First of all I am not sure If I should be posting in this board but I could not find a more sutible one so here goes...

A few weeks ago my computer crashed and every thing on my screen went all fuzy and then I reseted it thinking it would be a one of.

Next time the computer rebuted some of the icons on my destop and infolder view were messed up and I didn't have a clue what that meant :
Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


Me being me I ignored it and got on with life. Now every time I start my computer up when my desktop loads the gfx screws up and the computer crashes and I have to reset it. this will happen about 9 or 10 times before it will mysteriously work.

Also when I get It to work my game (guild wars) will crash when I atempt to play it and will screw up and be really anoying.


Any help at all would be apreciated thanks in advance :tazz:

might be malware, but not sure. never seen that before.



start > run
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Well I just forced the error and got back on. one of them "Windows has just recovered from a serious error..."
Heres the techie part of it (not got a clue if this means anything)
C:\DOCUME~1\Rohan\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERb134.dir00\Mini060705-01.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Rohan\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERb134.dir00\sysdata.xml
And it link me to this:
http://oca.microsoft...88f87eed&SID=10

I got 2 errors :
The EZWINIT service failed to start due to the following error: 
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
and
The EZWRITER service failed to start due to the following error: 
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
these are to do with a program that I know about and don't use so I am about to go uninstall that. (those errors were from the system bit.)
thanks again for the help

The error seems to be caused by a hardware driver. What is the make of the video card you are using? I would suggest installing the most current drivers for it.

Heheh, most of the NVidia GForce cards run off the same drivers. Thats why it referenced the 6800 card.

And dont be jealous..

Just installed the new driver but same thing hapened on start up ;)

There is a driver for something that could be causing the problem (judjing by the errors) Its one of those things which you atach via usb to the computer and xp goes "new blah blah blah has been detected. And you direct xp to the driver to install it. The problem is I don't know were to get rid of this driver I'm sure I have done this before with a phone USB cable thing.
:tazz: ;)
