Vista 64 bit crashes randomly. Hi end system

IM using an AMD blackbox 3.2 gig cpu, Asus M4A79T Deluxe MB, ATA 4890 GFX card made by MSI and 6 GB of ddr3 ram.  At least 3 to 4 times a week, vista is locked up tight. the cursor move and cant del alt out or anything like that. Only way is a reboot.

This happened once or twice a month. Therefore becomes more often on Corsica for 5 months or more.

Sometimnes I have almost nothing running. Do not since. He is a firecracker of a machine. IM also using Corsican 128 GB SSD for the os. A machine kick in $$. Not a game that won't play on ultra hi.

Any help appreciated.

Hello

Random freezes without stop errors are almost always related to the material. Start by running a diagnostic of the ram, which is integrated or third party like memtest86 or doc-memory. If you are able to exclude from the ram and then check the hard disk with a manufacturer's diagnostic utility. In addition, for devices such as the motherboard, processor and power supply, requires swapping parts checked to isolate the component of the problem.

  • Equim P200: Vista 64 bit freezes randomly

    Hi if someone could help I would be very grateful. I recently bought the p200 equim only to find from time to time it crashes without warning. I can do anything to work on the desktop or browsing the internet where all of a sudden the screen is empty and then I get grey and black lines.

    I then reboot the system where I get the screen mode without failure or normal startup. It of very frustrating and has been like that since the day I bought the thing in March 2008.

    Can anyone advise what could be the cause of the problem and how can I fix...
    I'm starting to get very annoyed with the situation and I was wondering why I never decided to buy this system.

    I installed toshiba tempo alerts and no alerts to date have been consistent with the 64-bit system.

    I guess that this laptop was preinstalled with Vista 32 bit and you have installed the 64 bit version of your own hands. Am I wrong?

    Have you checked if the same problem occurs using the OS preinstalled Toshiba?

    Your description sounds to me like a problem of compatibility of the system maybe some installed applications are not fully compatible with Vista 64 bit.

    However, a malfunction of memory could also be possible
    But as you can see really not easy to say what is causing these accidents

  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit crashing randomly

    I had questions on this for the last month or as well as my 3 year old Dell Inspiron 620 keeps all the few hours of freezing randomly (no BSOD, it freezes and stops responding at the time). I removed a ton of files in the indexing log, which increases performance and put an end to the question for a few weeks, but it's still about an hour he y a. I also ran CCleaner a few weeks ago and the issue was not yet set. In general, my PC will perform very well, and then will just freeze a few hours after the start on certain occasions. If it was scientifically at the gel, I get a "static repetition" playing in my speakers noise.

    Can someone help me on this... I also had problems with the theme on one of the accounts on my PC. On this account, which I use very rarely, I will open it, then a few minutes later windows full size (and the desktop icons) will be moved down almost half a cm, with the screen showing by behind. Then I change the theme of the Aero Basic to see if he can solve the problem, and when moving to the back, the bottom of screen and sounds will update to this theme, but windows will remain in the base style. Why this only happens for this one account? The account is corrupted?

    So is that someone could try and help me with these two issues, in particular the gel that begins to really bother me. Is - fixable without reinstalling Windows? Please try to find a solotuion for the problem of crash... He never used to do, but he's started in the last month or two. I tried the system restore, but there is no point of restoration after a week or two in age.

    Many many people have this problem when I talk to others. Miscrosoft compromises our computers so we would have to buy new ones?
    They know there is a problem and they don't even try to find a solution for this. In this economy, they force people to buy new computers, they will just leave people blocked company becase NOBODY takes the phone, if you do not have email, people don't keep in touch, if you are not on a social network or business networking nobody will know your business, you won't make any money nobody reads the ACTUAL newspapers these days, everybody reads the news on the internet. They only hurt people, they are forcing anyone to buy a new computer, people just can't afford it. Hundreds of thousands of people can barely keep their utilities on. In doing so I wish they will reconsider. I am disabled I will definitely cut if my computer goes down for good.

    Can we do any smell that?

    There are also a lot that I need to run startup until the restoration. Windows restarts after the crash of the blue screen, I reinstalled windows twice, it works fine until I have start to install all updates. I have only installed MSE and it still happens. I lost all my music I paid a lot of money for, my paintings for children, important documents, all because I had to reinstall windows twice now.  I may have to reinstall them once more and I do NOT wish to install the updates again. He really never stops until I installed updates to windows. I thought that if I use the programs from Microsoft that it will work, because after all, it's all done by the same company, but no, nothing works. I am so in the sincere real despair. Be alone without technical skills, hardly what actually on my disability check, now I'm going to cut everyone. Now I can't do ANYTHING without it crashing, nothing fun anyway. I tried Microsoft fix, I tried so many solutions. I paid for Adobe photoshop, because I like to draw things and I'm terrified to install it. I'm afraid to do anything fun or useful on this computer.

    If I can afford a new computer at any time, I think I will try Apple, I lost my trust in Windows. Unless they make an effort to solve this problem, then I would give them a chance again, but not if they will try to help. I'm so frustrated. I spend a lot of money on this computer, it's an ENTERTAINMENT laptop and I get not very amused.

    What is going on?

    Hello

    Could be heat related - try using a small fan to blow into the air intakes to see if that helps.
    It is just like it loses power or stop it in the normal way? Heat associated
    does not necessarily mean excessive heat, it could be something is too sensitive to the same
    normal levels of heat. Also a computer will produce more heat as is pointed out how adding
    software or updates, among other measures, causes it. Of course those actions should not
    cause enough stress or heat to shut down the computer.

    For a laptop on everything that you can do is reinstall the memory and clean the ventilation openings (still may try to add
    a small fan as a test). Of course first remove all power.

    This sounds like material so if the above does not help you then probably need help
    a real computer store (not the leeks and the glances at a Best Buy or other stores) or the
    Support of system Maker.

  • Windows Vista (64-bit) crashes a few minutes after startup is complete. Difficult to get out of the lock start.

    After a Windows updated 12/09/2009 from my computer stopped working.  It starts (without error) and then freeze a few minutes after loading Windows.

    I removed all the updates of Windows since mid-November, but this has not fixed the problem.  I also tried to boot to the last known successful configuration and has followed the procedures of "clean boot upward" found elsewhere on this forum.  None of these actions resulted in necessary corrections.

    Hi lizseh,

    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    I suggest you to restore the system to a previous state where it was working fine and check.

    To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:

    1. click on start toreduce this includes this image, type System Restore in the Search box, and then click System Restore in the programs list. Collapse this includes this image

    2. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click continue.

    3. in the System Restore dialog box, click choose a different restore point, and then click Next.

    4. in the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.

    5. click on Finish.

    The computer restarts and system files and settings are back to the State they were in when the restore point was created.

  • Strange Lag issues on Windows vista 32-bit as well as game slow load time

    OK, this is really starting to annoy me, and I would be very grateful if anyone can solve this problem for me. Well since I had my HP Pavilion Vista 32-Bit seems "randomly Lag" occasionally. For example, I'd be right on the web, and then all the computer slows down as the office. Windows and the programs seem to start to take longer to open. I reccently got a video card Nvidia GTS 250 for the game but still lags. But the strangest thing is that this problem occurs randomly. The problem seems to stop and then "randomly comes back" to happen to my PC. So far, my solution is to leave the computer alone or just leave it turned off. But the other day I left 3 days straight and did not help a bit. It was a month ago, but it was very strange. Now, he seems to be doing more often. (I do not add or download new programs recently)
    It really bothers me, and I stopped buying games for my cause of PC that I rarely have the opportunity to play their cause of this problem. I know I did not describe my great problem but can someone help me please?

  • Windows Vista 32-bit security updates

    After latest updates of Microsoft for Vista, 32-bit security, PC check errors system and restore to the point before the updates.  Tried to make an update at a time and new system get reset before updates.

    Sometimes get no signal TV and the PC crashes and have to make a forced stop.  Get blue screen today and the message that Windows is not shut down normally press on enter to start Windows normally.  Enter the password and repeat.  Started with emergency CD today and then get the same results after execution of diaganostics: a blue screen, start Windows normally, repeat.  Look in safe mode did nothing no more.  It's several days ran disk clean up.  Defrag did not stand because the drive was only 1% framented.

    Has started with an HDMI instead of VGA cable to TV around the same time, this problem started and wonder if I should go back to VGA.  Don't think that could be a problem unless there is something wrong with the video card HDMI port.

    Got a new video card.  Cost not as so much that I would imagine in a local computer store.

    Got to make changes to the settings.

    Now I don't know even if I know how to find the old drivers.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Vista 64-bit update crashed my computer

    My office has a great until last night updated (December 13, 2011) auto Windows Vista 64-bit.  At the stop, I noticed that I had the option 'install updates day and then stop' to highlight.  I chose this option, and he told me that he was installing a large number (12? 16?) of updates.  I left the computer to do its thing.

    This morning, my wife turned on my computer to discover that she was crashing on start.  It is just at the point where it recognizes my Raid 1 profile (has a yellow 'Verify', I noticed), and then gives me the screen error-'Windows doesn't have to correctly install the drivers' or words to that effect.

    I am now trying to 'fix' by booting from my drive to Vista 64.  However, it was posted the same page/message for about 30 minutes now:

    Startup Repair

    Your computer could not start.  Startup Repair is checking your system for problems... etc etc.

    Is there anything wrong with this machine before updates last night.  I use McAfee Anti-virus, which is updated.  Grrr!

    I seems that the Raid array was the issue.  As a final attempt to solve the problem, I physically unplug one of my two hard drives and rebooted.  When restarted, the computer scanned the remaining drive, fixed some data corrupted, then started successfully with Vista.  I reconnected it the reader who then 'checked' himself to another.

    Still and all, it's a real "IN." these updates to Windows for this to a computer running normally.  I can't be the only person in the world running under Vista 64 that has a Raid 1 configuration.  Microsoft needs to do a better job with these updates.

    Thank you for taking the time to help me with my problem.

    Unfortunately, we can not really help with the retrieval of the disks or the manufacturer recovery Partitions - they are the manufacturer and non-Microsoft.  We have not the necessary information on the process of recovery from each manufacturer to be able to help you.  You need to get in touch with Vaio Support technical assistance to this process: http://b2b.sony.com/Solutions/lpage.do?page=/support/business_support.html&name=Support.

    Sorry we can't be more helpful.

    Good luck!

  • Need a Firefox 32 bit for my Vista 64 bit system

    Some web sites will not work with the browser Firefox 64 bit - I want to install a 32-bit version on my Vista 64 bit system.

    Automatic download of Firefox gives me no options, nor there at - it obvious links on the Mozilla site.

    Where can I get the 32-bit version?

    Thank you.

  • get the 0x400110020000100b error code while making the recovery of the system for windows vista 32 bit.

    I tried to do a system restore on my laptop using the included recovery disks and had this error 0x400110020000100B. The drive looked pretty beaten last week so I ordered a new series. Now, when I got to put disc 2 in (to 80% full) I get the same error.  I called customer service and he took me through the process of F9, nothing works and I also tried the F11 approach that made me not the case.  I'm frustrated because I don't really have the money for a new laptop computer.

    Laptop is a HP Pavilion DV6700.

    Any help would appreciated more than you know.

    The system is Windows Vista 32 bit

    The guy on the phone said ' well, you know it's a pretty old computer... Thank you gee...

    Hello:

    See if you can make your own Vista installation disc if you can read the product key 25 character on the bottom of your laptop.

    Here's how:

    If you are in a fault light but rewarding you can do yourself if you can read your product key of Vista on the PC of 25 characters.

    You just download the 3 files you need on the link below and read all the instructions to create a Setup bootable DVD disk using imageburn.

    Do not take into account the part of the text in the first screen shot about "extract the files in the folder of Vista."

    The files were extracted already in this folder when you ran the X14.exe file by reading the text on top of the first screenshot.

    The other thing I noticed is on the 4th page, where it shows Developer ID Microsoft Corporation. I had to type Microsoft Corporation in me, and then other codes already filled in.

    When I went to compile the ISO file, ImageBurn gave a message on a WIM file, file and ISO, and if I wanted to burn it in a different format.

    I selected no, make the ISO file.

    It was not so hard to do. I burned both the disk of 64-bit and 32-bit disk in case I ever need them.

    I tested both of them one my hp dc7100 CMT desktop PC, worked flawlessly.

    When you enter the product key, he knows which version of Vista you have.

    http://en.community.Dell.com/support-forums/software-OS/w/microsoft_os/3317.2-3-Microsoft-Windows-v...

    After you install Vista successfully, you can then install the drivers for your PC and driver page support.

  • My system (Vista 32-bit SP2) tried to install update KB980248 for several weeks, but I keep getting error code 80073712.

    My system (Vista 32-bit SP2) tried to install update KB980248 for several weeks, but I keep getting error code 80073712.  I tried to follow the directions on the site by running the system preparation tool update... did not work.  Then I tried to go back to a restore point and try the update again.  Yet once, didn't. I went back several restore points, but it has always failed.  I don't have an installation DVD, because it came with Vista preloaded.

    Help?

  • System Recovery Options - no operating system listed, need to load the drivers, but don't know where to find this (Windows Vista 64-bit)

    It is a gateway M6866 laptop running Windows Vista 64-bit.

    The computer does not start up--gives "BOOTMRG is missing" error at startup.  I'm trying to boot from the 64-bit of Windows Vista recovery disc.  I clicked on the "repair your computer" option, and it shows the computer loading files.  Then the "System Recovery Options" box appears and asks me to select the operating system to fix it.  The problem is that nothing has listed.  It is said that if your OS is not listed click Load Drivers.  I did, but it is said to insert the device installation media, and then click OK to select the driver.  I clicked on OK and then opens a browser window to select the file.

    I don't know which file I'm supposed to select here.  I searched online for an answer, and someone told him to go to the computer manufacturer's website and download the driver for RAID controller.  I tried to go to the site of the bridge to find it, but it doesn't seem to be one for Vista 64-bit.

    Please please help!  I have to at least be able to extract the files to the hard drive before reinstalling windows.

    Hello

    ·        Have you Configure RAID on the system?

    If you have not configured then RAID on the system, I suggest you to disable the RAID/eSATA (SATA improved) in the BIOS. Once you turn off the RAID/eSATA on the system that your basic hard disk should be recognized by the system because it doesn't require any drivers, it will act as an IDE. Once you have disabled the RAID/eSATA then booting into the recovery environment and build the Bootrec and check if the problem is resolved. I suggest you follow the steps mentioned below to rebuild the bootrec.

    Rebuild the BCD store by using the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows recovery environment. To do this, follow these steps:

    a. get the Vista installation DVD and pop in your drive.

    b. then restart your computer.

    c. press a key when you are prompted.

    d. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then hitNext

    e. click on repair your computer

    f. click the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next

    g. in the System Recovery Options dialog box, click command prompt

    h. type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press the Enter"" key.

    ·        If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation of a Windows directory path. To add the entry in the BCD store, type Yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry has been added successfully.

    ·        If Bootrec cannot findany lack of facilities of Windows, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (remember to press ENTER after each command)
    bcdedit/export C:\BCD_Backup
    Ren c:\boot\bcd BCD.old
    Bootrec /rebuildbcd

    i. restart the computer.

    For more information, see the article mentioned below.
