Angry Problems


Im having problems.

Applications and games keep crashing then i get the message that an error has occired and needs to close

Its done this to me playing Warrock,Flatout 2 and does it on most applications.

Whats causing this?
If i click to see the error report the system will just crash

My system temps are probably dont need to know that anyway but just incase you do.

Also i had this problem last week so i thought i would format & re-instal windows fresh and that would sort out the problem but Noooooo.
Still doing it after 3 days of me re-instaling windows...Also to not my system seems slower than usual.

Currently using Ubuntu live disk as windows is messed up

good response Warez, I turned mine off immediately after install.

could be a memory issue though...
if you can get into windows, check the running apps to see if there's a memory hog. (some viruses cause these symptoms) take unnecessary items out of the startup too (using msconfig)
check the pagefile settings as well, and change to windows managed size(recommended)

please report back...
