I've been trying to fix/figure out why my computer has been crashing so much lately...I'd really appreciate some help in diagnosing these problems
Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP3
HP Pavillion Media Center m8100n (4 years old)
upgraded video card - nVidia GeForce 8600
new power supply (not sure make/type)
-frequent BSODs relating to tcpip.sys, Driver IRQL not less or equal, page fault in nonpaged area
-frequent boot errors (computer doesn't boot at all - beeps - short...loooooooonnnng...then repeats
-BIOS error - "system fan has failed, restart to prevent damage to PC"
What I've tried:
-defrag, disk cleanup, downloaded and installed every possible driver update I could find from both windows and nVidia
-download/installed; ad-aware, pc malwarebytes, super-anti spyware, spybot search and destroy...whenever I try to do a full scan with any of these programs, it ALWAYS results in a BSOD before finishing.
-cleaning my computer's innards...fans, compressed air dusting...removed and reseated fans/power supply/graphics card
*attached are all the dump files I
