Q: computer freezing

hi everyone
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.
thanks for the help

Preferred Solution: computer freezing

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...
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.

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.


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

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

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:


Defrag your HD:


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

so I got a computer that keeps freezing up on me. sometimes it runs for hours before hanging, and sometimes it hangs every 5-10 minutes.

I ran memtest and it seemed to freeze up during memtest. the little blinking icon was normal, but the test wasnt running and the commands didnt work.

does this mean that my memory sticks are bad?

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.

A:computer infected , cleaned, bsod, freezing, now computer wants boot disk

The problem isn't the hard drive, it's that you are still infected.

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.

first off, here are my specsAMD Athlon 64 X2 5200M2N-e Asus motherboard2 gigs (1gig x2) Corsair dual channel ramNvidia Geforce 7900 GS 256mb PCI-EWhen I first built my computer and loaded windows, it worked super fast. Now, its slower then my older computer, which I thought was impossible. I mean...This is pathetic. 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. So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times. I reinstalled. Same thing. Oblivion goes for about 30 minutes then crashes to the desktop. I then hit the window to maximize again, and it freezes. This has happened everytime as well. I also did older games, same thing, but done differently. Battlefield was the only one that froze the entire computer to where i had to manually shut it off.Then today I randomly check my processes, and theres 2 runn... Read more

A:I Need Help...slow Computer, Freezing Games, On A Fast Computer...(possible Trojan)

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.

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.

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.

If there is a program that i need to download to help fix this problem, i trust you guys seeing as you know more than i do.

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.

Hello I am in dire need of answers as my computer constantly freezes.  I've spoken with Hp support several times within the last week and they have not given me a solution to solve my problem.My computer which I bought of February of this year has had several problems within the last 7 months.  The freezing started about 2 weeks ago right before I left for a week long vacation.  When I called support they informed me my issue sounded like a software issue and I would have to pay for their services to remove whatever was causing the issue.I have scanned my computer several times and thus no virus or problems.  I suppose I could have a virus and Webroot isn't detecting it.  My computer doesn't have a set program or software that it freezes upon its all random.  I could be on google chrome for 15 minutes or orgin for 5.  When I called yesterday they had me shut off my computer, unplug everything and hold the power button down for 30 seconds.  I was about to use my computer for 2 hours after that with no problems whatsoever.  However when I got back on today within 10 minutes it was frozen so I repeated the same steps but now I have a mouse issue where my mouse doesn't want to pair with the computer.  But my computer is functioning fine and no freezing as of yet. So I would like to know if I should invest in the money to have them find and fix the software issue or demand they take my desktop and fix it properly as I sti...

But if I do it right after the comp freezes, it usually freezes again right when I get into windows, but if I wait a while it runs longer. Also sometimes I get this error on boot up: "Warning! Now system is in safe mode please re-setting cpu or memory frequency in the CMOS setup" I don?t know how to do this, so I ignored it.

It?s been getting worse, every time it happens it seams to happen sooner and sooner after waiting to boot it up again.

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Your video card may be the culprit. Do you have another you can use to see if the issue is still present?

Is the system overclocked?

You may also want to test you memory. Try Windows Memory Diagnostic Test

The Windows Memory Diagnostic tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. The diagnostic includes a comprehensive set of memory tests. If you are experiencing problems while running Windows, you can use the diagnostic to determine whether the problems are caused by failing hardware, such as RAM or the memory system of your motherboard. Windows Memory Diagnostic is designed to be easy and fast. On most configurations, you can download the diagnostic, read the documentation, run the test and complete the first test pass in less than 30 minutes.

Hi Chevy and to all of you.

I have been experiencing a maddening problem of my computer constantly freezing while online. I operate Windows ME and use IE. My email is with Yahoo, but the problem is not confined just to them. In fact this is my third attempt to type this because of the problem.

Guys, I have no idea where to begin to look for the problem and probably wouldn't recognize it even if I could.

Has anyone asked about this before. I would take the time to read all the posts here but... Frozen!

Help... I'm begging you!!

Hello all,

First off, I'm not sure if this is the write place to post this.

Secondly, I'm having issues with my computer. I recently reinstalled windows XP on my computer because it was giving me a rough time with freezing and other things. Yet, after I have put a fresh version of XP on, my computer still freezes.

Could it be a file on the computer that needs to be updated? Or is it more of a hardware issue?

I need help with this.

Thanks A Lot,

Did you zero your hard disk before clean-installing Windows?

("Zero" is what is also called "low-level formatting" and prepares
the hard disk for a fresh Operating System installation.)

Should I reinstall windows ?

Please help.

When you say run that 'scan', are you referring to a disk check? If so backup your files as soon as you can! Do you have a Windows disk, or can you borrow one?

This site was recommended to me by a friend who had great success here when her computer was infected with a virus. Back in April, my computer shut down and Windows would not open. I took it to a computer repair shop. The guy told me it was infected with spy ware, but no virus was detected. He kept it for a couple of days to clean it up. When got it back, it was better, but since, it continuously freezes up and I have to manually turn it off and back on. The guy at the computer repair shop says he installed Avast anti virus program and Windows Defender spy ware protection. Short of taking my computer back there and letting him wipe out my hard drive and reinstalling, I decided to try this site for advice. Can you help? Thanks.

K, I was downloading a large file online, then my computer just froze up, I tried everything to get out of it but it just stayed frozen. So, I had no choice but to un-plug the battery and AC plug (it's a notebook). When I turned the computer back on it went immediately to the screen where you have the choice of either starting in safe-mode, start back to the last good settings, or start normally. I choose to start normally and it just froze and did nothing. I restarted the computer to try safe-mode, if froze when I tried starting in safe mode. Since I can't do anything about the computer because it keeps freezing when I try to start it what do I do? Oh, and I'm posting this on another computer at my local library just if you wondered how I'm on the internet. Please help.

My new build freezes... Mostly during gaming...

Even though after I check System Information for Windows (SIW), it says that the hard drive and cpu temps are around 20, the video card is more around 45-55 celcius... Is this something that I should be worried about?

It's an 8800GTS (640mb), and I have the fans running at full speed, but even during simple games like UT (GOTY edition [from 1999]) or Civ IV, it freezes after about 3 minutes or so of gameplay...

Is there any way to fix this? And I don't quite understand why it's freezing... There's a slot open underneath the video card, so it has room to get air from, and I'm using a Cooler Master case, so it can get sufficient airflow... Should I take out the extra PCI slot-holder things that hold the spaces before there are cards in there? I'm a bit confused since it's all running soundly otherwise...

I tried to download the TSG info but I got a notification that my current settings do not allow for this type of file to be downloaded. I will post the info if someone can tell me how to fix that. I am using a Dell laptop with windows 7. My problem is that my computer was running perfectly until about a month ago when it started freezing on me. That problem increasingly worsened to the point where it was barely functioning.
I downloaded malwareabytes and ran the extensive scan. It quarantined two files and since then it's been better but still very slow. It works ok when I first begin using it but then it starts to freeze after about fifteen minutes. I tried rebooting a few times and also tried allow it to cool off.
I though about bringing the computer to a shop but then I remembered that I came here years ago (don't remember my screen name or log in) for a similar problem and whoever helped me did such a great job. I made a donation back then. I will make another if you can fix this issue. Thanks for so much

Hey everyone, I'm having this weird problem with my Acer Aspire 5517, Windows 7, 4GB DDR2, 150GB HDD yada yada..  Anyway, it keeps freezing at seemingly random times for upwards of 5 minutes at a time.  It happens the most frequently when I view a youtube video, but it does happen often while I'm doing other things like just surfing the net or word processing even.  If I leave it for awhile it unfreezes eventually and I can continue what I was doing prior to that.  One of the most annoying parts of the problem is that it doesn't leave any traces in the event viewer, even if I'm impatient and I hold the power button and hard shutdown...  Please help?  I would at least expect to see a fatal error recovery screen from Windows haha, but nothing......
It froze twice while I was writing this up
What I've done so far:
 -HDD Scan with WDDiag, HDTune and I even tried with Seatools and they all came back perfectly normal, not even over temp warnings
 -Memtest86, left running overnight and did several passes with no errors
 -Booted into safe-mode with networking, it still froze after 10 minutes of use
 -Used Norton Ghost to clone my drive to a brand new 500GB hdd and the problem persisted even on the new HDD
 -Virus/Malware/Rootkit scans with hijackthis, farbar service scanner, mbam, SBSD, roguekiller, adwcleaner, rkill, mse and KAS Rescue disk and they all came back clean

A:My computer keeps freezing up

 You've done a lot of the right things, but I'm wondering about temperatures.  I use SpeedFan to check them, but there're others as well.  If the cores get over 50 degrees C, that could be a problem.  Based on the size of your hard drive, I'm guessing your computer is a few years old.  When's the last time you blew compressed gas through the air intake vents to blow the accumulated dust out?  If over 6 months, that's something you really need to do.  Dust builds up inside these things and consequently causes overheating.  That causes things to really slow down, can cause crashes, and worst case can damage circuits.
Good luck.

I've Googled non stop but nothing comes up about computer freezing when editing files. I've scanned for anykind of malware, viruses, or even spyware, but nothing is detected. My computer is clean. Could this be a registry issue? What could it be and how can it be fixed? Im running Windows XP Professional with Service pack 3. There have been no big time updates done lately that might have caused this (though computer is up to date) and no programs have lately been installed. This is really frustrating and I still haven't found a solution. I don't know whats wrong. Help please
