COMPUTER CRASHING HELP NEEDED!

#1
Has anyone got any advice for a recurring problem with my pc? It's fine for about 1 hour or so when i turn it on and then,bingo, it crashes without warning . A message appears saying windows has encountered a problem and needs to close down. i've had the memory checked but, apart from that,i'm pissed off with it and don't know what's up with it or is it just fucked? :x

Could be an overheating problem. Are all the fans working, especially the one on the CPU heat sink?

On the same lines, my pc is saying that Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close, then gives me the option of sending the details to Microsoft, or not to send. Never any harm done, but a pain in the arrse if I am doing some work online and then have to re-submit all over again.

Sorry, no answer for original poster but thought I would piggy bag his techno question while it was here.

If that happens you sometimes get a "thermal event" error.

But it's always good to check the heatsink/fans etc

If it gets really hot and whirrs manically it could be a fan problem.

Open task manager, look at the performance graph and watch the CPU activity graph; does it stay permanently high?

Serves you right for using IE. Get firefox; much better 8)

Apparently Mr microsoft has not renewed his licences that is why explorer keeps coming up with this message use FireFox and the problem will go away (or it has for me)

BTW this could be a driver problem, have you installed anything recently?
I do not think it is a CPU overheating problem as you would not get this error, or I have never known it anyway. It could be a memory overheating problem though.....when did this problem start, what did you do before it started or around the time it started?
Is your AV ok and up to date?
Has your firewall asked you for any extra permissions?

I haven't installed anything since i got it and it started doing this about 3 weeks ago. As i'm virtually illiterate with computers do you think it's worth paying someone to sort it out? :?

Before you start throwing money around do some basics and start with a "disk clean" up & "defrag".

Something may come up when you do.
