PC Freezes Completely after New Build

Q: PC Freezes Completely after New Build

Just completed a new build with the below components and am having a serious issue that prevents me from doing anything.

MoBo: Z390 Aorus Ultra
CPU: Intel Core i9 9900k
GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz C16
HDD: Samsung 970 Evo SSD m.2
PSU: EVGA 600W
OS: Windows 10 Pro

If I let the computer sit and idle, nothing happens. If I move the mouse too much or turn on Netflix, it completely freezes and doesnt come back.

What I've done:
1) updated Drivers
2) cleared temp files
3) ran a memory check
4) adjusted virtual memory
5) ran a system file check
6) ran a HDD check
7) attempted to enable XMP profile, PC failed to boot
8) pulled the GPU and ran directly from the MoBo
9) tried running with only 2 RAM sticks in the A1 & B1 slots
10) pulled 600w PSU, used 750w from previous build (no change)
11) removed CPU to ensure all was seated well, cleaned up thermal paste and reapplied

I tried 1-6 based of an internet search of the issue

I tried #7 based off the bench test conducted. Bench test said the RAM was underperforming and that I should enable the XMP profile.. I enabled the preset profile and the computer gave me a failed to boot error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, please advise if you need more info, screen shots, etc.

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.)

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.

Hello Everyone:
I installed win7_x64 7068 in dual boot as the second operating system to Vista 64. It runs sweet, found some obscure drivers (like USB to serial),works with office, my AV and even does a good job with Fallout3.
It wound shut down though, it hangs at "shutting down" and the cursor just spins there, until I pull the plug, it boots back without any complaint, so I'm figuring it's a situation, and not a flaw.
Any ideas?

Hey everyone so I just built a new desktop and I've been getting blue screens every so often.

I first put Windows 10 on it, it started blue screening about three hours afterwards giving errors like page fault in non paged area, kernel data in page error etc. I figured it was the drivers so I reinstalled all the latest drivers and it worked for a bit then still blue screened. The most common being the apge fault in non paged area.

At that point, I decided to reinstall Windows completely and got Win 7. Again after about 3 hours I started to get blue screens. Less frequently than on W10 but still there. I ran memtest86+ because I thought it could be the RAM but it had no errors after 7 passes. Similarly, chkdsk showed no issues with my SSD. I find this weird because Burnintest is saying my SSD and RAM have some issues. I also ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and it didn't find anything wrong with my memory. I'm not sure what it could be at this point. I re-seated the RAM and GFX and checked all the SATA cables but still nothing.

I've attached the zip file with minidump information. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hello all,

I am having quite a few problems with my new build (see specs below).

It started shortly after my first install of Windows 7 64-bit. I encountered frequent and random blue screens, (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL mainly). I changed a couple of settings in my BIOS:

DRAM voltage to 1.5 instead of AUTO.
Performance enhance to STANDARD instead of TURBO.

I was then able to run my computer for a solid 10 hours without a single problem (all tasks, including web browsing, watching videos and installing and using Adobe and iTunes software), but this morning I switched it on only to be greeted by a blue screen before my Windows log-in. As it stands now, 9 times out of 10 I can't make it into Windows but when I can, I'm only there for about 3 minutes before another blue screen gets me. For the record, all drivers are up to date and my motherboard is successfully flashed to the latest version.

The blue screens seem to always point to ntoskrnl.exe as the culprit and I'm more certain that the problem is a hardware one rather than a driver conflict as it seems to happen whether I have just Windows 7 installed or a bunch of other programs.

I'm wondering if I have incorrect settings in my BIOS for memory and other voltages. I also checked my motherboards Qualified Vendor List for memory support and noticed my RAM isn't on there; could this be a glaringly obvious problem I overlooked? I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to thi... Read more

A:BSoD - new build, completely baffled!

I managed to get into Windows this morning but after a while I crashed again. Here are two more dump files; the latest contains something to do with fltmgr.sys that I haven't noticed before. I have also noticed that after a BSoD, one of my hard drives clicks once in the POST screen as it restarts. Does this sound like it could be a HDD issue? It doesn't seem to do this on a manual restart. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, first off sorry if this is in the wrong section.

My computer has been freezing for a good month now and I am completely lost with what to do. I can be doing anything and it will randomly freeze locking up my whole system forcing me to hard restart. When it does freeze the fans and everything look like they're running normal. It used to just be when I would idle and game but now it's really only frequent in games such as Dota 2. What I have done so far is check the temperatures, which are all cool. I have swapped out the memory for another pair, I have tries multiple hdd's, updated bios, changed graphics cards, and formatted. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!




Strip down your system to run only the bare essentials: one RAM module, the CPU, motherboard, one hard disk, one graphics card (or use onboard graphics if you have it), keyboard, mouse, and one monitor. See how the system behaves. If it is stable, add one piece of hardware back at a time until you get freezes again. Take notes of what hardware you add and how the system responds to the hardware changes.

Also, check all connections and make sure all cards are properly and firmly seated in their slots. A piece of hardware may be loose within the system due to being bumped or jostled through daily use. If unsure, remove everything but the CPU and heatsink, and then replace hardware one by one by gently but firmly placing the hardware back into the system.

As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.

I installed Win7 Pro x64 on my PC Monday evening.
The computer is physically unchanged from when Vista Business 32bit was running on it with which it was absolutely stable.

The problem is that every 1 hour or so the system completely stops forcing me to manually reboot it. It does not give any error it just stops. No minidump is written. All diagnostics show no apparent error, the only thing Windows registers is that it was shut down incorrectly.

I updated Intel chipset drivers (This one), audio drivers from the Realtek homepage, ethernet drivers from the Realtek homepage and through Windows Update and installed the newest Nvidia drivers (191.07).

The problem occurs mostly during browsing but that might just be because I'm browsing most of the time. It happened both with Opera 10.01 and the newest Chrome. The problem began quite soon after installation before I had installed any software except for Opera (and maybe Acrobat Reader) and before I had updated any drivers.

I'm really out of ideas now
I read all the other threads about similar problems but none gave a solution that I haven't already tried (updating drivers).


[Edit:]
Changing the Energy Management setting to High Performance let's the system run stable for a week now.

Can you please describe this in higher detail?

Can you move the mouse at all or does that freeze too? If you leave it alone, does it come back to responsiveness after a minute or so? Any detail you can think of will help us in this situation.

My computer is freezing completely after a while, no mouse no ctrl-alt-del, and nothing. Usually 1 hour after turn on, it'll freeze. If I restart it it'll more and more often after every restart. My CPU and Motheboard temperatures are below normal, so it's not that. If i restart it, it restarts immediately. I have already cleared my whole hard drive and re-installed my OS, the problem is still there. All the drivers and necessary software is installed. I'm running on windows Vista sp2 32 bit and using Norton Internet Security and Norton Utilities. I already cleared my registry, defragmented, and all the other things.

Hi there people, don't know if this is the right section of the forum for this thread. But since i've got no idea what the hell is happening, i figured this should do it. My computer completely stops! It freezes and nothing works. My mouse don't work i can't even turn my NUM LOCK on/off. Also i hear a strange noise (not in the cpu, but in my headphones) after that happens. The only thing i can do is turn off my computer. But one thing i've noticed is that after this happens, when i try to turn my pc on again, it doesn't make that *bip* from the boot. So i have to turn it off and on again, and when it boots for the first time, after this event, it freezes again while booting... So i turn it off/on again, and it works ok. At least for a while Please guys, i need help! My specs are: Asus P8H61, I5-2300, Radeon HD 5670, 2x4gb Kingstom. Sorry for bad english

My computer will be running along fine, then with seeming randomness it will stop completely. The mouse will stop, programs stop, everything but the power button is unresponsive. If my computer is making a sound before it stops it will make a sound as though repeating the same bit of sound through the speakers in an infinite loop. The first time it happened I was playing Supreme Commander, but as it has happened repeatedly without that game running, don't know if that is relevant.

I Have already backed up all my important data and have completely reinstalled windows from a restore disk, and that didn't help, which makes me wonder whether this isn't a hardware problem. I have run windows memory diagnostic with no faults found. I have run Scandisk with out error as well.

I managed to copy the crash dump before it froze on me last time, and ran it(on a different computer) through windows debuging tool with the following result, which I haven't the know-how to decipher:

(the following is copied from a less tech orientated forum I use, however, is still what's happening)

Like, completely unresponsive.

I'll be doing anything and it will freeze (note: not BSOD). I originally put this down to my video card overheating (as it usually occurred whilst gaming, because of it's crappy fan), and only occurred once every so often.

However, when I moved houses first time I noticed when viewing a folder with lots of thumbnails that it froze instantly (as it was loading the thumbs). So I put it down to hard drive or RAM (not knowing where the thumbs were stored in memory [swap or physical]). So I pulled out the 256 stick I had in and played WoW on 512 for 1-2hours or so to try and get it to crash, but didn't. (WoW is painful with only 512 ram though)

I THEN put it down to the stick of ram being faulty (it was oooold). So I put in a different 256 stick, and after moving the second time, it began happening again.

(ugh god I'm confused now)

Bought a 1gb stick and replaced the 256 with it. Happened again, removed the 512, happened again. It's now gotten to the point where on a fairly warm day, it will crash 3-5 times/day (when WoW is open, at which point I usually don't bother again).

I've checked the event viewer in admin tools but absolutely nothing is there.

Should be noted that I currently lack a chassis fan, and two RAM slots.

Ok, so yesterday I was installing VLC player to my computer. However it may have been a virus and the computer froze after installing (that or because of other factors).

When I booted the computer back on it froze right on the first screen of boot up when it says press F12/del to enter bios. I cannot access bios as it completely freezes.

After this I took the hard-drive off the computer, and it still freezes, so I am not so sure if this was a virus after all. Perhaps the mother board has gone bad?

Any ideas how to fix this?

Also the keyboard lights are completely off, other than one flash when scanning. All other divices do work, like mouse etc (though not much you can do with them.).

Hi, I have been searching to a solution to a mouse problem I've been having for over a week, with no luck. Basically, I have a custom built Acer, the model number for the motherboard and case is ASE380-UD421A, the processor is an AMD Athlon 64x2. So anyway, this computer was running fine for over a year running XP and latest service packs and updates, when suddenly the mouse starts to freeze. This is a basic cheap USB mouse I was using when this happened. Moving the mouse around, for just a second after a clean restart would move the pointer for about an inch and than the pointer would completely freeze, (The mouse would not function at all, so this is not just about a frozen pointer). So if I unplug the mouse from the USB and plug it right back in, it would move maybe half an inch or so and completely freeze again, over and over. I have a USB to PS/2 converter for my mouse, so this was the first fix I tried, and after a restart this seemed to work for a minute or so but than the pointer started jumping around all crazy and opening programs from the start menu. To be clear, the mouse only acted crazy when I moved it, like moving it upward would repeatedly left click and move it to the left super fast, for example. So after a few minutes of moving all crazy, the pointer would again freeze.

Googling this problem, the next step I tried was a basic system restore, I went back a few days and still had the problem, so then I restored it back over a month ago, and still had th... Read more

Sometimes, out of the blue while playing a game, my computer decides to completly freeze on me. My music stops playing, everything is froze, even my mouse won't move. I have a fairly new computer, about 6 months old, and wondering why it would be doing this. The only game it seems to do it in is flash based, so I was thinking that might be the problem.

Could the problem be that I got a different kind of RAM then what came with the computer? It's an Alienware computer, so if there is a problem in the hardware side I would hope this could be the only thing wrong with it.

So, what other info do you guys need to see, I am completly stumped as to how to fix this problem.

A:Computer Freezes Completely

Hi,

You reallly need to list your specs including motherboard, cpu, video card, brand name and wattage of your power supply, drives....etc. etc. etc....you get the picture.

In the meantime, I would suggest that you monitor and list your temps for at-rest and under-stress usage. Another crucial area is that you need to check your voltages for this computer. Most modern day motherboards (since we don't know what you have, can't tell) have a program that will tell these readings. However, if yours does not, here are a couple of free programs that will help.

Ctrl-alt-delete, doesn't work, nothing...I have to manually reboot by turning off the power. I have run Spyware Doctor and the results are random, recently it identified several problems and threats that it categorized as high and i believe one was a trogan.pidief or something. i wish i had more detail but the problem is when i tried to fix the issues the computer froze. Now, I can't get through a full spyware doctor scan again -- it just freezes before it identifies any problems so i can't say what the exact problem was. i have also run malwarebytes' anti-malware but it does not find anything.Here is my hijackthisl log.

Help! I have an HP G62x (from Costco) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit that randomly freezes completely. Intel Core i3-370M + Intel HDGraphics, 4GB DDR3 Memory, 500GB Hard Drive.
When I say completely I mean nothing works, it does not respond to anything.... mouse, touchpad, Escape key or Control/Alt/Delete, etc. I have to force a shutdown.
And when I say randomly, I mean it can be while working online, or simply at startup, or after just walking away from it and it's showing the desktop, or when the screensaver mode has kicked in, or when playing music... Who Knows! Not in any one situation.
It's into it's second year of the warranty and Costco tech support is asking me to do an OS reinstall but I'd like to avoid that. Costco's 'Concierge Tech Support' along with HP via conference calls, have run me through the 'Usual' time-killing basics of testing.... all with no clues to the problem. It seemed as if they were ready to do the Reinstall from the beginning... and still are. Seems there is now no other 'Step 2' with them aside from the Reinstall of the OS. To be honest, it kinda sounds like a pattern they follow with an old familiar problem. And apparently it will take several weeks for them to send it back and there's a probability that nothing really gets 'changed' or replaced if they can't find a problem. Of course, this just gets me closer to the end of my warranty period (I also have to leave t... Read more

I have a 2-day old Dell Studio 1555 that randomly freezes 10-30 min after startup. It doesn't matter if the computer is idle or if it's being used... it just freezes. Dell has been completely useless in helping me figure it out. I've run all of the diagnostics and they're all coming out clean. I've even reinstalled windows.

I'm wondering if it would help to reformat the drive and then reinstall windows again. The first time I didn't reinstall the drive.

Anyone have any ideas? Also, it's been a long time (almost 10 years) since I did this kind of stuff, so I'm assuming that I can't just type "format c:" from the command line anymore. Any help?

Hi.

You probably have too much, what I refer to as "junk" running with Windows. Or maybe it needs better drivers.

Type system information in the start menu search box. Hit enter. Ctrl+s on the screen that opens.

Rar or zip the file then attach to a post using the paperclip. I'll have a look.

When I boot my Win 7 machine and logon the desktop loads just fine, but when I click on the start button it freezes and doesn't come back - I can't click on anything.

I think I've managed to narrow it down to being a problem with the DHCP service by disabling all services in msconfig and reenabling each one in turn. Everything was fine until I enabled the DHCP service - even starting manually after it has booted caused the issue to come back.

I'm stuck as to where to go from here though - any suggestions?

I tried to look for that dmp file but didn't find it.

I'm lost here. I've updated all the drivers I can think of, temperatures are fine, BIOS updated to the latest a month ago, no antivirus or spyware that I can find.. And interestingly, this crashing doesn't happen during things that require intense amounts of power like gaming or recording audio. Instead, I usually get it when I have plenty of browsers open or when using skype. I ran memtest86+ and windows memory diagnostics too and they came out with nothing.

Oh yes, there is one more thing: my firewire audio interface has started to jump out of sync for a second every now and then, which is something that didn't happen before.

The sync problem started when I added a new cpu and gpu, but the system didn't crash all the time, that habit was formed a bit later.

If anyone can give any pointers of what I could try next I'd be more than happy.

Thank you in advance!

Okay well, to put it shortly, I'm not too sure what to do with this issue I have. I recently upgraded both my motherboard to an Asus M5a99FX PRO R2.0 and my CPU to an AMD FX 8350 and I've been experiencing some complete freezes playing games like Battlefield 4, Shadow Warrior and Skyrim. In my old build (with a Gigabyte 880GM-USB3L and a Phenom II x4 955BE) the same games would perform okay and I never really experienced any crashes or freezes.

The problem now is that at what are apparently random intervals no longer than 15 minutes during gaming my cpmputer will completely freeze, audio stops, I cannot open the task manager and I even tried toggling Caps Lock and the LED on my keyboard wouldn't toggle. I would leave it stuck there for a couple of minute but nothing would happen, forcing me to hard reset the system.

I can use the computer for regular browsing and video streaming (I think I can alsop play some older games without freezing) without freezes too, which is kind of odd.

My PC specs would be:
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bitMobo: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0CPU: AMD FX-8350 (not overclocked)GPU: Nvidia GTX 660Ti GC 3GB (not overclocked either)Memory: 2 modules of some 4GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 RX 650W
HDD: Seagate ST2000DM001 (2TB)

Ever since I got this new computer, it freezes up at random. Everything just stops: mouse pointer doesn't move anymore, video freezes,.. it's like I made a screenshot and am viewing it in fullscreen..

The first crash I can remember is when I was installing World of Warcraft, I didn't think much of it at that time. Currently, these crashes happen more often and what annoys me the most, at completely irregular times. They have happened to me when I:

- Started up my system and I got to the desktop
- Started up my system and left it idle for a few minutes
- Was browsing the web using Opera
- Was editing video using Sony Vegas (Crashes seem to happen a lot while using this program, but they are still irregular)
- Chatting with friends on Xfire
- Starting up WoW
- Been playing WoW for a few hours
- ..

I don't get a warning or anything, my computer can be running smooth and just lock up 2 secs later. Something that also is worth mentioning, is the fact that sometimes I hear a weird sound coming from my speakers when it happens, this may be caused by the fact that it freezes while playing some sort of media file, I'm not sure. It doesn't happen all the time tho.

I don't seem to find anything in even log tho I'm not an expert in that area.
I don't get any type of error message whatsoever, which made it hard for me to look for a solution. usually I figure this stuff out based on error codes and stuff but no luck now.

Using the internal I can get into the BIOS with the keyboard, and the keyboard works fine there. When Windows XP boots up, the mouse works fine, I can open/close programs, etc. However, as soon as I press a key on the keyboard, any key at all, the whole system freezes. Nothing happens at all.

Using a USB Keyboard, the computer works just fine.

Any ideas? I've never seen anything like this before ever.

I got a Sony Vaio that likes to freeze up within roughly 10-15 minutes of using it, I've been able to install Malwarebytes and Avast, as the complainant thinks it's a virus because it started happening a week ago. Whenever I run Malwarebytes, or Avast, it locks up completely. I tried diagnostics on the hard drive, and it did't find anything other than I believe it was telling me I should do a defrag, Computer freezes during analyzing process of defrag. It would also freeze during "boot-time scan" from Avast. And 7 out of 10 times if it was running decent and I need to properly shut down or restart, it will freeze on shutting down splash screen. Windows is up to date. I found a forum stating to update the SATA drivers, did that and now it just runs sluggish and eventually creates a snowball effect to where I have no choice but to force shut down. It will do all these things in Safe Mode as well.

I know similar problems have been reported on this forum and all over the web, but still I would like to share my experience and hear others' opinions about it, as in this case, maybe the problem starts from the NIC.



System:

MB: ASUS M5A97 R2.0
CPU: AMD FX 4100 Quad Core 3.60 GHz
RAM: 8 GB (2x4GB) 1866MHz
GRAPHICS: ATI Radeon 4850 HD
HD: 2 TB
NIC: (Integrated) Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller


OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit



The problem:

Computer becomes completely unresponsive; no BSOD, no error dialogs nor any sign of computer being informed about it's own unresponsiveness, it simply won't do anything and won't obey to any keyboard command. The only option is hard reset, after which everything works fine before next freeze.

Time between log-on and freeze varies.

I don't know how to describe the problem more clearly, please ask if anything is unclear.



The story:

I built this computer about a month ago. Very soon, I started to come up to abovely described problem 2 or 3 times a day.

At first I assumed it had something to do with watching videos online with Google Chrome as several times the crash coincided with youtube or similar websites running on one of the tabs. I also uninstalled Internet Download Manager as some would complain it was crashing their browsers (but obviusly that's a different problem and has something to do with its broswer integration feature, which I had disabled anyway).

Hello users of the Seven Forums!

About one year ago I've got this new PC, and I've never had any problems with shutting it down, but my PC decided it was about time to show some weird failure in completely turning off.

Steps I take when shutting down:

Start > Shut down > *Background programs close* > I leave my PC, to come back on a frozen screen
*Shutting down*, with the circle not even turning around anymore.

So I'm a little bit of a noob when it comes to the more technical aspects of the PC. I do know most of the basics, and I've scoured the internet last night, trying to get in to the subject. So I found out you may have good use for the events when this happened. So, I made some screenshots of the events that happened around the time I shut down my pc the last 3 days. I'm not sure, but I think only the last three days it didn't work.

Shut-down 1, Yesterday:
The most recent occurance of the problem.
Warning: WLAN-AutoConfig 4001
Warning: User Profile Service 1530 (Part 1)
Warning: User Profile Service 1530 (Part 2)

Shut-down 2, 3/Jul/14:
No errors, I think it actually didn't freeze now I think of it.

Shut-down 2, 2/Jul/14:
I think this was the first time this occured.
Warning: WLAN-AutoConfig 4001
Error: HAL 12

Looking back further in my event log, the WLAN warning shows up every single time I shut down my PC, so it doesn't seem to cause the problem. Have I overlooked something? Do I need to provide more information?

First of all, this is not a new problem, but one that I experienced consistently since I installed w7 x64 on my new barebones laptop in 2010. My other laptop is sent for repair so I thought I might revisit this laptop which has been in storage.

The problem is, the laptop will suddenly freeze when in use (especially under high load), sometimes pre-shadowed by the hard disk light turning solid and the PC lagging significantly. The end result would be long pressing the power button to turn it off before turning it on again.

The diagnostics I have performed up to today are

1. chkdsk on C: and D: partition - No issues found

2.Hd Sentinel health check - Very healthy disk, 98%, 2 non repairable bad sectors. Approximately 5000 hrs in use, 50 failures, which seems reasonable upon consulting other forums.

3. Memtest86 - A total of 5 tests for each combination of ram units and slots. 4 passes for each test, 0 errors.

4.Clean and replace CPU and GPU thermal paste - No noticeable difference

5. Format and reinstall Windows - Problem comes back after a while

After doing all the above tests, I am still unable to identify the source of the problem.

At this moment I suspect three things:

1. The laptop is not made for 64 bit Windows that is currently installed, so I should downgrade.

2. The power supply is faulty

3. The hard disk is indeed faulty despite favourable diagnostic results.

3 days ago my PC starts making more noise than normal.

After that it freezes completely when installing programs and sometimes when surfing in the net.
Even during Steam updates it crashes.

I tought it could be an hardware failure. I have run Windows memory Diagnostic tool, scandisk..
etc and everything seems to be fine. My hd temperature according to hard disk sentinel is around 26? C.

Also i can play games and run perfect in safe mode so i have my doubts that i could be hardware related.
I dont have any slowdowns in my pc.

I also tried a system restore without success.I didnt find any malware.

I try to run sfc /scannow but it says that the "Windows Resource Protection cant start the repair service.
If i insert the windows disk and run it at starup it says "other repair task is pending or something like that.
Any suggestions?

It looks like i will have to format the pc.
PS: I forget to say that most of time my PC doesnt turn off. In keeps saying logging off but nothing happens.

A:My PC freezes completely when installing new programs

If your computer never shutsdown that is a problem. The problem will continue on the next time you startup.
If your computer hasn't repaired itself and the hanging like you said I guess a clean install is in order.

Let us know.

Hi,

I've posted a few other times in the Malware forums, never before on this form.

Lately I have been experiencing a very troublesome problem.

Often it happens shortly after booting my laptop, but it has also happened hours after.

Things will be operating normally then my desktop and toolbar will completely freeze up and will not recover from this state. If I have a firefox browser open at the time, it is possible for me to continue using it but it eventually will also freeze.

Ctl+Alt+Delete key combo does nothing and I am forced to power down and reboot.

I do frequent malware scans using MBAM, Super-AntiSpyware and have auto-update AVG Anti-Virus. All come back clean, so I'm confident it's not a virus/malware issue.

I just really have no idea where to begin troubleshooting this issue. I can tell you that analysis of the System, and Application event logs show nothing that alarming that could relate to this issue (although I could be looking past something).

Any help you can provide to help me deal with this issue will be greatly apppreciated!

It happens randomly, ranging from a few hours after the PC is restarted to a few days. Usually I am just browsing a page or on Microsoft Word etc (nothing CPU intensive as such) when it will simply beep and completely freeze. I have installed an SSD and CPU around 4 months ago which is documented by my previous threads although this problem only started occurring in the last two weeks.

Yes the PC is 7 years old, and it has been on 24/7 for the last 4 years so could it possibly be on its last legs.

Thanks
