Computer crashing (Even while not gaming now)
Posted 02 August 2009 - 06:21 PM
What does this mean, how can I fix this?
*Edit* Also would like to add that there are tidbits of problems in addition to everything that I do. For example, my ATI Catalyst control center no longer opens up when I want it to. My DVD/CD-R drive no longer reads DVD's but reads CD-R's. My Avast! Anti-Virus On-Access protection center stopped working after a crash and no longer worked even after a reinstall so I then switched to Avira AntiVir. When I tried reinstalling World of Warcraft by means of CD-R's it installed improperly. When I plug in my Mp3 player iTunes gives me an error saying that my iPod could not be synced due to an error reading it, however, this isn't the case on other PC's where it works just fine.
There just seems to be repercussions to everything I do. Do I have to reformat?

I've been surfing alot of threads on this forum on this particular issue alone to hopefully save you guys any further assisting me on the problem, one link in particular http://www.geekstogo...cs-t244098.html
I've tried all 4 steps that Broni mentioned in that thread and neither seems to work. Uninstalled the Actual CD-R/DVD Rom itself and rebooted, the ATA channels, the Windows Fixit, and the Cdgone reg patch. I have a HitachiLG-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4482B ATA Device. I aplogize again for all the help that I've been asking for, thanks. =/

We do not recommend using registry cleaners here at Geeks To Go... They often break more things than they fix.
It sounds like your crashing problems are most likely related to a driver problem, corrupted system files, or something else software-related. In short, your best option at this point would probably be to back up your data files and reinstall Vista.
Make sure you have your computer set in the BIOS to boot from your DVD drive. If it still won't boot from your Vista installation DVD, your DVD drive is probably dying, and you'll need to get a new one.
