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.

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

I have a HP Pavillion dv9417ca Notebook PC with AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile Technology Tl-56, 2.0G Ram, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2.

The computer when running slowly makes a ton of noise starting up and running and tends to use more processing. The computer sometimes makes weird noises that aren't normal windows sounds and come from error's. Like intense beeping noises ocassionally. Firefox especially is insanely slow and the longer I run it the more processing power it uses up along with the plugins.exe. Sometimes it will uses so much that it completely freezes my computer. Lately I've also been having trouble starting the computer where it won't even load windows.

I've ran Ccleaner daily and Malwarebytes weekly and find nothing and the problem has been getting progressively worse. I have Avast which updates daily.

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 .

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.

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

The first thing which strikes me is that you have 2 anti-virus applications on your computer ( Zone Alarm security suite and AVG Free) Having two anti virus applications running on your PC can give conflicts so I suggest you uninstall one.For the antispyware applications do you have all real time protection enabled?..I first would try Microsoft online test and see what comes up. The freezing can also indicate faulty memory, there for run a Memtest to rule that out.

Recently(about 2 weeks ago), my computer started freezing. It happened 5 times already(one of them occurred as I was typing this post). I wasn't doing anything in particular, just using Firefox to browser the web.

3 of the freezings occurred while I was just browsing, 2 occurred while my computer was starting up. No sites in general either, out of the 3 times I froze, I was on different sites each time(all of them are "known safe ones" too like ign.com, wikipedia, etc).

After the latest freeze(during browsing), I restarted my computer only for my computer to freeze again after 3 seconds(screen stayed the same, it happened right after it showed me my memory test). Then I restarted my computer again and it froze before anything showed up(monitor did not detect anything so the monitor did not show anything).
Here's what I have done so far:

1. I used memtest86 and done 3 full tests, no errors on any tests.

2. Did anti-virus and anti-spyware scan on my computer(I used: Avast, Spybot, Adaware).

3. Checked Windows Event Viewer(unfortunately it didn't log anything).

Here's the last things I did to my computer before I noticed the freezings:
1. I downloaded and installed Secunia PSI.

2. I downloaded and installed the latest version of WinRAR and Quicktime player(recommendations from Secunia).

3. I also installed various security patches from microsoft update.

Besides that, nothing in particular.

Ok this is my first time on this site and i have little understanding of the computer but let me try to explain the problem as well as i can.

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?

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.

First of all I run AMD Athlon 1700+ 1.48ghz, 512MB of RAM 60g and 120g hard drive. I have a RADEON 9550 graphics card - new addition to the computer.

OKay so now my computer is sporadically freezing. I'm not talking anything you can Ctrl alt delete. I mean I have to restart it every time! I am pretty computer savvy, I've gone through drivers, etc. It's not overheating. Checked everything. This computer is a clean slate basically.

So everytime I visit a page with streaming audio/video. It locks up. Or just whenever it feels like. But Definitely with streaming anything.

Hello,1st time poster. I have my friends PC here and I am looking for problems on it. He claims that it is freezing up at any given time. I already asked him what programs are running when it happens. He said it can be any programs that are open when it freezes up. I ran ad aware in safe mode and found a few tracking cookies. The ad aware was also updated. I checked his task manager to see his running processes and CPU usage. There is alot in there, but i manually checked each listing to ensure it is not obvious spyware, malware, etc. He said it happens when he is online, but admitted that the only time his PC is on is when he is online. I decided to turn to HJT and try posting to see if anyone else could please check to see if there is anything that i am missing.

I've had my computer since last march and I've had it formatted multiple times due to BSODs and freezes, after it has been formatted it works for while then the problem comes back. I've had it sent off to the manufacturer and they said it's not hardware but the upgraded my power supply from a 400 watt to a 700 watt. They also replaced the graphics card because the fan was making a noise, in fact they upgraded it from a GTX 650 to a GTX 650 Ti. Now it's something i'm installing but I can't figure out what it is. If you need anymore information then ask. I've done memory tests and stress tests so I'm 99% positive that it's not hardware but it's something I've installed but I can't figure out what. I'm quite confident that it's drivers.

A:Computer freezing help

Hey, Welcome to Seven forums.

When you say PC freezes, when does this happens? during games, watching videos or just like that. You also mentioned that the issue is due to drivers? Are you referring to GPU drivers? If yes, download the latest drivers from NVIDIA site and also download Driver Sweeper. Uninstall the GPU drivers, run driversweeper to clean the left overs of the drivers. Install the latest drivers now. Reboot.

AMD Sempron 2600+
ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 pro 128MB
768MB RAM
Hitachi 120GB HD

Right then, my problem. Most of the games I run will play for a few minutes, then freeze. The computer makes some clicking noises, then I get a blank blue screen. I did have a WD 80GB HD that I thought was the problem. That got replaced by the Hitachi. I have also tried reinstalling windows, updating the bios, using Microsoft ATI drivers, using current and older ATI drivers, using current and older Omega ATI drivers(i figured cause it was games that it might have something to do with the graphics card), I've even tried different IDE cables and a new power supply . Please, anyone with any idea of what this could be let me know.

Cheers!!
 

A:Computer Freezing

it is probably a memory problem.

to start off with, you have 2 (or possibly 3) unmatched RAM sticks, which is probably where your problem lies. Remove all but 1 RAM stick and see if it still crashes.

give us your RAM configuration (i.e. 1x512MB + 1x256MB -or- 3x256MB, etc.) and your exact RAM specs (brand name, model #, speed, CAS/timing of each RAM stick)

Hello everyone. I am experiencing a problem where my computer freezes when I play a game. It doesn't BSOD, simply the image and the sound freezes. Five minutes after I connect to a Counter Strike: Source server or when a Modern Warfare 3 match starts, my computer freezes. This does not occur 100% of the time as I was able to play a session of Counter Strike: Source without this problem occurring. This problem has not occurred outside of gaming. However, this has happened a total of three times in less than two days. This is only happening after there was a power outage in my home. My computer is new and custom made, I will list the specs:

Hello,
I hope someone can help me with this. My computer freezes up randomly on me. It could happen immediately after start up or 4-5 hours after start up. When it happens I have to manually shut down by holding the power button down till it shuts off. I have restored and that helped for a day or two and then my husband reinstalled the operating system and that seemed to help for about a week then I went out and bought system mechanic and once I ran it and "fixed" all the problems it was great for 2 days and now it's doing it again. I have run a virus scan and it came up clean but I don't know if it looked for "everything" you know how there is always something new out there. It is a Dell Inspiron 1525 and I'm using what ever version of vista that came with the computer. lol

Good afternoon,

Except for the IE window I have open, the rest of my pc is frozen. If I pause for too long, I will have to ctrl/alt/del to unfreeze it, only to have it happen a few seconds later. It's very annoying to say the least, but I cannot figure out what is causing it. I've checked for malware, spyware, registry errors (pc bug doctor). I've stopped almost everything from loading at start up. I went through my event viewer errors to see if there was a problem, deleted updates that were not compatible with my system. Still..nothing.

Hi, Everyone. I have just built a new computer and having a bad problem. Randomly, while in game or in desktop, my display will go black, All sound will Freeze and internet connection drops but pc stays on with hardrive activity. The only way to fix this is to turn off pc and reboot. I have had this problem for quite some time even with my older pc build. The only hardware that transfered from old to new is the power supply, operating system, hardrives and video card. However, i have tested another power supply and a new gpu and still the problem persists.I have all the latest drivers and the newest updates. The only thing left is the harddrives but in my experience it wouldnt cause this because this problem has occured even in bios. All temps are fine as well. When i made the transfer i whiped the drives and installed a fresh copy of vista. My friend purchased all of the old hardware besides the hardrive and psu. He is also using the old gtx 280 and has no problems. I just cant figure it out. Thanks for any help someone can give me.
My Specs: Intel core i7 [email protected] 3.2ghz
asus rampage II extreme
gtx 280
2x raptor 300gb in raid 0
corsair 12gb DDR3 pc1600
xion 1000w psu

Hi, I'm having problems with my computer freezing while it's on idle.
For example I work on the computer for several hours with no problems then when I finish I leave it on and when I come back after 2 hours or so the screen is completely blue and the computer is frozen. I have to turn it off by hitting the off button and everything comes back fine. This happens everytime I leave the computer in idle.
This all started happening after getting the Trojan W32 looksky, I removed the trojan with the SmitFraudFix, but now my computer keeps doing the above.
I also get this C:\Docume~1\RickTo~1\Locals~1\Temp\~RomFn_00000824 that I can't remove. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Rick Toste

A:Computer Freezing

You could try re-installing your video card drivers/software. Maybe they were corrupt by the trojan? Just a thought...

Also- make sure hibernation is disabled. Hibernation sucks, and a lot of time results in freezes or the pc not coming back up. Standby should be fine and is just as effective as hibernation at conserving power.

My computer keeps freezing for no "apparent" reason. It is very intermittent, but only seems to stop when carrying out high processing power tasks such as playing Americas Army online, or burning a CD.

I thought at first that maybe the RAM was faulty, so I performed a check using Microsoft Memory checker, but all is fine.

Therefore, I was wondering if somebody would be able to check my HJT log for me just to check that I have no nasties in there that could be causing this.

Many thanks for your time.

I have this problem where no matter what I'm doing my computer will randomly stutter up and freeze. It's weird because while it's stuttering it will still take into account actions that I give it while it's in a frozen period. If I click something it will slowly show it registering it between it freezing. Even worse as of lately I'll get these random distortions sometimes while I'm listening to music, and as of today it hit its worst peak. I was just browsing the web, and the music started distorting, and then my screen went pure white. I had to do a hard restart. Anyone got any ideas? Also, my music collection isn't getting messed up is it? I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on a custom build I put together myself.

A:Computer Freezing Up

I'd run PC Check 6.5 off Hiren's Boot CD to test the hardware. A more rudimentary way is to boot up with an Ubuntu boot CD, which you would have to create with another working computer. This loads the OS from the CD into the RAM.
Can you get into the BIOS OK or does it freeze up?

I have been having problems with my computer freezing up quite a bit for the last 6 months. I have changed hard drives, downloaded Tune-up Utilities, cleaned out my files, and cleaned out the inside of my computer and still it freezes up on me! It?s very annoying! I'll be right in the middle of something, then nothing responds and it freezes up! I am surprised that it hasn't frozen up, while I have been typing this problem! So, I end up having to hit the reset button and lose what I had up on my computer!
Here are my computer specs:
I have a custom made computer, which is about 3 years old, with an ASUS motherboard and parts.
An Intel Pentium D cpu
2Gigs of RAM
250 GB hard drive
DVD & CD drives
McAfee antivirus, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes anti-malware, Super antispyware.
Nothing special here. Please someone help me!

A:Computer Freezing up

Error messages?

Have you checked Event Viewer for possible clues?

How much free space on the C: partition?

Are fans working properly...have you checked the CPU temperatures in the BIOS after a freeze?

A:help! - computer freezing up!

Hi cujo771, welcome to TSG.

There was nothing wrong with turning off your AV for the install. Not sure what happened, but you have no security issues going on with your log.

There is this entry you can fix with HJT:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

Check the entry in HJT, click Fix and then REBOOT.

You may want to consider using XP restore function to restore your PC to a point before you did the install.

I have had this problem for a while now but now it is getting very bad with the computer freezing as much as like every hour sometimes.

A noticeable thing that happens when my computer freezes is the computer sounds like it is in under stress and is working hard at something.

I recorded the time of when the computer froze and went into Event Viewer to see if I can find anything at that time and I found a lot of stuff.

I have uploaded a .evtx file with the information that event viewer gave me on the time when the computer froze.

Own a Lenovo Thinkpad T61, Running Windows Vista Business 32-bit with 4 GB RAM

Recently my computer keeps freezing in the middle of anything I do, and it freezes hard, I lose all controls of the computer, cant force quit out of anything and cant do anything except force a shut down and reboot.

It happens whether im on the net or working in excel or photoshop it doesnt matter what im doing but it keeps happening consistently

I recently purchased a 1 TB Seagate external HD to back up my system/files extra storage etc.
I did not have the issue until after I got this drive, and im not sure if this in fact is what is causing the problem, or if its just a coincidence. Im working on my local C: Drive when it happens, so its not happening while I access the External drive.

The drive has some software that I am using as Seagate Backup Manager which automatically backs up files and folders for me, im not sure if this seagate backup software could cause some issues, and whether or not I can just take the software off and set vista up to automatically back up my files to the drive as opposed to a 3rd Party software...

Any thoughts??? I run a virus scan regularly as well as adaware scans daily/every other day

Dont think I need to go the HJT this route so i figured i would get some feedback here

thanks in advance

A:Computer Keeps Freezing

Hi, to trouble shoot this issue first remove the external H/D and reboot. Now run your normal programs and see if the issue is resolved. If so there is a conflict with the software you are using on the drive.
