Preferred Solution: Computer freezes then restarts no bsods however it should be

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Computer freezes then restarts no bsods however it should be

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.


The only generic information we can give you given the BCC116 is






Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help

Please Help!

I have re-installed Windows 7 64bit for the third time and I still have constant freezing problems with a couple of BSODs and random restarts thrown in. I have checked the hardware side (my processor, RAM, HDD, Video card, psu all seem to be OK. All of the drivers should be up to date. I have attached the BSOD report (hopefully I did it correctly.)

This computer was my first build which I built about a year ago and it originally ran on windows xp sp3 fine and then slowed way down. A dead hdd and retail version of Windows 7 later, I can not get this thing to run longer than 30 minutes before it freezes or restarts. Did I mention... I need help!!

My computer occasionally restarts itself or shuts down. Sometimes it will do a complete restart and I only know it because the Active Desktop Recovery screen is on my desktop suddenly. Sometimes it will freeze and the monitor will go black and flash an error message intermittently ("No input signal" message) after which I can no longer manually restart or shut down the computer, but instead have to turn it off and back on using the main power switch at the back of the tower. Sometimes it will restart but stop at the first black screen to alert me with the statement "S.M.A.R.T. status bad backup and replace error..." and asking me to press F1 to continue (I have an extra HD but moved files off it some time ago). The computer will restart/shutdown/freeze as little as once per day or as often as every 10 minutes if I am doing something like playing in foobar2000 or have photoshop open, anything I happen to enjoy, it seems . I cannot pinpoint these programs as culprits, only that I've noticed that the pc will absolutely do something when foobar2000 is running, for example. It shuts down at seemingly random times too.

Windows XP Pro Version 2002 SP 2, Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.60 GHz 992 MB of RAM, Avast antivirus.

Nothing in device manager looks funny.

Hello,
I am having some serious problems with my PC. It freezes, speakers are sometimes making a RRRRRR noise (last package of bits sent to speakers, I think, being "produced" over and over again), sometimes it just restarts, then it freezes in bootup (even in BIOS or in POST, just EVERYWHERE), sometimes the image on display gets "shattered" (as if the original image, the last frame displayed, got mixed up in lines and squares of different colors), sometimes it freezes in BSOD (that's hillarious), I could go on and on. I am almost sure my motherboard is faulty, but I consider this my "last hope" before making a complaint and trying to get a new mobo. I hope I did everything right (regarding the BSOD reporting protocols).

OS specs: Win 7 x64 Ultimate, OEM, hardware is mostly new (half a year, but one GPU is 3 years old nad my optical drive is 4 y.o.), OS installation is 3 weeks old.

P.S.: I do have Avast antivirus even though in System health report there is "no anti-virus detected" (dunno why), and as you may have noticed, English is not my first language, therefore I apologize for any errors and you may also find some stuff written in Czech in the BSOD regarding files.

Hello there, I'm having a few problems with my computer that I've been unable to figure out on my own. Starting a few months ago my computer began getting a few BSODs, typically while playing The Sims 3. Over time the computer would also restart on it's own with no BSOD, or sometimes just freeze completely. And even when I do get a BSOD, it's not always the same error. Now it happens even when I'm not gaming, and it occurs roughly every other day or so. In fact today I had 3 incidents where the computer seemed to shut off completely. The 3rd time it did that, the fan came on afterwards as if the computer was trying to restart, but that was it. Needless to say I'm a bit concerned and confused as to what's causing the problem.

If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated. I've included an attachment with everything this thread says I would need.

Just a bit of a heads up:

- Windows XP was originally installed, I installed Windows 7 last August or September
- The computer as a whole is roughly 3.5 years old, though some bits(like my sound card and video card) are newer

Hi,
It used to be rather erratic and happen only once every couple of days, then I would sometimes have stretches as long as a week or more without any crashes but recently I've been having them systematically at EVERY startup!
 
I start my computer, it will usually boot up into Windows 10 Pro 64bit and then I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for it to freeze or suddenly restart (more rarely a BSOD). Then starts a cycle of a few more restarts and freezes - always happening almost instantly or after a few minutes - before it eventually stabilizes and can then run reliably for the rest of the day!?
 
This is why I've ruled out temperature problems as it would seem the reverse would happen, i.e. crashing AFTER sufficient time was given to the system to heat up.
 
I have run 2 passes of MemTest without any errors but I've heard that as many as 10 might be needed to reliably exclude RAM problems but seeing how slow it runs the test on my 12Gb of memory, I couldn't be without my PC for that long!? 
 
Other useful troubleshooting info: I've recently upgraded to Win 10 in hope of solving my problems - it was already happening under Win 7. It's a 2nd PC I bought off ebay some +- 2 years ago so I don't know how old exactly it is but you'll see the specs in the attached files I guess.
 
Some of the BSOD errors I collected are (from oldest to most recent):
- Clock Watchdog Timeout
- Machine Check Exception
- PA (dxgkrnl.sys)

Hello All - please let me say thanks in advance for any assistance. I completed the system specs form when I set up my account.

I have an HP Pavilion p6540f with the following:
windows 7 prof 64-bit SP1,
8GB RAM,
two 1TB Seagate hard drives,
an AMD Phenom cpu,
an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card
a Foxconn motherboard.

My problem is BSODs, spontaneous reboots or system freezes. Based on what I've seen on the internet, there seem to be several areas which could cause such a problem: something wrong with the RAM, overheating, or underpowered, the graphics driver, or something in the BIOS that needs upgrading.

As for the memory, I burned memtest to a cd and booted from that and let memtest run over night to check the RAM. It came back with no errors.

As to the overheating and underpowered possibilities, there is a CPU fan, a case fan and the fans associated with the power supply. The case fan and cpu fan seem to be functioning normally. I had the original 250W power supply replaced with a new 350W power supply which also seems to be functioning normally.

As far as the BIOS is concerned, it's AMI v6.04, dated 5/21/2010. There is a file available from HP, and that I've downloaded, called sp49851.exe. This is supposed to upgrade the BIOS to v6.09. I thought upgrading would be good since one of the things it's supposed to fix is a problem related to the machine not coming out of hibernation which sounds similar to what I've been experiencing. I ran this yesterday eveni... Read more

Hi,

First off thanks for reading my post. Basically my computer keeps having errors and they are nothing specific - nothing seems to set them off. Sometimes I'll be working and the computer will just freeze, or restart automatically. Often programs (especially the Windows ones such as Media Player, Live Messenger and IE explorer) will keep crashing with the error report dialog box. I have just reinstalled Windows so it can't be that.

My system specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1.6Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 7300GT with 512MB onboard RAM
1gb DDR RAM
Fully updated XP Home SP2

Thanks for looking

A:Random crashes, restarts, freezes, BSODs help please!!

Since you've just installed windows, you might have a hardware issue and you can try the following if you're sort of a hands-on type or get a knowledgeable friend such as a Geek to help
(1)Fan failure on the cpu or video card causing high temps. If fans appear to running full speed and no strange noises then possibly:
(2)Memory stick failure. If you have 2 ram sticks, try removing one at a time to isolate the issue. If you only have one stick, memory is relatively cheap so buy another 1 gb and repalce it. If you still have same failures, put original stick back in and now will have 2 gb to improve performance once PC is fixed..

Hi,

I'm getting frequent crashes on my HTPC in Windows 7 usually without a blue screen of death (I have had maybe one or two BSODs). Sometimes the computer will crash almost as soon as I switch it on (i.e. when I'm using internet explorer), sometimes it crashes when watching a bluray in media center and sometimes when doing nothing at all.

The system was stable, however about 5 months ago I installed a new CPU and cooler, and about a month or so later I started getting these problems. I have tried the following:

- Virus scan
- Memory check (memtest86 multiple passes)
- CPU stress test (prime95)
- Hard drive check disk
- Graphics card stress (furmark)

The graphics card did show signs of overheating and the PC crashed shortly afterwards, however I have since tried the onboard graphics card and the problems are still there. The fact that the PC can crash shortly after booting also suggests its not this.

I can only think of three things that it can now be:

- Power supply (no idea how to test this, the power supply is a good quality Corsair, with more than enough power for the components and like I said, the system used to be stable).
- Motherboard (could be this I guess - potentially I damaged it when I installed the new CPU)
- Windows 7 (hence the reason I'm here!)

In trying to fix the PC I have used a registry fixer by a reputable company (I forget which one).

For the past few weeks, my computer has been experiencing a couple of different failures. Sometimes it freezes up (including the mouse), sometimes it BSODs (different error messages at different times), and sometimes it just shuts off and restarts, as if the power had been momentarily cut. Sometimes it goes a few days between failures, and sometimes it happens multiple times an hour.

I've tried the following:

update drivers
restore from restore point from before the problem started
memtest86 (ran 11 times with no errors)
reinstall Windows

Here are the specs from the TSG SysInfo:

I have a Compaq Presario SRF710F that has been working fine (except for the past few weeks) since December 2008. The only hardware I've replaced on it was to install a more powerful video card a few years ago.

In the past few weeks, it's started giving me random failures. Sometimes it's a BSOD (the actual error message varies most times), sometimes the whole computer freezes up and I have to restart manually, and sometimes it just turns off suddenly and reboots. Sometimes it goes a few days between errors, and sometimes it can't even finish rebooting from a failure before another one occurs.

It started a few weeks ago when I uninstalled iTunes and installed Samsung Kies and Media Monkey (ditched the iPhone for a Galaxy S3!).

I have taken the following steps:restore from restore point
deep antivirus scan with MWB and MSE
memtest86 (11 passes with no errors detected)
reinstall Windows

Hello. Im a norwegian and have already written much about this problem in norwegian. Im not really good at english. So I can't write all that I've written to Zepto and on a norwegian forum. But I will atleast give you the logfiles...

Not every BSOD seems to have created a log file, some BSODs dont seem to dump properly for example. The BSOD's occur randomly. I can play several hours and end the game normal without problems or it can occur soon after startup without me even getting started up a browser. So personally I do not think this is a overheating problem, graphic card problem or cpu-problem.

I have searched with Vista's memory test, and memtest86. They found no errors and memtest passed 6 times the second time I tried to ran it. The first time I ran it, it froze during testing, so I had to restart and then it passed 6 times.

I have searched my PC with antivirus and found none. I have not been on any suspicious sites either.

The startup-problems is a pain when they occur. Like, last night. Bluescreen. Then I started it up again, but it didnt pass one of the boot up stages. It froze. So after I had waited a while I did a turn off, then I turned it on again. Black screen, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, still a black screen. I repeated this process 4-5 times, every time a black screen that didnt go away, the PC was on, but screen black and I couldnt hear any boot-up sound, only the fan.

Hi. . .

I would like the links to your other dumps. I see in photos & dumps that you are updated w/ Vista SP1. When did you update? One photo shows WERCON screen - TrustedInstaller crashing constantly since at least October 2nd. When did the system problems begin?

Can you run in SAFEMODE w/ any greater stability than normal windows boot-up?

Please run msinfo32 when possible & save in NFO format (NFO file extension). I am not sure if it will be in English or not - but OK for now.

Also, I'd like a Vista System Health report in HTML format. Please do the following:
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt (DOS) screen will appear - type the following:

Code:
perfmon /report
It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file.

Please zip it & msinfo32 NFO file up and attach to your next post.

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

So my computer won't start Windows. Every time I turn the computer on and try to boot Windows 7 it has the splash screen that says "Starting Windows" and then it flashes a BSOD (literally flashes, way too fast for me to read the error message). My computer then immediately restarts and goes in this endless loop of trying to start up and restarting. I've never encountered a problem like this before, and using repair options by booting from the installation disc didn't help. I also tried booting in safe mode, and that didn't work either.

I'm running off of my flash drive right now that has ubuntu on it and I can access my boot drive (a 60GB SSD) and my 1TB HDD. I tried installing ubuntu on my HDD but booting from it just tries to boot windows.
What can I do to solve this problem? I can provide additional information if necessary.

I have this problem for some months, that i get random BSODs/computer restarts
First of all, a problem i have for some months: When i use mozila firefox browser, the computer crashes after a few minutes
And when i start BFBC2, it instantly reboots

But lately, it is happening more often, the computer restarts randomly when browsing in chrome, or playing in games (such as garrysmod and fallout new vegas)

And i'm not sure that it is a BSOD, because i only have two minidumps that are pretty old

I don't know if this is a software or hardware problem, because i tried installing drivers and it didn't help, and some months ago i reformatted windows and it didn't help either

The GPU Temperature is about 60*C after the computer restarts which is normal
And the CPU Temperature is about 59*C too

I'm planning on upgrading the hardware, probably the GPU
but i don't know if it is the problem, or is it the processor/psu/ram/motherboard/etc..

Included perfmon and bsod dump/system report file, but i'm not sure if the problems i have are BSODs since i don't get the actual blue screen and i only have two old minidumps
The computer just randomly restarts

Dumps are old...but the Aug 3rd one points to problems with your graphics drivers.
Please renew: ati driver

Make SURE you delete old first.
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Driver Sweeper

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

- Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
- Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
- Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
- Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
- More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

Over the past week my computer has been freezing and restarting without warning. This does not seem to be a BSOD, as I've had trouble with one before and that used to stay on the screen until I restarted: this automatically restarts.

First I thought it was random, but all of 4 times have been whilst playing various games on Steam. Each time also seemed to be in response to an action within the game: I click on something in the menu - freeze and restart; I get killed in-game - freeze and restart.

My computer is powerful enough to run all the games I have on full graphics setting and I have never had any trouble like this before; it is recent and has only started within the last week or so.

Hello,

I bought a HP P6510f PC about 1.5 years ago. In the past month the computer started having problems. The first sign of problems was powering on and the computer would not boot up but instead go to a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner of screen. I ran a diagnostic through the internal software, I believe it's called PC Doctor and all componenets checked out fine - RAM, CPU, Hard Drive, etc. I then decided to reinstall windows 7. After installing the computer started to work like new again, except the next day it restarted itself and went to a black screen. It's done this a few times now. Sometime it boots up fine, other times it gets stuck and won't boot, just a black screen or the HP screen welcome screen with option for setup f10 (though won't respond).

Any ideas what might be going on? Are there ways I can check for internal malfunctioning hardware?

I did go into event viewer and noticed a few errors under System and Application that I have pasted below -

I tried swapping out my Radeon HD 5770 with an older nVidia 6600GT and ran the computer with the same settings and was able to play World of Warcraft without it crashing. I assumed this meant that the video card was faulty, so I RMA-ed it to XFX, and they tested it and found some other fault with the card and sent me a new one. But the problems persist, so I am afraid there are other problems. I have tried every fix I know of and all that I can think of now is to seek your help with figuring out my minidumps.

So far there's a bunch of STOP 0x124 errors. Check this link out: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html
Basically, this is either a hardware failure - or a severe incompatibility of a hardware, driver, or software program/device.

It's getting late and I've gotta get up early. Post back with any questions.

Please help.
My computer is restarting itself. It has restarted itself about 6 times now, in 2 days.
It has frozen 2 times, in 2 days.

Please help. It is really annoying.
It seems to be when i connect to the internet - MOST OF THE TIMES.

I have Ad-Aware professional, and in ad watch, this comes up in EVENTS when i start up my computer, and havent loaded any program yet. this sounds suspicious, many trojans rename their files to kernel.dll or similar.

Hello,

A while ago, I found a problem with my PSU and it resolved the auto restart problem:

Now it starts again, but It has nothing to do with the PSU. It also freezes sometimes.

It should give me a blue screen, because that's how the system is configured, but it doesn't.

I think there are corrupted files. Now when I want to check for corrupted files with Start-->run--> sfc /scannow then I get:

Windows File Protection could not be initiate a scan of protected system files. The specific code is 0x000006ba [The RPC Server is unavailable.]

I have tried this fix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/296241

No luck at all, please help, I'm thinking of throwing this computer out of the window

I see in the antivirus event viewer from 2 days ago that:

Sign of "NSIS:StartPage-B [Trj]" has been found in "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0ZJY4Z3M\windows-washer-6-02-466i[1].exe\nsis.hdr" file.

HELP: Computer Restarts ALONE: FREEZES *HELP*

Hi,

Well, I have a computer that has been giving me some small problems... The PC works fine but only while I am using it. If I leave it on by itself for about 15 minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less... it freezes and I have to click the reset button to restart! I don't know why it's doing this.

Another problem is, sometimes I can be doing anything on the PC and the screen turns black and restarts on its own for no reason.. well, there's is one but that's why Im posting this.. I believe the problem has to be related to the freezing but I don't know what! .. Can it be the HDD, OS, or is it Power Failure? Please help!

Thanks in advance,

I think you are overclocking your hardware. If your not, your hardware may be defective. 9c means hardware failure, such as processor, RAM, or hard drive(although i dont think its possible to overclock a harddrive, im just pointing out that it is critical hardware) Try turning overclocking off, even if you never enabled that, some viruses/bugs and other nasties can change those settings(mine does that all the time)

Hello all.. well, some time during august I was forced to format my computer due to a virus corrupting the file system. soon after that my computer began to freeze/restart itself, and I didn't understand why.

so.. yesterday, I re-formatted & the computer was fine for a few hours. then, the computer started to freeze/restart itself AGAIN.
As I was re-formatting yesterday, I noticed that whenever the system loaded windows it would start to crash, even when I put the windows sp1 disk into the CD drive to install it.

When I used a bootdisk to get to DOS & *never* restarted.
But why did it start freezing/restarting again? I don't understand. Makes no sense.

Every time the computer restarts/freezes it also runs chkdsk before starting up. It always fixes random things.. like MSN, Diablo, System32, etc. & I also don't understand that.

AND.. I did a system restore to yesterday, and uninstalled Diablo II to see if that was causing the problem, because it started when I loaded the game, logged in, and went to join a game.

So yeah, just some random information to lead to the cause
thanks a MILLION times!

I finally got my new computer working but for some reason after I leave it on for about 10 minutes it will restart by itself or freeze.

I think this might be a heat problem, but the temperature of the CPU never exceeds 50 degrees celcius. The mobo ttemperature is around 35 degrees celcius. I have a fan in the back blowing air out and one in the front taking air in.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

please people, bear with me. im sure you have seen a ton of these, but this one isn't like any one i have heard of. i cant figure it out and its driving me up a wall.

An interesting thing is that when i run Team Fortress 2 in the background, it doesnt seem to freeze at all. i have 2 GB of RAM, TF2 takes up approx 450mb of RAM. i dont know why my computer would run so well with that much ram being taken up. I tried doing a harddisk error read through windows, but it froze 40% through the scan of the free space (part 5 of 5).

i couldn't seem to get a RAM scan to run properly. i tried using the WINDIAG device put out by windows, but none of the commands worked. any other possible ways to scan my memory for errors?

I am in a dorm at Ohio State, and i had these same problems last year living in a dorm. they eventually went away, and now that i am back here i am having issues again. except now, i have to restart my comp at least 20 times a day just to get things done. running itunes seems to make it freeze within 5 minutes.

possible causes i have come up with that i really have no idea how to check either because it freezes before scan is complete, or i cant get the check running, or i just dont know how to:

Bad PSU connection to outlet
Bad PSU overall (it is a 400w PSU for the record...)
RAM Failure
HDD Failure

So I have a windows 7 computer and the problem is that for some reason my computer freezes up or restarts itself and when it is back on, the lan hardware is no longer working (it appears to say that either the lan is not plugged in or that the hardware is broken). So, I restart my computer again and the lan problem is no longer an issue. However, the computer goes back to the same cycle after a few minutes or hours. I have check for viruses, spyware, checked for registry problem, defragmented my computer and the problem still occurs. I am pretty good with computers but this problem appears to not go away and it is pretty annoying. Please help me out.

My computer is custom made
it is using windows 7 ultimate, it has a Intel motherboard which is DP35DP media series.
I have 8gigs of ram, Intel core 2 quad cpu model number Q9550 @ 2.83ghz.
1.5 tb of harddrive, ATI RADEON HD 4800 series graphics card, and a network adapter pci (since my motherboard network lan is not working)

If anyone needs more information do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for the help

Just recently my computer (WIN2K, Duron 700) has started randomly locking up. It had been working just fine for months and I haven't added any new software or changed any settings. I can be in the middle of something or just leave it for a bit and come back and it siezes. Control>Alt>Delete does nothing. What's worse, after I kill the power, sometimes it won't even come back to life the first power up. If I can get to the point where it boots in safe mode, then doing a normal shutoff usually gets a good restart (until it locks again). There are no error messages, and the reboots take much longer than normal. Plenty of RAM and disk space. I thought it might be the video card (it is maybe 6 mos old), but I watched a DVD of Queen at Wembly (great concert) all the way through and had zero problems! Any good thoughts?

Now this machine was bought mid-late 2011 and was repaired maybe 3 times.

We got the machin back from our uncle last week (friday) because the hard drive was replaced with a 1TB Seagate one and it was working fine up until yesterday. I was watching youtube vids when it suddenly hung up. It was a normal occurence after getting it back from him but this one took way too long. Maybe lasted a minute or so so I decided to press the restart button. That's when it started to get more hangs. It would work ok when typing/watching after the initial boot up but would hang up when loading more than maybe 2 applications. It was also noticably slower when opening programs. I did the hardware check (right click and check for repairs from properties) and after that things started to smooth out. Installed Dragon Age Origins and got some hangs as well then it restarted on its own again!

The boot up takes nearly forever and when it reaches the home screen it takes a while to stabilize as well.

Where could the problem lie? After consulting reddit they said it's probably a malfunctioning hard drive again...

Lockups/reboots can be either hardware or software.

Yes, it could be the HDD. You can test the HDD using the drive manufacturers disk tools. The tools are available from drive manufacturers website.

I am running Windows XP on a built computer. Since day one I have had problems with the computer freezing or restarting. Being that it is a built computer, I am starting to think not all the components were new. I have had this computer for 3 years, and I really want to fix this. I found this forum, and I like what I have read from you guys.

Every time it freezes the error report says device driver(mainly the graphics card) or anti-virus error. I have ran a few different anti-virus programs like Norton, AVG and Kaspersky. I would like to know if it is hardware, software or a virus/trojan that my programs can't read or clean.

Hi, I have an issue with my computer.
I run Win7 and lately I've had the problem that my computer freezes on startup - in fact, just as the first pixel of the Windows logo lights up on the screen it just won't go any further. The screen keeps saying "Windows is starting" but I can leave it like that for hours and nothing will happen.

Then I tend to press the start button and leave it for a few hours at which point it'll start as normal (complaining of course that Windows wasn't shut down correctly and if I want to try a repair or start as normal. I've tried both options and neither makes a difference - It'll start as normal.)

It also starts normally if I don't do a restart.
So the problem always happens if the computer was on, then turned off and then turned on again within a shorter period of time.

Another - and possibly related problem, is that when I work with my folders and move stuff around in them, I oftenmanage to overwork them so they will not show the files properly anymore or open them.

Solutions tried:
Reset to a previous point where I knew it worked
Insert the Win7 CD and asked it to repair
Asked for it to repair any possible problems after turning off windows incorrectly and getting the option during startup

Neither of these have worked

Hello, i've been having a re-occuring problem with my pc. This error has only occured during gaming. Visual indication would be the screen freezing on a specific frame. Sound would indiciate a reptition/loop of the last half second of noise produced by the game. And for my pc case, i have a led that connects to the HDD that blinks to show HDD activity. When the freezing first starts, it would blink in a constant cycle, then a few moments later, the light would turn off, My screen would still be frozen, and the sound would not loop anymore, but only play the last sound genereated by the game. On another occasion, I decided not to manually push the restart button to get the pc going again, and I decided to wait and see what happens. The HDD LED light flashed and the sound came up for a split second then restarted.

Things I've done to try to troubleshoot;
1. Chckdsk (Using regular chkdsk in run will check to about 2nd or 3rd step, then it says errors found cannot run in read only mode.
2. chkdsk /f
3. Ran SEAGATE diag tools. Tests run: SMART check, Short drive self test, short generic test. Long self drive test. All tests came back as PASSED

My computer has been freezing and restarting a lot lately. It cannot go more than 1 hour without doing so. It happens especially when I go to game. I'm not sure what could be causing it. I do know that it is not an overheating issue in the computer. I have 3 fans running in it. It is also not a memory issue I have 2gb of RAM and 300g Hardrive. It is also not a dust issue, I've my computer and everything seems to be clean. I have also disable that my computer does not restart during systems failures through the BIOS and also through my computer. Not sure what is causing it, but any help would great greatly appreciated. (Surprised I was able to post hehe)

A:Computer constantly freezes and restarts on its own.

A computer that freezes is usually caused by overheating or a failing Power Supply Unit. Even though you have done this, Take the side off the of the computer and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning. Look at the label for the PSU and report the Make, Model# and Wattage. Boot into Setup (Bios) and go to PC Health or some such, Post +12V line for the PSU and the temperatures.
Also try running in a Clean Boot.
