Hardware Problem Developing In An Old Computer

Recommended Posts

I tried standby mode near the beginning of my XP usage, but stopped using it when it would cause issues. I only log off, but I don't keep my computer running all day or night when I'm not using it.

 

login123 you weren't the only one trying to track down gremlins. I found mine, and it was SUPERAntiSpyware which after one of its program updates last year would randomly cause a BSOD, and other very weird abnormalities. Whatever went wrong with it I think it was perhaps related to a driver for it always running in the background even though I had disabled the SASCORE service for it. Maybe something to look into if you also have it installed because some security software may state "XP compatible" but I sometimes wonder.

Just for info.

 

On my old XP machine I run daily for 14 hours per day, I have never left it on at night in all those years. It gets turned off completely.

 

Same with my other OS's, even my Win 10 has fast startup turned off (so it's a real shutdown then when I select shutdown.)

I also do a real shutdown of my PlayStation 4 when not in use instead of putting it into rest mode since it can alleviate some random crashing in some games, and especially Sony's crash happy PS4 Media Player app.
