My Dell XPS 420 has a problem now and again whereby everything stops working, but I can still move the mouse. If I try to click somewhere it'll say not responding. It locked up again just now, and if you look at the log, the time where the PC locked up was around the time of the error 21/4/12 12:54:32PM.
I have no idea what is causing the issue as I'm not high level enough to interpret event logs. All I will say is that I have running on my PC: avast, adaware, malware antibytes and advanced system care pro for maintenance so I keep my PC in good health (or not it seems!)
All of the above have reported no issues, no viruses etc etc and I have run full scans testing all hard drives.
I have run the trial version of active smart (hard drive utility) and no errors are being reported for any of my drives. Check disk etc reports no issues.
In the past my Crucial Ballistix memory has failed a couple of times, but those were BSOD errors that I identified and fixed by replacing the memory.
Does anyone have any clue that could point me in the right direction? I have recently given the PC a good dust out using compressed air and it worked fine straight after so I'm sure its not that and the PC hasn't reacted to me giving it a clean before in any case.
I'm running Win 7 Ultimate x64 with 8 gig of ram.
Cheers guys, any more info you need just holla!
Is it worrying that the log reports 16000 errors since July of last year lol?!
