Recently installed AOL 8.0 running broadband through the BT voyager modem (mistake!) and ever since my browser keeps crashing after about 15 minuites online, just freezes up and loses connection. Once it has been shut down, the entire system runs very slowly, AOL will not restart and after another 5-7 minuites the computer just turns itself off.
Upon restarting, a message is displayed saying 'system recovered from serious error', and the information provided by microsoft seems to be implying that this is to do with an error in my video display. Running GeForce with the latest drivers, and cannot see any problem with the setup. And why would this crash my browser?
Was infected with the blaster worm a month or so back, but this was removed and AVG can't find anything else. Ad-aware has also removed everything it can find.
If anyone has any ideas on how to solve this, i will be very appreciative indeed.
Had this hassle, on my system it was caused by the optical mouse overloading the USB port at boot up. Got a USB hub powered by a wall wart, plugged mouse into it and hey presto! no more 'serious errors'.
I recently had a major modem problem, which resulted in my ISP replacing the original modem for another make/model. Apparently the original supplied modem had a problem with a 'known' fault via my motherboard chipset and usb supply!.
