Computer freezing (Been doing it for a long time...)

Q: Computer freezing (Been doing it for a long time...)

Hello,

I am running windows XP although i do not think that this is relevant because of the times at which my computer freezes.

It has been freezing for a few years (2/3 years.. not constant though) the first time it was freezing i used a electric pump to blow all the dust out of all the machine and it successfully worked so that it didnt freeze anymore.. although now its freezing again (and has been for a few months)..

I will be getting rid of the dust again tomorrow and i am hoping that this works although im not certain that this is the problem as I cleaned out the dust about 5 or 6 months ago...

The only spare parts i have got is a Hard Drive, does anyone think that replacing the hard drive will fix the problem?

---i cant test all this stuff until tomorrow so i am asking here so that i know whyat i need to test tomoz.

-thanks for support

Preferred Solution: Computer freezing (Been doing it for a long time...)

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.)

A: Computer freezing (Been doing it for a long time...)

Why would you replace the hard drive, is it defective? Are you getting a blue screen crash, is the computer just locking up?

I have two issues that need to be addressed and I think that they are connected in some way. The first problem is that my computer has begun freezing for long periods of time when I load things. It most recently happened when I tried to load a new page on DeviantArt, but it has happened when doing things as simple as opening a new tab in google chrome or trying to alt+tab to skype. The freeze either lasts a few minutes or much longer. When it lasts longer then 5 or so minutes I decide to force shutdown my computer.
The second issue that I am encountering is that task managers claims I am using 100% of my disk space sometimes when I have very few things open. Usually the culprit is System or Antimalware Executable, two services I can't turn off without shutting down my computer or making it unstable, but sometimes it says I am using 100% of my disk space when the app/service using the most disk space is using a measly 0.1 gb/s or lower. I have tried multiple solutions to this problem, including turning off Windows 8 autoupdates and allocating more memory to certain things, and disabling Super fetch and Windows search.

These are the specs on my Asus laptop:
Something I haven't mentioned is that I dual-boot Ubuntu, but I haven't used it in some time. After upgrading to Windows 8.1 the BIOS reverted back to its default so I just kind of forgot about it, but I never reallocated the space that I had initially allocated to Ubunutu.

The freezing issue started a while back, and... Read more

pages are slow to load and then they freeze or hang. Internet provider says that they are not showing any issues at their end at that I am getting the fastest connection possible with them, so it must be a problem with my computer. I am relatively new to computers, so I will need steps listed as to where to access and trouble shoot for this problem. Thank you for any helpful suggestions!

Hi Gringo,

I have been having problems with the files freezing or slow to close when opened for extended periods of time. Have recently upgraded my Ram from 1gb to 5gb if that has any impact. The Germ software was causing problems with my computer so we have omitted that file. I am copy pasting bothe DDS and the DDS Attach file as there is no attachment section on this post.

Hello, I?m using my yoga 720 13 for about a year and since I remember I have some problems with it.my bios time is about 16.5-20 seconds (the time the bios does post before logo of Lenovo is showing up). Secondly occasionally my laptop freeze, it happens mostly at startup. Other times after windows boots - I don?t have any network connection and even the windows troubleshoot says its hardware or driver failure that it cannot repair, and I must reset the laptop to make it work. Few months ago I had also lot of bluescreen that wrote something about ndis driver (also connected to the network driver). I?m not sure if all these problems are connected to each other but maybe they are. I?ve tried almost anything that I could think of. Played with settings in the bios, turn off fast boot, reinstall drivers, dism, sfc, checked the anti-virus and even uninstall it for testing it and reinstall again, bios is the latest, nothing is connected as usb drives and such, formatted and reinstall genuine windows 10, deleted all unnecessary softwares, deleted Lenovo junk and reinstall it and again deleted it, install all the ssd drivers and checked for hard disk failure, reset bios and also cmos. Probably checked other stuff also. Although when the laptop working is working ok, I still want to find the reason for the problems I?ve mentioned. Hope someone could think for a solution. Thanks for everyone who will try to bring ideas.

Hey Guys!
This started about a month ago, out of the blue, the computer would freeze up, at random times and just stay frozen for awhile, nothing I input in the keyboard would work.
Start-up times are now about 3-5 minutes long.
Also it is a HP DV6 laptop that has a malfunctioning battery, battery only has about 15 minutes of life when at 100% before it dies out completely.
This however has been an issue for 3+ months, and the problems don't change whether I just use the AC adapter to power the laptop or the battery+ac/adapter.

Thank You for your time!

I have been having this problem infrequently ever since I got my build about two years ago. I had a factory PC (Hewlett Packard of some kind) and then I got all new components and copied info on my old hard disk to this new system and fresh installed Windows 7:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 (645)
Mainboard: MSI 870-G45
RAM: 4x2 GB DDR3
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6900
HDD: Seagate 2 TB
PSU: Rocketfish 450W

The exact problem is this: during certain programs (Iíll be more specific further on) my computer freezes, loops the last millisecond of sound (if there was sound playing) and requires a hard reboot. Iíve seen this problem posted before but when I followed the advice given to those posters it did not solve my problem. Whatís causing the freezing may be different than others with a similar problem because it is very specific:

When it does freeze:
-during games, after random amounts of time (seems truly random, from 10 minutes in to hours)
-When iTunes is open (even if nothing is playing) and my perception is that this happens a little sooner than during games but still at random intervals
-If I leave the web browser open for long enough (I had to turn off the auto-sleep option to figure this one out, it takes hours before it freezes) on any site (streaming video or just ebay left on idle)

When it does NOT freeze (even after 24 hours or so):

A:Computer keeps freezing up randomly for long intervals

Make sure there aren't any other applications in the background that may be hampering performance. Usually freezing is caused by system resources being hogged and not a hardware conflict. (If there was any kind of problem with the actual hardware, you'd probably get a blue screen.) You might want to check the temps on the GPU cores as well, although if the heat on the card doesn't cause artifacts then the problem probably exists elsewhere. Do you get any error messages?

I have an HP Z800 Workstation with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

When I start the computer it seems to be ready in somewhere under a minute after the desktop comes on, meaning there are no spinning circles the mouse moves smoothly etc.
However if I try to launch one of the programs in the taskbar, Firefox, Thunderbird, it takes at least seven to ten minutes for the program to come on and be ready.

At this point if I click Start>All Programs it is completely empty with no icons or folders at all in there and will be for about the same amount of time.
The Start menu freezes open like that and all I can do is to wait.

And wait I do because it makes it much worse if I hold in the power button and turn the computer off because then I can usually not go past that black screen that comes on for a brief second before it goes on the desktop.

I have very few things that are active in msconfig so I have no idea what's going on and why the computer takes so long to start.

Any ideas?

Thanks

A:Computer takes a long time to start

Test your hard drive for errors and do a scan for bad sectors. I feel your drive might be trying to write to faulty sectors which is why you have to wait for so long.

Also use MalwareBytes Antimalware to make sure you don't have adware/spyware running.

Hello-
My computer has begun taking a very long time to start up, usually around 7-10 minutes. Running xp service pack three. Programs take a long time to open but generally run well once they have started. When I look in task manager there seems to be too many processes running. I have disabled many of the processes that were being run automatically at start up but this hasn't helped at all. I've also run spybot, adaware, and Malwarebytes' anti-malware which have all turned up nothing. Any help or advice would be appreciated. (Sorry for originally posting in the wrong forum).

Hello everybody,

The patient is a Dell Inspiron 9300 Laptop with 512MB Ram, 60GB HD 40% free, Windows Media Center Edition, SP3. When I open "my Computer" it takes almost two minutes to show drives and icons. I have run Combofix and an AVG full scan. It was slightly infected and now clean. Still does it. I've removed all non-essential software, turned off almost all autoruns, done a defrag and a drive C:\ "cleaning" I ran it through CCleaner and Advanced Windows Care. for the most part it's pretty well behaved and operational. Virtual memory is set to 1024/2048. What is that little flashlight working on so hard when I open My Computer?

Thanks,

A:"My Computer" Taking a very long time to open

Open up Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and click on the Processes tab
Click on the View menu item, then on Select columns.
Place a check mark next to I/O Reads and click OK to accept the changes.

Then stretch out the Task Manager window so you can see all the columns.
Double click on the column header (to sort by that column) and then open My Computer and see what processes spike the highest.
You can do this for the I/O Reads column, the Memory column, and the CPU column.

Also, do you have any mapped network drives that no longer exist? That is another reason for a long delay - the system is searching for network resources that no longer exist.

Hello, I have a problem with my system. When I wake up in the morning and the computer has been off all night long I will get a bluescrean after like 5min or so... After that the OS reboot and same thing again untill I shut down the system and wait 1-5min then start it. The it will work just fine untill I shut it down again and have if turned off for a long time. Next morning I got the same issue....


? Windows 7
? x64
? No, it's a home-build system
? I got the OS from my MSDNAA...
? From 3 years to 3 months (the oldest thing is HDD the rest is new.)
? Last time I installed the os was like 3 weeks ago (it has been reinstalled alot)
? 930 i7 @ 2.8Ghz
? Gainward 460 1GB GLH
? Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
? Corsair HX 750W PSU


The errors I get when I see the bluescrean is:

*** STOP: 0x0000001A (0x0000000000041790, 0xFFFFFA800078CAB0, 0x000000000000FFFF, 0x0000000000000000)


Don't know if it's diffrent all the time or if it's the same. Have only looked for it once...

Sorry for my bad english, hope it won't be a issue for any readers.


Edit: Might add that I have runned memtest on my memories and also send em back where I got them from but they diden't find anything.
Has also tried with 4 diffrent motherboards (same model) and 2 diffrent graphiccards (Not the same model).

What are the hardware specs for your dell? McAfee slows down any system a lot, so that is contributing to the problem. Do you have a lot of programs running at startup. Defragment your hard drive.

Hi, im a computer tech for a company, and one of my customers is calling saying that when he comes in in the morning and moves his mouse it takes 5-10 min before the computer wakes up. We are trying to figure out what the problem is but cannot figure it out. We've checked the power settings and whatnot but that doesnt seem to make any difference. Does anyone know what could be causing it to do this. Also the monitor is relatively new so i dont think thats the issue either. Thanks a lot

You're not giving us any computer specs. That would help.
Also, verify exactly what low power setting the system is in. 'Sleep' can mean different things.
What kind of connection is there for the internet?
Have you check the Event Viewer of related Errors such a DCOM, TCP/IP?

Good Job on the Hi Res photos. Does this happen after the computer posts? Do you hear any beep codes?
Take a look in your BIOS to see if you can turn off any extended tests also.
IF none of this helps, try unplugging various devices one by one and boot to possibly narrow down the issue.
PS that computer shipped with Vista or XP did the issue start after upgrading the OS?

Hi ! My name is Maxime, and I'm new to this forum. I made an account here because I need help, and I didn't know who could help me.

So, my computer is getting slow after a long time use (6-12 hours) and it sometimes crash, giving me a black screen, white screen, brown screen... it changes almost every time. When I'm resetting my computer, everything goes well, and my computer goes at is maximum speed (I think ). I think that it could be a virus or something like that. I've read something about decompression bomb last week, could that be possible? 3 weeks ago, I scanned my computer with the trial version of Avast, and he founds like 6 decompression bomb, that I manually deleted.

I'm using windows 7.

What should I do ? Here are the files..

EDIT : I don't think its an overheating issue, I've downloaded a program showing the temperature of hardware, and it's all around 35-40, which is in the average.

EDIT 2 : When my computer crash, I need to shut it down by myself, or it won't do anything else.

I did some time on google looking for an answer to this problem, with no definite luck my figure it that some piece of software is pausing the shutdown.

I start my computer all is fine and good. I then try to shut my computer down.
Vista shuts down in about 20 seconds. This is how my computer normally works.

But if i get on the internet and am on for more than 15 minutes or so, the pages take a long time to load. When i try to restart Firefox, an error box comes up telling me that Firefox is already running.

I check task manager and it is, when i try to end the process nothing happens. In order to fix this problem i have to restart my computer. When i attempt to shutdown the computer the desktop just sits there for almost 5 minutes before windows decides to log off and shut down.

I have run avg 8, Norton, and Spybot S&D. In hopes of finding a bug somewhere but nothing has set off the security flags.

This has been happening for almost a month, two weeks ago i did a format and reinstalled all of the programs i had, thinking that it might be a virus of some kind. This still did not help.

I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times and it has not helped.

Attached is a screen capture of my desktop. I have put icons of all the programs i use on there.

I run visa home premium, core 2 duo 2.0 ghz, 3 gigs ram, geforce 7600.
 

A:Computer takes a long time to shut down.

The Problem turned out to be caused by Norton's Firefox toolbar, Maybe a memory leak or something. Norton told me they are aware of the problem and are trying very hard to find and implement a solution.

Until that time, I have uninstalled Norton 360 2.0 and am now using Zone Alarm Security Suite. Haven't decided whether I will go back to Norton; lately it has been nothing but disappointments from them.

I have a DI-604 wired router that works great - It has turned my ADSL into an "always on" connection as opposed to having to connect each time I want to use it . But one thing I've noticed is that everytime I put my computer on stand-by for an extended period of time (say 8hrs) I can't connect after bringing it out of stand-by, thus I have to restart and then I can connect.

Is there anyway to fix this - perhaps there's a setting in the router's configuration window that could fix this?

Thanks.
 

A:Have to restart to connect after computer on stand-by for a long time

Make sure when your computer goes into power save mode it does not disable your networking card. Check all powersave options in the OS and in the bios. I have seen this happen from time to time on some types of NIC's. Usually disabling powersave altogether is a very quick band-aid. Unfortunately I don't have a "fix" for it.

Hello there, I am new to these boards.

I need some help with making my computer run more quickly. There are 2 problems I have noticed.

I have a new Thinkpad T61 which I bought only a month ago, I use XP SP3 it takes almost 4 minutes in total from hitting the power button to being able to use the internet. A screen before a login screen says "Windows is Starting up..." and that stays there normally for at least a minute, that is the brunt of the problem.

Also I noticed when I am using FireFox alot, it freezes up and it says Page Not Responding on top but then after about 10 seconds usually its fine. Any ideas on either of these?

Here are the programs installed on my computer:

AIM
Mozilla
MS Office 2007
Adobe Reader
eBay Turbo Lister
iTunes
Quicktime Player
WMP

and then other things that came with the comp that look important (Access Connections, PC Doctor, etc) I deleted the excess advertised programs that come with computers (not on my comp but example free AOL and such).

Thanks for your help!

Hi

If you are comfortable working in the registry you can try looking at this page.

But first make sure you create a restore point and export the registry keys before changing them just in case you have to change them back.

Is it just the browsing that takes long? or does working on the network also take longer than the other workstations?

Hope this works.

Edit: Tried safe mode. It was stuck on loading files for a long time also.


1.Check start-up programs,they can increase the boot-up time. You might have to disable some of them...

2.Check your HDD, it defines the boot-up time.If the hard drive has any problem then that's it.
Damaged HDD often gets system load much slower.

3.Scan your PC for malwares. Infected system can be the answer to your question

Let me know if this helps

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is the right section in the forums.

I have windows seven RC1(32 bit) and I get a BSOD when my computer works hard for longer periods of time. I do not have this problem with my vista partition. For example if I do a 30 mins skype call or play a game for 20 mins I get the BSOD. However I can surf the internet and listen to podcast for hours and have no problems.

Heres the error message

Problem signature:

Hi,
I'm using Windows 8 Pro N with 32-bit. I found some problem SOMETIME whenever I tried to open My Computer, it takes a very long time to show up my drives and removable disks.
Here's the screenshot of it. The Green Bars is moving damn slow, For sometime only. Besides, I also encountered problem when the folder is not responding, where can I end the task? Just like in Windows 7, I can simply end the task using task manager.

Any guides to my problem? thanks!

A:Takes very long time to show up drives in My Computer

Hello HTHVampire, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Double check to see if you may have your power plan settings set to turn off idle hard drives. If you do, then that would explain the delay why you wait on them to spin back up.

Hope this helps,

About 3 week ago my computer started to run slow when webpages load(I typically leave my computer on 24/7) so I rebooted and it started to run just fine. Then about 24-36 hours later I noticed it running slow again when loading webpages. By running slow I mean, the mouse would freeze up as I would try to move it while the page was loading, once the page loads the mouse moves around freely. I do not notice the mouse freeze while loading large computer programs such as full version of Photoshop or Power Director. It only seams to happen when loading webpages. This holds true no matter if I use Chrome, Firefox or Edge. So it has consistently started running slow after being on for 24 to 48 hours. It seems to get worse the longer it is on, but always runs fine after a reboot. It also seems that the webpages load faster af... Read more

basically when I startup or reboot the computer it takes around 5-10 minutes just to get to the windows loading screen. It seems like everything shows up really slow starting with the emchines splash screen, loading Realtek boot agent, boot from ACPI CDRom, followed by a bunch of white loading progress bars, which just hangs there for ages. once it gets to the windows loading screen it resumes normal speed and everything seems fine from there.

No onscreen messages...no times when it just will not boot?

Hey All-

I just reinstalled Windows on my laptop. It has a miniPCI wireless card and Intel 10/100
Ethernet card.

When it starts up it takes quite a while to connect to either my wireless network or wired network; probably somewhere around two - three minutes after I log on it finally connects.

The workstation/server/wzc, etc. services are started already even when the laptop's not connected yet. The icons don't show up for a while in the tray, but the second they do, it connects fine.

What could be causing this? It's driving me nuts!

Thanks,

Joe
 

A:Solved: Computer takes long time to connect to LAN

My guess (but only a guess) is that something else is hogging the machine and networking is getting little or no resources. Have you tried SAFE MODE with NETWORKING?

Hi,

I have windows XP SP2 on my pc. It is a 2.8E Pentium 4 with 2gb of memory. SATA drive and 2 IDE DVD-ROM/RW. My problem is, when i click on My Computer the window comes up, but in the middle is a little flash light that goes back and forth for about 1 to 2 mins before it finds the drives that i have. What could be causing this. I have defraged all the drives, turned indexing off, then back on, neither had any effect, i have removed all network drives and printers. Can you please help, it is very annoying and time consuming.

Thanks

P.S. If i type in the address bar c:\, it will go to that drive without the flashlight thing. And then if i go back the flashlight is still there.
Also, even if i let the flashlight thing finish and then got to c:\ and then click bacl to my computer, it will come up with that flashlight again.
 

A:My Computer takes a long time to find drives

Welcome to TSG! I hope I can assist you with this problem.

What operating system is this? XP Home or Pro?

Run the following troubleshooting tests:

Test A

Click on Start
Click on Control Panel
Click on System
Click on Hardware
Click on Device Manager

Question: Is the Device Manager window populated or empty?
Test B

Right-click on any file or folder on your desktop
Hover over "Send To"

Question: Does your computer seem to "freeze" for about 30 seconds and then the Send To list appears?
Test C

Click on Start
Click on Control Panel
Click on Network Connections

Question: Is the Network Connections area empty or populated?
Test D

Click on Start
Click on Control Panel
Click on Add/Remove Programs

Question: Do you see any suspicious entries, specifically ContextPlus?
Test E

Question: Do you still have full USB port functionality with printers, cameras, gamepads, etc.? If you plug in/ unplug a device like a USB memory key if you have one, do you get a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in your system tray?

Please run these tests and let me know the results...
