Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My computer has been shutting down for a couple of weeks now. At first, I thought the memory was defective since it usually only crashes when it is doing a lot of tasks at once or one really memory intensive task. namely, when I'm installing a program or playing a video game. Lately, it's gotten worse. I went to the event viewer, and here's what I've found: General: Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected. Details: - - 10 0 2 0 0 0x80000000000000 1185 Application Cody-PC - //./root/CIMV2 SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99 0x80041003 Theres about twenty of these. Each one is logged at the time the computer crashes. How can I fix this? How can I avoid such problems in the future?

    I would seriosly consider whether the processor is failing under load at this point. Its difficult to tell from the info provided but that is my best impression. Would it be possible for you to check the temperature of your computer?

Well, the inside is perfectly clean. I blow it out every other week. I tried using Spyware Doctor and Spyboy but the computer crashes before Windows can even launch. I'm using my laptop now.
So far, I've replaced the ram and the power supply. Neither was of any use. I looked at the processor, too. The thermal compound was baked on. The computer said the CPU was at a constant 17C because the sensor wasn't attached. It's running at 25C now. I don't think that's hot enough to make it crash, but the thermal compound still needs to be replaced. Hope this works.

Here is what I do whenever I come across one that crashes. shuts down, freezes and what not. I clean out a lot of junk files, run scans, and clean the inside of the PC itself. all the unnecessary, temp internet files, and cookies (use disk cleanup, or if you have any other computer maintenance programs with one.) Check for viruses, spyware, malware, adware, and bots. They can run in the background and multiply their processing tasks, therefore hogging all your CPU and RAM and causing these issues. I suggest Spyware Doctor and/or Spyboy S&D, Kaspersky and/or Norton. You can get Spyware doctor for free by downloading it in the google pack (go to google and search google pack), and Spybot S&D is free. Another thing that can be done also is to clean the inside of your PC. You wouldn't believe how bad loads of dust and whatnot can affect a PC. I have taken computers that have had similar problems and opened them up and there was dust CAKED on the Motherboard, RAM, in the plugs, fans, and Hard Drives. I clean all of it out and it work 100% better. Dust can carry static charges and cause shorts in your hard ware, so it is important for best performance to keep your PC clean on the inside and in its files.

The computer keep shutting down.... i had taken down and he feel the mother board or something had been shorten circut.. i had it for 3 years... other than that seem that everything is fine but shut down...


If there was a short circuit it wouldn't power on period. If it shuts down completely and not rebooting your most likely teleconferencing one of the following
  • Power supply is crapping out (less likely)
  • Your computer is overheating (Most likely)
If it is rebooting then your most likely experiencing a software crash perhaps due to a failing hardrive or just general operating system corruption.
If your computer stays up for more than a few minutes try downloading speedfan (click the words "Speedfan 4.4" not the giant button (thats an ad) http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php Run it and it will display your core and CPU temps anything over 60-65 is pretty **** high, shutdowns will usually occur higher than 75 C though. If you know how to enter BIOS (usually F10) while the system is first booting up, some BIOS will allow you to set a shutoff threshold.
After thought... failing CPU fans can also cause a computer to shutdown.
Comment back with your finding or if you need further help.

Computer turns off on its own not all the time but once or twice a week. I turn computer off when Iam not using it


It could be "bad" RAM (Windows crashes, and shuts itself down, to prevent corrupting the files on the disk-drive).

It could be "overheating" (hardware shuts down to prevent combustion).

I have a T3042 e-machine, my computer will suddenly crash and go blank and make this alarm noise that sounds like an english patty-wagon and shutting it off doesn't stop it, I have to unplug it and wait...


It could be a couple of issues, more than likely heat related.

Open the case and see if all of the fans inside the computer are spinning, especially the CPU Fan. If this has a seperate video card, you need to ensure that is spinning also,

Laptop turns on for a couple seconds but then shuts down, screen doesnt show anything during that ttime


Remove the battery and plug the laptop. If there is no activity when you push on the power button (not even for a second) your motherboard is defective: it could be only the power jack, but it could be a bigger problem also.
There is a very small chance to be a memory problem; check the memory as it follows;
- if you have 2 memory modules use only one at a time, the other one could be defective or
- check your memory with another laptop or
- use some known good memory etc.

If there is no activity or no video signal with good memory that means the motherboard is defective. Could be expensive to be repaired or replaced. Verify if the laptop is in warranty and have it checked by a professional.

COMPUTER KEEPS ON REBOOTING ITSELF.


It could be driver problem. But if even almost all mode of boot doesn't help. Your options are repair, restore to factory settings or reinstalls depends on the features your system has for recovery. In old ways we just reformat it and reinstall all, backup cd always on standby.

If harddrive has a fault like many bad sector. We replace the drive.

As for your other system I will say that sometimes updates are not helpful enough. In old days of xp we are not updating, commonly we just update antivirus definitions. We experienced slow down and system crashes. We just install some enhancement software in exchange for some features of xp.

If I miss something just post a comment.

Did my motherboard fail?


1. When you switch on the supply, and press the power button on, do you see any LED activity - thus indicating power may be running to the board? If not, it could point to a possible supply failure, and so you should check the internal fuse at the rear of the supply.

2. Do you have more than one memory module? If so, try running the computer with only one memory module at a time, thus eliminating the possibility of a single RAM module failing the entire system.

3. Is the CPU seated correctly, could it have become dislodged from its mountings? Heatsink fans (HSF's) are quite heavy, and when they force a cpu to become disconnected, you would not be able to boot in that case too.

Be sure to consider ESD protection when inside your computer, and at the very least, ground your body by touching with both hands a gas pipe, etc, that is connected to ground, before handling any memory / cpu parts.

Good luck,

Erik.

Computer crash/need upgrade


I need more information to properly assess this problem.

What sort of P.C. is this? How old is it? How much R.A.M. (Random Access Memory) do you have? What O.S. (Operating System) are you currently using?

My first "guess" is that this is a lack of R.A.M. Games usually use an awful lot of memory for their graphics functions in their programs.

Today's standard for most computer operations are about 1 G.B. (Gigabyte) of D.D.R. (Double Data Rate) R.A.M. (Random Access Memory)
