COMPUTER FREEZING

Q: COMPUTER FREEZING

My laptop started freezing 7 days ago. I found my security protection was turned off though was unaware thinking it was on. My computer worked fine until 7 days ago. I have tried to uninstall my old security, install new security, tried freeing up space on laptop, tried everything the last 7 days but have only a minute before computer freezes again not allowing enough time to complete anything I attempt to fix the problem. I am completely exhausted from the stress and not sleeping well because of it. I have very important files of my work on my laptop, saved unfinished projects that have been working on for over a year. And I am now seeking someone's help on how to fix the problem. I was going to bring my computer to someone but am on a fixed budget.

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.)

It would be of great assistance if you told us the make and full model of the laptop and the OS
When you say you have tried everything - what please to save me suggesting something you have already tried

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Okay this is long and drawn out.

First of all I run AMD Athlon 1700+ 1.48ghz, 512MB of RAM 60g and 120g hard drive. I have a RADEON 9550 graphics card - new addition to the computer.

OKay so now my computer is sporadically freezing. I'm not talking anything you can Ctrl alt delete. I mean I have to restart it every time! I am pretty computer savvy, I've gone through drivers, etc. It's not overheating. Checked everything. This computer is a clean slate basically.

So everytime I visit a page with streaming audio/video. It locks up. Or just whenever it feels like. But Definitely with streaming anything.

Im so frustrated I've put about 12 hours into this. Help.

I use a Dell Vostro 1520 (Laptop)
RAM is 3GB
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T6570 @2.10 GHZ
Video Card: GeForce 9300M GS
OS: Windows Vista Service Pack 2

To give a full story, around 2 months ago I would experience random fps lag spikes while playing games on my computer. I assumed it was my video card's driver. I updated it and it didn't solve the problem, so I just dealt with it. At some point it got really annoying and I checked my physical memory and it was at 60% after closing multiple programs. I had also noticed it took significantly longer to open any video or music files and my computer would occasionally freeze for quite a while. I then assumed it was malware, so I uninstalled any programs I no longer used and used Malwarebytes to scan my computer. It came up with some results, but nothing really appeared threatening. I still deleted all of them. No result was shown, so I used Avast anti-virus full scan and windows live essentials and deleted any threat that would appear. Still no progress was made and as of recently my computer will freeze in a few seconds after logging in. I read some forum posts with a similar problem and the solutions were usually to do with RAM or the video card driver, so I booted in safe mode (no problems) and disabled my video card. I then rebooted normally and that didn't solve the problem. I am assuming there the programs on my computer and no matter how many I uninstalled or closed in processes on task manager, I still end u... Read more

For the last 3 days or so, my computer keeps freezing intermittantly. I've tried to do a system restore, but it freezes when I bring up the "control panel". I did manage to get a virus scan in, but it didn't seem to find anything. I thought I'd try the scan again today and tried to "update" McAfee before I started the scan, and it froze. Now I can't get into McAfee at all. Not sure what to do. I'm using XP OS.

OK, let's see if fixing these two will reveal other entries or maybe even fix the freezing problem.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Okay, so my computer has been sort of freezing every time I try and start it up normally. Everything will load, but right once I try to open a program or click on the start menu, that thing will freeze. I'm still able to move around my mouse, but everything else is just frozen where it is. It works fine in safemode, and I've checked for spyware and viruses, and it's neither of the cases.

I recently installed Office 2007, and I think that may be the case, but, alas, it won't let me uninstall it in safemode.

I have this problem where my computer randomly freezes. It freezes completely randomly, normally once a day and its getting to the stage now where it is really pissing me off quite frankly. I'll tell exactly how it crashes with an example. I'm looking around playing a well known game called counter-strike when everything stops. The first times it did this i went for Ctrl+Alt+Del, or Alt+tab. Of course the computer did not respond.

I've tried re-installing windows, vacuum cleaning the insides of the computer, cleaning up the registry uninstalling all unnecessary programs. Anything else you guys can suggest?

Hello, I have built my own PC and i'm pretty good with computers myself. However lately i've been experiencing a problem and its been running great until a few weeks ago. I have made no hardware changes since then except adding 4GB RAM. My computer has frozen 5 or 6 times since then. I'm not sure if its heat, or what really, but heat is my best guess since i noticed some of my tempatures are unusally higher than what they were.

I have an Intel i7 930 2.8GHz not OC! With Elitegroup X58B-A2 motherboard under the hood and an 850 Watt Power supply with Nvidia Geforce 295 GTX MFG by Gigabyte. Currently have 8GB PNY DDR3 1333 RAM (4x2GB) equipped with a case fan extra only. The case fan runs at a lil less than 1,000 RPMs which i'd like to jack up. CPUID Hardware Monitor is what i use to check my tempatures. my CPU cores run between 55-70 degrees Celsuis idle now, why i'm not sure? My GPU core will run from 60 to 70 celsuis, i've never seen it over 70, as by the time it's 70 i experience a freeze. Possibly a GPU temp high? However i have read up that 70 is fine for this card to handle.

My best estimation is my Memory overheating, however i have ran multiple memory tests and they experience no errors. and I have done some CPU benchmarking/stress testing and i've seen my CPU reach 88 degrees and still run fine. Why? I dunno because 88 is very high so my CPU is high yes, but not enough to cause a freeze. Now i've played music while fr... Read more

The current error at the time of freezing as according to event viewer seems to be this one

A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the WerSvc service.

Sometimes when i start it, it asks me if i want to Launch Startup Repair. I clicked it and it said it was loading files then the computer just restarts. Sometimes while the windows logo is coming up it freezes and have to press the power button. Then while it is logging me in to my computer it may also freeze. If it doesn't i start the internet and start playing Combat Arms. Then it usually freezes during the loading menu. Sometimes the screen just stays the same and i cant control it with the keyboard or the mouse. All I can do is turn it off and hope it doesn't happen again. Now more frequently it happens. I thought it was the game so I deleted it and stopped playing it. But the freezings of my computer have not gone down. I have searched for viruses and it says it has not found any. I really want to start playing Combat Arms again, so if anyone gots any advice please don't hesitate to tell me. And my computer, before it had the upgrade, had 6 RAM sticks and they took out 3 RAM sticks. Now someone please help me.

You say you had 6 sticks of Ram before the upgrade what happened to other three. It sound like the guy who did your upgrade took the other 3 sticks may that is why I think your computer crashes.

Whenever we try to logon to the computer it freezes. We have to hit control alt delete and then start all over a few times. Also the computer freezes when we are on for a little while. What can we do to correct this problem?

A:Computer Freezing

There could be several things wrong but start with the simple things, pull the side cover off, if there is a buildup of dust use a can of compressed air to clean out the heatsink that sits on top of the cpu.

be carefull, don't turn the can of air on its side as this can cause liquid to come out, also do not use a vacum, this can cause static that is harmful to computer parts.

report back if its any better

I'm working on this PC that keeps freezing.

I opened the case and blew out massive amount of dust! Also, after I fired it back up, I noticed that none of the PSU fans were runnning. At this point, windows will barely boot, and will freeze on the black screen. Can the PSU overheat this quickly and be my problem? What tells the PSU to turn on it's fans?

TIA,

Matt
 

A:Computer freezing

The PSU's fans should spin up immediately when the computer is turned on, if not, then either:

- the fans all died (would be a huge coincidence)
- your PSU is using some kind of wierd fan-speed management that apparently goes all the way down to 0 (highly unlikely)
- PSU died (replace it with another and see if it works)

So not only does my computer freeze after idling for a few hours (it didn't do this before). Windows also starts up really slowly. Everything shows up, but I am not able to click on anything for about 10 mins. If I do, Windows Explorer doesn't respond. Sometimes windows explorer just decides to freeze and windows task manager doesn't want to open. There is certainly a problem with this computer. Please help! Here's my HJT log.

Last week a weird thing started happening when i would open some emails (outlook). Just with certain emails outlook would freeze up and not respond. it would eventually give me an error message and shutdown. I got rid of those emails, but then it started doing it with other ones (that it didn't do it with previously). then this week, my computer has started freezing up when i've tried to open certain folders (specifically Windows>Fonts). I've run BitDefender, Adaware, and Spybot. They've all found things and deleted them, but i'm still having the problems. I've run HJT and would like to know if there's something in the registry or if you have any other suggestions. Thanks.
