Lenovo Y-70-70 randomly freezes, lags, randomly.

Q: Lenovo Y-70-70 randomly freezes, lags, randomly.

HI my Lenovo y70-70 freezes and hangs from time to time. At first it was only once in awhile and only for a few secconds. It's gotten worse and is now more frequent and can last from more thea a minute. It occurs in games, in webbrowsers and in other programs as well, like word. I've had problems with flashing screen but got it replaced. This problem started before replacing the screen. Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Y-70-70 randomly freezes, lags, randomly.

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.)


This problem first occured a couple months ago. In the beginning it happend 3-4 times a week but as time went by it sarted to freeze more and more. It's really frustrating and I'm not able to fix it. I've tried everything but nothing seems to work. I tried other USB ports, I tried to disable the power saving option in the device manager, I tried to reinstall the drivers and I read lots of threads with this topic, but it keeps doing this extremely annoying thing. But what exactly? I'm either browsing the internet or playing a game, the mouse stops, and then I hear the windows sound as if something is disconnected, but a couple seconds later it works again. Rarely it stays 'dead' but pulling out the cable and pushing it back into the USB port fixes it. Then it starts over and over again. Sometimes it occurs 4-5 times a minute(!!!!!) but sometimes it works fine for more than an hour. Maybe reinstalling the windows would fix the problem but that's the last thing I want to do because I have a lot of things installed and installing them again is really time consuming. I even tried another USB mouse but nothing changed. So I think my mouse is NOT the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance...

Hello. My problem with my Vista computer is very complex

Recently, when I login into my computer it takes a long time to load, such as a white screen before the wallpaper loads. In addition, when I try to double-click an icon, nothing happens and i have to wait until about a minute or two before i finally get a response.

For example, whenever i try to close a webpage (the "X" in the upper right corner), nothing happens and I have to keep clicking and all of a sudden, the page finally closes. Another example, i whenever I try to hold and drag a file or folder, it will not let me as the screen temporary freezes. However, I can still scroll with my mouse. It's just that it randomly takes a longer time to click and its frustrating.

I used multiple cleaning software such as CCleaner, JetClean, Auslogics BoostSpeed, SuperAntiSpyware, Wise Registry cleaner, etc and nothing seems to work. I had went through a defragment of my disk drive and it seems that my computer is slower than before.

My disk drive has 185 GB of free space and has a captivity of around 426 GB. I also had deleted some of my larger files in hopes that my computer would work more properly.

I would prefer a newer computer as my Vista computer is about 8 years old, but I am on a fixed income. I would like some tips on how I can fix my problem.

A:Clicking with a mouse nonresponsive; screen randomly lags and freezes

I seemed to have solved my problem. Earlier, I had downloaded a 15-day trial of a program called RegCure Pro. I had about 2150 issues, including about 200 "System Issues", in my computer. I also had disabled some of my startup programs. I had restarted my computer and I no longer have issuers with a hanging screen whenever i click something.

However, I get this popup message "Server Busy’ and the following text. ‘This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy Choose ‘Switch to’ to activate the busy program and correct the problem." Beneath this are three buttons, from left to right they’re labelled Switch To… , Retry and Cancel. How do i get rid of that. At least I now get a response when I click something on my screen.

That said, I would still want some advice and what I could do just in case this problem comes up again. Thanks.

Hello, I'm new on these forums and quite not a tech-savvy person, so I apologize if I sound confusing or the details are missing. I'm on my wits end regarding my 2-year old Lenovo laptop, which has started to get wonky yesterday. The worse thing is that I'm not sure what's the real problem at all I?ll try to detail everything as I remember it, so pardon for the word vomit.

It started when my laptop suddenly froze. I had a bunch of programs open back then (can't remember all of them, but there's Google Chrome with multiple tabs, writemonkey, foobar2000 and a couple of open folders). The cursor changed to 'busy' and for a few moments I let it be. When I noticed it had frozen completely, I tried to move the cursor and it started to lag. Alt-tabbing and ctrl-alt-del won't work, so I went for the power button.

I started it up again and chose to open Windows normally. Everything seemed okay until I realized that the usual startup programs didn't open (Aeria, OpenOffice, etc) and it was lagging. The mouse is working, if I mouse over files on my desktop they seemed to react, but after a while everything just....slows down. I tried opening programs, task manager, even shut down -- nothing. I looked at my laptop's LED lights and everything's all lit up. So power-button again.

This time I went for safe mode and tried to pinpoint the problem. I thought it could be malware so I tried running Malwarebytes. Lo and behold, it...froze. I tried to wait it out but it stayed stuck. I had the... Read more

A:Laptop randomly freezes/lags, can't even finish full antivirus scans

Establish a Clean Boot, test your hardware, check the logs and System Resources, test System Files and the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

If this happens when using Chrome, try uninstalling it to use Firefox and IE10 which aren't pernicious spyware phoning your every move to advertisers. You can always reinstall it if you miss the company.

Hello, i bought a Lenovo G50-70 about 3 months ago and i was happy about it until it suddenly began to randomly freeze. For less then a second everything freezes, even the mouse. It happens very frequently, at least once every 10-15 seconds and the problem is easily observable if you are listening to music or watching some video.I mainly use the computer to develop software, reading e-mails, watching videos on YouTube and sometimes to play some videogames, so I'm almost certain that the problem wasn't a virus because I'm careful about web contents and also because a couple of antivirus and malwarebytes didn't find anything. Moreover I didn't notice any suspicious software running or getting all system resources.I did a factory reset and the problem vanished, but sometimes, after hours of quite intense use of the computer it happens again. When it happens under these conditions the problem simply disappears with a reboot, while it was a persistent problem before. However a couple of days ago I installed DirectX to play a game and immediately after the installation the problem occurred again. I managed to "solve" it by recovering old system settings. I really wasn't able to find a solution or even find the cause of the problem, but maybe DirectX installation is a good hint. I did a hardware check using Lenovo Solution Center and i got one warning regarding the stress test of the Intel HD graphic card. Here's the report:Passed

My Problem
I have 2 problems with my computer, both of which require me to hold the power button down for 5 seconds to hard reboot (and I wait 30 seconds before turning it back on because I heard that was good somewhere...). My computer either:

A) randomly loses signal to the monitor, resulting in the monitor going to sleep while my computer is still on. When this happens, audio from iTunes continues to play normally, but I cannot pause it or control the volume which I can usually do from my keyboard. This leads me to believe that I have absolutely no control over my computer when my computer loses signal with the monitor. This can happen at any time... when I'm playing a videogame, browsing the internet, or when the computer is locked and I'm not using it at all.

B) randomly freezes. This locks up the computer completely and I am unable to move my mouse or control anything. I don't know if audio continues to play because this hasn't occurred while I've been listening to something on iTun... Read more

A:Computer randomly freezes AND randomly loses signal (Hardware issue)

This is my motherboard
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1156 - GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.0)
though I'm not sure if mine is rev 1.0 or rev 1.1

I'm hoping that the issue isn't the CPU, Graphics Card, or Hard Drive, as those would cost me the most trouble / money.

Could it be an issue with the BIOS? I don't really know what that is or how it works.

Myself, along with a couple of other people on this forum have been experiencing the exact same problem. I also found some other people on other virus help forums who have the same problem as well. This new ?virus? seems to be spreading, and no one seems to know what to do about it. It just started during the beginning of April.

The main problem is that my computer just keeps randomly freezing. It can happen every 10 - 15 minutes or even up to an hour. The computer just freezes and you can?t do anything except for seeing your mouse move around. Ctrl alt delete does nothing at all either. It just locks up and you are forced to manually turn off the computer and restart it. It is extremely frustrating. It all started during the beginning of April where my computer restarted on its own, then it just started freezing up.

I ran several anti virus programs, spy ware removal programs, and an AVG scan and could find nothing of any relevance. I even had a technician come to my house and he couldn?t find anything. He thinks that it?s the memory or ram, but I highly doubt that, my laptop is only like 2 years old.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a new virus I believe and it is driving me insane, thank you!

I have ran a Malware Antimalware Bites scan, AVG, Ad Aware, Spybot, and SUPERAntiSpyware scans, all found nothing.

My questions and doubts:

The laptop is placed on a 30 degree inclined stand, due to my surgery I need to only lie down to use the computer. It is turned on about 4-10 hours a day.


It?s been working fine since bought, when I play games, the temperature of CPU and GPU goes up to 75 C for about 1-2 hours, no problem, usually I don?t play longer than 3 hours.

Since March, it freezes randomly about 1 hour after startup when I?m using designing software along with web browsing. Temperature is about 48-53 C, I have screenshots of the temperature so... Read more

Hi. I have a problem with the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15D. I was using it normally one day, using Google Chrome, when it suddenly stopped responding. The whole PC stopped responding (although I could still use the mouse normally) and I had to manually shut it off. When I tried turning it back on, it took at least 10 minutes, and froze again about 5 minutes later. Now, the computer freezes after 10 minutes of use, even when I'm not even logged in. This has been happening for days. If anyone can help me, thank you in advance. (I'm using Windows 10 as well)

Hello! My Lenovo Yoga has started freezing randomly; it does not matter what is currently running. This also includes starting up the laptop. Sometimes when the power button is pressed, the laptop will not start, but instead will present a black screen for around 1 minute then start up. During startup the power light is not flashing but is fully lit showing that the laptop should be up. The wifi will also sometimes stop working altogether, even sometimes removing the wifi option completely in the wifi options. Even when the wifi card in the lenovo is reset, the wifi does not come back. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wifi driver. I have already contacted Lenovo before, but instead of fixing the problem, they somehow sent me into an infinite blue screen loop. They claimed that my bios was corrupted and reset my computer completely, losing all files. This fixed the problem for about 12 hours. Currently, the only softwares I have downloaded are Eclipse IDE and Java. Could someone please help me fix this? I possibly received a defective unit?

A:BSOD randomly and PC freezes randomly

Hello TrueYears and welcome to Sevenforums!

You said that you've experience BSODs. For allowing us to debug your errors you've been experiencing, we'll need a little information.


If you're having trouble enabling minidumps, maybe you'll find this speech handy.

Your Minidump content should be in the folder at the path C:\Windows\Minidump. If there's no files inside, make sure minidumps are enabled by -
Go to Start, then Run, then type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery button
Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.

Next time you'd experience a BSOD, a dump is supposed to be generated. When it's generated, wrap it up in a zip and upload it.

I got an X1Y3 with i7-8650U back in September and since then I have been experiencing exoradic, random input lag. Initially I thought that it was an issue with a driver or Windows 10 as the problem only reappeared a couple of times, so I thought an update had fixed the issue. However, for the last few days the problem has been occurring quite often. Regardless of the load on the CPU, everything on the screen freezes for 2-4 seconds intervals repeatedly. Input form trackpoint, touchpad, keyboard, USB mouse or touchscreen are delayed as well. This behavior is nor permanent and when the issue occurs it generally despair after 20 or so minutes. Last time it happened I opened Intel XTU (the chip is running with the factory profile) and there was not abnormal power consumption, temperature or processor speed being registered.Restarting the device doesn't change anything. Once logged-in and after a few minutes of light work, the issue appears. Has anybody experience something similar? any guidance here would be appreciated.

There are many definitions to keyboard lags so I will specify and be more specific.When I am playing ANY game on my computer, or things that run the CPU at 100% anything (including the mouse) has a delayed reaction, then once it does press the button it seems to hold it in for a period of time, such as 4 ? 5 seconds.Let me tell you, I have done everything I can.

Recently when performing tasks on my computer my mouse tends to double click when single clicking about 40% of the time, which is a bit odd...but I wasn't sure if it was due to the fact that the mouse is 5 years old/has old drivers or if it was due to a virus. My computer today started up with all my virus programs disabled for some reason.

I used adwcleaner and it found some things on my computer...so I shall post a log of that along with the rest of the info.

A:Mouse double clicking at times...computer lags randomly?

Also as an update when shutting down my computer, it stalled on the shutdown screen for a really long time.

We just got our Yoga a few days ago and we immediately noticed problems with lagging and periodic freezes. This happens when we browse the web or do any other activities.Task managers does not show any CPU/Mem/IO spikes.I've done some searching and performed these changes:- Upgraded BIOS to the latest version recommended by Lenovo tools ;- Disabled HW acceleration in Chrome- Changed cooling policy while on battery to Active.Nothing above helped.  We are pretty much getting ready to return laptop to Best Buy. Anybody has a similar issue?

Have no clue as to patterns - genuinely seems random. Previously had IE6 latest service pack loaded and it would freeze on average - 6 times a day - with no *.dmp file even though the Drwatson registry key was installed! Switched to Firefox, and immediate improvement - it now freezes randomly once every 2 days or so - often occurs when zonealarm receive green lights are on, and sometimes when many apps are open at once. Also no blue BSD would show - it just stops working - no mouse response, no keyboard response - not even Ctrl Alt Del - wait 5 minutes still nothing.

I have a 17' Samsung 700Z laptop about two years old. Lately, it has been freezing up. I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or a driver issue or something else. It usually freezes when I am gaming but sometimes freezes when I'm using Firefox as well. Freezes, no mouse movement, audio glitches out and the only fix is to restart it. It will freeze within ten minutes again though.

I consider myself relatively security conscious. I don't take risks, know most of the warning signs, etc. 
Despite this, something goofy happened today that definitely freaked me out. 
I'm on a 6 month old XPS 15 9550. Have used/use malwarebytes for offline malware scanning, windows firewall, and windows 10's Defender software.
Working in Premiere, editing video. Computer crashes. First time. 
Start back up, log in. 
Only recycle bin icon remains on my desktop. All other folder/files gone. 
Open windows explorer, some folders are still listed, but they are all empty. 
Searching for my user account's "USER" folder, gone. 
Did some reading, did a system restore, no change. Came across an article about a virus that hides folders. Scanned computer, nothing. Malware, nothing. Kapersky, nothing. Figured out that the folders weren't really "empty", just all the contents were "hidden". 
Set folder options to show all hidden files, then started manually "un-hiding" all the one's I could think of that were obviously not supposed to be hidden. 
Ran process explorer, no red flags jumped out at me. 
Additionally - I randomly opened the user profiles/security/permissions, and found nothing strange, EXCEPT that my loggin, which I've only ever used, had all permissions removed except "read". I tried changing the permissions, and met with errors. Computer crashed.... Read more

First of all, im sorry about my bad english, and im sorry if i started the thread in the wrong place.

Okay, im not sure how could I describe this on title, sorry. For a month(im not sure) my computer was saying an error like "Phlanderingshahs.dll not found" or something like that upon the start of the computer, i dont remember. I wrote down to the google, there was no any information about "Phlanderingshahs.dll".

However, computer was doing every function normally. Im not sure if my problem is related with that anyway, just wanted you to know. But few days ago, i go out for 5-6 hours, my pc was on, and when i came back, the computer was ULTRA SLOW, wasn't responsing to any application, i reseted pc few times, nothing changed, i couldnt even use internet to ask help. Sometimes after i reset the computer, it gives an error about "werfault.exe".

I reinstalled the operating system, deleted everything in harddisks including system files and stuff. It kinda worked, but today it slowly happens again, computer sometimes doesnt respond to applications like skype, freezes, needs a reset.

My PC will freeze at random, sometimes as it's booting up, sometimes 5 minutes into use, as I'm writing it hasn't frozen for 20 mins or so. There is no indicator as to when it will happen.

Things I have changed since the problem started: I added an Audigy SoundBlaster SE and intalled the drivers over a week ago. I added a 2.1 speaker system (incl. sub) but I have experienced freezing even when the power is switched off at the mains. I added a D-Link USB hub a few days ago which has my modem, external HDD and MP3 cable plugged in. Other than that I have installed MAME32 (a computer game emulator) and that's about it.

I'm running WinXP Pro (SP2), I have a 400w power supply, AMD 2700xp, 512 DDR. Anything else you need to know please ask.

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) On my PC which is nearly 3 years old, I have so far only installed a few things: McAfee, Mozilla firefox, Nvidia drivers, sound drivers, USB internet card, etc.. I've been trying to figure out this problem I've been having where the whole computer freezes and I cannot move mouse, ctrl alt del, or anything.. and I have to manually restart the computer with the power button for it to come back on.. I'll boot back up, everything will be fine then Boom, does it again. I don't get any error code or anything.

I really don't think it is a heat issue like I have seen for many problems like this as I have liquid cooling and from what I see a lot of fans in my PC (2 on each side, 1 in front, 1 on back, and I think 2 on the motherboard) also I have registry mechanic and have scanned and fixed all issues with the registry and still get this problem.

I do not know much about computers at all and really have no clue what is going on!

I really need help as this is stopping me doing anything on my PC.

Edit: Forgot to add, I have reformatted 3 times over the last 2 days and still have this problem.

A:PC Freezes Randomly

I have an old HP 6200 Pro microtower PC (i3 2100).  Because of performance problems I replaced the original memory with 2x4 GB Kingston DDR3 and added a 120 GB Samsung SSD. There is a 1TB Silicon Power external HDD connected to it. Nowadays I am detecting random freezes. The computer stops responding (no mouse, no keyboard), I have to restart it with the physical power button. After the restart, it usually takes 2-3 minutes to reach the "HP" logo of the boot screen (a lot longer than usual).I cannot connect the phenomenon to a given software or time. It usually happens when I am using Chrome, but I use it in 90% of my computer time, so it can be a simple coincidence. It happens when scrolling a webpage or playing a flash game, sometimes when I try to wake up the PC from sleep.Software that are (usually) running:- Avast Home Avir- Dropbox- Chrome What I did:- changed the SSD (before the Samsung, it happened with an OCZ SSD drive too)- did a memory test (two individual memtest programs determined the memory sticks be OK)- did a clean Windows 10 installStill, it freezes at random times.  Any tips are welcome.

A:PC freezes randomly

Hi, A "clean install" of Win 10 means you ran the OS sans any other software and driver installations. No way to know if it's a driver or hardware problem unless you run the OS clean. My advice is to install the factory operating system. Bad drivers or failing/incompatible components are possible causes. Seeing the same symptoms using the factory OS will direct you to a hardware cause. The factory install should be stable. Otherwise start swapping currently installed components with known good replacement components if you want to continue using Win 10 and you ran it clean. Jay

Hi. So I have this problem for a long time and it really bothers me.

PC spec:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.6 GHz
2 GB of RAM
32-bit Operating System
Display Adapter: nVidia GeForge 8400 GS

So here's the thing: my computer freezes randomly when using it, and by freezing I mean I can't do anything (press a key, move mouse) and screen just remains frozen. Nothing happens and I have to restart it. I have all the drivers installed. I have this problem for some time (more than 6 months) so I can't really relate it to a certain program that I installed.

If it helps in any way, I noticed that the freeze occurs often when I browse the internet (using Firefox).

Any clues on this?

Hmmm... Try another browser for a while just to make sure. I had the same problem when I was playing a videogame and I'm 100% sure it was game fault. I did some search on the web and found that a lot of people with FF 15 are experiencing the same issue. FF 15.0.1 repeatedly freezes my entire computer; can't forcequit; need power button to shut down/restart; completely random, not an addon issue. | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support
Check if you have the latest version, 18.

Run this anti-malware program -> Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer
And some anti virus that you have installed

Also, you may want to do a Repair Install

Altrough this sounds more like a overheating problem. If I overclock my CPU too much, it also freezes after a while. Check your CPU/Motherboard temperatures before doing a Repair Install

Possible memory issues, especially since you mentioned it happened even when going to perform a clean install.



Download Memtest86+ here:



Which should I download?

You can either download the pre-compiled ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).

How Memtest works:

Memtest86 writes a series of test patterns to most memory addresses, reads back the data written, and compares it for errors.

The default pass does 9 different tests, varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth test, bit fade, is selectable from the menu. It writes all memory with zeroes, then sleeps for 90 minutes before checking to see if bits have changed (perhaps because of refresh problems). This is repeated with all ones for a total time of 3 hours per pass.

Many chipsets can report RAM speeds and timings via SPD (Serial Presence Detect) or EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), and some even support changing the expected memory speed. If the expected memory speed is overclocked, Memtest86 can test that memory performance is error-free with these faster settin... Read more

hi everyone,

first of all mery christmas and a happy newyear to you all.

well here it comes, my problem is the continuation of 2010.

i have a pc wich i configured myself. now all these parts are brand new.
the problem lays here, since i installed everything on and in my pc it freezes up at random times up to 10-15 times a day.
you can do the math of rebooting the pc yourself if you know that this problem occurs from octobre.

im at the end of my latin here, ill number up the solutions i already tried.
1) i formatted the pc more then 20 times already (no lies), the pc refuses to install XP, so i use Windows 7 home premium 64 bit instead.

2) the pc went back to the shop, they tried everything they could by replacing and testing every single part of hardware. the recognize that there is a problem but they couldnt solve it. they stress tested and benchmarked the pc and all but are powerless. its a problem for the books they said.

i sincerly hope that you guys could provide me with a solution, im really fed up with this built and it costed me allot of money and i couldnt enjoy it once.
it comming so close that i want to smash it up and throw it out of the window.

my built is:
- motherboard: Intel dx58s0
- processor: Intel I7 950
- graphicscard: Nvidia Geforce GTS250 2gb
- memory: 2 x 2GB ddr3
- hdd: 1TB hdd
- power: 1000W powersupply
- 5 fans for the heat.

sincerly sturmer

I recently built my own computer that I had been saving up for. I put it together, installed the OS, everything was fine. Then it started freezing during games, or when I'm just sitting listening to music. The mouse becomes unresponsive, all sounds completely stop, and I can't use the keyboard at all. I've been monitoring the temperature of the CPU, GPU, etc. during gameplay and it never reaches above 40 degrees Celsius, so it couldn't be that. It's really getting on my nerves, especially when I'm Skyping with friends and suddenly I have to hard reset the computer. Here's my PC specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus B150M-A D3 Micro ATX LGA1151

PSU: CORSAIR CX series CX750M 750W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified

I was thinking it might be the motherboard? But I really have no clue.

I've got a problem with my PC freezing - it just freezes randomly every 40-60mins or so for about 3-4 minutes and then unfreezes again. Sound stops, can't move my mouse. Diode on the case is suggesting that hard drive also stops working.
As I have 3 hdds, I thought it's the drive issue as the system was running on the 5 or 6 years old drive. I reainstalled my system to the relatively fresh drive (about 2 y.o) with cleaning all the drives by the way, but nothing has changed.

What can be the issue? Memory? CPU? Motherboard? Or a power supply?
