I'm using a Toshiba M40 laptop which has recently (within the last week) had a clean install of windows XP home. Everything was running smoothly, but all at once I've been having all kinds of crashes and errors popping up in a variety of different programs. This makes me think that it's some kind of hardware issue, but I really don't know how to pinpoint the problem. Here are a few of the errors I've gotten so far:
firefox - random crashing when trying to open; crashing while it's running citing "js3250.dll" as the offender; crashing citing a "C++ runtime error: R6025 -pure virtual function call".
windows media player - randomly crashing while viewing a video resulting in the blue screen of death (which asked me to "check disk space" and "check for bios updates")
games - several fairly graphic intense video games randomly crashing, all of which ran fine during the last week.
nvidia graphic driver update - this is one that really stumps me...I thought I would try to reinstall graphics drivers but when I try to run the .exe off toshiba's website I get a "file damaged...possible transfer error" when I am positive the file is not damaged in any way
I haven't mucked with the hardware or installed anything new since everything was running fine... does anyone know how I should start trying to fix this? Another clean install? It's still under warrently so i'd like to take it in if it's hardware related...
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read. Any help would be much appreciated!
