I have XP home my machine will shut down and restart at random stages ithight it was to do ith nero 6 then the cd i was using then the dvd writer itself, i have used a diff dvd writer with same cd and nero6 all works fine now thelas 2 days all i have had in is my harddrive and it has shut down and restarted 3 times whilst i was onlinehave chacked for virus and spyware none to be found any suggestions
This is the error in the event log roughly the time the machine shuts down and restarts:- NVIDIA NDIS IO Control Driver service. I have searched on google the only thing i have come up with is the nvidia dvd decoder which i have downloaded installed and as far as i can see removed will update deiver and check again
If you do download the latest drivers click here do NOT install these drivers yet
Now download driver cleaner pro click here and install
Now uninstall the old nvidia drivers in add/remove programmes. When that is done restart the computer in safe mode (by pressing the F8 key, when at the options, select safe mode).
When in safe mode start drive cleaner pro, now click on the drop down box and select all nvidia files (apart from nforce chipset. Next Click on tools and select Cab Cleaner and clean the cab files. After that is done (and this may take sometime) click on tools again and select SP2.cab and select start.
When cleaning has been carried out restart the computer in Normal mode. Now install the latest graphics drivers
I have down this but not by madboys route i have foun another reason and have cleared the reg file for the nvidia dvd decoder which is as follows here is the whole message from a google response click here issue and poss outcome down left hand side will update again either way cheers for help so far and again if needed
I have unistalled and redone the driver totally and got a new one from nvidia, ok the system has been rectified to a point with the help from the google issue the system is now not bringing the error after using fruit bats advice but is giving me a TCPIP warning but no info to the actual error how can i uninstall and reinstall this like you could with all prev Microsoft O/S before XP Home which i am now using
