Hi guys, Nvidia just released a new driver for my graphic card today 295.87 or something like that, it still crashes after the install, it is not a driver problem. As i said i will get myself a 850W power supply just in case i'm getting any upgrades. If that solves that problem i will submit a new reply.

when i turned on my pc after the last crash. it said there was a Error reading my harddisk. and told me to reset my computer by holding ctrl+alt + delete

Could this be the harddrive?? (just in case)

I can't remember if we tested the HD. If not run maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

In addition run Disk Check

Hello again Greg

I dont think its the harddisk because its a new harddrisk. 2 - 3 weeks old. it crashed with my old harddisk in it too.


I dont understand the part "
In Windows XP - Go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the + sign next to Disk Drives and use Google to search the information listed there) " what infomation?

I also downloaded the first download for seagate. should i download all 3?

You can look on the label of the fan and it will say how many amps it draws.
Watts = Amps x Volts.

The fan symptoms reinforce Dwarf's suggestion that the power supply could be defective. A supply that is not pumping out power on a smooth curve will cause all kinds of odd symptoms.

Can you borrow another power supply from someone to test with?
Been thinking alittle bit about this reply... I was playing battlefield 3 for 2 - 4 hours yesterday, when i left battlefield and opened wow my computer crashed after 30min 1 hour.

Like you said, my PSU is defective. My point is. IT could be that when my PSU is using high watt and then on 5min changes from high Watt use to low watt use, it could be crashing. like unstability ? Could it that happen?

ALOT less errors in my event log now greg, I dont know if you saw the errors last time

got a critical error now. "Event 41, Kernal- Power""Message: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." (got a couple of these. 4 - 6)

Event-6008, EventLog: "The previous system shutdown at 16:58:43 on ‎20-‎02-‎2012 was unexpected."


Thats it, there is 2 - 3 other different errors. 2 drivers needs to be updated i'll do that now. And there is some system one, nothing serious. Looking up google on that one..


Thats my event log, after the clean install. all drivers seems to run as they should :-)

You did install the USB 3.0 driver for me right?
