  • PC Probs: Event Viewer Details - XP Geniuses Help!

    I have no idea what any of this means.

    But, the PC seems to be randomly restarting quite often. When it does, I check the Event Viewer and its usually the W32Time, even id #21, #4 back to back.

    I am cutting and pasting the important "critical" things from the log. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    You might have to re-install the OS

    That's what I do whenever software starts acting up and coughing up messages like...

    Catastrophic Error

    I re-install the application, the browser, the entire OS...whatever
    Go Cards ...12 in 13.

          The W32Time error (NTP or Network Time Protocol) appears all the time in Event Viewer, and can be ignored.

          The Source Disk Event ID: 7 is a little worrisome, but not uncommon.

          The ATI -I assume your primary video card - error seems to be your problem and is fscking your system.

          I would get the latest drivers for your card, check their website support and google:

          ati2mtag Windows Event ID: 52234

                Sun knows better.

                Also, if a software solution for your card doesn't work, then it might be a hardware issue with your ATI card - or how it is interacting with your motherboard.

                Then you would want to take out the ATI card and switch to the motherboard video (through BIOS) or swap in another card.

                All should not be lost, and reinstalling the OS could just mean reinstalling the video card error.

                  Well, the guy came and looked at it today.

                  First he replaced the hard drive. Same probs.

                  Then he replaced the memory. Same probs.

                  Then he replaced the motherboard. So far, no problems. How could the motherboard alone be causing those probs?

                  He seems to think its the processor and that the new mobo won't help. But, he didn't have one, and if it continues, I have to call back and they'll replace that.

                  What could I be missing?
