Windows 7: Constant Crashes...processor core? PLEASE HELP!

Couldn't run the seatools DOS as the CD drive isn't working...not showing up in device manager, also the coprocessor has no drivers installed?

The CD drive isn't identified by the system at all ?

It won't let me run windos update either Code 80072EFE? This stupid thing is about to irritate me

UPDATE: it suddenly decided to let me do the updates? I guess that trouble code relates to a connectivity issue? Whatever, this stupid machine is still irritating me though...

I've gone through the 124 stuff and don't find any major issues other than the CD drive and the coprocessor drivers?

If your having connectivity issue try getting the latest drivers for your network stuff.
I'm not sure about the coprocessor. Can you explain in details? Sounds like your CD Drive is spoiled?

Well, lots of cussing some persistance and a TON of anger...I was able to run a few of the windows updates...which made the CD drive work? Who'da thunk it.

I've been blaming an OS/registry/whatever software issue for a while. Did finally get the Seagate DOS to run and that came back fine. Been running Memtest 86 for about 4 hours now and it is cycling the error count at about 1000 errors per second in test #9...right now it is up to 11369000 and counting FAST...

Okay, looks bad.
How many sticks of RAM do you have? are you taking this test with all sticks inserted or just one?

Hmm.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
