Does anyone know why my home made PC shuts down for no reason? I have been using it for a couple of years with no problems, however I have come across a problem: whilst I am watching WMV files and maybe have IE open at the same time the machine just shuts down and then reboots. When I log back in, windows tells me that the machine has recovered from a serious error and gives me an error report.
The numbers in this report dont mean anything to me and wondered if anyone could help?
The spec for my machine is as follows: XP 2600 (2.03GHz) 2GB RAM FX5900 GPU 450GB HDD MSI 6590 MB Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 All updated with current drivers and BIOS
Hi Jaz1, Run 'Hijackthis' available from past PCA cover discs, or Google for it, and submit the log which is produced to a malware forum such as click here or click here PCA's very own.
CCleaner has a button captioned 'Issues'. Pressing it produces a screen with an 'Analyse' button. Press it and it produces a list of possible conflicts and a 'Fix Issues' button. Pressing it produces a box with prompts to clear the conflicts.
There is an online system analyser at click here and two good free ones for download at click here (Highly recommended, tho' it's got the odd name of Everesthome 151) and at click here. These should show up any memory problems. Good luck.
