Main problem began a couple of day’s ago, the computer would freeze and have to be hard - restarted. No messages, no nothing, would come back up normally.
Then began to, before the whole system froze, just explorer freezing and cursor disappearing, Task manager + other programs would still work for a few seconds- exiting explorer would make it disappear but it wouldn’t come back, then whole system would freeze. Hard restart.
Began freezing earlier- on log in screen, on ram check screen- stopped responding to on off button, sometimes won’t actually do anything when - after power turned off then on again, and start button pressed, lights will turn on but it won’t actually be loading the system.
Once I managed to get into Windows, I began a virus scan, then one BSOD - Kernel Stack Inpage Error 0x00000077
Next Time - at logon screen, BSD-A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. 0x000000f4
Now background- I have it plugged into a very good surge protect, plugged into stand alone grounded outlet, but it was left up - by a person other than myself- during a couple of hours when our entire grid went down. It was just a couple a days later that these problems started. The few times I have gotten on since, the hard drive is fine. No new peripherals or programs. I have a constant virus scan running (avast), constantly updated via always active Wireless internet. Also adaware.
But my motherboard, as I have lamented before is a piece of crap. Could it have gotten zapped somehow and now be spiraling away?
Please, I beseech you, my computer is part of my livelihood!
Keep in mind I cannot reliably get it on, so I cannot run any diagnostics!
