Computer Keeps Freezing!

Q: Computer Keeps Freezing!

First of all, I would like to apologize because I cannot download the TSG SysInfo because my computer freezes after only being on it for about 5 minutes. So sorry for any problems that will hender fixing my computer. Okey so here goes, today I turned on my laptop and it loaded like normal, and all my programs loaded as well . As I proceed to load the internet my computer completely freezes. I mean mouse, keyboard and all. So I turn off my laptop thinking it would be a one time problem or that it was over heated but it repeated the same process, whether I click on a program or if I just let it sit for 5 minutes the result is always the same. I even tried loading my computer in safe mode but every single time I have to hard reset it because it freezes after only 5 minutes, even in safe mode. I'm not sure if it is a virus but I did a virus scan with AVG on my computer yesterday and there were no viruses detected. I didn't even use my computer today because I was over my boyfriends house and used his laptop for my school work. Please help me! I can't figure out why my computer keeps freezing, I cannot get anything done on it I have a HP with Windows 7 that is only 1 year and 2 months old.

Thanks in advance for your help oh and p.s I am using my mother's laptop to type out this informationa and look for solutions, just in case you were wondering.

Preferred Solution: Computer Keeps Freezing!

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 Keeps Freezing!

Do this on a known clean computer...

Download the Windows Defender Offline Tool and save to your Desktop.
You will have to select the correct version for your system, either 32 or 64 bit

Double click to run the tool, Windows 7 or Vista user right click and select "Run as Administrator"
Read the instructions in the new window and select "Next"

In the new window accept the agreement:

In the new window select your USB Flash Drive, then select "Next"

In the new window ensure you Flash drive is selected, if not click on "Refresh" then select "Next"

In the new window accept the formatting alert by selecting "Next"

Files will be Downloaded:

Files will be processed and created

Flash drive will be formatted and prepared

Files will be added to the Flash Drive and the tool will be created.

The procedure is finished and the Tool created, click on "Finish" to complete.

Plug the USB into the sick PC and boot up, if it does not boot from the flash drive change the boot options as required, Use F12 as it boots, change options...
As it boots you`ll see files being loaded and the windows splash screen, eventually the tool will run a "Quick Scan" follow the prompts and deal with what it finds.

When the Quick scan completes initiate a full scan, let it complete and deal with anything it finds..

When finished remove the flash drive, press the Esc key to boot into regular windows.

Navigate to the following file:
"C:\windows\windows defender offline\support\mssWrapper.log" Open with notepad and copy and paste it into a reply.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 =)

Hi,

I have been referred here by an administrator from another thread I posted.

I have pasted parts of that thread here (in red) to give you a background to the problem:

A month or two my pc kept crashing and when I tried to reload I got the BOOTMGR IS CORRUPT. THE SYSTEM CANNOT BOOT. I basically turn PC of and on about 20 times and eventually it started working. Sometimes instead of that message it would say THE FILE HEADER CHECKSUM DOES NOT MATCH THE COMPUTED CHECKSUM. This kept happening with more and more regularity until I contacted Packard Bell who advised to restore to factory settings which I did.

PC worked fine for a month after but I have just returned from a weeks holiday and within five mins of turning PC on, it has happened again.

The problem is back in full force. Freezing, clear white screen then when I reset it either:

1. turns starts to load windows buit then resets itself repeatedly
2. Starts to load windows but then gives the BOOTMGR message
3. Starts to load windows but then gives the CHECKSUM message

One time it even said something about a disk not loading - cant remember the exact message, probably because of the descending red mist...

One time the freeze happened I was listening to Spotify and that kept playing perfectly, yet everything on screen was unresponsive (except the mouse cursor).

On the advice of an admin, I ran memory test, HD tests and then Malware. Upon running the malware scan it found this: TROJ_BHO.RKN

My computer freezes mostly when Im playing a game on steam and I'm on skype videochatting. Although I just did that the other day and it didnt freeze. When I got off the game I went to go download another one and still while on skype and then it froze. It did that one more time when I tried downloading another game afterwards. So I assume its not overheating when it kinda does it at certain times. Although, sometimes it'll even freeze when I'm just watching anime online. It also freezes rarely when I'm not even doing anything on it, because I always leave my computer on cx I know I should turn it off tho when I'm not using it, but I at least doubt its overheating. I don't know if it could be a virus or maybe I need to update drivers again? I updated my drivers a while ago burt whatever thing my brother told me to download said I had more updates but it didnt seem important, since it was only for like audio or small things.

Hello,

Im on XP Pro, virtually every time i login to my computer, when i get to the desktop it freezes and the only way to get past this is to use task manager and logout.

During this process the End Now section appears with explorer.exe and the option to end now, so i click end now and back i go the login screen. I do this about 3-4 times and finally it doesnt freeze.

Also when i click on icons and open folders, sometimes it will freeze.

Can someone please help.

I would like to start by saying ANY help at all with this problem would be life-saving.

So this is my problem a few days ago for no apparent reason my computer started freezing. This doesnt occur during any specific time but a few times I have experianced are

1. Right when windows finishes loading and my desktop appears
2. While surfing the internet
3. While watching a youtube video
4. While playing a flash game

It occurs during all these times but MUCH more frequently while playing World of Warcraft. I have 3.5 gigs of RAM and a nvidia 8400 not the best system but i have never had problems running the game before.

The weird part is this, sometimes I will be able to play World of Warcraft for hours on end with no lag at all. Other times I will have to restart my computer several times in a row (sometimes as many as 15-20 before I just give up!) Many times this occurs within 1-2 minutes of loading World of Warcraft (sometimes even at the login screen) but I have played for 1/2 to 2 hours before it occured many times before.

If it does freeze while playing WoW these are some things I noticed.

1. My player continues to move in the direction he was moving during the freeze. (If I was moving)

2. All the other players / effects around me continue uninterupted. (example players can still attack me while I am frozen)

3. My keyboard and Mouse have no function. Neither work at all.

4. Windows shuts down properly if I hit the power button.

My computer has been freezing up on me randomly the past two days. I don't know what is causing it because there doesn't seem to be anything in particular that triggers it. The only thing I can do when this happens is manually restart it. I took a picture of my screen the last time it happened so you could see what it does.I'd like to figure out what's going on since this has happened at least four times today. Normally what happens is I click on a link, computer freezes, picture goes fuzzy, and if any sound is playing it skips the last part of what it played over and over. But there was one time that it happened while I was just moving my cursor across the screen.Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

(Plus a loud "beeeeep" in my speakers)

I've been scanning my computer again and again and no virus are found. I scanned with AVG and Kaspersky virus removal tool. I even looked throught the process to make sure theres nothing that shouldn't be there but everything is fine. And the temperature is fine too.

Feel free if you have any question,
Thank you.

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. Also, my DPC's go upto and over 50% when certain things load.

Could they be related?

I built my PC about eight months ago and it has this annoying knack of freezing a lot. It happens a couple times a day and is very annoying. I have tested my ram and it is not just my mouse being unresponsive. I can't find anything online about it. Could someone please help?!

How are you cooling it? Specs say Vishera (LIQUID COOLING REQUIRED).

Can he quit the game when the system crashes or does he have to manually restart?

SO for the last couple of weeks I have an issue with my computer freezing. I noticed my computer first freezing when I upgraded my case to a Antec 1200 case. I thought that this was possibly a psu issue so I went out and bought a $110 BFG 650 watt psu. However the issue continues. Every once in a while my computer will freeze while in my Vista hdd and same issue in my Xp hdd. So what is the deal? I have four hdd's connected ( 2 sata and 2 pata) my computer specs are:

Amd 6000+x2, 3 gig dd2 dual channel ram, 8800 gts, 650 watt psu, and antec 1200 case. My CPU doesn't seem to be over heating the only thing I can think of is that the cpu is twigging out? and I don't think four hdd's would cause the power issue?

A:Computer Freezing

2 places to check (in both OS's)
- Event Viewer Look for events in the System and the Application log files around the time of the freeze
- Task Manager...Processes tab Ensure you've selected the option to show processes from all users. Also, in the View menu, select, Select columns and place a checkmark in the I/O Reads and the I/O Other colums. Drag the borders of Task Manager out so you can view all the columns. Then wait for the freeze and see what image name is taking up the most CPU, Memory or I/O Reads or Other.

Hi I am new to this site but it seems promising and I am hoping someone can assist me.
My computer keeps freezing. I have run all of the virus programs, adware programs and spybot. I have looked at the svchost.exe files and found nothing in caps. I have reviewed the cpu usuage and it is 2 to 4 percent. I have defraged the hard drive, and I am attaching the Hijacking log.
Can someone please tell me what is the problem here. I thought I have eliminated a virus but someone told me the svchost.exe virus is not seen by the usual programs.
HELP!!!
Thanks

check your ram with memtest 86+ booted from a floppy/CD for at least 7 passes. Check your PSU for proper voltages with a multimeter. Check your temps. Check your drivers and BIOS versions.

Hello,I'm having some problems with my computer, could someone please help me?I'm not quite sure what the problem is. My computer might be infected with something, but I'm not sure.For the past week or so, my computer has been freezing up a lot. I really only use my computer for acessing the internet, so I'm not sure if the problem is affecting other things on my computer. When I first open my browser, it freezes for a couple minutes (sometimes is says Not Responding, but not always). After two-five minutes it continues to operate as usual.Today I had a couple new issues crop up. When I tried to log into my computer, it gave me an error message. Unfortunately I didn't write it down. The next time I tried to log on, it worked as usual. The second issue is that a low mechanical noise began to eminate from the computer. After a couple minutes it stopped.The only thing I've tried so far is to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which came up clean.If anyone could please help me I would be really grateful!ThanksEdit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
