  1. My computer has been acting up since December when my hard drive crashed, and since then i've been having loads of problems.

    My video card has been dying for awhile i have noticed, my computer restarts itself with the PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGE AREA. Im wondering is my Video card the problem for this? Hopefully somebody can give me the answer.

    I always thought my computer speakers were dying because of a fuzzy noise i get listening to music, infact its doing it as im writing this. My Sound card is onboard so does that mean my mobo is dying too?

    Can anybody suggest a new Video card and Soundcard?


    Here are the failed test reports.
