In the last 24 hours, I have had multiple crashes involving 8E, FC, and 7F errors.

Have run many scans, memory tests, SFC, and checked through all the drivers in Device Manager.

I intend to adjust some partitions and do a reinstall, but would appreciate any comments.

WinPatrol, GoogleTalk, Skype and Windows Explorer keep crashing.

I suggest, you start new topic at "Am I Infected?" forum.
It looks to me like some infection.

Well, there are no Windows 7 drivers for your model available from HP. You have an NVIDIA graphics card, right? You can get updated drivers here.

I'd say it's a little early to say malware at this point, Broni. It's certainly a possibility, though...

Hmm...the more I think about it, the more I think it isn't driver related. Faulty drivers shouldn't crash programs like Skype and such. Also, they would show up in the BSOD dumps, if that were the case...but there are none (only the HAL and win32k.sys).

I'm not sure where to go from here... :huh:

A reinstall would almost certainly fix it. If you're already planning on doing one, there isn't any point in trying to diagnose the crashes.

Going from bad to worse, LOL

Shrank the Win 32 partition to 60GB and fomatted the new 240GB partition. Started the new installation and all was going well when it crashed with an 0x50 error. Checking out MS, it seemed to point to cache or Video memory so I changed back to an 8600GT card and tried again. Started successfully and said it would move existing files to Windows Old Folder, but then crashed with a 0xF4 error.

Tried to boot into XP a couple of times but that stops when I get to the explorer screen.

Tried to do the install to the new partition again but the destination partition doesn't show as an option. Tried to boot into XP so I could reformat the new partition but crashed again with the 0x50 error.

I am running out of ideas, but I think we can rule out malware, Broni.

I intend to put the drive with the new partition into a spare USB case and reformat it there on one of the other computers. If I get no joy, will look at a new MB.

Very frustrating all round. May try putting the 8800GTS back in and see if I can get into XP again. Getting sick of the look of BSOD, LOL.

Thanks for the ideas.

Cheers

PS. All my drives are SATA. XP and the Recovery Partition are on a 320GB; Win7 plus the new partition are also on a 320GB - these are internal. I have a 640GB and a 200GB in external USB cases.

You might try reseating your RAM.

MBR image is now corrupt, so basically I have a nice anchor, LOL.

Stuck MEMTEST in b4 I went to bed last night and it has now been running for about 12 hours with no bad results. Will leave it running untill I can be bothered with it again.

As an oldtimer with only a few years experience of PCs, I regard them as just a box of bits and it ain't gonna beat me, LOL.

Just found my spare USB case so am ready to attack the 2 drives when I rake up the enthusiasm. Now the sun is shining on a lovely Sunday afternoon so am going out for some fresh air.

Thanks all.

Update.

After numerous attempts to get things running again, I finally gave up the fight and bought a new motherboard (a cheap MSi G41TM-P33), put it in on Friday afternoon and a reinstall of Win 7 with all my old hardware went without a hitch so am guessing there was some scungy 5c capacitor giving up the ghost.

I must admit that it's nice to have a desktop up and running again - not much of a fan of laptops but they have kept me going for the last few weeks. Sold the Compaq to the guy next door last Wednesday and a lady from Vanuatu wants the Acer in October so down to a couple of spares at the moment, LOL.

Cheers.

Thanks LB

This rig cost me $NZ3500 about 4 years ago, so wasn't going to give up without a fight, LOL.
