Blue screen with errors, restarts then Generic Host failure and unknown error.
Posted on 2006-07-10
I've had my computer for about 3 months now and have had no problems with it. All of a sudden i my computer started to restart with no warning, just out of the blue. So i though it was a virus or spyware, scanned my computer, nothing came up, so as a last resort i wiped my hard drive, reformatted it and re-installed windows.
To no avail as the problem became worse and more frequent. I had problems re-installing windows xp pro. There where a few files which i had to skip, in order to complete the installation, i dont' know what they were but they didn't seem to have ne impact on the operation of windows.
Now, whenever the computer crashes i get a blue screen come up, saying that ne newly installed hardware should be uninstalled and removed. But none of the hardware is really new considering it ran perfectly for 3 months. On the blue screen i will get a message that says something like ?_is_less_or_equal_to error comes up. I can't remember the start, but it changed each time.
It would then load physical memory to hard drive, so saving the memory i assume, then it will restart, report a unknown error to microsoft, which says its a hardware fault, at one staged it said it was the video card, but i've had that tested by the company, and they say its fine. Then every now and then i get the Generic Host service to Win32 error coming up, i'm not sure what this means but i assume it might help with solving the problem.
I assume this error is hardware specified because all the drivers and stuff are upto date. At the moment i can't even get my computer to load windows, its keep asking to go into safe mode, but restarts, i don't know what the problem is, i'm having it tested by a computer technicican soon, but i was hoping somebody here could help me solve the problem.
