Preferred Solution: Computer still freezing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Resource Monitor

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

Hello,

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

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

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

I'm attaching the zip file required.

Thanks,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Disk Cleanup:

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

Defrag your HD:

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

Run chkdsk:

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

Remove unnecessary startups

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

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

You will be prompted to ... Read more

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

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

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

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

System specs are:

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

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

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

Solutions I have tried:

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

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

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

so I got a computer that keeps freezing up on me. sometimes it runs for hours before hanging, and sometimes it hangs every 5-10 minutes.

I ran memtest and it seemed to freeze up during memtest. the little blinking icon was normal, but the test wasnt running and the commands didnt work.

does this mean that my memory sticks are bad?

I don't know what else to say other than my computer has been freezing and firefox has been freezing lately. I called the manufacturer and he said to restore windows to factory settings, so I did that. Things were great for a week or so, but recently my computer has begun freezing again. It happens pretty frequently. Firefox will also freeze when trying to get it to do very little work, like loading two tabs simultaneously, e.g. My AVS found a suspicious file recently and quarantined it, but still, the freezing has continued. Please advise.

And I do not think that I have a Boot CD

Had the day from hell with my computer, antivirus stopped working and my computer got infected. On safe mode with networking, I ran malwarebyte a couple times, cleaned most all of it out. When rebooting to windows, computer became super slow, like 5 minutes to open a window, etc. I had to force reboot a few times. But then I started getting a screen that demanded a reboot disk. Only one I have is. a windows vista disc. I had windows 7. It won't let me even get that blue startup screen where I can push f keys.
Can anyone give me some advice, or do I need to just get a new hard drive.

A:computer infected , cleaned, bsod, freezing, now computer wants boot disk

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

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

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

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

My laptop is a Gateway 450 ROG and it has had this problem for the last week. It will run for roughly 40 minutes, and then (even when small programs are running) it will freeze up. My mouse wont move, no command will respond and i am forced to hold the power button and shut it off.
2nd Problem, occasionally when i turn on the computer it wont boot up. The screen will turn on and stop with a dash blinking in the top left corner, not proceeding to any boot up of any kind, and just recently while i shut it down from this sort of freezing up, little pictures of pixel hearts and dots started appearing until i shut it off.

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.

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.

The freezing can also indicate faulty memory, there for run a Memtest to rule that out.

Hello everyone - I am a new member of the forum and hope that someone reading this might be able to help me with a problem I have with my computer.

In recent weeks the computer screen keeps freezing with the cursor being replaced by the hour glass symbol. This usually happens after several hours' computer usage - but sometimes it occurs soon after the computer is turned on.

When this happens, I am unable to log off; the computer on/off button does not work when the screen freezes and I have to turn the computer off at the mains.

In order to be able to log back into my broadband internet connection I have to turn the computer and and off twice and then on again .

Sometimes when the computer screen image freezes a message box appears always saying "End programme" (i.e. "End programme - CiceroUIWndFrame" or "End programme - mixer").

My computer runs on the Windows XP operating system.

I changed from Internet Explorer browser 6 to 7 yesterday but the problem of the computer screen freezing persists.

Any helpful advice on this would be much appreciated.

I use a Dell Vostro 1520 (Laptop)
RAM is 3GB
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T6570 @2.10 GHZ
Video Card: GeForce 9300M GS
OS: Windows Vista Service Pack 2

To give a full story, around 2 months ago I would experience random fps lag spikes while playing games on my computer. I assumed it was my video card's driver. I updated it and it didn't solve the problem, so I just dealt with it. At some point it got really annoying and I checked my physical memory and it was at 60% after closing multiple programs. I had also noticed it took significantly longer to open any video or music files and my computer would occasionally freeze for quite a while. I then assumed it was malware, so I uninstalled any programs I no longer used and used Malwarebytes to scan my computer. It came up with some results, but nothing really appeared threatening. I still deleted all of them. No result was shown, so I used Avast anti-virus full scan and windows live essentials and deleted any threat that would appear. Still no progress was made and as of recently my computer will freeze in a few seconds after logging in. I read some forum posts with a similar problem and the solutions were usually to do with RAM or the video card driver, so I booted in safe mode (no problems) and disabled my video card.

I've done some troubleshooting, and determined that I should update my ATK0110 file, as I'm using the one from 1995 that is known to cause BSOD issues. Although I'm not getting a BSOD, since I'm using this file, I think I should update it. I'm hoping it fixes my issue.

I've downloaded the zip file with the updated ATK0110 file, but I'm stuck on how to update it. Do I just cut/paste it into my system32\drivers folder, and replace the existing file with the new one? Or is there something else I should do to update this file?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

What is the exact make and model of your system (or motherboard)?
FYI - the BSOD issue applies to using the 2005 version of the file with Windows7.
If you're using a 1995 version you've got more serious problems than just that file.

I've posted about this issue before and thought I had a solution but it has started to occur again.

My pc locks up during 3D applications constantly. It's a hard lock (no mouse and keyboard use) until I physically reset the machine. I've replaced my motherboard, RAM, Video card, and processor. I've tested another power supply and all the components work fine. I've run Memtest for over 36 hours per stick (2x) of RAM and they have also turned out fine. I even purchased new RAM just to be sure. My PC still locks up in 3D applications.

The funny thing is there are no logs of any errors after reboot. No crash report, no video card driver failure, nothing. System specs are below:

Asus P5N-D Mobo
Intel Q9300 Quad-Core
4gig Cosair XMS2 RAM (2x sticks)
Cosair 620 Watt PS
Nvidia 9800GT (Tried an ATI 1950X as well)
Windows 7 Ultimate (RC) (Installed this after the same issue kept occuring in Windows XP Professional)
No other devices or cards in the box.

Can anyone help?

**edit

I forgot to mention that this only happens with 4gig of RAM installed. I've run for days on 2gig (1x stick) and haven't encountered an error. I have tried each RAM slot independently, as well as in multiple configurations.

I have reverted back to stock settings in bois and still deos not help just makes my computer slow. I can not update bois because there is no new ones and I have the latest drivers. My voltage is sitting at 1.47 and is automatic determind by my bois. I have done bench marks with 3d mark 06 and it geos though fine and I can do burn in test on all my hardware fine.

So why deos my games lock up when playing games and not when doing other things? and how to fix problem?

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'm not even going to pretend to know what I'm talking about...this might be a problem with the network, gaming stuff or something completely unrelated.

We have two computers networked. Lately one of them has been freezing up - the mouse still moves around but absolutely nothing can be clicked on. Pressing control-alt-delete doesn't bring up the task manager. There's usually a lot of swearing and then we reboot.

It SEEMS to be freezing up more often when my brother is on the other computer playing his games (such as Spore, Command & Conquer, etc...my computer-savvy sister has updated the RAM and video stuff so the gaming computer has no problems running).

My question is, could the fact the computers are networked have anything to do with one of them constantly freezing up?

After the computer freezes we usually have to reboot, which works for a time. However, we do get this message (might be completely unrelated):

Could not load file or assembly ?MOM.Implementation, Version=2.0.2895.26680, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e? or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

In every game I play now it seems that once I get to a certain point in the game that stresses my computer by any means it freezes up and if I let this go on for too long it will continue to stay frozen and play the sound that was being played at the second it was last frozen over and over. I have to reset my computer in order for it to be shut down because once it freezes for too long it does not become unfrozen. I was unsure of the cause of this and tried to do a fresh install of Windows and everything to see if this would resolve the problem and was extremely disappointed to find out that a complete wipe and fresh install of windows did not fix this issue.

I am using windows 7. It freezes when I am watching videos or playing videos games, if I wait 10-20 seconds it will usually unfreeze and will go back to normal. I have tried CCleaner and it did not work for me. My computer does freeze on a regular basis. I want to try everything before i go see a professional. Are their any suggestions you guys have?

A:My computer keeps freezing.

A computer that freezes is usually caused by overheating. Or a failing Power Supply Unit. Shut down the computer and take off the side. Clean out the dust and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Take a look at the label for the PSU and report the Make, Model# and Wattage. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning.
Try doing a Clean Boot. If this works then add each startup item one at a time until you find the culprit.

Recently my computer started freezing it completely freezes and becomes unresponsive and I have to hold down the power button to reboot, so my first attempt was to scan the hardware I ran a Pc-Check diagnostics and all the hardware passed I then completely formatted the hard drive and restored the computer. Once Windows 7 completely installed I installed the missing wireless driver however, after using the computer for about 15min it froze again. I then disassemble the laptop and did some internal cleaning I blew out the dust from the heat sink and applied new thermal paste to the processor. Even after that the problem still remains. Now there is a catch when I boot the computer in safe mode it doesn't freeze even after leaving it on for 5hrs so I don't know what the problem is in normal boot. Your help is kindly appreciated thanks.

When you did the re-install of Win7 did you also add any security software?

If it was just Windows 7 with nothing else added then I would suspect a hardware problem, start by running an extended test on the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.

Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturer's diagnostics for ISO (CD) not the one for Windows.
When the download is complete right click the file and select Extract Here and burn the image to a CD.
In Windows 7 right click the extracted file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts. For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. ImgBurn
Install the program and start the application. Select the top left hand option to burn image file to disk and then on the next window click on the small yellow folder icon and browse to the file you have downloaded from the links below. Then click on the two grey discs with the arrow in between (bottom left) and leave it to complete the operation.
Boot the PC into the Bios setup and set the CD/DVD drive to 1st in the boot sequence. Insert the disk in the drive then reboot and the disc will load into dos.

Computer has been working wonderfully until recently it will freeze up, but not all the time, YET. Mouse will still work, but have to do ctrl/alt/delete to get out of everything, and then it takes a long time. When I get back on line, it comes back the way it was before.
My recent activities have been, long "memory lane" trips on Youtube. And openning something from a friend, that ended up to be an ad for weight loss with Fox News ads around it. She did not send it.
So after reading the special instructions, I have backed up my stuff, and did all the scans.
Thanks so much for your help!!!

I have a HP mini tower 3ghz intel processor, with 3.25 gigs of ram, upgraded graphics card, one 80 gig WD hard drive and a second Tera byte hard drive.

I have been having problems with it freezing up on average five minutes after logging on, the cursor still moves and every menu I open stays frozen on the screen and eventually no menus will open, Control Alt Delete does not work at this point. The only way I can get it back to working is to kill the power reboot and quickly have Avast do a boot scan before it freezes up. It will work after this for on average for a day before it freezes again.

I have ran regular scans with avast, AVG, Trojan remover and Maleware Bytes. I have ran scans in safe mode with avast, and maleware bytes in safe mode and of course the boot scan with avast. The boot scan found a few corrupted files which I removed, didn't help.
I also ran a pc cleanup program by PC Tools it cleaned the usual stuff and registry. My PC starts and runs quickly thanks to this but it still freezes up.

If you need more info let me know.

Thanks

A:Computer freezing up

it cleaned the usual stuff and registryRegistry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to...

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.

I have a Compaq Presario 7000. It has XP Pro with 256MB RAM. For some reason the computer freezes after 30 minutes or so of being powered on. I thought it was bad RAM.

I remove the old ram and replace with new one and still does it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Test for overheating.

Pull the side cover and place a small desk type fan blowing air into the case. If it stops, you have found the cause; overheating.

If that does not work, restart the system in safe mode. While in safe mode run an app that will stress the system like prime95. If it runs prime95 for an hour or two without errors, you have a problem with a driver, software app, etc. If it locks up in safe mode, you have a hardware issue.

I don't know what I have, but it is making me crazy. My computer has been running slow and freezing up since Friday. I ran SpySweeper, MalwareByte, AdAware, Spybot and found a few minor things that were removed but it has not helped.

If I do not run any programs on computer, it is fine. When I start running programs it eventually will freeze. Sometimes it goes pretty long before it freezes, sometimes not. It tends to freeze more quickly when running itunes or multiple programs. OTOH, it started acting like it was going to freeze when I ran the GMER scan, and I managed to shut everything else down and keep going. The GMER scan took quite a while, and it did not freeze during it.

When it freezes, the windows start freezing and then the mouse freezes as well. It runs fairly slow regardless of what I am doing before freeze. I cannot find anything suspicious running in task manager.

I left it on last night running nothing, and when I woke up there was a blue screen with lots of text that was somewhat beyond me, but it seemed to imply I had a corrupted hard drive. The comuter re-started, and I have been able to run the scans and post this, but it will still freeze up.

I have no idea if it is related, but somehow my interface.mpq file in World of Warcraft got deleted, and that is not working now either.

There were some boys on my computer before trouble started, but they claimed they were just doing addictivegames.com, and I believe them. There was nothing ... Read more

Just on a whim I re-ran with SpySweeper with an update, and it caught Mal/Sinowa-A. It removed the bug, but as i was cleaning out Recycling, temp internet files, etc., computer froze up again. I re-booted and re-ran both SpySweeper and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, which found nothing, but the freezes are still happening.

A little research shows that this is something that seems to be making the rounds and is associated with the trogan Mbroot-A.

About a Month and a half ago my computer started having issues with freezing up.

My internet slows to a crawl then stops. My roommates internet is unaffected. Then everything locks up for 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Computer then un-freezes and continues as if nothing happened.

I have no clue what the issue is. I tried unplugging all spare HDD's, fans, and various other things. I re-installed windows and ran that almost fresh for 2 weeks and still had an issue.

The only common factor seems to be high internet usage. Steam trying to download a game, loading a video on YouTube, gif's, ect.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

System Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
(bbLean shell replacment...this is not the issue i tested a clean install and it had the same issue)
CPU: AMD-fx6300
Mother Board: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P (bad Ethernet drivers but i use a WiFi card)
Graphics: Evga GeForce gtx 650
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4x2 @1600mHz
WiFi card: TP-LINK TL-WN951N
PSU: Rosewill 400 watt PSU

A:Computer Freezing

You should only download drivers from the Gigabyte web site for your motherboard. If you have bad drivers, then you have gotten them from somewhere else.
Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the demgmt.msc results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager are there any devices with yellow flags? Even if there aren't;
Download the Chipset and LAN driver from the Gigabyte page for your model: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-78LMT-S2P (rev. 5.x) and any other drivers you require from the Device Manager.
Freezing is usually caused by overheating. After updating your drivers, shut down the computer and take the side off, and clean out all dust and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Be sure to keep all fans plugged in and when you start it, and they are all spinning.
Boot into Setup (Bios) go to PC Health. Check the temperatures, and the voltages.
