Okay, I followed the Speccy guide:

(About the optical drive: I disabled/disconnected it due to a faulty wire. I will get on that someday.)

Make sure you have the latest Chipset Driver Installed .. Then check your BIOS to see if you can disable Speedstep .. If not available there try Advanced Power Options .. Under Processor Power Management make sure Max and Min are set to 100% ....

You have a Pentium CPU and running Win 7, it's going to be very slow. I have an old Pentium that I put Windows 7 on. It is so slow, it is hard to use. Even with XP it was slow, but Win 7 is terrible. I have retired the PC. Your best shot at speed is to get a newer PC.

Rubbish.
The chip is a Clarkdale pentium dualcore. I had vista runnig happily (if slowly) in an AMD Sempron x64 with 1Gb RAM.
This machine has 6 Gb and dual processors and Win 7 is faster than Vista ever was

@essenbe OK. I have updated my specs and no, I haven't had any BSODs.

Yes, my PC isn't the best, but surely there's a way to fix this problem? It has only been occurring recently and I have had this PC for about 2 years now.

If you work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to go over your install most thoroughly, one of the steps shows how to resolve repeat errors. For example on that unique processor error you posted I googled the text and found some interesting information here: Windows 7 random restart, event error 35: Some processor - Microsoft Community.

So work through all the fixes in that post and if they don't help, read the other results here: https://www.google.de/search?q=perfo...ICg&gws_rd=ssl

This is how to resolve the repeat errors, which I've never found one that couldn't be. But you may need to perform other steps to get the problem resolved including the RAM test provided and suggested in the first search result. Hopefully you'll find the solution as you work.

OK, I have just finished reading some threads regarding your Error ID 35 - Kernel-Processor-Power item. Here are the top contenders for causes:

  • Incorrect BIOS Settings - Particularly if you are overclocking anything. Test this by going into BIOS/UEFI settings and restore BIOS Defaults. Be sure to record your current BIOS settings so you can set them back as they were - with the exception of and Advanced Tab/overclocking settings, which you should leave at defaults for the period of the test.
  • Corrupted CMOS - Test by performing a ClearCMOS procedure.
      • Note all your current BIOS settings
      • Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
      • Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
      • Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
      • Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
      • Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
      • Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
      • Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time in BIOS.
  • Improperly connected power connections from the power supply to the motherboard. Particularly the CPU connector and 24 pin connector. Remove these (system off and unplugged please) and inspect them carefully. Look for any signs of scorching or burning. If none, then reconnect them being sure they make a good positive contact and snap-in.
  • Poor or failing 3v motherboard battery.
Try those things and lets see if any of them clear up those errors.

Lots of good help already.

The one piece of information that stood out for me was that the issue was not apparent in Safe mode.

Greg pointed you to Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which contains instructions on how to do a clean boot. That is where I would start.

Sometimes, it's only a matter of paging and disk access. The easiest thing to do to check that is to do a thorugh defragmentation. you can use the Windows defrag utility, but it's fairly light weight and you might have to run it a few times to truly optimize the disk. I run it until there are only 4 or 5 passes \.

You might consider Piriform Defraggler as an alternative. Make the following changes to the Settings menu
Select Options...
On the Advanced tab

Tick Computer hangs for a short period and then resumes-tickye_b.png Stop VSS when defragging NTFS volume

Tick Computer hangs for a short period and then resumes-tickye_b.png Use custom fragmentation settings:
then press the Define... button
Tick Computer hangs for a short period and then resumes-tickye_b.png Exclude restore point file
Tick Computer hangs for a short period and then resumes-tickye_b.png Exclude hibernation file

Press OK to save your changes and exit the settings menu.

Either the Windows Defrag or Piriform will improve disk pefomance.

Note: Do not defrag an SSD drive. The utility should be smart enough to ignore an SSD, but just in case.....

Other members have already given you plenty to do. Please comply with the suggestions in the order they were given to avoid confusion.
