Multiple Programs Crashing


My computer is not even a year old, i bought it about nine months ago, its a hp pavilion dv6 1247cl notebook pc and when i run programs like ie and go to websites such as youtube, the ie crashes. This also happens with a different web browser i downloaded (google chrome) and other programs such as aim and shockwave media player also crash. To fix this problem i have to restart the laptop and it gets really annoying with the work i have to do. I have read other forums and i have tried some of the
Solutions but none that fit my criteria. So if i could get help with this please let me know asap! My brother has the same computer for the exactly same amount of time and he has no errors with his.

Multiple Programs Randomly Freezing

Have had windows 7 installed on a month old laptop, been having the same issue from the start, but was too lazy to fix it. About 70% of the time everything runs smoothly, but every once in awhile this massive ugly bug happens. Youtube won't load, games won't open, some programs don't open. They all freeze up when they're loading. Youtube freezes up ie, when booting up warcraft 3 i get stuck on the black loading screen. Lots of other programs are affected, too. I have no idea why the bug happens, and it just pops up randomly. Can't even seem to find a cause for it.

However, when this bug isn't happening, none of these problems occure. I can't seem to find any relationship between the problems other than they all freeze at the loading screen. Restarting the computer is annoying but usually fixes the problem.

Crashing

I too am having a problem with my internet crashing. And it takes my vista anywhere from 7 to 10 minutes to go through the crashing stage before i can do anything. I don't know how many times i have to re-set my ie8 to get it to stop but it is frustrating for me because i get on here to relax and i can no longer do that. There are enough problems with people being down right rude but when you cant play a game because ur ie8 crashes all the time it gets really frustrating. I wish you would get this problem fixed and soon.

Media Center Crashing

I have a copy of windows 7 professional 64bit installed on my desktop computer here at school. I have been using windows media center to record cable television with my happauge pci-express tv tuner. It worked great for the first month, but then media center began to crash every time i try to scroll to the left or the right through my recorded tv. It has no problems in any of the other menus, but i can't scroll more than a few entries to the left or right in recorded tv before it says "windows media center has stopped working" and then crashes. Help?

Explorer.exe Is Crashing

My system was infected yesterday by one of those fake antivirus programs. Usually i am able to get rid of it fairly easily. I run spybot search and destroy as well as defender. It seemed to have removed the problem. I restarted the computer and now i am having issues. Explorer will not load on it's own. All i get is a black screen with a mouse pointer in the middle. I used alt-ctrl-delete to start the wtm and explorer through it. But i am unable to open any folders.

After clicking on any folder it takes about 30sec for a message to popup stating: "server execution failed". I can start start most programs through wtm, but i want to run the disk check to see if there are errors. Is there anything i can do? Or should i reinstall? I would hate to do that, but if it's the only option.

Live Messenger Keeps Crashing

Wlm keeps crashing even when i try running it, never mind logging on. Every time i click on it, it doesn't open, it just displays a message saying"windows live messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. " And you all know all the stuff it says after that. I tried restarting my pc, which is running windows xp sp3, if that helps. I also tried uninstalling and re-installing the program, twice, and that still didn't help. If anyone could give me advice on how to fix this problem that would be great.

System Crashing / Unresponsive

Okay, so yesterday my computer just froze and went totally unresponsive, after waiting about half a minute it recovered from the crash and continued as normal until it crashed again, this happened several times. One of the crashes caused a bsod and i had to restart my computer, i decided to check the event viewer and i found that at the time of each crash a warning event was shown saying 'request to pd 4 is timeout. ' with the source being a motherboard driver 'mv61xx'. I believe mv61xx is a sata driver for my motherboard, for which there is only one driver available, i have tried reinstalling the driver but that didn't seem to solve the issue. I don't know what else to try, suggestions anyone?

Pc Will Not Shut Down And Explorer Crashing

Hey, so when i try to shut down my computer it just gets stuck on the shutting down screen and i have to switch it off by holding down the power button. I'm fairly sure this is because the system cannot end certain processes but i don't know which ones. At first i thought it was itunes because it wouldn't open but would start a process that wouldn't shut down. Then i got it uninstalled and it hasn't helped. Now the other problem, maybe related? When i right click on the desktop explorer crashes (not ie). It doesn't just shut off but stops responding. For some reason i can still use the taskbar and start menu (i thought that was part of explorer). And my computer is constantly running at 100% cpu usage. Its an hp laptop running windows 7 and has had windows on it for at least a couple months running fine.

Nvidia Driver Crashing Windows

I have a hp dv9000 laptop with nvidia geforce 8600m graphics card. After i installed windows 7 on it, i tried to update it with the latest driver from nvidia website. As soon as the installation is completed, it prompts for a restart and the windows crashes upon restart. I have tried this numerous times and it is consistent every single time. The only option i have is to restore it back and then use the standard vga graphics adapter. Unfortunately, this means that i cannot use it for any games or any of the advanced features. Even at a minimum, i cannot even change the brightness of the screen.

Any help is appreciated, even how to increase the brightness will help. I have already tried fn+f8 and all other hotkey combinations.

Sound Card Crashing On Microphone Use

So basically, i can listen to music on itunes and use sound in any program around, until i began to use my microphone. I can use chat on aim and skype, but the second i start a voice chat with someone, my sound crashes until i restart my computer. I've run both self-help tools from the website, and i can't provide you with what sound card i'm using because 1. ) I forgot where to search. 2. ) When i finally did find it a few times recently, it said no sound card could be found. I know that to be untrue, but how do i go about fixing it?

Bet On Soldier Game Crashing

I have windows vista home basic. The game im having a problem with is bet on soldier. Its compatible with vista so ive been told windows 2000, windows xp. The game will work for about 5 to 10 min. Then it just stopped and i get the little box saying that there is a problem and microsoft will get back to me. The game plays fine up till that moment. I have a nividia 9500gt graphics card and its up to date. I have also tried going back to some older drivers to no avail. I went back to vista cause win 7 was having computability issues with a lot of my games. So far its only this game im having this issue with. Would love some feedback. The maker of the game is no longer in business.

Notebook Keeps Crashing In Normal Mode

Before asking, i'd like to say that i'm not familiar with all the tech terms; i was hoping if someone could just generally tell me what's wrong with my notebook.

So i have an asus eee pc, windows 7 starter. All this time it was working fine, but today when i switched it on, during startup it suddenly crashed and showed this blue screen with stuff written. It was saying something about 'found a problem with the system', and then there was 'system_registry' , 'if this was my first time experiencing this problem then i should reboot' etc etc but i didn't manage to read all of them because it'll quickly show the choose mode screen (safe mode etc) and so the same thing repeats again and again every time. I didn't even managed to get the notebook scanned or anything since it automatically crashes during startup.

What's happening here? Is it a virus or some technical faults i'm not aware of?

Dell Studio Display Driver Crashing

I have had a dell studio 1537 laptop for almost a year now, and i installed windows 7 around christmastime. Since then, i have had trouble running a few of my games that worked perfectly fine before. The screen will go black, and the lappy will freeze for a few moments before returning with a bubble message that says "your display adapter has stopped working and has recovered". The card is the standard integrated mobile intel 45 express chipset and it says my driver is up to date. What to do?

Make Aero Work On System Without Crashing

Is there a way to make aero work on my system without crashing it? I recently upgraded to win7 home premium. Install went smooth, but after logging in i kept getting a range of bsod stop messages at random intervals, including 0x0a, 0x24, 0x50, 0x3b (saw that one a lot), 0x7e, 0x7f. Occasionally they would be preceded by a charming notification that said "display driver stopped responding and has recovered, " but i soon learned that message was only a precursor to imminent failure. Sometimes it would go days without crashing, but other times it wouldn't go five minutes before bsod after bsod. I finally discovered that all my problems went away if i selected a basic (non-aero) desktop theme.

So what gives? I have an onboard graphic adapter, the intel g965 express chipset, which claims it is aero-capable. I have the latest driver for it and dxdiag says it's a wddm 1. 1 driver. Dxdiag also shows i have 358 mb total graphics memory (64mb system, 294mb shared). I'm not a gamer and have not run any graphics-intensive programs since this upgrade. I do like the "aero experience, " but it's causing major instability on my system.

Other system info, if it helps:

Dell xps 210 (model dxc061)
Intel core 2, 2. 4 ghz
2 gb ram

Windows 7 home premium 32-bit*, upgrade version**

*I actually loaded 64-bit first, but with all the crashes i thought maybe that was the problem, so after a couple weeks loaded the 32-bit version and found myself in the same boat as before.
**Technically, i loaded the oem-supplied vista os just long enough to use the windows 7 upgrade disc. I've never actually run with vista, so not sure if this is a problem with "aero" or with "windows 7 aero. " Anyway, i'm very happy with windows 7, and now that i'm not in danger of losing my work at any moment i can go about my business. But i will never be completely satisfied until i understand why my system doesn't support aero, or what i can tweak to make it work.

Continuous Crashing, Failure To Start / Shut Down

I bought a dell inspiron 1545 last august and upgraded it from windows vista to windows 7. Until then, there had been no problems whatsoever. Now, the computer will entirely freeze, programs will crash continuously and it will occasionally will not turn off or will not start. Usually, once i turn the computer on from sleep mode, many programs will not start when i select them, so i'll restart the computer. Once i've clicked shut down, the computer will say "logging off" and will not change from that mode, and i end up being forced to shut down. After that i will start it again and sometimes it will not start, so i keep starting it until it works and then sometimes the desktop will appear in windows 98 style and say it could not find any preferences on my hard drive, or something similar.

Crashing, Bsod, Explorer Stopped Working

Let me just say, i have always been an avid windows and micrsoft supporter. People frequently rag on me because they say mac is so much better and all of that. But i have always stayed true to windows, even through problems on occasion. Sometimes pretty frustrating ones. But i'm sorry, i am seriously considering switching to mac at this point.

My computer is less than a month old. Yet ever since receiving it, windows 7 crashes constantly with blue screens of death. I frequently get the error that windows explorer has stopped working, for instance, as i write this i cannot open the start menu or that error pops up and closes it. Occasionally problems are solved for about an hour by rebooting.

Windows media player no longer works, internet explorer frequently crashes as well. I cannot install certain things such as display drivers without windows giving error messages. Many software's (itunes, a few video games) do not function whatsoever nor do they install.

I tried calling tech support, they're saying that it is not their responsibility, that i have to call the company that built my computer because that company purchased the license to the software that i am using (the windows 7 that is). I have dealt with the manufacturer's customer service and we have tried to fix it, but considering they did not manufacture windows 7 we can only do so much without microsoft. Yet microsoft refuses to assist me. Even after i asked how in the _ the computer manufacturer is supposed to fix microsoft's product. That's like saying to me if i bought the retail copy and installed it myself that i would have to go fix it myself.

This is completely ridiculous, i have no idea how to fix these problems, and nothing tried so far has worked. Apparently i'm a pc and windows 7 as not my idea.

Win 7 Crashing External Hard Drive Indexes

I installed win7 without problems. For the first couple of days it worked great. Then i noticed subdirectories on my external hard drives disappearing.

I have 2 external drives, a 500 gb and a 1 tb partitioned to 2 500gb drives.

This didn't happen all at once. I lost subdirectories on the g drive, and recovered them using ontrack. Then my i drive went and i have to recover them, and now my h drive is going also. They are all ntsf formatted drives.

Is there any way to tell win 7 to scan and rebuild the indexes?

The disks have been checked. There are no bad sectors or errors.

Using the error checking in win 7 recovered the files but created a locked subdir called found. 001. I then had to go into the drive using winxp ( i created a dual os system just for this), recover the subdir found. 001 using ontrack, and then using win 7 i had to go into the recovered subdir, rename everything back to it's original names, and copy it back to the g drive.

This time i'm using ontrack and not the error checking in win 7, hoping that the file names will remain the same.

But this is a reall pain in the a**. Should win 7 be doing this? Is there another fix?

One Pc With Multiple Users

I have one pc with multiple users (with text-based passwords) oneguest account turned on (with a blank-password).

I want to share some files, some folders, and some libraries between different users but exclude guest users. I have not been able to do it with any of the share schemes that seem to always address computers on a network and not multiple users on a single pc.

What tools do i as the administrator use to share selected files, or selected folders, or selected libraries between selected user accounts on the same pc? Everything i tried in the "share" tools seem to fail for some reason that i cannot fathom. The entire set of files was copied over from a failed xp pc to a new windows 7 pc with specific files copied to non-public folders for specific users.

I know how to use the public libraries that all users can see, to include guest.

Multiple Bsod

So as of today i have been getting multiple bsods i have no clue why, it happens when i am doing basic every day things such as browsing the internet, i have not gone anywhere suspicious of malware or anything like that so i do not think that is the case but it may be. Any suggestions? Log below. Additionally the bsod does not look how it should, it has solid black on the sides, i am assuming that is just a change of resolution because the bsod wont go as big as my screen but i could be wrong. If you need any more information please ask.

Multiple Taskbars

This isn't a question, but rather a suggestion for a possible improvement in one of the upcoming sps. It would be fantastic if windows 7 had multiple task bars. I, and many others, use multiple displays. It would be nice to be able to minimize and restore windows in the display they're currently resting in. Not to mention, the window shake thing is nice, but it would also be nice to just clear off the desktop of the active display instead of all the displays.

You know what i mean, windows team?  Make the displays more modular. I'm not complaining, just requesting a minor (to the end user) enhancement to the way the desktop(s) work.

Multiple Monitor Support

I really love windows 7's feature of being able to drag a window to the left or right top half and then the window resizing to that half side. However, with a dual monitor setup, this is impossible to do on the inside halfs of the monitors . I have 2 monitors 1 and 2. On the right half of 1 and left half of 2, i cannot drag and resize to those areas. I can on the left half of 1 and the right half of 2. The above is copied from another post that i could not reply too!  I am curious if there is a planned fix for this?

Problem In Multiple Monitor

I got a really strange problem. I tried few days ago to connect a multimedia projector to my laptop that was working on windows 7 but it showed the display on only the projector and not on my laptop. All attempts to detect external monitor or projector filed. Then i boot the pc again with the projector being plugged out and first tried to detect the projector/external monitor. But it resulted in a very strange thing. Now i cant see on my laptop if i run win 7 normally but under safe mode (and win xp) it shows display.

I can see win 7 display only (not on my laptop) if some external monitor or projector is connected. I tried to select the multiple display option but for me it results in nothing. Help me please and tell what exactly to do i really like this win 7 miss to use it on my laptop.

Multiple Instances Of A Printer

When i converted from vista to 7 a hp5l printer attached to lpt1 showed up as attach to lpt3. I have tried to do an add printer specifying lpt1 but it add an additional instance of the printer attached to lpt3. On a second attempt to ad  the printer it again creates an instance connected to lpt3.

From devices & printers only the 3rd instance appears as  hp5l (copy 2). I can delete the one labeled copy2 but the other two do not show. How can  i delete them and start  over. I know there ar still twom instance since adding an additional one always creates copy 2 and if i run belac advisor it shown two instances of hp5l connected to lpt3.
