Help! My pc constantly freezes after 1 minute

Q: Help! My pc constantly freezes after 1 minute

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.

I booted into safe mode and to my surprise everything worked for as long as i wanted it to. i dissabled all programs form startup and i ran spware, adware, virus etc tests. Also i ran a registry fixer. Now after all of that i was confident that what ever it was would be gone. I booted up again and there was still no change.

Again i booted into safe mode and i checked the event viewer from the administrative options in the control panel. It reported an error while trying to load elbyVCD when the system was started. I had previoulsy uninstalled the application that required this and so i dissabled the drive and booted up again. Still froze after about 1 minute. Booted into safe mode and checked the event viewer and now there was no errors. I am unsure if dissabling a drive is eneugh or do i need to completely unistall it?

I then restored my sytem to before it started crashing but no surprise it didnt help. I then attached proccess explorer to the startup adn booted up and watched all of the programs load and i saw nothing irregular. I dissabled a lot of the no essential proccesses and rebooted. Nope, no change.

I am unsure where to go from here as i believe i have rulled out almost all of the possible things that are causing the problems. Unless it is directly related to the operating system and therefore the faul of windows xp. I have made bootable floppys of the recovery console and have not yet run it as i am unsure if it is windows related. If it is the o/s then surely safe mode would not boot up? But for now i will keep searching for problems inbetween doing my homework/coursework. I need to fix this problem as quickly as i can as word isnt to brilliant in safe mode and neither is printing, especially with homework saved on my pc that needs to be printed. It is possible i know, just awkward. I am currently downloading a linux live cd, knoppix, and i will run this and see if it loads up correctly without error/freezes.

I appreciate any help and unless i have missed something obvious, i believ i have a real problem. Thankyou for listening and if you could reply as soon as possible, that would be great.

Wow big first post ;D

Problem is with UDP based games and networking I'm finding I'm getting an extremely consistant ( too regular! ) lag spike every 60-65 seconds, and lasts for 3 seconds (hence the 65 I think). I've two levels of firewall, wireless router, which I know for a fact works fine, and a secondary personal firewall (sygate). With sygate enabled and blocking win32 services, ntoskrnl and scvhost I still get the lag spike. I have no idea why ntoskrnl or svchost is trying to use UDP either, I've not seen that before.

The only difference in network solution is my wireless is a usb netgear ma101 rather than the pci version I have in my win2kpro machine ( this is because the damn aerial is at the back so usb is to get the device from under the desk). Either way they are both wireless, does winXPpro do anything like periodically poll for new networks ? I only allow trusted pc's through mac addresses, so I do not worry about wep encryption. (dont want to slow stuff down ). I have disabled a lot of my services, and put a lot on manual, there is a wireless service enabled, something I do not remember from win2k.

any help would be extremely helpful

thanks

My Win7x64 home was installed recently by AVAdirect (the computer builder). I haven't seen any BSOD but perhaps a few times a day it freezes for 30 or 60 seconds and then merrily goes on its way as if nothing wrong ever happened. I see lots of warnings in the system health test (attached) but I don't know which if any of these are something to be concerned about. During the freeze the mouse will still move around but the active window says "Program Name (Not Responding)" in the title bar. The non responding program is usually Firefox or Thunderbird but that is probably because those are the programs I use the most. I have seen it happen once in the game solitaire as well. The system configuration information is also attached.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer about how to track down this problem.

A:One minute freezes

hi
Perform a SFC Scan (System File Check)

1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow

2. Type the following command, sfc /scannow and then press ENTER:

(A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'. Be patient because the scan may take some time)

3. If any files require a replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Windows 7 DVD for this process to continue

4. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

5. After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer. (TIP repeat scan 3 times)

Hi dudes,
Actually I don't sure if it is hardware issue or software. I expected some troubles in games which I tried to play (Medal of Honor, Battefield: Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops). This happened after I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate (OEM, 64-bit). Drivers are updated by Driver Genius. Maybe it happens because my PC becomes very hot (before reinstall it was hot too), and there is no way to cool it. So this how it looks: after 10 minutes PC become hot, cooler makes very loud sound and trouble begins. PC freezes every minute for 10 seconds (not freeze but FPS level near 10). Sound sounds as usual. But it is really annoying thing.

Hi!

When my computer is under relatively heavy load or I'm downloading really fast (4-9 Mbyte/sec) I experience these annoying freezes, that last for about one minute then everything is back to normal. During these freezes the little red led stays lit and i can only move the mouse maybe click something on the taskbar, but nothing else. Also sometimes these freezes last longer and after a while a blue screen appears with a page fault or some other error.

I suspect hardware failure because i already formatted the drive on which my windows is installed multiple times and it didn't solve the problem.

Could it be my power supply not being able to handle the load or the HDD is giving in?

Specs:

PSU: LC-8460BTX 450 Watt ATX Switching Power Supply
CPU: Core 2 duo E4600 @ 2.4 Ghz
GPU: Geforce 9600GT
HDD: ST3250310AS ATA

I just want to know if anybody else experienced this and eventually which component do I have to replace.

Thanks in advance!

Been noticing this for a while: Whenever I'm off the computer during the day, I place it on sleep. At the end of the day, I completely shut down. Not sure if what I'm about to describe occurs shortly after waking up from sleep or shortly after boot up. Nonetheless, as I'm browsing, or in my email, all of a sudden everything freezes, can't move a thing, nothing responding. The arrow cursor turns ino a small blue circle, but he circle is not rotating. This lasts for about a minute or less, and then everything resumes as if nothing happened. What's happening?

A:No crash, everything just freezes for about a minute, then resumes?

Hard to say, slow hard drive from a Windows Index service, malware, browser plugin ... could be a lot of things. If it was me I would reinstall Windows ... but that might be extreme for you.

XP Pro MCE 2005 SP2.

Started last weekend, the whole system regardless of what I am doing (game, desktop, e-mail whatever) will just freeze and only half load windows.
If I am for example on a website, I won't be able to click links as Firefox becomes unresponsive, if I click on a program in taskbar it will load it's window with no contents.

It is not graphics related as I just installed lastest drivers and it still does it and even did it in between installation when no driver was installed!

I am willing to try anything that may fix it and will keep my files. I would ghost an image of drive C just I don't have a spare 60gb storage anywhere...

Also, whilst crashed, the num lock light will EITHER respond or not respond, also after the little freeze up it may or may not do what I was pressing whilst it was crashed all at once.
Could a repair of the OS be needed?

Thanks
Jack
 

A:Solved: XP Pro just freezes every minute or so for up to 20 seconds

Check task manager to see if svchost keeps spiking

It sounds like there is a problem with automatic updates.

Go to control panel / security center and disable automatic updates
Restart and see if that solves the problem.

If not, try disabling the automatic updater for your antivirus.

If you identify the culprit, manually go and get the updates. If none are available keep automatic updates off and keep trying daily. Once you get some updates downloaded and installed you can reenable automatic updates and then restart the computer and it should fix the problem.
It has been fairly common recently.

A friend of mine bought a IBM 6645-P1G from a guy who said he had surplus in a warehouse. It turns out the guy was a swindler so we can't get any answers from him about what the computer was used for before. The computer has 10gb HDD, 192MB of RAM, and is a PIII 733mhz. It is running Windows XP SP2 (I think PRO). The original CDROM drive was switched for a DVD-RW. Every time he boots up, the PC freezes. When I tested it out, it sometimes took as little as 30 seconds after windows finished booting up to freeze up. It would not respond at all. The 6645-P1G is one of the smallest desktop computers I have ever seen. I opened it up and everything is packed quite tightly inside. Is it possible it is overheating? Any suggestions as to why this would be happening would be appreciated. The problem is, I can't imagine that IBM made this computer so unstable that it freezes every bootup. So it has to be something that was added. I don't know what OS it originally came with, but the only other thing I can think of is the DVD-RW drive or added RAM. Any help with this situation would be appreciated as the owner can not use the computer at all at present.

Symptoms: the most obvious is the mouse and keyboard freezes (but still accepts entries into the buffer) for roughly 10 seconds at a time, maybe twice per minute. It takes a good 5 minutes just to power up, but at least it's faster since I ran autoruns and unclicked unneeded items. Usesd to be more like 10 minutes from power on to actually being able to talk to my computer! Really a drag. It's a Dell XPS M140 laptop, w/ 2GB memory and XPhome SP3, 80GB HDD with 28GBB still free. On attempt to defrag, the computer looks and says I don't need to, so I haven't actually defrag'd it. It recently had a bad DNSchanger Trojan infection, solved on BC in the malware forum. What I've done...After running OTC and MBA and Kaspersky and McAfee VSE to get the trojan DNS changers (4 entries) off my machine, guided by Kahdah at the malware forum of BC, it seems to be clean. I've rerun MBA a few times since that topic was closed, and the scans still are clean. I can once again go to Windows Updates, MalwareBytes, and other sites which the DNS changer had forbidden while infected. So, I've...- gotten the latest updates installed from Windows Update- installed the latest version and DAT of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i and run it- run autoruns and unchecked things not necessary.- run CCleaner and backup'd registry and cleaned up registry errors, and cleaned 140Meg of temp files- accessed systems/accessories defrag but it said I didn't need to defrag ...

Don't know where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, my computer is freezing up for around 10-20 secs and then unfreezes and works for also around 10-30 secs. I've checked the memory thinking it was something wrong with it, but found it was ok.

Can you please check if there is any Malware in my comp.

I had a previous post a long time ago, and we could not delete a orphan register key

1. Hijackthis cant delete the key
2. Combofix doesn't see the key or the file
3. MBAM doesn't see the run key or the file (it normally takes out this particular run key)

4. A batch file to export the run keys with regedit shows the key
5. regSrch.vbs for the strings 645fa89a & ulmoirbt.dll just show the run key
6. Bobbi Fleckman's Regsearch.exe looking for the same strings, also just shows the run key

7. A reg file merged with the registry cannot delete the run key
8. CFScript cannot delete the run key
9. CFScript cannot delete the file with either File:: or Rootkit:: (the file is just not seen)

Hi cochon,Welcome to BC HijackThis forum and sorry for the delay. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.Please refrain from making any changes to your system (updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might prolong handling your log and make the job for both of us more difficult.Tell me if you have done anything since previous post. Or you have run any other tools. Also tell me how is the current condition of your computer.

To get an idea about the current condition of you computer download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of just log.txt, no need for info.txt

Note 1: If you have difficulty finding the log, the log is in this folder: C:\rsit

Note 2: The tool takes not more than one minute to scan the system.You might want to save this page on your favorites, so you can find it again when you return.

Dear computer experts,

My computer developed a freezing problem. Basically, no matter what I'm doing, everything freezes for 5-10 seconds every minute or so.

Sound stops, video stops, but everything resumes as normal after the freeze.

The frequency and duration is really variable. Yesterday (after my computer was turned on for a long time) there was no problem with freezing. But after I restarted my computer, the freezing returned.

I was a victim of spyware for a long time. I finally got rid of AutoRun.exe worm and also a XP-23923424.exe (bunch of numbers) with the help of AVAST antivirus. I have run repeated boot scans and no more malware has been detected.

I ran the Windows Hard-disk error check, there are no errors with my hard drive.

Computer is almost 3 years old.
Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66GHZ)
1 ghz DDR3
Radeon 2900xt
Power supply is 600W I think.

Please help me. Any comment/feedback is appreciated. I will check constantly to see if any extra info is needed to resolve this.
Thanks in advance,
Brian

1. Check in msconfig and disable everything not needed to start at every boot up.
Start/Run and type in
msconfig

Hey there.

This doesn't happen every time I open a new tab, but on certain occasions. It seems really random, so I'm not sure if there's a specific trigger for it, but when I click on a link that opens in another tab, it'll lock the whole laptop for about a minute and then beep two or three times after that minute and start working again. Sometimes it happens even when it's just loading a website by typing it in via the search bar.

Is there any reason for this happening? I'm pretty sure I have the latest version of Chrome as I've checked, and I've also cleaned my cache, history etc.

If anyone's got any advice, that'd be great!

A:Chrome freezes for a minute when loading a site in new tab

Hello Microserfs,

Do you have many addons installed? You can check them by copying " chrome://extensions/ " in a new tab.

And when you go to the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete -> Start Task Manager) and right-click Chrome and select Go to process, how much Memory (fourth column) is it using?

Also, when you leave a browser like Chrome and FireFox running for a long time, it will become very slow and it will do as you described, so do you leave Chrome running for a long time? If so, restart it once in a while to speed it up.

Good luck and keep us posted,
Nommy

My computer constantly freezes. When I am running games (like Starcraft II) it will freeze for 30-40 seconds sometimes which is kind of a pain. I thought it may be an unstable overclock so i reset to defaults with no difference at all. I thought it may be a graphics card issue so I uninstalled the drivers and installed the latest ones from the site. I did the same thing with chipset drivers, LAN drivers, and any other driver I could think of. I ran a mem test for a few hours and had no reported errors.

Finally I clocked it back up a bit (to 3.2ghz instead of 4.0ghz) and ran OCCT to check for stability (ran prime95 for an hour or two and it seemed fine but I wanted a second opinion) and saw that it had a PSU test and decided to do that. After running it for 20 minutes or so I noticed a weird pattern in voltage/cpu usage. Anyone have any idea what this could mean? I have posted pictures of the weird issue below.

I'm using Window XP, and my computer freezes or BSOD everytime i play games.

I notice it only happens to more resource hungry game. It happens to Gears of Wars. I tried playing warcraft 3 and nothing happen.

Also the computer freezes sometimes when i'm watching video, either thru youtube or window media player.

I've attached my latest minidump and Hijackthis log.

Thanks in advance for helping!

Since we don't know about your hardware we have to guess over heating, Power or drivers/ patches.

So ever since I upgraded to a GeForce GTX 460, I've been getting these ~1min long freezes every time my PC just finished loading Windows (either after a cold boot or reboot).

What could be causing this?

EDIT: This didn't happen to me with my old Radeon HD 5770.

A:Windows freezes for over ~1 minute after each cold boot/reboot

I would suspect a driver issue fist thing. Check here for the July 2010 version: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Recently, I accidentally clicked on a few bad google links. Soon after, my computer started acting weirdly. I started receiving windows notices saying that my computer was infected with spyware. I could tell that these were fake and started scanning my computer with avast anti-virus. It was acting weirdly and then I saw that a window popped up called "vista anti-virus" i then googled this and found that this was a fake anti-virus that would install more viruses on my computer. So, I panicked and manually shut down my computer with the power button and booted into safe mode. I then scanned my computer with avast and spybot s&d. It removed as many trojans, spyware, and adwares that it could find, except a few, the only which of that i remember was a trojan called smit.fraud.

A:Cannot log into Safe Mode + XP freezes after a minute on normal boot

It's gonna take more then just SmitFraudFix. You should also download and run SuperAntiSpyware after you run SmitFraudFix in Safe Mode. SmitFraudFix needs to run in Safe Mode to be effective. Then run a full scan with SuperAntiSpyware when the computer reboots. After you do that download and isntall AVG 8 and do a fulls can with that as well. In the future be more careful when clicking "google" links, no porn is worth reformating a computer for.

Windows xp media center edition 2005 sp3

Hi, I was on here about a month ago and got some excellent help from one of you fine people on this site.

So after I clicked to "restart my computer after an adobe reader update", the next time I turned it on, the computer completely froze after a few minutes of booting up... After a few times of this occuring, I opened tasked manager to see what was going on and I noticed regsvr32.exe and regedit.exe appear in the process list JUST before the computer freezes...

I am unable to do any of the scans listed in the "read me" thread because of how it freezes so quickly... I will attempt to do them in safe mode (as I am able to get into safe mode without the freezing) and post them in this post, but I just wanted to get this thread up as soon as possible in hopes of a quicker reply.

I am not totally convinced it is malware, considering adobe reader updated may not have updated properly? Anyhow, thanks for taking the time to look at this and hopefully someone will be able to help me out!

Sorry about the double post (tried to edit first post but could not find the edit option!)

Anyhow I was able to complete both the DDS and GMER scan in SAFE MODE. I forgot to mention in my first post that I do have access to an install disc... CPU still freezing after few minutes of boot... I know doing all the scans in safe mode does not let you see all the processes running that could be causing this to happen, so hope... Read more

Hello,

anytime I try to play audio with whatever application (Foobar2000, Teamviewer, it doesn't really matter) directly after boot, the whole machine becomes completely unresponsive for about a minute and the hard disk explodes, until the sound finally starts playing.

What the heck, is it so complicated to play a sound, does it really need to load 1 GB of data for that???

A:Playing audio after boot freezes machine for roughly one minute

With only 4GB of RAM and a 64 bit OS, I suspect its more a memory problem. The sound is just a product of the system not responding, and its not actually a "sound" problem.

64 bit OS is really intended for systems with more than 4GB of RAM. A 64 bit OS uses more basic memory than a 32 bit OS and thus less RAM remains for programs.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, about 4 years old.

I've had this problem for a while now. Whenever I take my laptop inside my bedroom, unplugged or plugged in, doesn't matter, when I try to watch a YouTube video, 10-30 seconds in my laptop freezes and makes a loud buzzing noise from either my headphones or speakers (depends on what I'm using). If I leave it in my room it can take up to 1 minute to recover, while if I grab it and walk out of my room, and go to the living room it recovers immediately. My bedroom is 11-12 meters away from the router (I'm 99% sure this is an internet issue), and I have 3-4 bars of internet connection when inside it.
We also have an old computer (like 2008 or something, but the specs are pretty bad) and when we used to have it inside my bedroom it would never crash (we use wireless internet with the desktop as well, with a usb wireless adapter). Both are running the same operating system (Windows 7)

This has been a problem since the first time I tried to take my laptop in my room. Due to this problem, I am forced to do everything on my living room aka no privacy. I'm begging for a solution.
I did not buy this laptop, it was a gift from someone from what I remember. It used to have a hard drive which broke (had this problem with the first harddrive), so we changed to another harddrive, then that broke as well and now i'm using a Kingston SSD, and the problem is still here.

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 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.

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+
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4770
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.

Assistance needed badly,
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.

Previously, my firefox version was 33.0 and I've started to get some hanging and unresponsive script when I'm playing facebook games. Hence, I've updated my firefox to the latest one which is version 34.0.5 thinking it would solve my problem, but it is very much worse now.

It freezes at very random moments that I couldn't track what problem is it. I've resetted firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled back, start in safe mode, disabling each extension to see what causes the problem but to no avail. It even freezes when I'm ONLY loading a few (less than 5) tabs.

I have also did the following methods but nothing helps as well :
1. Updating Adobe and Shockwave Flash to the latest version
2. Option > General > unchecked the hardware acceleration
3. Disabling Protected Mode in Flash by adding 'ProtectedMode=0' to the "mms.cfg" file. (This solved the unresponsive shockwave script)

Please help me as I'm really desperate to solve this. Thank you

A:Firefox 34.0.5 freezes constantly

Reinstalling Fx rarely fixes anything, as nearly all problems are located in the Fx Profile, not in the program itself.

As you did not mention Hardware Acceleration, try turning it off, as that often solves odd problems:
It is found in the Fx Options/Advanced/General menu.

If that does not help, it is time to try a new profile. The best instructions are found at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a...ile_on_Windows . The site is being cantankerous as of this writing, so you might encounter difficulty in accessing the file.

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?
Please help, this is really irritating :(

These are my PC Specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz
RAM: 1014MB

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.

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.

So I'm having trouble with my PC, it constantly freezes. So far it mostly happens whenever I play a game involving steam - the two games that have frozen on me are counterstrike 1.6, and a game from steam called peggle. More recently the PC froze on me while I was online with just the Internet Explorer open. Steam was running in the backround though.. I'm not sure if Steam is the issue here or if I have something wrong with my PC. I have genuine Windows Ultimate.

Here is my Deckard Scan, I was unable to run the Panda Virus Scan because it is not supported in Vista. I am however currently running Nod32 with signitures (2821 20080124). Please look at my log, I am attaching Extra.txt. Thank you everyone who responds to this.

I've run scandisk, its only been here for about 3 months so its not ready to defrag. I've done anti-virus/spyware searches. I have no idea why this PC keeps freezing, it doesn't even happen when someone has 100 programs open either, it will just lock up without warning.

Could this be a problem, I'm looking at System Information and I see:

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...

Thanks in adavnce

I'm unsure what the issue is, I've done everything I can think of with dealing with this. I'm running vista off of my Dell Inspiron 5315, and every so often, at least once an hour it freezes for 30 seconds to a minute, sometimes 2-3 minutes and then goes back to normal. I'll have the task manager open and the cpu usage usually doesnt go past 5-10%. nothing has been replaced, no new drivers, no new burner, nothing. I've tried to run it at a lower resolution, does the same thing, i've ran numerous spyware/adware/malware programs, and nothing comes up. I've even wiped my harddrive and reinstalled vista, same problem. It's been doing this since I originally got my computer about a year ago. If anyone could help me out that would be great, it's highly irritating and its a pain with my business.

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?

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!

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.

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.

I've noticed that at random times my PC freezes and becomes unresponsive (the mouse moves though). The HDD light stays on and this all lasts for around 20 seconds sometimes longer.

I have Win7 Pro and disabled indexing and superfetch. I opened system monitor and when the freezing happens I dont see any changes in there. The hard drive is about 3 years old, could it be dying? My hard drive has only got 8MB cache could that be the culprit?

Here's the results of Crystalreports: ImageShack&#174; - Online Photo and Video Hosting

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Probably not the HD but a check disk would tell you. I suspect it is just writing to disk. I am unsure as to what apps you have installed or how you use them but 4 gigs of ram on win 7 64 bit isnt a ton and if you have HD apps like photoshop, or video editing apps writing may be it.

8Mb cache? cpou, HD, other???

Hello,

I'm recently experiencing constant freezes, almost like every 10 minutes.
I've tried setting to Disabled/off the power options with High performance profile to no avail, also read somewhere that Deamon Tools could cause this so I unninstalled it and deleted the sptd.sys file with the DuplexSecure tool, still the freezes appear randomly.

I also disabled my A: device (usb, SD/MMC, MS/Pro/Duo, CF/Microdrive).
Unpluged the DVD/CD unit.
Disabled AMD HighDefinition Device, read in the AMD forums that causes overloading when you already have another Audio device running.
Unninstalled Gamebooster.
Reinstalled ATI graphics driver, had 11.6, currently using 11.5 with no success.
Ran a MalwareBytes scan with no errors/infections whatsoever.
Tried system restore point couple times but the freezes show up eventually.
Ran Registry Cleaners with CCleaner and COMODO

So I'm here scratching my head thinking about more things I could do to prevent this but I've got anything else, so please help me out with this

Attaching System Health Report and Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2, everything it's in Spanish so bear with me please

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.

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.

HP a6200n, AMD 64x2 5000+, 2gb RAM, ATI HD 3600 1GB

I've attached a zip file with 4 fairly close BSODs. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or a memory issue. I've noticed my system is more stable with only the one 2GB memory chip in it, when I have 4 or 5 gigs, it became more unstable. Pretty sure my other 2 chips burnt out or became corrupted. My system used to have Windows Vista 32bit, and I reformatted and installed Win 7 Ultimate 32bit. It gave me issues of restarting before the switch, and it's giving me issues still.

Just tired of it, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the BSODs or freezes. I could be watching a movie, and it'll be fine and then BSOD in the middle of the movie. Other times it'll freeze before the movie starts. Or I can click on the start bar, but as soon as I move the mouse pointer over a file with a list, it'll freeze or BS.

Surprisingly, it actually ran perfect for about a 3 week period. I was cautiously pleased, and then it reverted back to it's prior unstable self. Any assistance or insight would be appreciated.

Hi! I am new to this forum, however am not new to computers and I know my way around them more than the average person. This time though, I am completely stumped.

I've had this computer for over a year now and have been steadily playing video games on it. This all started last Thursday, at around 9pm. I was playing TF2 with some buddies and it just suddenly froze. I thought nothing of it since it IS a laptop and I am running a game on it, so it's probably bound to happen sometime. But upon rebooting, it froze when I opened Ventrilo. And then one more time on the login screen of Windows. I left it and went to bed.

It continued more on Friday, but then I booted in Safe Mode and system restored onto a save that was 5 days earlier. It still froze.

Earlier today, Saturday, I didn't pay attention to the boot screen but it took me to a debug menu I'm guessing. It scanned my files and everything was fine. It actually didn't freeze until an hour later.

And now I'm on Safe Mode with Networking on, typing this because I have no idea what to do anymore.

I've heard that my hard-drive might be dying, my Windows files are corrupt, over-heating (Although I don't believe it's overheating since it freezes when it's not running games too) and that my laptop parts are dying down.

I am on an Alienware M11x with Windows 7 64Bit Home Premium (No disc drive, so I don't believe I can reformat, unless there's another way).

Hi, I've been having a problem with Firefox for several days now. It freezes up all the time. I downloaded waterfox and that does the same. Do I need to update something? I also use Opera (no problems with that) but Firefox has all my links and I don't know how to get them to use in another browser.

Thank you

A:Firefox constantly freezes

To use your links in another browser,you need to save the links on your computer ,first.
This is how you do that : Open Mozila Firefoxand use this combination ctrl+shift+B to open your bookmarks.
Then click Import and Backup>Export bookmarks to HTML - this will let you save your bookmarks in HTML format.
Save the file on your desktop to find it easily.

Then open the browser ,that you want to use those links in, for example -Internet explorer.
Click File>import and export>import from a file>tick "favorites"... Then select the file that you have saved on the desktop and click- OK. The bookmarks will be added to Internet explorer and you'll be able to use them without even restarting the browser.
Good luck

Greetings,

I have a computer here at work that constantly freezes or reboots on it's own.
OS is Win 98 127MB RAM Pentium 3 (ancient POS)...NO ANTI VIRUS (thanks boss)

One of my co-workers went on the internet to a car forum and I believe came across a virus in one of the advertisements on the page. He claimed that he always goes on that site at home without any problems.
However, there is a problem with the PC at work.

I installed ComboFix and Spybot S&D. Every time I run the program the progress bar will run, but the actual program will not run.
The OS is too old for Malwarebytes.

I managed to run a HijackThis log and was wondering if anyone is able to figure out what was installed or what is causing the constant reboots/lock ups.

Here is the log created today:

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

Hey

I've had the same problem for a while now, and is extremely annoying

My laptop constantly hangs, freezes etc when on chrome, firefox etc and when playing videos on vlc from the hard drive, it constantly stutters buffers etc. However I noticed when playing the same video from an external hard drive, the video plays fine. This leads me to believe its a hard drive problem.

I have tried restoring my computer and reinstalling windows etc, but the problem keeps coming.

anyone able to help?

thanks

John

A:Laptop constantly hangs, freezes, help?!

Hello,

Freezing, in general, is a hardware issue and usually heat related. Software issues usually throw error messages.

1) How old is the computer? Do you clean it regularly? clear the vents and fans etc.
2) Are your video card drivers updated?

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, everyone. Please review my log. My computer has become impossible to work on. It freezes up regardless of whether I'm working online or offline. It also gives me an error messages, something about the non-responding programs or applications. Please help. Thanks,

Hi all, I'm new to these forums and hoping someone can help me out.
let me start out with the pc I built

core 2 duo 6700 w/ coolmaster fan (it stays cool)
ECS Nf650islit-A motherboard
Western digital 200g hard drive (did a full diagnostic on this it passed)
4 gig of gskill ddr2 800 ram (did full memtest on these they passed)
600w power supply
dual 7600gs nvidia cards in sli
benq dvd rw cd rw drive
Windows xp service pack 2 fully updated (I legally own this so its not an illegal copy of windows

Things i have done so far:
I swapped memory sticks to see if one was bad, ran memtest everything passed
did diagnostic on the hard drive it passed. I recently updated all drivers for everything on the pc (except my benQ dvd cd drive, these i cannot find)
i also downloaded and reflashed new bios for mobo.
Re formated HD and did completly fresh install

The problem is when i try and install new things, (granted I Installed windows without a problem) it always freezes then eventualy reboots. more specificly I installed Battlefield 2 sucsessfully with the cd's but when i try and run the patch to update the game it freezes and reboots every single time, I thought it may just be the patch but it also freezes and reboots when i was trying to install Microsoft frame work 1.1 downloads as well with direct x 9c. what really drives me nuts is it worked fine for a while before windows fully updated, then it started messing up and freezing again recently.

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.

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.

My computer is custom made
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.
1.5 tb of harddrive, ATI RADEON HD 4800 series graphics card, and a network adapter pci (since my motherboard network lan is not working)

If anyone needs more information do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for the help

Is this problem with the onboard LAN or the PCI NIC? Have you updated the drivers?

I was using the Beta since Feb. with no problems whatsoever. When the time limit was up I installed the RC1. I did a freesh install, not an upgrade. Ever since the install, my display will freeze at random and the pc requires a hard reboot. I initially assumed it was a video driver issue. First, I updated all my drivers to the latest, but it kept happening. So I tried the driver for Vista, but it kept happening. Well, gaming and watching video is the main thing I do with my pc, so as is it is useless. I disabled the video driver so I could download another OS but it still freezes, even with no video driver.
I can't stay unfrozen long enough now to download a linux distro, and my XP is no good becasue it doesn't come with the drivers I need to get online, so I can't install it and update the drivers, so basically I'm screwed.
I have searched online for hours, but no real answers. Its frustrating as hell that the beta was working flawlessly, then they made me ugrade, now its broken.

My new Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-17t constantly hangs on shutdown.

At first I thought it might connect to the Cisco any lie, since this appeared in the Event Viewer several times.
After I deleted it went well for a short time, but now the problem occurred again, only this time there is nothing to see in the event viewer.

Can someone help me what's wrong and how I can fix the problem myself?

Friendly greeting smirou

A:Tecra Z50-A-17t constantly freezes on shutdown

The notebook was preinstalled with Win 7 64bit system.
I assume you are still using this system, I would recommend you to repair the system using the windows own automatic repair function.

Boot the notebook and press F8.
Now you should be able to access the Advanced menu.
Here you can choose between different options.

You can choose the ?Last known good configuration? option.
You can also choose the first option ?Repair your computer? which will open the next window where you could access to the Startup Repair feature.
There you could choose option ?Startup Repair?

Otherwise it would be advisable to recover the notebook back to factory settings just to check if its an simple system problem or maybe hardware related issue

Help Needed Badly,My computer freezes constantly. I cannot get into Safe Mode using F8 on restart. I've had the computer in for service four times and it still freezes when returned. When it's in the shop, it supposedly runs fine w/out freezing for almost two days under similar operating conditions. It especially freezes when running SuperAntiSpyware or when online. I've disabled all external hard drives and other devices, all running on USB, but it still freezes. I have an ASUS A8V-VM SE MB w/2Gig DDR 400 SDRAM, Seagate 2T 5900rpm Hard Drive, Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS video card, Ralink RT73 WiFi, Logitech K350 USB Keyboard and Kensington USB Expert Mouse Pro and Behringer UCA 202 USB Sound adapter. I also have 2 Seagate FreeAgent USB Hard Drives but both are disabled. I would appreciate any suggestions as to what is causing this computer to freeze constantly, Every 5-10 minutes usually.

hi!

recently i've been having some problems, and i think it's my video card.
sometimes when i play different games or watch videos on my computer, the whole system freezes up for a second or few, and then comes back up. the sound also gets distorted, as if the whole system is crashing. most of the times everything comes back after a few seconds, but sometimes it crashes and i have to reboot. the whole system is new, and i didn't have this problem before.

my specs:

AMD phenom IIx4 920 2.8Ghz
Asus m4a78-e motherboard
4GB ram
Sapphire 4870HD 1GB Vapor-x (video card)
windows vista home premium 64bit
 

A:Help! my video card constantly freezes up

OK, some more info is needed. Post the brand and wattage of your pw supply. Next post your system temps and voltages. Since this is an asus board, you can use asus probe or check your temps/voltages in the bios.

In addition to the above, download and run the hard disk maker's utility for checking the hd.

First off, if I have posted this in the wrong forum I apologize. This seemed however, to be the most likely place to ask such a question. Second, my problem:

Over the past couple months, I've noticed that my Media Center will freeze when I'm trying to watch a program. I'll get about 75% of the way through the show when the entire MC will lock up on me. The computer itself is fine as I'll be able to shut down Media Center via the task manager. It just really grinds my gears because I'll be in the middle of a show and I can't finish watching. If I restart Media Center and attempt to fast forward to the point where the program locked up, it'll just lock up again. I will not be able to access those final few minutes (10-15 minutes) of a TV show. I don't receive any specific errors from Media Center, I just get a blue screen that says 'No TV signal'. This can't be right because I'd been watching the show all along. I don't have any issues with live TV, it's just recorded programs.

I'm sorry I can't give much more information than that- if you need to know something more, feel free to ask me. For the record I run: Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit), 400 gb Hard Drive (250+ gb free), 2 gb memory, no spyware/adware/malware or viruses.. my system is astonishingly clean. All my Windows Updates are up to date, my MC software and codecs are up to date.. I can't understand why this is happening. Any he... Read more

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro (not a clean install) and have had an issue where Netflix (on the website, not the Metro app) freezes a few minutes into the video. There's no error message or anything - the page just turns black and remains so until the page is refreshed (occasionally I will get a message about Silverlight crashing and asking to restart it, but it depends on the browser). Then the video will proceed to play for a few more minutes until the process repeats and it freezes again. I have tried IE, Chrome, Firefox... Same story. I have re-installed Silverlight several times. I've checked to make sure my video drivers are updated. HELP!!!

Hey b,

I've been having the same issue. When I try watching a Netflix movie on the website the whole browser crashes after 30 seconds or so. I too upgraded to Windows 8 and reinstalled silverlight. I guess we're stuck using the Metro app until a fix comes along. Let me know if you came up with a solution.

Thanks!

I assembled this computer exactly 8 days ago. All parts bought new.

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. (I should mention after it froze if I didn't hold the pwr button down until it shut off I would have to wait a few minutes and it would shut itself off)

Needless to say I can't do much to try and figure out the problem.
After doing some research, I guessed it could be one of 3 things: psu, mobo or ram.

Hi,

I'm posting from a mobile phone so forgive me if the grammar is weird.

I have a computer where windows 7 freezes constantly. It can happen during boot up, with in five second.F's of starti&ng up windows it five minutes.

I have tested EVERYTHING I can think of. I have replaced the psu, tested the ram with memtest, replaced the HD, replaced the hard drive, updated the BIOS, reformatted and did a fresh install. It is still crashing. I also cleaned it from top to bottom.

I thought maybe there was an update to address my issue even get thru updating before it crashes.

My system specs are as follows:

Athlon Phenom x4 3.2 ghz processor
Asus formula III Gamers republic mother board
6 gigs of mushkin ram
1 TB western digital caviar black 7200 rpm HD

Corsair ax850 modular power supply
Antec 1200 case

What else can I provide for help? Again, since I'm on my phone its really hard to navigate but ill do my best to provide it. I've about given up.

Thank you so much for any help you guys can provide.

A:windows 7 ultimate 64 bit freezes constantly

Here are some things to try.

Have you checked the temperature on your processor? It could be heat related if the fan is not installed properly or working properly.

Try removing one memory stick at a time and see what happens.

What is the exact make of your memory? Do you know it is compatible with your board? What speed are you running the memory at?

Are you overclocking? If so, go back to normal settings.
