Computer crashing

  1. Hi, my computer crashes without any warning mostly during gameplay or sometimes just looking at sites. I've had this problem for months and really need help to solve this. I had enough of this crashing, my computer is nearly completely useless because of this crashing and its only 1yr. old.
    My PC: Windows XP
    NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440
    Version 2002, Service Pack 1
    Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz
    512 MB of RAM
    I got this blue screen once with Technical information:
    *** STOP: 0x0000007F (0x0000000D, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    It sorta helps.... it still gives me a few info on different problems and I'm not sure what is my exact problem and how to really solve it.

    Also, a few times of gotten this error when it crashes. When it starts to load back in the screen telling all of your computer stats it says "Hardware Monitor found an error. Please go to Power Setup menu." or something like that.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your problem may well be related to faulty RAM. Download Memtest86+ and let it run for at least seven passes.

    There`s a floppy version as well as an ISO version if you don`t have a floppy drive.

    www.memtest.org
