Event log swarm! Including event ID's 1000, 80, 11, 1001+2, etc...

Q: Event log swarm! Including event ID's 1000, 80, 11, 1001+2, etc...

Hi My computer runs for all Event 1000, log 1001+2, Including ID's 11, event 80, etc... swarm! practical purposes I guess Event log swarm! Including event ID's 1000, 80, 11, 1001+2, etc... but I can certainly feel that there is good reason for all event log errors while working on my windows For example the blue screen Event log swarm! Including event ID's 1000, 80, 11, 1001+2, etc... of death appears once every - months or earlier today the computer just started getting really slow given my GB memory this raaarely happens or quot windows explorer quot would randomly crash however when this does happen it usually happens just once during a session then it restarts and it's fine so it's Event log swarm! Including event ID's 1000, 80, 11, 1001+2, etc... not preventing me from using my computer it's just something's wrong and it shouldn't be and I want to fix it I have rows and columns of event log errors such as event ID event ID and much more but since addressing all of them at once will probably invade the entire forum I prefer to address them perhaps in little bundles so I don't annoy the experts and exploit the resources Also I have a feeling that once I start fixing some of them many others will disappear automatically I'm sorry if my post is a bit vague but this is my first time here so please be patient with me and just tell me whatever information you need from me to narrow things down and I will do that I have provided a link to a few of my event logs to OneDrive which I appropriately labeled to make it easier to distinguish which one is which http drv ms mlhJJ Thank you so much in advance

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

In a strange turn of events, Nvidia elected to use Epic Games' media event (instead of its own last night) at the Game Developers Conference to reveal its newest flagship graphics card, the Titan X.

A:Nvidia crashes Epic Games' media event, announces Titan X graphics card

Soo... What are the chances of a 6GB "980Ti" variant? A bit like the 780Ti was to the Titan Black?
Because it would be better for games and a hell of a lot cheaper

If the rumor mill is to be believed, the price is going to be $1,349, Most people who buy this for gaming will have no use of the double precision floating point prowess of the card, and the few that would probably should have spent a couple hundred extra bucks to get a proper Quadro!

A:$1000-1200 Gaming PC (Feedback)

As a fellow Perth dweller, I highly recommend you order your parts from an online store such as Mwave or PC Case Gear. They are cheaper than pretty much any local store and have a much larger range of components (I recommend you purchase your Case and Monitor locally, as they cost a fair bit to ship). You can save some money buy buying from multiple stores as well, just keep an eye out for good deals.

As for your build, I'm liking most of it, I have a couple of suggestions however.

I wouldn't bother with a V8 for the cooler, I's suggest downgrading to a Hyper 212X (newer version of the 212 Evo). They are more popular and can guarantee good results.

If you can stretch it, go for the Samsung 840 Pro for your SSD, as they are significantly better than the non-pro.

I think your PSU is cutting it pretty fine, and I'd definitely suggest an upgrade. I'd get a 650W or even a 750W form Corsair or Seasonic, as this will leave some headroom for you to upgrade in the future.

As for the case, the choice is really up to you and your personal taste. I like the look of the Corsair Carbide 300R for your price range.

I'd also recommend getting Windows 7 Home Premium to save cash, unless you want professional for a specific reason.

At with my suggestions, including a 650W PSU and shipping (I live near Claremont and it'll cost me $30 for shipping) the PC totals $1362. Buying your Case locally will shave a little more off the cost.

I've heard great things about the Coolermaster QuickFire TK (they come in Red, Brown or Blue Switches) for an entry-level Mechanical Keyboard. I'd suggest doing your research and try to find some to try out before choosing, however.

I have a Dell Studio 1737 Windows Vista Home 64 Service Pack 2. All of my drivers are up to date and I have the most recent BIOS.

I get this error message in my event viewer a couple of time an hour:

Source: ACPI
Event ID: 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

Also, when my computer is unplugged from the AC and running on battery power the system lags a lot and after about 15 minutes its turns off without warning.

I feel like this is all connected. Any advice?

Thank you!

A:DNS client event errors

Easiest approach is to delete the host file
\windows\system32\drivers\etc contains hosts

you need ADMIN privileges
First stop the client by getting a cmd prompt and enter net stop "dns client" (exactly as shown)
now cd to \windows\system32\drivers\etc

del hosts
then recreate it using echo "" >hosts
(that is two consecutive double-quotes without anything between)

now you should clear the event viewer log containing the error and follow up with
net start "dns client"

I had the same problem when my graphics card died and then it has also happened to me when a HDD died and got it working by disconnecting the power cable to faulty component. So you could try that, one component at the time, or then remove (for ex.) one ram card and try, then an other and try again...and so on

Building my first pc, looking for some advice on which parts to buy, here's some info:

* I want to build a gaming PC
* I want to spend about $900-1000(that's not including shipping/tax to keep things simple).
* I live in California, USA
* I want to buy from newegg
* I am not reusing any old parts from an earlier build
* I haven't bought any parts yet
* I do not need any peripherals
* I don't have an OS and I want windows 7 home
* Since this is my first time building a PC, I would like to avoid liquid cooling and stick with fans, I also don't plan on overclocking.
* Full size case is fine; I don't plan on moving PC for lans etc.
* I do modding on an older game which has trouble with radeon drivers, so I want a nVidia card.

Hi I was looking to build a new PC for my dad for father's day or his birthday and he would use it to run two small businesses and also for media (such as watching high definition movies, video/audio editing, photoshop, etc.) I would also be using it to game whenever I come home from college but thats not as important as fulfilling all his needs.

My budget would be around $1000 to $1500 as previously stated in the title. I won't be needing any peripherals, and I plan on using the cooler master haf x tower.

Any suggestions on the rest of the build? This would be the first build by myself but I've helped and observed a few other builds. Any help would be appreciated!

If you could be a little more specific about what you'll need it for; running a small businesses is broad.

I suggested two 2TB drives in RAID I for data redundancy, which I would think might be important, but that's to your discretion; same goes for the capacity.

A:Building a new computer for $1000, looking for best possible build


So you've made the decision of building your own computer. GOOD FOR YOU! :grinthumb

Now, before anything i'd like to let you know that building a PC is more of an opinion thing.. I'm pretty sure spending 1000 Dollars is already going WAY over what you really need. So i'm going to provide you with my opinionated choice.

First off, i'm buying everything off of newegg which i dont get charged taxes for.

I've got an ASUS M4N98TD Motherboard,
An AMD phenom 2 X6 overclocked to 3.8ghz (Bought it at 2.8Ghz)
i've got 6GB of G-Skill Ram DDR3

and Two XFX HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 Video Cards

I built all of this (Including case and peripherals) For under $850.

But i could have done cheaper. For instance, i did not need Two Video cards, and i did not need a hexacore a quad core would have been fine. But i've got Six Screens to power Crysis 2 on and Garrys mod, and i am ONE happy Camper.

Just make sure, that what you buy is a good investment for the future, Reason i also Picked Hexacore, is so i dont have to change the computer for another 10 years hopefully.

This will be my first time building a pc. Getting tired of prebuilts. I see a lot of people using the Intel I7 processor and was wondering if that was a good choice. The foremost thing I have no clue about is what motherboard to choose. I want to be able to run WoW, newer fps games, and (this sounds silly) Minecraft. I have just around $1000 to spend - more if I get a couple of things sold. I'd prefer an nVidia graphics card. Lastly, I plan on upgrading in the future. That's why I feel so confused on the motherboard. I'd like something functional now, so in the future I can tweak. Thanks.

This setup gets you a MB that has the 750 Southbridge that you need to unlock the disabled cores. The x3 720 can be had for around the same price, is a black edition, will give you a full Ghz OC, and has three cores even if the 4th core will not unlock, or is a dud. (important because more and more games are using 2+ cores). The 5830 is close to the 4870 in performance, but you get DX 11 for future considerations. The cpu is a BE for easier and more flexible OC'ing. I threw in there an after market cooler for OC'ing. The MB has a second PCIE slot for VGA upgrade if the mood strikes you Newegg CA would not connect when i tried it a few mins ago, so I will let you find them if you like it.

I d posted in another part of techspot about a problem that it finally turned out was a slowly very slowly dying hard disk that I d had as my D drive for data and documents etc on an XP SP system gig memory Pentium GHz Not wanting to again be so vulnerable to losing my data I thought I d try a RAID configuration I went cheap yes in event viewer errors on copies RAID large and often a mistake I know with an Addonics ADSA PCI controller card that supported software RAID Once I got past the bad documentation - the installation guide started with the driver installation then the next step said quot do this part first if you re configuring RAID RAID errors on large copies and in event viewer quot and described a procedure where several things were to be installed BEFORE the card was - things never really got going smoothly I got RAID running and thought that for sake of ease I d just copy my data roughly gigs from the single drive that had it to the new RAID setup The old drive I had relettered to Q and the new array was D this was done before I configured RAID and formatted the new drives So I went to Q and selected all highlighting all top-level files and folders and their subcontents copied then went to D and pasted Every time I tried this within - minutes I d have a BSOD either a kernel stack or a kernel data inpage error The time it seemed to work best I d moved about gigs in some files So is that a problem with the RAID or with Windows and its copy function Obviously I don t typically copy that much data using copy and paste but I ve done it before without problems Ultimately I used an image of my data and restored that image onto D and all worked well And the computer has been stable now for almost hours since all this happened There ve been two exceptions One was that twice on restart XP has launched chkdsk on C my boot drive not the RAIDed data drive The first time this happened I d had to do a force restart after a lockup on a mass copy attempt so I could have accepted this becuase of the abnormal ending The second time though was after a smooth Windows restart that I did when installing some Windows updates a NET service pack that had been pushed to me after I had to install NET as part of the required RAID utility package that came with the controller card Since I m almost never asked to run chkdsk and when I am I usually understand why this bothers me The other is that I have gotten several event viewer errors related to the new RAID array A few were at a time when I had restarted Windows smooth and normal Windows restart and it went to the login screen fine and stayed that way overnight Others have occurred invisible to me when I m on the PC Here s the most recent one Event Type Error Event Source SiSRaid Event Category None Event ID Date Time PM User N A Computer XP Description The device Device Scsi SiSRaid did not respond within the timeout period For more information see Help and Support Center at http go microsoft com fwlink events asp Data f h c a Is this stuff normal Should I be worried Pre-RAID I d go weeks usually but often months with no errors ever in my event viewer nbsp

So I went to Q:\ and selected all (highlighting all top-level files and folders, and their subcontents), copied, then went to D:\ and pasted.Click to expand...

Ouch! The technique of copy/paste is more likely to cause issues than anything else, especially on large size transfers.

Thinking of going for a new build, I'll hold onto a couple of components from my machine such as operating system, case, sound card, monitor and mouse/keyboard.

So if you had between 500 - 600 ($800 - $1000) to spend for a new,

A:New HDD/XP gets stuck booting, lots of event viewer errors

It appears that you have a nice system, if you can get it back to normal.
We have to suspect other hardware, since two hard drives have similar symptoms... but you may have copied evil stuff from the one drive to the other. How did you transfer files? Or an infestation.
What did you use to scan your system for virus and spyware infestations?
Have you carefully checked your cables... or even tried replacing them temporarily?
Examine all sockets for dirt and debris, and clean your system thoroughly but carefully.
You may need to rule out some things that do not seem part of the problem... as it may be a long and slow process to figger out where the problem is... I would start, if the drive will work well enough, by running MemTest86 for four hours or seven passes, which ever is longer... or removing half the memory to test the other half, then switching.
We always suspect the cables first. They can fail and look good.
Any defective hardware part can cause problems elsewhere if the conditions are right... so I would begin by making a check list, then trading out everything on the list... video card, modem even if not used, ethernet connection or software, .
I would also try another drive and cable... any other drive, even using the first drive, fully reformatted and reinstalled with Windows and basic software....
Windows will not normally cause these of problem, but if you have scratches or smudges that would make it difficult to read, then you could theoretically introduce errors... unlikely though that is.
You could have an optical drive error that is not seeing the software properly.
But it is also possible that your Asus board, good as it is, has a defect.

Can some help me. My computer does not boot i get the Dell screen but then goes blank to a line on the upper right corner of screen. i used F12 to run a Diagnostics it said i had a Error 1000-0322 LCD Inverter Failer . well i have two hard drives and the other one works thats what i am on now. I dont want to lose the data on the other one. I have windows xp pro on the one that does not work and vista on this one. I have tried to restore from the disk but it asked for Administrative password i have tried the one i use to log on with but it says it is wrong I don't know what to do.

A:Dell Error 1000-0322 help

LCD inverter is usually a problem with the backlight or screen image inverter... If you do not see problems with the screen, ignore this for now.
Sometimes the Administrative password is blank, or has other possibilities you can get from Dell tech support.

A:Inspiron 1000 - help to identify damaged chip

Isn't it best to use your Service Tag number, then go to the Support site at Dell for advice or a motherboard replacement ? or just order a replacement on eBay ?
It is pretty difficult to replace the chip yourself unless you are very skilled chip techniques, and can identify the EEPROM, as they are made in many configurations that cannot be easily identified and changed.
Alternately The motherboard has ID numbers around the edge, and near the center you can use to buy identify the motherboard in preparation to find a replacement As you may know,
EEPROMS come in many different sizes and shapes, and some come on daughter boards or other devices that have multiple chips. Unless you have the specific device that generates the code and voltages (installs or writes the code to the chip) for the EEPROM, you are sunk... If you are a programmer with the hardware that does the job, you already know this. But you can hardly ever exchange out the chip and make things work.
EEPROM chips would rarely be exposed to a heat source great enough to cause serious overheating damage. If you have been trained to write the code to that particular device, then you should be able to spot it.. On an individual basis, this usually requires lab or bench equipment. You can, with this knowledge, alter the value of certain cells without needing to erase the programming on other cells. Sections of data can be erased and replaced multiple times without needing to alter the rest of the chip's programming, but this is not a high heat operation, and the EEPROM is not near a heat source on the board.
Data stored in an EEPROM chip is permanent, at least until the user decides to erase and replace the information it contains. Obviously the data stored in an EEPROM chip is not lost even when power is turned off. There are specific techniques and equipment needed to erase and rewrite a specific EEPROM chip... Unplugging (desoldering) one EEPROM and replacing it with another does not work unless you know the rest of the code. Erasing it without recoding will not work either.
To configure an EEPROM chip, an electric field produced by the charge pump is applied locally to cells marked for modification. Nowadays the number of times EEPROM's can be reprogrammed or altered is usually limited, but you still need a die and the knowledge of each EEPROM and its voltage requirements.

Dear friends,
I am using a Dell Vostro 1000 laptop. Its about a year old. The laptop has a wireless mini card which can be turned on with the Function key (fn+f2). This was working properly until a few months back, when the computer failed to respond to the fn+f2 command. I had to open Dell's wireless card utility to turn on and off the wifi. I assumed it to be a problem with Dell Quickset as this problem cropped up after I opened dell quickset for the first time and closed it. I re-installed quickset but the same problem persists. Curiously, when I open network connections and disable the wireless connection, the wi-fi light illuminates. No idea why this happens. Can anyone shed light on this issue?

Hi All;

From time to time on my XP Home SP2 machine I get a "TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts." warning.

I've read the MS Help and Support info, do not have a virus or malware as was suggested in the article and I tried the cmd line: netstat -no proceedure to no avail.

It's not the end of the world and my dsl has no other issues.

I can live with it, but wonder you know of a work-around.

Certainly appreciate any help.

A:Tcpip Warning in Event Viewer/System

Sometimes the machine freezes, sometimes not. The error message is: Source: atapi, Type Error Event ID 9, Description: "The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort7, did not respond within the timeout period". (At times I get Event 15 error)

I suspect it has something to do with the two Liteon DVDRW's I have.

Would anyone know if this is a known problem? I have the latest video drivers.

Ok so I was given a Dell Inspiron 1000 today and can't boot it as it wants a password. I don't know the previous owner so it's not like I can call them. I am waiting on a Transfer of Ownership to process with Dell to see if they will help me. But in the mean time, I wanted to see if anyone on here could possibly help me. As soon as I hit the power button, it turns on, and the screen goes black with a blue box that says "enter password". Is there a way to bypass this??? I've tried reinstalling windows, but the CD won't boot. I can hear it spin, but nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!

Hello, 1st post.... anyways..

I have a Dell E1705 Inspiron
Dual Core 2.16 GHz Intel processor
2Gb of RAM
and a 256 ATI Radeon Mobile Video card...

Problem is after I log in and try to play a game (or sometimes do nothing) my processor speed will drop to 1000 MHz and it is painfully slow to do anything. I can't think of anything that would cause this. It just "happened" one day when i booted up. Should I re-install windows? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

A:Processor setting itself to 1000 MHz

Sounds like the Intel SpeedStep to me. It shouldn't be slower though as when more processing power is needed the CPU's speed is set back to its maximum. If the system is constantly slow maybe you have too many things running in memory.

A:My 1000 Dollar Gaming Build. Choices Galore!

Your friend is right, the core 2's from intel are faster. I would stick with SLI instead of going Crossfire. SLI is more mature and seems to work better. If you plan on going sli, get a 7900 instead of 7950 and you will save yourself a boat load of dough.

Memory looks fine and for you hdd you might want to check out the 320GB Seagate perpindicular hdd. I think it goes for about $94 on newegg. Runs a bit warm but is very quick.

What brand is the power supply? $40 for a 600W seems suspiciously low. Probably doesn't have many amps on the 12 volt lines and will cause you problems if/when you go sli. If you can post all of the links to newegg in a future post we might be able to give some more advice.

Can i disable the ram, and put in a new stick in the empy bank?

Or, do I give up.

A:Inspiron 1000 onboard ram bad?

Do you mean ram that came with the computer? I have personally never heard of ram built into a computer. If the ram was bad, the computer wouldn't boot. Maybe the ram is starting to go, but try other ram in the computer and run the same test and see what the results are.

I have a custom built pc that my friend put together for me. This also has a sound card problem - The sound stops working after a sound has been played more than a couple of times, and the computer might freeze or restart after a while. I know this is the sound card/driver because the computer works fine when i disable the driver. I meant to use this computer for multimedia so i have an asus motherboard with an external echo event gina 20 sound card.
I have tried downloading an re-installing the driver but that doesnt work. I'm guessing something must be configured wrongly, or the driver isnt compatible for some reason.

A:Another sound card problem! echo event

Hi benz925,
i have exactly the same problem than you with a gina 20 and a Asus P5GD2 premium wireless edition Mobo ...;(
For me , that's not a drivers problem , i have install the Gina with the same drivers on another compute with the same XP pro sp2 and it works fine.
I think there are a conflict between mobo and the gina and really i don't know how to fix that.
The more simple is to put the mail i send to echo support ( without any response , not too cool) for explain my problem and all the things i have try to fix it and it will be cool to stay in touch if we find something.
What is the reference of your Mobo please ?

My mail to Echo-support :
Hello Echo, and first sorry for my terrible english, i 'm from France.
I can't make work my gina 20 with my new config and i've try a lot of things and all your latest drivers 6.11, 6.08, 6.05, so perhaps you can help me.
the card still work fine on my olds computers, and also with a more recent config with XP pro sp2 installed by me identically to my compute ( brother's computer )with the 6.11 drivers.
On mine, install is fine with all the drivers versions for W2K/XP and it seems to have no problem on the device manager.
But i have no sound and chaotic problem with all software calling the asio wdm drivers :
no sound, or sometimes white noise
software that crash or not read any audio events
no output level in the console or sometimes all in the red

Softs work fine with the cheap sound card integrated with the mobo ( but cheap sound, lot of latency, not a gina

I've reinstall completely XP ,without the plug&play option in the bios to prevent hardware conflicts, so i don't have any other soundcard (disabled in bios also), no wifi, no lan,no drivers of graphic card, nothing ...

Gina appear on IRQ 21 without sharing or conflict and it's always the same problem ;(

So i just describe my config and perhaps you have an idea to something to test, it will be wonderful :

pentim 640 3.2Ghz
mobo asus p5GD2 premium (last bios) with chip sound: c-media9880 (same problem with sound chip enabled in bios and not installed)
GC Gigabyte 6600 GT
1 Go ddr2 533 corsair select
hd hitachi S-ATA
win XP PRO sp2
Antec sonata (alim 380 w)
and .. echo Gina 20

Perhaps my sound card is too old for one of this new components and i have to stop to experienced ? In this case it will be better with a Gina 24 or 3G ?

Thanks a lot by advance for support me, i'm really out of idea to try.

Have a good day, and whatever, thanks for the excellent sound of your products.

As long as you actually feel hot air blowing out, you should be ok.

I want to update my old computer to a 10/100/1000 ethernet network card, it is currently 10/100. I have a gigabit switch and cat5e throughout the house, and my newer equipment is gigabit. my question, is it as simple as swapping it out for a gigabit ethernet card? Or does the motherboard or chip set have to support it for it to actually work at the higher speeds?

I would like to use this old computer as a file server, but it would be useless if i couldn't get above 10/100.

Any feedback is appreciated, and i apologize if this has already been asked, i looked around and couldn't find it. This is my first time on this forum, just discovered it, seems like a lot of great information.

as long as the OS doesn't have a problem with the new gigabit card, everything should be fine. If you use WOL then you might need to check to see if the BIOS needs an update.

i just found a tip too review the lastest errors that my computer has encountered............ in dealing with all the mess that i've had troubles.... e.g. (mo money(psu)......... mo problems)

anyways... i have about 5 thousand system and application records in the event viewer......... everything from service control manager to save dump to DCOM and workstation errors.......................................................................................................all of which i'm clueless

is that many errors normal...........

oh and they all range within a few days.......... usually only mere seconds apart

A:admin tools/ event viewer???

Fortunately, not all errors in the Event Viewer (EV) are real problems. Actually, many are not problems at all. You can adjust the size of the records that are being held in the EV by right-clicking either Application, Security or System and selecting Properties. You can set the size of each file to keep or clear.

I would like to put this fan on the side window of the case...

Yeah. Basically the fan goes on the inside of your case and the grill on the outside then screw it on and it holds it in place.

Bonjour everyone! First post here, straight from Montreal Canada!

I'd like to have your opinion for my little dillema. I plan on upgrading my computer soon and I'm not sure what CPU to choose. I'm a occasionnal gamer and I want to buy either a Duron 1200 MHz or a Thunderbird 1000MHz since there cheap enough for me and there around the same price.

The Duron has 64 Kb of L2 cache mem while the T-Bird has 256Kb, which I heard is important for 3D frame rate

Is the 200 MHz make up for the lack of cache mem or is L2 cache mem more important for 3D gaming?

Or am I completely lost in this technical mumbo jumbo?


Phelix ze bastard

A:AMD Duron 1200 vs T-Bird 1000

The Duron is similar to a celeron..Low cost, low performance. I would recommend a Tbird any day of the week over a Duron even if the Tbird clock speed is lower. CPU cycles isnt everything. On Die cache, bus speed and die size are all contributing factors to a fast computer..

I use the subscription to It has been greatly helpful. I don't have this analyser but am a big believer in using the Event Viewer. I'll add a description I have written up which will help in determining the Events: This may be useful in addition to the Event Analyzer.

One thing I have not been able to do is keep the filters set with the software in the OS.

Find the Error(s)in the Event Viewer that correspond to the crash/freeze/error message/blue screen, etc.:

Description of the Event Viewer:

Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
3. Errors (red circle w/white X- they document something that didn't work or isn't happening as it should. Each Errors has three parts: an ID#, a Source and a Description. By doing a right click> Properties, the Error will open to a screen that can be copied. These three parts taken together can usually lead to cause and resolution.Click to expand...

Start> Run> type in eventvwr
Do this on each the System and the Applications logs:
1. Click to open the log>
2. Look for the Error>
3 .Right click on the Error> Properties>
4. Click on Copy button, top right, below the down arrow
5. Paste here (Ctrl V)

You can ignore the Categories 1 and 2. If you have a recurring Error with same ID#, same Source and same Description, only one copy is needed. You don't need to include the lines of code in the box below the Description, if any.

Hi, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, and on a daily basis the computer loses signal to the monitor . The event view is Kernal Power Event 41 Critical Crash.
The signal loss happened once a few years ago where I removed the video card and it worked again up until the last few months it has been getting progressively worse, so I got sick of removing the card, so I now find if I shut down the power, it comes good after a while.

- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
