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

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:

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ok most of my games are freezing up during gameplay such as Everquest freezes up for no reason or same for Guild Wars. I think its something wrong with my computer (but no sure the problem) or it might be something wrong with the graphic card. I can telll the difference between lag of a game and the game just freezing up for no apparent reason.

If you need me to say what kind of computer i have or what graphic card i currently have, please say so.

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.

Can you guys please help me out?

Hi,

This is my first post sorry for the name just went with this spray on my desk (lazy I know but we can't all be creative). Cool, well my computer keeps freezing on me and its got to the point where I might just chuck it out the window or play frisby with the dog.

Issues:
Freezing, mainly when I use the internet.
It freezes sometimes as soon as I open the web, other times it takes ages. It also sometimes doesn't freeze for long and I can continue using the internet, or whatever other programme. I have noticed if I start trying to close programmes down when its running slow it freezes.

Possible cause?:
I recently stopped using norton security and had no protection for 3 days (a very bad idea I know). In that time I had some maleware or addware (I'm not sure of the proper term) pose as the Action Center telling me I had to use this software as my firewall (not sure of the name). Even shutting down the Action Center (which with every click led back to a page to buy said software) I would have constant messages about updating my firewall and internet protection. After turning off my computer this problem did finally go away.

Here are my system specs:

Protection:Comodo, malwarebytes, spybot S&D.
OS: Windows 7 Premium
PC: HP, G62 Notebook
Proccesor: Intel Core i3CPM M350 @2.27 2.27
RAM: 4.00GB (3.80 usable)

Well there it is hope I can get some help!

First, thanks for taking the time to help me out with this problem. Okay so i have a HP laptop with windows Vista on it. The other day it all the sudden froze. So I had to hold the power button to reset it. It booted fine and once it was done I would click on something and it would freeze again. I couldnt even ctrl+alt+delete. I have button reset it multiple times. I then went into safe mode to do a virus and spyware scan and it froze in the middle of that. I have also done a system restor and memory error scan and none of it has worked.

I hope this is enough info.

Thank you

Since yesterday, I've been having problems with my computer freezing. It only happens when I`m listening to music, and if I recall correctly, only when using Ares to play it. It plays fine for a few seconds and then the computer freezes and that broken record effect happens.
I just downloaded the new version of Ares to see if that was the problem. I`ll update if that fixes the problem.
Thanks!

A:Computer Freezing Up

I would make sure your computer has the correct hardware and drivers to meet the minimum requirements of Ares.

I also remember my Mom's old laptop had this problem when playing CDs with the "CD Player" program and using battery power. I don't know if this would be relavent at all to your situation, however.

It's basically a 1.33 ghz amd athlon processor (I know. old as hell. but remember I built this using spare parts) 1 gig of ram and a 128 geforce videocard. The machine is running xp and i'm on it right now and it runs fine.

However; and seemingly randomly; the computer complete freezes. Not lags, or slows down, it completely freezes state and you'll be forced to start. There is no recognition of this in my program or security logs.

This has given my suspicion of lack of memory, which is why I upgraded from 512 to 1 gig recently. However disapointingly the freezes still occur.

The freezes appear to only happen after expended use of IDLING. I can be playing a videogame and it won't freeze. However if I allow the computer to idle overnight i'll wake up with it frozen.

There is one minor issue I have noticed and that is the fan of the videocard has broken. I was curious if you think the broken fan may be the cause of this? (the videocard gets relatively hot to the touch. But if this were the case why would it freeze seemingly randomly & during idle. Basically; would an overheating card *Really* cause the computer to freeze randomly?)

Do you think the problem is more likely related to driver / hardware malfunction?

Any additional information prior to formatting and reinstalling all drivers would be appreciated.... Read more

A:computer keeps freezing.

From previous experiences i would recommend reinstalling the operating system as self-built systems can cause hardware issues with the operating system installed and sometimes cause the computer to frequently crash. So reinstall the operating system and if this fails to resolve the problem there is likely to be a malfunction in the hard-drive.

Hope this helps

Everything was fine till about a couple of weeks ago. A friend borrowed my compter and then I noticed it starting to run slower. I have run a virus scan, defragged and the usual but nothing has helped and now it has started freezing on me as well.

I'm working on this PC that keeps freezing.

I opened the case and blew out massive amount of dust! Also, after I fired it back up, I noticed that none of the PSU fans were runnning. At this point, windows will barely boot, and will freeze on the black screen. Can the PSU overheat this quickly and be my problem? What tells the PSU to turn on it's fans?

TIA,

Matt
 

A:Computer freezing

The PSU's fans should spin up immediately when the computer is turned on, if not, then either:

- the fans all died (would be a huge coincidence)
- your PSU is using some kind of wierd fan-speed management that apparently goes all the way down to 0 (highly unlikely)
- PSU died (replace it with another and see if it works)

A:computer keep freezing plz help

Freezing is often a heat related issue.

However there are a couple of things in the Scanlog which are unknown to me:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {30088E72-6DC4-CFDD-B423-C0BDF88B709A} - C:\DOCUME~1\kids\APPLIC~1\METAFA~1\RDRMESS.exe

^^ what is in the c:\Documents and Settings\Kids\ METAFA~1 folder?

Keep in mind the name begins with METAFA* but is longer than that.

If you can't vouch for it, "fix" the entry in hijackthis and delete the folder.

Also, can you explain this:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [bat fast view bird] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\logo proxy bat fast\heart new.exe

The "logo proxy bat fast" folder is highly suspicious. If you can't vouch for it, fix the entry in HijackThis, reboot and delete the folder.

By the way, before proceeding you should create a separate folder for HijackThis, rather than keep it directly on the desktop. It will store registry backups there.

Hello, I just created an entire computer from scratch. I Installed Windows 98 on it and whenever I would try to use it, it would freeze on me. So I installed Windows 2000 and then I had the same problem. So I reformatted the whole hard drive and I put in Windows XP and it still continues to just freeze on me. The mouse fails to respond, I can't type in the keyboard, but everything that I was doing is still on the screen and its just frozen there. So I thought it might be some hardware problem. So I got a new hard drive and I installed XP again, Same problem. Can anyone help me?

My Windows 7 64-bit computer has been freezing a lot lately.  I thought i had the problem fixed, it didn't freeze for 2 1/2 days then last night it froze 5 times.  No error messages or BSOD, it just stops responding to anything requiring me to turn it off and on manually.  Last night, when it froze last, the only programs open were Firefox and Outlook 2010.  Here is what i've tried:
 
replaced hard drive (cloned the old one using Acronis True Image)
ran memtest overnight - 3 passes - no errors
updated all drivers using driverupdate
gone into msconfig and disabled all optional startup programs
 
Event viewer - System - shows many of the same error at the same time the computer freezes each time, but an IT guy i know says that's not the cause.  At any rate, here's the error:
 
The following fatal alert was generated: 10.  The internal error state is 10
Source: Schannel
Event ID 36888
 
Anyone have any ideas?  This is very frustrating.

Hello,

My computer is all of a sudden randomly freezing. It simply hangs and sits still. No BSOD or anything. Everything on my screen just freezes without any audio or anything.
Due to that, there's no dump, so WhoCrashed is no use to analyse the dump.

I've done chkdsk but it came up with no errors.
It seemed this started happening when I was playing Archeage and it keeps happening on a pretty regular basis. It has froze once while out of the game, so I'm unsure if it's even related to the game at all.

My GPU drivers are up to date along with all my Windows updates.

Not sure what I can do to debug what the error actually is without a actual report.

Just done "sfc /scannow" and it stated it has found corrupted files and will repair them on next reboot. No idea if that'll fix anything.

A:Computer freezing

Let sfc repair the missing or corrupt files. Next I would start checking/monitoring your cpu temps...indicative of an over-heating issue. First I would blow out all the dust bunnies then clean out all case fans and GPU fans, clean the cpu cooler and fan...if this is a desktop. If a laptop just blow out all the external ports and vents you can find.

I have had an issue with my computer freezing. I reinstalled Windows yesterday. All seems to be running well. However, when I try to burn a CD the computer hangs halfway through. The software is compatible so I don't expect this to be the problem.

I don't appear to have any viruses or other issues.

Could this be a problem with my power supply? I though a dying power supply would cause a reboot, not a hang.

OK, let's see if fixing these two will reveal other entries or maybe even fix the freezing problem.

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.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

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).
