Constant Firefox crashes caused by videocard
on older non-sse2-processor ga-7n400 pro2 constant firefox-crashes were not nice. tried and tested a lot but finally changed videocard which was the reason. FB is still slow anyway. we will see when i have other new parts which i will use in a second same model. could be motherboard since it is halve-dead. see other very long thread of june 2018.
still Firefox crashes but less often
FF is still crashing but less often. could have also to do with:
a) unable to install winfuture final updatepack 368 of mai 2014. btw other packs like win7 can also be used on english systems.
b) scanning now with different programs since switchusb.exe is very suspicious. processor often at 100%.
will get new parts, ram, processor, videocards and will switch MOBO asa ASRock will be reactivated. its related to other very long thread started june 2018.
SOLVED- Dying PSU!
Nomore crashes despite small HDD 200gb.and small winxp-systempartion.
FB sometimes slow but no more Firefox-crashes till now.
some installations cannot be made. cannot install irfanview. only noninstallation is working.
killed also 500 gb-drive. will no be recognized anymore had cold shutdowns. will try to clean contacts(never done on this hdd before)
can i use brennsprit/spiritus/burning sprit to clean contacts?
SOLVED II- Winxp SP3 finally installed! Cant believe but its true
Could finally find out how Service Pack 3 german of winxp can be installed.
1. downloaded not from winfuture but from pctipp(CH).
2. ran perfectdisk. also free space defragged. swapfile at the end one piece.
deactivated genuine protection of microsoft security essentials. yes should replace which was done on other drives
3. left internet-cable
4. run SP3 second attempt was succesful only stopped during moviemaker-installation but succeeded.
SP3-file in directory on desktop. winfuture-version of SP3 on desktop: file destroyed.
Hope i have an option to prove this on a second drive where i will do the same but winfuture-version.
I told them to replace that file which they must do now.
btw: There german updatepacks for win7 win10 can also be used for english versions.
SOLVED-not hardware-related but Firefox-Plugin Shockwave
On my non-SSE2-processor-PC GA-7n400Pro2 i could finally update Firefox to latest 48.02. But constant firefox crashes didnt go away and it was not hardware-related or not only.
Have found a solution which is decativate protected mode of Firefox Plugin Shockwave for Adobe Flash!
If i dont restart my PC from time to time Firefox could crash anyway. maybe pc is still a bit ill. PCI-slots seem not to work, and AGP-videocard has PCI-bus.
Or course i received a non-working Geforce GF 6200... "Yes it was working on my pc...."-Will get another one, which was tested.
got two harddrives, both dead, the first one i used could format(very slowly on usb thats why in interrupted. could connect to pc after restart not recognize anymore. saw burnt chip on backside! if only i had connected the dead maxtor ata-ide first i had checked the WD 500gb then.
only was desperate getting a backup-drive quickly. better getting a new sata 500gb now.
and MOBO and processor will be replaced.
It was the wrong Firefox. Firefox ESR 45.01 is the latest for NonSSE2-processor-PCs like my GA-7N400 Pro2.
Hope i am right. Firefox stays slow and scripts may not work. they had to be turned down.
Surfing better with Maxthon. main color-combination are subtle yellow/black(background) in nightmode. but text here too grey. hard to read if not enlarge enought. Its a pity.
