Didn't see a post format so here is what I have in my computer.
Widows XP Home SP3
Abit NF-M2 nView Motherboard
ATI Radeon HD 2400 videocard
2x 1GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 ram
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5400+ cpu
Western Digital 160 GB hard drive
I have had this computer for a while and problems are recent. It freezes up and it will either restart, blue screen(with a different error all three times), or just freeze with whatever is on the screen. Can't use mouse or keyboard. In the Event Viewer I always get these three errors at the time it freezes.
1. Service Control Manager , Event 7000, The Parallel port driver service failed to start due to the following error: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
2. Service Control Manager, Event 7024, The Forceware Web Interface service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1).
3. Service Control Manager, Event 7026, The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: ntiomin
I don't know what these mean. It usually happens 20 min to 2 hrs after startup. Thanks for any help.
