Preferred Solution: Computer freezing on log off

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

A:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

Hello,

I'm going to post two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.

I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.

I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen and I have no higher computer knowledge.

I'm attaching the zip file required.

Thanks,

A:Random Computer Freezing - Need to hard restart after freezing No BSOD

Wow, this sounds like the same thing that happened to a friend of mine when his hard drive was failing. Replaced the drive and the freezes went away. Even the buzzing noise.

Also you may need to look at what drivers you may have just install/updated.

Hoping you don't have any failing hardware "Motherboard, video card, etc". Those are expensive

A:Computer Freezing; Slowing Down. But mostly freezing. I have my HiJackThis! Log File.

I don't see anything in your log or your description of your problem to come to the conclusion that your problem is malware related. When there is malware present there will always be other internet related symptoms like popups or a browser hijack etc...

I will advise you to uninstall Microsoft Anti-Spyware as the version you have is very old and no longer supported. It in now called Windows Defender.

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Go through this now and see if it helps:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

You will be prompted to ... Read more

Hello, I'm having an issue with my computer.

My computer has started to restart/freeze up on me. The thing is, it has graphical issues once it freezes/tries to reboot. I get all these lines through the screen, graphical glitches when trying to go through the BIOS, etc. The computer isn't too slow, it isn't acting strange, the only thing that is wrong is the obvious freezing/restarting with graphical lines and glitches once it freezes.

My video card has been going out for a long time(I share a computer with a few people and they seem to think the video card is ok, but I have always seen small glitches in graphics here and there), so I am thinking maybe this might be a problem, given the graphical glitches, the horizontal lines going through the screen once it freezes.

When it hits the BIOS, it sometimes shows these same lines with the screen going mostly black.

System specs are:

CPU - Core 2 Duo, speed I don't remember.

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

I got this computer a few years back and I am not one to keep updated with specs or talk about them often, so I have forgotten the speed of the CPU and I do not know if I am missing information for you guys.

Solutions I have tried:

Overheating - I used air to filter out all dust/dirt that might be there to harm the computer, I have plenty of fans in there, etc.

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

If you're getting graphical 'glitches' while in bios, that's usually a good sign that your graphics card is having issues - however, I have seen this happen with faulty ram. I'd recommend reseating the cards (ensure your computer is off and unplugged whilst doing so) and see if that helps

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

Welcme,
The problem isn't the hard drive, it's that you are still infected.
I'm going to ask a moderator to move this thread into Am I Infected so that you can work with one of the expert volunteers there to get your system cleaned correctly.

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.

My laptop is a Gateway 450 ROG and it has had this problem for the last week. It will run for roughly 40 minutes, and then (even when small programs are running) it will freeze up. My mouse wont move, no command will respond and i am forced to hold the power button and shut it off.
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. This problem has gone on since i bought this computer from my brother but the pictures havent until this last week .

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.

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.

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.

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.

A:Computer Freezing

There could be several things wrong but start with the simple things, pull the side cover off, if there is a buildup of dust use a can of compressed air to clean out the heatsink that sits on top of the cpu.

be carefull, don't turn the can of air on its side as this can cause liquid to come out, also do not use a vacum, this can cause static that is harmful to computer parts.

There are two buttons on top of my custom built computer tower, one is the power button, and the other is a long slender (1 1/4" long and 1/8" wide) button which I honestly don't understand what it is for. I do know you can push this button and it will reboot, once it reboots all functions go back to working normally. Does anyone have an idea of what may cause this and how to remedy the problem?

Hello everyone,
I built a PC about a year ago and I've been having freezing issues. It mainly happens when I'm gaming which is why I think it may be a heating issue but I'm not too sure. When it does, freeze, everything locks up, even the mouse. At this point I have to restart by resetting the power. The strange thing is, Its not consistent which just adds to my headache of trying to pinpoint the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Below is the basic setup)

MSI P6N Diamond nForce 680i Socket 775 Motherboard
BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC 512MB PCIe w/Dual Link DV
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.66Ghz 12MB 1333Mhz CPU
Kingston 1024MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz
 

A:Freezing computer

And it could be a video card driver issue. Try the following...

1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

I have tested the RAMs using windows memory tool, and no errors showed. I have tested the HDD using seatools (the HDD is a Toshiba HDD) and there were 3 bad Sectors.

The computer works normally in Safe Mode.

I have Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 Installed on the Laptop and its working normally.

A:My computer keeps freezing.. what can i do?

hi matt_capanna and welcome to TSF !

Could be hardware or software, we can't really say while we have no error message. Post your system specs so that we can help you better (see the link in my sig).

Run the event viewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Check in the different sections (system, application, security) whether there are errors or warnings corresponding to the times of the freezes.

Go to the device manager : start => run => devmgmt.msc. Check "show hidden devices" in the view menu and check that there are no warning signs in your devices list.

Have you tried restarting in safe mode to see if the problem also happens there ? Press the F8 key during startup (F5 on Asus motherboards) and choose safe mode there.

Here are some general hardware tests that you can do on your own not having to wait for us to answer, but do tell us about any error message you should see.

- Test your memory :

Download and burn memtest86+ bootable iso. You'll need to use a burning software that's able to burn CD's from .iso files (most softwares can do that but the one integrated in Windows XP can't).

Boot the computer on the CD : search for a message telling you which key to press to enter setup or refer to this site to know how to enter the bios at startup and set the boot priority to CD-rom first.

Leave memtest run at least 3 full passes on your memory or leave it running overnight. It's recommended that you double-check those results wi... Read more

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.

Hi, I recently joined this community, so if I do something wrong, don't be afraid to correct me.

Anyway, it's been two weeks now and my computer constantly freezes at random times. I don't think it has anything to do with overheating issues, because it still freezes with only ONE application. I've looked at event logs and can't seem to find anything that is of relevance to overheating. I can post up my event logs if anyone is curious. I'm not sure if has anything to do with hardware. I updated my graphics drivers, but it still keeps freezing. I'm stuck in a rut.

I would greatly appreciate any information that could help me with this issue.

Here are my specs:

I've been having an issue where my computer freezes for about 30 seconds to a minute. During the freeze I am able to move the mouse, but everything else becomes unresponsive. This has happened at the windows user log in screen, browsing the internet using chrome and on the desktop before opening any applications. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit. Any help is much appreciated.

Hello i am having trouble with my computer, it freezes on the acasion of either, starting up,ingame and randomly. i have had this computer for about 4-5years and havent had this problem, i started about 2 months ago, then i went away and when i came back it was still doing it, my computer is: (ill just say what it says in the system and what i know) Intel pentium 4 2.80ghz 1 gig of DDR ram and radeon 9550 (AGP).
i did originally have Norton anti viral protection, but we changed to mcafee and some other programs we have are spybot search and destroy,spyware blaster.
if there are any other questions of anything else that may help you,help me sort out my problem just ask

oh and forgot to add,when it freezes it freezes with what was last displayed on the screen (ie. desktop) or the screen just goes black, and i have to turn it off at the wall, and sometimes it wont turn the monitor on, so i took off my LCD and put on the old CRT one.

ill post a printscreen of my processes if that helps




Thanks :)

Hi! I have a HP p6820 as my main computer and the problem is that for some reason it freezes whatever I was currently doing. It can freezes when I'm watching a youtube video, reading a Wikipedia article, playing a video game or just not using it at all... And it also freezes whenever it wants. It can freeze 10 minutes after having started it, or 8 hours after... I haven't done any modification to it and the only things that are connected on it are: headphones, speakers, a computer monitor, a USB mouse, a USB keyboard and a USB floppy disk drive. I cleaned all the dust inside the computer but not inside the power supply.

Well, i got a problem here and this happens really often. The thing here is, my computer keeps freezing really often. My mouse freezes up and when i'm gaming or something, it freezes up for a couple of seconds and then back to normal again. But the thing is, that this keeps happening really often. Does anyone knows what problem is it ? Motherboard ? Memory ?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Check your system for overheating. Clean out any dust bunnies, especially from the fans and heatsinks.

If none of that helps, check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

The free Everest programme, will give you info on your temperatures and your psu voltages etc.
