Hello, I am using an Alienware M17-R1 computer with Windows 7. Lately I've noticed a lot of (what I believe to be) graphics-related freezes.
When these happen, my only option is to turn the computer off and back on.
The event viewer shows thess errors:
Windows Logs ( System)
-The McAfee Inc. mfeapfk service failed to start due to the following error:
Indicates two revision levels are incompatible.
Windows Logs (Application)
-Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
-The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. The BaseIndex value from the Performance registry is the first DWORD in the Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in the Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in the Data section.
-Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0x00225F3A878C. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.
-Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
- The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.
- Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0
- The previous system shutdown at 10:13:54 AM on 3/12/2014 was unexpected.
- The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
I would GREATLY appreciate any and all help you can give me to keep this from happening again.
Thanks in advance!
