Whenever I play a game or anything that makes my computer work hard, my computer restarts...

When I do the error report thing it says that either, it is cause by old BIOS, or most of the times it says because of a device driver...

I have had this problem for AGES, I don't know what driver is causing it!!!!!!!!

Please help me find out!!!!

P4 3.2
1024mb DDR Ram
Radeon X800XL (THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM! I'm sure, it happened with an old graphics card as well)
200GB 7200rpm Harddrive...


Seriously, ANY GAME, it's random as well, might never happen in 1 week, might happen 5 times in a row!


I get a COM+ error in my event viewer, dont know if it might be because of that.

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was C0000005 from line 44 of d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.



Please help me!

welcome to tsf
we will need your full specs including the power supply, motherboard, ram, cpu and cooling fans.
for starters, take off the side and make sure the dust is blown out of everything, and leave it off with a floor fan blowing in and try it again.

I'll seriously give an arm, leg and a head to anyone that can help me!

Motherboard has been recently replaced, and the one I had before had the same problem so it isn't that...


Might it be that COM+ Thing?

Sorry I don't know the motherboard or the PSU, But I know it's not the motherboard!

No conflicts..I hope that is good :sad:

I'm pretty sure it's a driver, I'm suspecting my Avast or Zonealarm...



Or the 3240234 other drivers in my computer :cry: :cry: :cry:

help please... !

I've had this problem for a Y E A R.

Not changed much software since then...

God I wish there was a way to fix this.

But, there isn't I know it.
I have asked about 10 forums, it ended in cluelessness for the admins and mods...

old motherboard toasted? or was it due to an upgrade?
can you give us the power supply specs?
I'm 5000% sure it's not a hardware problem, UNLESS it's the RAM!

I sometimes get a read or write error (bla bla could not be read) JUST before it crashes.
Or it crashes when I close a window.
But.
Memtest shows that my memory is fine.


:dead:


I've had this problem FOR A YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

It isn't anything that has happened recently !

we can help you, but you have to help yourself also by giving us certain infomation.

i asked you to take a side off with a fan to rule out heat
i requested your power supply info [label on back probably] you have a big load there
and i was going to ask you to try 1 ram chip at a time

The sidepanel is always off the case.
Power supply info...Nothing there! I'm being honest, I wouldn't be so stupid to lie now would I?

1 Ram chip...Tried that 1 week ago, nothing, tried both, 1 at a time.
