I know we have had a thread for this before but my problem is slightly different as i do not run any games on my pc. I have noted down the error codes as advised. Please help me resolve this as it has started to happen regularly. Not a pc whizz so please try to be as untechnical as poss.
OK the first part of the message "9c" is hardware so:
1. can you boot into safe mode and does the system stay running in "safe" longer than normal
2. Download and run memtest (for several hours) and advise results. One of the most common causes is RAM problems. If you have 2 sticks also try removing one and trying the system again. If problem still exists try other stick. Can you get hold of another stick from a friend and try that?
