Lagging and freezing constantly

Q: Lagging and freezing constantly

Hoping for your help once again. I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 laptop. Operating system is Windows 7. Google chrome is my internet browser. I bought it new a year and a half ago. In the past week it has started to lag and freeze constantly. It also takes forever for it to load when it has been shut down. Please help asap. My daughter is going to leave for college in a few says and this laptop is (hopefully) going with her.

Hi all, first post on the forums :D

Ok, first out, the problem is...LAG. Everything i do results in massive amounts of lag. I cant even open internet explorer without my mouse dragging across the screen in choppy little spasms. Ive lived with it for about 6 months but i've finally decided to try and get some help about it. I was going to take it to a computer shop to get fixed, but thats kind of out of the question considering im only 15, have no source of income, and...You know how repair shops are - Expensive.

Anyway, i'm running Windows XP SP1
Pentium 4 3.2ghz CPU
1GB DDR 3200 RAM (Single stick)
320GB SATA2 HDD
128MB AGP8x Nvidia MX4000 GFX
Onboard AC'97 Audio.

Now with those specs, my comp should definately not lag while opening internet explorer.
In my task manager, i have 26 Processes running, CPU usage averages about 3% (while typing this, anyway).
Commit charge is 562M / 2462M (not sure what that is, but thought i'd put it in anyway).

Back to the problem:
I can't even play a single song on this heap of junk without it skipping VERY noticably. Games like counter-strike seem to run fine most of the time but hit huge lag spikes about every 10 minutes (while i still have good ping, all FPS lag). Playing guild wars is just constantly choppy, which it shouldn't be because i have well over the recommended requirements. Ive run a full Ad-aware scan, and full system AVG scan - All clean.

I just have no idea what the problem could be. Pretty much everyth... Read more

Throughout the day, my cores will both be up to 100%, making my computer extremely laggy and I have to shut it down with the "off" button on my laptop in order to "restart." This happens randomly throughout the day when I am doing nothing but surf the web and talk on MSN or Skype. I've run a ton of antimalware/registry cleans and it doesn't fix it. My hard drive seems to be constantly running and the fan on my laptop is always on.

What is going on? It's a new computer, barely a year or two old!

Thanks.

During the last few days..maybe a little longer, my computer has been sluggish or just plain slow! I'm having a problem with programs and IE or Firefox freezing as well. AVG was run in safe mode and there wasn't much there. Plus it didn't help the problem any. I recently reformatted and reinstalled XP on this system due to a bad virus. None of the anti-virus programs I ran afterward found any problems. Now tho, I can't run TrendMicro Housecall online. It gets to the point of saying it's opening the program and it just runs and runs with no progress. CWShredder found nothing during it's scan. As far as I can guess, it's either a virus somewhere that I havent found or some program hogging serious resources. I'd appreciate any help!

I have been running IE8 for quite a while, and in the last few weeks it has been having problems. It has been freezing and lagging out a lot. On some sites I visit, like ebaumsworld.com , it will not click on tabs to advance through pictures and such things, Looking in Task Manager will show multiple instances of IE running, one with 100MB-300MB of memory being used.

I can't upgrade to IE9 because I use XP Home. And because of some other software to change the USB mouse poll rate for games, I cannot upgrade to SP3. I have a dual core E7300 Core 2 Duo and 4 GB of ram, and IE8 used to always run fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it twice with no change.

Firefox and Chrome function smoothly on sites where IE8 used to and is now lagging.

Are there any settings in XP I could change that will help this? I don't know what could have changed, but my Avira, MalwareBytes, and Spybot S&D aren't finding anything unusual, and I clear the Temporary Internet Files now and then also.

A:IE8 is freezing and lagging out lately.

Firstly, since IE changed to a tabbed interface, it's normal to have several iexplore.exe processes running (one for each web-page or tab that's open, plus one for the main browser engine). The amount of memory each one uses varies with the amount of data on each page - though 300MB does seem unusually high (a page on this forum is around 80MB).

Malware targetted specifically at IE cannot be ruled out at this stage but we aren't permitted to deal with that here. Please post here (but read any relevant "stickies" before posting): Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help - Tech Support Forum

As I said in a title,I have a problem with lagging and freezing on my PC.
What is the most interesting thing,it is ok after fresh install,but after a month or two(sometimes more,sometimes less,depends on a PC usage),win 7 starts to lagg.I mean,it stops on a second or two without any obvious reason,and then continues to run.
In the beginning it is not such a big problem,but after one or two motnhs more,is starts to happen every 10-15 seconds,and last a bit longer.It lasts for 3-5 seconds,and it is pretty annoying.At the very end,when whole system is more lagging then running(tough,it does have it's moment when everything runs like a charm for few hours),when I quit Firefox,Firefox.exe process continues to run,and at the same moment when I press that damn red cross button,it starts to lagg and blocks my system so much that even task manager is unaccessible.Sometimes it releases after 10-12 seconds,and sometimes the only way to pass through is to log off,and log on again,or just to start logging of,and if I hit cancel in the right moment,which means while it tries to force ending of processes,everything is fine even without logging off.Oh,and of course,one more way to unblock the system is to restart it.So,my only way to get out the Firefox without later need to log of or restart the system is to open task manager,and kill Firefox from there,and there is no problem then.
Just imagine when you doing something,and you have to keep holding your mouse button for 5 seconds in the mid... Read more

A:Lagging and freezing?

You listed quite of bit of things that you tried so if I repeat, sorry.

First, keep your hands off the registry. You may be causing the problem, yourself by trying to "fix" the registry. I have been using a computer since Windows 98, never used a Reg cleaner, etc, never had a problem. Most here will agree with this statement.

Run Anti Virus regularly and download and use malwarebytes.

Make sure you are not continually downloading programs, you do not want to overload the computer.

XP has just started to lag or freeze while working on the desktop. For instance if I have two IE windows open at the same time or IE and Outlook and then click on a link, not only does it take a second or two to make the click sound and follow the link but when I move the cursor to the taskbar and try to switch windows all I get is a resize cursor and have to wait a few seconds before I can switch.

I am unable to run games etc becoz the whole puter slows down too much and even surfing the net is almost impossible. I have used Task Manager to see what is hogging the resources but whenever I click a link etc it freezes also so I can't see which process is maxing out although the graphs show spikes of 100% CPU usage after the freeze up stops.

I have an Athlon XP 1500+ with 512 Mb Ram and shouldn't be slowing at all. I've been running XP for the last 8 months with no problems whatsoever. I've tried a reinstall and it seemed to fix the problem for a while but then it came back.

Any ideas?

A:Computer Is Lagging And Freezing

Hello heineckenguy and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.The HijackThis forum deals exclusively with virus and malware issues. HijackThis does not have the capability to analyze performance, hardware or application issues. For these types of issues I would suggest posting to the Windows XP Home and Professional forumThe techs in that forum specialize in matters pertaining to the operating system, performance and applications. When posting to any other forum, do not post a HijackThis log or the post will simply be moved back to this forum for infection analysis. That is what HijackThis is used for and that is what we specialize in here in this forum.Also, when posting in any other forum for assistance, give as much detail as possible regarding any issues that are occurring. The more information they have, the better the techs can analyze the issue and make any recommendations for resolving it.Cheers.OT

Ok now I know you're probably already thinking oh great another thread about some noob who's computer keeps freezing.

Firstly here's my hardware specifications.

Processor: Celeron 2.00ghz CPU.
RAM: 1 Gig.
Virtual Paging File: 1918mb of hard drive space is currently allocated for the paging file. (This is what windows recommends).
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Graphics Card: (Gamebuster) ATI Radeon 9200se (128mb).

Well here goes my problem.

Recently I reinstalled Windows XP Service Pack 2 onto my computer and a few patches and the usual things. My computer was running fine then the other day I decided to install Winamp the latest version 10th Anniversary Edition. Well it would seem after installing it my computer now suffers from a severe lagging and stuttering and freezing problem. I did a complete uninstall of Winamp and left out some components based on some information from the Winamp forums to no avail.

Whenever I play music in Winamp it suffers from severe lagging and so too does my system now. I have tried.

A similar problem happened to me when a new program is being installed in my computer.

Get ready your Windows XP CD and do a Windows Repair. That's my best bet. Might solve your problem cause it solved mine.

Im sorry if this has been answered already but I have gone through dozens of posts related to my issue and no help yet.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on an HP desktop 500GB hard drive, 3GHz dual core processor, 3GB of RAM.

A few days ago my computer started lagging and freezing while doing the simplest of tasks. I dont know when it will freeze and when it does I dont know how long it will take to catch up to itself and start working again or if I will have to kill and restart.

I have run two full virus scans that have come up clean, I have run CHKDSK with no issues, and I have done a full clean install of the OS and the problem persists. The CPU usage on the system ranges from 2% - 5% and there are no processes running that are out of theordinary. I am only running 1 antivirus program (Microsoft Security Essentials).

I don't know what is doing this to my system and I don't want to buy a new hard drive if I dont have to.

It's reading as a hardware failure on my end, though my debugger also encountered a symbol error, so my report could be inaccurate. I'm not showing any specific drivers out of date but you have a massive number of dump files there and I only viewed a couple of them.
However the disk hardware failure appears to be a common theme here.
Perhaps one of the more experienced guys will have better input, but I'm thinking bad hard disk, or hard disk controller.

This started yesterday or today, can't recall, every couple of seconds, my computer freezes, and I can't do anything for like 1 -10 minutes. i'ts unbearable and it's driving me crazy!

At first the time between freezes was like 2 - 10 minutes, but it slowly got worse, now it happens every 5 seconds, and I tried everything.. I restarted the computer, turned it off and let it cool for a while then turned it on again, I deleted some things and freed some space, I ran troubleshoot, but nothing helped.. it still freezes..

I'm sure that it's not becuase that my RAM have too little free space(9.96 GB free space out of 111 GB), becuase it always been like that, and it didn't make any problems for me.

Although, when I turned the computer off for like 20 minutes to let it cool, it got better when i turned it on again, but after a while the freezes came back, so it could be a heat problem.

Note: a while before I got an alarm that said that my windows isn't genuine, it deleted my windwos anti-virus, turned my screensaver black, and on the right-bottom there's a message that says that my windows insn't genuine. Everytime i turn on the computer it asks me to get the genuine version, but i click remind me later, and occasionally it warns me that I don't have an anti-virus and I should get the genuine version. but I ignore all of those alarms, becuase untill now, it didn't say anything about my windows version. But I don't think that it have anything to do with the freeze problem... Read more

A:My computer keeps lagging and freezing

Is this a Laptop or a Desktop? A computer that freezes is either overheating or has a failing Power Supply Unit (desktop) If a desktop, shutdown the computer and open the side, clean out all dust and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Look at the label for the PSU. Report the Make, Model # and Wattage. Restart the computer and make sure all fans are spinning.
As for non-genuine Windows you will need to purchase a Windows key and activate it again. If your computer came pre-installed, I would talk to whomever installed it for you. If you, yourself installed Windows, then you will need to get a disc that has not been activated. We cannot help you with circumventing Windows Activation.

Hello, my friend gave me their laptop to fix and I thought it was no big deal since the only problem they said they had was lag.I have downloaded CCleaner, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes, and SuperAntiSpyware onto it and done scans to clean it up. There was no harmful malware or viruses on it and I did a System File checker and everything seems to be in order. I've also uninstalled a lot of 3rd party software from the manufacturer and other unnecessary programs and that sped it up a little bit, but it still lags or freezes at startup and doesn't respond when trying to open up new programs sometimes. I'm not sure what's wrong with it now. It's a 2 year old Windows 7 Acer Aspire 5532 laptop with plenty of room to spare on it (101gb free of 136gb).Thank you in advance.

ok so im gonna be as detailed as i can about my problem, yesterday i decided to clean up my pc a bit to gain more memory and to make it run a bit faster. so i started uninstalling unused programs and did disk clean up clearing out whatever i didnt use. then i started ending processes cause i had way to many that i didnt recognize and i ended the cleanup with a disk defrag that took all day. now im not sure exactly where i went wrong trying to retrace my steps in my mind but i did end the process of taskeng.exe cause i saw there was two of them. well of course my windows totally disappeared leaving just my background wallpaper, though everything usually pops back up, it didnt this time so i was forced to do a hard reset while i was still defragging. which might of been a bad idea cause now everything is messed up. im not sure exactly where i messed up, i may have ended one of the default processes my computer needs to run properly, or maybe restarting when i was still defragging, or it could have been ending the taskeng.exe process that did it.

now everything is lagging and freezing, including windows. i would open a folder navigating through and it would take a long time to load all the way even freezing to the point of making it "not responding". it also freezes my mpc player while watching something for about 10 seconds then starting again and freezing everyone once in a while also to the point of "not responding" until it goes b...

Hello sho9un1 and welcome to the forums

The reason for your problems is probably due to the ZeroAccess rootkit infection on your computer. I am currently still training for my malware removal degree and won't be able to help you remove the infection manually but instead, I recommend that you do a clean install:

Hello, for the past few weeks I've been having problems with my PC.

1. My pc freezes randomly (not only when i'm using a lot of cpu). It often happens with a browser open (none specifically - firefox, opera both do it). If i kill their processes my pc unfreezes. My pc has a 2.8GHz cpu and 1GB of ram and normally is very smooth with no problems.

2. When i play games, the arrow keys lag or get stuck. If i play a racing game i could press forward and left, 10 seconds later the car would go forward and left. The keys are not getting stuck, i've tried 2 different keyboards. I even ordered a usb keyboard but i get the same faults.

This morning i pressed the 4 on the keypad and it got stuck, and that was out of game.

Apart from those 2 faults, my pc runs well. I've virus scanned, boot virus scanned, checked my pc with hijackthis, used keylogger detectors - nothing. But i'm wondering if it is a keylogger which hasn't been detected. The programs that have frozen are firefox, opera and google desktop sidebar, which are all connecting to the internet. Maybe it's trying to send info over the internet using these programs?

I also want to add, when windows tells me to download updates with that yellow shield icon in the taskbar, i click on it and then download, but the shield disapears. I can't remember if it's supposed to do that but i'm sure you could see it download.

First one I had this problem. Second one, I hadn't. But other problems developed so I reinstalled XP. And that's the third, thats when it came back. Now, I tried installing it AGAIN, the fourth, and the problem remains. The problem goes:

It's most noticable when running video or audio files. If I do, and at the same time browse folders, move files, delete files, open files, create files, install programs, the audio and video starts to stutter, the word "Stairs" pronounced by some person in a movie, comes out "Ss-t-t-t-aaaa-i-rr-r-r-rr-s-s-". I notice large CPU-spikes whenever this happens.

This is a problem from the beginning of the XP-installation, not a developing problem.

Okay- how about spyware?

Unaccountable spikes in activity would seem to indicate "something" is going on. IF the repeated reinstalls don't help, then consider a hardware problem.

Make it easier on yourself and do this:
Note the time con the computer clock when you're having the spikes: then>

Start> Run> type in eventvwr

Do this on each the System and the Applications logs:
[1]. Click to open the log>
[2]. Look for the Error>
[3] .Right click on the Error> Properties>
[4]. Click on Copy button, top right, below the down arrow >
[5]. Paste here (Ctrl V)
Errors are time coded.

The Information Events are normal. They log on what's taking place on the system. The Warnings usually indicate either a temporary problem or a repeating one. The Errors are exactly that> something is happening that should not be in normal activity.

Take a look and see what you have.

Hello everyone!

Recently I've been struck by random lagging and freezing, and hard resets are required.
I usually know hoe to fix my PC if anything goes wrong, but I'll admit that I can't figure it out this time and I need some suggestions.

The freezes come at random and I can't see any pattern in it. My configuration is:
- Win 7 Ultimate SP1 (I have all the latest updates, in case it was OS issue)
- AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE running at stock
- Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 (rev. 1.0) mobo
- Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX (4 gb) ram running at stock
- Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 running at stock, driver version 320.18
- Firefox 21.0

I have run chkdsk with no issues, sfc with some issues that were corrected (but didn't help, I am running it again to check if the OS is self-destructive), Memtest86 with no problems, and IntelBurnTest (5 runs at regular) with no issues.
The CPU gets no hotter than 54 degr. C under full stress and I've rebuilt the case a bit to get the best air flow. It was kinda ridiculous how the fans in the cabinet were oriented.

I am beginning to think it's software or driver related, but it has been really difficult to provoke the freezings.
Do you have any suggestions? Do you need any more info?

Thx in advance.

P.S.: I kinda hope it's hardware related. That way I have an excuse for the lady to buy some SSD, a new mobo, and RAM :D

A:Random lagging and freezing

Remove unused programs
Install and run antispyware software
Free up wasted space with Disk Cleanup tool
Defragment your hard disk drive

Disconnect unused network connections:

-Click Start, and then click My Computer.
-On the Tools menu, click Disconnect Network Drive.
-Select the network drives that you no longer need, and then click OK.

ALSO

Stop Unwanted startup programs:

-Start > Run > write msconfig > Click on StartUp tab
-Deselect the programs you want to stop


-Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.

-Once that temp folder is open and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.

-It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.

-If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

-Repeat the steps with c:\windows\temp

-After you're done with both temp folders, restart the computer.

My computer has been randomly freezing when playing games (CS:S and BF2). The game will freeze, then the sound will start rapidly looping.

I'm also getting a problem with small lag spikes, in online and offline mode, on CS:S.

It's really annoying, and i've been looking for a solution ever since.

I've seen this similarly happen to my pc before, and if it's the same thing (which I never found out what it was, my solution back then was to just reformat), then I don't have much time.

Yesterday, while browsing on firefox, my browser started to massivly slow down, and noticed it wasn't the only thing. So I restarted and it was still slow, and startup was a bit slow. So I've restarted in safe mode to run my AVG, it stopped half way through(assuming halfway, it was scanning some system32 stuff and stopped around there. So I rebooted again into safemode with networking to download spybot S&D and run Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes detected nothing, well, nothing until it froze about an hour and three minutes in. I took the time and ran HijackThis for you guys.

If this problem is similar to the problem I had once before, my computer will become slower each time it starts up until it freezes just by trying to log-in. Even worse, before that I'll loose the ability to run .exe programs. I hope you can help and I appreciate any time you can spare.

I've recently had to do a system restore due to a virus, and I've done so in the past with excellent results. This time, however, I don't think I quite got rid of the bug.

I'm on campus internet, and their server often tries to force Symantec Endpoint on me, so I've run it and my usual AVG Free for a few weeks, and I still managed to get such a bad infection I had to restore. Now I don't recall what the name of the bug was, but I remember I was getting a lot of pop-ups from Symantec as my computer began to slow down and freeze.

Now, after re-installing everything, the sound doesn't work on Skype. The Alarm Clock freeware I use doesn't alarm, and when I uninstalled, then reinstalled, it said "File Access Denied" upon reaching 100%. Then, when I click 'OK', it says, "Setup was not completed. Please correct the problem and run Setup again." It creates a folder with a single internet shortcut, but doesn't install. I've never had that problem before. As for my browser, I use Mozilla Firefox. It runs painfully slowly, and takes up to two minutes to open on the screen. For the most part, it runs smoothly, but there are some websites (like Yahoo! mail and the AIM screenname service) that it loves giving me error messages for. Something about the attempt to connect was interrupted.

My problem is that my computer keep lagging every few seconds, the video (entire display, including mouse) freezes and audio buzzes.

I can go for a while without anything going wrong on my computer, but once it starts to lag, it happens for about 10 seconds on and off.

This happens almost randomly, the freeze is about a half a second and happens one after the other.

I have looked at many different articles describing problems similar, but all of them are talking about, just a video lag, or just an audio, etc. None of those solution have helped me.

At first I thought it might be my ram, maybe it was faulty, but i have switched the two 4gb sticks around and tested both so I know its not the ram.

So that leaves, Processor, Mobo, and Graphics card.

I built this computer completely by myself and it was my first build. I had a lot of issues building it and I could have messed something up. I have warrantys on all three components so I can bring any of them in, I just dont want to waste my time, or theirs by replacing something that doesnt have a problem.

Could anyone shed some light at all on what might be the problem?

A:Computer keeps lagging/freezing every few seconds.

Well, the bad news is that it could be anything from the problems you mentioned to the PSU or OS files. Try the simple test first. Open an elevated command prompt (click start, type cmd in the search bar, right click on the entry that appears and select run as administrator. ) Provide admin permission and copy/paste sfc /scannow in the window and press enter. It will take just a few minutes. It will check system files and attempt to correct any that are wrong. Next test the ram with memtest86 for 7 passes (best to check overnight), the CPU is possible but not likely. You can test it with Prime95 watch that test very closely with a good temp monitorting program like core temp. You can use Furmark to test your GPU, watch the temps on that also. Also, please completely fill out your system specs. The computer listed in your system specs looks to be a laptop. I don't think that is the computer in question. It would help us to know the hardware you have. What size, brand of PSU do you have?

I'm having an issue with extreme slowing down of my VAIO laptop at times, and was hoping someone could provide some way of diagnosing the problem.

My belief is that it is driver related. I believe this because I received a single blue screen that flashed too quickly for me to read, but upon sending the error to Microsoft on reboot they reported it to be a driver problem (with no other detail). The intense lagging began some time last night, and the blue screen occurred this evening. The lagging as continued to happen all day.

The slowing down occurs after using my computer for a little while, I'd say about an hour or more. The computer becomes so lagged that there is no response from any application, and it stays this lagged for roughly 2-7 minutes or so. After waiting it out, I finally get a response and can begin closing the open applications. I have to be quick though, because it will give me just 20 seconds or so of non-lag time and then go back to the slowness. It doesn't matter how many or which applications are open. I don't think it's a memory issue, since it doesn't matter how many or which applications are open, and I don't see significant memory usage in the task manager.

I would like to know what my computer is doing at the point when this freezing is occurring. Is there an application that can monitor this somehow? I'm unsure if the lack of response from applications would also affect the monitoring application, preventing me from finding the problem.

Hello everyone,
Just ran across this website on Google and I hope there is someone who can help me out with my computer problem!
The problem is that since today when I boot up Windows 7 it will glitch, lag and sometimes freeze. I have tried everything that I know of so I hope there is someone out here that can help me resolve my issue. I did see that Windows updated yesterday, so I removed those updates thinking that was the source of the issue but that didn't help.
When I for instance try to play a video in VLC it will stop, glitch, miss audio for a few seconds and it will skip back and forth. Also browsing through folders is incredibly slow. 
I can't find a restore point, for some reason Windows never made any.
I've tried:
- Booting in safe mode (then Windows runs just fine, including with network capabilities)
- Ran a antivirus scan, nothing came up.
In the attachement is a .png image of my Laptop system made using Speccy.
These are the results when I ran MiniToolBox, hope it can clear something up!

Hello!
I have been having alot of problems with my computer the past few days. You cant really even get online because it goes so slow and freezes up. I have ran spyware scans and virus scan numerious times and nothing seems to change. I also performed a disc clean up and defragment. I dont know what else to do.
Please if you know anything else I can do, I would really appreciate it.
Everyone at my house uses myspace alot so I think that is where my problems are coming from because we dont do much more on it.

Thanks,
Deena Knight

I'd really appreciate it if someone helped me - whenever I try to open ANY type of video on any player, it immediately freezes up my computer. I can still VERY slowly and laggy-ly open Task Manager and close the program thats attempting to play the video file therefore returning my computer to its usual state - but thats really troublesome.

Please help?

Hello,
I have been directed here from the Global Mod: Boopme He has cleared my computer and says it is not a malware issue he thinks a sofrware issue, to come here.
My cursor keeps lagging for a few seconds, then it will respond. It will just freeze up, then resume.
After I launch an application(firefox, or a game) sometimes my monitor will just turn off and go in to "save mode". I have no option but to hold the power button on my pc.
Whenever I notice my cursor start to lag, that is usually the first sign that something is going wrong. Then my monitor will go down. So when I see my cursor isn't responding/wrong cursor when typing,clicking I just restart my computer. So the past 72 hours I have been having to hold the power button and force shut downs, and do frequent restarts to try to prevent me having to do the powerbutton shutdown.
For reference of all the work I have done so far with Boopme: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/502807/computer-freezing-cursur-dissapearing/#entry3121909

So, have a bit of an odd one for you guys. My aunt brought to me a laptop of hers that was running sluggish and sure enough it was a bit slow on startup. So I did the normal thing and ran CCleaner, disabled unnecessary programs and finished with installing some updates (and there was a lot of them, didn't get to an antivirus run through). Then when I had the computer boot back into normal mode the computer was far worse. It would take minutes for things to register.

Finally I booted it back into safe mode but to my surprise, things are almost as bad there. But only sort of. See sometimes it'll allow me to open up a program and run it immediately for it to freeze up and not responding. Other times, programs will again take minutes to finally start up. Heck, explorer itself has stopped responding a couple of times.

So finally I was like, "Okay, she wants Windows 10 on the computer anyways and to have it reset, so let's just go with a Refresh and start from there. Started the process but it stopped saying some error had occurred. Tried resetting and got the same result.

At this point, I'm sort of at a loss and could really use some assistance. Any ideas? Not even entirely sure this is a software related issue but I'm sort of hoping it is as those are easier to fix, and less costly. But the other reason is that things definitely seem far worse after my fixes than before.

i have just got a new PC ... and installed vista 32bit ultimate......

i haven't really installed a lot on to it , compared to my pentium 4 , 1g ram computer .....

but it is lagging and freezing , all over the shop .....

firefox is having real issues , with freezing. Also on start-up .... i am getting a message from windows defender , saying it is stopping some programs ......and then sometimes i need to restart my pc , as it freezes for over 5 minutes

alot of programs just won't run .......

i'm guessing it has something to do with my start up processes and processes running ....

i have attached two jpegs , one of my system and the other from process explorer

what boggles me , is that i have more programs on my old PC ........ so am guessing this is due to modification to this PC ( graphics , vista etc etc )

also the security on vista is annoying , can this just be turned off ? and rely on AVAST ...... surely this would save some process ..... i basically want to cut all the ' CRAP ' out or running ( <<<<hope i can say that, without being told off )


any help , i would be greatful

A:vista issues ( freezing & program lagging )

Hi Steven -

The reason that so much is missing from Process Explorer is the security level it is running at. Very easy to remedy - RIGHT-click on the executable procexp.exe, select "Run as Administrator". Now you will see the <access denied> go away on all of those line items.

Windows Defender will chime in any time you perform driver installations, certain program installations - any time a change is being made within the system's drivers. If you are installing a program or driver and Windows Defender requests attention, review the info - as it is probably related to your install.

You just got the PC and had to install the OS -- didn't it come pre-installed with Windows 7 or Vista?

Regards. . .

I left Kaspersky Antivirus scanning my computer at night, then when I woke up IE7 wasn't working, it keeps on connecting to the homepage, so I decided to reinstall it, when I did, I reached the "Installing Windows Internet Explorer Core Components" part, it stayed at that part for almost 2 hours, so I just closed the installation cuz it can't take that long, something is wrong! So now I'm using Firefox which is running extremely slow, and it freezes every few seconds once, so I barely even got to type this thread, so, please HELP!!!!!

I've been having a problem with my cable internet from comcast for months, probably over a year, and nobody there seems to be able or want to help and I am completely desperate to get any help I can.

My connection gets great speed but between around 10-12 until sometime the next morning, my connection locks up, freezes, slows, drops, every couple of minutes. Sometimes the lock ups last as little as 5 seconds, sometimes as much as a minute.

My internet goes out completely once or twice a day causing me to reset the modem and router. The problem is on all computers, not just one. My Xbox included. I've tried bypassing the router a bunch of times and the problem persists without it.

I've had techs out and talked to CSRs a bunch during all this, nobody ever helps. When the CSRs reset my modem, things work good for a little bit, then it starts up again.

If all I did was surf the internet and check email the problems wouldn't be that bad. Sometimes it locks up while checking email or changing pages and I just have to wait for the freeze to end then try again. But I like to play games online and that causes a huge headache. My character is constantly just standing there frozen, unable to move until the internet kicks back in. The same thing happens to my mother when she tries to play her silly little poker app on myspace. It's just a little java or shockwave game and the internet is causing it to freeze up as well.

Whenever I press Start button, open a folder, right click to open properties, anything that accesses folders, it lags out. Example: I open up a small folder on Desktop, it opens the folder window, and I see the green loading bar (at the address bar) and the hourglass cursor (Vista's blue circle) for 5-30 seconds at time, as if I was loading a very very very big program.

My system was built with Multitasking in mind. I could run several heavy graphic games and graphic do not even slow down. I could open 10 browsers in the background. And with all those, my CPU usage did not exceed 45%.

And the lag/freeze problem happens about 80% of the time, when the computer is under no stress, CPU usage at 2%, with hardly anything else running. This is bothering me a lot, I have spent hours looking for the cause of these. Event Viewer did not offer anything interesting indicating any problem.

Would the SSD OS drive or the RAID0 affect this by any chance? I am using hardware RAID onboard the ASUS motherboard, not Microsoft software RAID.

Any help appreciated.

Hi, I know that there have been alot of posts about this issue, but I have tried everything. When I stream hd videos on (youtube, netflix or play any video games) my audio and sometimes video freeeze for 5 sec, and it happens around every 10 seconds, in addition sometimes the mouse also lags too and seems like the computer is about to freeze. This happened today after my computer got a blue screen of death (Kernel Security Failed Check). I have clean installed my graphic drivers, updated bios firmwear, check/updated my sound card, realtek audio device, I have tried everything but nothing seems to be working, I was wondering if I am forced to rma the laptop or would this issue be solved with a clean install or even better a fix that wouldnt cause me to do either of these things. In addition I have noticed that my graphics card had a big decrase in performance, specifically prior to today my card was getting 120fps solid on CSGO and LOL but now it only gets around 98 fps.

In addition I ran sfc /scannow for my harddrive and it said that Windows Resource Protection did not find any violations

Hey

About 2 months ago I reformatted my harddrive. I went through all the normal procedures and installed Norton 2005 Anti-Spyware Edition. After doing all of Symantec's Live Updates, I restarted. When my computer loaded back up.. It took between 2 - 5 minutes for the network connections to.. connect.. and I couldn't do anything with my computer until then. Programmes wouldn't load and would freeze my computer, and it wouldn't un-freeze. Example: I ran Age of Mythology, and I'd try to play online, but when the programme tried to connect to the internet, Norton's little box would pop up and I'd permit. But then the programme would freeze and I'd have to force a restart. (By the way, I was running Windows XP Pro SP2.)

About a week ago, I got a new harddrive. I installed XP Pro SP2 on it again, and then went through all the above. After installing Norton 2005, It started happening agian. Any programme that attempted to access the internet would freeze, and blahblahblah.

I removed Norton with Symantec's product removal tool, and tired again with Norton 2004. This did exactly the same thing. I did the internet programme scans within Norton and so on.

After giving up, A thought popped into my head. Trying XP Home. But again, 2005 and 2004 didn't work.

So I just re-formatted again and tried one last time with XP Home. But nothing changed.

I tried removing all windows updates, including sp2, and putting Norton on, but that does shiite all, so I can only imagine i... Read more

I dont know about the antispyware, but I can tell you microsoft offers a very good (currently) free real time antispyware program. Keep this in mind if norton is still causing trouble down the road.

My computer's symptoms include a little slow on startup, after use of more than 30 minutes the computer becomes extremely slow at doing anything (looking at My Computer in Windows Explorer takes 5 minutes), it freezes (especially Firefox and Windows Explorer) and, in one incident, the computer failed to wake up from sleep mode (lights reactivated but screen was "off" [not black, "off"], no response, repeated attempts to wake it up failed).

Hello Team,

My computer has recently started behaving strangely.

Sometimes it is fine, but sometimes loading webpages is incredibly slow, entering keystrokes delays so badly as to be almost impossible, and clicking on links in emails from ebay or facebook results in error messages that windows can't find them and to check they have been typed correctly, - when they are auto generated.

The fault is intermittent and re-booting can clear things up sometimes.

The sysinfo is below and I ran the Hijackthis program and the log is below that.
I downloaded dds but when I run it a dos prompt screen with a message appears very briefly and then disappears without trace.

I downloaded gmer it does the quick scan ok I uncheck iat/eat and make sure only drive C is checked. The scan runs for a while and a log is being created but it stops working at "volume/shadowcopy5" and I don't get a file to attach.

Sorry I can't do any more.

Many thanks for any help,

Rumi

I have a 1.60 GHz pentium with 256 MB of ram, running XP Pro 2002 Service Pack 2. I would say this system is 4 or 5 years old now.

I took my computer in for service the first part of June, had the hard drive wiped clean and a clean install of the XP Pro. Last week it just started going haywire. The screen would go black and it would freeze (mouse and keyboard--no Ctl-Alt-Del). I took it in to the shop last Thursday, and they removed an internet filtering program that I had downloaded. That helped quite a bit, but it still freezes on me. Sometimes I can work for 4 hours, sometimes 5 minutes before it freezes. I could not even work on it today, it froze constantly. I also replaced the mouse because the driver was old and the problem seemed possibly to be mouse related. That also did not help the problem--in fact, I think the old mouse worked better. I have run Scan Disk several times, Spybot, AVG, and CCleaner. No viruses detected. The whole system seems to be running slower than usual, too. I do notice some graphics involvement when it freezes--the mouse will be cut in half or there will be a little vertical line.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

For the past two months my laptop has been freezing inexplicably most often when browsing the internet, the weird part is that it'll freeze the first time but when i restart it it acts stable.I tried system restore, cleaning the registry, AV scans and spyware scans (With multiple programs), updated all drivers, defraged the hard drive

The only two things that u can think of is my Zone Alarm Firewall interfering with AVG (I heard this happens sometimes) or the numerous errors in the events viewer listed below:

it looks like you have avg and microsoft security essentials both running- I would un install mse and see if that fixes the problem as they may may (or may not?) play well together. This is unlikely but the update error 0x80070070 is about your hdd being full- is it? Here is an article on that- http://blogs.technet.com/sus/archive/2008/...0x80070070.aspx

I installed driver version 362.00 and everything worked great. I played Dark Souls 3 for about an hour with 65% fan speed, after a 10 min break I played CS GO then the problem started to happen. Screen tear is present and my game freezes then recovers. The audio will also freeze in that frame. I uninstalled my nvidia drivers with DDU and clean installed the latest driver but the problem still persist.

I have already posted here and had computer hijacked - I have ad-aware and run it daily. the puter even freezes on start -up on occassion - rarely runs for more than 1/2 hour at a time.... always will freeze when it isn't used for several minutes... all power settings have been shut off - no screen saver/powering down monitor/or hibernation .... I feel like it could be a driver... I already uninstalled Nvidia Gforce3 ... so windows is using a generic video driver - hardware settings shows nvidia being disabled. I don't know what else to do .

Hi

I really hope someone can help me with this after installing windows 8 and using it for the past 3 weeks now I have found that my pc is freezing and not closing down properly and this gets worse with each day. I am unable for some reason to go back to windows 7 using the factory restore tool!!. But I will say I do like using windows 8 but these crashes are now beginning to get on my nerves due to them happening constantly all day.

I have uploaded a zip file with my events log and hoping that if I can get these fixed I will be happy to stay with windows 8. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

OK I know MSN freezes on all computers every now and again but mine has been playing up a lot lately.

In the past it has frozen during conversations etc...But in the past few days it shuts down immediately upon opening it (each time).

It says 'Not Responding'.

I've tried closing it while frozen using Task Manager however this does not work - (I've left it 5mins+ to close - nothing happens!)

I've tried Shutting Down or Restarting the computer. Each time it takes about 1-2mins to respond and then it says 'Logging out' and then 'Shutting Down'.
However it stays on the 'Shutting Down' screen for ages. I've left it on one for 2hrs.

Each time I end up having to just manually shutting down the laptop by cutting the power...



Anyone know how to resolve this?


Thanks a million!

Alright, I'm at my wits end with this machine. I've re-installed XP at least five times, I've tried different RAM, and I've even tried another hard drive. All it does is freeze, right after the install, so I know it's not any software that's causing it. Common sense tells me it's the RAM, but I've replaced that.

This issue just started yesterday morning. I woke up yesterday morning to find the computers monitor (which went into hibernation) and the CPU still running (apparently soeone other than myself was on the computer and left it on overnight). I should also mention that the internet was still running as well (internet provided by my cable company)

Because the computer was unresponsive, I had to manually shut it down and turn it back own. It booted up like it normally should, but then 15 minutes after starting it up (and while I was on the internet), it froze. The mouse would not respond, ctrl-alt-delete wouldnt work either, so again I had to manually shut it down.

However, when I tryed to start the computer again, my monitor would display a message such as "No Input Signal" and 5 seconds later would go to sleep. So I was forced to manually shut it down again. I would get this same error message 5 or 6 times before the hp splash screen would come up and load like it normally should. However, the computer would only last between 5-15 minutes before freezing up again.

Once I manually shut it down for the 10th time and turned it back on again, I got an error message about some DLL's were corrupted or missing which prevented Windows XP from loading normally. So I did a PC recovery, and got XP to run again, but the computer is still freezing.

I'm worried that the constant freezing and me having to manually shut it down would be causing more problems. I actual... Read more

Been having problems with my keyboard freezing, at first I found that taking the battery out, holding esc for 30 seconds then setting the bios to saved defaults worked as a temporary fix, but as time has went on it has gotten worse, every time I manage to get the keyboard working again as soon as I play anything with sound ie YouTube or iTunes it freezes again and won't work until I do the bios reset, but if I don't play anything with sound it works fine.


Another method I tried was taking the battery out holding the power button for 30 seconds then the windows key and the letter b and resetting the bios to factory settings but even this has not worked. I'm totally stumped as to why this keeps happening as it is so out of the blue, I've also tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers but this did not work either. Would appreciate any help.

Hi,

I'm not entirely sure I've posted this in the correct section of the forum but I'm not really sure what the problem is, so apologies if this is in the wrong place. I have a HP Pavilion g series laptop, I got it in February of this year and it has been running brilliantly until a week or two ago. It has started freezing just after startup, the mouse still moves but if I click anything I just get a spinning blue circle and Ctrl + Alt + Del does absolutely nothing. I got told to try Ctrl + Shift + Esc instead but that doesn't work either. The computer runs fine in Safe Mode with absolutely no issues, and if I manually restart, boot in Safe Mode and then restart into normal mode sometimes it will come on and work normally.

I have looked at several forums already and following suggestions to others I've tried clean booting, which didn't help, and disabled the Computer Browsing - which seemed to fix the problem for a day. I can't System Restore because my laptop has no restore points saved which seems bizarre especially as I'm sure a couple of times I have specifically told it to save a point.

I checked the Event Logs (again following suggestions on other forums) and it seems that the system crashed on the 24th of May there is an error stating:
The previous system shutdown at 19:40:45 on &#8206;24/&#8206;06/&#8206;2012 was unexpected.

I have an E-machines EL1358-53 desktop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit OS.

I have tried to restore to previous date, and also wiped out hard drive and re installed windows. I do not really know what to do at this point, nor do i want to spend the money out of my budget to buy a new desktop.

I got my new Yoga 900 in the mail about two days ago and ever since it's been randomly freezing - more frequently recently.  It froze once on the first day of use and I chalked it up to errors with Windows 10.  It froze once more before I updated Windows and today after updating Windows it froze four times in one day.  There's no error message or anything, it just freezes completely without a BSOD and the only way to use it again is to shut it off and turn it back on. Aside from uninstalling bloatware and updating Windows with windows update, I haven't made any modifications to the software or anything.  I haven't dropped it and it's always been put in a case when stowed in my backpack.  I've babied this thing every step of the way.  What's causing this?  I'm really disappointed in having these problems with a brand new $1300 laptop.  Is this common?

A:New Yoga 900 Constantly Freezing

Hi yogaflame, welcome to the forum.
 
     If all of the "bloatware" you are referring to, includes the Lenovo Companion, and Settings, you probably didn't receive the updates provided by Lenovo.
 
    Still, if you go here:
 
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-900-13isk?
 
   ... and compare your installed driver versions, to the Lenovo driver list, then update to the new, you should be all set.
 
     Make note that there is a new BIOS, C6CN34WW, so if you're not on that revision, update the BIOS first.
 
Cheers

It may be shutting down due to overheating. Most laptops are not designed to be gaming machines. You can try using compressed air to blow dust out of the vents and see if that helps.

I have had my laptop (Toshiba Satelite) for at least a year or two, quite a while now, and have had no problems with it at all until just a few days ago. It has started to freeze up and not respond to anything except mouse motions. It usually does this with anything other than Internet Explorer and does it especially if I run a program like Windows Defender, or Malwarebytes, which I installed today because of a reccomendation in another thread on here. It will let those open up and then freeze a couple minutes into the scan. It will freeze with IE open much later than with other things open. When it freezes, it will just let me move the mouse and that's it. It will not respond to any clicks, keystrokes, ctrl alt del, or anything other than holding the power button down until it turns off. It has done this every time I have restarted my computer today, which seems to be about at the 800 mark by now... It's confusing, it will freeze quicker with some programs and not as quickly with others, but when it does, the only way to get out of it is to forcibly shut it down. Thanks in advance for any help!

They will constantly increase/decrease while the computer is running, as programs (including background processes) are opened/closed. e.g. I have 42 processes running with an open browser and notepad opened. The rest are system processes, anti-virus program, firewall, anti-spyware and a few programs I chose to run at startup. Some users will tweak the startups to get down to about 25 processes but that's usually not needed unless your computer is really slow to boot up or slow at opening programs or responding to user input.

I don't see any malware in your log but I will take a further look to make sure, however..........

I notice that you have more than one anti-virus programs on your machine (AVG & Symantec). That's not a good idea!!

This messes up the machine pretty badly. Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & may produce undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstall## Do NOT proceed with the rest of the fix until you have resolved t... Read more

i've had my laptop for a year now and i've never had ANY problems with it whatsoever. well, i took my husband's external hard drive b/c mine is falling apart and i was freaking out i'd lose everything on it, so put it all on his for extra backup. well, that was DAYS ago, maybe 4-5. i'm not sure this has anything to do with it, but i wanted to mention that's the only new thing i've done, besides the usual.

at school on thursday, i brought the external in so my classmate could put a program (visual studio 2008) on it for me. his microsoft security essentials went off with about 4 worms/trojans. he said he cleaned it off, but now ever since then, my laptop keeps freezing! it doesn't matter what i do or load up, it'll freeze within 2 minutes.

essentials said it successfully deleted the worms, so i'm not sure that's it. it's just weird that after he hooked up the external to his laptop, it caused MINE to freeze, even though i don't have it hooked up to my laptop. i hooked it up when i got home from school and then took it off b/c it started freezing. while i was sitting there, though, he wanted to make sure none of it got onto his (he has windows 7), he ran his antivirus through and nothing came up, so he said he didn't get any of it.

i have no clue what to do and i'm sorry if it's in the wrong place. i'm not sure if i should just reinstall vista with the CD that came with my laptop, but i'... Read more

My computer's problem is that all the programs and everything that's running suddenly freezes (programs, mouse, music, etc.) from time to time. Especially when I'm watching videos, usually on fullscreen, or on particular websites such as Twitter or those that take a while to load, are sluggish when scrolling through or have a lot of content. After it freezes, I would have no choice but to restart the computer. I tried formatting my computer, and installing the system on a new hard drive with plenty of space. I also cleaned out the dust from the CPU to make sure it's not over-heating, used a few programs and cleaned out the registry, deleted unused files and programs but nothing seems to work, the computer still freezes pretty often. After I formatted the computer, it started freezing less often and the blue screen where Disk Checking occurs stopped appearing whenever I had to restart my computer. Which means it helped a little bit to format the computer, but did not solve my problem. Hope you can help!

Good Day,

For about the past two weeks, i have been encountering some problems with my PC which include ...

- PC freezing during use (which requires a restart because not even CTRL+ALT+DELETE works)

- About every other day while booting up a message stating "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device."

- And finally the BSOD about three times during the past two weeks

I'm not sure of the cause, but i thought i'd start by considering it a virus/malware/spyware issue ....

I downloaded dds.scr and tried running it but i get a message stating "This tool does not support your operating system" ....

I run Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit, Service Pack 1

Thank You for any help ....

I've had my laptop for about 2 years now and never had any trouble with it, but for the past week it freezes straight as a I log on and won't go back to working again. After running virus scans in safe mode (it usually freezes half way through them) and leaving it off for 24 hours it worked fine again for about 2 hours then the same thing happened again. Tried to run the scans again but nothing happened. A week ago (just before this all started) I connected my new iPhone 5 to the laptop and it froze it then, so I went to system restore back to the date this happened, then it crashed during that, now the thing doesn't even recognise its on charge and won't switch back on at all?

Hi there,

I am hoping there is someone that can help me solve an issue I have been having with my computer. Over the last couple of months, the computer has been freezing. It all started with the BSOD but that has stopped and now the whole system is freezing. Sometimes it will freeze right when I log in, sometimes I can work on it for 10-15 minutes before it freezes and sometimes I can work for a couple of hours before it freezes. I end up having shut the computer off at the cpu and start all over. The only time it does not freeze is when I am running in safe mode. This is what I have done so far:

- Removed any programs I thought might be the problem, ie., Windows Live Movie Maker, Skype, Logitech webcam etc.
- Did a registry clean using Eusing Registry Cleaner
- Cleaned up any errors using Errorend

I am totally at a loss at what might be causing this problem and I'm hoping there is someone out there that can help me out. I have attached the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 file.

Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forum..

You have 56 minidump files and yes that's a lot I will start going through them in a couple of minutes. First you need to do 2 things.

1. Run a full updated scan using your anti-virus

2. Download malwarebytes and run a full scan here is the link and use the free version.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

Please give us the results of these two scans as soon as possible...

Please DO NOT use any registry cleaner they can them selfs cause a lot of problems within your system. Remove it from your system and as we go we will show you and tell you what you can use.

My dad has a computer with Windows XP on it which he runs his business off of and it is constantly freezing on him, let me get into more detail..

You will still be able to move the mouse around and you can maximize programs but once you do that you cant do anything more with them, and everything just eventually stops responding. The problem started out where the computer would freeze after being inactive for about 10 minutes, as long as he was at the computer doing something it would work fine but if he left it alone it would freeze.

Well we tried some things first to try and fix it, ran AVG but of course the computer froze during the scan. I tried to do a simple system restore, problem is the computer freezes during and it does not have time to finish it. So i went on to run a checkdisk (chkdsk /r) and had it run on startup, problem is the computer froze during the checkdisk aswell. After another day it starts freezing even when he is using it, first after about 10 minutes and now its down to 5 minutes tops. So since he has his older HDD in the computer still that he uses as extra disc space now I went ahead and booted off of that, its really bogged down like it was before he got his new computer but atleast it works. That one has a recovery console built into it so i booted off of that and ran chkdsk /r on his C drive (which ofcourse is the one we are trying to get fixed). Some problems found and repaired, great! Booted off of the drive it still freezes.

So lastly ... Read more

Windows updated late last night/early this morning as I turned it off. I'll also say that Zonealarm has updated.

Today, my computer is constantly freezing. All I can do is manually power it off. It is freezing about 5-10 minutes into startup.

Hi,

Seems to me that you have you video drivers missing or something.

Quote:




rundll- error loading nview.dll- a dynamic link library initialization routine failed




Are you running multiple monitors? Anyway, try Start=>Run=>msconfig
Then go to the startup tab and search for a line called rundll32.exe nview.dll,nViewLoadHook or something similar. The Startup Item should be nview. Uncheck it.


Quote:




VIAAGP1.SYS' ON VIA AGP FILTER DRIVER DISK IS NEEDED. TYPE THE PATH WHERE THE FILE IS LOCATED THEN CLICK OK




This one should be related to your drivers. Can you find out the name of your graphic card? Drivers page This is the page to download drivers for the graphics. Check if you see anything familar.

Hello,

I am having a lot of dfficulty with my computer. Since a few weeks now, the computer will randomly begin to freeze. Sometimes right away after start, or when left inactive, other times it will work for hours then suddenly freeze up. I am not sure what the problem is. Last month I had trouble with my Ipod and had to reformat it, which led me to reinstall Itunes. Ever since then the computer has been crashing and I will have to restart everything.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Dell Inspirion Laptop that has begun freezing up. I spoke with someone that builds computers and he told me to run msconfig, which I did. I wasn't sure what to do once I got to that screen so I didn't change anything. Now, I can't get online and not much of anything will open.
Should I just re-install XP or use this laptop for a boat anchor?

Built what I thought was a dream rig but it's a nightmare and freezes at any point from welcome screen to an hour in but it will freeze at some point any time I start it. Thought it was bad RAM or I5 RAM in an AMD build (given by mistake) but apparently not according to tech people, Corsair themselves and Memtest. The HDD is a Seagate Barracuda but a chkdsk on it was fine. Temp is fine (30's) and system in 40's. AMD 1090T, Gigabyte GA-790XTA--UD4 motherboard, OCZ PSU (700W), GEForce 9800GTX, Corsair XMS3 CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 Core I5 (Corsair said the only difference is an AMD runs it at 1333) and an Noctua Heatsink which I only mention because it now blocks the RAM .Hoping it's the video Card or PSU as all the other wiring is hidden out of sight under the MB and elsewhere. Worked fine before, sorry I ever touched it, Windows 7 which ran on the other computer for months, Thankyou
