Few years back, I was getting an 'system freezing' error that eventually went ok without me doing anything. The mouse, keybord and the whole system stopps responding and sometimes restarts itself, or stays like that for ever.
This happens in very random events that there is no specific action that triggers this reboot.
Now this error has started to happen again. in the event viewer log, it says,
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000101 (0x0000000000000018, 0x0000000000000000,
0xfffff880009b1180, 0x0000000000000004). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 120411-15875-01.
and i must say there is another event that grabbed my attention, but I'm not sure if it is related to this problem. I did a clean windows installation to make sure it is not a OS related problem. but no positive results.
Hi, "Component: PCI Express Root Port " would steer me toward video card or something plugged into PCIe slot. The PCIe bus is a checked bus so bad data is generally caught. Try UNDERCLOCKING your video card and setting fan higher/louder and see if the frequency of problems goes down. Do you have another video card you can swap in? Try removing the card from the slot and then reseating in case you have some corrosion causing problems. Try another video card if you have one. gl.
