Pc Crashes And Automatically Restarts

Original title: pc has become massively unstable when i first installed windows 7 my dell desktop was reinvigorated and ran like a fresh young athlete it woke fast and went back to sleep as quickly.

However this is but a distant memory as my once lithe machine is now nothing more than a grumpy unpredictable demon.

My problems are not measured in days or hours my problems can best be grouped in minutes.

1. The machine will simply re-start sometimes i get a warning more often i do not with absolutely no explanation.

2. Firefox 3. 6 crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

3. Chrome crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

4. Internet explorer crashes normally within minutes of loading; once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

5. Windows desktop manager is either corrupt or just plain angry as it crashes without warning or seeming reason.

Anyone with any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better still a solution will be listened to with my full attention! The sooner the better please as one more week of this and i am going back to xp pro!

Pc Restarts Randomly

Okay so i have a relatively new velocity micro gaming computer that is about 3 weeks old and i have recently been experiencing one big problem. My computer just randomly restarts for no apparent reason (usually when i leave it alone for like half an hour to watch tv or something) and when it starts back up it gives an error message like windows did not shut down properly and it gives me the option to enter safe mode. I am currently running the paid version of norton internet security and i have already scanned my computer for viruses (full scan not quick scan).

In addition i have updated windows with all the recommended settings and updated my nvidia gt 220 video card driver from their website. I have performed all sorts of scans but i don't see any real problem that could be causing it. I am pretty sure it is not power-related because i'm using a good outlet with a surge panel. I also went into my system settings and unchecked the thing that says restart on system failure, but the problem still persists.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb
Gainward geforce gtx 275 896mb physx pci-express 2. 0, 2xdvi
Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Pc Restarts Each Time I Try To Shut Down

I've looked through the forums to see if i could find a solution to this issue, but the most i've been able to find is that there might be an incompatible driver somewhere on my system that's causing this to occur. When i click on "shut down", the computer does shut down, but then it turns back on after a few seconds. I had a clean install of windows 7 ultimate (64-bit)done on the computer to wipe everything off of it and start from scratch, and this still occurs. My computer is an mpc clientpro 424. I've tried disabling automatic restart, and the issue still occurs. Can anyone help?

Automatic Updates Restarts

I have windows 7 with automatic updates on. What really frustrating to me is that whenever i am working on my computer, the windows update decides to restart my computer, terminating all applications without warning or notification to my knowledge. Due to this, my documents in word were closed down without saving and everything i had on the desktop were terminated. It was a force restart and the computer did that automatically without my knowledge. It is very frustrating and i think that whoever designed it this way is not intelligent. This type of design in the system is flawed and should be fixed immediately.

I should have complete control over my computer, not windows having control over me. I should be able to control or postpone the restart, but the computer did not ask me that at all, it just restarted without warning. I am furious by this and would like to know if there is a solution. I switched the settings, now, to "download updates but only i select which to install". Even with the automatic installation of updates settings on, the computer should ask me if i would like to restart now or later, it should not automatically restart. Thank you for your time.

Win7 Restarts On Startup Periodically

Thought it was the motherboard at first, but still sporadically does a restart within a minute or two of starting up, especially if i try to go into firefox or aim within that time frame.

The screen goes black, it says "no signal" then resets.

I check the minidump with windows debug and it comes back as the potential problem being "hardware", so i'm currently getting the replace motherboard checked at asus to see if it was truely a motherboard problem.

I asked a repairman at a local computer store and he suggested to reinstall windows from scratch, and when i mentioned that i upgraded from xp to 7 he said "even microsoft suggests to never upgrade, even from vista". That would not explain the hardware failure though.

Absolutely nothing else goes wrong if it gets past that that 2 minute mark, and the problem seems to be random: sometimes taking 2 days between restarts on startup, all the way to almost a month.

Did memory diagnostic and the memory is fine, hard drive is running fine, i updated the drivers twice on the video card.

This problem seemed to have been prevalent since i upgraded to windows 7, and i fixed up the registry with ccleaner recently.

My system is win 7. I recently got this new notebook. I thought i was having problem with anti-virus but i recently came to know about this blue screen of death.

Win 7 Freezes And Restarts When Transferring Files Through Usb

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

No problems! Where do i need to look for a solution to this. I've noticed other people having the same problem as well (googled it).

Calendar With Automatically Update

There is a calendar in vista, a good thing. I understand about windows live but. Lets see as i see it i have to open sign on to the net just to check my calendar, and have multiple windows open to the net if i want to have my calendar available. Some how i don't see this as a good thing. It would be much easier if you added a calendar to win 7 or better yet copied apple and created one that would automatically update my phone and computer at the same time. The current setup with live forces me to use the net and when the net is down. No calendar. Any suggestions would be welcome?

Folder Automatically Created

Windows automatically creates a folder for my pictures, songs and videos. For example, if i store an image dsc00022.jpg , then windows automatically creates a folder as dsc00022.jpg. Files

If i delete this folder, then it comes back again after sometime or restart. The contents of the folder are usually thumbnails with filename as vcm_s_kf_m160_160x120 etc. The folders created for music and videos are empty.

Screen Resolution Changes Automatically

I've just installed windows 7 home premium in my toshiba satellite m200 notebook 2 weeks ago. And it seems i have a problem with my vga (mobile intel 965 express chipset family). Sometimes when i'm trying to boot my notebook and windows shows login screen, my screen resolution changes to lower resolution. After login, problem remains the same plus windows disable aero function. But if i restart my notebook, the problem's gone. It seems windows failed to load vga driver when booting.

I already re-installing the vga driver (got 8. 15. 10. 1912 version from windows update), also installing intel's newest driver yesterday (8. 15. 10. 1930) but have the same problem this morning. I never had this problem with windows vista.

In addition, in my startup program, i only load 5 applications : kaspersky av, hd audio control panel, and 3 intel's program (keyboard shortcut, tray icon and screen resolution utility).

Internet Automatically Shut Off If Not In Use

I've been encountering internet access problem. If i did not access internet for at least 2 or 3 minutes, my laptop won't connect to the internet. So i have to reboot my laptop everytime i want to access the internet and making sure everytime there is a data transfer through the browser so that the internet won't shut off. The weird thing is that my windows live-messenger keeps connecting to the internet. But if i ever close it and try to reconnect, it won't connect again if the internet has been shut off. This has happened ever since i installed windows 7 to my laptop. My wireless access point has no problem.

Aero Is Automatically Disabling With 4 Monitors

Should be able to run anything, no sweat. But when i try to hook up 4 monitors windows aero automatically disables with the error message: "the color scheme has been changed to windows basic - the current color scheme has exceeded its allowed memory so the color scheme has been automatically changed to improve performance. "

How do i allocate more memory?
How do i stop it auto disabling?

I don't want to be told that it's because my graphics cards arn't good enough cause aero works fine on them independently. Here's my machine:

I7 920
Geforce gtx 275
Geforce gt9800
12gb ddr3

Stop Receiving Ms Updates Automatically

My computer is set to receive ms updates automatically. Recently, these do not seem to download & install like they used to ? I now have 4 downloads that keep not installing when i try to do it, why won't they install ? Even when i shut down, it says it's installing them but doesn't, they 'fail'

Kb 974561 word
Kb 973704 security update for office
Kb 973593 security update for excel
Kb 976416 info path (?)

I believe there is a way to do it manually but don't have the expertise.

Automatically Login On User Account

I have my main user account and two other rarely used accounts for my niece and nephew. When i boot my computer, it stops on the login screen where i have to manually choose my main user account to continue. So, i was wondering. Is there a way i can set it so my main user account is automatically chosen every time, without having to manually choose it, so i can boot computer, walk away, and come back with my full desktop loaded? I have looked through mounds of forum threads, help topics, and all the user account settings i can find.

Automatically Answer Certain Fax Numbers

I setup my laptop to send/receive faxes just for those times where i might need to send a fax and i don't have time to run anywhere. However at the moment my fax number along with my home phone number are exactly the same, what i would like to do is to have contacts with fax numbers and be able to select which ones to automatically answer if they call. This way i don't have to worry about certain faxes from people and also not have issues if someone calls to talk to me and for it to go to the answering machine.

I know this isn't the ideal situation but i don't want to get a separate line just for 1 or 2 faxes every month.

Programs Minimized Automatically After Starting

Shrinking programs. Virtually every program i open or download, minimizes itself to the taskbar after 1 or 2 seconds. The only way to continue install, or use, for example notepad, is to minimize every other open program. Then the one i need stays on desktop. I just had to re-format and everything is just about where i need it to be. I know i am not only person with this problem. Lots have same problem with games just stopping and going to taskbar (does not happen to me), and similar problem. Some have fixed it by taking out avg (don't have that). Wish i knew when or if i installed a prog that caused this mess.

Running win7 64bit (doesn't help) home prem.amd phenom2 x4 9404gb dual channel g_skill9800 nvidia gt 9800(it's really hard to minimize everything to look at cpu-z to see what i have)i had the below installed before prob started. I know what your thinking. Yeah, i've been burned. Ok, i'm paranoid. I also run online scanners when i have no other life. Norton suite, free from comcast threat fire super anti spyware microsoft security essentials. The ms essentials is latest and free.

Recommendations i've done the intermediate knowledge thing, i think it's a ms issue, but? Even uninstalled some nothing program recommended by a frenchman. Actually helped for day or two. Please, if u know anything, i'll send you, uh, something. 'puter useless at this point.

Url Links Change To Ip Address Automatically

I don't know if this has to specifically deal with ie8 but ever since i've installed it i have had this problem: i use the yahoo im program and it seems every time i copy a url from the ie address bar and paste it into the im window, it looks like it should on my end but on the other person's end, it shows up as an ip address.

I type/copy&paste:  
Changes to on my im buddy's screen: http://98. 21. 74. 97/en/us/default.aspx

It has happened to 3 other people i've sent url links too so it can't be them. Anyone have any ideas as to why it is doing this? If it helps, i am using windows xp complete with all the updates, ie8 and have a netgear wpn824 v3 router. My friend told me to mention his default browser is firefox.
