Not your normal Freezing/Lag issue on an SSD

Q: Not your normal Freezing/Lag issue on an SSD

Ok, so this isn't your everyday freezing/lag issue. I can game run programs no Problem. This issue I'm experiencing is When I go to type something, weather a Document or just in the browser bar, I can start typing, then I it won't type, but then all of a sudden the stuff I was typing, appears. It's almost as if the hard drive stopped spinning for a split second. The funny thing is I am running a Samsung Evo 1TB SSD drive and not a roundy....The roundy one, just stores my Data and Docs. My SSD has everything else, programs/Games.

I know you can't do a Chkdsk on an SSD...but wondering if anyone else has a similar issue with an SSD.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: Not your normal Freezing/Lag issue on an SSD

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 there,

I have been having problems with my desktop for the past 4-5 months, have tried so much and looked on almost
every thread relating to lag and stuttering without finding a solution.

I have had the PC for nearly 3 years, built myself.

Specs:
CPU: Intel i7 7700k ( swaped to a celeron G3930)
GPU: Geoforce 1070 (taken out for testing)
Motherboard: MSI z270 pro carbon (swaped to an ASUS prime z270-P for testing)
Power supply: EVGA Supernova 850 W Gold G2
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 3000 MHz (tried individually)
Storage: Samsung 960 EVO M.2 (boot drive) and a Seagate BarraCuda

The problem occurs every 5-10 minutes with normal use, but every 20-30 seconds while playing games. This becomes more often for both the longer the computer is turned on for.

Things I have tried software wise:
-Clean install of windows 10
-Update/reinstall drivers for every component
-Change resolution and refresh rate of the monitor
-Disable prefetch and superfetch

There are no errors in event manager leading me to assume this problem is due to hardware. I have tried unplugging my GPU
and using my CPU's onboard graphics, the problem still occurs.

Screen recording of what the freezing looks like:

This problem 100% is not related to:
CPU
GPU
Motherboard
Loose cables
RAM

A:Freezing and stuttering with normal use

You post that the problem is 100% not ram however I do not see where you tested the ram and what you used to test? Unless you use something like memtest and or prime95 [ram test] for a minimum of 1hr, then you really do not know if the problem is ram or not.




I have checked the PSU readings in the BIOS, there are no anomalous readingsClick to expand...

While this has some validity, it does not test under a load [which is where a pw supply would most likely have problems]
If you want to test a pw supply, you use the motherboard mfg's monitoring software while running prime95, OCCT, or IBT [intel burn test] If by chance your board mfg does not have monitoring software [which I know asus has] then you can use the intel extreme tuning utility. The intel utility will both monitor and do a stress test.

When I am casually using my laptop, it will freeze and if sound is playing, it will cause it to make a buzzing sound until I force shut down by holding the power button. Also, occasionally when I open it after it was in sleep, it would show me a black screen but I would be able to hear the fans working. What would I need to do to fix either of these issues?

Hey, I recived my laptop a little over a week ago, and ever since I've been using it, the applications/laptop will freeze for a period of time.  Sometimes recoveing and moveing on, other times I have no choice but to force shut down the laptop. There are times when it will freeze, and only 1 app is frozen, but the sound is running, or I can do other things while it works itself out.  When this happens, sometimes I can open task manager, othertimes, nothing happend.  Then even if I manage to open the task manager, I can NOT shut the frozen aplication down.  Either the freezing workse itself out, and then it closes down like normal/should when telling it to close this way, or the computer eventually locks up compleetly. I did remove Macafee, and after reading some, used the total removal program from their site.  However, this has not fixed my issue.  My game still froze, forcing me to restart, and after restarting my web browser still froze for about a minute while trying to get here to make this post.  What if anything can I do to find out what is causing this problem?  I have tried updating my drivers from Lenovo, this hasn't helped.  I thought about using the diagnosics tool from Lenovo, but those do not seem to usable by the IdeaPad series.













Solved!

A:Y510p periodically freezing during normal operations.

Hi Jinotad,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that the computer is not working as expected and freezing during normal operations, issue is same even after removing the McAfee Antivirus from the Y510P.
 
Performing OSRI (Operating System Re-Install) should resolve the issue, OSRI can be performed by clicking on NOVO button refer page no. 16 in the User Guide to perform OKR (One Key Recovery).
 
NOTE: Please backup the data before performing OKR as the computer will be re-installed to its factory settings.
 
Hope this helps!!!
 
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Computer Specs:

MSI K9MM-V (Motherboard)
AMD Athlon X2 64 Dual Core 6400+
Saphire x1950 pro 512 MB (AGP)
2 GB G-skill DD2 400
Creative X-fi
Western Digital 320gb SATA
Maxtor 100gb SATA (Not raided)
APEVIA 500w PSU

When the computer crashes, there are no artifacts or any video distortion. The screen simply stays on the same frame that it was on when it crashed. The sound loops for about 10 seconds and then stops. The only way to fix it is to hold down the power button until it's off.

I have run memtest86, but the ram is perfectly fine according to the tests.

I have removed the X-Fi card, but the freezing still persisted.

The video card was tested in another computer and works 100 percent.

I have reinstalled windows XP twice; still crashes.

If I am not mistaken, it is either a faulty MOBO or PSU. I have no problem with buying a new one of these.

What do you guys think?

Im new here so im sorry if this isn?t the correct place to post this.

So lately this is what?s been happening, everytime i boot in normal mode i wait for the progams and things to load up but everything seems so slow and after some minutes after i click on something to do anything the pc simply freezes, no Blue screen of death. It just freezes and i can?t control the cursor anymore,

I?ve tried waiting for like 30 minutes but it just stays there forever, only solution is to switch off the laptop on the button.

Im writing this in safe mode with networking and that?s how i have been able to use my laptop lately(in safe mode) because like i said before, it just won?t work right on normal mode.

I runned sfc/scannow and it said that no violations were detected, but for some reason i can?t open the CBS.log file to show to you, i typed findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt in the cmd but it won?t open the file, im not sure if im doing it the right way.

I would like you too tell me what information you need because im new here and im not sure, i have my system specs info in my profile if you need.

Thank?s in advance.

For about a week now, my computer has been very slow on start up in normal mode and will freeze constantly during use, the only remedy being to just leave the computer alone for a half hour before it unfreezes. I've updated and performed full scans using SUPERAntiSpyware along with Malewarebytes Anti-Malware several times (and ten minutes ago) without any dangerous files being detected.

I have windows 7 and I'm currently running in safe mode with networking, though it appears that I cannot install/uninstall programs?

Any help is much appreciated, if this is malware I would like to quickly fix it before my computer becomes unusable.

Hi guys, I was wondering if anybody could assist me with this problem on my PC, I've been trying to fix it now for nearly two months and I have no specific idea of what's causing it.

It started two months ago, and the basic description of it would be that mid task (internet browsing, opening one of my audio applications etc) it just seems to freeze up. The mouse cursor can still be moved, but the window I am currently using turns white. I can click other windows but then they will freeze too. Whilst this is happening, my HDD light on my system is constantly illuminated. I've managed to view Resource Manager whilst it happens and it looks like my HDD Activity goes through the roof at this point. Anywhere from five seconds to five minutes later, everything returns to normal, and anything I've started during the 'freeze' will open up. I've noticed I can also hear my hard drive start working a second or two before it comes back to life.

I've defragged, ran CHKDSK on my drives, ran Seagate diagnostic tools, and no errors have come up. I've ran various Malware and Virus programs, and the system is clean.

I thought it may be down to RAM (I have 4GB, 2 x 800Mhz DDR2 and 2 x 1066Mhz DDR2) as I have mixed speeds (although both clock in at 800Mhz), so took out the 1066 sticks. This didn't change anything. I played with the BIOS settings for the RAM, changing the voltage to factory specified and the latencies, but no result. I've ran Memtest and received no errors or problems.

For some reason, my computer:

AMD Athalon 64 3200
160 GB 7200 RPM Ultra DMA Hard Drive
1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM memory
GeForce FX 5500 256 MB RAM

which ran EQ2 just fine for a couple years, has started freezing up for about 5 seconds every 5-10 minutes and then it jolts back into the game as if nothing happened. I have no idea why.

The other symtom is that the sound will continue to play while the screen freezes, and then right before it jolts back into the game, the music skips really fast like a skipping CD, and then it's all normal after it jolts back.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Hi, my computer will always randomly freeze for 1-3 seconds when I do normal tasks (like using chrome and skype). The freezes cause audio and mouse to also freeze during that time.

I tried to swap CPUs, get a new mobo, use different RAM and nothing works. I've got this problem since Windows 8. But its been progressively worse. Now I also sometimes have problems POSTing and the display will turn black when I boot up to the login screen.

I used latencymon to check which drivers are causing the problem and when I disable my GPU drivers the stuttering is gone. I don't have any of these problems when using DirectX apps. My GTX 660 has the latest drivers installed.

I posted some more info into this issue with LatencyMon. It looks like it has something to do with dxgkrnl.sys and Wdf01000.sys. They both have the highest DPC and ISR counts. Not sure what to do cause i cant reinstall DirectX.

Hey Everyone,

Just wondering if you guys could help me on this weird issue that started happening recently with my new system. As from the title, when gaming (so far every game... oblivion, COD2, Fable, Rise of nations, etc) after a while, sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes half an hour, the game will freeze, the sound will loop and do a feedback sort of thing then start playing again, usually the performance is downgraded slightly. Rebooting doesn't seem to help much...

I'm not overclocking at all, nor have I been, plus I have never seen the nvidia notificiation for heat so i'm not sure its the video card (drivers 84.21). The soundblaster audio card is rather old, but using the drivers off the creative site. Haven't had problems like this before.

Any suggestions?

try safe mode, boots fine.

so i try a system restore, still nothing when i try to boot up normally.

i was thinking about doing a repair with the install cd. but i think i've lost my cd key. its not with my disk, and im not sure where it could be.

Hardware related is my battery. I has lost it ability to charge. Could this be the source of my problem?

Hello,
This is my second time posting on these forums. I had great help last time for my problem and really appreciated it. Now i'm back with another malware, i tried to fix it myself with no avail.

My current problem has to do with "System Security." I think i got it while browsing a web site from a pop-up, i thought i had avoided it, but then System Security kept popping up, scanning my computer and saying i was infected with "Lsas.Blaster.Keyloger." My desktop background was also changed to a black and red wallpaper saying something about my computer being infected and that i need to fix it.

I tried fixing the problem by scanning with ad-aware and registry booster, i used both in safety mode because every time i start the computer in normal mode it either freezes or restarts moments after it starts loading up the desktop. In safety mode i also deleted:

c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\13998594.exe

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\13998594

as well as the system security folder(s)

I checked:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
for
13998594

Hello friends,
I am hoping that someone here can help me. I have an HP notebook, 655 I believe. I am trying to fix it for a friend. She has been having a problem getting online since updating to windows 8.1. (64 bit)
I have tried the fixes here: http://www.fixedbyvonnie.com/2013/10/how-to-fix-limited...
The first command returns resetting failed. Access denied.
I went into netsh.exe and gave my user not trustedinstaller ownership. and then gave all users full control. Still same result. I have also tried the other fixes on that site.
I also updated the wi fi adapter to the newest driver from HP website.
Qualcom athereos ar9485 802.11b/g/n is the adapter.
I can provide any other information needed.
I also cannot even use a cat6 cable to get connection

A:Not quite the normal 8.1 wifi issue.

I also cannot even use a cat6 cable to get connection
 
this would lead me to believe the problem is with the internet connection/router itself,
 
try the computer at another location, with a different router/internet connection

Here is my computer specs for this discussion:
--Geforce 8800GTS GPU
--AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400 3.2ghz CPU
--Ultra 550W 120mm fan PSU
--M2N32 SLI Deluxe mobo (Wireless edition)
--Ultra brand 2gigs of ddr2 667 ram
--120mm exhaust fan at rear, 80mm intake fan at front

Fairly nice build, and it runs at temperatures around 30-35c for all parts (CPU, GPU, PSU, internal, etc). The problem is that when ever any program or online site requires any sort of GPU activity like flash games or games like CoD4 the GPU, CPU, and PSU spike from the nice 30s range to around 55-75c (75 being the psu). Now normally I would check the thermal compound, but I found it quite odd that its only whenever flash games or application games are played that it spikes to these unhealthy temps. I know the Athlon 64 x2 is not really supposed to go above 60c so this is starting to concern me. I am going to replace the 550W because the GPU box states needing 600w minimum (probably for system not just gpu) non-sli. These temperatures for games are causing some fps issues to like for example in World of Warcraft the FPS is dropping to around 30-45 at times (Sounds pretty bad for a GPU that is supposed to run it at 100+ FPS)

Hoping someone could help me out with some alternative solutions besides the ones below.

Time to start a thread for just this topic. It was already discussed to some extent in the "P70 first impressions" thread, but it does seem like this is a real problem and deserves its own discussion.
 
I can easily recreate this "pop/crack" every time the machine boots and the "spinning orbs" GUI appears as Windows starts up.  After a while, as Windows loads drivers and finally gets to loading the Realtek audio driver, I hear that "pop/crack" as the drivers kick in and the sound hardware activates and some initial impulse gets sent to the speakers.
 
It really sounds like something is being "held back, and then released" and that's what is makihng that "pop/crack" sound.  I don't know if's some capacitor discharging suddenly or some other electrical cause, or if it's a mechanical issue with the speaker diaphragm.
 
Beyond the initial Welcome screen "pop/crack", it will also occur after some idle period when there was no sound.  And then later, when some sound must be produced just before that new sound starts there is a gain a "pop/crack".  Then it will disappear and not return, until later and then the cycle repeats.  This "build up" and then "release as a pop/crack" again almost suggests an electrical cause, with some capacitor in the audio system charging up over time and then suddenly being discharged instantly to produce that pop/crack in the speakers.
 
I guess that sound could be the from the discharging of the capacitor it... Read more

I'm getting a pretty strange issue. The symptoms are as follows:
User opens a Word document as an attachment from an Outlook E-mail.
When closing the document, the user gets the error "This file is in use by another application or user (normal.dot)".
Clicking OK leads to a screen that would allow you to save Normal.dot with a different name.
Closing that out without saving nets the error "Changes have been made that affect the global template, normal.dot do you want to save the changes?"
Clicking No brings up a blank Word document, which the user can then close.

IPS panels generally provide better viewing angles (compared to other display technologies), it's highly unlikely that you will ever be using the monitor by looking down at that sharp of an angle on it.

Although, I checked the monitor's splash page on the ASUS website and they say this:

Hi all.

First post and all that, I have had a look through to see if I can find my particular issue, and I don't think I can.

I posted this in a different sub-forum, but then realised it belongs here... d'oops!

An L850. It will work fine on battery, but will not power from the charger cable. Usefully, a colleague also has another L850 (I bought two together) so I can charge my battery seperately in his machine.

If I start the machine on a charged battery, it works fine. If you then plug in the mains adaptor, the lamp will light on the front of the machine, but it's clearly not charging as the machine works until the battery is flat, and then turns off, and will not turn back on until you independently charge the battery and put it back in.

Every time the machine is powered on, it also complains that the RTC battery is flat, and you have to set the time in the BIOS. This is the CR2032 coin cell internally on the motherboard isn't it?

what I cannot understand is that the unit clearly understands that the charger is plugged in, as the LED lights to say it is charging the battery. Except it isn't, and it's not keeing the unit on either. Battery works for about 40 mins these days, after that, machine dead.

Any ideas? I'm assuming there is something wrong with the charging circuit internally, but the fact that the LED lights when it is plugged in suggests otherwise..

Thanks for any ideas.

Hello all.

On my desktop in Windows XP I'm getting Network Cable Unplugged. I have Fedora 8 installed on the same drive and when I run that I can access the internet just fine. I've taken the wire out of my desktop and put it in my laptop and it works fine there as well.

What really gets me is that I can get on the Internet in Fedora, on the same computer, which wipes out all ideas of hardware issues correct?

I don't know what this means exactly but the network activity light (the light next the network jack) is on when running Fedora and off when running XP.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

My laptop is slow to boot and will run for 5-10 minutes in normal mode before it freezes and the mouse cursor disappears. At this point it will be completely frozen and I must hold the power button. In safe mode, it seems to run fine without any issues. I have gotten the BSOD twice with this problem, but never long enough for me to actually read what it said. If it makes a difference, my battery is nearly dead and I have to leave the laptop plugged in almost always.

The following symptoms could be entirely in my head...but I figured I would just give all of the information. I think I hear a slight ticking noise on startup and it seems like the fan is working overtime.

The requested .zip file is attached.

Thank you very much for any help. I'm willing to upload any more information you need if you'll tell me how to do it, I'm not overly computer-savvy.

Thanks,

A:Satellite L850 - Mains charger / battery issues, not the normal issue...

Bit more information on this. When plugged in, the icon on the screen says "Plugged in, charging", but the battery icon animates charging only for about 10 seconds, then stops, and the battery is clearly not charging as the % drops away slowly.

I found from a google that one fix is the "remove everything, hold power for 30 seconds, reconnect". This has made no difference. I've also found advice to uninstall the battery driver software from the device manager and allow it to re-install. Done this, still no different.

I've had the hard-disc out and in a USB caddy to recover all my files, and am now doing the "factory restore" option which I think is from a restoration partition on the hard disc. This is working away, but I think is still running on battery only, so not sure if it's going to complete!

I have to fix a P4 1.70Ghz computer with XP Pro, and a 40GB HDD. I have no idea what happened to it previously. All I know is that it needs repair.

When I boot up, it goes through post, and memory check just fine. (I also notice that the screen resolution is out of wack, but I figure I can always fix that later.)

Sometime after the memory check the screen goes off and shows this red box saying something like "The input signals are nowhere to be found, monitor will shut down in # seconds." Usually it gives 7 seconds, shuts off, and then comes back on. I've restarted the computer many times - and it always happens in that sequence.

Then there's the HDD boot up. It always brings me to the "Last Known Good Configuration" screen where I must choose between Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Net, or Normal. I have gotten to the point where I've tried all of the above options, it gives me that white horizontal loading bar at the bottom, which reaches the other end - and hangs. I've left it on for hours, nothing ever comes on. The screen is perpetually black.

I've tried the bootable CD, which gets me past the load bar up to the trademark Windows XP black screen load bar. From here it takes me to a black screen, and I've sat there listening to the HDD to see if it's reading - but all I hear is silence.

I've also swapped the hard drive with a working 8GB drive, and I still get the same results. At this point I'm not quit... Read more

A few days ago, my laptop started acting strangely, like when I opened skype, the program initially would not allow calls and would freeze then eventually would freeze with any use whatsoever, followed by any others that were open, until the only option was to shut down the computer. I have suspected that skype is the culprit, but even when not using it, the same process would occur, except starting with a different program. Even before the computer froze up, I was unable to use Task Manager or System Restore. For task manager, an error box came up that said something like "security tools unable to initialize," but I can't recall the exact words and couldn't do a screengrab.

So I booted up again in Safe Mode with Networking and everything worked fine, though it isn't terribly convenient to have to use it. I ran GMER and MBAM, and the scans came back clean. ComboFix was able to eliminate some problem files when I used it, though, but when I try to boot up into Normal Mode the problem still persists, though at this point I'm reasonably sure that it isn't a virus. I've also gone through Event Logs, and I've seen some reports of memory slowing down, as well as my System Information for Windows saying that BIOS is reporting the wrong values for the memory. Also ran a scan of the system, which reported that there were corrupted files that it could not fix. I have the CBS log, but I don't have the knowledge or experience that I can make heads or tails of it, though I a... Read more

I figured it was a one time thing and forced shut down and rebooted. It again froze up about 3 minutes later and now every time I use it it freezes from within a few minutes of logging in to up to an hour. Even if I just log in and don't touch anything it will freeze at some point in time. Last night I used it for 6 hours and thought everything was fixed but when I woke up it was again frozen. It also seems to be lagging a little when opening new tabs and applications which it never did. It works fine in safe mode and stayed on for over 24 hours with no problems.

Dell Studio XPS w/ 6GB RAM. Has been running fine for 2 years.
Yesterday, started giving a BSOD of IRQ1_LEVEL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL.

No issues when running in SafeMode w/ networking, but when logging in in normal mode, about 2 minutes after doing the login, it crashes EVERY TIME.
- I've rolled back to a restore point from 1 week ago. No luck.
- I've tried to analyze the crash files myself using WinDbg, but I've not found anything interesting (though it is likely my lack of skill at using WinDbg).
- No issues in Safe Mode or Safe Mode w/ Networking

Trying to avoid a reinstall of the OS, but wanted to see if anyone could help interpret the crash files. My guess is that it is a 3rd party driver that is causing the crash, but need help identifying which one, if possible. Not sure why it would start yesterday afternoon for some unknown reason.

I've been to this forum before with a dumb question before about my pc freezing (lol), but this time I've all but rebuilt the pc with new parts and am having a freezing issue when it's under heavy load. Well, maybe not so heavy, because I have plenty of ram left to be used and my cpu can't get much better for my board. Here's the gist of it all:

It will run cpu and mem burn-in tests with no problems at all for long periods of time, so I know now that it's not those 2 things. I just got a new case and psu @450w with PLENTY of ventilation. No issues there. My cpu stays at a steady 59% (average) because it's an AthlonXP 3000 333fsb (They all run HOT). Now, I'm beginning to think that there's an issue with the vid card and/or the mobo. Here's where it get's tricky. The cpu and mobo and gfx card are new in the whole equation too. I basically rebuilt an old machine into a nearly optimal 400fsb ddr rig. My mem is 2x1gb Kingston HyperX single channel pc3200 sticks @ cl2-3-2-6 timings. I have a Radeon AIW 9800 pro gfx card. The mobo is an MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR. It has the latest Bios and drivers. My vid card is running the latest drivers and Catalyst Legacy software (not further supported). Oh, and with my new 22" LED LCD, I'm running @ 1080p.

OK, with all that out there, the freezing part. I can get away with watching video (streaming or otherwise) only for so long. DVD's never freeze my system. Other types will ra... Read more

Hi, I have been experiencing this issue for a bit now. PC would randomly freeze while I am playing a game "dota 2" or watching a video with multiple videos paused in the background. even sometimes when I am reading an e-book or a pdf. I check the temprature of all hardware and its always within 30-40c when this happen other than when playing games where it reaches 60+C. this used to happen on win 8.1 and still happens on win 10. I tried to upgrade the video drivers but when I download the intel one from hp and try to set it up it says something similar to " this product is not supported" do I need to upgrade any of my hardware? if so then what should I buy that will fit?I really appreciate taking the time to read all this and answering it. thank you.

I just got my new dell xps studio 13 laptop yesterday and it's been working perfectly until today

when i logged in everything was loading and then it froze, i thought nothing of it and turned it off. When i turned it back on it was running perfectly until i got onto the internet and i went to youtube and i was watching a video and then it froze again. I did a system restore to see if that did anything but it said it failed
I downloaded some programs yesterday but only steam, itunes and msn

it keeps freezing randomly and i don't know why, the mouse doesn't even move around. even before i posted this message it froze so i had to type it up again.

anyone know any solutions to fix this?

Okay. I know this topic has been used so many times in this forum. I've never had this issue until now.

Recently I had to replace my PSU and that fixed the problem. Now I also did a full reinstall after backing up all my personal info. Now since I did this and reinstalled all my utilities and games, my computer is now having random freezes.
The computer will freeze and any inputs after that, it will catch up after it unfreezes. So this makes it really bad for online gaming.

Currently running:
550w Antec PSU
Asus A8N-SLI Premium
1GB x2 Corsair XMS
300GB Seagate
200GB Seagate
EVGA 7600 GT Nvidia x2
Soundblaster Live! 24bit
Not OCing anything at this time.
Some suggestions on where to begin would be nice. Thanks for the help.

Check your Ram with Windows Memory Diagnostic http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

then update your video card drivers then check your CPU in your bios check if the cpu temp is over 50

Around a week ago my PC froze up (cursor and everything) while I was just browsing the web, this was the first time I've experienced something like this so I just restarted and ignored it. It happened again a few times following this and started to happen more and more frequently.

Yesterday I turned the PC on after it being off for nearly 24 hours previously and it froze as soon as Windows had finished loading. I restarted and it froze while on the blue XP "Welcome" screen. After a few further attempts I noticed that it had froze on the BIOS startup screen. After that I got past the windows loading screen but the "Welcome" screen was black with a few specs of colour showing through. I switched it off at the plug and came back an hour later and it loaded fine, I was on windows for a few hours before it happened again.

Today I have been having the same problems and I just cannot get on to Windows. Infact it rarely gets past the BIOS startup screen now. Half the time it wont even complete POST, and once when it did it gave me a continous beep.

I have tried unplugging the hard drive and the DVD drive which made no difference. I tried switching the RAM for a different stick but ... Read more
