For ages my computer has been crashing\freezing at random points.
I have Windows XP
1.25 ghz Athlon processor
40gb disk space
Radeon 9600 graphics card
After much investigation I think it may have something to do with the internet connection, but maybe not. When I am home from University and not connected to the internet I have no problems. However at Uni, on a network in my house I do have problems. I have recently installed my ethernet USB adapter because when I used this a few years ago it worked fine. It does seem to have improved the situation as well.
Recently though, for the first time, when the systme froze it showed a blue 'Stop Error' screen which said...
-to check for adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message disbale it or check for updates.
-Try changing video adapters
-Check for BIOS updates
-Disable BIOS memory options, such as caching and shadowing.
The technical info was:
***STOP: 0X0000008E / 0XC0000005, 0XF78C8151, 0XAA611768, 0X00000000
***COUSBTS5.sys - Address F78c8151 base at F78c7000 Datestamp 3b7bab08
I have also tried running the computer on safe mode with networking, and it crashed here aswell, but not on normal safe mode. Surely this means something to do with the internet??
