Tech Problem Aggregator

My computer started to freeze within 5 minutes of logging on and never finished loading, well it appeared so. I first opened Task Managaer to see what was using up the cpu and it appeared to be services.exe. I ran an anti-virus scan and it found a trojan which was disinfected. I then searched for the file name services.exe and it found several, i was advised to keep the one in system 32 and delete the rest, which i did. However the computer still freezes after logging on and i have to enter safe mode to allow me to use the computer. I opened task manager and services.exe is not eating up the cpu this time and nothing else seems to be, but i may be mistaken.

Hello All. I am having a problem with my computer. I just bought a router and a USB mouse today and after I installed the driver and software for the PCI Network adapter I noticed my computer freezes every now and then and I have to restart it. Can someone tell me what's wrong and how to fix the problem? Thanks in advance.

A:computer freezes constantly

please bump my post back to the top. It has been 48 hrs. Also, may I add that just as I hit submit from the computer in question, it froze again. I'm on another computer right now. There is no rhyme or reason for the freezes and I never know when it will happen. I can't run programs like anti spyware most of the time. Thanks.

I had windows 7 for a month and everything was just fine. But my computer started freezing and restarting randomly just a few days ago. It got to the point when the screen would freeze at startup - you know, when the windows logo shows up? So I reformatted my computer to windows xp (all my files and programs are erased from existence!) but it still freezes at startup when the windows logo comes up. Sometimes i get "lucky" and i actually get to the desktop screen, I would poke around a little and then BOOM- the screen turns weird colors and my mouse cant move. I am forced to restart my computer and continue this crazy loop. I dont know where to look for help. I would greatly appreciate any assistance!

My brother was over at my dorm earlier this week...I think went on my computer and downloaded some games, or music or something. It has been freezing more and more since then, especially while using media center, or other music programs. The screen stays the same, but becomes unresponsive, audio skips like a broken record. My cpu usage also seems to roller coaster. This problem is becoming worse and worse. Please help, I think you guys may know what to do. I've tried running all sorts of virus scans, etc(McAfee, avg, spybot, Malwarebytes.) I also ran MSConfig to try to weed out some startup programs... But the problem still persist.

My gf has been having this problem for a few years with her computer (pretty much since she first got it) and I'm wondering if there's any particular reason why this might be happening. She has a IBM Thinkpad with Windows XP if that helps.

My computer has been constantly freezing each time I boot it up. there is no blue screen, it just freezes on whatever image its displaying. Sometimes I'll be lucky to get one minute out of it without it freezing. And when it freezes I have to reboot it. I tried Safe Mode and it doesn't freeze while in it.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks.

Welcome

Actually you gave us quite a few clues. Try a clean boot, if it freezes, then the problem is probably a driver, if it does not freeze follow the clean boot instructions and find the problem. I am guessing the anti virus.

Hello, a couple of days ago, my sister went to some website to watch a tv show and the computer froze minutes after she left the website. I ran a scan with malwarebytes, and it found a bad registry on my computer. I choose to remove the registry, but the computer still freezes. So as of right now, I get no pops or error messages. The computer just freezes at random times. It usually does this an hour or twenty minutes after I start the computer or when its loading the OS. I was able to get a DDS log but when I went into safe mode and tried to get a GMER log, it froze right after it finished scanning. I hope you guys can help. Thanks in advance.

Basically, my problem is that my computer just randomly freezes whilst I am using it.. I don't know if it is a heat-related issue or not because this morning it froze when my computer was only 20 degrees Celcius. I have tried using Ccleaner, disabling startup processes that I don't need, and use GameBooster. What else can I do?

These are my PC Specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz
RAM: 1014MB
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series

Also, I am looking at temperatures for my computer, so I'll post a picture of them just in case it is a heat-related issue.

Im extremely frustrated, computer keeps freezing not sure why. The freezing occurs randomly sometimes it occurs just after startup while other times i can play a game for a few hours before it freezes. Ive been in a repair shop a couple times and they havent solved the problem despite replacing the mother board and power supply. They also reformated the computer and still get the freezing problem. Also when it freezes i turn the power switch off on the back and then i get a noise from the speakers that sounds like someone tapping on a the desk. How can i discover the problem?

The computer is just over 2 years old.
I have a p4 3 ghz processor, 768 mb of ram, Ati radeon x700 video card.

I was on vacation last week and upon returning my computer is constantly freezing. This is the longest that I have been able to stay on without a freeze. I usually have to hold the power button in to shut it down due to the freeze.

A:Computer freezes constantly

2 more replies

Basically, my problem is that my computer just randomly freezes whilst I am using it.. I don't know if it is a heat-related issue or not because this morning it froze when my computer was only 20 degrees Celcius. I have tried using Ccleaner, disabling startup processes that I don't need, and use GameBooster. What else can I do?

These are my PC Specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz
RAM: 1014MB
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series

Also, I am looking at temperatures for my computer, so I'll post a picture of them just in case it is a heat-related issue.

Hey everyone, I have a Windows 7 Home Premium service pack 1 Sony Vaio x64 laptop.  It constantly freezes and the problem has been getting more frequent.  There is no pattern that I can see.  It may run fine for a little while, or within a few minutes it will freeze.  The mouse will not move and Ctrl-Alt-Dlt doesn't respond.  I have to do a hard shutdown when it happens. What should I do? Thanks!

I had this problem before. Although I am not sure it was the same error message. I got advice from this site and my computer worked fine for several months. Now my Asus laptop works fine for several days. I do a search in Foxfire or IE, everything is working ok and then for no apparent reason the screen freezes up and the hour glass icon that shows the page is downloading goes on indefinately. I have to use my retore disk to get it to work again. I have Vista on this computer. I downloaded Service Pack 2 and all the other updates I needed.

Hey, I've been having this problem on my laptop. Right now, I'm typing this in Safe Mode. Anyway, basically, it will freeze after I do just about anything. If I try to click a shortcut, if I try to access the start menu, etc. etc. I am running a HP Pavilion dv6000 and running Windows Vista. Here's my HJT file.

Hi,
I recently contracted lots of spyware on my computer, it totally destroyed it. So I just used the HP recovery system which restarted my computer back to its factory settings and backed up my HD for me. But after this, I still get trouble with my notebook. Here's my Hijackthis log.

My computer has been constantly freezing the past couple of days. It is a Dell Dimension 2400 with Windows XP Home and 2 GB of RAM. It started freezing shortly after I would reboot. Both the keyboard and mouse wouldn't respond.It had been a while since I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows, so I decided to try that. The weird part is, the computer actually freezes up during the reinstall process. It gets to 33 minutes of the reinstall of Windows XP and then asks me to set the Regional Settings. When I try to move the mouse to click Next, the mouse doesn't move. If I try to just press Enter to click Next, nothing happens. Not sure what could be causing this. It appears the fan is working fine, so I don't think it's overheating. Thanks for any help.

Good evening!

I was directed to a suspected unsafe site about a week ago. Since then, I've noticed my computer being busy or loading when in the past it had sat idle (I run windows 7 so I get the busy circle right by my pointer for about 30-45 seconds during the happenings). This happens during all times of operation; web surfing, program running (iTunes, Media Monkey, Microsoft Word), and even sitting idle on the desktop. My "issue" occurs even after a fresh restart or power up. \

I'm suspecting I somehow downloaded some type of process that is always running and hogging resources from my system. I could however be paranoid. I want to confirm or dis-confirm my assumptions with some help here. I have posted my recent Hijack This log below. I've used Hijack This! Before, however It's been a year or so and my skills at identifying things are dull. Please, if you would take a look and let me know if I have anything that shouldn't be present in my log file. I greatly appreciate it!

My computer keeps freezing, why?

Every time I'm using it, it doesn't matter what program i open, it just freezes. Well what i mean is that my windows explorer stops working and a message pops up saying that windows explorer has stopped working. when i look at the details it says that the problem name is: In Page Error. I really dont understand what that means or refers to. Other programs stop responding as well, practically EVERY program does, but more often its windows explorer that stops working and restarts over and over. Paint Net stopped responding and this is what was under Details:

Hi. I despratly need some help. I am 16 and my parents got a new compaq persario s4020wm desktop a little under a year ago. Ever since we have had it, it does nothing but freeze on us. We bought some memory, took it to a computer professional, spybot, etc. We sent it back to compaq and they did a complete check and it wasnt anything that they could fix. After the first 218 MB memory upgrade it did goof for about 3 or 4 months. It sometimes freezes over 10 times a day and gets so bad that I dont even start it up sometimes. I am trying to finish up papers and what not because im graduationg this year but I cant with this computer. Alot of people say "well I guess you just got a bad apple, go and get a dell". Me nor my parents have the money for a new computer right now and I dont see why this one isnt working. Please someone with some expiernce give me some input. I have 736MB or ram installed right now and it freezed twice while registering for this website.

A:I dont know what to do. Computer freezes constantly

I'll probably sound stupid for this but honestly, just sounds to me like you need to remove the case, get a nice big fan and set it right there up next to your computer, cause it sounds like you're overheating. Either that or try switching your ram around (take one strip and put it in the other's slot, take that strip put it in the other slot).

Figured I'd just throw it out there...

Hi,

Number of problems with my laptop but the main one now is that it constantly freezes (every 5 mins or so).
I wanted to post a log here from HijackThis but it says "your system denied write access to the Hosts".

Also both Malwarebytes & Avast! freeze the computer when I scan my computer for infections (this was happening a few months before the freezing every 5 mins started).

Really need to get this sorted now so I would appreciate any help!

Thanks,
Gubbo

Since day one I have encountered constant computer freezing and lock-ups, first it happened in the bios. After that; during the os install. Not just once but multiple times, requiring me to start from the beginning. I'm talking almost a dozen times just to get the os installed.

After the install, if it wasn't freezing during boot or during startup it was freezing at the desktop. If I was lucky I could get just a few minutes out of it before it would freeze.

Needless to say I can't do much to try and figure out the problem.

Hi all, here are the various log files as instructed. My laptop (winxp system) is taking ages to start up and every time i try to open up a folder/browser or any other action, it freezes for a good while before it resumes the action. Essentially what usually would take a second to do is now taking 5 minutes. I've tried to run the avg virus scan but it just hangs after about 40+ minutes of scanning, the same thing happens to the lavasoft ad aware scan too. I appreciate any/all help.

A:computer constantly freezes / slows down

My computer recently began to freeze, about the time when I updated to Firefox 3.6. At first I thought it was just the internet that was messed up, but it began to freeze even though I wasn't using the internet. Randomly it would just freeze, sometimes after a few minutes others after a few seconds. I have to hit the power button because leaving it alone for a while won't work. I tried to clean the registry but it didn't work. I have a Windows XP, its a desktop computer, I have Intel, and its about 4 years old. if you need any more info please ask! I've had many problems with this computer but I can't afford to buy another one for another two years. Please help! I don't know what else to do.

A:Need help, please!!Computer goes slow and freezes on and off constantly

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

My computer has been freezing and restarting a lot lately. It cannot go more than 1 hour without doing so. It happens especially when I go to game. I'm not sure what could be causing it. I do know that it is not an overheating issue in the computer. I have 3 fans running in it. It is also not a memory issue I have 2gb of RAM and 300g Hardrive. It is also not a dust issue, I've my computer and everything seems to be clean. I have also disable that my computer does not restart during systems failures through the BIOS and also through my computer. Not sure what is causing it, but any help would great greatly appreciated. (Surprised I was able to post hehe)

A:Computer constantly freezes and restarts on its own.

A computer that freezes is usually caused by overheating or a failing Power Supply Unit. Even though you have done this, Take the side off the of the computer and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning. Look at the label for the PSU and report the Make, Model# and Wattage. Boot into Setup (Bios) and go to PC Health or some such, Post +12V line for the PSU and the temperatures.
Also try running in a Clean Boot.

A:my computer constantly freezes on start up

Welcome to TSF.

Let's try fixing some of these and also disable some programs to make sure they are not causing the startup problems:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below. Also if you have any programs that may prevent system changes (like Spybot's TeaTimer program, Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, and others), make sure you disable them before doing any of the fixes (or accept the changes for the fix we give you when asked by the programs).

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido (only if you have Windows 2000 or XP). If y... Read more

So I have a windows 7 computer and the problem is that for some reason my computer freezes up or restarts itself and when it is back on, the lan hardware is no longer working (it appears to say that either the lan is not plugged in or that the hardware is broken). So, I restart my computer again and the lan problem is no longer an issue. However, the computer goes back to the same cycle after a few minutes or hours. I have check for viruses, spyware, checked for registry problem, defragmented my computer and the problem still occurs. I am pretty good with computers but this problem appears to not go away and it is pretty annoying. Please help me out.

it is using windows 7 ultimate, it has a Intel motherboard which is DP35DP media series.
I have 8gigs of ram, Intel core 2 quad cpu model number Q9550 @ 2.83ghz.

Well for about a few days now my computer will randomly freeze and wont work. Two weird things that happen also, 1 my keyboard stops working and these weird blue squiggly lines appear all over my screen whilst it is frozen. http://i62.tinypic.com/2h7q8fl.jpg as you can hopefully see here :\$ this is the best screenshot unfortunately I could take. Please help in any way you can, it would be greatly appreciated!

My first guess is a video driver and software clash.  Be ready to run MiniToolBox, have the log file ready for the BC techs, they will advise how to publish it.

It has been pretty sudden, my laptop the past 2-3 days now has been freezing suddenly after about 1-2 hours after start up. On one occasion it was still at the login screen and it was frozen. Mostly it has occurred when I was just simply on Facebook, checking email, and doing smaller tasks that I have had no issue with just last week. Once frozen, it does not respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Alt+F4, only a hard restart seems to make it work again.

I ran Malwarebyte, Viper Antivirus in Safe mode, nothing was found. I also ran CC registry cleaner and it found some issues with the Window System-32 files. It was de-fragmented about 6 days ago. The laptop itself is Toshiba Satellite and is about 3 years old, running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. I'm not sure if it could be a hard drive starting to go out or something else, it just seems the issue has occurred rather suddenly which seems to make me think that something was downloaded/occurred very recently.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Hello all,

This is my last resort to figure out why Bert (my computer) is dieing on me.

He is a 1 year old computer with Windows Vista 64 bit (Instal, not upgrade) Service pack 1, with 4 gb of Ram, a 500gb hard drive, and a 3.0GHz quad-core processor.

Lately, ive had troubles with him though,

When i try to start it in safe mode.. you'll all reconize this next part: It gets stuck on Crcdisk.sys (Yes, that infamous problem)

Ive googled the subject till i was blue in the face, and ive managed to get it to start up again (only 50% of the time) by doing the following:

I try to start up the computer, it freezes on the loading page
I hold the power button for 4 seconds to turn it off
Turn off the power bar
Press Bert's power button to drain any residual power
Turn on the power bar
Turn on Bert, and it starts properly.

So problem 1 is, id like to figure out how to fix the crcdisk.sys problem permanently, and the second problem is arguably worse:

When i do manage to turn it on, the computer is extremely unresponsive. It will freeze doing ANYTHING (Opening folders/files, Opening/closing windows, Opening/closing Firefox, or Internet Explorer, Loading anything in firefox or internet explorer... Basically anything that a computer can do, will freeze it.)

It will freeze, and the window will "Not responding", and sometimes if i wait a good 30 seconds -... Read more

I have been warned by my internet service that my PC has a malware called "Trojan: Mebroot" and my internet will later be suspended if I do not fix it.

If my computer is started normally, after a period of time it tends to freeze/crash and sometimes even display a bluescreen. Also, if i press ctrl+printscreen+c it will also freeze my computer.

At the moment, I am still using this computer but started on "Debugging Mode" and my computer doesn't freeze (unless I try to do a screenshot). My internet supplier (OPTUS) still warns me to remove the virus otherwise they will suspend my internet.

My computer started to act weirdly about three days ago. Almost everytime I watch a movie or a clip my computer slows down really much, and a lot of times it freezes completely, forcing me to reboot. It also happens when I browse the internet, although not as often. Which is why I'm not able to finish the Panda Scan.

Hi everyone. I'm new here, but this forum is the place I came to help a relative fix her laptop's freezing* issues. The computer is a couple years old, and it has never worked properly. It's a Dell Inspiron 1545 running Windows 7 SP1. She insists on using AOL as her browser and mail app, and I can't get her to switch to something more stable or less resource-hogging. The computer freezes constantly, but naturally I suspect there's a deeper problem than just her use of AOL. I think it might be a registry issue, but I don't have enough knowledge of computer registries to fix it. That's just my hunch, though. I have run anti-virus and anti-malware programs (Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) on it for the past year at least, and she has been virus and malware free for some time.

Recently, she received an error message from Windows Explorer. I can't tell you exactly what it said b/c she didn't write it down, but the short story is I ran the system file checker via the command prompt (sfc /scannow) and received a message saying that the Windows Resource Manager found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. I ran this in safe mode and after a normal boot-up. So here are my questions:

1) if I were to post a CBS log file from her system file checker on bleepingcomputer.com, is there someone who could help me interpret it?
2) should I post the CBS log file that I obtained from running Windows 7 in safe mode or under normal conditions... Read more

Just recently my computer started doing this. Every 15-20 seconds or so, the computer will hang up for about 3 seconds, just did it right now, then has to catch up to what I'm typing or doing. As I watch it in the performance tab in the Task Manager, and it just did it again, the CPU Usage spikes from 10%-ish all the way to 100%. The page file usage memory remains constant. And it just froze again. Three times for typing just several sentences!! ARGHH!!!

Another thing to note is that my HDD LED light always stays on now, it used to flicker and go off, now it's on all the time, but the drive isn't making any kind of noise.

I have NOD32 anti-virus, Spybot S&D, and Webroot Spysweeper and they're all up to date and just ran them. I also have O&O Professional and just defragged as well.

No errors were found, yet I still get this VERY frustrating error.

I sure hope someone can help me or offer advice. Thanks in advance...

I recently moved to a new location and set up my computer.

Somewhere between BOOT and Windows XP starting up, my computer suddenly freezes. Sometimes it's delayed long enough for me to log into XP, only to crash a few seconds later. I assumed that maybe I attached something incorrectly, and checked the wires. They are fine.

Before my move, the computer never gave such problems. It's difficult for me to figure out exactly what to do or how to fix it when I can only use the computer properly for about a minute or so.

For a while, I tried going into Safe Mode or using a System Restore to move the computer back to a point where this issue did not occur. That worked for a time, and now it does not. The only way for me to use my computer now is to log into Safe mode with networking, and when I'm done, set the PC to stand by.

Another issue there - my computer refuses to stand by.

It would show off only to start right back up again on its own, and once the Welcome screen is displayed, either I can't type anything or the computer freezes.

I'm not sure why this is happening. Is there any solution to this?

I have AVG anti-virus, and have run several scans that have not found anything. I have also run malwarebytes and spybot which have also come back clean. I still feel there is something wrong.

Hello, Techsupportforum. I've been plagued by this problem for years now and I just got sick of it. What's been going on is that my computer freezes, makes a jarring sound when it does, and will stay this way for anywhere between thirty seconds and ten or so minutes. This mostly happens when I am actively doing something on my computer such as browsing the web or playing a game. This can happen as many as a dozen times a day, or once a week. Below is a copy of my system from Speccy64. Some information not included is that I use Avast and Malwarebytes for anti-virus. In the past I've used SpyBot S&D, Microsoft Security Essentials, and AVG. All of them tell me my computer is virus free, so I'm pretty positive it isn't a virus-related problem. Thank you in advance for taking the time to help.

Hello mate.

Couple of Q's if you don't mind;
Where is the sound coming from; the PC, or speakers do you think?
The virtual drive; Is there an ISO attached to it constantly? GCP (I find) is to disabling any virtual drives you're not actively using.
Wouldn't hurt to check your NVidia drivers up to date also - You can do this by right-clicking anywhere on your desktop, select 'NVidia Control Panel', 'Help', 'System Info' and let me know the installed driver version.

That should get the ball rolling!

A couple weeks back I got the good ol' "Malware Defense" thing pop up and tell me I had all sorts of problems. I looked around the 'net and found lots of potential solutions, and seemed to have it all taken care of after various scans with Malwarebytes and other software. However in the last few days the computer frequently freezes up, and it doesn't seem to happen during a certain activity or anything like that-just at random. I don't know if it's related. I've continued to run many scans, and sometimes they come up with nothing, and other times they will find problems and fix them, which makes me think new malware (or something bad...) keeps getting frequently added to the computer. Oddly, while I'm running scans and things like that, I don't believe it's ever frozen. But when the computer is really in use, that is when the problems arise. I've tried a few more things today to try and fix it, and haven't had any problems, though I haven't been on the computer all that much since the last 4 hours were taken up by scans.So, I'm hoping maybe someone here can take a look at the logs I have created using the guidelines from this forum, and see if anything stands out, or if there's anything else I need to do.The DDS.txt log is seen below, and the attach.txt and ark.txt files are attached.

A:Had Malware Defense, and now computer freezes constantly

Just to update really quickly, the problem HAS in fact continued (I had said originally I hadn't had any more problems that day). It froze probably 4 or 5 times yesterday in a fairly short amount of time being used. Also, if this information helps any, when it freezes, I still have usage of the mouse, as far as movement. Clicking on anything does nothing, but I can still move the curser around, as opposed to the type of freezing when nothing at all works.Thanks, hope someone can help!

Hello,

I have been having trouble for a couple weeks with Firefox. Every so often Firefox will hang, and cause a total system freeze for a short period of time. Sometimes this can cause explorer to crash too, other times if for example I was watching a YouTube video or a Twitch stream, I get a message saying the shockwave plugin is not responding. This would then again cause an entire system lock up. I would then begin to attempt to open up task manager with the Ctrl+Shift+Esc combination. On my computer it would always instantaneously open up. During these experiences it does not show up at all. So I would then attempt to right click the taskbar to open Task Manager from the options there. The taskbar (as I'm assuming explorer was still hung) would not respond for a couple minutes until finally the menu pops up. I would then select Task Manager. After a short while (maybe 30 seconds) Task Manager would finally show up. It is here that I would see that there are two Task Manager processes. So I would attempt to kill one. I would select the one that was ~100 kb (which I'm assuming is the one that hasn't shown up yet as the other one had ~4000kb). This would be in vain as attempting to kill most processes was also in vain. So I started a round of anti virus and malware checks. I originally started with an Avast! boot time scan. I received an error of 42111. I looked into this and it seems as though Avast! was failing to scan an archived file. After this comp... Read more

Hello forum,

I built this desktop about a month ago with these components (with links to the specs):

Case:Cooler Master HAF 932(delivers excellent cooling built right in)
CPU: Intel Core i7-930 @ 2.88Ghz (i overclocked to 3.8Ghz and is stable)
CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212
GPU: ATI Sapphire Radeon 5850 (slightly OC'ed to max in Catalyst and is stable)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM
Mobo: EVGA X58 FTW3
RAM: Corsair XMS 3 4GB (recently upgraded to 6GB Corsair Dominators)
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W
This thing runs amazingly well, except for one problem: it will freeze whenever it is loading something.

For example: If i am running a game with my internet browser in the background(I use Google Chrome)and I alt+tab between them. Eventually, my computer will freeze but only when switching from Chrome to the game. Not when switching from the game to Chrome

My computer will also freeze when I'm watching a streaming video Say, YouTube.com or Gametrailers.com. If my computer successfully pre-loads the video, it won't freeze. It will only freeze before the video is fully pre-loaded, if it does decide to freeze at all.

What i mean by "freeze" is that the computer becomes 100% non responsive. Whatever was on the screen at that moment is stuck there. There is no BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Mouse and Keyboard are non-responsive. Ctrl + alt + del does nothing, too. However, the fans are all still running, and the power light is on. There is no HDD activit... Read more

I hate to say it, but you may want to back off the overclock on your processor, cause it kind of sounds like a stability issue to me.

Hello,

I have been having some issues for the last couple of days with my computer.  I first experienced trouble with Firefox while watch a simple Twitch Stream.  For no reason (as the computer was completely idle save the stream) I received a message saying Shockwave Player (or some script on the page) stopped responding.  The popup gave me the option to wait for the script to respond, or to kill it.  I attempted to kill it, by opening up Task Manager.  This took maybe 3 minutes to open up, while in the process hung my entire system the whole time, and then led to Firefox itself to completely lock up.  As well, when attempting to open up Task Manager in the first place, if at first the window did not show up I would attempt to open it again.  The first time by using the Ctrl, Shift, Escape combination, and when that was unsuccessful (as it normally pops up instantly), I would thusly right click the taskbar to open it that way.  By doing this method it would take minutes for the popup from the taskbar itself to showup.  After finally getting Task Manager open, I would see two different Task Manager processes.  One at roughly 4k kilobytes of memory, while the other ~100.  As someone with a tiny bit of OCD I would close the smaller kilobyte one by right clicking it to kill the process from the popup menu.  Right clicking the process would give me no window, nor would hitting kill process from the tab on the Task...

On start up it gets to the Windows 98 screen and after about 10 secs the bar freezes up and stays that way indefinately. If I reboot in Safe mode everything loads up fine, but no matter what I seem to change I cant get it to boot in Normal mode. The biggest problem I have is that in Safe mode it isn't registering my dvd drives either so I cant do a fresh install to fix things. I know this isn't really much to go on, but I hope someone can help me out.

Edit: It also occasionally reboots at the same point... and (I dont know if this happens for everyone...) the point is just after the Windows 98 loading screen flickers once.... which I used to notice right before it continued into windows.

Hi in safe mode not all drivers load up.
Try f 8 choose command prompt..type scanreg /restore [note space]
Choose date prior to problem..not the oldest.
If no joy..try scanreg /fix.

Hi,

I have been using my laptop without problems for about 1 year and a half. Recently, about a week ago, it suddently started to be extremely slow and freeze whenever it is loading something.

When I open any website, when I open a picture folder, when I open paint or anything else, my computer just start to load slowly and then completly freeze. The only thing i can move is the mouse and nothing else. I can't open Task Manager and I cant click on anything else. After a couple minutes (depending on the weight of what i am loading i suppose) it will unfreeze and run ok until i click on something else.

Example:
Open streaming site > Freeze > Unfreeze > Click on video > Freeze > Unfreeze > Watch the video without clicking anything > Pause > Freeze > Unfreeze > Play > Freeze..... And so on.

My windows is also very slow to start and close. When my desktop appears, my taskbar theme sometimes changes (won't change multiple times during a single session, only when opening my computer) and i get a windows error (a popup alert, don't remember exactly what it said). Upon closing my computer, there is always explorer.exe running and has to be shutdown.

I have also noticed that my sound is lower then it used to be, even when it is completly maxed out you can barely hear. I'm not sure if it is related but i'm just pointing it out.

Once again, this randomly and suddently happened without any new programs or new websites visited.

I'm not entirely sure where to post this, but windows seems to be treating it as a BSOD (Shows me the "Unexpected shutdown" summary when I boot it in safe mode, creates a kernel dump) so I'll post it here.

My mom's computer has started to hang on boot. It will reboot, attempt to do a startup repair, and then fail to boot again. If I boot into safe mode, I see that it gets stuck after CLASSPNP.sys, and then eventually loads into safe mode and gives me a crash report. I thought it was the hard drive because I thought I heard clicking, so we bought a new SSD and reinstalled. After installing the intel graphics driver from the CD, it experiences the same crash as before.

I've removed everything connected to the motherboard except the SSD (including keyboard and mouse), and it still crashes. I've tried each stick of RAM by itself, still crashes. I've exhausted my arsenal on this problem, and I hope somebody here can help me figure out what's going on and how I can fix it.

Specs:
CPU: i5-2400
Mobo: H67M-GE
RAM: 8GB DDR-1600 (Not sure of brand or model #)
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 240GB

Your Intel graphics driver is being flagged, and it's outdated.

Hi

I have had this computer for 4 years and have kept it perfect ever since because I guess I'm somewhat good with computers untill now. Recently I added another gig of ram and while I was putting in the stick I noticed a pin was damaged and completely curved. I fixed it to my best and managed to add the ram succesfully. Unfortunately ever since then I have experienced more BSOD's for example

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

And other bsod errors.

I'm afraid that ever since I installed my video card (GeForce 9800 GTX+) which was a HUGE video card and my memory I might have rushed it and maybe even damaged some pins ect. I took a break from pc gaming and did not touch my pc for over 6 months. I have just started and noticed my pc won't even load past the hp screen tried to hit (F10) for recovery but it won't even work. After some 15 tries it loads past it but BSODS after 30 seconds. I have considered reformatting but I want to save music/Internet favorites/ and other gaming stuff that I've played over the years. Also i'm noticing random proccesses and am starting to think that this computer is like a death machine with alot of probs, I kept my computer clean as possible with advanced programs "MalwareBytes" and "ComboFix" and "CCleaner". Im starting to think my bsod problem might be due to my big vid card probably damaging wires and my ram that I added that damaged that pin. *B... Read more

First thing is to pull the suspect (added, possibly damaged) RAM and see if the problems go away. If they do, you've found your problem.

Sorry about this, some time ago I posted this and thought I'd got it sorted, but I haven't! I couldn't find the original thread this time so I'm having to start again.

I've got a Dell with two CD ROM trays, and whenever I try to load any disc (CD, DVD, CD ROM, either new or burned) the computer freezes - the cursor/arrow won't move, Ctrl/Alt/Del won't do anything, and I have to turn the whole thing off and start again. It normally takes 5-10 goes before the disc will load ok, and there's no indication of what the problem was. Some time ago there was a suggestion that it might have been my Norton AV interfering with it, and I disabled this when I was installing discs and it seemed to improve things, but not by a lot - the difference between taking 3 and 10 goes to load a disc sounds good but it's still frustrating! I uninstalled the Norton the other day to see if that was the problem, but it didn't make any difference at all - no discs worked straight away, and it took me nearly half an hour to get the Norton disc back in and loaded!

I don't use a lot of discs, which is why I haven't put as much effort into sorting this out as I should have, but I've promised my son that I'll do my best this time....so any help would be really appreciated, thanks. Please could any advice be in simple steps, cos I'm not much good on the old keyboard, if you get my drift!

Cheers in advance for any help, Moose.

hello.

a few days ago, i installed a few updates from windows updates, nothing special; 2 security fixes, .net framework, and windows media player 10( i got myself a new computer). well i couldn't install media player 10 through windows update, so i had to download it manually; though it wouldn't install at first. it said that i had to restart the setup. that's what i did, and it all went fine. then i restarted my computer,
and a problem occured. i saw the windows xp bootlogo, it kept loading, for a few minutes. then it stopped. so i restarted my computer, and then it said, system disk error, please enter boot disk. so i put the windows xp installation cd into the dvd drive. the setup menu came, and i pressed r to repair windows xp. though it said, that there are no harddrives. so i had shut down my computer and opened my computer chassis. i checked the wires but they are all ok.
so i restarted, and the boot disk failure message didn't appear. though it said that windows couldn't be started properly. and i had to select an option( for example boot in safe mode).

so i chose safe mode, which went fine. i tryed to find out which program, or service is causing this freezing; and after a lot of reboots, i managed to start up windows xp properly( 2 times). so i started to enable some more programs 1 by 1( by using msconfig); though the problem occured again. and after that i couldn't manage to enter windows xp (only through safe mode) properly, no matter which program i a...

are you able to go back to the old video card you had installed and remove the memory?

You could try a different OS and see if the PC will boot and get any data off
UBUNTU
It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD

YOu can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick

Select a location
Save the file onto your PC &#8211; remember where you saved it &#8211; so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/

When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see the following options
1) Try ubunto without any change to your computer
2) Install ubuntu

Sometimes my computer freezes while it should be trying to get to the point where it's done starting up in the morning. The desktop appears, and the icons, and sometimes some programs in my 'Startup' folder open, but then it freezes, no more loading, and it doesn't let me interact with it in any way other than that the mouse moves, no matter how long I wait. This morning I had to force a restart several times before it successfully loaded up, which was worse than ever. I thought maybe I had too many programs in my 'Startup' folder so I chopped it in half in Safe Mode, but still it happens sometimes. It feels like it could be anything, so I'm not sure what to do.

Hey andrew,This is a tricky one to diagnose at times. Could you possibly post an Autoruns log for analysis?Also, you may wish to run a bootvis analysis, which enumerates startup processes and shows how they affect boot times.What type of security software are you running?~os

My laptop belonged to my brother and had very little use, he gave it to me and i put norton security on it, whenever i load a site with a few pictures it freezes and a message on the bottom of the screen says loading an ad (not always the same one, a few different ones). I don't use the computer a lot, mainly i like to check the news (used to anyway) but now it just freezes and i cant click on anything. sometimes if i start it up and shut it down a few times it does work but this is very time consuming. also ebay does not work, just freezes when i click on a picture. strangely enough my son likes youtube and this works perfectly, you can view videos with no interruptions.

I had a similar problem not too long ago where my PC would not load and I had to re-install windows. But now, If I try to press F8 it just ignores it and carrys on into loading windows normally, which causes the PC to freeze. This also happens when I try and boot from my windows setup disk. I have checked all the lights on my keyboard and they are all on and working whenever I press Caps Lock etc.
As for Viruses etc. I had not downloaded anything new onto the PC since this last hapened and I have been running regular Anti-Virus scans every 2-3 days.

Like I said, I can't get into safe mode or anything so thatis out of the question.

My computer started freezing, after using it for a while or running a lot of programs.

I cleaned the fan coil and made sure the fans are working. It started asking to do a disk check and never finished, until it wouldn't get passed the windows xp loading screen.

I have a windows xp sp3 disk but it doesn't come on until windows loads so I can't repair it.

I checked my hard drive connected to another computer and all my stuff is still there and was able to finish running a disk check and run a virus scan.

Oops, must of lost my train of thought and not finished the rest of my post.

Is there a way to run the repair disk before windows xp loads or a way to do it as a slave on someone else's computer.

Started about a month and a half ago, when my power supply died while the computer was on.

First, my computer specs:
Pentium 4 2.66 GhZ
768 mb RAM
Samsung 80gb hard drive
ATI x1300 video card
Edit: OS is Windows XP Pro
I believe it was 420w, and now I have a 350w supply. After that, I noticed that the computer was considerably slower. About 2 weeks ago, it started to freeze everytime I would load a big application (World of Warcraft, Counter-strike, games in general, Vegas editing, etc) or multiple applications at once (many firefox tabs open, AIM,etc.) The programs started freezing more and more frequently, up until today where I decided to reformat my computer. My computer now runs much smoother, but it will still freeze when loading big applications. I'm guessing the slow-down was due to some registry errors of sort, but whats the deal with the freezing? It's very frustrating.

Another thing to note :

Whenever it freezes, the computer seems to revert to 5 minutes or so before the freeze. For example, if I delete a file, and clean the recycling bin. When I reboot the comp after it froze the file might be back in the recycling bin.

Hi everyone

I have a new computer approx 2 months old. Tonight my son was having trouble with our webcam (which is in our Asus monitor) not working. When I checked the settings it said it was being used by another program. As it is only used for msn I thought rebooting might work.

When I tried to reboot, windows booted fine but as my virus software (Trend) was trying to boot everything just froze and I could not even use the mouse.

I can get into safe mode and so I tried to uninstall Trend but it would not let me so I then tried to go to a restore point and it came up with an error of "a device attached to the system is not functioning. (0x8007001f). system restore will now close. I then tried to do it in safe mode with command prompt and typed in rstrui.exe (as per windows help instructions) and the same error came up.

I dont know if it is just vista or this is also a problem but I did not get the option to restart with the last good working config with the safe mode options. I tried f8 while booting and that still didnt come up.

I cannot get the system to continue to boot up fully.

Thankfully I have a laptop as well.

Thanks

You can try resetting the CMOS jumper on the motherboard...then attempt to enter the BIOS.

You might also want to possibly consider replacing your CMOS battery. When it starts to weaken, the BIOS/system tends to act strangely, IME.

Hi there,

I had actually seen another post about this, in which the user was helped by nasdaq; but he eventually gave up because he thought he was paranoid. He's not paranoid, this is a real issue. My problem would not be a big deal if I was using this Windows XP laptop to do anything other than play XP compatible video games, such as Diablo II; the computer runs everything else fine, and I can ignore the constant background loading issue because I can still navigate around and nothing really is happening. I scrubbed with Malwarebytes and cleaned up the leftovers with CCleaner, which I'm sure could probably be more efficient. I'm not sure the answer is something viral, but I could always be wrong, what with having a tiny female brain and all.

Does anyone have any ideas?

As the name suggests when i load videos on youtube they just keep reading Loading.... and never actually load. It worked before repair install of XP but not now. I have allowed youtube domain within mcaffe to ensure this isnt an issue. I'm connecting to a 54mbps router and 2mbps broadband connection so the connection speed shouldnt be affecting it. Youtube help mentioned somthing about streaming applications conflicting, but i'm unsure what i need to do to correct this. Any advice, much appreciated. Thanks

After doing the Reapir Install did you visit Windows Update site to install the 60+ updates?

This problem has been going on for about three weeks now. I don't really know why. CPU usage is normal, fluctuates between 0 and 25. The flash is super distracting. Any help would be appreciated. I cant figure this one out for the life of me...

I don't have any viruses or rogue processes running that I can see. It does not occur in safe mode but still does even when I use game booster (IOBIT program that safely stops many running processes to use cpu power for game being played). I'm stumped!

It happens as soon as I get to the desktop, and is not affected by if I am running something or not...

Just a guess, maybe it is your mouse driver? I had a problem once were, when the mouse moved, two installed drivers processed the movement setting CPU usage fairly high when I moved the mouse. Fluctuations between 0 and 25 seem pretty high.
But something else you could look at would be the mouse settings. Get to it by typing 'mouse' in the start menu search and going to the Pointers tab to see if somehow your Normal Select pointer is a loading animation one.

Hey guys, I'm having an issue with my mouse's cursor constantly flashing the loading sign (blue circle) over and over. It only ever stops if I mouse over something that changes the normal cursor picture.

It started happening after my computer just froze randomly while playing Dota 2. I had to manually shut down the computer and when I turned it back on that is when this problem started happening.

I've read almost every thread I could find on this issue, and nothing helps me yet.

Also, I can't do a system restore (as far as I know) because I had savepoints turned off before the issue so there is nothing to restore to.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Edit: It also seems that my internet is responding/loading slower than before.

Bump.

Hey,

I am running a desktop that freezes within 3 minutes of Windows XP and showing the desktop. Keyboard won't work and sometimes mouse cursor is able to move. I tried system restore, recovery console (which caused me more grief because it overwrote my Vista MBR), NOD32 scans, Ad-aware scans, Spybot scans, and ClamWin scans. I don't know how this happened. A few days ago, I came back to my computer from watching TV and it was frozen. I had to manually reboot with the button and it's been like this ever after.

D:\ is my Windows XP partition.

Greetings to everyone,My computer freezes in Normal and Safe Mode, when I can get into Safe Mode, constantly. I've run Malware for the entire system and found no problems. I've cleaned the registry, run CCleaner regularly and use Shadow Defender when online. I've also used Eset to clean up the system successfully. When trying to run SUPERAntiSpyware however, it always freezes after about 8-10 minutes. I can't figure it out. I have a new Seagate 2T Green Hard Drive, 2Gig of new Kingston DDR SDRAM, A new NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS video card and 2 new Lite On DVDR/CDR units. I've got an ASUS A8V-VM SE Motherboard, AMD 2.2 Athlon processor, a Ralink WiFi USB adapter, Logitech K350 keyboard, Kensington Expert Mouse Pro, a Behringer sound adapter, all USB. I also have 2 Seagate FreeAgent external USB drives but both are disabled. ASUS has assured me the board can handle up to 8 USB devices although I only have 6. I'm using XP Pro SP3 with ALL the updates. It's been to the shop 4 times. The last time it ran fine for two days with virtually identical hardware connected before being returned. It froze within 10 minutes after return. It will run for an hour or two occasionally but when I go online it will usually freeze up within 10-15 minutes. I've even switched from Firefox 3.6.6 to 3.5.16 because of other reports of problems with 3.6.6. It also freezes using IE 8 as well. It is also very stubborn about going into Safe Mode. Even using msconfig doesn'... Read more

A:XP Pro Freezes constantly.

Hi tquad1951 --Since being back from the shop have you attempted checkdisk /r CMD /C ECHO Y|CHKDSK C: /R | SHUTDOWN /R /T 30 If your system is stable enough to try this, copy and paste this code in Run Box, close all open programs and click OK - This will reboot the system and take about 30 mins so that is why I say "only if stable enough" - Otherwise insert your XP CD and select System repair (the shop may have done this) - <- I've cleaned the registry, -> I hope you did not install a registry cleaner as they can cause similar problems -CCleaner should generally only be used to clear out temp files, and the registry items should be unticked when installing - - Also check that all drivers are updated -Try to remove all but the required items (keyboard and mouse) first as you have a lot of items hooked up <- ASUS has assured me the board can handle up to 8 USB devices although I only have 6 -> , This may be OK in theory but the types and resourses of the items may mean there is an overload still - Some computers can barely handle a printer plus 1 or 2 other items at the same time -Is this computer used for a lot of editing (with 2 new Lite On DVDR/CDR units installed) - Run it as "bare" as you can first and then begin to add the extras one at a time to see if any of these is causing the problem -Thank You -

My computer is freezing constantly in both normal and safe mode. It usually freezes when online, but not all the time. It will freeze off line in both modes. Unfortunately, I never get any error messages and my Event Viewer only reads Event ID 51, Disk, (error detected on hard disk) or Event ID 7026, Service Control Manager, (system start drivers failed to load). I've run Malwarebytes with no results. I also run CCleaner regularly, Wise Registry Cleaner, Eset, Spybot S&D, Avast and several others. When I try to run SuperAntiSpyyware it freezes after 6-9 minutes every time. It freezes at unpredictable times in almost all other cases. Typically it will freeze between 15 to 20 times per day, especially when I'm online. It has been in for service to a very reputable repair facility four times. After initially replacing my video card it runs fine in the shop, sometimes for up to two days or more. Upon returning to my residence it usually freezes in less than one hour, sometimes 20 minutes or less. I'm running XP Pro SP3 with the following hardware: ASUS A8V-VM SE Motherboard, 2Gig New Kingston DDR 400 SDRAM, New Seagate 2Terabyte Green HD, New Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS 512mb Video Card, New 2 Lite On DVDR/CDR Drives, 1 Lite On CDR Drive, New Ralink RT73 USB WiFi Adapter, Behringer UCA 202 USB Audio Adapter, New 2 Seagate FreeAgent USB HD's, New Logitech K350 USB Keyboard, Kensington USB Expert Mouse Pro Trackball, New LGR 510 Purple Oc...

Hi,
Here are my gmer and dds logs. Before you read the logs, here are a few details you might find helpful.

1) 3 days ago the computer began to run as slow as molasses and would freeze up a lot, forcing me to constantly restart.

2)Whenever I restarted, checkdisk would run, saying my disc weren't "consistent".

3)Yesterday the computer became almost unusable. I figured I had nothing to lose,to I decided to reinstall my OS. The computer wouldn't allow a repair install, so I did a full install instead. That's why you see so many programs added and deleted from computer today (4/30).Reinstalling the OS has made no difference.

4) I cannot run the computer in Safe Mode with Networking. When I try to do this, I see a page of System32Drivers.

5) When I check BIOS, it said SMART status is ok, when both BIOS tests failed.

6) Malwarebytes found nothing. AVG found one virus.

7) When I tried fixmbr, it said "The old master boot record cannot be read".

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
Motherboard: Biostar TA790GX A3+
RAM: 4gb Corseir

Windows is constantly freezing up, seemingly at random. Sometimes 5 mins after boot. Sometimes an hour. The mouse pointer stops responding and task manger won't open.

I've installed all the updates from Microsoft and also Biostar, ATI etc. But it has made no difference.

I've also tried a clean install of Windows on a formatted hdd. Same problem.

Eventviewer shows the following from about half an hour (I think) before the last crash:

"The ATICDSDr service failed to start due to the following error:
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source."

This error appears 20 times in the space of 1 minute. Any relevance?

Also, this might be completly unrelated but I have 2 updates that refuse to install.
1. HID Non-User Input Data Filter
2. Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Detection Filter

I am finding this very frustrating as I can't get any thing done on my machine. And I really don't want to have to revert back to Vista!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try installing the latest 32/64 bit ATi drivers from the official site.

Ok so i appreciate any help given in advance and i will try to be as thorough as i can

I left my pc on for about 24 hours and then began to us it again. I noticed that it was running incredibly slowly, and would not let me open more than 1 folder for instance. Also when i oppened a folder occasionally it would not load the contents but display a windows logo at the top of the folder. I thought it a bit weird and thought it was probably a memory problem. I rebooted and after about 1 minute it totaly froze. Mouse pointer, keyboard all froze. I wasnt sure about the rest of the computer. But for the first minute after the desktop was displayed i could do what i wanted, if i was quick eneugh. I force turned it off and booted it up again. It still froze after 1 minute and i booted it up again. This time i hit control alt delete and watched the memory and proccessor. Both looked normal and then my pc froze and the results of the proccessor and memory continued to be displayed for about 10 seconds. This confirms that the pc was indeed freezing to. As soon as my pc froze the proccessor clocked up to 100% but memory didnt alter. Then the readings stoped 10 seconds after my pc froze. I was a bit stumped.

I booted into bios and dissabled the boot windows quickly option and tried again. No change and so i downloaded the microsoft memory test thing and put it on a bootable floppy, still convinced it was memory relate. However the diagnosis reports no errors. Again I was stumped.

Hi,
I'm using an NEC Versa S900 with Windows XP Professional Edition. I purchased this laptop about a year ago. No matter what I'm doing, or not doing, the bloody thing will sooner or later lock up completely for no apparent reason and then I'd have to turn off and turn back on the laptop and pray that it wouldn't happen again.

The wierd thing is that this only happens if i use the touchpad on the laptop. If i connect a mouse and use that, then everything will work all fine and dandy. But right now, i don't have a mouse available, so i find myself rebooting every few minutes. In fact, i'm just praying it will let me finish this post.

I am obviously real dumb with computers so I don't know any other necessary details so just tell me what to say.

If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated. This thing is driving me nuts...
