Posted on 07/23/2012 1:03:43 PM PDT by pabianice
My PC is crashing about once a day and when rebooted gives this message.
Can someone help me with this? Thanks.
Not clicking any links... tyvm
Same here. Pls copy and paste txt. Won’t click a link.
Waiting a minute to reply on here is getting tedious.
Won’t click a link either.
You need to do disk cleanup and disk defrag as often as possible. Good anti-virus and anti-malware software installed that you run as often as possible also.
If you do all this, your pc should run like new. On my older laptops I run this stuff almost daily. Newer pc, more like weekly.
The poster has been a Freeper for 12 years. There’s some trust for ya!
Its a JPG of a screen shot.

Use MS fix tool online. I’m on my cell so I can’t point you to the guys correct link. but someone will be along and get you there.
There are other tools but if you are posting that here I’m assuming you’re not technical .
Also perform all necessary updates.
I clicked on your link and now someone is pounding on my front door. I’m scared.
Know them well... many exchanges...
But this isn't about "the poster"...
It's about asking for help with known error codes tucked into a link with an unclear destination...
You go right ahead.... [CLICK!]
When is the last time you took your computer apart and cleaned out the ‘dust bunnies’?
Check the vents on the powersupply, processor exhaust fan and on the front of the computer for dust plugging up the works.
It doesn’t matter if you are in an air conditioned environment. Dust will cause your CPU to overheat.
Also pull the heat sink off the CPU and clean the dust out of there too.
Most of the ‘error’ codes you get are too cryptic to be able to pin point a program or process that may be causing it. They are generally caused by a ‘memory’ error because of heat build up. (some times it’s bad memory too, but not likely)
Also try re-seating your memory and any expansion cards you have plugged in.
“It’s about asking for help with known error codes tucked into a link with an unclear destination...”
If you ‘mouse over’ the link, without clicking, you can read the ‘destination’ at the bottom of your browser and then you will have a ‘clear’ destination to know whether to click on it..
The link goes to:
It’s a screen capture of the error.. Just like he said.
I can’t help you because instead of following the sage advice of the first 3 posters I DID click on the link and a disaster happened. Now, I have change my Depends!
google the specific error string. You might get a URL similar to this
By the way, while we’re on the subject, I use Chrome and Avast free anti-virus, and have NEVER caught a virus clicking on anything, and I do click and click. Enough Internet superstition, please!
BC stands for “Bug Check”
go here for the codes & meanings
P.S. Clicking on e-mail attachments is dangerous, as much software such as Word or Excel stupidly allows to include executable programs within documents (corporate geeks demanded such features.) However, with proper precautions clicking on Internet links should be safe.
Good advice from Bigh4u2 in that hardware is the most likely culprit, and memory the most likely source of hardware problems other than oddball USB devices.
Overheating - I don’t think so. Modern CPUs/mainboards have overheating protection and will slow down and/or start beeping when they get too hot.
It’s probably just a corruption in RAM or what is referred to as RAM leakage. Do a cold boot. Shut down computer, unplug for a few seconds then plug it back in and boot it up again. In all likelihood the problem will go away.
