He asked me to include this link, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/317705/computer-slow-locks-up-alot-unable-to-run-safe-mode/.
Description of my problem: This morning I opened Internet Explorer to read Yahoo news. In the middle of reading an article, the pc powered down and made the same kind of spooling down whirring sound it makes when entering hibernation mode. As this was happening, a blue warning screen flashed up on the monitor, it read as follows:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:
(I did not write down all of the steps, because the screen did not come back after restarting)
At the bottom of the warning screen it read: Technical Information: xxx STOP: 0x000000A (0x9092F6F8, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x80523DBE)
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance
Not sure what this all means or if it is helpful to you at all. I have had no more trouble today other than this. Computer is still slow and still runs fan hard when opening 2 or three programs at a time.
Thanks so much for your help,
