    Temps look cool - so given the errors it might be related to the network.
    W32time is a routine written for W2000 to synchonise time with an authoritative time server. Go to services and disable it to see if this helps.

    Which windows are you running? Just to be sure.

    If it is XP, go to control panel > admin tools > services and scroll down to the end of the listl. Select Windows time and double click; set startup as disabled and reboot. If it is not the problem, you should restore it the same way.
    As a matter of interest, does your system clock keep good time?

    Post some minidump files, look in c:\windows\minidump. You can attach 5 at a time in dmp file format.

    All the crashes are caused by Sacm2A.sys, which is a USB modem driver. See if there's an update available. You need Windows Debugging Tools to open them.

    Probably caused by : Sacm2A.sys ( Sacm2A+cd8 )

    Yeah, it's the same. What's the make and model of the modem. I'll see if I can find an update.

    Hi did u install any new hardware like NIC card etc.... - may be you installed driver is not ok and in your system failure option command is to restart the pc - remove the hardware and reinstall the driver - or if it working perfect go right click on my computer icon select properties and go to advance tab you can see system failure restart is checked - unchecked it

    W32time error is usually a problem with either the port is not opening on the firewall, the time source not being available (unlikely), network congestion, or an improperly configured NTP source. So can you tell me this pc is a part of any LAN network or modem connectivity

    Hey :p thanks again for helping me on this :p

    its a Scientific Atlanta a cisco company 2100. it MAY be my virgin media drivers for the modem. i got them on a disk that came with it. If it comes to it ill have to find somewhere that sells a 1m ethernet cable then i wont have that problem right? id just uninstall the USB driver for the modem and run it with the ethernet cable?



    Its not part of any LAN network. its modemed up tho:p

    ive unchecked it:p cheers for that.


    Thanks for helping me u 2. :p its a pain when things dont work the way they are ment to.

    From what I can find out you have the latest driver. The Ethernet option is the best bet. It won't cost you much either.
