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:XFX HD 4850 clicking noise, High temp and then PC crashes

I'm having a bit of trouble following (more than likely my fault). What is the GPU fan speed during load?

If the RPM's seem normal, it could be thermal bond in the thermal paste that is broken.
If the fan speed doesn't appear to be normal, the fan itself could be broken.

A:New parts causing crashes

Put your old RAM back in, see if the problem goes away. (Alternatively, run memtest86+ overnight)

Based on what you said, it will be much quicker to swap the RAM back and run Prime95.

I have a lenovo laptop. My laptop suddenly crashes . If it is not used for 1 week and then turned on,it works fine for 2 hours. If we turn on the laptop the next day ,it starts crashing with in 10-15 mins after turning on.
Please help me with this ...

A:Laptop Crashes

There could a list of things causing this. Overheating, Os corrupt, Conflicts in software., Bad battery and so forth. The best way to know if you are not sure is to have a local computer shop check it out. Or try running it in safe mode . If it will and run some test on it. Such as a software to check its temps. A good spyware program to check your os. Also a program to check the hard drive.

A few months ago my computer started crashing when playing games. The screen would turn either black, white, (or once pink), the fan/fans would max out, and the audio would just change to a loud buzzing sound. This would continue until the laptop was turned off.
Around that time, one of my hard drives was failing. We thought, seeing as it fitted so well, that it was the problem. I've just had the hard drives replaced, and while it was running perfectly for a few days, it has now started to crash again, and far more frequently. Most of the time just after the desktop loads.

I'm currently running in safe mode, and that's perfectly fine. No crashing.
I've tried disabling my audio drivers, and rolling back my video card driver, but with no success. I'm assuming that as safe mode has no problems that it must relate to a driver, or, some software, but I have no real clue what I'm talking about.

My video card is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M, if that's important. No idea what other information to include. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

A:Hard drive crashes caused by motherboard?

they have bad sectors and failed SMART.Click to expand...

S.M.A.R.T. is enabled in the HD firmware. Failures at that level are purely hardware related. Such failures create bad sectors.

Q.E.D.:- the drive is just cr*p.

IMO, the motherboard could never create a HD failure - - while software can do so as well as bad user procedures
(eg sharing r/w a folded and two or more users opening the same file at the same time).
Bad disk drivers would easily be a contributor too.

A:Games crashes and others not

Have you checked your GPU temps? It may be overheating while you play some games. Temperatures above 90 C or so under load would be worrisome. Also, a 500 watt PSU is not very much for a GTX 285. Nvidia recommends at least 550 watts.

I have a gateway laptop with windows vista. Sometimes when I plug in my printer a USB port the computer crashes. Then I have to take out the battery and put it back in to start it up again. It seems to do this more when I have my wireless mouse plugged in but still does it when no other devices are in use. Most of the posts I've seen are crash and automatic reboot. Not me! Any ideas?

A:Computer crashes when plugging in printer with no reboot

Sounds like drivers. particularly USB but it could also be motherboard USB controller drivers as well. Do you get Blue Screens? Do you have the latest drivers from Gateway installed for your particular model? Do you have Vista's latest Service Pack and drivers updated?

If not do so.

Hey there everyone on TechSpot...

Recently I upgraded from a Geforce 6800 GS to an ATI Radeon HD3850 (both AGP)
After having carefully followed all the steps required to install a new graphics card
(i.e. deleting of old drivers, installing the new ones etc.) I still get an error. In particular this one: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

I even contacted the manufacturer of the card (Sapphire) but they weren't of much help, giving me a constant list to do things that I had already done.

I uploaded the latest 2 minidumps that were created from the crashes to (possibly) help solve the issue. (edit) I also uploaded my dxdiag, in case my other system specs are gonna be requested.

When you changed motherboards did you re-use the old hard drive? If so, did you reinstall Windows or perform a Windows repair? If neither, then try a repair first. If that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall Windows from scratch.

Basically I have a wnda3100 usb wireless adapter from netgear. The adapter has performed very nicely and just recently to take advantage of the wireless N, I upgraded my wireless router from a G to an N.

The problem that I have is that now when I try and use a torrent of any kind, the card will work for say 5 min then just suddenly disappear. Windows reports that there is a driver issue, but nothing more. In order to get things back up and running I have to physically unplug the usb and replug it back in.

I do find it coincidental that this all started to happen when I upgraded my router to an N router. But whats weird is that the problem is with my adapter. I have tried upgrading my drivers, with still no avail and there doesnt appear to be anything in my event logs.

If it's only a month old and continually crashes, I would be taking it back under warranty, get a replacement. But, does it crash as soon as you are into Windows desktop, or when you open a certain program, or when you try to get on the net?
Does it do the same thing every time, or does it run well sometimes? You can't go checking inside for faulty parts, or your warranty will be void. Tricky.

Hi, i have a toshiba l300d satellite computer, however It keeps on Crashing at random times "when i mean crashing it as if someone was holding the turn on button" {when there is not} and when i try to turn it on again it will crash again

The only way i can stop this is if i leave it for 30 minuites or so and come back and then restart it, i have checked on many websites and rang toshiba but they could not help me.

If anyone could help please reply

Also when i first purchased the computer the battery lasted for 2 hours or so, and in the last year or so it has been maxed to 15 minuites on its battery i am not sure if this is linked to it but i dont really mind the small battery problem but anyways thankyou.
(also this is a problem with the computer to it is slow o.0)

A:My laptop crashes randomly and often

Shutting down after some period of use could be related to heat. The fact that it comes on after sitting for 30 minutes also points to a heat issue.

The battery life could be normal, rechargeable batteries lose the ability to hold a full charge after so many recharge cycles. You may just need to replace the battery.

A few days later it was working fine, though it was saying I had a media failure, but started up an ran.

Last night while playing WoW it crashed completely and when I power on, the fan starts, then it clicks and powers off. Absolutely nothing happens.

I assume the motherboard is bad? Or could the HD cause this?

I've already ordered a new laptop, but was hoping I could salvage this one.

Thanks for any advice!

A:Laptop crashes instantly upon boot

you may be able to recover the hard drive, or your data, after your new system arrives.

i would suggest removing the hard-drive from the system,
then try to boot with your xp disk in the cd.

if you are able to get to the installation screens, then you know your hd was causing the problem.
If you are unable to get there, then you know that you have further problems than the hd.

The hd, can be checked by installing to a usb device (like a usb enclosure, which may or may not work) or more likely a device like apricorn's drive-wire! This will allow you to recover your data at least.

Here are my computer specs:
- CPU: AMD Phenom x4 9750
-Ram: 8 GB
-Hard drive: 750 GB
-Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9100 integrated graphics.
- PSU: 250 watt

I play video games fine on my computer, usually around 30 FPS. But sometimes, my FPS will drop to around 2 FPS, and stay like that for about 2 minutes, then return to normal. During this, my computer runs very slow. Does anyone know why it's doing this? (This just started recently. I've had my computer for about a year.)

A:Sudden crashes when playing video games

Totally wrong power supply for the equipment listed...
Have you tried just trading out the power supply for one with over 500 watts and good connectors, for a short test?

Depending on the brand and model of the 750 GB hdd, that could be contributing to the problem...

The CPU and the graphics card will also have peformance sufferance with that power supply

When you replace it, get a first class, decent one... from the many posts here on techspot... There are about 10 brands that are good and 80 that are bad.

What are the idle temps on your system?

I assume you have all the latest drivers installed for the GTS 250. It does look like a heat issue. Have you actually seen the PC working properly at your builder's? Also, since you've had the machine for 2 months, did the issues occur earlier or just recently?

A:Computer crashes during gaming

First thing I would do is set the RAM voltage and timings to what the factory spec is... should be a sticker on the side with this information. I usually don't rely on the "Auto" setting; it's better to put in the information manually.

There have been reports of the 5770 acting up but make sure you have unlocked the manual fan controls if you are using CCC (Catalyst Control Center) and adjust the speed before playing a demanding 3D application. I would also advise to install the latest C++ Redistributable Runtime libraries and make sure DX11 is up to date. I've had my share of freeze ups with games under Win7x64 and installing prerequisite software has helped for the most part.

I also want to bring up that if you have nvidia Physx installed (still required for some games even with an ATI card) you want to make sure that is up to date too. Some ATI users have reported some issues with outdated physx engines which is why i bring that up.

You aren't going to be able to replace your video card.

Yep ok.

Please help, i don't know what's wrong.

Check power connector of the fan; it may be loose or something; also clear out any dust there may be.

If the fan still doesn't work the way it should, you will need to get it replaced.

Well I have few suggestions for you:

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

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

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

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

A:Continuous computer crashes

Motherboard is a possibility, as are Power Supply, CPU or even memory issues.
I see you have tried different combinations with your memory:
Have you tried removing one of your ram sticks (leave only one in the machine) to run Memtest?
Have you checked pc health stats (Temps and Voltages)? Your bios may have settings to do this.
You say that you upgraded to a faster cpu... if you are overclocking it, you may be pushing the MB past its limits.

Route44 or one of the others may have further insights.

Have you checked the gpu temps, these can commonly cause crashes. Download something like evga precision and you can check the temps of the card.

How is the case airflow, the card doesnt cause a whole lot of heat, but if your case is cramped with not much airflow it can cause your system to constatly shutdown or crash as you call it.

Hi everyone; I have a dell D630 that I started having problems with about 2 months ago, in the middle of normal functions vertical rows of small green bricks would appear, followed shortly by a crash. Then, I can power it back up but the screen will remain black. It lights up, the pixels are obviously functioning but it is black. Every once in a while it will work again but only for about 1-5 min and the green lines will come back.

This happened shortly after I had it outside during a construction project where it may have gotten some dust in it or something... I am guessing this is relevant?

I have tried blowing everything with a little keyboard cleaner air can, but that is all.

Any help would be great.

I am familiar with your computer. Based on what we see in our shop, I suspect the problem may be inadequate memory capacity.
I am sure you didn't mean to report the memory as 182 GB vs 200 GB as that would be an enormous amount.
I suggest you download and run the free Belarc Advisor or Everest Home. Either program will inventory your computer and tell you what working memory it finds.
Tell us what the inventory says.
If you have less than 512 MB, you simply do not have enough memory for that machine. If you have more than 1 GB, then memory is OK, and we must look elsewhere.
Even though your return privilege is up, you still have warranty rights.

But whatever the cause, I would use download AVG Free Antivirus and free antispyware. Then remove the free 90 day version of McAfee Security, using Add and Remove Software in the Control Panel. Once McAfee is removed, install the AVG software. It is free, and very good, and will not abuse resources the way your McAfee does.

A:PC crashes regularly

hello robowen...
I have read your note, and I started to look at your report... I will review the minidumps for what may be learned there.
Meanwhile, here is what I am noticing...
First... the temps of your CPU and Mainboard look to me to be on the high side...
You may want to research what the acceptable temps are for your board and cpu... (You may be okay... I just thought it worth looking at). I rethought this part of my note after the Minidumps.

More importantly, at this point is what you tell us in the your note... You did have malware. You paid to have it removed.
Unfortunately, we do not know (and unless they told you, neither do you) exactly how thorough this cleanup was.
I would strongly suggest going to the Virus and Malware section...
read the three stickies at the top and then follow the eight steps...

While you are getting started there, I will review your minidumps.
If you run into trouble, or find virus/malware with the 8 steps, start a new thread there.
Make note of it here, so we know what you are doing.

Additional Analysis:
Because the the information below, I am going to strongly suggest checking temps! You may have a cooling issue.
But... the fact remains that Virus or Malware may be causing problems too! I think this especially likely since Zonealarm and Firefox are implicated in your dumps, suggesting that Malware is causing them to misbehave.
So, I stand by my initial recommendations.

Minidump analysis....

Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to read this.

We have a Network running on a WRT-110, fairly new router and, at times, 4 laptops all Vista. Any 1 laptop can connect no problem to the network. As soon as any of the other laptops attempt to join the network, the entire network crashes.

Thanks in advance.

A:If more than one connect, network crashes

Well I'm pretty good but not that good. At least until I graduate Physic school!

More info/details?

What have you done to attempt a fix?

Do you have any wired computers, like a server?

How do you confirm entire network crashed condition?

Are you positive it is not just one computer?

And what do you mean by connect? Just the act of finding available networks, or that works and it happens when trying to connect to a Shared folder, or all works until someone tries to connect to the Internet!

A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues. Check Event Viewer (EventVwr.msc) for additional information.

As you can tell the causes of this error are very diverse which makes it a difficult one, sometimes, to pin down. For clarification, are your BSODs only while doing 3d gaming? What about video card heat checks?

Firstly make sure you have the latest nvidia driver... 182.08 at time of writing this.
Does your power supply have a dedicated pci-e feed or are you using the 2 molex to pci-e adapter?
If you are using the molex adapter try connecting them to different feeds from the psu. Low power getting to the card can cause your symptoms...

A:Computer crashes during games

Read the links in my sig for starters. Generally when a 3D game crashes a PC, it's either poor PSU or overheating. It can also be HDD or RAM failures but then these would show up randomly anytime.

Post back with your system specs, mobo, CPU, video card, PSU and the amps on 12 and 5V rails. You can get the amp info off the PSU label. See the pic example in my sig LABEL. For your other specs you dwnload CPU-Z

I have a 3 month old 9500 GT that started just this past Monday giving me fuzzy windows on one of my dual monitors. It seems to only give the fuzzy screen on whatever window I have the extended desktop on. The fuzzy screen only happens when the video card is on its highest setting of (1680 x1050) for both screens, however, if I change the extended desktop setting to a smaller resolution the problem goes away. I have updated the drivers to NVIDIA's latest driver but it didn't fix the problem. I am using VGA cables which shouldn't be a problem since it worked for three months. I checked the cables and the monitors on different machines and they all work fine. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

Hi guys.
Basic problem is that my computer freezes every time i start a game. I'm assuming this has something to do with the video card.

My steps so far have been to format my HD and re-install windows vista. I have not connected to the internet since re-installing windows so I am almost certain I have no viruses.

The problem occurred whilst playing a game, the computer froze and was totally non-responsive - even to ctrl+alt+del.

Sometimes when I switch it on, it loads up until the login screen which stays blank.
I have found that I can start it up successfully in safe mode.

My specs are as followed:

Manufacturer: Dell Inspiron 531
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.81 ghz
RAM: 3582mb
System type: 32-bit OS
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS
OS: Vista Home Premium

A:Computer crashes by itself

Almost certainly a hardware issue. And I'm smiling to myself as I write this because this fits into the cliche'd response of it probably being your PSU or the RAM. Based on your electrical comments I would guess it is the power supply.

To eliminate the RAM, or at least attempt to, you can download and burn a memtest iso, then boot from that and run it several passes. If it can't make it a pass without freezing (but no memtest errors) I would say there is a 95% chance it is your PSU.

Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.

I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.

After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.

Wow. I really have to congratulate you on everything you've done so far... and your patience. I suppose one of the only options remaining is to test the video card in another pc if you can. Also, I don't know if you can but if you could find out how hot the card itself is running that might help too. You've tried almost everything else... I'm thinking the same thing as you at the moment

I have a problem with my computer... first, here is my pc:

AMD Phenom x4 9600 Processor
2X2GB A-DATA VITESTA Extreme 1066

The ram is new.. i used to have 1x2GB Kingston @667Mhz and everything worked fine.
When I changed the RAM, i started getting random blue screens and crashes.
Windows only detects 3.25GB of RAM. But i already read why that happens.

I tried removing 1 stick of RAM and i haven't got any blue screens but games just randomly crash.
I don't know if there is any other info i should provide.
Can anyone help me with this?

A:Blue screen crashes (during defrag) at stock speeds

Shortly after I made my first post, I set the "Errata 94 Enhancement" option from Disabled to Auto. I was 99% sure that errata 94 didn't affect my processor, but I went for longer than two weeks without a hitch. Unfortunately, I crashed again last night. I was browsing in Firefox with maybe half a dozen tabs open and Diskeeper (10 Professional Premier build 608) was defragging, but my computer was not under any other load. My mouse responded sluggishly for a second, my screen froze for a few seconds, and then the blue screen appeared.

I got the exact same stop code that I posted above and that I've received several times in the past. I still don't have a dump file even though the blue screen said "beginning dump of physical memory." I turned off my monitor, went to bed, and when I woke up the drive indicator light was still on and the screen still said "beginning dump of physical memory." I have Windows set to only make a small, 128K dump -there's no way that should have taken all night- so I finally reset my computer.and when Windows loaded there was no .dmp file anywhere to be found.

Any help in diagnosing why my computer is crashing or why it isn't writing a memory dump will still be greatly appreciated.

Got the 4870 and it seems like an excellent card... the problem I'm having is the card crashes whenever I play UT2K4. The crashes are pretty bad to... crashes results in alot of gibberish around my screen... different colors with letters and numbers everywhere. Whats strange is that it doesn't do this in other games. Just ut2k4. I had a 7900GS video card installed the first time. I used the add/remove to remove the drivers and installed in the ATI drivers. Could it be that some NV drivers that are still lurking in my system could be causing the crashes? Perhaps a full reinstall of xp is needed.

Hey guys.....i have taken my friends labtop in for technical support.......i have been trying to troubleshoot the issue and this is what happens........After workin on the pc for some time id say maybe 25 mins......i notice the computer just shuts off and dies.
When i try rebooting the computer, It will not detect the hard drive at all......and it just stays at a black screen and doesnt go any further......Im suspecting that maybe his hard drive is pretty mangled or his motherboard is starting to go.

Could someone give me a heads up on this matter.......Thanks for your time guys do great work here !!

A:Going to build my first pc in a month or two...

Looks decent.

* You can get the video card cheaper if you don't need that exact one. The 9600GTs should be able to be found for ~$130 on Newegg.

* That power supply isn't very good. Look at Corsair's 650W single rail one, or any 475W or above from brands like Enermax, Antec, PC Power&Cooling...

* Probably not worth your money for that CPU cooler. Since you are looking at a Retail CPU it will come with a stock heatsink and fan which will probably be about the same performance as that Rosewill one. If you aren't going to overclock you can get by with the stock heatsink and fan just fine. If you are going to overclock you'll want a better one than the Rosewill.

* I've had a case like that (2 actually) with the rear exhaust fan area being really 2 levels (see here) and its more difficult than it should be to put in a fan because you can't actually hold the screw while you are putting it through 2 of the holes. Its not a HUGE deal, and it can be done, its just harder than I'd like. I would suggest considering any of the tool less cases (which really only mean you don't screw in hds and cd drives) they are much better to work with. The price is slightly higher, but I saved you $20 on the HSF, so maybe look at something like this. Shipping on those things is outrageous, but occationally they will do free shipping, so be on the look out for that. Also if you order from Newegg, they don't charge you shipping for each individual part and add them up, they charge for what it costs to ship them all together. So if you are going to order a case without free shipping it will save you some money overall if you order several other parts at the same time.

Check that you're running the RAM at the correct voltage. You're getting a lot of memory errors.

hi i have an older system and since my graphic card died I have bought an old radeon pro card I am using normally linux where I had no problems with the Then I have tried to install windows which ended always in a frozen black screen after the winlogo when I installed the drivers but works on vga mode So i tried different drivers but none has worked Then I tried to use d games in linux to check if the card is ok It crashes also in linux when I open a d windows 9800 crashes pro Ati problem, application The glxgears command which shows d gears turning and shows the d works in a small window but crashes in a bigger window So is it possible that the d acceleration is somehow defect but works with d and small d windows or is it a overheating problem Or is it the PSU which is also a new one with W Thanks in advance andro nbsp

A:Ati 9800 pro problem, windows crashes

The card simply may be defective
