will just make a list of the things I've tried I've probably done some other things too trying to Google and find out a solution Can't remember everything I've tried - Multiple fresh installs of Windows and Vista on a SSD and HDD - Tried Memtest for a total of passes and hours - Tried using a different video card with fresh install - Updated BIOS for motherboard and firmware for SSD If there is any information I've forgotten that I should post please let me know Any help that can be provided will be greatly appreciated Thank you

Hey all,
My friend has a dell computer and has downloaded a game onto it called "Gunbound". Anyways, he started to play it but has a problem - there is a black strip about an inch or so wide going right down the middle of the screen.

He has a geforce4 mx 440 videocard

If anyone could help me, we would really appreciate it.

Thanks
 

A:Game problem-related to hardware

Try changing the resolution of the game. Also, try changing the Antialising settings.. You can also run windows update to make sure you have microsoft approved drivers, and the latest directx.. I've gotten a few drivers off nvidia's website that I've had troubles with in the past.

Check in the settings of the game to make sure 3d is handled by hardware and not software.

Hi there
for a few months now, my computer has been freezing every time i try to watch a video or use any media device, and it pisses me right off.
Ive tried defragmenting, ive reinstalled windows, and the problem keeps persisting which makes me think its a hardware problem.
BUT i have 512 mb of ram which should be plenty enough to just watch a video with nothing else open. can anyone give me any advice?
Thanks alot
 

A:constant hardware-related(?) freeze-ups

G'day dj browser, try having a look in your "system information" folder under the system tools applet (navigating from the start button)
When you open that program you will find a nice area with a menubar with a "tools" item, drop down the list and see if you are showing a "problem log" if so open it and you may be able to get an idea of what program is causing the freezes.
Chances are if the program itself is not causing the problem it may be a driver error.
Sometimes using a specific driver removal tool for your card and removing the driver then reinstalling a new driver may help.
Sometimes removing the viewing program and reinstal may help.
It would also pay to run a "memtest86" test to confirm your memory is up to the task before you get too involved. Google the name, download the program, make a bootable disk and boot to it. Good program!!
Cheers, qldit.

New game says I need a 64 socket video card, I have a systemax HU 805 (Duel Core/64 socket) with integrated Invidea(sp) video card. Games freeze or slow down really a lot,
when complex video requirements arise. What should I do. Don't have a ton of money.

A:Hardware/game related problem

I went ahead and did a little bit of research on your setup there. Looks like your only running 512mb of RAM with S3 Unichrome integrated graphics. So to put it bluntly your system is not up to the task of playing games at a decent level. All hope is not lost. However it does require you open up your wallet. For the video card I recommend you go with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814141038

It's too bad you are stuck with an AGP slot. That's pretty much the best bang for the buck i can find for an AGP video card.

I would also suggest buying another stick of RAM if you can afford to. If you want to do that as well i will need detailed specs on the RAM itself to see if i can find a match for it. Otherwise you will want to go with a new set of matched ram.

Just buying the video card will show a HUGE improvement in gaming. On-board graphics REALLY suck. Right now you have an on-board S3 unichrome gpu that uses your system memory (that's not good). Graphics cards have their own on-board memory. So by using a video card instead of on-board video you will be freeing up 64mbs of system memory as well as a graphics processor that can handle just about anything there is out there right now.

I'm have several problems and I'm unsure if they are hardware or software related My laptop is a Dell Inspiron Several Problems, not sure if hardware or software related. It's about years old I am running Windows The problem possibly began a few weeks ago when my AVG virus spyware protector detected two trojans that they could not remove from my registry As a default response I used a System Restore to a point before I got that notice I made sure AVG was up to date and ran it again it did not detect the trojans anymore I have run AVG scan several times now and it doesn't detect anything so I'm unsure if this incident is related or simply a coincidence The true start of my problems was several days ago when my laptop was no longer able to come out of sleep mode I would close the laptop leave it be come back to it and when opening the laptop nothing happens It remains a black screen and the only way to get the laptop to turn back on is to turn it off and reboot it via the power button This does not happen every time but definitely the majority of the time Just to make sure it wasn't the problem I updated several of my drivers audio video BIOS which did not resolve the problem The problem has now escalated as I also cannot restart my laptop naturally When I press the restart option from the Windows button on my desktop it begins the process of shutting down properly but hangs on a black screen like when I try to open my laptop I have to press the power button to actually turn the laptop off and then again to turn it back on Just recently a completely new problem has begun as well After a few hours of use my connection to the internet will fail The internet itself is working fine and all other devices can connect to it However the laptop itself loses the connection to the internet Using Window's options to detect a problem brings back no results I must turn the computer off and then back on to get the internet back At this point I feel all these problems must be related as they all began happening now at the same time after four years of proper working use I should note that my battery is also dying but I've been using the power cord to keep the laptop online I've been using it like this for a few months so I'm unsure if this is related or not I know there's not much to go on here but hopefully someone knows what might be the cause of all these issues

A:Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related?

What error messages do you get for the BSOD?

What key errors are reflected in Event Viewer?

If I suspect a hardware problem...I just remove the hardware I have doubts about...and try to run the system without it.

I also try the hardware on that "spare system" I allow myself (I have 2 desktops).

In your case, I would have tried the devices one at a time...both on the problem system and on another system running the same O/S.

If each worked independently of the other, I would then try to get them to play together.

Sometimes...it just doesn't happen.

Update:

Tried extracting an archive on the 250GB drive, went at 16MB/s, lagged my computer out like crazy and i had to forcibly close the extraction. Copied the files to my 320GB (copied at full speed btw) and extracted there at 40MB/s with no impact on my PC performance whatsoever.

Seems fairly obvious then that my 250GB is simply screwed? Is there anything i can do here? SMART only shows 34 reallocated sectors out of 36 that were available for remapping leaving 2 spare sectors still, it should not be behaving like this, should it?

I ran the Microsoft set-up for Windows on my Windows desktop last night but then scheduled the actual failure Windows 10? to related Boot/hardware upgrade for tomorrow got Boot/hardware failure related to Windows 10? through running the checks and the download only When I came to my PC this morning it looks like it rebooted and I had a Boot Failure insert disc and press enter error Hitting enter didn't do anything so I restarted note that my keyboard LEDs were on When I initially restarted the case fans turned on but the screen would not nor would the power light on the case I let it sit for minutes and tried again and now the mobo option screen would come up but it would not move past that Also my keyboard LEDs were not lit yet my mouse was I was trying to get into BIOS options but it would not move past that screen I'm thinking hardware failure here but not sure if it could potentially be related to something that happened with windows pre-install that would've affected it since the timing is very coincidental Any thoughts

A:Boot/hardware failure related to Windows 10?

You're correct IMO.  It seems highly coincidental, but the symptoms do seem hardware related.
 
I would first suggest running Startup Repair (for W7) as the system hasn't been updated yet.  https://www.winhelp.us/repair-your-computer-in-windows-vista-or-7.html
 
Is there any chance that the hard drive is overfull?  If it is, it may not be able to boot because of the lack of room for operations that Windows has to perform.
 
You can try these bootable hardware diagnostics (if you can boot from removeable media):  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

Hi everyone

I've been getting lots of BSOD (same causes every time) when just doing normal windows task. It just occurs as time passes. Not playing a game or doing anything intenous. I recently moved my PC so something might be a bit loose? It must do with my display driver/card because the screens just go black and I cant see the BSOD. There is a loud buzzing/beeping noise through the headphones while this occurs. I must power reset the PC to get it back to normal

A:BSOD Hardware/driver related - 0x00000116

Yeah, that is related to your video driver, I notice you only have 10 updates installed too.

Please perform the following:

1. Download and save this tool to your desktop:

Okay--my laptop started freezing. First thing I did was swap out memory--same problem. Next thing I did was reinstall windows--same problem. I ran virus check. I'm thinking this must be hardware related. How can I narrow it down to figure out what it is?

Some information about the BSOD is needed. Provide a camera snap of the BSOD screen at least which will give the onscreen codes.

Hi everyone, I have a self-built PC running Windows 7 Home Premium. Specs are: 2.5GB Quad Core Intel CPU, 4GB of RAM and an Asus GeForce 7200.

I downloaded a program (sysfan I think it's called, I'm posting from a different computer), which showed that everything was fine apart from the GPU temperature which, over the evening I ran the program stayed at around 60 degrees C, everything else was between 20 & 30 degrees.

I was thinking of upgrading to this:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/174120

My only real concern is whether my PSU will be able to handle it, I have a 390 watt Seasonic PSU.

Thanks for any help.

A:Random BSOD's Not sure if it's Hardware or Software related

Seasonic is a good power supply brand but we're not going to recommend you run any pci-e card on anything less then a 550w.

However 60c isn't enough to cause blue screens. While it's too hot for an idle , it's not enough to be causing the problem.

After replacing a power supply and reinstalling windows my computer has not recognized its own ethernet port, a pci slot wireless card, or any other network related hardware. This has been very frustrating because nothing seems to work. Other hardware plugged into the pci slots work fine such as the video card. I have tried adjusting options in the bios and even flashing the bios to a newer version but neither have worked. I had the newest drivers installed for the wireless card and ethernet port installed(realtek) but the hardware is not even recognized at all in the hardware manager. The only device with a yellow question mark was a device labeled as "SM Bus Controller". Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix the issue?

A:Windows XP not recognizing any network related hardware

You need to install the Chipset driver.

What make/model PC? If custom built then post the MB make/model.

A:Xp Machine Running Slow, Hardware Related?

Has it always had 128 meg of ram? That is way low for Win XP, it will run, but at a crawl. 256 is good, 512 is better. RAM is very cheap these days, I would try that and then go from there.But, if the computer has always had this small an amount of ram, and has gotten slower, there may be other problems.You could go to pcpitstop.com and try their diagnostic program, it will give you some hardware information.If you hadn't changed the hard drive I would also suspect virus or spyware and unless you are 100% certain the second drive was clean I would run and post a Hijack This Log. Especially do this if you go to pc pitstop and they say there are problems in this area.

The problem started yesterday while I tried games. BSOD hardware/GPU all Definitely related. starting to run Counter-Strike Global Offensive by launching it with the ESEA client and got a BSOD starting all games. Definitely hardware/GPU related. BSOD At first BSOD starting all games. Definitely hardware/GPU related. I thought it was a CS GO related problem as the game is relatively new and there were GPU problems in the past when the game was beta I have a NVIDIA GTX M on a Qosmio x Following forums I figured I may have to flash BIOS and update graphics card drivers However despite these updates I kept BSOD'ing every time while trying to launch the game Taking my research further I realized the computer would crash while starting ANY game Even opening the NVIDIA client to change d settings led to a BSOD After a lot of frustration and futile updates I thought perhaps it was an overheating issue and left the laptop off for the night with all USB ports unplugged At first today seemed good since I was able to go through d settings in the NVIDIA control panel with no crash But while returning to the original game that caused problems CS GO I got a bluescreen again I really need to know what is going on as I haven't the faintest clue I've attached a diagnostic error report of one of the crashes there have been many and I am willing to provide any extra information just as long as I get some responses Please help me on this and I will shower you with beneficence goodwill and many internet points Edit I found out there is one more graphics card driver to be downloaded and to update the system Please be patient for a few minutes I'll re-report I'm sorry for the blatant oversight Edit Actually it appears that NVIDIA continues to tell me to update the driver to even though I already have it installed I hope this helps in figuring out what the issue is I'm guessing a faulty driver Should I update Intel display drivers by chance Also Minecraft DeuxEx Human Revolution and Medieval Total War II are all confirmed BSOD's as well

can any one help mw with my ps2, it is ejecting the games but the disc tray is not going back into the console (only about 1/3 rd of the way) anybody got any advice to what may be obstructing the disc tray?
the tray is now stuck fully ejected.

A:ps2 problem - hardware related ie-dvd/game loader

Look on the bottom of your PS2 and check what the model number is. The 30001 series (the first series) were junk and I heard that a lot of them had faulty trays. I believe that if you have that model of PS2 that Sony will fix it for free if you call their 1-800 number.

If it's not that model, then you might just have to buy another PS2. It's hard to find anyone who fixes them, and usually the cost to have them repaired outweighs the cost of getting a new system (espeically with the holiday deals you can get this time of year!)

I can think of is that I installed a demo of a game Jedi Knight II which played perfectly fine and played Call of Duty afterwards and everything was working fine for at least a little while before this problem surfaced Any ideas would be greatly appreciated nbsp

Hi TheDestron,

Welcome to the 8forums.

Unfortunately, I cannot really find a possible cause as a possible solution.
I do find lots of files dating from 2014 and earlier where some might need updating.
Please visit Windows Update and install every update available, it may take a couple of times to get them all.
Please remove Google Chrome while troubleshooting, Chrome lately causes for some people crashes.
Please update the device drivers as far as you can, via the site of the manufacturer of the driver. Do not update through device manager as you'll get always the message that the drivers are up to date.

I would like you to try driver verifier and run some hardware tests so we can get a lead to the cause.



Diagnostic Test

DRIVER VERIFIER

   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.
Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.
Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.
If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.



Diagnostics Tests

Read carefully before proceeding.

   Warning
If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.

   Note
Test the system once the overclock is removed before continuing with the steps outlined below.
Part One: CPU Stress Test
Part Two: MemTest86+ RAM Diagnostic
Part Three: Hard Drive Diagnostics
Part Four: GPU Stress Test


ONE

CPU TEST

Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 7 Help Forums
   Warning
Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.


TWO

RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Help Forums

   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


THREE

HDD TEST

Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools - HDD test - Windows 7 Help Forums

   Note
Do not run SeaTools on an SSD as the results will be invalid.
Run chkdsk Chkdsk - HDD Test - Windows 7 Help Forums


FOUR

GPU TEST

Run Furmark to stress test your GPU. FurMark - GPU Stress Test - Windows 7 Help Forums

   Note
Run Furmark for around 30 minutes.
   Warning
Your GPU temperatures will rise quickly while Furmark is running. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.

BSOD; symbol problems when debugging OK so no idea what caused it I would think that a hardware problem would be more serious I then tried to debug it the same way I successfully debugged my last BSOD using WinDbg I've correctly set the symbol path and everything but bizarrely it still complains that it doesn't have the right symbols I can open all my old crash dumps just fine with the same symbol path the one related to this new problem is the only one that for some reason can't use the symbol path It's online SRV c symbols http msdl microsoft com download symbols I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A -S laptop running -bit Vista Here is what WinDbg does give me along with the complaining about symbols Bugcheck Analysis WHEA UNCORRECTABLE ERROR A fatal hardware error has occurred Parameter identifies the type of error source that reported the error Parameter holds the address of the WHEA ERROR RECORD structure that describes the error conditon Arguments Arg Machine Check Exception Arg fffffa df Address of the WHEA ERROR RECORD structure Arg f High order -bits of the MCi STATUS value Arg Low order -bits of the MCi STATUS value Debugging Details ------------------ Your debugger is not using the correct symbols In order for this command to work properly your symbol path must point to pdb files that have full type information Certain pdb files such as the public OS symbols do not contain the required information Contact the group that provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work Type referenced pshed WHEA ERROR RECORD HEADER Your debugger is not using the correct symbols In order for this command to work properly your symbol path must point to pdb files that have full type information Certain pdb files such as the public OS symbols do not contain the required information Contact the group that provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work Type referenced pshed WHEA ERROR RECORD SECTION DESCRIPTOR Your debugger is not using the correct symbols In order for this command to work properly your symbol path must point to pdb files that have full type information Certain pdb files such as the public OS symbols do not contain the required information Contact the group that provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work Type referenced pshed WHEA ERROR RECORD HEADER Your debugger is not using the correct symbols In order for this command to work properly your symbol path must point to pdb files that have full type information Certain pdb files such as the public OS symbols do not contain the required information Contact the group that provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work Type referenced pshed WHEA ERROR RECORD HEADER Your debugger is not using the correct symbols In order for this command to work properly your symbol path must point to pdb files that have full type information Certain pdb files such as the public OS symbols do not contain the required information Contact the group that provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work Type referenced pshed WHEA ERROR RECORD HEADER BUGCHECK STR x GenuineIntel CUSTOMER CRASH COUNT DEFAULT BUCKET ID VISTA DRIVER FAULT PROCESS NAME explorer exe CURRENT IRQL f STACK TEXT fffff f c nt KeBugCheckEx STACK COMMAND kb FOLLOWUP NAME MachineOwner MODULE NAME hardware IMAGE NAME hardware DEBUG FLR IMAGE TIMESTAMP FAILURE BUCKET ID X x GenuineIntel UNKNOWN BUCKET ID X x GenuineIntel UNKNOWN Followup MachineOwnerDoes anyone know what ...

A:Hardware-Related(?) BSOD; symbol problems when debugging

I'd suggest doing a CHKDSK and also checking on your warranty position.

So months later on the years if counting all XPS models and the coil whine is still present more or less on each computer What I ve found the Let's whine - or XPS investigate 13/15 related? Software Hardware Coil out people are experiencing nbsp Mods on the Let's investigate the XPS 13/15 Coil whine - Hardware or Software related? forum states that the older models coil whine is related to the motherboard However several recent reports on replaced motherboards states that this has not solved the issue Nor does replacing speakers network card - this suggest that if it is motherboard related it is on all the current ones it can be different degrees - some people do not even notice it guess it depends on your hearing and how thoroughly you ve tried to identify it Some report loud coil whine Let's investigate the XPS 13/15 Coil whine - Hardware or Software related? from Let's investigate the XPS 13/15 Coil whine - Hardware or Software related? the AC adapter itself - this can be replaced and is apparently reported to fix that issues some report that plugged or unplugged AC gives different volumes of whine It seems to be directly related to scrolling and heavy work load mine only generates a low whine when scrolling - on load it sometimes quot ticks quot times a second like a clock but with this coil whine sound Changing the power plan to high performance can increase the level of whine Potential solutions temp to the low type of coil whine only present when scrolling or in a really silent room Disable the C state in the BIOS menu this does not work for me though Disable the graphics drivers in the device manager this completely stops all coil whine for me Interestingly enough if you keep it disabled for a while and then reactive them sometimes the coil whine is gone - until a restart at least Conclusion Hardware - If you have a really high noise when plugged in from the AC brick itself - Get it replaced with a new one Software - I m not sure Disabling the drivers makes all of my laptops completely silent of course this is not a permanent solution Discussion What does the solution of disabling the graphics drivers imply A driver problem that is causing the noise Or maybe the disabling of the driver just stops the processor integrated graphics to utilize the hardware part that is generating the noise If the latter is the case then why does re-enabling them after a while not result in coil-whine I m not a technician or an expert on software hardware simply a person that likes to research Feel free to add to any of the segments Dell has recognized the low coil whine as a quot design feature quot and will try to offer a refund instead of a replacement as the replacement will most likely also suffer from the coil whine TL DR Coil whine is still present hardware software

A:Let's investigate the XPS 13/15 Coil whine - Hardware or Software related?

I can confirm the (temporary) solution of disabling the Intel Graphics Drivers. No more coil whine.

Hi

I'm pretty sure this is an hardware problem and not a software problem.

When booting the PC the windows xp boot screen loads longer than any computer i have ever seen .

1. It can't be a virus as when i format it still happens

2. I've even tried different Hard Drives so i dont think its that (Recently Bought new 1)

3.I've also used different copies of windows XP (My disk & My brother's Disk)

Any ideas maybe ?
---------------
PC Specs
---------------
Windows Xp Home SP2
CPU = AMD Athlon 64 X2 DUAL 5000+ ( 2.81GHZ )
RAM = 2x2gb OCZ GOLD ddr2 pc2 6400 (only shows 3.25gb , I do know why !)
Motherboard = ASUS M2N-ESLI NVIDIA

Thanks Joe.
 

A:Windows takes ages to load (Hardware Related ?)

You may have narrowed it down to memory (though the drive and its configuration may be at fault, too):

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
Memtest86

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista and can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

My computer occassionally abruptly freezes in the middle of me surfing the web or playing an online game Everquest and World of Warcraft --mouse doesn't move doesn't respond to ctrl-alt-delete I have to turn the power switch on off to get out of it It usually freezes within - minutes of opening the browser or game no matter how long the computer has seems Freezing, to related bandwidth been running but if it doesn't freeze within that time period it won't for the rest of the session It seems to be related to how much information is coming in over the internet connection as the chances of it freezing go up dramatically if I log into a laggy room in EQ versus checking my email It's not related to the adapter as it did the same thing when I used a wall plug-in cord instead of a wireless adapter Putting the computer into sleep mode instead of fully turning it off seems to keep this problem from happening but obviously I can't always do that It also never does this when I'm using programs that don't need the internet What could be causing this My drivers are up-to-date and I've tried Freezing, seems related to bandwidth turning on off things like the firewall to no avail Any idea

A:Freezing, seems related to bandwidth

hi and welcome to the forum could you post your computers spec ie make model etc,in the mean time try running a sfc /scnw http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/66...c-command.html also check in event viewer

Hello all I am new here but am so far extremely impressed with the members know how and courtesy in helping others For quite hardware BSOD related suspected attached - Random minidump some time now I have been experiencing blue screen crashes randomly I have little programs installed and most regularly use the computer for playing Random BSOD - suspected hardware related minidump attached WarThunder and occasionally Battlefield Although sometimes the BSOD occurs just browsing the web or even at idle There Random BSOD - suspected hardware related minidump attached is no frequency attached to the issue with sometimes hours or sometimes days passing without incident It is also worth mentioning that quite often after a crash my machine will just go into an infinite boot loop without ever reaching POST or BIOS This continues until I cut the power and restart in which case it may do the same again an indefinite amount of times or just spring into life as normal I have not tried any overclocking and temperature monitoring software shows perfectly acceptable readings throughout The crashes got so bad about months ago that I gave up using the machine I would now like to get to the bottom of the issue so have started the fault finding process I will attach the minidump files as far back as they go as I said some months now If there is any further resources I could share to help anyone who knows what they are looking for I would be more than happy Lastly I am semi proficient in computing and my machine is home built I accept switching out hardware may be needed EDIT I have used Command Prompt to run a SFC scannow but it has found no integrity violations I am just trying to successfully run a DM Log which I will post next

Hey guys, I've been having some issues with my download/upload speeds lately after upgrading mobo/processor and OS to 7 x64 and I haven't been able to track it. My average wired on other computers are around: 25 (download), 7 (upload) and wireless I generally see: 13 (download), 4 (upload).

This particular setup was okay before, and I have another wireless router set up on the other side of my wall giving me full service. I don't have wireless problems with any other devices other then this one.

Current connect speed: 54 mb/s.
Wireless adapter: Tenda W311U 11N

A:Deadly Slow Network Speeds, software or hardware related?

Another forgotten detail is that everyone once in a while, the Windows networking service will crash, and a lot of my visual settings will change to basic until I run the troubleshooter which starts the networking service back up again. I'm sure they're related.
