Motherboard Check?

I've been trouble-shooting system crashes for a while.

I am getting a lot of Microsoft Explorer crashes.

And now and then other programs crash.

I replaced the C drive less then a month ago with a clean install of the system.

I just did a memory check with Memtest86+ and received no errors... The last piece of hardware I know to check is the motherboard.

Is there something like Memtest86+ that can test the motherboard?

Sincerely,
Greg

Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
Type in: sfc /scannow
Click OK (Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Flyupload, and post download link.


If you don't have Windows CD....
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start and then Run
type in regedit and click OK


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


Thanks to Broni for the instructions



Revised and Simplified:


Do you have a valid XP CD?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below:
  • Click on Start and select Run... type sfc /scannow (note the space) (Let this run undisturbed until the window with the blue progress bar goes away)

SFC
- Which stands for System File Checker,
retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.
If you want to see what was replaced, right-click My Computer and click on Manage. In the new window that appears, expand the Event Viewer (by clicking on the + symbol next to it) and then click on System.

The file is 34.5 MB; too large to attach... I can use YouSendIt.com to send it to you if you give me an email address to send to.

I am interested if you find something referring to my back-up program: Rebit.

System crashes, freezes, and sudden reboots can be caused by all sorts of things, which makes them that much more difficult to troubleshoot.

Why did you replace the hard drive? Did the problem start before or after replacing the drive?

What are your temperatures? Is the interior clean of heat trapping dust?

Did you let MemTest86+ run for several passes?

Have you scanned for malware?

I would swap in a known good power supply before I started buying any more new hardware.

problems happened before new C drive

installed new C drive because a disc check would stall on 75% when run

Also, was recommended to install new C drive by Rebit tech who was looking at log files

Did 21 passes on the MemTest

Don't know interior temp - i've been keeping interior fairly clean

Also; currently using Microsoft Security Essentials - up to date and scanned recently - nothing found

You should be able to open the log and get a screenshot of it. Then attach screenshot.
If to many entries then we can assume it fixt them correctly.
You might try rerunning sfc to make sure it got everything but I don't think it will find anything else.
Try these steps:


Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Posted Image












Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to [b]Winlogon]/b] and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

Okay - the speedfan reading is happening now. I won't be able to reboot my system until this evening (PST) for the other reading.

Let me know if the speedfan info is showing anything.

More to come,
Greg
