My PC just crashed. This was an old problem that seems to keep reemerging at random times. It just turns off, no error message and no reboot. It just stops. Any suggestions?
I can post my Event viewer log for the last hour if you need it. I can also post specs if you think it will help, but I have replaced nearly every piece of hardware on this computer and it still does it.
My RAM is stock, never touched the voltages, the only thing OCed is the CPU, I don't remember the actual voltage I have it at but it's .05 or so higher than default I think. Also the problem existed before I even go my current CPU.
I'm thinking it has to be software related, It seems to show up last maybe a week or two, constantly turning the PC off every few hours then it's gone for a month or so and comes back. But I've done formats and reinstall and it still happens...
So when you say it shuts down, I'm picturing it powering off like someone pulled the plug. Is it like that, or is it as if someone pressed the power button on the front of the case and it goes through the normal shutdown.
See, the reason I have been operating on a fresh install of Vista is that last weekend (the 19th) my computer froze and when I rebooted it had said that my System 32 files where damaged. So I reinstalled.
Now, just this morning it happened again. I'm thinking that it has to be my HDD. Is there any way I can check this. Other than chkdsk?
I just looked at the specs for your memory and it shows 2.2V
Most Mbs default to 1.8V
I would suggest getting that set before any more trouble shooting occurs as it can cause a lot of problems.
I cant say for sure if it is your problem but it is sure worth a try.
