This all started when a when there was a semi black out. Everything got alot least power then it should of, including my computer. I hit the back switch and waiting till they fixed it. A few weeks after they fix the problem my computer started to reset by itself. I remember back then i had this same problem and it was something loose. I believe it was the video card that time. I kept trying to take it out and putting it back in several times, and my computer still kept resetting by itself. When I sent the error to windows, one of them said its ether a hardware or a software or something with a driver. The other they had no clue what it was. I didn't chance anything in my computer. I cleaned out most of the dust inside the computer, including that PSU (the thing where you put the plug in). Today I got a crash when i was playing a game, but this one was strange. I crash and didn't reset. The screen said it couldn't display video. Whats wrong?

Computer status: AMD Athlon™ XP 1800+, 1.54 GHz, 512 Ram, NVIDIA G-Force MX 440 with AGP8X, 2 drives (one is 55 GB the other is 57 GB)

Your video drive is broken. I prefer buying a new one.

Yes it seems that during the power outage your video card or on board chipset (if not using a card) was damaged. Best thing to do is if you have a spare test it with or a spare or possibly if you can borrow a freinds or somthing to test making sure that it is not the motherboard.

The video card still allows me to play games though. If it's damage shouldn't it reset/crash after a while? I even tried play games that require higher graphics and for some reason its not crashing again. Is it possible its a virus or some kinda file damage? If so how can I check?

I found that I tend to lag when I'm online as well. When I play and go to a site, it lags sometimes/takes long to load web sites. It wasn't like that before ether. I'm not sure if its the web site or my computer.

Well, no crash, no blue screen, no nothing.

So what could cause it to crash? If something is loose can it do that?

By performing the hard shut down you may have damaged some files, try running a chkdsk.

Go to Start and click on My Computer.

Right click on the drive in which you want chkdsk to run. The C: drive is usually contains your operating system.

Click on Properties and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.

Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed.

To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors, and then click Start.

This will take a while, do this when you have the time to let it run the whole way through.

If the problem still persists afterwards look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the time that this is happening. Each error will have its own date and time shown.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow trinangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I'm pretty sure this is nothing, just a software error.

Merged the above topic to the original post to keep the information all in one thread. So as not to have multiple threads about one issue.

I see one error message about your video drivers...and another about your dial-up modem drivers.

My guess would be that they (and maybe other drivers) are corrupt, http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/datacorruption.html

If it were me, I would just uninstall the current main drivers and then reinstall them or update them to newer versions. Generally, I don't update drivers any more than I would update my BIOS (if it ain't broke, don't break it).
