I have recently had problems on my laptop, when I have been using the system, it just suddenly hangs up, Yeaterday for instance it just crashed and was unable to (Alt Ctrl Del). I had to power down by the On/Off switch. Today it did the same this time, though it cam up with a: Windows System Error with the following Microsoft Windows detected and recovered from a device failure. Please save your work and reboot to restore to full functionality. What is suddenly causing this to happen????

Any Ideas?

Let us know your win os also check in device manager to see if any conflicts have arisen.
exclamation marks etc.

Have you added anything to your system of late?

Windows Os is XP Home
Checked device manager and all seems OK
Not added anything to system.

Have you installed any software recently (for example, driver updates) that you think might've caused this problem?

The answer to your question is no, not recently,
last thing I did do was an update of Norton Utilities over a month ago.

This problem only occured yesterday and today.

Have you tried systems restore to a checkpoint of
2 days ago.

As nothing that you know of has changed,
may be your best bet.Nothing to lose at all.

If not to sure post back first.
