So.. My computer has been running slow, or getting to the point of running slow. I at first thought it was a nearly full hard drive, so I deleted some files, and games off of my machine. Then it started to speed up a bit. Until recently, I moved into the basement of my Dad's house due to being a poor college student, and my step-mom getting those dreaded cats that make me cough and sneeze.

I've gone through numerous assumptions. I've updated my video card and other drivers. I've reseated everything, reapplied some of that silver CPU stuff onto my CPU and heat sync. I thoroughly cleaned the interal bits of my case to get arid of dust. So I'm at a bit of a roadblock. I am getting Bad_Pool_Header errors, random errors that are in hex, and a rare flrmgr.sys crash.

I've also experienced heavy screen tearing to the point where my screen looks like a delicious ice cream cookie sandwich, and it freezes.

So in my dilema I finally decide to turn to you, since I think some of the people here have assisted me before. So I'm running my own custom built computer, no fancy alienware or gateway brand on it.

I'm scanning with the BSOD viewer at the moment so I'll have that up and attached shortly, or posted directly into this thread.

Check all the components in your computer to make sure that they are securely fastened.

One of them references your ATI Driver.

I updated the ATI driver last night about 20mins before the ntoskrnl.exe BSOD.

I feel like I'm taking tihs no where, honestly.

Your video card may have come loose in the slot, so I would look at that. It would also explain your display issues.

Could you explain how it could've come loose in the slot? I push down on it and it doesn't feel like it is loose. It's in a PCI slot, so there is no fancy click tab like on the memory slot. Just a small little tab.

Well you did say that you moved into the basement, and that does involve moving the computer correct? If so moving a computer can cause cards and stuff to become loose. THose loose cards can cause issues like the one you care currently experiencing.

So...

I fixed it.

There was a screw rolling around my motherboard, luckily nothing was fried. And my computer being slow was caused by a partially broken registry string that was left by a nasty trojan I had a few months ago. Though it seems the minor virus that I had last week might've had something to do with it.

I would call this fixed.
