WINDOWS 7 Crashing frequently
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have installed two factory configured Dell Optiplex 980’s which keep crashing..
Both have Avira Antivirus, Office 2007 Skype etc. (Disabled Defender as compatibility issues with Avira)
I decided after the users reported so many crashes and nothing found in the system logs to completely wipe and re-install with 7 Ultimate.
The crashing is still occurring....
Again I have checked through the event log with the following Errors –
I. Controller error on Device harddisk5
II. NVIDIA Graphics Card – Display Driver service has reported an invalid current state
III. Application Hang on Microsoft Access
Both machines are on a domain
They both use a Access Database through a front end GUI which the used on their XP platform so I tried running in compatibility mode to XP Pro SP2 but still crashing.
The database is shared on the server – could this be a read/write issue or possibly a timing issue with both clients accessing the data at the same time?
Or the access database having leaky code that eats away at the RAM until crash....?
Any help is much appreciated
