Preferred Solution: Computer freezing up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

A:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

Hello,

I'm going to post two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.

I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.

I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen and I have no higher computer knowledge.

I'm attaching the zip file required.

Thanks,

A:Random Computer Freezing - Need to hard restart after freezing No BSOD

Wow, this sounds like the same thing that happened to a friend of mine when his hard drive was failing. Replaced the drive and the freezes went away. Even the buzzing noise.

Also you may need to look at what drivers you may have just install/updated.

Hoping you don't have any failing hardware "Motherboard, video card, etc". Those are expensive

A:Computer Freezing; Slowing Down. But mostly freezing. I have my HiJackThis! Log File.

I don't see anything in your log or your description of your problem to come to the conclusion that your problem is malware related. When there is malware present there will always be other internet related symptoms like popups or a browser hijack etc...

I will advise you to uninstall Microsoft Anti-Spyware as the version you have is very old and no longer supported. It in now called Windows Defender.

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Go through this now and see if it helps:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

You will be prompted to ... Read more

Hello, I'm having an issue with my computer.

My computer has started to restart/freeze up on me. The thing is, it has graphical issues once it freezes/tries to reboot. I get all these lines through the screen, graphical glitches when trying to go through the BIOS, etc. The computer isn't too slow, it isn't acting strange, the only thing that is wrong is the obvious freezing/restarting with graphical lines and glitches once it freezes.

My video card has been going out for a long time(I share a computer with a few people and they seem to think the video card is ok, but I have always seen small glitches in graphics here and there), so I am thinking maybe this might be a problem, given the graphical glitches, the horizontal lines going through the screen once it freezes.

When it hits the BIOS, it sometimes shows these same lines with the screen going mostly black.

System specs are:

CPU - Core 2 Duo, speed I don't remember.

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

I got this computer a few years back and I am not one to keep updated with specs or talk about them often, so I have forgotten the speed of the CPU and I do not know if I am missing information for you guys.

Solutions I have tried:

Overheating - I used air to filter out all dust/dirt that might be there to harm the computer, I have plenty of fans in there, etc.

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

If you're getting graphical 'glitches' while in bios, that's usually a good sign that your graphics card is having issues - however, I have seen this happen with faulty ram. I'd recommend reseating the cards (ensure your computer is off and unplugged whilst doing so) and see if that helps

I ran memtest and it seemed to freeze up during memtest. the little blinking icon was normal, but the test wasnt running and the commands didnt work.

does this mean that my memory sticks are bad?

I don't know what else to say other than my computer has been freezing and firefox has been freezing lately. I called the manufacturer and he said to restore windows to factory settings, so I did that. Things were great for a week or so, but recently my computer has begun freezing again. It happens pretty frequently. Firefox will also freeze when trying to get it to do very little work, like loading two tabs simultaneously, e.g. My AVS found a suspicious file recently and quarantined it, but still, the freezing has continued. Please advise.

And I do not think that I have a Boot CD

Had the day from hell with my computer, antivirus stopped working and my computer got infected. On safe mode with networking, I ran malwarebyte a couple times, cleaned most all of it out. When rebooting to windows, computer became super slow, like 5 minutes to open a window, etc. I had to force reboot a few times. But then I started getting a screen that demanded a reboot disk. Only one I have is. a windows vista disc. I had windows 7. It won't let me even get that blue startup screen where I can push f keys.
Can anyone give me some advice, or do I need to just get a new hard drive.

I have a HP Pavillion dv9417ca Notebook PC with AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile Technology Tl-56, 2.0G Ram, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2.

The computer when running slowly makes a ton of noise starting up and running and tends to use more processing. The computer sometimes makes weird noises that aren't normal windows sounds and come from error's. Like intense beeping noises ocassionally. Firefox especially is insanely slow and the longer I run it the more processing power it uses up along with the plugins.exe. Sometimes it will uses so much that it completely freezes my computer. Lately I've also been having trouble starting the computer where it won't even load windows.

I've ran Ccleaner daily and Malwarebytes weekly and find nothing and the problem has been getting progressively worse. I have Avast which updates daily.

Now, its slower then my older computer, which I thought was impossible. I mean...This is pathetic. I unistalled AVG cause there was a process running that is supposed to be a Trojan, and a program said AVG was running it. So, I deleted it, was prompted to restart, so I did. It took literally 10 minutes to shut down and restart. At worst, my old computer took 5 minutes. (P4 2.8, 1.5 gigs ram, ATI Radeon 9800). So, how do I fix this? I have a theory its Microsoft forcing people to upgrade by putting out crappy updates. I mean, for my card, the newest driver is dated the beginning of last year...They come out with a new one but its Vista only. Woo...idiots. So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times. I reinstalled. Same thing. Oblivion goes for about 30 minutes then crashes to the desktop. I then hit the window to maximize again, and it freezes. This has happened everytime as well.

A:I Need Help...slow Computer, Freezing Games, On A Fast Computer...(possible Trojan)

The first thing which strikes me is that you have 2 anti-virus applications on your computer ( Zone Alarm security suite and AVG Free) Having two anti virus applications running on your PC can give conflicts so I suggest you uninstall one.For the antispyware applications do you have all real time protection enabled?..I first would try Microsoft online test and see what comes up. The freezing can also indicate faulty memory, there for run a Memtest to rule that out.

2nd Problem, occasionally when i turn on the computer it wont boot up. The screen will turn on and stop with a dash blinking in the top left corner, not proceeding to any boot up of any kind, and just recently while i shut it down from this sort of freezing up, little pictures of pixel hearts and dots started appearing until i shut it off.

Recently(about 2 weeks ago), my computer started freezing. It happened 5 times already(one of them occurred as I was typing this post). I wasn't doing anything in particular, just using Firefox to browser the web.

3 of the freezings occurred while I was just browsing, 2 occurred while my computer was starting up. No sites in general either, out of the 3 times I froze, I was on different sites each time(all of them are "known safe ones" too like ign.com, wikipedia, etc).

After the latest freeze(during browsing), I restarted my computer only for my computer to freeze again after 3 seconds(screen stayed the same, it happened right after it showed me my memory test). Then I restarted my computer again and it froze before anything showed up(monitor did not detect anything so the monitor did not show anything).
Here's what I have done so far:

1. I used memtest86 and done 3 full tests, no errors on any tests.

2. Did anti-virus and anti-spyware scan on my computer(I used: Avast, Spybot, Adaware).

3. Checked Windows Event Viewer(unfortunately it didn't log anything).

Here's the last things I did to my computer before I noticed the freezings:
1. I downloaded and installed Secunia PSI.

2. I downloaded and installed the latest version of WinRAR and Quicktime player(recommendations from Secunia).

3. I also installed various security patches from microsoft update.

Besides that, nothing in particular.

Ok most of my games are freezing up during gameplay such as Everquest freezes up for no reason or same for Guild Wars. I think its something wrong with my computer (but no sure the problem) or it might be something wrong with the graphic card. I can telll the difference between lag of a game and the game just freezing up for no apparent reason.

If you need me to say what kind of computer i have or what graphic card i currently have, please say so.

If there is a program that i need to download to help fix this problem, i trust you guys seeing as you know more than i do.

Hello everyone - I am a new member of the forum and hope that someone reading this might be able to help me with a problem I have with my computer.

In recent weeks the computer screen keeps freezing with the cursor being replaced by the hour glass symbol. This usually happens after several hours' computer usage - but sometimes it occurs soon after the computer is turned on.

When this happens, I am unable to log off; the computer on/off button does not work when the screen freezes and I have to turn the computer off at the mains.

In order to be able to log back into my broadband internet connection I have to turn the computer and and off twice and then on again .

Sometimes when the computer screen image freezes a message box appears always saying "End programme" (i.e. "End programme - CiceroUIWndFrame" or "End programme - mixer").

My computer runs on the Windows XP operating system.

I changed from Internet Explorer browser 6 to 7 yesterday but the problem of the computer screen freezing persists.

Any helpful advice on this would be much appreciated.

How old is your computer? Have you ever reinstalled your OS?

What I usually recommend is if your computer is at least a couple of years old and have yet to do a clean install of your Operating System now is the time, especially when it starts acting up =)

Hi, my computer i built myself is freezing all the time.

The idle temps right now in the summer are:
Motherboard: 74 C
CPU: 70C
Aux: 40C
GPU: 43C
Hard drive: 40 C

Are these too high?

I have a Coolermaster 690 case with 1 120 mm fan on the bottom, one 120 mm fan on the back and 2 fans on top.
 

A:Freezing computer, too hot?

70C is your CPU idle temp?That's very high for idle. What's your load temps like?

Which CPU and which cooler?

Hi all,

My computer started freezing a couple of weeks ago while playing Need For Speed Most Wanted, naturally I assumed since it only did it then it was a possible graphics card overheating problem since it has done it occassionally during UT2004 as well.

So what I did was went out and got myself a Vantec PCI slot fan which I was told would help a lot.

I got that this weekend. Now all of a sudden the game still freezes (thankfully it doesn't decide to reboot the computer anymore like it used to) but also I noticed that 3 times yesterday I had left my computer alone not doing anything and when I got back it had frozen. It even froze overnight while I wasn't even doing anything on it.

Do u think it's still the graphics card overheating or do you think that maybe it's my CPU as well? Or do you think my computer just needs a good dusting? Cos I noticed there is dust inside.

Sorry if you think I am being a bit dumb here though. I just thought I should get some opinions before trying to mod stuff or buy some more fans when all it might be is dust.

Thanks guys
 

A:Computer Freezing

Please tell me what kind of video card you have.

It is very common for older cards to freeze up on games with heavy graphics acceleration (a problem I'm having now with BF2 . )

You may need a new videocard,
also, to see if anything else is overheating, download speedfan (Google "speedfan")

and tell me the temperatures.

I've done some troubleshooting, and determined that I should update my ATK0110 file, as I'm using the one from 1995 that is known to cause BSOD issues. Although I'm not getting a BSOD, since I'm using this file, I think I should update it. I'm hoping it fixes my issue.

I've downloaded the zip file with the updated ATK0110 file, but I'm stuck on how to update it. Do I just cut/paste it into my system32\drivers folder, and replace the existing file with the new one? Or is there something else I should do to update this file?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:Computer Freezing

What is the exact make and model of your system (or motherboard)?
FYI - the BSOD issue applies to using the 2005 version of the file with Windows7.
If you're using a 1995 version you've got more serious problems than just that file.

My computer is about 6 months old. Here Are my specs

AMD Sempron 2600+
ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 pro 128MB
768MB RAM

Right then, my problem. Most of the games I run will play for a few minutes, then freeze. The computer makes some clicking noises, then I get a blank blue screen. I did have a WD 80GB HD that I thought was the problem. That got replaced by the Hitachi. I have also tried reinstalling windows, updating the bios, using Microsoft ATI drivers, using current and older ATI drivers, using current and older Omega ATI drivers(i figured cause it was games that it might have something to do with the graphics card), I've even tried different IDE cables and a new power supply . Please, anyone with any idea of what this could be let me know.

Cheers!!
 

A:Computer Freezing

it is probably a memory problem.

to start off with, you have 2 (or possibly 3) unmatched RAM sticks, which is probably where your problem lies. Remove all but 1 RAM stick and see if it still crashes.

give us your RAM configuration (i.e. 1x512MB + 1x256MB -or- 3x256MB, etc.) and your exact RAM specs (brand name, model #, speed, CAS/timing of each RAM stick)

Hello,1st time poster. I have my friends PC here and I am looking for problems on it. He claims that it is freezing up at any given time. I already asked him what programs are running when it happens. He said it can be any programs that are open when it freezes up. I ran ad aware in safe mode and found a few tracking cookies. The ad aware was also updated. I checked his task manager to see his running processes and CPU usage. There is alot in there, but i manually checked each listing to ensure it is not obvious spyware, malware, etc. He said it happens when he is online, but admitted that the only time his PC is on is when he is online. I decided to turn to HJT and try posting to see if anyone else could please check to see if there is anything that i am missing.

Hello. My computer has, since i've gotten it half a year ago, kept freezing up every day or two. It occures randomly and i have tried my best to troubleshoot the issue. I'm no computer wiz but i have been using computers for 10 years now and usually i can figure out what the problem is, but this time i'm stumped. Let me describe what happens; my computer will 'freeze' up at any time, be it at user login, idle, when whatching a movie/stream or playing a game. I varies a bit but typically i can't switch program, mouse pointer will work sometimes for a minute or so, sometimes sound goes all crazy and 'repeatative' (i have switched soundcard so that should not be the issue). I've had 1 bluescreen but that is all, the rest of the crashes are all freezing, only thing to do is hit the reset button and i'm good to go again for some time. This happens on avarage once every 2 days of use, but sometimes it can happend 3 times in one day. Where do i go from here? What should i look into? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Hi Noto

Welcome to Seven Forums

Stick to basics:
Have you tried updating your video-card drivers?
Have you updated your motherboard drivers? Latest direct X from Microsoft?
Some of the experts on this site will request that you upload a minidump of your BSOD (freeze) - check this link on how to do that.

Question - do you remember any recent changes (hardware and/or software) that you did prior to these issues occurring?
I am guessing it could be power-related or a hardware failure.

Hi, Everyone. I have just built a new computer and having a bad problem. Randomly, while in game or in desktop, my display will go black, All sound will Freeze and internet connection drops but pc stays on with hardrive activity. The only way to fix this is to turn off pc and reboot. I have had this problem for quite some time even with my older pc build. The only hardware that transfered from old to new is the power supply, operating system, hardrives and video card. However, i have tested another power supply and a new gpu and still the problem persists.I have all the latest drivers and the newest updates. The only thing left is the harddrives but in my experience it wouldnt cause this because this problem has occured even in bios. All temps are fine as well. When i made the transfer i whiped the drives and installed a fresh copy of vista. My friend purchased all of the old hardware besides the hardrive and psu. He is also using the old gtx 280 and has no problems. I just cant figure it out. Thanks for any help someone can give me.

Hello all, first time user. I keep having a problem with my system freezing. at first i had windows me installed. i updated to windows xp which did stop most of the freezing. but not all so i updated the ram from originally 128 mb to 512 mb.. which made some difference but still didnt help my full problem.. so i tried running a disc check and my computer just freezing and screen turns blue.. i tried this four time before i realized it just wont work.. also my computer wont fully de-frag.. so i completely zero out my hard drive and re-loaded everything.. that didnt work.. if i could get some type of suggestion it would be great because i ran out of ideas.. thank you

A:My computer keeps freezing...

Well to me it sounds like either bad ram, or your CPU is overheating. You wiped your HD clean and installed XP, and you still get problems. Also check the Device Drivers to see if any of them need updating.

Was your system stable right after you installed XP? No software installed? Also depending on how old your system is your Hard Drive could be calling it quits...Bad Sectors etc or just plain worn out.

Sometime over the past few months, when using IE [now 11] my computer started randomly and suddenly freezing for about a minute - nothing will free it up - and then just as suddenly it will continue with no error or other indication. Nothing is written to an event log. I've disabled every add-on and it has made no difference.

Chrome doesn't do it. FireFox doesn't do it. Safari doesn't do it. In fact, except for when you are in IE it never ever happens.

As I said, I've disabled all of the add-ons. I've also run every single FixIt solution that seemed even vaguely related to no effect. I updated my nVidia display driver. I removed that graphics card and driver and installed a different one. Nothing changes the symptom of the PC randomly locking up when running IE. I didn't really expect it to since it never occurs when running any other browser or program.

Does this issue ring a bell with anyone? Better yet, does anyone know how I can fix it - other than just never using IE?

Thanks in advance...

RELEVANCY SCORE 34

My lap top keeps freezing up no matter what I try. When I try to do a Virus Scan it freezes in the middle of the scan. When I try Spyware scans or scans with Windows Defender it also freezes.
I have reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows xp and it even got stuck during the reinstallation.

If anyone has any ideas it would be appreciated.
