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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi, I have an annoying little (or maybe big, its hard to tell with PC stuff) problem. Every so often my system will just freeze on me (and when it does the HDD light is off constantly). There seems to be nothing I can do to fix the problem other than hit the reset button. There is no set pattern to the problem as sometimes I will be not even using my computer and I will come back to it and its frozen up. I tried a stress test last night using BurnIn Test which showed everything working just fine. I've used Tuneup Utilities to fix my registry and check the HDD for errors but the problem persists.

My system is GA G33M-DS2R with Intel Core 2 duo (E4500) 2.20GHz and 4GB RAM, 64 bit Windows 7. Any ideas? Anyone?

PS. I tried to attach the latest .dmp file but the file size was too big, any help?

My computer works fine for ages then the screen freezes, the mouse freezes and all i am left with is the screen frozen.

THIS MUST BE HARDWARE RELATED. I spent 3 days trying things with software and today i successfully reformatted and set up my computer again... everything was running smoothly and then poof it was frozen. It froze while i was moving a document from one folder to another... saying this it freezes no matter what i am doing.

What can cause this? I think i will have to take it into a repair shop but i would much prefer if you could give me some recommendation and perhaps some diagnostic tools i could use?

I'm not even going to pretend to know what I'm talking about...this might be a problem with the network, gaming stuff or something completely unrelated.

We have two computers networked. Lately one of them has been freezing up - the mouse still moves around but absolutely nothing can be clicked on. Pressing control-alt-delete doesn't bring up the task manager. There's usually a lot of swearing and then we reboot.

It SEEMS to be freezing up more often when my brother is on the other computer playing his games (such as Spore, Command & Conquer, etc...my computer-savvy sister has updated the RAM and video stuff so the gaming computer has no problems running).

My question is, could the fact the computers are networked have anything to do with one of them constantly freezing up?

After the computer freezes we usually have to reboot, which works for a time. However, we do get this message (might be completely unrelated):

Could not load file or assembly ?MOM.Implementation, Version=2.0.2895.26680, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e? or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Help is appreciated (!!!), please ask for more information if necessary.

Its an HP. P3 800 mhz, 192 mb ram, running windows xp home, 4mb onboard video memory. If i had to guess i would assume that it is the 4mb video memory that is causing the problem but i dunno.

my computer has really been giving me some problems lately.
it used to be that every so often when running a movie file or webcam or anything of that sort, my computer would freeze completely and i'd have to restart. now its gotten past that stage, and will often freeze even if im not doing anything.
does anyone have any ideas?
i have 512 mb of ram, so I dont know if that could be the problem.
i have an nvdia geforce 4 mx... maybe that?
or my power supply? a 400 watt stock one.
definitely isn't a software problem either.

Hello,

My mom contacted me yesterday about a strange thing her computer is doing. It is freezing up. The appearance is that it is in sleep mode, but won't wake up. From what I can tell, sleep mode isn't turned on. I ran a virus scan with no major bugs found (just adware stuff).

I am attaching the system logs and an error dump from last night. Is this an error with hardware dying or a software prob?

She is running XP SP3 with a 2.4GHz Celeron (YUCK!) and 248 Megs of Ram.

Thanks in advance!

Hello.

=]

Recently A computer I build has been freezing.

It generally runs fine. No lag, or other issues. Video and audio work fine.

It's basically a 1.33 ghz amd athlon processor (I know. old as hell. but remember I built this using spare parts) 1 gig of ram and a 128 geforce videocard. The machine is running xp and i'm on it right now and it runs fine.

However; and seemingly randomly; the computer complete freezes. Not lags, or slows down, it completely freezes state and you'll be forced to start. There is no recognition of this in my program or security logs.

This has given my suspicion of lack of memory, which is why I upgraded from 512 to 1 gig recently. However disapointingly the freezes still occur.

The freezes appear to only happen after expended use of IDLING. I can be playing a videogame and it won't freeze. However if I allow the computer to idle overnight i'll wake up with it frozen.

There is one minor issue I have noticed and that is the fan of the videocard has broken. I was curious if you think the broken fan may be the cause of this? (the videocard gets relatively hot to the touch. But if this were the case why would it freeze seemingly randomly & during idle. Basically; would an overheating card *Really* cause the computer to freeze randomly?)

Do you think the problem is more likely related to driver / hardware malfunction?

Any additional information prior to formatting and reinstalling all drivers would be appreciated.... Read more

A:computer keeps freezing.

From previous experiences i would recommend reinstalling the operating system as self-built systems can cause hardware issues with the operating system installed and sometimes cause the computer to frequently crash. So reinstall the operating system and if this fails to resolve the problem there is likely to be a malfunction in the hard-drive.

Hope this helps

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.

I use windows XP
It freezes quite randomly. Sometimes only a few time a day. Sometimes much more regularly. The freezes only last for about 15 seconds each time. Whe it freezes, nothing responds. Even the mouse.

I dont know anything about computers so I will attach a part of my belarc advisor snapshot to give you an idea of my computer setup.

From talking to people there are some other possible causes.
overheating - I do ask alot from my PC in fairness and am often running lots of very resource hungry applications. PC certainly doesn't feel hot on the ouside of case though.

Someone else who had this sort of problem said it was to do with their graphics card. Another person said it was to to with their soundcard...?....

There are also a few theories about power supply issues.


Cheers

I have a Compaq Presario 7000. It has XP Pro with 256MB RAM. For some reason the computer freezes after 30 minutes or so of being powered on. I thought it was bad RAM.

I remove the old ram and replace with new one and still does it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Test for overheating.

Pull the side cover and place a small desk type fan blowing air into the case. If it stops, you have found the cause; overheating.

If that does not work, restart the system in safe mode. While in safe mode run an app that will stress the system like prime95. If it runs prime95 for an hour or two without errors, you have a problem with a driver, software app, etc. If it locks up in safe mode, you have a hardware issue.

Hello my mo/bo is a Foxconn A7GM-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, and CPU is an amd 64 x2 5000+, and my computer has been fine up until a week ago, my pc keeps freezeing every 20 mins.

I did ad-aware searches virus searches ect. Nothing was found, sometimes it even freezes up on my mo/bo screen when I have to manually shut it off and on agian because of the freezes. So I recently have checked my ram with memtest it all passed, i did disk check, then i just recently reformated.

Once i reformated it hasent froze up until not to long ago it froze for the 1st time. But my pc just froze agian while playing a game, this time when i restarted it wanted me to load defult cmos by pressuing f2, then when i booted up it looked like there was no drivers for the vidoe card.Then it froze agian, then i restarted and when it did it found new hardware.

Any suggestions?

In the past four days, my computer froze three times. I checked my computer with hijackthis, spybot, ad aware, and Antivir, so there's no problems there. I just don't know what's wrong.

My only guess would be maybe i'm overusing my power supply?

I Have a 400-watt supply and using it is:
everything in my sig
a wireless internet card
an ethernet card
also, a CD rom drive and an A drive.

That's about it. I would think 400 watts is fine for it.
it's probably something completely different though.

It wouldn't seem to be overloaded to me.

Did you check the temps???

Pull the cover and make sure all fans are rotating and the system is not dirty. Be sure to check the power supply fan. Try running with the cover off and see if the problem continues. Could be a number of causes.

Are you up to date with all system updates??
