Computer constantly going unresponsive/freezing at random times

Q: Computer constantly going unresponsive/freezing at random times

Hey guys, recently, my computer has been freezing at completely random times during the day and always requires a hard reset to fix the problem (temporarily). I have no idea what is wrong, I have not really installed any new hardware or devices, except my iPod Touch I got around 2 weeks ago and my router I got around 3 weeks ago, but I have no idea if they are causing the problem because the freezing has been going on for around 5 days now...

A: Computer constantly going unresponsive/freezing at random times

Answer Match 106.26%

My computer has been freezing for a while and I haven't thought anything of it until recently when it started to freeze multiple times a day. Sometimes I would be doing something and other times I wouldn't be doing anything and it would just freeze. I've searched but I don't know what the problem is. All I know is that the light that blinks orange whenever I'm doing something goes away. Please help I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!
 

A:Computer freezing constantly random times

The very first issue can be that your system is running beyond it's hardware specifications. This occurs when getting too numerous programs running at the same time. If the amount of RAM in your system cannot handle it then your computer will freeze. The simple solution for this is to run fewer programs or buy additional RAM.

Some folks ask - what if windows 7 crashes when I only run a particular program? In this case you might need to update your drivers or system. Often times compatibility issues could cause your computer to freeze up. You can check the Microsoft Windows website for the latest updates.

If windows 7 freezes at random, then this problem should be relates to the registry. When the Windows registry is full of errors it can stop your system from properly running. The registry contains the information of your computer which is used to communicate between the OS, software, and hardware devices. When the registry becomes congested with errors, the communication procedure breaks down.

The recommended solution for this sort of Windows 7 freezing would be to clean the registry of corrupt files and various errors. Not just will this prevent pc crashing, it will also speed up your system considerably.
​Also, take a look at this site for some more information:

I hope this helps!

My computer freezes up randomly. I never know when it is going to freeze. Usually everything freezes in an instant. Occasionally I can 'see it coming' because my cursor freezes for a second, then moves and then freezes again permanently.

I tried the rootrepeal but it would not load - it gave me an error message "FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error - Code: 0x0000024 Extended info (0x000000d0)
Under details it showed:
FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error - Code: 0x0000024 Extended info (0x000000d0)
DeviceIoControl Error = 0xie7 or maybe 1e7?

HP Pavilion dv7-6b78us
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
IE 10
All Important Windows updates applied.
This thing will not stop crashing/freezing.
Most time while online I'll get a pop up saying the webpage, IE or explorer.exe has stopped working/responding or the thing will just freeze and all I can do is press and hold down the power button and restart.
I haven't been able to repeat the problem in safe mode.
I reinstalled Windows from the recovery partition a day or two ago, updated Windows, rebooted and the thing locked up immediately.
I've scanned with 5-6 different antivirus/antimalware scanners and none have ever found anything.

Thank you for your time and help,

Who's the manufacturer of your card?

In any case, you should go to that website..and download/install the latest drivers for your card and O/S.

If you've done this already, let us know.

For odd reasons, my computer likes to freeze when I'm doing anything.

The basic programs that I have running when it freezes:
Firefox
iTunes
Crimson Editor

I'm using a new eMachines, and it has an AMD 64-bit processer. I have lots of memory too. 512 mb.

So if anyone knows of any fixes, please let me know.
 

A:Computer Freezing at Random Times

Sometimes computers like to lock up because of overheating, but that usually happens in games and not with simple stuff like iTunes or Firefox.

To be on the safe side, you could download Hijack This and upload a log file and have someone who knows what they're doing (I'm staying out of this one lol) have a look at the log for you.

Download Hijack This from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTSetup.exe
Save the setup file on your desktop
Double click on it and by default it should install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This
Continue through the setup and have it create a desktop icon for you
Follow all the prompts, click Finish, and have it start Hijack This
Click the "Do a System Scan and Save a Log File" option
Save the log file and then it should open with Notepad
Go to Edit, Select All and then Edit, Paste to paste the contents of the log here
Make sure you DO NOT fix anything with Hijack This yet. Most of the things in the log are normal or required.

Okay guys, I need some help. Idk what else to do:

In the last 4-6 months my computer has started to freeze up, doesn't matter if im using it constantly or just a couple seconds at a time, eventually it'll lock up for anywhere from 10 seconds to 2 minutes. I thought maybe it was my install of windows Vista at the time, so I reinstalled (several times over a couple months) and it would work fine for a week or two, then start randomly freezing again.

at some point I thought maybe I had a bad stick of ram (I have 2 2Gigabyte sticks and 2 1Gigabyte stick) so i checked each stick separately using memcheck.exe i think. They all checked out clean, no problems.

So I tried installing Windows 7 instead of Vista and same deal, worked fine for a couple weeks then more issues. I checked my hardrive, S.M.A.R.T status checked out fine, but some other program said my hardrive was going bad, and within a couple weeks it did in fact die. So I got it exchanged under warranty, reinstalled Windows 7 (all of these installs are 64 bit by the way) and its been fine for a good month or two, until yesterday.

We had a LAN party for my brothers birthday, and off and on played probably 4 - 6 hours throughout the day, and towards the end of the day i started having freezing issues again. Sometimes it was before a round started, once it happened in the actual round and i got dc'ed and then today it happened twice: while trying to open COD and then in the middle of the round.

So I don't know... Read more

A:Computer freezing up at random times

1. Since you're running Windows 7, try use the built in Relliability Monitor to help you detect for any known issues. http://www.pcoptimizationsecrets.com...ility-monitor/
2. have you tried to disable the anti-virus and third party firewall programs?
3. Check if you have two NICs enabled. I had similar problem recently with my system appeared frozen and CPU was only taking up 30%. After some testing and fiddling around I found it wa because I had both NICs enabled and one was giving me a problem.

I just built my new computer, and about 15 minutes after starting everything up and getting windows working, it will freeze and make a non stop beeping noise.

like it's flatlining or something.

Also Sometimes when I turn on my computer it will say "Insert Bootable disk or restart...So I have to go into the bios and do "Load Optimal Settings" in order for it to start up vista.

So what might be causing it to freeze and why is my harddrive not being seen sometimes?

Hello, first of all I'm sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forums but I have no idea on where would this belong. Half a year ago my computer was randomly freezing, I did format my HDD and installed a clean version of Win7. That however did not solve the problem, so I decided to install a winxp64bit pro, to be able to utilize more ram and see if that solves the problem. It did not. After all that I decided to change the thermal cream and cleanup my cpu and graphics card fan. It worked, the computer wasn't freezing till the summer came, temperatures (according to razer gamebooster) went down from 50celsius to 30 when I cleaned it up, but during summer it was almost always near 50 again and it started freezing again, thought that the problem was purely in temeprature so I just waited it throught as I thought that during winter it would stop "overheating". And it did, temperatures are now as low as ever, mostly at about 25celsius. However, the freezing did not stop. It freezes in win7, it freezes in xp, and it also freezes in win7 safemode, however much less than in normal mode. So if anyone has any ideas, please enlighten me, thank you.

Hello.
I have been having bsod issues for a while now, and I think the computer freezing and 5-7 minute start up times are all closely related.

The machine is a custom build but I don't have access to the one who built it. The machine has been like this since I got it but haven't thought much about it until recently.

I've tried optimizing the startup by going through and modifying the startup programs, like is the first step to do in getting a better start up speed, but no success.
I've taken it to an IT place where they ran antivirus stuff against it and that didn't help much either.

I don't know what further information I need to post here, so please let me know what I can do to get a reasonable start up time and stop having freezing issues (seems to be a driver related thing, not sure), and get rid of these bsods.

Note: After running the bsod program, it takes a while, but the generated .zip file has nothing in it.

New to these forums, so forgive me if I don't know all the formalities.

At random times all of my computer's actions take exceptionally longer than normal; boot up takes 3 or so minutes, a crackling noise and freezing occur when playing games/videos and the task manager shows a 50% CPU usage, even when nothing is going on. I regularly scan with MalwareBytes and avast!.

On a previous occasion, I removed the case cover and booted up and everything was fine, but I think it might have just been a fluke. For the sake of fixing this problem however, let's not rule out overheating.

Below is a HijackThis log.

SpeedFan is also showing one of the CPUs running at 100% and the other running normally (basically 50%), so is something wrong with that one CPU?

Hello

I am getting seemingly random hangs in Windows 7 that I can't get to the bottom of. I'm hoping one of you awesome people can help me out?

It seems to happen most often when I'm in Firefox and I use my MMB to scroll the page - not the wheel, but using the MMB as a button so that I can smooth scroll with the little up/down arrow icon that appears on the page. This happens in Firefox 4, 5 and 6, so it's not just one bad version I don't think. It does happen at other times, but that is the most consistent pattern I can find. It also happens regardless of how many tabs I have open or what other applications are open in the background. The freezes do not happen under massive load (I can render with all the cores on 100% and it's stable) or as a result of excessive heat (max CPU temp gets to about 40 degrees C under full load).

This started happening about a month ago, but is happening much more frequently now -sometimes 5 times a day.

Hello Wesley, welcome to SF!

There are no dumps in there. Please have a good look at the second post here:

While waiting and testing for a new crash that should produce a dump, please check the following:

1. Re-seat your RAM. there is a slight diff between physical and installed and AFAIK, in your case I would not expect that. We might do a RAM test later on.

2. Fix these driver / devices issues:

I'm using XP Home Edition 2002, SP3.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi all,

I am relatively good at using computers but I know virtually nothing about the workings of a computer, so you might have to be gentle!

Essentially my computer is freezing up completely and I have to restart it each time, at first it was while playing DVDs and games like Sims2, but it's now started doing it randomly when no programs are running. It also does it if a screensaver comes on (so I don't have one set, instead I just turn the screen off). It's an old computer and right from the start the screensaver did this, but I mainly I used it for schoolwork and as I wasn't having any other problems, I left it. Now I'm starting Uni and I want to watch DVDs on it, it's becoming worse and getting very annoying.

was playing cs:go and the whole thing froze up. and i couldnt ctrlaltdelete or ctrlesc or anything to unfreeze it. and i might think its cause i have 1 hdd that is failing all the time wich might inflict this freezing on my system.
a "bugged" hdd. and i want to find it so i can replace it with a functioning hdd.

i hear from time to time that a hdd write header is clicking and have heard it for a long time and i think it makes my system unstable.

how do i find which one it is?

Hello .
Failing hardware is always a pain , you can follow these steps to figure out the condition of your HDD.
But I would make a backup of anything you can't afford to lose as it sounds as if the HDD isn't going to
continue functioning for very long.

Testing the HDD:
Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check
Then Post the results following | THIS METHOD
Download SeaTools for Windows if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
If SeaTools for Windows is unable to recognize your HDD visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions.

Hi

I'm currently running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.

Currently using firefox 3.5.5. On random occasions ,random pages will randomly not load with the loading circle spinning but nothing happening. When I click refresh, the page might load or might not. Sometimes i have to end up closing the browser and that seems to fix the problem for some time. The problem will randomly occur again shortly after.

For Msn, i have version Windows live Messenger 2009. On random occasions, i will not receive or my messages will not be sent out. The problem will go away and come back consistently.

I have shaw high speed internet directly connected to the modem. I tried calling them and letting them take a look into my computer through the internet. When they were searching theought, the problem did not occur at that moment, therefor i couldn't not prove that i have a problem.

I tried scanning my computer with Avira AntiVir Personal- Free version and Malwarebytes' Anit-Malware Free version all uptodate, but nothing gets picked up.

This problem started to occur 2-3 weeks ago, and i could not occur what i did during that time.

Hi, I've been getting BSOD for months now and I feel that my computer is yelling at me to stop procrastinating and get it some help before it's too late.

When do the BSOD appear: I could be just surfing the net. I'm guilty of having 300+ tabs open during every session. ::ducks just in case someone tries to hit me:: It also happens when watching Netflix through my browser (again with the 300+ tabs open). Or it happens when I boot up my computer just moments after the desktop appears. About a month ago, it frequently happened after clicking "shut down". It happened so often that I would just press down on the power button instead of going through windows.

What happens after rebooting: Sometimes it reboots just fine and I can go back to whatever I was doing. Other times, when I get back to the desktop, everything freezes. Then, I force restart and when it's rebooting, I get a BSOD. The freezing at startup also happens when the computer was properly shut down.

What does the BSOD say:
So, I keep getting two but I don't know if it's okay to discuss both in one post. I'll mention them both and if only one can be discussed, then please, ignore the second one.

1. STOP: 0x00000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x00000000080050033, 0x0000000000006F8, XFFFFF810032766880)

Anyway, I got two new BSOD today. Last night, I shut down my computer normally. When I started my computer today, I got a BSOD before it even got to the welcome screen.
It says BAD_POOL_HEADER stop: 0x00000019 I've attached a picture for the full message.

I restarted the computer and it booted to the desktop but then froze. I restarted again but it froze on the welcome screen. So I restarted one more time and I got a BSOD before it even got the desktop. It said: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL stop: 0x0000000D1 Also attached a picture.

I restarted yet another time and this time it gave me an option to repair. I selected that and then I left the room. When I got back, it was on the desktop and here I am now. I would really appreciate some help with this.

Hi All,

First post here so go easy on me!!

Basically my PC is freezing randomly and when it freezes the picture becomes all distorted (see attachment)...it appears to be happening in 3 seperate ways..

1) it will load up normally and I can use it for a while then it freezes and locks up all together (picture distorts) so I'm forced into a hard reboot..

2) As soon as I turn the system on the display is all distorted words won't make sense and sometimes it's like double vision as in I see everything twice, 2 cursors etc...but it will work

3) When I turn the PC on it appears to be loading normally then as it gets to the windows spash screen I get prompted with "No Signal"

To say the least I'm very confused!! I have opened the case up and vacuumed all the dust etc out thinking it could be a heating issue (thou I left it turned off for 12 hours and issue re-occured so doesn't appear to be overheating, unless the damage is already done)..I have tried unplugged the HD and DVDROM to rule them out as the issue but no change...Am I right in assuming that it can't be a graphics card issue as the problems occur in the BIOS screen which shuold be dealt with by onboard gfx and not the gfx card itself?? HELP!!!

Ow and thanks in advance!!

Hi Everyone, I have a new ProDesk 600 G2 that I have been using for about a week.  Almost every day, the system freezes, at random times, and the only way to get thing going is to power cycle the system.  I look in the event viewer, system logs, and it registers an event ID 6008.  It states "The previous system shutdown at (specified time and date) was unexpected."  What is strange is that the PC did NOT shutdown, at the time it stated.  It just froze, or appeared to freeze.  Then when I power cycle the PC and restart it a new entry is placed in the event viewer.  This one shows as Event ID 41 and states..."The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.  This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power.  Again, this second error coincides with the time I power cycled the system, so I would expect this one.  I have tried reinstalling all the latest drivers, but nothing seems to help.  I have used HP desktops for the last 10 years and have never encountered anything like this.  A search, on the web really didn't bring anything up.  I believe it may be defective hardware, but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions before going that rout.  Thank you all in advance for any suggestions.

My toshiba laptop will seem to just randomly freeze up whenever it feels like, the periods between freezes can vary anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 or 4 hours so its completely random and it does not seem to happen when I'm doing a specific task, I can be watching a video, browsing the internet or even just using the desktop and it can do it. I've run various scans but nothing has come up and I'm almost at my wits end so any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hi all,

Just though i'd post to see if anyone could offer up any help. My system seems to be crashing randomly. I have noticed it crashes more often when video is played (vlc if it helps). But not always, it has even crashed straight after it reboots, some times it can last an hour. I had downloaded the latest nVidia drivers in the hope that this would solve the problem but to no avail.

This is only a recent event, up untill 5/6 days ago the system was running smoothly. I tried to restore the system but apparently my last restore point in only 3 days ago(?).

I ran sfc /scannow but that didn't find any corrupt files, but i do have a few errors in sys events.

The most common ones are:
The adfs service failed to start due to the following error:
This driver has been blocked from loading

Hello,
 
It all started when I start hearing ads in the background, but without any windows present.
I started to scan my computer and blue screen started to show. Through persistence, I was able to scan my computer thoroughly, which took longer than usual about ~10hrs and did find traces of infection.
 
As of now, I am not certain if my computer is still infected because I still tend to experience strange behaviors including slow or no internet at random times even though there is a working internet connection.
 
If someone could help me tackle this issue, it would be great!

Hello, I wanted to know if someone could help me try and figure out why my pc is freezing at random times. I bought it new from Best Buy 3 days ago. I tried looking up the model of my computer on Google but couldn't find anything relevant. I did come across this one forum though by doing a general Google search for Asus desktop freezes:

COMPLETELY FREEZE WINDOWS 7 64 bit asus g73 desktop

The person responding in that thread said it might have something to do with adjusting memory frequencies in BIOS. I'm not sure how I would go about doing this and don't really want to damage my computer, or even if this is what I need to do. But if someone would guide me in the right path on what I should be doing, I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Two days ago, windows explorer would crash about every 15 minutes or so. Then yesterday I woke up to my computer saying "Your computer could not be automatically repaired." and I was stuck in an automatic repair loop. I did a system refresh and was able to get into the computer again. But after about 5 minutes windows explorer crashed and wouldn't reopen so I restarted. Then I got a screen that said to search "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" so I did what that said to do to fix it, but now my computer only boots into "Checking Disk: 0%" or "Repairing Disk Errors" and neither make any progress after hours. I am able to boot in a preview mode of Ubuntu from a thumb drive but I can't access my main hard drive because windows is in hibernation. I have files on my computer that are irreplaceable such as family pictures and activation keys for different products.

If you are running =only= Ubuntu then you should be able to access any part of any drive on your machine using numerous utilities available. For example, you could copy your target drive to another destination drive with, say, "dd" then work with the copy. Google has lots of hits for such type of recovery.

I'm not familiar with the "preview mode of Ubuntu" however you for SURE can boot Ubuntu (or some lesser Linux) standalone from a thumb drive and then access your hard drive either raw or even mounted as a FAT32 or NTFS disk.

[if you are getting disk errors or memory errors I for SURE would not want to be using Windows that actually USES that disk; you want to preserve the state as it is NOW and fix from there. Maybe "memtest" would be a good place to start - available online and works standalone and will not touch your disk(s) - just does a thorough check of memory]

so on october 1st ive started getting problems with all programs becoming unresponsive or very slow (especially when starting/closing them). since then ive used malwarebytes , microsot sec. essentials and Ccleaner to try to find any malware but it didnt fix the problem. i tried system restore and the problem stayed around. ive then tried to use 3 different microsoft fix-it tools (performance, maintenance and files). then i used disk cleanup and removed about 7gb of old windows update files and that has seemed to help a little, but i still get more hangtime on programs than before.
programs relating to the internet seem to be especially prone to this, as skype and geforce experiance update seem to become completely unresponsive.

Hello Everyone,

I have used the resources on these forums many times and have come to appreciate the benefit it provides to me as a user. This is my first post as I'm at a loss as to what to do next.

Windows is freezing randomly with no BSOD. Often at the log-in screen, but other times as well. The fan is still running so I assume it isn't a power issue. One other thing to note that if I do have audio playing, I will have a persistent ugly sound until I force shutdown.

This is what I have done so far:Replaced the motherboard battery
Run Memtest86
Updated video card driver
Ran Driver Verifier Enable process as described here

I'm still at a loss.

Any help is appreciated.

Is this an issue. i can provide logs if needed. let me know, cheers!

A:Computer constantly freezing

Hi Shadowraider and welcome to TSF

Sorry for the delay in getting to you, the forum has been really busy lately and all our helpers are volunteers

There is no set average for running processes as these will depend on the PC and the applications installed. 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

Hi:
 
For the last few weeks my computer has been freezing up on me constantly and I've had to restart it to get things back to "normal".

About 1 mos ago my computer started to freeze up whenever I opened Mozilla, or up to the tool bar to change any options. The freezing would last about 30 seconds, after which things ran normal

I deleted Mozilla and started to use explorer, the problem surfaced there as well. I finally did a "dell restore" that solved the problem for a few days, but then the problems started again.

I have run memory check and the full dell diagnostics and everything comes up okay.

Now every time I open explorer up, my computer freezes for aprox 30 seconds. Also when the computer first loads up, it also freezes for aprox 30 seconds.

I did spybot, adaware, ccleaner and the trendmicro virus scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


thanks,


Ased

For a few weeks, my computer has been freezing a lot. I reinstalled drivers updated windows and software, tried everything, but is won't stop. No information related to the freezing is left in the event viewer, so I think it is a hardware problem.. My computer is less than 2 years old so a worn out hard drive is pretty much out of the question. The freezing usually, but not always occurs when the computer is working hard (serveral apps open at once, video editing, etc) and seems to occur more often when the computer has been on for a long time. The freezes usually happen every few minutes and it is driving me CRAZY! I want to pick up my computer and throw it at a brick wall because I can't get anything done! HELP! PLEASE! What is going on?! I think it could be a processor problem but I'm not good with hardware so I need help urgently! Thanks!

For the past few weeks, my computer has just been constantly freezing every few seconds. I've run AVG, Spybot, and even downloaded and ran Norton...none found anything wrong with the computer. I also tried re-starting in Safe Mode and then re-starting again in regular mode as a friend suggested. Did nothing.

My laptop is a little over 1 year old. It's a Lenovo running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. Has an intel Core i5 processor, and is used only for internet browsing and video streaming.

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.

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!

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

For the past few weeks my computer has been acting up; a little slow and occasionally would freeze up. A couple of days ago, it started to freeze up constantly. It's a pretty new computer (about a year old.) It's a Dell Vostro w/ Windows XP Pro, Serv Pk 3, version 5.1.2600. When it freezes, Ctrl Alt Del does nothing. A few times when I'm trying to get it to unfreeze, it starts making a loud, uninterrupted buzzing noise, something I've never had happen before.

I have no idea where to start to figure out what's causing this. I don't know if any of it's relevant, but here's some more info on the computer and what I've checked:

Memory

Total Physical Memory 3072 MB
Avail " " 2.34 GB
Total Virtual Memory 2 GB
Avail " " 1.96 GB
Page file space 4.84 GB

I also checked the following and it says OK, anywhere that it says STATUS; HARDWARE RESOURCES, (DMA, I/O, IRQ's, Memory,) COMPONENTS, and SOFTWARE.
I've cleared cookies and temp internet files and defragged it. I checked Windows and my security programs and downloaded any updates.

The O/S is Win XP It does not have MS Office installed, I use Open Office instead. I use mostly Firefox as my web browser, but I also have IE and Chrome installed (I'm pretty sure
they're the latest versions.) I have the following security programs installed:

My laptop has been freezing a lot lately. All programs freeze up, I get "Computer Not Responding" when I ctrl,alt,delete. Once I close the extra programs I don't need to run, I will try to open Internet Explorer or Yahoo Messenger but nothing happens. When I attempt to restart the computer, it will shutdown to the "Sony Vaio" screen saver and then sit there until I manually turn off the power switch. Also, usually after about an hour or so, I'll get the so called "Blue screen of death" and am forced to restart my computer.

I'm not really sure what the problem is and obviously it's stemming further than this, but here's a HijackThis log for good measure:

it started a few months ago and at the time i just kind of ignored it cause i tend to procrastinate pretty much everything. but in the past few weeks i've actually been trying to fix this, and at first i thought it was just a trojan or some other type of malware. so as usual, i updated and ran spybot, but it came out clean and it still continued to freeze on me. i was adamant it had to be a trojan, so i downloaded AVG anti-virus which found and cleaned 6 trojans which i knew i had and i figured, problem solved. but it wasn't, it continued to freeze on me, no matter what i was doing. in fact the only time it really doesn't freeze on me is when i'm idle on my desktop not doing anything. so i googled frozen comps and have summarized that its either a temperature problem, a power problem, a memory problem, or a hard drive problem. so i opened my cpu and cleaned out the very little dust on the fans and made sure they were running properly, which they were, and left the bay door open just in case. yet it still froze. i made sure the power cord was firmly in it's socket and in the outlet and yet it still froze which led me to believe its an internal problem. so i cleaned up my registry and defragged my drives and yet it still froze. in fact it would freeze half way through my defrags. but the strange thing about my freezes i noticed, compared to other people's that i've read, is that when mine freezes, any music or sound thats playing continues to ...

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

A:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

Hello all,
 
Recently my computer has been going on freeze streaks. What I mean by this is it will freeze, I'll restart it, it'll freeze again (sometimes even on the "starting windows" screen), after these bouts of freezing it will be fine for usually the whole day. Sometimes I'll see no freezes for about a week. These freezes usually happen when nothing is going on, they actually seem to be less frequent when I'm in a game.
 
Anyway I've done just about all I can think to do, I've ran a memory test and that came back clear, I've scanned with Malwarebytes, still no dice. All of my drivers are up to date as far as I can tell. As well as running a start up repair when it did crash before booting. I did however, run the System File Checker and I'll be attaching a log of it as I'm not sure on how to go about fixing those errors.

Any help would be very much appreciated, it's pretty annoying losing progress due to these freezes, in addition to trying to get my computer in a stable state.

A:Computer inconsistently freezing 3-4 times in a row.

Random freezes are difficult to troubleshoot. I would write down what you were doing when it froze
this might pin point a cause. Even when nothing appears to be happening something is. When the freeze
occurs goto event viewer and note any errors. In the mean time make sure all drivers are up to date and
windows has all upgrades.
 
I would make sure the video driver is updated. A computer will look frozen if the video doesn't work at the time.

This whole thing happened out of no where I have no idea how or from what, I have preformed many antivirus scans and anti malware scans and even though I remove everything the problem persists!

Hello,
The other day my computer randomly just shut itself down, and then ever since has been freezing. The clock will freeze but the mouse wont, and the screen is usable for a couple minutes but then is not, and a forced shutdown is the only way to unlock. I have posted below the DDS, however the gmer wouldn't work it kept having to close, if you know a way around this please let me know. I have posted a hackthis file as well in the zipped folder. One of the things my virus scan picked up was exploit:html/repl.D but when i tried to remove it wasnt found. Please let me know if i can provide any more info. I have a dell inspiron e1505. Thanks.

Hi, my computer freezes when I'm using it throughout the day. Sometimes it will freeze up to five times in a three hour span. It usually occurs when I am tampering with media or opening multiple browsers. When the computer is idle, it does not freeze. Here is my log. (attached) Thank you for any help or feedback. Likewise, when I run a system clean up from the C drive, it will freeze.

Hello,

I've recently been having issues where my computer will stop responding at random times. I haven't yet noticed a pattern, but the most recent issue happened when I opened Facebook. If I'm playing music when the freeze happens, it starts sounding creepy and machine-like, with high-pitched noises and other strange sounds. Other windows stop responding and I can't use my computer for about 30 seconds. I'm not sure if this is Malware related or not. I haven't been to any malicious websites or downloaded anything, but I don't know what else the problem could be.

Also, I'm running Windows 7 on an HP dm4x series laptop. I believe drivers are up to date and updates are installed to Windows.

Thanks!

Below are HJT and DDS logs. I will upload a GMER log when I can, but the scan was taking a long time.

I am not extremely computer literate. Mostly just an avid googler so bear with my lack of information or expertise.
My problem is that my computer keeps blue-screening and restarting. There is no correlation between what I am doing and the restarts. Sometimes I am using my computer during them and sometimes I get up to use the bathroom and come back to the login screen and an error message.
My hardware is decently old, probably 5 years. I have not taken it apart or messed with any internal components in the last month. I use my computer mostly for internet browsing and homework. Nothing very taxing. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I have a custom built computer that seems to have something wrong. It is constantly freezing, mouse getting stuck and just not seeming right. I has a GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3, I5-2500K, 120 Crucial SSD and many other Mechanical drives installed.

I had Windows 8 Pro installed and noticed the problems starting. I then installed Windows 7 thinking it maybe software, but problems persisted. What faulty hardware could it be and what tests should I start running. Memtest, what hard drive test is there for the SSD where the OS is installed. Appreciate some help on this issue.

Basically what the title suggests. My computer will work fine for varying amounts of time when streaming video (watching movies, skyping, etc) but eventually the computer starts running sluggish until it virtually freezes. This problem doesn't seem to be nearly as bad when I'm streaming movies or tv shows, but when it comes to skyping this problem has been a nightmare. I'm at the point where I can't skype someone for more than 10 minutes before my computer freezes. Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be awesome.

Hi there guys I've been having what has to be the most frustrating freezes on startup in all history. I have this freeze that will happen on pretty much any mode that isnt PURE safe mode. Meaning that if I load up in Safemode Networking this freeze will happen there as well. But what happens is this
The comptuer starts up and gets to the windows 7 loading screen. I'll Try to login, at which it attempts to load up everything VERY slowly. At this point I'm at a bit of a time limit. If my pc doesnt fully load up in a certain time frame it will freeze. Whlie it's loading everything loads up slowly and I have a very small amount of time to load up an MP3 file. If I dont load up a song to play within this time frame and loop it infinitely, my comptuer will freeze without question at least 95% of the time. 5% of the time it MIGHT load up completely. But so far the load up mp3 loop forever trick is the only thing preventing my comptuer from freezing (If I can get that far).
 
As it stands i have no idea what is causing this problem, it's so bizarre... Please help!

My computer has been freezing frequently with a weird clicking sound on the speakers. Its been messed up for a while now. Before I couldn't even start it in normal mode and had to use safe mode just to use it. I managed to fix it by using system restore, but the freezing and clicking haven't stopped. I would just start it like normal and do the usual stuff on the computer, and after ten minutes or less it would freeze. If you need any info, please ask. I really need help!! I've had many problems with this computer, twice I had to have it taken in to be reformated. I'd rather not do that again so please, if you have any ideas that could help me, please post!

Recently I was working on SPSS (a stats database) modifying one file over several weeks and saving changes several times per day. One morning I tried to bring my computer out of hibernation mode, as usual, but it said there was a problem and I would need to delete the restoration file inc order to resume. Since I had saved my data so often, I agreed. When my computer restarted the file was reverted back 2 weeks. I have since learned that SPSS files don't create temporary files, but still I was saving continuously so this was very strange. No other files were impacted (none were open either though). Since this time my computer freezes several times each day - every time I leave it sit. It's like it cannot come out of 'hibernation mode'. At the time of my problem, I went to run my Sophos virus software but it wouldn't start?? I then installed Microsoft's free virus program and following that avast! antivirus (based on someone's recommendation). I have run Malewarebytes too and only a couple small (apparently insignificant files, as per another IT forum user) were detected. Another issue is that my taskbar freezes too when my computer freezes. Bottomline I have two questions: (1) should I just reinstall my OS to fix these problems? and (2) I bought a new computer (as I CANNOT lose anymore of my PhD work!) and I am scared to move over my necessary files, as I worry there is an undetected virus that could affect my new computer.

Hello,

I'm going to post two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.

I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.

I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen and I have no higher computer knowledge.

I'm attaching the zip file required.

Wow, this sounds like the same thing that happened to a friend of mine when his hard drive was failing. Replaced the drive and the freezes went away. Even the buzzing noise.

Also you may need to look at what drivers you may have just install/updated.

Hoping you don't have any failing hardware "Motherboard, video card, etc". Those are expensive

About 7 days ago my computer started experiencing this problem. Somewhere in between 30 minute and an hour of my system being on it will freeze completly and I won't be able to click anything. This problem was accompnied by slowing of my system. When I restart my computer it will boot normally and freeze 30 minutes later. Sometimes thou it will go to the User sign-in screen and then after about 7 seconds go all black with only a cursor on the screen. When it reaches this point I am forced to restart my computer because there seems to be no other option.

7 days ago Kaspersky (my regular anti-virus) detected a virus with the file name ~.exe. And labeled it riskware Trojan.generic. I don't know what this mean but I appears to have quarentined it even though the problem persists. I also regularly run Spysweeper which isn't picking up anything that isn't normal.

In order to combatthe problem I downloaded Spybot S&D, which found a bunch of problem but didn't fix the problem. I also downloaded Malwarebytes but I don't have enough time to run a full scan before my computer freezes so I'm not sure if it'll help.

Someone plz help me fix this problem, I don't know if it's a virus or a software problem or a hardware problem or what. Any advise is appreciated.

I can run my computer in safe mode without it freezing and I have now finished a full scan of my system with Malwarebytes. It also came up with nothing.

The problem at the log in screen is becoming more frequent. After about 10 seconds everything will go black with only my cursour on the screen which is free to move around. The only way I can log in is if I log in quickly and log in before my computer has a chance to black out.

Hi, i'm having a really bothersome problem here, my computer is shutting down sometimes or either freezing and making weirds noises where i can't move even the mouse and i need to hard boot.

This freezes only happens when i turn on the computer for the firsts time of the day, it happens like 5-10 times and then he starts working correctly for the rest of the day, i don't have a clue what is happening, do i need to format my computer?
Sometime appeared a blue screen (i think its called death screen) here is an example

What should i do??

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

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

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

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.

My computer is constantly freezing up. On start-up things seem fine, but after a few minutes, I am unable to interact with anything cause the cursor indicates something is trying to load, but never does and then freezes.So I have no choice but to turn off my computer. I really need help, I am trying to avoid having to do a clean install, I don't know how to backup things properly, and Im afraid I will have to re-install alot. This is my first time on a forum like this and I need specialized help. Before I go on, here is all the list of things I have tried to tried to fix the problem with:

-Disk Check
-Disk Defragment
-System Restore (no restore points)
-Virus Scan with Mcafee and Malware Bytes (viruses/malware was found and removed, but problem persists)
-Last good Configuration

I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking and everything is fine there luckily.
Now I think I might know what the problem is, but I need to know how to fix it. In the Event Viewer, I see several errors:

-Ntp Client was unable to set up a manual peer to use as a time source cause of DNS resolution error on 'time.nist.gov,0x9. The error was: no such host is known (0x80072AF9)

-The shadow copies of Volume C: were aborted cause of an IO failure on volume C:

-The shadow copies of Volume C: were aborted during detection because of a critical control file could not be opened

-Audit events have been dropped by the transport. The real time backup file was corrupt due to improper shutdown

Hi,

I think I have some sort of malware on my computer. It is constantly freezing on startup and I have to keep rebooting. There is also a permanent antivirusXP2008 window and the desktop has been changed. Google links have also been hijacked and I can't get onto this website from that computer (posting from a different one).

Could somebody please have a look at my hijack this log? I have tried a couple of scans (spybot and adaware) to no avail.

Many thanks in advance for any help...

Hey all,

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

I'm running Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro Bootcamp partition and its only recently been experiencing some problems, the most notable being that the computer freezes randomly. I could be playing a game or browsing the web, and the screen freezes, no black or blue screen though, everything just freezes, and I can't move my cursor or get to task manager to end processes. Another problem I encountered is that while browsing Youtube in particular, when I click on a video, for the first 10 to 20 seconds or so, the video itself is either mostly black o... Read more

This is my first time posting on Bleeping Computer so forgive me if I don't post everything needed on first entry.
 
My computer (with Vista OS) has been running slower and slower over the past few months and is now at the point that it freezes at times. I defrag weekly and have plenty of available memory. I've also been getting a few advertising pop-ups.
 
I would appreciate it if someone would help me figure out how to restore my computer to a healthy state. I know only enough to really make things worse.
 
 
Thanks in advance,

Hello everyone,
First of all, I know that this isn't a BSOD issue but I wasn't sure about where else to post this thread.

Like the title says, my computer screen freezes with mouse movement and numlock / capslock activation until I ctrl+alt+del and then even those stop but the audio (if I was was watching a video when the freeze happened) still plays. So I have to press the power button until the system turns off, wait a little and turn it back on again. In the past week it's happened at least 35 times. I also get graphical glitches when I'm running programs like chrome. These freezes can happen at any time such as when I'm browsing on Chrome, reading messages on my email client, a couple of minutes after coming out of hibernate etc. Over the last couple of days the freezes have been happening more frequently, I've frozen 4 times in the last 2 hours.

I've run Malwarebytes as well as Avira, I've checked the health of the hdd, the ram (memtest for a couple of hours), the temperature (even had a 140mm pointed directly at the cpu and gpu heatsinks). There's no point looking for gpu driver updates because mine is not supported anymore and I have the latest one. Turned all my startup services off apart from Avira and I've also run sfc/scannow and that didn't come up with anything either.

My gut feeling is that the gpu is dying because if I run the amd test in Catalyst Control Centre to check load temperatures the test fails after a couple of seconds even though t... Read more
