My PC was just fine, and few days ago, it started.

I used to play games normally, but now, almost every game I try to play, crashes.
These games are not demanding, and my PC can handle them, because I played them for years with no problems. (like 10 games I tried, get errors after some time of playing)
My browser also crashes sometimes.
Blue screen of death appears very often, too.

I scanned for any viruses/trojans/spywares,... and found nothing.
I fixed registry problems, etc ...

My graphic drivers are updated.

Maybe my PC is heating up too much? I do not know, because I am not really an expert, thats why I need your help.

Hello ArchX.... Welcome to

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
  • Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time.
  • Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been
    more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly
    then.

    don't understand my instructions please ask and I will try to explain them
    clearer for you.
  • Do not attempt any steps unless instructed or ask before to
    make sure they will not cause any further issues.




I fixed registry problems, etc ...

If you are saying a registry cleaner then you may have caused more issues then fixt.
Lets see what is going on now

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.









Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

Both log and report look good. Lets move on to the next step.



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.

Still not fixed ...

I disabled auto reset, so now I got a chance to read my blue screen of death.
The problem is

MEMORY MANAGEMENT

STOP 0x0000001A (then lots of numbers in here)


The lags in multiplayer games were fixed, had to reset my internet connection.

So if I fix that BSoD problem, the only problem left are those game crashes to desktop, with an error message ... I doubt that 4 different games, that all worked before, suddenly crash everytime I try to play them...

Below I am including the stop error explanations for the two you have provided.

0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
This memory management error is usually hardware related. See the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist above. If this occurs while installing Windows, also check the Windows system requirements including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. If none of the above resolves the problem, see the MSDN article linked above for further steps.



0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).



OK is this a factory installed XP or a custom built installation?
Do you have a XP installation disk or is it a recovery disk?
Is it a Genuine Microsoft Installation disk or is a burned cd or downloaded iso version?
Have you updated any drivers just prior to the issue starting or replaced or added any new hardware to the system just prior to the issue starting?

One guy I know had 2 of them, gave 1 to me ...

1 problem i forgot to tell you about is when I click the button to turn on my PC, and then I go afk for 10 mins, and when I come back, it is frozen ... and I must restart ... But that is nothing important... Just need to fix the games problem ...

Do I maybe have to change some settings ? Memory dump, etc ? Or should I reinstall my windows (and delete everything I got on my PC) and install everything again? I did it few times already, when my PC was totally broken, but I want to fix it without doing all that ...

Then I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
