I've got problems with Windows 7... It randomly changes to basic colour scheme, and the wireless card is unable to detect any signal from the router. Possible related problems may be that flash keeps crashing on Chrome, which I'm not too bothered about.

Last time it happened I opened task manager, didn't see anything so closed it. However, my PC refused to respond after this - ctrl+alt+del wouldn't work, nor would trying to open the start bar menu. Programs running at the time included Norton AV, ATI CCC, Chrome, GOM player, Boinc manager and steam. After a few seconds a small red patch appeared to the left of my screen.

Going into event viewer shows the following:

Faulting application name: svchost.exe_SysMain, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc3c1
Faulting module name: sysmain.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5be07e

Faulting process id: 0x3f4
Faulting application start time: 0x01cb84eec83f1865

Faulting module path: c:\windows\system32\sysmain.dll

This is followed by about ten driver failures. Any ideas?

  1. First and foremost: Legal copy of Windows? If so, it sounds to me like you have serious driver issues. Display and wireless drivers are very common culprits where crashes are concerned. Make sure all your drivers are up to date.
