No viruses, but I THINK I FOUND THE PROBLEM... What do you guys think please? MEMTEST IS OK. But...
Check out my 3V and 12V power supplies! Ooops - no more $300 ACER computers after THIS! I think I will make one last chgeck with my harware digital volt meter to confirm, but this REALLY sucks.
Hardware monitor ITE IT87
Voltage 0 1.65 Volts [0x67] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1 2.50 Volts [0x9C] (VIN1)
Voltage 2 1.98 Volts [0x7C] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3 4.95 Volts [0xB8] (+5V)
Voltage 4 10.11 Volts [0x9E] (+12V)
Voltage 5 -4.35 Volts [0x44] (-12V)
Voltage 6 -5.12 Volts [0x50] (-5V)
Voltage 7 5.00 Volts [0xBA] (+5V VCCH)
Voltage 8 3.07 Volts [0xC0] (VBAT)
Temperature 0 55°C (130°F) [0x37] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 2 15°C (58°F) [0xF] (TMPIN2)
Fan 0 2003 RPM [0x151] (FANIN0)
Fan PWM 0 0 pc [0x0] (FANPWM0)
Fan PWM 1 38 pc [0x30] (FANPWM1)
Fan PWM 2 0 pc [0x0] (FANPWM2)
Well that hardware monitor program (Cpuid Hardware Monitor) does not work correctly.
I almost bought a new power supply for much dinero BUT I first tried my digital voltmeter, and found that there is nothing wrong. The software is not reading the voltages correctly.
I have since been through a number of measures and did a restore point, and it has not crashed as much lately.
I did run MEMTESTx86 and found no problems after 10 passes.
I am starting to think it is a disk controller issue or something. Latest minidump is here if you would like to see it...
