Hi, since about a month ago my computer keeps crashing. It started after I took a hard drive from an infected computer(thinking I could format the infection out of the drive) and put it in this one, and even after I noticed the crashes and removed the drive, it keeps crashing. I'm running Vista SP2 if that's of any consolation. Also it crashes when I try to open pictures,listen to music, and refresh my windows experience index( it says "new hardware detected" and "your windows experience index needs to be refreshed"). Can somebody please help me? :censored:

It sounds to me like you need to go ahead and re-seat everything you might have knocked something loose without even realizing what you have done even if you have already checked that check again anything and everything that can be unplugged inside the machine un-plug it and plug it back in firmly.

I reseated everything and the crashing problems disappeared, but now I have another problem. Programs take an average of 10-20s just to open, It can be anything from notepad, to Mozilla Firefox. Also, when I try to open 2 programs at once, they both freeze, and when I go to close a frozen program, Windows Explorer will stop, then restart after a few seconds.

Does this happen in Safe Mode?

If it is faster in Safe Mode try Safe Mode with Internet, if this works please use the following link to provide us with information about your computer so that we can assist you.
