XP-Pro Crash Since downloding service pack 3, I've been getting cpu crashes while working the internet. First, input to keyboard freezes and a a few seconds later the screen displays ''going to sleep. The fan still runs. Recovery is by switching OFF at the tower back and back ON again. I operate with AOL-9.0, which might be the problem Bill

    Reply to SubliMation: Thanks.

    I mentioned sp-3 only because the cpu crash began after installing sp-3, which was back in Nov. 08. I've had no other problem as you mentioned with sp-3, although I haven't recognized any benefits of sp-3 either. I must have more than a dozen stored "Restores" since then and it would be a guess to select one. (I regularily defrag both the system and the registry and part of each is a back-up.). I have ruled out CPU overheat as the problem because the CPU crash only happens while operating on Internet. Sometimes I can be on Internet for hours without a crash,

I don't know why but some systems which have XP (SP1 or SP2) simply can't take the upgrade to SP3. Your system appears to be one of them. For instance our family's computer had XP SP2 and upon upgrading to SP3 we received a fatal crash while XP was loading into normal operating mode.

I managed to resolve the issue by booting to safe mode and restoring the system to a date before I installed SP3. Sorry that the new SP doesn't work for you.

Eax300se problems with XP


First, open your Task manager and open the "performance tab". There are a lot of built in programs in XP that can peg the CPU to full and this will slow/crash your computer. If any program is eating 100% of your CPU power for a long time, use Google to see how to fix the problem.

Test your RAM: Open the Start Menu and type in mdsched.exe, then press enter. - Then follow the procedure you think is best for your machine.

If your machine is capable via the BIOS, check to see at what temperature the CPU is running. Some processors run hot all the time, but some processors can't take the heat and will crash.

Also, if your computer is not under warranty physically check to see that the CPU fan is moving freely... and the GPU fan as well if your computer has one. Clean any dust and what not off of the blades if it is dirty, or replace if necessary.

If none of that seems to be the issue, remember that XP is considered "End of Life" and a lot of programs will not run on XP any more. Also remember that while some programs might still work, they may still be buggy on XP.

HP Pavilion laptop freezes daily and i force manual shutdown


It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

ATI RADEON x1650 PRO 512 Crash...


Their is a reason that it crashes and it is not because of the game if  it crashes at other times too. Toom much HEAT is usually the problem. Look for slow or stopped fans. Dust on the heatsink.Run the antivirus. After that clean and defrag the hard drive. Let me knw that that did not take care of the problem.

Intel webcam cs430 EXTERNAL VIDEO INPUT SHOWS BLUE SCREEN-NO VID


I had the same problem (blue screen from external cam). I read a few unrelated posts that talked about USB2 vs USB 1 and internal PCI vs external USB hub so thought I'd try a few things. I unplugged my CS430 from an external USB1 (I think - it's a Belkin iPOD synch base with 5 USB ports) hub and plugged it into the front chasis mounted USB 2.0 ports on my Dell Dimension E310 and voila!!! the external cam works and no need to mess around with SP3 etc. Hope this helps.

Fujitsu amilo d1845, Windows xp start up problems


Steven,

it could be a heat realted, can you get to the cpu cooler? most laptops i have worked on this is accessible by lifting the keyboard.

Give it a blow out with a compressed air can and see if that works, if not try lifting the cpu cooler and cleaning off old thermal paste and reapplying new.

Regards

Nick
