Q: ETS2 game frequently freezes DIEmWIN seems to be responsible

ETS2 game frequently freezes DIEmWIN seems to be responsible for not being able to open task manager or shutting the computer down,I have to tell the shutdown blue screen to shut it anyway. Many gamers are saying tha the DIEmWIN app is freezing their various games too.

Preferred Solution: ETS2 game frequently freezes DIEmWIN seems to be responsible

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.)


My System: Windows XP Pro SP2, ECS motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB RAM, Nvidia video card.

Description of Problem:
For the past few months, explorer.exe has been crashing frequently. It just crashes while I am browsing directories and/or click on files, I'll get the usual series of Windows dialog boxes to report the error, and then explorer.exe will automatically restart. It doesn't happen everytime, but once the problem does kick in, it seems to happen repeatedly.

I've also been experiencing the system freezing up on me. I need to manually reboot my system in this case.

The point of this post is to eliminate malware as the cause of my explorer.exe and/or system freezing problems. Attached is my hijackthis log. Please let me know if anything suspicious is found. Thanks!

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. Any help would be appreciated - I am pulling my beard out.DDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by 1st at 14:16:26.79 on Wed 02/03/2010Internet Explorer: 6.0.2900.5512Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.2039.1003 [GMT -5:00]AV: ZoneAlarm Security Suite Antivirus *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {5D467B10-818C-4CAB-9FF7-6893B5B8F3CF}FW: ZoneAlarm Security Suite Firewall *enabled* {829BDA32-94B3-44F4-8446-F8FCFF809F8B}============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcssvchost.exesvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exeC:\Program Files\CheckPoint\ZAForceField\IswSvc.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exesvchost.exeC:\XAMPP\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exeC:\WINDOWS\eHome&#...

This is a strange and extremely irritating problem I've come across just yesterday. I've spent hours and hours trying to figure out the issue with all of my ability and knowledge, but I still can't figure out what's going on. Basically, pretty much everything will stop working (including the desktop and taskbar and all applications and windows I have up) and freeze (not respond) for around 5 minutes or so and then will unfreeze. This happens way too often and is very annoying. I'd provide specs but right now I'm on my laptop trying to figure things out. It runs on Windows 7 64-bit. It's getting to the point where I can't stand using the PC anymore. Here's what I've tried so far:

- Registry cleanup and fixed issues with CCleaner
- System Restore
- Updating video drivers (except it didn't need updating)
- The repair sequence during startup.
- Scanning for Malware and Viruses, both my programs not coming up with anything after a full scan.
- Defragmentation

Thanks for your guys' help!

I would request help on repeated freezing of my PC.
It has persisted for a number of weeks but getting worse.
I first thought it may be the mouse input and have changed that twice but still freezing.

I have run malwarebytes and it gave me some 'pup progs' to remove, which I did.

Freezing occurs after 5 - 10 mins use and will clear when I close such as firefox or some other prog or shut down and restart.

Frequently I get error notification about " a non responsive script" many with large number of characters in the fault message.

A simpler error message is:
A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Hey Guys,

My computer is acting all shaky as of late. Whenever I open a new internet browser, my computer freezes for 20 seconds. My home page has a tendency of changing and my computer takes 6 minutes to load, which feels like forever in this instant gratification world. Also something must have downloaded at some point without my knowledge called “desktop.ini”. Its on my desktop and opens whenever my computer restarts.

I do usually leave my computer on for days at a time and that I feel is the reason for all the issues. I just started using Bitdefender which seems to be blocking lots of malware, but all their pop ups to keep me aware of infected items are constantly taking over my screen because of how many items it finds, causing more of a headache.

Below are the HJT, DDS and Malwarebytes logs

One Week Bump

For about a month my pc has been freezing at odd times. There seems to be no related program or time when it freezes. There are no error messages generated. I may be doing a long backup and the computer will freeze during the backup. I may be running two separate programs at the same time and my computer freezes. If I run a progam that takes a long time to complete, the pc will freeze. Each time I have to reboot and restart the program or backup. I have windows xp professional with sp3 installed. I have a lot of programs on my computer as well. My pc has about 4GB of memory. I am using a USB harddrive backup system along with Acronis True Image but I have also tried Bounceback backup software as well. The same thing happens. I have run registry cleaners several times but the problem continues. I would appreciate any suggestions to solve this problem. Regards, mnedil

I couldn't find the sub-forum for B(lack) SOD, so I'm posting here. Please let me know if this is not acceptable.

I have a problem. After playing Fallout 4 for a while, I started playing Skyrim again. After about a week, Skyrim started crashing and rebooting the computer. I put up with that for a few days, then fired up Fallout 4. It started crashing as well. I started Euro Truck Simulator 2 - same thing.

It doesn't crash if I'm doing anything else like browsing, watching a movie, etc. . I've stress-tested memory overnight, tested the PSU and GPU (using OCCT), haunted innumberable forums, pulled my hair out, and moaned to my significant other excessively.

I tried to create a minidump, following the instructions on your forum for the blue screen of death, but my system so far has refused to do so. I've run the dmlog program, but it doesn't zip the files at the end, telling me I don't have the necessary permissions.I can do that manually, however.Does it create a minidump if the system just crashes to a black screen and then reboots?

I did look at the event viewer, but all it tells me is that the system
rebooted without cleanly shutting down, etc.

Please don't move this to malware or security, it's about something affecting games!!!

What's DIEmWIN.exe? Does anyone actually know what this program is meant to do and why it malfunctions the same way for everyone (or is it actually a virus after all?)

If you Google DIEmWIN or (+.exe) you get a lot of hits from all around the world in many languages. Everyone has the same game destroying symptoms and noone has a conclusive answer.

It's unlikely to be a virus. No antivirus or antispyware programs find it. Running a search on 'all files and folders' on my system yields 0 results for a file of that name, but others (not sure what they search with) get 206 or 207 hits!

The symptoms always involve... games (made by various developers) hang unexpectly, often closing to desktop. Explorer freezes and then tells you it encountered an unexpected error and also closes. When rebooting the system to try to get it working again a program called "DIEmWIN.exe" fails to 'end application' and you have to click 'end program now' button. At this point, people become aware of the cause of the problem for the first time usually and start trying to find out what it is and fix it.

The closest thing to an answer available on the internet is "this has something to do with your video card, try updating your drivers" or "this is a problem to do with ATI cards".

My computer gets stuck up or freezes occasionally for no reason. The only option will be to hit the reset button. When I do this, the system would not boot up. It boots the BIOS and then goes to a black screen. I tried reseating my RAM. Then the computer would work fine. But again after 2 days it gets stuck up and I have to repeat the same process.
I have reinstalled Windows XP a couple of times. It would work for 2 days, then the same problem arises. Also my computer's boot up time has gone upto 5 mins, previously it would take only 2 mins. Due to frequent use of the reset button, I am having about 8kb of bad sectors in my hard drive. I dont know if the problem is with my RAM or Motherboard.
Can any members plz advise me on how i should troubleshoot this problem?

A:Computer freezes frequently

I would run a program like memtest86+ to ensure that your ram is not the issue.


I would then run something like Prime95 or other CPU burn in tests to check your CPU.

There are programs like PCCheck that are out there that do an "okay" job at testing motherboard components but I'm not sure exactly how much I trust them and I've been using PCCheck for years.

Try to rule out the easy stuff first

Good Luck

Hey, I've been running windows 7 on my machine for quite some time and it worked perfectly until a few months ago. I've rarely been able to start up windows without rebooting my computer 2-3 times, and when it finally boots it usually hangs for a long period of time (~15 minutes).
I've tried starting up in safe mode, but it hangs at "CLASSPNP.sys".
I've also reinstalled windows 7 about 4 times already, clearing the drive and reformatting entirely.
Is there any way to solve this without buying a new hard drive?

A:Win7 x32 freezes frequently

Some ideas to get you started. Over heating is the most crucial.
Go to search type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers
Download and run malwarebytes, a full scan after you update
Run antivirus scan
Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
If overclocking, restore to original
Test hard drive at company website.

Check back and I will get you some links that you can use for the above

This seems like a lot, but go slow, ask questiions and you will be up and running.

I have a problem with my computer freezing. I am using Windows XP SP3. The freezing occurs kind of randomly, sometimes after being on for a few days, sometimes after windows starts, but when it occurs, I have to push the power button on my computer to shut everything down. There is no error message, everything just stops. Neither the mouse nor keyboard responds.

I think it is related to programs that display graphics. It seems to freeze very often, or much more quickly if I am playing a video game or scrolling through a website quickly with a lot of text. If I don't play a video game, then the computer may or may not just freeze randomly. Sometimes after a freeze, the computer freezes once or twice during startup before I can get a startup that lets me do things again. I have noticed the last couple of times I started up after freezing, the screen goes black just before I can see the desktop.

I have tried scanning for viruses with the AVG Free program. I have tried scanning for spyware with Lavasoft's Ad-Aware. I have tried scanning my computer for errors with a program called RegCleaner.

I just updated my Win 7 Pro from IE 10 to IE 11. Now I have frequent problems every browsing session where the IE 11 browser freezes up after I have opened and closed tabs a few times. It just stops responding, and sometimes if I wait a few minutes it will suddenly unfreeze but then freeze again after a minute or two of browsing using tabs.

When it locks up, I cannot even close it except with Task Manager, and sometimes that even stops working (CtlAltDel does nothing) and I have to use the Start menu to Resart the PC. I never had these problems with IE 10.

I recall installing IE 11 a long while back when IE 11 was first released, had the same problem, and uninstalled it via a sys restore and reverted to IE 10, ran fine. Am I going to have to do this again? Help, please...

Hey guys,

I've been having this problem for a while now, and I am not sure what's causing it. My computer freezes for a minute or so, and then resumes working as if nothing happened. During the freeze there's no HD activity, and just before it lets go they start searching like crazy. The only thing that stays alive during this is the mouse, and I believe that the computer remembers its every manipulation (i.e. maximizing/minimizing a program). Sometimes it happens during gameplay (ARGGGGGH), sometimes when i browse the www (Mozilla). I believe I have all the updates from MS. Today I was trying to run a program, the computer froze, and then I got an error message: "ntvdm.exe is not responding". This was the first time I've seen it, and don't know if the freeze-ups are related to this.

Follow these steps:
a. Press “windows key + W” on your keyboard.
b. Type “Troubleshooting” without quotes in the search box and hit enter.
c. Select “View all” from the left panel.
d. Select “Search and Indexing” and follow the on-screen instructions.

Method 2:

Let’s rebuild the index.

a. Open Indexing Options by pressing Windows key + X, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type indexing options, and then click Indexing Options.
b. Click Advanced.
c. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
d. In the Advanced Options dialog box, click the Index Settings tab, and then click Rebuild. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

My PC started having freezes that required a hard restart since I installed a new piece of 2GB ddr2 ram. These lockups are very frequent (every 10 minutes in a game) and very frustrating. I suspect it has something to do with the memory settings in the bios because prior to the new RAM, I managed to get a stable system by adjusting the RAM timings manually and increasing the voltage slightly. Now, since its a new piece of RAM I dunno how to prevent these freezes...

Any help is appreciated...!

My computer has frequently been restarting while I am using it for no apparent reason. It also freezes when a program is left on overnight, even if it is just a browser.

A:PC frequently restarts & freezes...

Hello! Let's cleanup your pc and see if that helps any.

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. Also if you have any programs that may prevent system changes (like Spybot's TeaTimer program, Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, and others), make sure you disable them before doing any of the fixes (or accept the changes for the fix we give you when asked by the programs).

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

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).

I see that you have ewdio installed.
Please update Ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
Then click on Start Update.

I posted this on the XP forum and it was usggested that I repost here:Hello - new member here.
I have a Del XPS 410 with Windows XP. Had a bad virus attack on 12/22--cleaned it up with Malwarebytes. It was one of those fake-alert viruses. I have Trend Micro, Malwarebytes, and CounterSpy installed. This particular hit attacked all three programs and would not let them run. I keep a copy of Malwarebytes under a different name just in case, so I deleted the corrupted copy and reinstalled the renamed copy and caught the bugs. All seemed fine.

The next day, the machine started freezing. It will freeze on any program on my user side(I am the Admin), at random times. I can't get through a scan with any virus program started from my section, as it freezes. Sometimes the freezes is accompanied by a loud sound like a stuck keyboard key. It will never freeze on my husband's section, but he can't get to the internet using any program. He can get his email and download banking info. My daughter rarely uses her side as she is a college girl with a laptop. It froze once when I got on IE there, but otherwise operated normally. I ran Malwarebytes on her user name and caught more bugs. Further scans with the above programs do not catch anything.

I tried booting in safe mode (three times) but it blue screens. It will boot in normal mode.

I ran Hijack this and have the file saved. I ran a copy of avast Virus Cleaner Tool right now that a neighbor gave me on a disk--no virus found... Read more

This is a first time post but long time fan of reading this site.  I have a Dell Studio XPS which freezes up several times daily and can only be shut down "hard" by pushing the power button.  It also takes a few minutes to start up.  
Event viewer is full of errors
I visited www.computerhope.com and followed all instructions but found no problems regarding freezups
A computer repair shop said it was the Power Supply and replaced it which seemed to help for two weeks
Problem re-occurred; they found nothing wrong, and said try another electrical outlet but that did nothing
Here is the Speccy log:  
Thank you for any assistance that can be given.

A:Vista PC Freezes Frequently

Did you post your question on ComputerHope? If so, I don't recall seeing it there nor can I find your username as registered there.
The problem you describe can be caused by several things - malware, failing hd, bad ram, etc. Let's try some troubleshooting steps:
1) Please run full system scans with BOTH AVG (which I believe is your AV) and with MalwareBytes.
2) download memtest (http://memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.
Hard Drive Diagnostics:
Make sure you select the tool which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), to make the CD bootable.
For Toshiba drives, see here: http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=ServicesSupport/FujitsuDrivesUSandCanada/SoftwareUtilities#diagnostic
4) You have a lot of startup processes. Pleae boot to safe mode and run the system for a day. Does the system freeze in safe mode? If not, we'll try a selective startup if none of the above steps found any problems.

Hello everybody -

I'm sorry to re-post the topic of an expired thread that was obviously so useful about 8 months ago, but I am having the same problem as all the folks have mentioned on this thread http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/687568-vista-freezes-very-frequently.html about Vista freezing over and over again on an eMachines T5230 (yeah, I know it's cheap - it's my parents' machine). It's just so frustrating. Like others in the thread, I too was experiencing quite a few minute-long freezes that still "remembered" all the mouse-clicks - but the freezes were terribly annoying. So, as suggested by numerous folks - especially clueless eMachines tech support, I installed an extra 1G of RAM and the freezing only got worse. The system now runs very fast, and then freezes for 2-3 minutes at a time. One person at the end of the thread changed out the video card and put in an ATI PCI express video card and says everything works now. I don't know what the other people did. My main question is to ask if changing out the video card indeed sounds like a reasonable solution for most/all of these systems having the same problem, or does this sound like maybe it just worked in his specific case? Also, have you all heard anything new along these lines since his post in April?

Thanks for the awesome service you provide here, and at least I feel like I can share my pain with others. I will never hesitate again to return a PC to the store if ... Read more

i wouldnt blame my video card unless i had a specific reason to.
Open your task manager and keep it minimized and when it freezes see if the little graph is pegged out.
Also with vista always check your ram first
download and burn an iso of memtest boot it and run your ram for a good 30 minutes if it shows an error then there is the problem.

Alright, so let me explain this the best way I can.
This has happened on Windows 7 and Windows 8, and I recently went back to Windows 8, and what do you know? The same issue regardless....

Usually when I am playing a game (And I don't even have to be playing a game) such of Spacebase, Dayz, Far cry, Second Life, Gary's Mod (Anything really) windows explorer will freeze, I can move my mouse and such, but you are not able to click anything, or close anything. Screen flicks back and comes back to normal again, usually on Windows 7 it would tell me it recovered from a graphics driver crash, but Windows 8 doesn't do that, it just does what it did on Windows 7, but doesn't tell me it recovered, and this happens SEVERAL TIMES, it never stops...Or sometimes the game will stop responding, but if you're browsing the web, you can open tabs, but you cannot close, or browse anything in that tab until the game responds again, and the final thing, least on Windows 7, has not happened on Windows 8 yet, instead of those issues, it will just blue screen on me and come right back. I believe it's driver related, but I cannot fix it, I have tried and tried, and I have just about gave up. Maybe someone here can guide me. Also I have tried the current, and beta graphics drivers, doing full wipes before each one, and with no avail...

Not sure why, but for the past few weeks, I haven't been able to use my computer for more than a couple hours before it just freezes up; I wasn't even aware this problem still existed...
I've looked around in other forums and done everything I've seen suggested, including a virus scan, malware scan, defragmenting the hard drive, cleaning up registry errors and deleting temorary files.

Here are my system specs:

ASUS M3N78-VM Mobo

AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor (2.8 Ghz, quad core)
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 video card
2 500g hard drives

450W power supply

I've had it for a few months, this just started happening a couple weeks ago.
Any help as to what might be going on, or how I might find out whats going on?

A:Computer freezes very frequently

I suggest installing a fresh copy of Windows if that is possible. You said you've tried everything else that you posted, and that's really what I would've told you to do. Sense it's a fairly new computer, hardware shouldn't be the issue. Try installing a fresh copy of Win 7.

So here's my problem:

My computer:
Toshiba Satellite M35X-S329
80GB Hard Drive
Windows XP

About a week ago, my laptop started freezing up a few minutes after I turned it on. Couldn't do Control-Alt-Delete, just had to press down power button for 10 seconds. I managed to get it to stay on long enough to copy my important files--it never locked up while I was copying files onto a CD, but almost always locked up immediately after I ejected the CD. Sometimes it would restart on its own rather than freezing up. Twice I saw a blue screen flash with some text on it, but it was too quick for me to see what error messages it had. I noticed also that it started saying that it had found new hardware on my computer and tried to install it. The new hardware that it said it found was: VIA OHCI IEEE 1394 Host Controller.

I searched some forums for possible causes, and saw that someone had a similar problem and that their computer worked when the CD/DVD drive was in use--I've found that works for me too. It works totally fine as long as I have a DVD in the drive playing or on pause.

Just to try something, I scanned for viruses, defragmented my hard drive and ran check disk. No viruses, and check disk didn't reveal anything either. I also checked to see how much of my hard drive was free--70%.

Last night, it seemed to be the worst yet. It locked up, I turned it off, and couldn't get it back on. When I hit the power button, it would turn blue as... Read more

Okay, so I've had my XP for...two years? The major programs I have are iTunes, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Works. I don't know my RAM space, but if I check it, I will most likely freeze. Whenever I'm on the internet, it's fast for like..ten minutes, but then it freezes and I'm unable to do anything.
Oh, and when I first turn on my computer, it takes literally 10 minutes for my computer to be completely loaded. Sometimes it's more than 10. I've defragmented my files (and the lines are all..colored and looks really bad) many times, I'm doing the disc cleanup right now, and I'm removing my programs. I've deleted like ALL of my documents and stuff. I don't know what else to do! My computer runs like it's twenty years old! Please, any suggestions? I might just restart it, but I don't even know how to do that.

I bought an Inspiron 3050 back in July of 2015, which came with an Intel J2900 CPU, 2GB of RAM and Windows 8.1.  I also purchased an 8GB Kingston HyperX memory stick at the time, which I installed when the system arrived. 
From week 1, the system would intermittently freeze up about once a week.  No blue screen , no error, and no entries into the OS log.  This would happen in the middle of using it, or even during overnight hours when no applications were open or running.  I'd wake up to find the system frozen.
I reseated the internal components (memory and cables) and ran the diagnostics which are available during POST.  Diags said everything was fine.
A couple of months after receiving the system, I kept getting hit with the request to upgrade to Win 10, so I did; hoping it would fix the freezing.  But it didn't.
Fast forward to last week:  The system started to freeze up at least once a day.  Still no error, no blue screen, and no entries into the OS logs.  The system is only used for web browsing, email, etc ... so having the once a week freeze issue wasn't too big of a pain, but once or more a day is.  So I decided it might be the non-OEM RAM, and took it out and put the OEM 2GB stick back in.
Well, it's still freezing up, even with the OEM RAM.  Again, no error screen, no BSOD, no OS log entries, etc ... It doesn't feel like it's overheating either.  I cannot reproduce the freeze ... Read more

A:Inspiron 3050 Freezes Frequently

For starters:
1. Reboot and immediately press F2 to open BIOS setup. Look for a "USB Wake" (or similar) option and make sure it's Enabled. - You may or may not have this option in BIOS. Don't make any other changes in BIOS but save the change to USB Wake before exiting setup.
If you don't have a USB Wake option in BIOS setup, or it doesn't fix the problem, do all of these things:
2. Open Device Manager and expand list under USB. Double-click a root hub and click its Power Management tab. Make sure box "Allow PC to turn off..." is NOT checked. Repeat for all USB root hubs.
3. In Device Manager, expand list under Human Interface Devices (HID) and uncheck that same box for any HID entry that has a Power Management tab.
4. Go to Windows Power options screen. Select the  current Power Plan and click link to edit the plan. On next screen, click link for Advanced Options.  Under USB in list on left, Disable USB Selective Suspend. And under Sleep, Disable Hybrid Sleep.
Reboot when done.  See if that helps...

I have a problem with my computer freezing. I am using Windows XP SP3. The freezing occurs kind of randomly, sometimes after being on for a few days, sometimes after windows starts, but when it occurs, I have to push the power button on my computer to shut everything down. There is no error message, everything just stops. Neither the mouse nor keyboard responds.

I think it is related to programs that display graphics. It seems to freeze very often, or much more quickly if I am playing a video game or scrolling through a website quickly with a lot of text. If I don't play a video game, then the computer may or may not just freeze randomly. Sometimes after a freeze, the computer freezes once or twice during startup before I can get a startup that lets me do things again. I have noticed the last couple of times I started up after freezing, the screen goes black just before I can see the desktop.

I have tried scanning for viruses with the AVG Free program. I have tried scanning for spyware with Lavasoft's Ad-Aware. I have tried scanning my computer for errors with a program called RegCleaner. I have tried Defragmentation. I have tried turning off every other process in Task Manager except essential system processes. I have run chkdsk, Microsoft Memory Diagnostic to check for errors, but none can be found. I have tried reseting the BIOS and removing and replacing the MOBO battery.

Hi Amuraj,

My name is Harish and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.

The system freezing issue happens due to two reasons. 1. If the Harddrive is going bad 2. If the operating software is corrupt. For isolating the issue can run a diagnostic test by holding the Fn key and starting the system. If the test passes the Operating system is corrupt, if the test fails harddrive has to be replaced

Please let us know the progress
