    System Crashes

    Reading the thread about Windows 8 last night was interesting. Someone mentioned that their computer had never crashed using Windows 7.

    Immediately after that, I had an automatic update for Windows, and my computer has been crashing ever since.

    I went into Safe Mode, thinking I could just go to an old restore point. Apparently, I don't have any.

    What can I do to get this thing worked out? Am I going to have to go to the nuclear option and restore the whole thing?

    When is it crashing? I had a problem with windows 7 where it would crash trying to install the updates and would never do it. Had to tell it to install them individually instead of the 7 or so in a group. Only problem I have ever had with Win 7

    Re: System Crashes

    Ever few minutes. Seems to be in various programs or actions.

    I see the description:
    KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR.

    This page is interesting:
    KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

    I would prefer not to see the failing RAM option.

    Re: System Crashes

    Sounds like it's a driver problem. Do you happen to have an external drive connected to it?

    There's a file called kernel32.dll in C:\Windows\System32, that could be where the problem is.

    I did just pick one up this week. This sounds like a good lead.

    I just plugged that in and went with it. I'm guessing that I should have actually installed the driver.

    Re: System Crashes

    My father-in-law's Win7 laptop started crashing after a driver update for his SD Card reader.

    Do you remember which update you installed? You should be able to remove that particular update in Add/Remove Programs.

    If you think it might be a RAM issue, most manufacturers have a Diagnostics package you can download from their support sites that will create a bootable CD. Boot to the CD and it'll run through and test your hardware for issues. That should help rule out the RAM if that's the problem.

    Strange as it sounds, it might have been an Adobe update. Something came up about 40 minutes ago for another Adobe update (or maybe the same one). I installed it, and haven't had any trouble so far.
