Computer Freezing

Q: Computer Freezing

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 in my browser history to indicate otherwise.

Here is my log:

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Computer 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.)

A: Computer Freezing

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.

Here is new scan and attachment:

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"

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

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

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 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.

Now, its slower then my older computer, which I thought was impossible. I mean...This is pathetic. I unistalled AVG cause there was a process running that is supposed to be a Trojan, and a program said AVG was running it. So, I deleted it, was prompted to restart, so I did. It took literally 10 minutes to shut down and restart. At worst, my old computer took 5 minutes. (P4 2.8, 1.5 gigs ram, ATI Radeon 9800). So, how do I fix this? I have a theory its Microsoft forcing people to upgrade by putting out crappy updates. I mean, for my card, the newest driver is dated the beginning of last year...They come out with a new one but its Vista only. Woo...idiots. So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times. I reinstalled. Same thing. Oblivion goes for about 30 minutes then crashes to the desktop. I then hit the window to maximize again, and it freezes. This has happened everytime as well.

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.

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.

How old is your computer? Have you ever reinstalled your OS?

What I usually recommend is if your computer is at least a couple of years old and have yet to do a clean install of your Operating System now is the time, especially when it starts acting up =)

Good morning

Apologies if this post is in the wrong area but this is my first time here.

Basically the problem is as follows, randomly when undertaking simple tasks, such as running chrome, word outlook etc my Toshiba laptop has begun to freeze (completely). It will hang for about 10-15 seconds, then produce a short beep once and everything will continue fine. Secondly, this morning upon start up it hung on the initial boot screen (where you can select boot menu or enter setup) and wouldn't progress. I powered off several times, removed the battery, restarted and eventually it decided to boot but I would say it was about 30 minutes of waiting an trying again.

Specs are as follows:

Toshiba Satellite Pro
Intel Core2 Duo 2.10ghz
4gb Ram
32 bit win 7
On board graphics

Nothing special and is about 3 years old, simply a work laptop so it doesn't run or do anything above word, excel, outlook etc.

The only change to the system is a new stick of 2g ram was put into it about 2 months ago. So I am thinking the ram may be faulty.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem or have any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

I recommend testing the hard disk and the memory.

Determine the manufacturer of your hard disk, download and set up their testing utility.

MemTest86 is a free program for testing memory.

Recently, my computer has been freezing up on my. Strange part is, it doesn't freeze while running High End games but when I playing smaller games or downloading and once or twice browsing Web pages.

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:

Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Professional Fatal1ty
Power Supply: Corsair HX750
Processor: Intel 2500k (no overclock)
RAM: Mushkin 8GB DDR3 2133Mhz. (no overclock)
Graphics Card: eVGA GTX 280 (no overclock) - Driver 285.62
Sound Card: ASUS Xonar Essence STX
Network Card: Bigfoot Killer 2100
HDD 1: Samsung 320GB 7,200RPM
HDD 2: Western Digital 250GB 7,200RPM
DVD: HP dvd1260
Case: Corsair 650D

Here's a video of the problem occurring: Video
Here are some images taken from my cell-phone: Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4

Thanks for the help!

Looks like video artifacts due to defective/overheating video card.

You might have damaged some hardware in the power outage. Is your computer hooked up to a UPS?

I wasnt sure where to put this as I have no way of knowing what the cause is. I am WILLING to bet its hardware.. thats all I've got. I decided I wanted to put together a computer as my old one was freezing all the time. Once I got all the pieces and put them together the NEW computer was freezing just as bad.

I can't tell what the issue is. The only parts I migrated over from my old computer were my hard drive for storage, my power supply, and my graphics card which I have since then replaced completely. Still freezing. Here are my specs

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.
 

A:Computer Freezing

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.

Sometime over the past few months, when using IE [now 11] my computer started randomly and suddenly freezing for about a minute - nothing will free it up - and then just as suddenly it will continue with no error or other indication. Nothing is written to an event log. I've disabled every add-on and it has made no difference.

Chrome doesn't do it. FireFox doesn't do it. Safari doesn't do it. In fact, except for when you are in IE it never ever happens.

As I said, I've disabled all of the add-ons. I've also run every single FixIt solution that seemed even vaguely related to no effect. I updated my nVidia display driver. I removed that graphics card and driver and installed a different one. Nothing changes the symptom of the PC randomly locking up when running IE. I didn't really expect it to since it never occurs when running any other browser or program.

Does this issue ring a bell with anyone? Better yet, does anyone know how I can fix it - other than just never using IE?

Thanks in advance...

I have no graphics card if that is relevant, but I doubt starcraft requires a graphics card, and I often watch videos on media player classic where it has frozen often.Well, I guess it cant be random, usually after it freezes once if I try to run my comp again it will freeze a lot sooner (a few minutes) than if I give it a break for a few hours and come back (then it will take a hour or something). Also, sometimes windows wont startup at all and it will stay at the dell screen when you first turn on the comp.here is my hijackthis log Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 10:34:36 PM, on 18/12/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet ...

I am running XP Pro with IE 8. This is a new install, but there appears to be a glitch somewhere. I can be working and all of a sudden the computer screen will freeze. There are two buttons on top of my custom built computer tower, one is the power button, and the other is a long slender (1 1/4" long and 1/8" wide) button which I honestly don't understand what it is for. I do know you can push this button and it will reboot, once it reboots all functions go back to working normally. Does anyone have an idea of what may cause this and how to remedy the problem? Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help with a solution to this problem.

Hello everyone. Lately I'm having problems with PC so I hope you can help me.
Whenever I start up the computer and log in, it freezes after few seconds or when I try to open some program. I get error message "Windows is not responding" and after some time, cursor stops moving and everything freezes, so I'm forced to go into safe mode and in safe mode it doesn't freeze, it works normally.
First time it happened about a week ago. I didn't know what caused the problem so I reinstalled Windows 7. Then after installation, I installed video drivers and other programs that I need, but it happened again. Probably some program causes it but I don't know which one.
And also, it doesn't happen all the time, it happens about 90% of the time. Sometimes I can use the "normal" mode, but for now I'm stuck in safe mode. I hope you can help me.

Good Afternoon;

Thank you for taking the time to look into this log and reading over this post.

Problem: My computer has trouble starting up - it will, more and more frequently, freeze on startup. It will get to the load up screen with Windows XP and the loading bar and freeze there. When it does get all the way booted up sometimes, again becoming more frequently, it is running at 100% usage even when I have nothing running myself! A lot of people use this computer so I have no idea what it could be. It is scanned regularly and have been reformatted twice. I also have problem with internet connectivity - I am on a wireless network at home and only my computer is affected (I actually have another computer directly beside it that connects fine). It will connect and disconnect about every 20 minutes. Linksys wireless adapter and router, 54G. Thanks again. It was purchased at MGD.

Specs

Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.8GHz
1.25GB DDR Ram 333MHZ (the 256mb ram is actually 333mhz the 1GB is higher and clocks down to run properly, if that sounds right? Both are kingston ram)

Hi. I have Windows XP. I recently had a virus that was resolved a couple weeks ago. Ever since my computer periodically freezes for no apparent reason. Here are my logs. I do not have access to a Windows Install disc, or a Boot CD. Thanks.
