  • computer crash (*arg!*)

    my computer would sometimes crash and restart...i just hate that cuz it's simply annoying and you often fear that your work/game would be lost...


    anybody know the solution to that problem other than bashing my computer to its death and getting a new one?

    PS: i'm not kidding, i'm really having this problem myself.

    we need more info.... i know that you have been using steam and know that this is an issue with my roomates pc... you might want to check the forums at www.steampowered.com
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

          Details....

          What OS? Have you been doing the OS updates? Whats the CPU? What kind of motherboard, RAM & Video? If you don't know, what company is the system and what model number?

          Are you over clocking or have you ever overclocked this system? Have you added any new hardware latly? Was there anything new done just before this started happening?

          You say it crashes at idle... does it crash when playing games or when the system is taxed? How good is the cooling in the case?

            it's like "new"

            anyways, not even idle, i was surfing through TG forums and then the next second..........crash!

            if my computer crashes if i play games, imma bash it myself with a hammer and cast it into the fires of Mt. Doom!

            stay tuned for more info....thanks.

                  i dont think he knows... which is part of the problem! :(

                  to me, it sounds like fast writes is enabled, on a motherboard/gfx card that doesnt realy support it.....

                              here is my thoughts on the crash and restart... (with little to no info on the situation)... your computer is actually giving you the equivelant of a BSOD (blue screen of death). this means that 1) you have installed a driver or program that has made the computer unstable.... try a system restore to when it was working correctly. 2) some hardware is failing or overheating. take the cover off the computer and see if this helps.
