Okay, so I've been keepin an eye on my event viewer for a week and decided it was finally time for me to post seeking help after being failed by google and bing (well, not entirely failed)... Windows is logging these following errors: WHEA-logger - event Id 20 - component: AMD Northbridge - Error Source: Machine Check Exception - Error type: CRC Error - Processor ID:0 This WHEA-logger error occurs 1 to 3 times a day or more. SideBySide - Event Id 33 - From the details, an 'unknown unknown' happened and it rendered my Sony ACID and Windows Live Movie Maker installs useless - I tried to launch them and got an error that complained about a SideBySide configuration error... Ntfs - event ID 55 - "The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\HarddiskVolume2." - Now, is this refering to the C: drive partition? (the 100 MB system reserved partition would be Volume1 I THINK...?) [Not sure if this is related, but when I try to download .zip archives via Chrome a balloon will just randomly pop up in the notification area that says the file system is corrupt and Windows will schedule a chkdsk - meanwhile Chrome will refuse to download and .zip archives and the balloon will appear each time I try, but other file types download just fine - a reboot solves this] This is a clean and genuine install of 7 that I just did at the beginning of the month, and I also practice safe browsing. EDIT: I just thought I'd point out that I clicked the link to view more details online and all I get is 'No results were found for your query.'
