    Hi, Im getting a Microsoft Windows Error at every computer start up or more commonly after a game i was playing crashes and the computer restarts or has to be restarted. The error is: The system has recovered from a serious error. After sending the error report it directed me to the microsoft windows error reporting page with "corrupted error report" and the following " Unfortunately, the error report you submitted is corrupted and cannot be analyzed. Corrupted error reports are rare. They can be caused by hardware or software problems, and they usually indicate a serious problem with your computer."

    So i guess i have serious hardware or software problem, actually i know there is a big problem because my computer is deffinitely not performing. Constant game crashes and computer restarts. Can someone help me figure this one out? Thanks!!

    You need to post more information about the machine. Is it a manufactured machine such as Dell, Gateway, Hp, etc. or a custom machine? If it is a manufactured machine post the EXACT make and model, processor, operating system, EXACT make and model of the PSU, etc.

    If it is a custom machine, post the EXACT make and model of the motherboard, processor, operating system, EXACT make and model of the PSU, memory, etc.

    The 3 most likely suspects hardware wise would be the PSU, hard drive and memory. If you don't have a PSU tester take the tower to a local repairer and have the PSU tested (takes about 10 minutes), go to the hard drive manufacturers website and download and run their diagnostic utility, download Memtest86+ and run Memtest for at least 4 passes on the memory.

    Software wise the most likely candidates are corrupted operating system files, corrupted program files, program conflicts, malware or viruses, corrupted registry.
