  1. Last week my computer fire fox kept closing, then i couldnt sign onto my msn. I end up system restroing and fire fox wouldnt open at all so i rebooted my comptuter with a cd i made in PC help &tools. After all that my computer went back to all the stuff it came with( i got in 2003) so i had to do automatic updates. YEsterday it started to turn off and a blue screen came up wtih techical erros. It told me i can do safe mode and all that stuff. I system restore, but it still turns off but no blue screen. I send an error report and got this:

    Try running Memtest86 Instructions are below.
    Instructions For Memtest86
    Download the pre-built version of Memtest86 (Link Below) and burn it onto a CD using ISO Recorder (Link Below) after this boot off the CD (When trying to boot off the CD check in your BIOS that the CD Drive Is the first Bootable Device, to access BIOS is pressing something like F2, F5, F8 or sometimes ESC) and start the test going and let it run for 3-5 hours (Minimum of 7 Passes) or Overnight which is best.

    Also check your temps using the 2 programs below and post these temps.

    Oh also on the error you posted 0xA this error can be caused by a lot of things including Bad Device Drivers, Incompatible Hardware or Software. You could try turning off automatic restarts to see if you get a Blue Screen and a MiniDump.

    How To Turn Off Auto Restarts - "My Computer" > Right Click "Properties" > Advanced Tab > Start-Up and Recovery and Click Settings > Untick Automatically Restart > Ok. And then restart your comp for these settings to take effect.
