system crashes and kick-outs

by kenitram / September 4, 2005 5:43 AM PDT

System: winxp pro; (Pentium 4) 3.06 gHz (Hyper Threading); Intel 82845PE MCH chipset; P4PE motherboard; Nvidia Geforce4 Ti 4600 AGP display card; 1.00 Gig of DDR RAM; SoundMax onboard Digital Audio; 160 gig internal IDE hard drive and 80 gig USB external hard drive; USB 2.0 and Firewire BUS systems; DVD and CD-RW drives; ADSL internet service


My computer started acting strangely (crashing; kicking me out of games like Tiger Woods 2004; reporting the incorrect amount of overall space in my drives in Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Disk Management, for example). There was a lot of junk accumulated on my system since I had been using it for quite a while so I decided to do a clean reinstall.
I?ve done this many times before and the only thing I did differently this time was to partition my internal hard drive (I use a 160 gig internal and an 80 gig USB external setup) into three partitions for better management of my data, etc.
Reinstall went well and when it was done I reloaded necessary drivers, upgraded everything Microsoft said I should (incl. svc pack two) and the new, clean system seemed to be working fine - until I tried playing any of my larger games (like Tiger Woods, demo for Brothers in Arms, demo for Heroes of the Pacific). As soon as these games loaded and were switching from load and splash screens to actual game play, I would get kicked out of them, every time. I have not been able to get past this error even one time, so it seems I am unable to play any of these games. The computer doesn?t always crash when this happens; sometimes it just bounces me back to my desktop. But when this happens, I can briefly see the ?blue screen of death? flash momentarily on the screen. When this occurs and I check in Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Event Viewer / Application it seems I am getting one of the following three ?warnings,? every time:

1.) Event Type: Warning

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
