    Default Computer Technical Question.

    What would cause programs to crash very very frequently? Firefox/ko/tq/winamp/any program running. Just closes and says it had to close because of an error. Also my computer just randomly restarts frequently... I cleaned it out today, air cleaning... but anyways, i just reformatted a few days ago, i virus scanned, adware scanned.. blah blah.. But my computer is just completely douchey the last few days, cant do anything without it crashing, infact firefox crashed once while writing this so any help would be appreciated.

    I think it may be my HDD failing or over heating.. but im not sure


    btw i was to lazy to find a computer tech forum, most of them are nerdy dicks anyways :P

    Some part of your PC is overheating for sure. My friend had the same problem his power supply fan was too dusty and couldn't cool the system properly. Eventually the fan broke, programs were completely unstable and crashing, and ultimately the PC would start beeping and shut off.

    Once he got a new power supply everything was better than ever. Check to make sure your MB/CPU/powersupply fan is working etc.

    most of the times is because overheat as most of the people say.
    sometimes minimal power supply can also cause that.

    maybe defective RAM modules?
    search for a RAMtesting program and check it out.

    My computer never crashed and it works 24/7 for 3 months now ^_^ (1 restart per day)

    Download motherboard monitor. http://mbm.livewiredev.com/. Make sure you know your board. Install this and start playing games, also download prime 95 to stress test it. Any deviance on power? 6% is enough to cause stability problems.

    Although far less likely to cause problems nowadays, have you got any IRQ conflicts? Open your system properties, and open the device manager, click view and resorces by type. You`ll see IRQs on the list, open that and look for conflicts. Note, intel chipsets share USB and AGP IRQ, and theres nothing you can do except not use those USB ports.

    Its most likely your PSU struggling in the recent heat, you need rock solid stability. Hope this helps
