nvstor64 error type 3 is causing my PC to hang repeatedly
Bottom line up front - my PC is having repeated nvstor64 type 3 errors which cause it to hang and the only way to restart it is to hold the power button in until it shuts down. Help!
Full details here:
Early July my PC started acting odd. Freezing, running slowly etc.
- I ran a virus scan from windows - nothing
- I ran another virus scan from a Linux CD which found a couple of things but nothing terrible and, after cleaning, the PC was no better.
Chkdsk revealed some lost clusters. I repaired those and ran sfc /scannow to repair the OS, which it did.
A day or so later, still acting odd, I ran another chkdsk and...more lost clusters. A disk check utility in Ubuntu reported that the drive was failing so I bought a new drive, cloned the old drive onto it (it was still working) and...nothing!
the nvstor64 errors started on July 4th, about a week before I messed with anything. No idea why they would just start appearing like that but I am still getting the nvstor64 errors about every few minutes and I'm about ready to put a sledgehammer through it.
PC is an Acer running Window 7 64 Home Premium, 4gb Ram, Barracuda 1TB drive
