I am having issues that I have tried everything to figure out, and the only common thing I find is in the event viewer I keep seeing VSS errors. Some background. I was having some sporadic issues with the computer, and I thought the drive may be going bad. I clone the 500 GB c: drive to a new 1 TB drive. I still continued to have what were sporadic, non consistent issues, any where from The application failed to initialize properly, to Windows - delayed write failed, to the exception unknown software exception. I would restart the computer and usually would run chkdsk and show no problems. I would leave the computer on and come back later that day is see some of these various messages. I went to burn memtest on a disk and saw the icon was not there for the CD. I switched my D: drive and the CD drive sata ports and now the D drive did not show in my computer. So I bought a PCI 2 Sata port card, and now all shows. I have run chkdsk, sfc/scannow, malwarebytes, etc, and all show no problems. The only thing I still keep seeing is the VSS error when I check event viewer, and wonder if this could be the culprit for everything else. I would appreciate any ideas as to where else to look for these sporadic and not consistent errors. And I am typing this now on the computer, so it does work and then throws the errors, not just at bootup. I also ran memtest overnight and it showed no errors.

BSODs, Bios Load Errors, Memory Errors-- RAM or something else?
My computer has been running quite well for the last 2 years. Suddenly this month, random BSODs would start happening. And every day, they got worse. I began researching them-- I had at least 7 different types of BSODs-- from IRQs to Page Faults to Kernal Errors to everything. Eventually I felt...

Installer Errors
I first encountered this error when trying to install Trainz Simulator 2010: Engineer's Edition, and I assumed it was the program itself. However, after trying to install Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Mirror's Edge, I have been getting this same error the instant the installer opens up. I have...
