Random System Shutdowns Without Any Warning Or Error Code


While playing world of warcraft i am experiencing apparently "random" system shutdowns without any warning or error code. This generally happens in areas where there is high activity and probably high demand on my graphics card.

I am running vista 64 bit.
Amd athlon (64) dual core 5200+
4 gb of ram
Nvidia geforce 9500 gt 1gb graphics card

This has only started since latest "patch" from blizzard so am wondering if it is a compatibility problem or graphics card problem.

Warning 1909 And Error Code 2902

I have a program that does an update that give the following

Warning 1909.could not create shortcut logos bible software 4. Lnk. Verify that the destination folder exists and that you can access it.

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2902.

I have done the following
Uninstalled program
Made sure that the program folder was removed under users/app/local/logos4
Rebooted computer
Ran setup from the original cd
Got the same error codes

I am running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on a dell inspiron.

I am not sure what to do at this point. Is there something wrong with the windows installer as this once worked on my system? I have called the company that put i got the software from and they had a bad update that we have tried everything to work around. I am now at a loss.

Random System Hangs / Freezes

I have been banging my head against the wall trying to figure this one out. I am currently running windows 7 x64. At any given moment, the system will hang. Sometimes the system will go days without any issues, sometimes it will hang several times during one day. First the screen will freeze and all open programs become unresponsive, the mouse will continue to move around the screen as normal for about thirty seconds, but this time varies.

If i am watching a video or playing music, the audio will continue without interruption for several minutes, but this time will also vary. The caps lock, scroll lock, and num lock lights will continue to work also, meaning if i press any of the affor mentioned buttons, the light turns on/off like normal. The mouse, keyboard lights, and sound usually continue to work until i click the mouse buttons several times, at which point the system becomes entirely unresponsive.

My first instinct was driver issues. Noticing that the screen froze first, i assumed that the vpu was crashing and failing to recover. After several driver updates and much online research to this end, nothing had changed. I then turned my attention to drivers in general, updating all that i could, this again yielded no results. I then updated my bios and had no luck. Assuming it was not a driver issue, i examined my hardware. I thoroughly tested my hard drives, ram, and monitored loads and temperature on the cpu, vpu, and chipset.

I could not see any trends, the freezes appear to be at complete random. I do have an early amd phenom 9600 with the tlb erratum. I have tried enabling and disabling the patch in the bios
With no change. At this point i do not know what else to check. This is my most powerful pc at the moment, and i have reverted back to xp pro x86. I really like 7 over xp, but the instability in 7 makes it difficult to use for fear of data loss. Xp has no stability issues running on this same system. I have four other pc's which also have windows 7, none of them have had any issues. Some are 64-bit, some are 32-bit, all are stable.

My system specs are below: this is with the system at idle.

Motherboard: gigabyte ma790fx-ds5 motherboard - amd 790fx, socket am2+, atx, audio, pci express 2. 0, crossfirex ready, gigabit lan, s/pdif, usb 2. 0, firewire, serial ata, raid

Error Code - 2 - System Cannot Find The File Specified

Error copying to external drive: error code 2 "system cannot find the file specified" i've been trying to perform a mirror style backup to my external drive of everything in c:users. First of all i tried using robocopy (my preferred tool) with the command line running as administrator and that failed after copying a few hundred files. It came up with error code 2, system cannot find the file specified. I used robocopy c:users h:ackup_win7 /b /m /e /dcopy:t /r:0 /xj

I then tried using the freeware tool fbackup, this also managed to copy a few hundred files before getting stuck in the same way (at a different point).

Finally, i tried picking one set of folders (pictures) and doing a manual copy/paste into the destination directory, this also failed after copying a few hundred files with an error about not finding the file.

The actual files it fails on are nothing special, just regular jpg. If i create a simple test.txt on the drive it works fine. The problem only seems to occur with large numbers of files being copied and where it actually fails seems to depend on which tool i use to copy the files.

Each time this problem occurs my system goes into meltdown with massive cpu usage and then windows won't let me dismount the drive as it insists something is still trying to do something with it.

The only way out is to restart the computer. I've tried running chkdsk /r on the external drive (a seagate freeagent 1tb drive via usb 2) and no errors were found. The drive in question worked perfectly with xp sp3 for several months and has no problems reading from files in windows 7, just this writing issue. I've also tried turning off all services with msconfig, but that just meant that the external drive wouldn't mount at all.

My system is an athlon 64 x2 5600+ running at 2. 9ghz, with 4gb of ddr2 800 on a msi k9n v3 motherboard and an nvidia 8500 gt graphics card. The source disk is a 300gb hitachi sata drive. Overall system performance (aside from this issue) seems very good. I'm using windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, installed from a clean install after xp was previously on the disk.

System Crash Error Code 0xc000000f

I have an emachine with windows 7 home that has crashed. It's giving error code 0xc000000f "boot section failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It says to insert the windows installation disk, restart, and select the repair function. This pc was bought with windows 7 preloaded and there was no installation disk provided. I created a system recovery disk during initial setup on the pc but the system does not recognize it.

System Restore Error Code 0x80070005

Ok, running win7 64bit. Bought a new htc evo phone and was installing htcsync software to sync the phone. Power failure in middle of install. No trace of installed app in program files folder, not anything in unistall apps. When attempting to (re)install app, i get a installer error 1722. Follow instructions in attempts to repair that including running windows installer cleanup utility. Htc app does not appear in that application to clean up. Ok, so i figure i'll just restore to an earlier point. But when attempting to use system restore, i get the error code 0x80070005.

Found that within the forums, but mostly indicating to run software fix on norton's antivirus. I was running avira free anti-virus. Nothing on their website about the fix. So i uninstall avira to see if that would work. No go, same error when attempting to do a system restore. Tried booting in safe mode and obtained a message that i cannot access system restore in safe mode. So here i am, unable to install the application, unable to fix some problem within the win7 installer application, and unable to do a system restore.

Bsod Shutdowns - Memory_management

I've experienced some seemingly random blue screen shutdowns that have different errors displayed in the second line. I know i've seen memory management and irql not less or equal but there were others as well. So far i've taken out each one of my four 2gb ddr2 ram sticks individually and waited to see if a blue screen still appears, and it eventually does. Now i'm at a loss and have no idea what to try next.

Random Corrupt Login Error

Occasionally and more frequently, login will not work properly. I am a genuine 64-bit windows 7 user, and i love the system, but unfortunately i have been running into a recurring problem. I'm sorry that this does not have any specific error messages (i didn't think ahead, and it's not happening now), but these are the symptoms:

- On boot, i get to the login screen just fine, i enter my credentials.

- It says welcome, and then something like "loading your desktop".

- It says something about a corrupted login, then puts me into either:

- A) some weird half-breed of windows 95 and 7, where icons still resemble windows 7, but the taskbar and explorers are grey

- B) this last time, i was logged into a temporary account

- Edit: when i shut down, there is some weird audio feedback

- From then on, if try to log in, an error message about login or profile data not found.

- I usually just restore to an earlier image, and it will work fine.

Unfortunately, this has become more frequent, and i'm wondering what is the culprit. If it is impossible to grasp the situation without further information, i will try to get it. Past searches suggested it was something about the registry.

Random Bsod, Error 0x0000001e

I keep getting the bsod on my pc. It was confined to skyrim only at the start but is now random and not always when i am playing games. The last error was when my wife was on skype. I have updated the graphic card drivers and even tried replacing the monitor as i had an error message about recalibrating the screen. As the monitor was pre windows 7 i blamed that and replaced it. It didn't work.

Security Hole Warning

Hit update on shutdown last night this morning scan shows security hole used my normal software (asc/iorbit) to clean but didn't work-still showing security hole. Posted on asc>iorbit forum and told to do the following: this security hotfix update from microsoft is released to public yesterday to protect the windows users from hackers attacking and remotely coding pcs through shortcuts' icon loading vulnerability.

I would advise to use the windows automatic update or manual update, as even windows 7 oss need restart during installation.

Auto update:
http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/

Most probably your updating couldn't be finalized as it should and that's why is360 security hole is warning.

This is a critical vulnerability and i believe after installing correctly, is360 will not warn you for that anymore. I tried suggestions-here is what happened:1) manual-it said that this does not apply to your computer. 2)automatic update this is the response i get: the website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem. Can anyone tell me the problem. I have been at this for hours.

Warning Product Key Invalid

Right now - literally and after receiving yet another warning of "invalid" win7 bought from amazon. The registration check again reported the software to be invalid. But, out of again, i clicked the option to buy a registration which triggered a search, the result of which was (i'm looking at it right now): "windows validation was successful"

It's the screen with two pretty women looking pleased. Tomorrow this starts all over again on two machines but the difference will be one less day to live. While waiting to post this question, iran the procedure all over again on the nearby laptop - same result. Can anyone explain this? Better still, can anyone ms fix it? Not much fun waking each morning at my age to be told your software has only two weeks to live. That's probably longer than me! Ah well .

Open File Security Warning

Whenever i boot up right after i log in, this open file security warning pops up, and also prevents my dell dock from loading. I have a 64 bit dell inspiron laptop, and have been dealing with this for the past 2 weeks after i have downloaded a video file transfer software, and have been graced with this security warning ever since. I even uninstalled the video software to see if it goes away. It says.

Open file security warning
Name: appdataroamingmicrosoftsvchost.exe
Publisher: unkown
Type: application
From: c:users(my name)appdataroamingmicrosoftsvchost.exe
Then gives me two options to run or cancel

And then it asks me by checking a little box if i want it to always ask before opening this file, but it opens this anyway every time i log into windows when it starts up. This is ridiculously annoying and i am on the verge of giving my one month old dell inspirion laptop to my dog as a chew toy and going out and buying a mac just so i wont have to deal with these ridiculous random security warnings that microsoft has plagued it's consumers with time after time with their operating systems. Can someone please help me before fido chews through the hard drive?

Open File - Security Warning Messages

How can i get rid of those annoying insipid "open file - security warning" messages that drive me nuts every time i execute a program? I've set my user account control to the lowest setting, but those messages still pop up. Isn't there some way to stop them short of opening every program on the computer and un-checking the "always ask before opening this file" box?

Warning Message - Use A High Performance Ac Adapter

Occasionally i get a pop up warning me that to get better performance i should connect to a high performance ac adapter. I click on the "x" to close the pop up and it opens up again within seconds. (Repeat ad nauseam) i found that if i unplug the ac adapter and run the battery down a little before plugging the ac adapter back into the laptop, then this annoying warning message goes away. I can't find a setting to stop this warning from popping up. I'm using the ac adapter that came with the laptop and am satisfied with the power performance. How do i shut off and prevent this unnecessary pop up warning message?

Ati Graphics Warning After Remote Desktop Session

From time to time, i am getting the following wanning message: "the catalyst control center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphic card . Please update your ati graphics driver, or enable your ati adapter using display manager" few things to note:i believe i am getting those messages only after doing remote desktop session of the pc although cannot say that with 100% level of confidence. Am fairly sure those problems started after installing the new sync beta and enable remote desktop of sync. I think it installed some new drivers. Ideas?

Full D Recovery Drive Disk Space Warning

I'm having a somewhat similar problem as a previous poster but. Have a newer computer and i upgraded from vista home premium to w7 home premium . My backup d drive is full . I guess the backup has not removed former backups . Now processing is slower and i worried about a total freeze. I used the disk manager and tried to add space onto my d from c but only ended up with an unallocated partition of 20g's .couldn't figure out how to add to d.

In the previous solution " press a special key combination when the computer starts, you can use the recovery partition to restore the computer to the way it was when it was new. " Would that remove windows 7(don't want to do that" or. Do i have to remove the partitions letters for the d? Would that just make it one big c drive? . Would that effect computers performance? How can i get that unallocated partition back to c . Or to d? Sorry for being so wordy but i could sure use some help.

Win 7 Random Freezing

I have an acer aspire 6930 with intel core 2 duo (t6400 @ 2. 00 ghz), 4. 00 gb of ram, and win 7 32 bit operating system. Originally had vista on it but upgraded in jan to 7. I am also running avg antivirus on here. It was running fine until around the first of march. Then it started freezing up and you have to do a hard restart to get out of it.

It normally happens when i'm using internet explorer 8 but once it froze up a few minutes after i started it (i had no programs opened at that time). This is getting really annoying, i've tried everything i can think of and a bunch of the stuff in the forum. I play games on facebook but that's the only kind of games.

Win7 Random Shutdown

I am using win 7 ultimate 32 bit, upgraded over vista home premium 32 bit. My laptop is randomly shutting down, it never done it while i had vista installed. It is not going in to sleep mode or anything similar, as some have suggested, it completely shuts down with no warning but can be booted up straight away. The only time i can make it happen for sure is when i run the windows experience index, it gets near to the end and then shuts down. I used to be able to run the wei before so i don't know why it does it now.

Any ideas as this is really annoying me?

Pc Random Sound Failure

I bought a brand new intel core i7 860 2. 8ghz , 4gb ddr3 ram, intel whitesburg lga1156 p55, and windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Ever since i got it, the sound randomly disappears, and the only way to get the sound back is to restart the pc. Doesn't matter what im doing, be it skype, playing music, watching movies. Etc. It is also at different times, like sometimes it can take 1 minute to disappear, sometimes 2hrs. The pc has integrated sound, so no separate sound card. This had become beyond irritating i work in i. T, and have tried plenty, but nothing helps. Sound continues to randomly go off.

Random Bsods - Event 41, Task 63

I am experiencing intermittent bsod crashes. The crashes do not correspond to high levels of activity, high operating temperatures or any other pattern that i can perceive. If anything, they occur most frequently shortly (seconds) after bootup or while the system is idle. The system is not overclocked. I have the latest bios available from msi and the latest optical drive, ethernet, gpu, and audio drivers.

(A side note on the ethernet driver. The latest version available from realtek's website is 7. 11. 1127. 2009.microsoft update recommended an update to the driver which i installed on feb. 6. This driver version was 7. 12. 128. 2009. I have experienced bsods with both versions of the driver. Currently i'm running realtek's latest version as i'm unclear how microsoft could have a more up-to-date version than the manufacturer. )

I have already tested the ram using memtest86. I've run in excess of 16 passes without returning any errors. I've also tested the hard drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility and chkdsk /r /f. Hard drive checks out fine. I've stress tested the system using prime95 and seti@home and the system has not shown any tendency to crash during stress testing. I've also run system file checker. It does not return any errors.

I've posted the minidump files here: http://expedientweb.com/bsod-dump.zip

I've posted the event logs here: http://expedientweb.com/event_log.zip

The critical events (which i assume are the bsod events) all run along these lines:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Random Bsod After Upgrading To Win7

I recently upgraded from windows vista home premium to windows 7 pro and have had some problems with random bsod's. I originally installed windows 7 over windows vista and after about 48 hours i would have a bsod with them happening at random time after that point. I thought that it have have been something left behind by the vista install causing the problem, so i re-installed choosing to format the hard drive so that i would have a "clean" install. 48 hours later, bsod with a second one happening less than two hours later.

The problem has not happened while i have been using the computer, just when the computer is unused and in power saver mode (i use the high performance setting offered in windows 7 only i do not power down that hard drives, just the monitor). I thought the problem may have been caused by the motherboard(i am still not sure on this score but. ) So i went to the manufactures website, downloaded and installed the latest bios that was suppose to included windows 7. That was between the original 48 hour bsod and the second today.

I am running and asus m4a78 plus motherboard with an amd phenom 9500 processor and 4 gb ram. The only drivers that i have installed, other than the drivers supplied by the os for devices are for my video card (ati radeon 5750) and printer (hp deskjet d1660) both of which came from the manufactures websites stating that they where for windows 7(i know, can't always trust them). As i have stated, the system has not bsoded on me during use, just when the sytem is unused so it has not been a major issue to this point, but i would like to try to correct the issue before it becomes a major issue.

Random Freezes With Win 7 64-bit

I use to run vista home premium x86 on a acer computer. This summer i downloaded windows 7 rc x86. A month ago i bought all new parts and since i could use 64-bit system now i installed a 64-bit windows 7. Then did the problem start. Every new and then the computer freezes, some days over 30 times. I thought it was hardware problem and tried a lot of hardware finders and nothing helped. I also installed windows 7 rc my mothers laptop (the same version i use to have that work fine) that used to run on vista home basic. But her computer didn't freeze it just got a black screen now and then.

The i started to suspect that it was because it was a beta version so when windows 7 were released i bought two of them a 32-bit and a 64-bit. But the problem didn't go away. It's still there and it's kind of frustrating and even more now when i’m trying to write a essay. I used windows upgrade advisor and it didn't see any problem with an upgrade to windows 7. What can i do?
