Points to your network. Possible corrupted antivirus software, corrupted network adapter drivers, corrupted audio drivers, or corrupted Windows installation.

Uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials, get a fresh download for its installer from Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows, and install it again.


Also, go to your vendor support site (for HP, Dell, etc.) or your motherboard support site (for ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.) and download any updated network adapter drivers for your system that are for Windows 7 64bit. Install those drivers.

If you need help, please fill in your system specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread: System Info - See Your System Specs

I downloaded my MSE from this same website the last time. So i think it should be alright.

As for all the required network adapter drivers, i am not too sure what i need and where is the correct place to download them. Can you help me with htis please?

Someone told me it could be Bios problem. Is that possible?

*system info updated*

Thanks.

eMachines Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / EL Series / EL1850 and install the Audio and LAN drivers.


Not likely a BIOS issue.

I still recommend re-installing MSE. Even if that is how you obtained it before, while it was installed, it may have been damaged due to hard disk data corruption (it happens on all systems whether the hard disk is working as it should or not). It is a good idea to uninstall it, download a fresh copy (so you know the installer is not corrupted), and install with the fresh copy.

Drivers can become corrupted due to usual Windows activity if there is corruption of the hard disk file system. Corruption of the file system happens over time. It usually occurs over the course of weeks or months, and is primarily due to not shutting down the system properly, i.e. the system freezes or takes longer than usual to shut down so the user holds the power button down for 5-10 seconds to do a hard shut down. Corruption can also be due to just regular usage of the system, i.e. Windows fails to write something properly to a sector on the drive due to high drive activity and it becomes corrupted.

That is why most performance and maintenance specialists will tell you to run hard disk checks once a month: Disk Check


Corruption of drivers can indicate more serious issues like bad RAM or a failing hard drive, but it does not usually mean these things. When it is due to failing hardware, there are typically other symptoms to indicate it.


As for re-installing the drivers... To fully re-install a driver, use the following steps.
  1. First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  6. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  7. Right click the device
  8. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  9. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  10. Restart your computer only if Windows asks you to.
  11. Install the latest driver for the device.

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user.
  2. First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
  3. Click Start Menu
  4. Click Control Panel
  5. Click Hardware and Sound
  6. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  7. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  8. Right click the device
  9. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  10. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  11. Restart your computer only if Windows asks you to.
  12. Install the latest driver for the device.

I performed a disk check and everything was ok just now. Does that mean my harddisk is alright? The blue screens that appeared before were not due to harddisk failure but something else?

The blue screens were due to something network related. That is the most I can narrow it down at present. That could still mean a network driver or audio driver is corrupted. Have you re-installed those?

Any crashes since re-installing the drivers?



Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log (you may need to search for wininit instead of chkdsk).
