The problem was with the street lines. a lot of people in this area have the same problem. 1islander2 Does any one have any suggestions how I can clear up this freezing? Thank you

Preferred Solution: computer freezes at times,screen freezes

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.)

Hi all,For several months my PC has been frustratingly slow. However, I have dealt with it. Now however, when I click on "start" my PC will completely freeze, not allowing me to access anything. When closing programs, the desktop slowly scrolls back onto the screen instead of instantly appearing. I wish there was more details to share but there is none to my knowledge. I have recently ran spybot S&D and ran a virus scan but it has not helped. I have followed the instructions on the preparation post and here is the data in the DDS log. I am attaching the other log files as well. Thanks for your help in advance.

I have had this issue for awhile, it comes and goes.

I will be playing a computer game, it can be anything from world of warcraft to counter strike and occasionally the computer will freeze. As far as I can tell it will not respond to keyboard input or mouse movements, I do not hear any sounds when it freezes and the monitor will be frozen on whatever window is active at the time.

The only thing I can do at this point is restart the computer and shut down the computer. Upon doing either while the computer boots up it will freeze at random points (windows icon, log in screen, sometimes while the bios is loading).

Not sure if this makes any sense but if I shut down the computer and unplug the power supply and plug it back in then turn the computer on, it usually boots without freezing. I really doubt its an overheating problem because I do not let the computer cool down between restarts or the unplug/plug thing but I am open to all suggestions.

I have a HP Pavilion w/Windows XP Media Center Edition. Some months ago my screen started freezing in a little geometric pattern (see attached pic) at any given time for no apparent reason. It does this multiple times a day and I have to reboot using the power button. As far as I know all the programs are still open and running but who knows because I can't see anything?
I contacted HP multiple times to no avail. First they had me test the monitor by hooking my laptop up to it and leaving it on. The monitor worked fine. Then I updated all my drivers and my graphics card driver (NVidia). Then I updated my BIOS. Their last attempt was to have me do a destructive re-format of my hard drive (system recover) to reinstall everything on a clean slate. The screen still freezes.
Can anyone tell me what the problem may be? I am almost to the point of going out and buying a new graphics card just because I can't think of anything else and no one has been able to tell me what it is... Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Today I had to manually restart my computer 5-6 times and it's been like that every day. I was infected with some virus before and I got tired of trying to get rid of it(my antivirus wouldn' remove it). I decided to format the harddrive and do a clean install Vista Ultimate. That went well but now the computer freezes too many times in a day. It freezes randomly when running  IE or just when I'm trying to install something. It's a fresh install and I need to reinstall some programs I had on it before but the freezing problem just wouldn't let me. Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong?
Thank you

My computer freezes at least twice a day. Sometimes when i leave it on for quite some time, it freezes. At other times it just freezes while i'm doing some work. Just now the computer restarted by itself when i was running some programs (matlab, excel, bitcomet, zone alarm). I have to restart my computer manually everytime. I'm using Windows XP SP2, Zone Alarm Pro, BitComet, Prevx, McAfee. I've already checked my power option (hibernation disabled, never turn off monitor or hard disks and never standby). I still do not know what's wrong with it. I run Register Mechanic, Advanced System Optimiser and Ad-aware on a daily basis. Can someone please help! Thanks!!

I have a Dell Dimension 4500, 1.7 GH CPU, 680 mb RAM, 100 GB hard drives. My computer freezes up for 1-2 minutes frequently -- usually after I am gone for a short time and when I return to my project, and when I start up. I can usually release the freeze with <ctrl> <alt> <delete> (which does not always come on) and disabling "cidaemon" which then promptly comes back.

I have deleted all the programs that I think I can get by without. Some programs I cannot delete: Microsoft Works 2002, and Real Planes Flight Simulator.

I have an amd athlon 1900, and win xp pro and just recently put this computer on the internet the first time. (about a month ago) When I did that I added 512 ram for total of 1GB.
Now every time i come home and turn my computer on I have about 1 out of 4 chance that it boots up all the way in to windows fine. The rest of those times I will have the WELCOME screen with my user account icons to click. the mouse will work but the icons dont highliht with mouse over and clicking it does nothing. And sometimes I can click the account and it will say loading but freezes there. So I have had to hit the reset button up to 5 times to get it to get into windows.

Is this a common problem? do you need more information about my setup? I dont believe this to be a spyware or virus issue that's why i posted here. I do have adaware, spybot, spydoctor, AVG, and attack shield and they are all updated and check the system to be ok.
any help appreciated,

A:user account selection screen freezes 3 out of 4 times

oh also having problems being able to use safemode.
when I first turn on the pc the screen shows:

Delete=bios settings, F8=Boot Menu, F12=Network boot (the F8 boot menu only for selecting which drive to boot off of)
and i finally figured out that either F6 or F7 brings up a screen that lets you select which operating system to use. and it says at the bottom something like press F8 foradvanced windows boot options. BUT my computer always freezes on this screen. Or maybe the keyboard just always stops working. But I have never been in safemode on this computer and everyone has always told me safemode is ALWAYS F8 on startup.

(I am wanting to get into safemode to run antispyware stuff because maybe i do have some spyware. When I last updated adaware's defs it seems that they went from being like 100 days out of date to 1277 days out of date. I tried downloading the newest updates again and unistalling the program and reinstalling it and same thing)

A:Computer Freezes At Random Times

Well, here's the story. I purchased this computer last December from CyberPowerPC. It came with Windows Vista but I didn't order that. So I wiped that off and installed Windows XP Pro on it and updated it to SP2.
Now I don't know if it's XP or what but my computer has been freezing every day about 5-10 times a day. What happens is that the screen would all of a sudden show random colorful lines causing me to hard boot the computer. The thing that annoys me is that any work I have been working on is lost. I haven't really done anything about it because the bootup time was about 30-40 seconds. But now I'm fed up.

I emailed the company, but haven't got a response yet (sent Saturday)

So far I have tried :
cleaning inside the computer
lowering Hardware Acceleration
Lowering Sound Acceleration in DXDIAG

I really don't know what else to do.

Here are the specs.
AMD Athlon 64 x2 Duel Core Processor 4600+
geForce 8400 GS
1 Gig Ram
500W PSU
Windows XP Pro SP2

Any help is welcomed as well as comments/suggestions or anything else. If you need any more information or anything, please ask. Thank you for reading and hope to hear some helpful responses soon!


A:Computer Randomly Freezes about 5-10 times every day.

If you purchased the computer with Vista then they probably will not do anything because of taking Vista off the computer might have voided the warranty.

When you installed windows xp did you install the special drivers for the motherboard and windows xp like the chipset drivers, buss, network, audio, video and the others?

Hi guys,

This seems like a great site, so big thanks to all you people volunteering here.

I've had my PC gaming stationary computer for a couple of years. Last year I upgraded to an SSD harddrive, new graphics card and Windows 7 (from Vista)

It worked decent (some minor issues here and there but whatever) but now when I came back after not been using it for 3 months, it freezes at random moments. And it's up towards the point where I give up shutting it down and reeboting. I can be in the middle of a download, or browsing something on a webpage, or even just leaving it be for 2 minutes and then all of the sudden it freezes.

I have updated all the drivers, windows updates and tried the Advanced System Care which takes care of some problems (as it states) but does not help with anything to do with the freezing. I have runned some anti-virus systems on it as well. Nothing to be found.

Any suggestings of what I can do? I feel like I don't have the knowledge coming up with new things to try.

I forgot to add I run with a Gigabyte motherboard. I think I saw someone having problems with that somewhere. Could that be it? Why wouldn't the problem have occured 4 years ago?

I would appreciate any ideas, advice, suggestions or even just a greeting

Thank you so much,


A:Computer freezes at random times

Straight to the point

1, clear temprorry files using any good software . try CCleaner.

2, check for dust accumilated in the cabinet. most cases over heating of cpu may cause problems.

3, clean you ram and ram slots for any dust. and also check for heatsink on cpu.


check for any viruses

check which application is using the resources.

It will be helpfull if you can mention the complete sepc of your pc

My computer beeps once and freezes.  This can happen once and stop or it could continuously beep freezing my computer.  My computer also has problems updating windows.  More specifically any security update for microsoft .net Framework 4.  Manual installation or repair gives me the fatal error during installation message.

A:Computer freezes at times and cannot update Windows

Hi Kimaran,
Look here : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Troubleshoot-problems-with-installing-updates
However you may have more serious problems of hardware failure.Most generally the continuous beeping is indicative of a BIOS code being issued from the motherboard.
You can find more information here: http://www.pctechbytes.com/hardware/computer-beeps-continuously/
There are also other possibilities; CPU, RAM and Motherboard: http://www.memtest86.com/
You can always post back for further assistance.

Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't do anything either, so I'm forced to manually shut down the system. This has happened a couple of times today now. What should I do?

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.

My computer freezes at completely random times even when i am not currently using it. Even when the monitors have gone to sleep it will sometimes freeze and they will not wake back up. I can not do anything at all when it freezes except hold the power button until it turns off. I can not find anything that could be triggering this and am wondering if somebody knows a way to find out why it is doing this.

It could be a number of things however I would suggest looking at the hardware first and see what we find

Run Memtest to check if there is anything wrong with any of the ram sticks

download either the ISO and burn to dvd

or the exe and install on the machine

Download a hard drive utility from the Hard drive manufacturer and check your disks

Wasn't sure where to post this. I ordered my PC from CyberPower PC almost 2 years ago, and from day one its been randomly freezing, blue screen, shutting off. There doesn't seem to be a real trigger for it. Sometimes it will freeze when I leave it alone. It will freeze when i play BF3/4 on any graphics settings, after about 10 minutes of game play. It seems to be a bit random but it will always eventually freeze when I game. I know that if I leave the computer alone after it has frozen it will shut it self off and wont turn on unless i flip the switch on the power block to off and then press the power button, and then flip the switch to on and press the power button to start it up. I've contacted CyberPower PC tech support and he had me download programs to test the CPU and the GPU. Furmark and Intel Burn Test. I ran the both programs for the recommended time and it didn't cause a shut down.
When it first started happening several people thought it was overheating, which didn't make sense because i have a water cooling system. I went and bought A LOT of fans and set it all up so there was fans on every vent available. And I'm sure its correctly set up too. That didn't seem to have that much of an effect.
Recently it started acting up even more, it will freeze on me minutes after turning the computer on. No one seems to be able to figure out what the problem is.
Currently I am running memtest86. It has been running for 5 hours with only 1 pass and 0 errors. Not sure if it's su... Read more

Hello! This computer was built about a month ago, and only recently in the past two weeks, the crashes started to happen. There are no BSODs, and I was unable to obtain a dump file from the crashes, the computer simply freezes up and everything becomes unresponsive (computer screen freezes, keyboard and mouse unresponsive, sound frequency stuck in that one tone). At times, the computer does not start up at all (stuck in a boot loop), it POSTs normally with 1 beep, but restarts and gets stuck until I hard reset the computer. I ran memtest86 on the PC to check for any memory issues with the RAM, the PC passed 7 times with no errors. I've changed the settings for saving crash dump files in the advanced system settings, but the PC still does not write any dump files into "Windows\Minidump".

These are the specs of the PC:OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit
Motherboard: ASUS B150M-C D4 (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/B150M-C/)
Power Supply: Cooler Master V650 Semi Modular 80+ GOLD
GPU: ZOTAC GTX 1060 Mini
CPU: I5-6600 (not unlocked)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 2400MHz 8GB (2x4GB)

Hey all,

I was unable to get GMER to run the full scan without an error popping up halfway saying that the .exe has stopped working. I tried it twice and lost patience so I will try again later and try to make it work. For now I'm just putting this post up there to at least get something by the end of today hopefully, so I just want to point out first that my GMER log is not included. Sorry about it! If the GMER log is absolutely necessary along with Hijack and DDS logs for you guys to diagnose what is wrong with my computer, do let me know. Also, if you guys could, any advice on how to get GMER working would be appreciated. I was unclear through the instructions if I should uncheck the IAT/EAT box and check the C: drive box (the GMER tool did not warn me about rootkit activity, but I went ahead and unchecked IAT/EAT and checked C: drive anyway, assuming that the drive that is most important to scan would be C: drive).

I'm running Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro Bootcamp partition and its only recently been experiencing some problems, the most notable being that the computer freezes randomly.

Another problem I encountered is that while browsing Youtube in particular, when I click on a video, for the first 10 to 20 seconds or so, the video itself is either mostly black o... Read more

I have had this problem for the last year.

I get these blackscreens that lasts for a few seconds, sometimes 3-4, sometimes <1.
They don't seem to be triggered by anything special, as it happens both when inside games and outside games. When the blackscreen is over i get this message "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version xxx.xx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
Sometimes the hud gets messed up ingame and i have to restart it again.

Its different when i play Counter Strike though. The game just freezes and i have to tab out and in again and it will work.
Very rarely (like a few times a year) the computer will just freeze and i have to choke-reboot it.

I'm not sure exactly when it started, but around that time i got a new motherboard and CPU.
The parts in the computer that are quite old are one of the HDDs, 2/4 RAM-sticks and the PSU.

I have attached the SF files to the post.

Help appreciated

I'm using XP Home Edition 2002, SP3.

I don't know why, but this happens way too often and I'm really fed up with it. I figured reformatting would do the trick, but the problem is WORSE somehow.

*Whenever I use Firefox, sometimes I get unresponsive scripts which coincides with the computer freezing in general
*Whenever I start up Windows or log off, it takes MINUTES to do so (usually it takes like 30 seconds to one minute max.)

I'm thinking it might be a registry error/problem, since I had to previously system restore to correct such a problem. I've already done virus scans too, and nothing pops up.

Any help is appreciated, and please let me know if you need more information! I will provide it on request, as long as I know how to. Thanks!

A:Computer is extremely unresponsive and lags/freezes at times!

If you have formatted the partition...and you have continuing problems...I would think that a check of the hard drive, using the appropriate hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic...would be in order.

I recently changed the cabinet of my computer and since then I've been getting freezes and BSODS, when it freezes it just gets stuck at whatever I'm doing and makes a buzzing noise through the speakers. I haven't had time to read the error codes when I get the BSODS, it reboots to fast.

The freezes/BSODS appear to happen more frequently when gaming, but it also occurs when I'm just browsing.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and have tried reinstalling it but it didn't help. My computer is quite old, around 2007 I guess.

I'm having this problem since the parts for my pc came in. First with Windows 8.1 and now with 7 aswell. I ran CPU and memory tests like prime95, Memtest86 and Seatools for the HDD/SSD without any luck.

Usually happens when I'm playing, it can happen as soon as I open the game, a few minutes in, sometimes I can even play for 3 or 4 days without problems. There was this one time when it froze while I was using chrome but that was the only time that it didn't happen while playing.

With Windows 8.1 the computer just froze, no BSOD, I started getting BSOD when I installed Windows 7. The computer mostly freezes right now and I haven't encountered BSOD until today.

I ran driver verifier like a month ago but I couldn't get a BSOD after 36 hours. Today I tried driver verifier again and got a BSOD at boot 2 times and a freeze while playing.

My specs:
Motherboard: Asrock Z75 Pro3
CPU: Intel i7 3770
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600mhz
PSU: Corsair TX850
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Graphics: I'm using my processor as graphics for now

For now I disabled Turbo Boost in my BIOS settings. I also ran a program called Driver Reviver to check the drivers and it tells me that there's a quite a few outdated drivers, but I don't know if can really trust this program.

Also I ran the command to check Window's integrity and it says that it found some errors that it couldn't repair, I tried to repair windows with the same ISO I used for the installation but it keeps telling me that it's n... Read more

Hello. I bought a new computer and it freezes at random times. It happens 1-5 times / day and it's really annonying. It does not reboot, there is no BSOD, it just freezes.

Before reinstalling windows, it used to show some BSOD. I got just 1 BSOD after reinstalling windows. I attached some logs.

The 2 USB ports from the front of my case don't work as they are supposed to. I have to move stuff to make them work. I use the USB ports from the back of my pc case for that reason.

Hi, a few questions

Can anyone help me find out why my pc keeps crashing? I'm not sure what info to provide other than hardware specs and the fact that it always crashes when I play Tibianic.org's custom Tibia client... It even does it sometimes when I'm just web browsing, listening to music, messing with files.. It will lock up and give me a green screen full of bars. Or the monitor goes to sleep and system locks up, I used to be able to put it in hibernate and bring it out of its locked up state but not anymore, button doesn't respond.

Also, if I don't wait at login screen for 20 seconds it will freeze at the desktop after I log in and computer completley locks up

Thirdly, Upon boot-up, there is an invalid path for vista which I had on a partition which I am not sure how to get rid of.

Computer is about 4 years old and put together myself (been crashing since soon after I put it together but not any where near as often as now)

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have a 17' Samsung 700Z laptop about two years old. Lately, it has been freezing up. I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or a driver issue or something else. It usually freezes when I am gaming but sometimes freezes when I'm using Firefox as well. Freezes, no mouse movement, audio glitches out and the only fix is to restart it. It will freeze within ten minutes again though.

For the past few weeks, about 1/2 hour after booting my computer up in the morning, whatever program I'm using at the moment will stop responding. If I continue to try to get it to respond, its screen will dim and I get the message "Not responding". The disk activity light goes on 100%. To a certain extent I can still get to other programs that are already running, but I can't open new ones. Usually, if I just sit and wait, after about 30-60 sec everything will be ok again; other times nothing will happen for several minutes after which I'll get a BSOD with the message "Windows was shut down..." and
Collecting data for crash dump ...
Initializing disk for crash dump ...

Because of this, I've been running Process Explorer. When the problem occurs I can switch to it if it's on the second screen of my dual-screen system. When I do so, almost everything seems normal:
CPU 1.5%
System Commit 3.46 GB
Physical Memory 3.0 GB
I/0 2 kB
Network 400 B
Disk 0 kB
The abnormal indication is that the disk shows 0 kB even though the disk activity indicator is on 100% of the time. The list of processes shows Avast (anti-virus program) and System to have overwhelmingly the largest I/O Read Bytes, but this doesn't seem abnormal.
