So I keep crashing randomly. Sometimes my computer is fine for 2 days straight, sometimes it crashes every few minutes, it seems rather sporadic and it started happening after some event id's ive been getting. I did try a fresh format of my hard drive and it didn't seem to fix this issue. I just want ot make sure that my suspicious are correct in thinking it is these event logs.


I also wanted to mention that I originally did have windows 8, and from there upgraded to windows 10.

they all seem to be the same event id's coming back.



I do greatly appreciate any assistance regarding this.



noticed the pics arent super clear Event ids are as follows:

Do you have the Windows Management Instrumentation service turned on?

DCOM errors are some of the most common errors I tend to see. Usually they are caused by non-default security permissions on the component service mentioned. The DCOM config tool (dcomcnfg) will actually do some minor scanning and if issues are found will prompt to automatically fix them for you, although most of the time this isn't going to resolve those errors. I have given up on manually setting permissions every time I come across them because they're so common.


If you're getting WMI errors and crashes on a fresh reload, I'd probably want to run a hardware test on the hard drive first to rule out a potential failure. I'd probably run Memtest86+, too, for at least 8 passes, just for good measure.
