My old desktop computer are driving me nuts. Most frequent problem is it freezes completely (mostly when I'm watching a movie in windows media player or playing a simple flash game). Sometimes it shuts down and give me the blue screen error message after reboot. Browsing Ryan air's fantastic homepage in IE explorer always make the browser crash. Don't know if all these problems are related. But the most problematic issue is the freeze and this is what I wish I could get some help to solve. As I'm senile I can't really say exactly when this all started but it feels like it has got worse during the last month. I haven't installed any new hardware lately.

I'm running an AMD sempron 2800+ (32 bit version) with 1024MB RAM, Asrock K7S41GX motherboard, Windows XP service pack 3. I've scanned my computer with Kaspersky (found and removed 2 trojans) and superantispyware. Checked the CPU temperature (50 degrees celcius).

I downloaded WhoCrashed and checked the crash dumps (but I assume these dumps are only displaying my blue screen crashes and not the freezes) See copy below.

Any kind person who can guide me in what to do???

These are your errors:
Bug Check 0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
Bug Check 0xBE: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY
Bug Check 0x50: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

All of them point to RAM problem.

But...

Checked the CPU temperature (50 degrees celcius).

While computer idle? If so, pretty warm.
Your processor max temps are listed at 69° C - 70° C (depending on model)

Thanks for answering Broni.

The RAM's were preinstalled i nmy computer when I bought it and I've had no problems with any conflicts during the years I've had the computer. Is it likely they can start failing now?
Regarding temperature, I thought the max temp was 90 for my processor so if max is just under 70 then it's actually quite warm then. The fan is also somewhat noisy so maybe I should try to replace it to see if it solves anything until I have money to buy a new computer.

Yeah, max temps for desktop processors are around 60-70C range. Laptops processors max temps can range at 90-100C.
Bad RAM (if) is not dangerous to your computer. Eventually, it has to be fixed, but at this moment, the heat is the most important issue.
Noisy fan not necessarily indicates bad fan. It may simply be overworking in attempt to cool off the CPU.
Start with opening the case, and cleaning inside with compressed air. Turn it on, and see, if all fans are running.
Reapply thermal paste.

it could be a problem in computer hardware
in addition follow these steps:
  • try to get into safe mode
  • reboot the computer and keep hitting the F8 key
  • it will boot you to a dos screen,
  • use the arrow to scroll to the safe mode and then click enter.
  • this will boot you into safe mode and the screen will look unusually large icons.
  • go to start then control panel,
  • add and remove hardware, uninstall UTorrent, then reboot your computer
  • if it boots normal then install UTorrent again.
  • if it does not then it seem to be a hardware problem, possibly RAM.

[font="Comic Sans MS"]Now I've had this problem quite a few times too, well I've experienced the 'Blue screen' anyway. It sounds like you need to perform the 'Repair Wizard', or if that doesn't work then you need to install Windows again, and that should sort the problem out. If you experience anything like that then installing Windows XP again is always a good option, may I ask - do you shutdown your desktop or laptop correctly~~?

Ahhh right, if your downloading files onto UTorrent then you've probably got a virus! You may have got rid of the viruses on the computer but the internal viruses will still be in the computer, format the hard drive and then install a fresh copy of windows and that should do the trick.
