Preferred Solution: My laptop keeps Freezing stuck..

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.)

I reinstalled Windows 7 64-bit a couple days ago, and I inserted a disc into the drive recently, but now the drive won't open through anything and freezes anything and everything that touches it(Device Manager, Windows Explorer, Avira, Safe Mode even is affected)

Is there some way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong area.

Edit: It finally let me access it, but I still don't know what was/is wrong...

Hi all,

This is my first post and I am so thankful I found this forum!
My laptop, in the past 2-3 days, has been freezing up. I have not downloaded anything in that timeframe.
At first it was when there was no activity for a while and the screen would just go black and I would have to manually restart the pc. Now, the freezing is more regular.and it freezes without going black but still I have to manually restart. I have F-Secure virus, updated, and during a full scan it freezes. I downloaded Malwarebytes and it also freezes in full scan.
I believe they are both freezing in the same spot: c:windows/winsxs/x86_security-malware-windows-defender...
I tried to target scan just that area and it freezes.

I did a quick scan with Malwarebytes and this is what it found:

Since last Monday, my laptop's been through its fourth at Knowhow's facilities. I was anxious to play games like Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Gmod again, but after a minute or two of gameplay, they would both freeze. From there the screen would turn black, turn back on at full brightness, and allow me to play for a few seconds before looping the process again. The only way I could stop this was by 'Alt-F4'-ing my way out of the game, which would allow me to change my brightness.

At first, I tried updating the drivers as that could have helped, though, instead, made no difference. From there, I proceeded to do an 'express' uninstall of the drivers and anything else associated, restarted, installed the driver only, and restarted again. No success. I even tried Red Faction: Guerilla, only to be met with the same results. Weirdly, though, 2D games like Hexcells, Prison Architect and Speedrunners run flawlessly!

I'm using the 14.12 Omega drivers, according to the Raptr app.

I just got my computer last week, and for some reason, screen goes black and nothing happens after i log off or switch user...then I have to restart computer to start it back up. Screen switch light still blue, so it doesnt sleep, and computer blue light stays on ( no blinking sleep indicator) so it just doesnt do anything after I log/switch. I already updated bios and graphics card which is nvidia 9500gs.
Any ideas?

A:Screen Going black- freezing or stuck when logging off/switching users

Slow shutdown/User log off can be a result of little ram, or frag. This was also a commom issue even with 4GB of ram prior to SP1.

Try defragging.

Are you using reg cleaners, or using any media extenders? (i.e., Xbox)

If it is a desktop you may want to see If it is using "Away mode", or "prevent idling to sleep" mode (this is common for extenders).

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Not satisfied with the Dell and Dell repair services.

I posted this in wrong forum, in "security". So, I am re-posting it here.
Hello, I would appreciate help fixing my PC. System: Toshiba C75D-B7300, Windows 8.1. For a few weeks the pc was running slow. It would freeze frequently. Initially the mouse would be stuck for a while and then resume. It was like every keystroke took several
minutes to execute. Then it started freezing to the point where i had to restart to get out of it. Then it became so frequent that it became impossible to use the PC. The problem existed both in normal mode and in safe mode.

I have not installed any new programs before this began. I tried restoring to previous date, but it said "failed".
So, I looked up solutions on line and tried them. scannow, chkdsk, etc. (scheduled at restart) The results showed "errors were found, some errors could not be fixed". Every method I found on line I tried. After one of the methods, and I believe
it was some version of scannow.exe  with several alphanumeric /. After running that, the PC is stuck in a "automatic repair loop". The PC has been on for two days and I can see the windows go through  "preparing to do automatic repair",

Hello
My laptop is Dell Inspiron 14 N4050.
The problem is why it stucks in BIOS and cannot go to windows after I tried installing Windows 10 last time. That time the screen showed "there is not complete drivers inside". After that when I shut down forcefully and turn it on back the screen appeared in blue color and saying please call technician.
 
These happened after I send my laptop to a Computer shop for reformat. Then backed home I downloaded the new Windows 10 OS and after completed the laptop cannot be used. I think maybe the shop that I send my laptop do not put all the drivers. and the result my laptop cannot be upgraded and now cannot use anymore. many files located inside and I cannot take them back. so sad. please help me.

A:WHY MY LAPTOP STUCK

First thing to do is run an extended hard drive diagnostic - the root of all the problems could be a bad drive.
F12 at powerup.
This system doesn't have official support for anything newer than Windows 8 -- though some have reported 10 will install and run (the audio is the part where the drivers usually fail).

Try bringing up the Advanced Startup Options by tapping F8 as soon as the laptop is turned on.

Then highlight "Last known good configuration" and press <Enter>

Hopefully that will get you into Windows but it won't solve the update problem.

Boot into Win7, download, install, update and run full scans with your AV, Malwarebytes
and SUPERAntiSpyware.

If prob persists run a few Startup Repairs with reboots, report back results.

Then if you can remain booted work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 especially establishing a Clean Boot, checking logs for repeat errors, tapping the System resources given, testing hardware - you'll have it resolved if you complete them all since if nothing else works it shows how to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is much superior to the bloated corrupt Acer preinstall which smothers Win7.

Hi,
 
I'm struggling with this, hope you guys can help.
 
Sometimes when I go to Start -> Power -> Shut down, it displays the "Shutting down..." window, then the screen goes black, but the laptop won't turn off completely. That is, the WiFi, Bluetooth and Power (light bulb) indicators are still on (and the battery indicator too if plugged), and I have to force (power button long press) the laptop to shut down. I can also turn off the WiFi and Bluetooth devices using the keyboard at this stage (with FN button). And if I keep the laptop this way long enough (unplugged), my battery will be completely drained.
 
I say sometimes because this seems to just happen randomly. I could shut down my laptop at some point and it will turn off just fine, but a few hours later when I shut it down again it will get stuck.
 
I googled and tried everything I could come up with but nothing seems to work. I tried 1) taking the laptop apart, disconnecting and reconnecting literally everything I could see, 2) cleaning my laptop, 3) resetting Windows and BIOS to factory settings, 4) replacing my SSD and installing Windows from scratch, and 5) formatting my HDD. Googling for solutions I mostly found people suggesting disabling Fast Boot so obviously I did that too.

Same happens when booting to last known good configuration and safe mode. On a couple of scandisks it repaired about 20 files which I think were in the prefetch folder.

When I run the XP recovery console it asks for the administrator password then it just leaves me at the command prompt - is it not meant to do something then?

I inserted the battery back in one day and I can't seem to remove it now. The latch is all the way to the left when the laptop is upside down where the opening of the laptop is facing me. Is it supposed to be on the left or right? The latch seems stuck and I can't move it to the right.  helpp meeeecheers.

A:Laptop's Battery seems to be stuck

Hi Tycobb,    I found your post because I just had the exact same problem, with the same computer.  The latch for the battery should be all the way to the right when the battery is plugged in.  You'll know if it's in the right place because you'll see an image of a battery under the latch.  I honestly can't give you a technical answer on this, however, I was just messing around, and I got a hold of a membership card for a store....the same type of card you'd "key" a door with.  Anyway, try and pry out the top part of the battery outward.  Be very gentle and careful.  I was worried I would break it, but once I got a good grip, the battery just popped out and the spring-loaded latch went to its' correct place.  I only did this because I have a warranty, and I was willing to take a chance.  Maybe someone else will have a better idea, but this one worked for me. Good luck! Max

My cpu seems so sluggish. It really feels like 798MHz. I rate 1.6 because of my CPU
CPU: 1.6
Memory: 4.1
Graphics: 3.8
Gaming Graphics: 3.7
Harddisk: 4.4

So I don't get what's going on. Could it be a chipset issue? I can't find any kind of Sis drivers for this thing.

I found CPUID here are some results:
Processor 1... Read more

A:Laptop stuck @ 798MHz..

One thing to note is my FRAME RATE NEVER goes below 10fps. This is really, odd. If I was lagging really bad it should go well below 10fps... This was tested on L4D, HL2, and HL2 EP2. Red Orchestra seems to play perfectly on medium @ 800x600 resolution..

I was going to install Omega drivers but I can't find any for Windows 7.... I don't want to get a new laptop yet, but when my job requires me to use one I'll just buy a modern laptop that works..

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Windows Vista

Yesterday I tried to turn off my laptop, but it got stuck in the "logging off" process.
I turned off manually and turned it on again, but when it starts it says Resuming windows,
and goes back to the logging off stage...
Please advice.
Thanks!

That problem was addressed at this forum and the poster did get a fix. Worth a try I suppose.

Hi. I apologize as this is going to be a long post. So, here goes-I bought my Inspiron mini early in 2013. I don't use it much..been using it on and off last two years. The laptop got a bit slow but it dint bother me. Later I updated it to windows 10 thinking it might speed it up but no use. Two days ago, I reset my laptop and chose " Keep my files" option but the reset dint happen. Then I chose the " remove everything option" with "remove everything and clean the drive" option and it resetted. Then I got a page with choose an option written with three options-1. Continue with Windows 102. Troubleshoot3. Restart my PCI chose the first option and it restarted. The Dell logo came and after that it's blank screen! I shut it down and switched it on again and it's the same thing!! It's been two days..  I tried everything in the troubleshooting option too but no result!  Can anyone help me out? Please?

I have a sony laptop that will get stuck in hibernation. Hitting the power button does nothing. If I hold down the power button it will start fine. Removing the battery and pluging it back in also works. Also the fan stays on when in Hibernation. It almost seems as though the laptop never goes into hibernation all the way. This results in a battery drain.

I've tried the following to resolve the issue
1. Checked power settings, they seem to be normal.
2. Took battery out and held the power button for 30 seconds.
3. Left battery out for several mins.
4. Same thing happens when plugged in with AC adapter without battery

Sony does have a power manager, but it seems to not be default, windows power manager is running. Is there anything else I can check to see why this is happening? Thanks.

I inserted a software CD for a wireles HP printer using the CD/DVD tray and when I opened the tray to take the CD out the CD did not come out and is stuck inside my computer.  The tray opens and closes normally but the CD is stuck inside.  How did I get the CD out of my computer?

A:CD stuck inside my laptop

that depends on what kind of notebook you have, a model number and serial number whould be helpfull, alot of the new drives are held in by 1 screw which is on the bottom of the notebook. if you slide the drive out maybe you can get the disk.sherwin1986 wrote:I inserted a software CD for a wireles HP printer using the CD/DVD tray and when I opened the tray to take the CD out the CD did not come out and is stuck inside my computer.  The tray opens and closes normally but the CD is stuck inside.  How did I get the CD out of my computer?

Unfortunately I have a work laptop I have to use. I'm running Win7 to write this but I had a few BSODs and it's put me off. Anyway, I can't find the original install files to blank everything and start again (rosettaStone language pack discs & excel)

I've already upgraded the HDD. RAM is 2GB, CPU is dual ~2gb. Win7 experience is 2.2. I've also used TuneUp to check nothing I don't need is running on startup. I've defragged including the pagefile.

As you can imagine XP has got bogged down. I'm running TuneUpUtils and this has definitely improved things a lot but it's such a shock to go back to compared to fairly fresh install of Win7.

It turns out that this laptop isn't actually compatible with win7 and Dell offer NO drivers for it. All the drivers are from intel and microsoft. I guess I shouldn't risk it any more with this laptop on Win7.

I guess what I want to understand is why a reinstall every year or so has to be the only way with everything... just to hard to go the other way...
