Hi. Please help me im freaking out! :thumbsup:

Well, I was playing world of warcraft while watching a video and chatting on msn. My character died, and then suddenly BOOM, my computer restarted for no reasons (I ever saw my light turning down in my room)

Now, its all screwed up. It takes AGES just to open winamp, most of my applications just won't open or take too long. Im really freaking out can someone help me?

Thank you very much

Hello SymphonyX and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

If the lights in your room dimmed then you may have been hit by a power surge. Try running chkdsk and the System File Checker (sfc).

To run chkdsk go Start > Run and type chksdk /f. You may be prompted to reboot. On large drives chkdsk can take a LONG time.

ok chkdsk didn't fix it.

I can't try the other solution because I canno't find my windows installation CD.

Could this crash happened because of an application or something?

What can I do now? :thumbsup:

Have a look in the Event Viewer and post back the details for the last 4 errors.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all three categories (Application, Security, and System).

If you find an error right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and include it in your post.

Also, what is the make and model of your computer?

I think that you can click on the top of the column where it says "Date" and that will sort them by date.

OK, I found my windows xp cd. After waiting for ages for sfc to open, it keeps prompting me with a window telling me that I must have my CD inserted because dll files have to be copied from the CD, even tho my CD is already inserted. I keep having to press "try again" for the progress bar to work, im wondering if this is working...

For the event viewer, my computer simply won't open it at the moment i'll keep this updated

As for the model of my computer, it is an Acer, it was built from a store i bought it from its not a company like dell or hp.

Ok, eventviewer just opened.

Sorry, my computer is in french, but i'll translate the errors..


Applications tab: I got over 4 errors and a bunch of informations things.

Errors: Application bloquée isw2.exe, version 0.0.0.0, module bloqué hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, adresse de blocage 0x00000000.

I made researches and isw2.exe is Startup inspector (something i downloaded after the crash to check if i had something wrong in my startup)

Application bloquée firefox.exe, version 1.8.20070.6982, module bloqué hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, adresse de blocage 0x00000000.

Application bloquée firefox.exe, version 1.8.20070.6982, module bloqué hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, adresse de blocage 0x00000000.

Application bloquée firefox.exe, version 1.8.20070.6982, module bloqué hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, adresse de blocage 0x00000000.



As for system now:

"Le service Explorateur d'ordinateur s'est arrêté avec l'erreur :
Cette opération s'est terminée car le délai d'attente a expiré.

"Translation: The computer explorer service has closed with the error:
This operation was terminated because the delay was expired"

Le service Ventrilo s'est terminé de façon inattendue pour la 1ème fois."

This is pretty much it, the same errors are coming especially the explorer service. Im not sure if im translating it correctly though. The eventid is 7023 and the source is Service control manager.

I also have some DCOM errors, but these come from when I booted in safe mode, it says the service could not be started in safe mode.

Are things running better after using SFC?

You could also try reinstalling Firefox as that seems to be having problems.

1) Download a fresh copy of Firefox and save it.
2) Save your bookmarks by exporting them using the Bookmark Manager menu.
3) Uninstall Firefox Using Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
4) Delete the Firefox directory under Mozilla in the Program Files directory.
5) Delete the Firefox directory under the Application Data directory in your user profile.
6) Reinstall Firefox using the download from Step 1.
7) Use the Bookmark Manager menu to import the bookmarks you saved in Step 2.

Hey. Did you read my last post, or did we post at the same time? :thumbsup:

Well, SFC just finished, I had to click over a dozen times on "try again".

Should I reboot before seeing the changes?

I didn't reboot yet, I can see applications loading faster I THINK, maybe its just luck or something. I just tried to open WoW, its still taking ages, and I don't think it will ever open and the system will just finally crash like before.

Should I try rebooting to see if EVERYTHING is still running slow?

Yeah, try rebooting and see how things are running.

What firewall are you using? I have noticed that a lot of eventid 7023 errors concern the Windows Firewall.
