I will be the first to admit that I am not great at computers, but I know enough to know that something isn't right with
mine. 3 days ago, I began to use my new Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop, which I recieved over the holidays. I haven't downloaded
anything that I can think of, except Avast (virus scanner someone suggested me to download) and Windows Live Messenger, which
I haven't heard of causing any other problems when it's been downloaded ( I have it on my Xp computer upstairs, and I didn't
have any issues.).
First, I got the BSOD, they came up randomly, once when playing spider solitaire, then when
going on the internet randomly, once when Adobe tried to open something, and so on and so forth, my point is that I couldn't
find any connection between it all.
Then, the Dell website asked me to do a System File Checker, which came up
with the following results: Verification is 99% complete. Windows Ressource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to
fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windirCBSCBS.log. I havent got a clue what that all means, but I
don't think it should be happening to a new computer.
Next, I am asked to go through Reliability and Performance
Monitor. When doing so, I noticed that a)some of the BSOD weren't logged (???) and b) that when I clicked Software
(un)installs(and went under activity status), for the past three days, most have them have been failing, which I never knew
about, and for no reason apparent to me.
I've ran multiple virus scans, with nothing to show, they all come up
completely clean, not even a cookie. It might be helpful, this is my stop error number:
OS Stopped Working Version 6.0.600 0x000000c5(0xacbaa8d8,0x00000002,0x00000001,0x81ce7868)
(Another one, later on the same day) OS Stopped Working 0x000000c5(0xcca448d8,0x00000002,0x00000001,0x81ce88d9)
Here are the specs on my laptop:
Processor: Intel(R) Penitum(R) Dual cpu T2310 @ 1.46GHz
System Type: 32-Bit Operating System
I have made many trips through other forum sites, and been through the Dell
troubleshooting page, with no answers, just a lot of questions. Hopefully thats where this search stops! Any help at all
greatly appreciated! Sorry for the long message, just want to be sure I include everything to make it easier! Thankks!
