Computer freezes at random times, Youtube issues, Computer heating up!!

Q: Computer freezes at random times, Youtube issues, Computer heating up!!

Hey all,

I was unable to get GMER to run the full scan without an error popping up halfway saying that the .exe has stopped working. I tried it twice and lost patience so I will try again later and try to make it work. For now I'm just putting this post up there to at least get something by the end of today hopefully, so I just want to point out first that my GMER log is not included. Sorry about it! If the GMER log is absolutely necessary along with Hijack and DDS logs for you guys to diagnose what is wrong with my computer, do let me know. Also, if you guys could, any advice on how to get GMER working would be appreciated. I was unclear through the instructions if I should uncheck the IAT/EAT box and check the C: drive box (the GMER tool did not warn me about rootkit activity, but I went ahead and unchecked IAT/EAT and checked C: drive anyway, assuming that the drive that is most important to scan would be C: drive).

I'm running Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro Bootcamp partition and its only recently been experiencing some problems, the most notable being that the computer freezes randomly. I could be playing a game or browsing the web, and the screen freezes, no black or blue screen though, everything just freezes, and I can't move my cursor or get to task manager to end processes. Another problem I encountered is that while browsing Youtube in particular, when I click on a video, for the first 10 to 20 seconds or so, the video itself is either mostly black or a completely black screen even though the loading bar of the Youtube video is clearly loading. It's kind of hard to explain, you can just interpret it as the video is not showing. The audio is also mute for the same amount of time and then after a certain amount of time both the audio and video show. Refreshing the page sometimes works, but not always. It's quite frustrating and I'm hoping it's linked to the same problem as the computer freezing up. Lastly, a more general problem I've noticed is that my Macbook is heating up noticeably more than normal, and a couple times I noticed the computer got laggier and laggier as it progressed towards completely freezing. I'm not sure how much this description can help you guys solve such a problem, but these are the main problems I've encountered. Thanks in advance for any help!

Looks like I need to provide TSG SysInfo as well, here it is:

Preferred Solution: Computer freezes at random times, Youtube issues, Computer heating up!!

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.)

Hi guys,

This seems like a great site, so big thanks to all you people volunteering here.

I've had my PC gaming stationary computer for a couple of years. Last year I upgraded to an SSD harddrive, new graphics card and Windows 7 (from Vista)

It worked decent (some minor issues here and there but whatever) but now when I came back after not been using it for 3 months, it freezes at random moments. And it's up towards the point where I give up shutting it down and reeboting. I can be in the middle of a download, or browsing something on a webpage, or even just leaving it be for 2 minutes and then all of the sudden it freezes.

I have updated all the drivers, windows updates and tried the Advanced System Care which takes care of some problems (as it states) but does not help with anything to do with the freezing. I have runned some anti-virus systems on it as well. Nothing to be found.

Any suggestings of what I can do? I feel like I don't have the knowledge coming up with new things to try.

I forgot to add I run with a Gigabyte motherboard. I think I saw someone having problems with that somewhere. Could that be it? Why wouldn't the problem have occured 4 years ago?

I would appreciate any ideas, advice, suggestions or even just a greeting

Thank you so much,


A:Computer freezes at random times

Straight to the point

1, clear temprorry files using any good software . try CCleaner.

2, check for dust accumilated in the cabinet. most cases over heating of cpu may cause problems.

3, clean you ram and ram slots for any dust. and also check for heatsink on cpu.


check for any viruses

check which application is using the resources.

It will be helpfull if you can mention the complete sepc of your pc

I've been experiencing issues of my computer shutting down, restarting itself, or freezing at random times. Also, it is slow. At my Event Log under System, it says the following:

Wasn't sure where to post this. I ordered my PC from CyberPower PC almost 2 years ago, and from day one its been randomly freezing, blue screen, shutting off. There doesn't seem to be a real trigger for it. Sometimes it will freeze when I leave it alone. It will freeze when i play BF3/4 on any graphics settings, after about 10 minutes of game play. It seems to be a bit random but it will always eventually freeze when I game. I know that if I leave the computer alone after it has frozen it will shut it self off and wont turn on unless i flip the switch on the power block to off and then press the power button, and then flip the switch to on and press the power button to start it up. I've contacted CyberPower PC tech support and he had me download programs to test the CPU and the GPU. Furmark and Intel Burn Test. I ran the both programs for the recommended time and it didn't cause a shut down.
When it first started happening several people thought it was overheating, which didn't make sense because i have a water cooling system. I went and bought A LOT of fans and set it all up so there was fans on every vent available. And I'm sure its correctly set up too. That didn't seem to have that much of an effect.
Recently it started acting up even more, it will freeze on me minutes after turning the computer on. No one seems to be able to figure out what the problem is.
Currently I am running memtest86. It has been running for 5 hours with only 1 pass and 0 errors. Not sure if it's su... Read more

Whether it be watching a youtube video or trying to view a document on Google Docs, my browser stops responding. I try to go to my other programs and they stopped responding as well. Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't do anything either, so I'm forced to manually shut down the system. This has happened a couple of times today now. What should I do?

We do need the actual 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.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

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:

* 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.

My computer freezes at completely random times even when i am not currently using it. Even when the monitors have gone to sleep it will sometimes freeze and they will not wake back up. I can not do anything at all when it freezes except hold the power button until it turns off. I can not find anything that could be triggering this and am wondering if somebody knows a way to find out why it is doing this.

A:Computer freezes at completely random times.

It could be a number of things however I would suggest looking at the hardware first and see what we find

Run Memtest to check if there is anything wrong with any of the ram sticks

download either the ISO and burn to dvd
download the USB and install to usb
or the exe and install on the machine

Download a hard drive utility from the Hard drive manufacturer and check your disks

I recently changed the cabinet of my computer and since then I've been getting freezes and BSODS, when it freezes it just gets stuck at whatever I'm doing and makes a buzzing noise through the speakers. I haven't had time to read the error codes when I get the BSODS, it reboots to fast.

The freezes/BSODS appear to happen more frequently when gaming, but it also occurs when I'm just browsing.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and have tried reinstalling it but it didn't help. My computer is quite old, around 2007 I guess.

Hello. I bought a new computer and it freezes at random times. It happens 1-5 times / day and it's really annonying. It does not reboot, there is no BSOD, it just freezes.

Before reinstalling windows, it used to show some BSOD. I got just 1 BSOD after reinstalling windows. I attached some logs.

The 2 USB ports from the front of my case don't work as they are supposed to. I have to move stuff to make them work. I use the USB ports from the back of my pc case for that reason.

After I ran the command -shutdown -r -t(time in seconds) a few days ago my computer has been shutting off (or hibernating) by itself if left idle for too long. I'm not sure how to remedy this... Did my command "stick," as it were? Under the assumption that it might have stuck, I entered in a ridiculous amount of seconds... but it still shuts down when I leave it for too long.

I like to leave my computer open and running sometimes during the day when I'm downloading large files. I've been able to do this in the past without a problem. I have absolutely no overheating problems. I have a cooling board and everything - I know the problem isn't that.

Can anybody help me with this problem?

Hi all,For several months my PC has been frustratingly slow. However, I have dealt with it. Now however, when I click on "start" my PC will completely freeze, not allowing me to access anything. When closing programs, the desktop slowly scrolls back onto the screen instead of instantly appearing. I wish there was more details to share but there is none to my knowledge. I have recently ran spybot S&D and ran a virus scan but it has not helped. I have followed the instructions on the preparation post and here is the data in the DDS log.

I have been having a problem with my dell toaster oven freezing up when a site comes up that has Youtube videos on it. I only use Firefox and have the latest version. I am not infected with anything because I just went through this on another thread and had to reformat the hard drive to get rid of it. I use XP SP3 and have all the updates for it. I did not have the problems until I did the reformat. I read on a forum that it might be the codecs were either incomplete or missing so I downloaded the K-Lite codec pack but I still have the same problems. You don't even have to click on one for it to happen. Pages that have links to Youtube even cause the same problem like Facebook. I cannot even ctrl/alt/del to get the box come up and shut it down. I wind up turning off the power and restarting. My life will be incomplete without viewing some of the idiots that post to Youtube. On a side note I also cannot play some games that I used to be able to. I tried to install Mechwarrior and Heavy Gear and after installation I would try to start them up but either nothing would happen or it would go to the splash screen and then stall. Any help would be appreciated.

This is probably a problem with Flash. Normally I would suggest that you update to the latest version in case you don't have it, but I'm not sure the latest versions fixed this issue. Try and then post back, if the problem persists, you might want to downgrade Flash to a (much) earlier version.

I have a Dell Dimension 4500, 1.7 GH CPU, 680 mb RAM, 100 GB hard drives. My computer freezes up for 1-2 minutes frequently -- usually after I am gone for a short time and when I return to my project, and when I start up. I can usually release the freeze with <ctrl> <alt> <delete> (which does not always come on) and disabling "cidaemon" which then promptly comes back.

I have deleted all the programs that I think I can get by without. Some programs I cannot delete: Microsoft Works 2002, and Real Planes Flight Simulator.

My computer freezes at least twice a day. Sometimes when i leave it on for quite some time, it freezes. At other times it just freezes while i'm doing some work. Just now the computer restarted by itself when i was running some programs (matlab, excel, bitcomet, zone alarm). I have to restart my computer manually everytime. I'm using Windows XP SP2, Zone Alarm Pro, BitComet, Prevx, McAfee. I've already checked my power option (hibernation disabled, never turn off monitor or hard disks and never standby). I still do not know what's wrong with it. I run Register Mechanic, Advanced System Optimiser and Ad-aware on a daily basis. Can someone please help! Thanks!!

Today I had to manually restart my computer 5-6 times and it's been like that every day. I was infected with some virus before and I got tired of trying to get rid of it(my antivirus wouldn' remove it). I decided to format the harddrive and do a clean install Vista Ultimate. That went well but now the computer freezes too many times in a day. It freezes randomly when running  IE or just when I'm trying to install something. It's a fresh install and I need to reinstall some programs I had on it before but the freezing problem just wouldn't let me. Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong?
Thank you

I have an Asus UL30Vt running Windows 7 64-bit. My computer wouldn't wake up from the sleep mode so I did a hard restart and then it got stuck at the Windows loading screen. I restarted and did Startup Repair and I was able to get in but then I noticed a lag problem. Youtube videos show a blank screen and my computer will lag/freeze for a minute or two before going back to normal. This has also happened on Flickr when I try to look at pictures. And occasionally while I'm surfing the internet. The weird thing is I can watch Youtube videos that are embedded on another site just fine. The problem happens when I try to watch them on Youtube directly. It happens on Chrome, Firefox and IE. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash, updated my video card drivers, did a whole bunch of virus/malware scans and ran some registry cleaners but the problem still exists. I'm assuming something went wrong during the Startup repair after the hard restart...

A:Computer lags/freezes on Youtube, Flickr, and others

I've also noticed the same lag problem when I try to save a file in OpenOffice.

Also, whenever it freezes while surfing the internet, it is either Flash that has stopped working or the Windows Media Player for Firefox Plugin.

I do my surfing on Chrome.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to hear me out with this issue! My computer has started freezing whenever I open up Youtube on my browser, and the only way to fix it is to shut it down. It's strange, it freezes, I can't click, or use the keyboard, and when I try the computer begins to beep once for every stroke I attempt to make. I can watch videos on other video sharing sites I've tried just fine without an issue, it's just Youtube for some strange reason.

Any help would be very appreciated, this is a very annoying problem!

I should note I've already tried these fix's, but to no avail:
-Cleaning out my computer, fans, cards, vents, everything.
-Unplugging and replugging everything
-Updating my browser

Well, here's the story. I purchased this computer last December from CyberPowerPC. It came with Windows Vista but I didn't order that. So I wiped that off and installed Windows XP Pro on it and updated it to SP2.
Now I don't know if it's XP or what but my computer has been freezing every day about 5-10 times a day. What happens is that the screen would all of a sudden show random colorful lines causing me to hard boot the computer. The thing that annoys me is that any work I have been working on is lost. I haven't really done anything about it because the bootup time was about 30-40 seconds. But now I'm fed up.

I emailed the company, but haven't got a response yet (sent Saturday)

So far I have tried :
cleaning inside the computer
lowering Hardware Acceleration
Lowering Sound Acceleration in DXDIAG

I really don't know what else to do.

Here are the specs.
AMD Athlon 64 x2 Duel Core Processor 4600+
geForce 8400 GS
1 Gig Ram
500W PSU
Windows XP Pro SP2

Any help is welcomed as well as comments/suggestions or anything else. If you need any more information or anything, please ask. Thank you for reading and hope to hear some helpful responses soon!


A:Computer Randomly Freezes about 5-10 times every day.

If you purchased the computer with Vista then they probably will not do anything because of taking Vista off the computer might have voided the warranty.

When you installed windows xp did you install the special drivers for the motherboard and windows xp like the chipset drivers, buss, network, audio, video and the others?

my computer completely locks up when watching youtube videos, ive done the process of elimination of the following.

1. i bought a new RAM stick made by corsair 2 days ago and it still does it so its not the ram cos ive used 3 different sticks

2. its not my hard drive otherwise id have other errors not just a frozen pc on youtube

3. its not my gpu cos ive clean uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them and i play wow everyday for like 10 hours and never had any issues

4. its not my CPU cos a cpu error wouldnt hang or freeze on a specific thing

5. i ve checked device manager no yellow triangles with ! in them

i dnt know whats happening i think its an issue with flash player if its not and it lkeeps happening il just reinstall windows

A:computer randomly freezes when watching youtube videos

Some hardware tests to run to be sure it's all OK.

Graphics card test:
Video Card Stress Test with Furmark
Hard drive(s)test(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.
7 Free Hard Drive Testing Software Tools
RAM (memory) test:
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Personally I think YouTube is the problem. I also have issues there a times with nothing consistent with anything. Sometimes a video is fine, then the next one jitters or has bad audio. Then everything works fine.
You could try reinstalling Flash.

Hello! This computer was built about a month ago, and only recently in the past two weeks, the crashes started to happen. There are no BSODs, and I was unable to obtain a dump file from the crashes, the computer simply freezes up and everything becomes unresponsive (computer screen freezes, keyboard and mouse unresponsive, sound frequency stuck in that one tone). At times, the computer does not start up at all (stuck in a boot loop), it POSTs normally with 1 beep, but restarts and gets stuck until I hard reset the computer. I ran memtest86 on the PC to check for any memory issues with the RAM, the PC passed 7 times with no errors. I've changed the settings for saving crash dump files in the advanced system settings, but the PC still does not write any dump files into "Windows\Minidump".

These are the specs of the PC:OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit
Motherboard: ASUS B150M-C D4 (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/B150M-C/)
Power Supply: Cooler Master V650 Semi Modular 80+ GOLD
GPU: ZOTAC GTX 1060 Mini
CPU: I5-6600 (not unlocked)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 2400MHz 8GB (2x4GB)

A:Computer freezes at times and cannot update Windows

Hi Kimaran,
Look here : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Troubleshoot-problems-with-installing-updates
However you may have more serious problems of hardware failure.Most generally the continuous beeping is indicative of a BIOS code being issued from the motherboard.
You can find more information here: http://www.pctechbytes.com/hardware/computer-beeps-continuously/
There are also other possibilities; CPU, RAM and Motherboard: http://www.memtest86.com/
You can always post back for further assistance.

I have been having issues with random BSOD's at random times i don't think it's heat related im almost sure its driver related with some ad in card i have. I was able to play Bioshock Infinite on ultra all the way through without one to give your a sense of stability when its not doing it. it seems to be always when using youtube or the pc is just doing easy to run things, im wondering if it's slysoft's clone drive, my acpi drivers, im out of ideas at this point. I do have a xonar stx and im using UNI drivers v1.7(BRAINBIT) with it and possibly it's causing the issues. I recently got the new CPU, MOBO and SSD but i Re-installed Windows after getting those installed. I am not using the AI suite with my motherboard as it caused crazy high DPC latency spikes for me just so you know, and my HD audio is through the GTX 570 for 7.1 when needed.

Any help would be appreciated I have attached my system dump files as stated in the tutorial thread. If you need any more info please ask for it.

I just built my new computer, and about 15 minutes after starting everything up and getting windows working, it will freeze and make a non stop beeping noise.

like it's flatlining or something.

Also Sometimes when I turn on my computer it will say "Insert Bootable disk or restart...So I have to go into the bios and do "Load Optimal Settings" in order for it to start up vista.

So what might be causing it to freeze and why is my harddrive not being seen sometimes?

Hi! I have a computer that operates normally some of the time but hangs repeatedly at other times. If can be during the boot, after the Windows 98 splash screen, or even when the machine is sitting idling on the Windows desktop.
It is a Pentium II 400 with 128 MB of RAM. I am suspecting a motherboard problem. This is a clone machine with imported motherboard. I have tried BIOS defaults, running with minimal drivers, etc. It will even hang in Safe Mode. I reformatted the drive and reinstalled Win98. It even hung during the first reinstall.

I would appreciate any hints you can give me.

Thanks, Bill

At random times, my computer has been shutting off, then restarting. Sometimes, it restarts continously other times it will actually load Windows 7 for a little bit. Then, it repeats the process. I have tested the RAM with memtest86 and windows memory diagnostic. I replaced the old RAM with new RAM. I tested both sets of memory. Memtest86 and windows memory diagnostic indicated no errors. I ran system file checker and checkdisk on the harddrive. Indicated there was something that Windows recovery couldn't fix. I swapped out my video card with a known good card. Problem still reoccured. I unnplugged everything but the CPU, PSU and the video card. Problem still repeated itself. I unplugged the video card and disconnected the case power switch to the motherboard and shorted the power pins to get the computer up and running. It would run for a few minutes then shut off. POST screen didn't indicate any problems. I do not have a case speaker. So, I don't know what sounds are being made during bootup. This computer I've had for almost four years now. This is the first time I've had any major problems with it. The HD was replaced about a year ago. I think I may have a short somewhere, but everything looks fine on the board.

It boots back up fine and has no other issues. All drivers and BIOS are latest and nothing is flagged in the hardware manager.

Any ideas?

I forgot to mention that the Intel Pentium 4 630 didn't come with any thermal paste, so I didn't apply that below the stock heatsink.

Is that an issue?

Would the ASUS Probe report a false heat score and the CPU actually be considerably hotter?

at random times when I try to type in any (login/search engine etc) box/ my computer brings up windows re: run/computer/settings etc - seemingly related to the first letter I type- very annoying and I have to restart my computer to fix the problem - any suggestions?
