Y510P Freezing After Start Up

Q: Y510P Freezing After Start Up

Hello there, I have had my IdeaPad Y510p Laptop - 59369999 for 2 years without any problems, until today. I started watching a video & everything froze for a good 5 minutes. I held the power button until my laptop shut down, when I turned it on it said "scanning and repairing drive c". It started up normally, I gave it time, moved the mouse once everything had loaded & it froze again. Then the screen went blank with the cursor working, then the cursor dissappeared. Does anyone know of this is a simple fix? Thank you!

A: Y510P Freezing After Start Up

My guess is that the hard drive is dying. If it will start, try getting a copy of CrystalDiskInfo (free), Otherwise, see if you can hook up the drive to another machine to test it and to get as much as you can off of it.

Hello 8-forums.

I'm posting on behalf of my little brother since he isn't the sharpest when it comes to computers. Today his computer started freezing and crashing out of nowhere at completely random times. I couldn't pinpoint an activity he was doing which might have caused it.

On top of that a pop-up kept coming up on his screen about his screen driver having crashed and has been restored. I happen to have the same laptop and I've had this problem for a week or 2 too, but nothing happens when it shows up on my screen (unlike his, where it crashes the computer). His screen now also has blue matrix-like lines all over his screen as a result of todays crashes.

I asked him to send the Zip-file from the DM log collector tool. He only had a BSoD once and he didn't notice the error code. The rest were freezes (forced to restart) and crashes (no BSoD screen).

Hope you can help find a solution to my brothers problem.
Regards Jens and Walther

Hi,  My ~3 year old ideapad purchased from Newegg seems to have gone south. I have Windows 8.1 installed. Last night I shut it off to bring it to class and when I got to class and tried to boot up, it wouldn't finish starting up, would sit at the logo screen for about 30 seconds before shutting down and starting over. The fans power up like it is going to start. It repeats this loop indefinitely. I tried holding the reset button next to the charger port and still nothing.  Suggestions?  Thanks

Hey guys, I have a very decent speed computer and rem but recently my computer has been freezing for at least 3 minutes on start up whenever network access is hindered or there is a problem in the action center and is just really slow. Inter quad core at 2.66 ghz and 4 Gb rem.

I only turned on security softwares on start up and for a computer like this there shouldn't be any problem with a fast start up with the little amount of work it has to do on start up. What's going on? Anyone have similar problems? This is frustrating since its start up is slower than the bad performing computer I had before buying this one... -_-;;

A:Extremely Slow start up/Freezing on start up

Msconfig/Startup.Msconfig/Startup.Hi, at the Start Orb / Search, type into the box msconfig click and open it at the top of the Menu page. When the window opens choose Start-up and click on it, Uncheck all the boxes, except your Anti Virus one. Click apply, then OK, and then Restart. Your Machine will shut down then, and restart. Lets see if it is one of those programs in there that was causing the grief.

recently, when I turn my pc on, it sounds like it's going into some kind of dial-up mode.The hard drive indicator light stays solid and my monitor and keyboard do not turn on. If I reset the computer ( sometimes I have to do it 5 or 6 times ), it will finally go through the proper sequences and turn on my keyboard and monitor.

Thanks in advance, oh computer gurus!

Occasionally, when I first turn on my computer, it will freeze at the start up screen. I am running Windows XP on a pentium 4, 1.5 Ghz processor. It freezes at that screen where the little green bars scroll back and forth. So, I have to turn off my computer manually, and turn it on again. Then it will start up. What can I do to stop it from freezing on me?

Probably a common one, but I have a problem with my PC freezing, during start-up.

Each time I try again, the boot-up gets slightly further into the process, and then freezes again.

If I can get as far as logging onto Broadband and then Explorer, the PC will run as normal. The next time I use the PC, I'm back square one!

I have tried various clean-up applications, but nothing seems to work -

Anyone got anything else to try?

Thanks

A:Freezing PC on Start-Up

Hi MattArt and welcome to TSF;

Go to Start>Run> type in 'msconfig' (without the quotes) then hit Enter. On the msconfig screen, pick the Startup Tab. Uncheck all applications except your virus and malware programs. It might be an application that loads at startup.

If that don't work, check the voltages and temperature in the BIOS. Overtemperature can cause freezeups, especially the CPU. Download and run the program in the following link to monitor Temperatures during normal computer operation:
http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

Open your Task Manager and see if any application or service is growing in size until it claims all your memory. If a service repeatidly requests memory but don't give it back, it grows. Normally called a memory leak.

See if any of this will help your problem.

Best regards,

My XP freezes on the blue windows xp logo page during startup. Using F8 the "last good config" didn't work. When I go to Safe Mode or Safe Mode Com Prompt it brings up a black screen with "safe mode" the corners but then it goes on to the logo page. When I try the Safe Mode with the "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" as the selected op system to start with "NTLDR is missing" comes up. The F10 system recovery takes me to the HP PC Recovery page and upon doing a hardware diag it shows no problems.


Thanks for any help you can provide!

SoDoWarts you need to fix the NTLDR which means there is a problem with the boot loader. Here is a step by step that will help you fix that http://www.tomstricks.com/how-to-fix...dr-is-missing/. You will need the recovery discs you made from the system or were provided to you at time of purchase.

Howdy,

Having some trouble with a laptop. What happens is the computer will become unresponsive after some normal use (Mouse still moves but nothing works) and I will have to hard boot it to resume using it. This cycle repeats until it becomes unresponsive at the login screen or just after login (Mouse can be moved but nothing works) I am able to use Safemode w/ Networking just fine. I can choose to do a system restore and it will allow normal use again but will eventually start having the same issue again, being able to use the laptop for a while until it becomes unresponsive after login /login screen.

This problem occurred several weeks ago and is a bit of a mystery to me !

I have a self build PC running windows xp professional. The PC is normally left running 24hrs but from time to time a reboot is required after software is added, updates installed etc. When I rebooted 2 weeks ago it started in the usual way and then stopped on the Windows Splash screen as I call it. Just where the bars begin to move across the screen, they tend to stop or not start at all and thats it nothing.

Re-starting PC brings up the options to start in safe mode, start normally etc. I can do this 10-15 times trying one and then the other , doing a restore point, switching off at the plug before it starts normally

I am desperate not to carry out a fresh install

Any suggestions please

Hi, every time I start my pc, it freezes on the XP loading screen. I then restart it, and I have to select "start windows normally" in order for it to start properly. How can I fix this problem? Thanks

A:XP freezing on start-up

Doing a "start windows normally" is just telling windows to do exactly what it did when it froze. That just doesn't make any sense. If you're really concerned about it you might try a System Restore to get back to the point before this happend.

Hi there, I made a thread about this before and thought i'd fixed it, but now the problem is back with a vengeance.
 
I'm using a Lenovo desktop all-in-one computer with Windows 7.  When I power up my PC it loads up perfectly fine.  The initial first minute or so when the desktop is loaded is completely fine also, but after that minute is up things start to go down hill.  Whenever I click on things, the screen freezes for about 20 seconds then proceeds to load the programme (or whatever I clicked) at a snails pace.  For example, opening a new tab in google chrome, opening start menu, opening a programme, closing programmes, opening task manager etc etc.
 
I've been playing a game a lot recently, and if I manage to get most of it loaded within the initial minute (when PC runs fine) then when I actually get onto the game, the slow process seems to stop.  If I don't manage to get it loaded in the beginning it takes an extremely long time to load.  If I just leave my computer at the desktop when I start it up, it takes about 20 minutes for this slow effect to stop and return to normal.
 
I've searched the internet constantly and can't seem to find anyone with a similar problem which is hard to believe.
 
Has anyone had a similar issue, or knows how to fix said issue?

I've been having an issue with my PC ever since I built it in February-March, and I've been to many different forums and haven't found a solution. It started the day after I finished building my first PC, it freezes shortly after I turn it on and even if it is idle. It doesn't happen in Safe Mode, and it even happened when I tried to re-install Windows 7 Ultimate, I know for sure it isn't my RAM or my mobo, as I've replaced both those. I was told it could be my PSU, because it doesn't have enough wattage (550) for my specs, which I'll list below. So far I have: Replaced my RAM and mobo, reinstalled Windows multiple times, switched my HDD from IDE to AHCI mode (didn't help), and installed Linux onto a USB and tried that, but none of these worked. I could use some help here, I'd really like to start playing games.
Thanks in advance!

Note: Also, when it freezes during the Windows 7 installation, I meant during the actual installation, it didn't freeze when I was choosing which drive to install it into.

My specs:
CPU: AMD FX-6300
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
Mobo: ASRock 970 extreme3 r2.0
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 760 Direct CU II OC
PSU: Seasonic 550w
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb)

Hello to all and thanks in advance for any advice.

Here's the deal:
I have a Dell Dimension E510 desktop and I just installed a new video card along with some extra RAM. Besides having some difficulty adjusting the screen resolution during a couple video games I had no difficulty until a couple days later. Now when trying to start-up, the desktop still appears & with icons but the menu bar only shows up as blue but no start button or any icons in the bottom right tray. The mouse can be moved around but has the hourglass next to it the entire time, and nothing can be selected. I can still use ctrl+alt+del and upon doing so I've found that through stopping explorer.exe, then using "Run> windows" I seem to be able to use the computer as normal, -but I really don't want to have to do that every time I start . As far as the new additions:

The RAM I installed was two 1g DDS RAM cards and system properties shows that it installed correctly as I went from 1g to 3g. My new video card is an ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series card. As I said before, I installed the new hardware and was able to run windows and assorted other programs with no problem including numerous restarts because of updates.

I'm not sure what other information you need but if prompted I would be happy to oblige.

Thanks,
Wicket

Hello everyone,
I am having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L35-S2174 with XP on it. Sometimes it will boot to the Toshiba splash screen and then freeze. Every now and then it will load the desktop and then it will freeze. When the problem first started, I was able to boot in Safe Mode, but after a minute or so, it would freeze up again. I tried booting with the XP CD to use repair console, and it will not even start. The disk spins up, but no loading. When I was able to get to Safe Mode, it hung on MUP.*, but went past it and Safe Mode loaded, until it (you guessed it) froze up. Is MUP.* the culprit, or is the drive bad? Also I tried Last Known Good, and that didn't work either. And now, I can not even get to the Boot Options (F8).

Any help is appreciated.

Computer freezes randomly and the only time I've ever been able to get it to consistently freeze is when trying to play Battlefield 4. No other game will cause it to freeze so reliably and BF4 will cause it to do so after just a minute of play.

Here is the screenshot from the Windows Event Log. I have no idea where to start with fixing this.

I have been having issues with my PC freezing. I just started using Windows 7 after my PC crashed couple weeks ago. I upgraded from Vista 64 bit.
Since then it has been fine except the PC freezes when I play Starcraft 2. I can play the game for about five minutes or so, sometimes more/less it just depends, then it will freeze, the music/sounds that was playing at the time of freeze keeps replaying, and I have to manual reboot.

After I manual reboot when this happens, I get weird issues on start up. Sometimes it will say "failed to read boot disc" or "fail to start windows" "press ctrl+alt+delete to restart". Sometimes it will run CHKDSK on restart and this morning it ran Windows Repair and determined the problem could not be fixed and windows couldn't be started. I turned the PC on and off right after it told me that and it worked fine.

This is very strange to me as I never had any issues with the game freezing on Vista.

System Specs:
Intel E8400
Nvidia GTX 260
4GB Ram
Win7 64 bit
Biostar motherboard (all I know about it)

I have unistalled and reinstalled the game, along with the video card drivers.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi. I'm new here but i do know some things about computers. The computer I built is about a year and 2 months old now and I have been having an issue ever since my sister unplugged my computer and than I rebooted it. It seems to lock up no matter what I am doing. I could leave it in idle, running programs like surfing the internet and it will still lock up. I thought it was a virus or trojan at first because my mcafee surprisingly told me that I was not protected. I uninstalled it and reinstalled ran a scan with it, spybot, and ad-aware found some things and cleaned it out. The other weird thing is that when I am in safe mode it never freezes ( i am currently typing this in safe mode.) I even ran registry mechanic, smitfraud and ccleaner and still locks up. sometimes while i have a program running it seems to be fine but as soon as i click on the system tray i can tell it locked up.

I'm not sure what the actual problem is, so here's how everything happened. First, my computer died. No problem there, just battery life and not being around to plug it in. The computer started up fine, but the audio icon had a red X over it, so I restarted. From then on, when I try to start in normal mode, I go through the user/password process, my wallpaper loads, program icons start to pop up, and about 10 seconds in it just freezes, and stays that way. I've asked around, and did a whole bunch of stuff, but nothing to do with the audio driver besides installing the latest update, which I had to do manually.

But, as I think the problem stems from the audio driver problem, it doesn't seem like anyone agrees with me. I looked at my mom's laptop, and there were differences in the drivers.

When you open up the properties, under device type, mine says "system devices", but mu mom's says "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". Also, the location on mine is "PCI bus 0,device 20,function 2" but my moms says "Location 0 (Internal High definition Audio Bus)" I also have a device status of a (Code 10:This device cannot start).


Is this the problem, or is this maybe just a difference because of sound cards or something?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

A:Start-Up Freezing Problem

Here's a list of what I've tried to fix it so far.

- Ran Malwarebytes, got rid of all that
- Installed latest driver from Realtek website
- Disabled all the programs starting with windows, to see if one of them was the problem.
- Done a few system restores, at different restore points.
- Checked my Device manager for any unknown drivers or ones with the yellow triangle( There is the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver, and the Security Processor Loader Driver- under hidden devices in non plug-and-play devices)

I tried to search for an answer to my problem, it seems there are a lot of posts about "freezing", but I couldn't find an answer to my particular problem.

My sons computer is freezing on start-up. It shows the desktop for about 5 seconds and then all I get is the infamous blue screen with no icons, etc. I am assuming he has a virus and it is my fault for not making sure there was a program loaded, but at this point I don't know how to get a virus scan onto the computer. I am able to boot to safe mode a majority of the time, but can't connect to the internet to download a virus scan program.

Where do I go from here?

Your help is greatly appreciated...

Hi, I have a big problem now, and other problems for later, I have been trying to fix my computer problems on my own for a couple years, to my hubby's dismay. He thinks I won't be able to bring our computer back from the dead. I have been reading all you info for a long time now and I can't do it on my own. The problems just keep piling up and now my computer won't go further than a few minutes after start up and then freezes. It will work in safe mode which is what I am in right now. I have ran online scanners, avg free, spybot, adaware, malwarebytes, etc... Please help me prove to my husband that these forums work. I tried getting help from here before but no one responded. Tell me what I need to do to get started. I have hijackThis on my computer but I'm not sure how to use it so I figure I'd better get your brains involved with this before I can't even use it in safe mode. I also have other issues to ask about but if I can at least get it running first that would be great! I have a Sony Viao I believe we have had it about 5-6 years. It has Windows XP SP3. Please Help Me. Thank you much!!

Hi, for the past few days my laptop has been freezing after a few minutes after starting up and the only way to restart it is by holiding the power button.

I don't think the laptop it is overheating becasue it doesn't feel particularly hot. I have tried a system restore but it hasn't made any difference. I have also tried to run a virus scan but it crashes before it completes. When opened in Safe Mode it tends to last a bit longer before freezing.

Any help or suggestions on what is causing this or how to fix this would be much appreciated - thanks for your time in advance.

When i turn my laptop on it loads to user login. I enter password with no problems and that's when the problems start. 9 out of 10 times i log in my laptop will freeze and not respond to any command. The mouse will move but i cannot click on anything and nothing loads. I've left it on overnight and still no problem. i have to force shut-down to power off and then try again. once its on and working it is great and i have no performance issues. i have been putting to standby lately to avoid this nightmare. any help would be great-fully received.

A:Help with system freezing on start-up.

If you boot into safe mode (F8 after power on) does the issue persist? Also have you looked in event viewer for any related issues?
It would also be a great idea while in safe mode to run a full Virus scan as well as a scan with an up to date malware program like malwarebytes.
If you run Msconfig - startup tab while in normal windows do you see any rogue programs?
You could also try Msconfig - and select Diagnostic startup

I think I have a few problems. The most pressing is that in 10 attempts to turn on my computer this evening, it would freeze every time. McAfee appeared to be the cause. Cntrl, Alt, Delete isn't an option to find out what is "not responding." I finally restarted in Safe Mode. I ran an initial HJT Log(see below). I then proceeded to run Clean Up! and Ad-Aware SE(it found nothing). I went into Run --> Msconfig --> StartUp and deselected McAfee as well as my large Kodak EasyShare digital camera program that always starts up(but no matter how often I uncheck for that program to start up, it still does....?). Deselecting McAfee seems to have worked, since I was able to restart in normal mode to post this. However, everything seems to be running slower than typical.

My other issue I posted about in the Web & Email forum a couple weeks ago about getting IE ActiveX popups that say my "security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page my not display properly." Those popup warnings constantly freeze my computer!! http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/431469-ie-activex-popup-freezes-computer.html

Hello!
I have a samsung laptop, and run with Windows Seven.
About a month ago my problem started. My computer will freeze and require me to manually shut it off and restart. At first it happened infrequently, but as of yesterday it freezes right after it starts up.
A friend of mine suggested that I run spy-bot search and destroy, which I did using the guest profile. It found and fixed about 62 problems. I hoped that would have fixed the problem, but unfortunately it hasn't. Right now I am operating in safe mode.
Any help is extremely appreciated. Also, I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to tech language, so if you could explain things as simply as possible it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hey,

Right i recently rebooted my computer a couple of weeks ago and everything was find until a couple of days ago it kept freezing when i started it up.

Either: on the Microsoft Xp load up page (the black one with the blue bar going across at the bottom)

Or around 1-5mins in after windows had loaded up the mouse just freezes and all programs stop so i have to restart the computer.

Any theories or ideas?

Cheers

A:Random Freezing During Start Up

Would recommend posting your system specs, and in the meantime run memtest86 to see if it is an issue with your memory which is possible.

By reboot do you mean reformat and installed windows? Your wording is a little confusing because you say that you rebooted a few weeks ago and then had trouble starting it up later on. Please clarify.

A:Windows 2K Pro freezing during start-up

Have you installed over another operating system?

Try putting the boot disc back in and do a recovery or repair ... may have been a bad install.

If you're going to install an operating system always start clean by formatting.

Also, before you try any of that walk away and leave it for a bit ... the scrolling of the blue line often pauses every now and then, in my experience.

I share a family computer, and for reasons unknown for me, the computer's antivirus program was turned off and a seven year old was permitted online. She downloaded Antivirus 2009 and I soon found myself elbow deep in problems. After many attempts, I believe I have completed rid the computer of that specific pain, but now the computer is infected and I am unable to turn on my firewall for more than a few minutes and my antivirus software is inaccessible. The computer will start up normally, but as soon as I get to the login screen, she starts to freeze up. If she doesn't freeze up, I can login, but she'll either freeze up again or just crash, with no Blue Screen of Death. I'm currently using her on Safe Mode with Networking, but I've been unable to access the computer in any other way. I would very much appreciate any help.

Hi,

I've had a problem come up suddenly with my system. I am on a laptop with Windows XP and when I load the computer as normal, Windows freezes up. Its as if the system reaches a certain point and just refuses to work - all the icons load on the desktop, but the mouse won't move and many of the icons in the icon tray at the bottom don't load either.

I can run the computer in safe mode fine. We thought we'd fixed it - our friend had loaded the latest version of Skype, and so we deleted it thinking it was causing a conflict. The computer was fine for a day but then the old problem came back. Now, when we unplug the computer from the mains our battery instantly comes up with a 'critical' warning, as if the battery isn't charging up. Also, at times when we're not using the computer and it is in standby mode the base of the computer can get quite hot - all new problems that have arisen at the same time as the freezing.

Can anyone help? I have attached a copy of the system hijack log taken in safe mode, obviously, but I'm not sure if this is a malware problem or a general malfunction of hardware.

My computer froze and I restarted it. At restart it started to boot-up then froze on the windows logo after a couple seconds. I started it up into safe mode and chose to try to start it into Windows Bug repair mode or whatever the exact name of that option is. It completed loading everything and then froze on a black screen. I restarted into safe mode again and used last known good config and , it again, froze on the windows logo. I restarted in again and ran it in safe mode. I used system restore to my last restore date and restarted. It, again, froze at the windows logo after a couple seconds. I am now running in safe mode w/ networking to post this topic, asking for some advice as to my next step.

I have a Toshiba Laptop running Wondows 7. Bought just over 2 years ago and used mainly just for Ipod synching/itunes etc.

Recently its developed a fault where by once logged in it Freezes compeltely (all animation, unable to Ctrl+Alt+Delete) etc.

it has the same issue in Safe Mode. Initially Safe mode would last a bit longer before freexing buyt now the opposite is true. "Normal" mode works for longer than Safe Mode (Safe Mode freezes as it logs in and the Windows Help screen loads)

Tried Memcheck and no RAM issues were reported

Ran malware and no virusses picked up

Tried to run CHKDSK but it freezes in Stage 2 (43% and now at 19%)

System restore just freezes at "initialising" stage resulting in several failed restore points (now it says no restore points exist)

Tried to load the event viewer before it crashed and all i could see were a load of exceptional errors that seem to refer to the graphics card?

Windows update won't launch (Fix it just says "unresiolved issues")

Anyone got any thoguhts on anything else to do/test?

I have a tonne of music and phots etc on the hard drive that i really don't want to lose (had it backed up elsewhere but that Hard Drive failed last week............sods law)

Ok, here is my problem, my friends computer was caught up by a virus, so we reinstalled her Windows Home. Ended up that a whole bunch of clusters were found on her hard drive, ending up making us close up those and taking off some of the space off of the hard drive. What we then ended up doing was finishing up the installation, also installing Norton System on it as well. It worked fine all day, until it asked to go online to update Norton.

As we did, it asked what it usually asked and said to please restart your computer to complete the rest of the uploads. So as I did, it restarted and began to act very slowly, loading things up. It then reached the Desktop and for some reason, nothing appeared to be showing up but the background and the mouse. Then shortly after, the mouse froze and nothing was loading up.

This is rather the back up story, in which case I needed help into where to look first for the problem. Does anyone know of where the problem could of happened or where to start looking first?
 

A:Slow Start Up Until Freezing

You will need to download hijackthis if possible (http://files4.majorgeeks.com/files/2b26cd1908760b63ea7268209d1750db/spyware/hijackthis.zip) and run a quick scan (it will only take a couple of seconds). Post the log back here, and I will take a look at it.

Remove the program completely from your computer including the registry and then re-install it. Be sure to reboot your computer once you have completed working on the registry. I would make a backup copy of the registry before editing it.

When I boot my PC it does the normal boot lands me at my log in page. I enter the PW then I am at desktop. After 30 seconds it will just freeze and nothing works but doing a hard reset. From there it might do this 4-5 times or might not and just work. I am really unsure what is going on but I am starting to feel I am damaging the computer as it has been doing this for 3 days now. Any help would be great thanks in advance.
I have the OTL logs if that is needed. I saw it mentioned in a post while researching but it was never resolved.

Hello all,

Been a niggling issue for a while, just gotten around to dealing with the problem. These are my system specifications:

Intel Core 2 Duo 3 GHz Processor
Gygabyte GA-EP35-DS3
Indescribable RAM/Two sticks
Very generic 400W PSU
Nvidia 8400GS Card (to be replaced with something better anyway)

The computer will boot from the Windows XP install CD, go through the formatting/extracting without issue. However, when it reboots to enter the actual system install screens (when it gets graphical), it freezes and hangs.


Could this be a weak PSU issue, or perhaps because the RAM is crappy?

Thanks for all inputs!
 

A:New build freezing at start-up: possible PSU or RAM issue?

We're assuming that this generic power supply came with the case. If so with few exceptions a power supply that comes with a case is of very poor quality and rarely supplies the power it promises to deliver.

A poor power supply will cause many system issues.

If you want to find the make of your RAM download the free and safe utility SIW and it will tell you the make of your RAM and all kinds of other information of your system as well.

Hello, i didnt get a chance to use that new tool because the computer that BSOD on me is at my office and i am not there till monday, but i was able to grab the minidump file anyway

specs:

Gigabyte 990 motherboard
8 GB DDR3 1600 corsair
550 Watt PSU
750GB WD Cavier Black
Windows 7 Ultimate 64

i had updated the bios cause i figured that was what was causing the BSOD. i have random freezes on start up and then i finally got a BSOD

im thinking its the motherboard cause i built this computer recently but changed the HD to a bigger one so that might be it also. sometimes i can use it for hours and not have an issue, sometimes it will just random freeze, any help would be appreciated.

A:BSOD on start up, freezing on boot

Hello lovewin7yea.

It appears thet BSODs are frequent for you? Was checking the threads you started earlier.

Is it the only BSOD you faced lately? If not, some more information will be good. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

But if it is a single BSOD occurred lately, your crash dump is not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If memtest comes free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try fo... Read more

Every now and then, unpredictable, my USB mouse will freeze. I have to unplug and reinstall it to reload the driver and return functionality. For some reason it freezes in the lower left corner above the start menu. The left and right buttons still respond, so it's not entirely frozen. But I can't move the cursor at all.
I'm wondering if this is a common issue with Windows 7. If so is there a setting I can adjust that might fix this? 
It tends to freeze only when the computer has been idle for some time. I thought therefore that it might have something to do with the power management settings, the sytem is currently set to "Balanced" and the USB selective suspend setting is "disabled". The Mouse power Management is set to "Allow this device to wake the computer", and the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option is deselected and grayed out.
Thanks in advance. I appreciate any help you can provide.

A:USB Mouse keeps freezing on start menu

It is possible that some usb sleep setting is causing the problem. Is there an updated driver for the mouse from the maker's website?
 
Is this a wireless mouse? If it is I would try replacing the batteries. It is strange that the buttons still work but worth a shot...
 
If this mouse is an optical version, sometimes dust or a hair can cause issues with the movement of the mouse. You could take a qtip and clean the clear part over the sensor (on the bottom may be near a red light if it is not infrared).
 
If all fails, I would try a new mouse and see if you still have the issue.

Ok, so normally I fix my own problems but this one has me stumped. Computer was working fine, turned it off because some electrician wanted to cut the power to fix something. It installed an update (unfortunately I don't know which one) and then shut down normally. I turned it off at the PSU and then about 10 mins later the power to the house was cut. Fast forward and the power is back on, all the other computer are working fine but this one now won't load windows 7 or windows 7 startup repair, it won't even boot my windows 7 installtion disk.

Heres the symptoms:
1. If you try and boot windows 7 normally you get the the "starting windows" message but no logo appears (left it there for 30 mins, no bluescreen or any changes).
2. Safemode loads up to classpnp.sys and then freezes
3. Startup repair gets to "windows is loading files" and does fills about 10% of the line and then freezes
4. Install disk completes "windows is loading files" and then freezing on the "starting windows" part.

What I've tried:
1. Unplugged everything but the HDD and the DVD drive
2. New Videocard
3. Different sata connection
4. Default CMOS
5. Plugged the HDD into another computer as a USB drive, worked fine, ran a chkdisk and it found a few problems and fixed them (but it still won't boot)

Thats pretty much it so far as I can't get into RC!Any ideas that I could try would be appreciated. Cheers.

I just bought my computer in January (09) and the past month I have been having a problem with start up. When I turn my computer on the screen will freeze on the blue HP screen. It gives me four options, Press F9 or F11 and two more (can't remember but they are F buttons) but my cursor does not work. I have tried control/alt/delete to get out of it but that does not work. I have to shut the computer off and then turn it back on and that usually worked. However, this morning that did not work, so I just left it and after almost an hour it finally unfroze and went to the next screen. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you correct it. Thank you anyone who can help.

-Freezes a few minutes after logging in.

I've already tried to do selective start or whatever and disabled everything besides windows drivers.
Safe mode works.
Did a system restore as well and that didn't fix.
I fixed this problem some how last time and my laptop restarted after a few days because or windows update and this happened again. My laptop usually is left on because when it restarts I always get problems like this.

Hi guys, I recently built a new pc and I'm having some issues with Windows 7 which seems to freeze on start up. By this I mean at the "Starting Windows" screen the animation will start but will freeze after a couple of seconds. It usually takes me about 3 restarts to then get into windows. I haven't been using Windows Repair tool because the restore deletes all of the programmes that I've put on and the crashing continues to happen despite the changes. I'll list my specs below:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
ASRock Pro3 Gen3 Z68
Intel Core i5 2500k currently @ stock speed
Gigabyte 560Ti OC
OCZ ZS 550w
8GB DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz
Kingston HyperX 120gb SSD (Boot Drive)
Western Digital 1TB Caviar Blue (Overflow Drive)

I don't think the SSD is the problem because when I did the install on the WD HDD I still had the instability and the crashes.

The drivers I have installed are: Realtek LAN drivers, Nvidia 500 series Graphics, Nvidia HD Audio and all of the "Important" Windows 7 updates.

If you need any more info just shout

Thanks in advance for any help guys!!

So half of this has been going on for a year now, and the other half for only about a week.

For about a year now my computer has been freezing, entirely, can't move the mouse, ctrl alt delete, anything, have to turn it off manually, I took it into a shop, the guy said it was the hard drive, replaced it with a half memory used one, and told me it'd work.

Suffice to say it didn't at all.

Well after chalking out a hundred bucks for that I decided to just let it go, didn't bother me too much.

But about a week ago, upon any form of start up, it logs in fine and everything, but then it takes about 10-15 minutes for any program but maybe google chrome to start up in any fashion.

This is what has made it quite annoying, seeing as I'm a gamer, and taking forever to get back into a game can be quite aggravating.

It's also not the video card, as I took out my GEforce 8500 GT and replaced it with an old Radeon x600 to test it, which also did not help anything at all.

Any help truly, would be appreciated

Edit: Also, the computer has been reformatted multiple times, which did not help it, it would lessen the degree of freezes, but not by much

Edit2: Also forgot, my specs.

I have two Windows 8 installs, one on my desktop HDD, and another on my laptop's. My laptop broke, so i took the HDD and hooked it up to the extra SATA on my desktop for extra storage. For one reason or another, my desktop install decided to stop working, and I couldn't find the disk I used to upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1 so I could refresh/restore it. I went to boot to my laptop install to use it for a while (as safe mode wouldnt work on my desktop install anyways) and that worked for a few days, but now the start screen freezes and I have to open task manager and move it to my other screen with Win+Shift+left, and end explorer.exe. Of course, since that doesnt work, I cant use the create a recovery disc utility. I need some help (today if possible) ASAP, because we're about to go on a trip, and I want to have my ipod working (itunes is broken on my laptop install, and my ipod classic's firmware needs to be reloaded). Thanks in advance!

A:Windows 8.1 Start Screen Freezing

I think you issue started because the laptop drive had windows on it your desktop tried to boot it up ,causing a conflict you desktop windows 8 .did you try hit f12 to get boot options on the desktop ,and choose the repair/restore ect ect ,oh yeah don't restore if you have data that needs backing up first .
check this tutorial ,'how to create a win8 repair disk' you will need a working computer to do this .a friend or family member with a working win8 computer perhaps

I guess I'll start off by saying what kind of computer I have, if that helps. It's a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop running Windows 7.

For the last week or so, its been having these freezing problems out of nowhere. Literally, out of nowhere. I didn't download anything to prompt the problems or do anything special. I was doing the same thing I do every other day when it just froze for the first time. When it freezes, everything freezes to the point where I can't even do CTRL+ALT+DELETE to shut it down, I have to hold down the power button. When it starts up, it goes through the first few screens fine, but always stops on the Welcome screen. Sometimes it will sit there for about 15-20 minutes, and other times it'll never leave that screen and I have to shut it down with the button again. The few times I've been able to restart it the usual way, by clicking restart, the shut down will take about 15-20 minutes, too. It's gotten to the point where it takes me about 2 hours every time I start up the computer to be able to use it, because even after it starts up, it freezes immediately. Either that, or I'll have to sit around waiting forever for the icons in the tray to finish loading up, or even the images for the icons on the desktop to appear. I've tried booting up in Safe Mode, but it even freezes when using that. I've done a few System Restores, and they've had no effect. In fact, I tried to do another one in Safe Mode this morning ...

So whenever I start up my hp pavilion g6 the screen stays black and I get the blink code on the caps lock key, I have researched this and found out that it was either a board system failure or a cpu not functional.  I have reseated my memory modules to see if that would work, it didnt. I have tried starting up from bios menu and running the memory and hard drive test,  but everytime this happens my computer freezes and I have to restart because it never unfreezes. This happens every single time I try to launch in safe mode or repair mode and I cant do anything about it. I have attempted to system restore off of repair mode but everytime I get close to it an error pops up asking to disable drivers and how it has been canceled to prevent damage to my computer. I cannot do anything about fixing the first problem because the freezing problem doesnt allow me. I have also tried running the diagnostics off of the bios but again the freezing thing stops it.

A couple years ago I had some sort of virus and the great people on this forum got me all cleaned up and running smoothly, so I'm hoping to get some assistance again. The system is frequently freezing up to where I have to shut it down with the power button on the tower. I'll still be able to move the mouse but clicking things doesn't accomplish anything. Sometimes this happens after it's been on and working fine for a while, and sometimes it will occur before the whole system completely loads and it will take a few tries to get booted up. I ran a few cleaner programs but haven't had any results yet, and when I tried to run malwarebytes anti-malware a couple times, it froze mid-scan. Here's the DDS log I ran.

I have managed to complete the windows installation. (I was re-installing windows after my computer crashed) The only problem now is that when I switch the computer on, it freezes at the Black Windows screen (the one with the red, green,blue and yellow motif) the three small blue dots come up but freeze seconds later. I can get into safe mode but dont know what I can do to check this.

I would be very grateful if you have any suggestions.

A:Windows freezing at the start up screen.

Why did you reinstall Windows? From your perspective...what was the problem and symptoms?

What method did you use to reinstall (recovery/restore CDs, recovery/restore partition, Microsoft XP install CD, some CD provided by system manufacturer, etc.)?

System manufacturer and model...or (if custom-built) motherboard manufacturer and model?

Hi all

I've come across this forum as I try to Google a solution to my problem and was wondering if anyone out there could help...!
I'm on a Samsung RF511 laptop with Windows 7. I'm able to sign in without problem to Safe Mode, and between that and a few other investigations, I think it's a problem with Windows rather than hardware. I manage to sign in to Windows, but then after a short while whilst it starts up everything gradually freezes and I have the twirly thing instead of the pointer for the cursor. Ctrl Alt Del doesn't open up the task manager either and the only solution is to hold the off switch down and start again. I've tried running a virus scan (Avast), but it crashes before it will open in normal mode and says it won't work in safe mode.

Some info (apologies if I'm being simple, my knowledge is limited!):
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel (R) Core i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz
8GB Memory

I found a previous thread that had some suggestions, but the solution wasn't something that would work for me. I did however see a recommendation to run a system scan using HijackThis and post the log, so I've done that in case it is any use. I'll post the log in the next message...

Thanks for any help!!!

Hi guys,
I've got this problem with my SONY VAIO VGN-NR260D laptop that was purchased just a couple of months ago. Up until yesterday it was working perfectly fine. I was using Microsoft Office 2007 Power Point yesterday, just reading slides, and had to leave the computer for a little while so I put it on Sleep mode. When I came back and got it back to operational mode it worked fine for a minute but then as I was trying to connect to the wireless internet network in my school it froze. At first I didn't think anything of it (it has never happened before during the same set of events I just described, which I have done hunderds of times by now), but when I restarted it and tried connecting again, it froze again. I had restarted it like 7 times afterwards without connecting, or having my wireless turned off completely, but it would freeze anyways. So after that the problem persisted even when I just tried to open any folder or even go to Star menu, or even just freeze on random after being on for a few minutes after complete start up. I have ran system restore to a few days before (since I thought the problem was due to a just installed scheduled security update) but it didn't solve the problem. I have tried running the Last Known Good Configuration, but that worked only for like a minute longer (might have been just a coninsidence), and also performed virus scans, at the end of which the comp froze again.
Note, that it runs normally in Safe Mode, so I... Read more

A:Sony VAIO Freezing up after start up

Reformat is a last ditch effort when nothing else works. Even using 'Last known good configuration' can be put off while attempts are made to find a cause of the problem. Unfortunately, since you went back to 'last known', you will have lost some valuable information. So you're going to have to work with what appears since them:

The Event Viewer, found in the Control Panel> Administrative Tools has logs of everything that happens on the computer> the system, apps and security audits. By finding Errors in the Event Viewer that occur at the time of the problem, we can usually get enough information to find the cause, and hopefully the resolution:

Since you can get into Safe Mode with no problem, do that. Once in, follow this: You are going to look for Error Events that happened at the time of a freezes:
Here is the path: Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Event Viewer> right click> Properties on any Error> click on the Copy icon below the down arrow on the right> Paste here (Ctrl V)

Ignore Warnings. Ignore Information events. You do not need to include the lines of code in the box below the Description. IF you have multiples of the same Error> same ID#, same Source and same Description, you need only copy and paste one.

We'll go from there.

Did you had any raid system?

If you attach your old HD does it work?

If you try to startup in SafeMode or VGA (safe video) does it work?
If you just fresh installed your win7 and then copied from old to new... I think it could be a controller problem or more probably something wrong with some driver (here's why try testing safe mode) or your new HD!

i don't know much about computers, but i also can't download in safemode with the tool that was offered by this site so i'm not sure what all i should be including. i have an hp pavilion g7-1219wm notebook with windows 7. maybe about a month ago or a bit longer, the computer froze up while i was watching a movie on netflix. for a few days then, it'd been going slow and freezing momentarily but this time it would freeze for long periods of time and a few times i shut it off by holding down the power button (which i know you aren't supposed to do, stupid me) then when it wouldn't restart, at all.

i did a recovery and re-installed most of what was in windows updates (except for two/three which refuse to install) but all of a sudden, it began freezing again. when i attempt to start normally, it seems fine - for under five minutes then everything freezes. i can move the mouse around but that's the only thing i can do. i've been using it fine in safe mode with networking thinking this month, we'd be able to get it fixed but that's not happening and to top it off, it's begun to freeze even in safe mode with networking.

please help, i'm not sure what to do and i fear before i can get it fixed, i'm going to lose it

Any help is appreciated

My pc seems to keep freezing majority of the time when I start up. Seems to start up desktop then begin to load, then after a few seconds just freezes. Very baffled as it has just started doing this since the other day. Originally I tried a defrag. virus and spyware scans and also a reg cleaner and that did nothing. Then I tried formatting and starting a fresh assuming that would sort the problem but alas, still locking up on startup. At the moment has only frozen on start up and not at any other time, eventually once it loads up without freezing everything runs fine.

I have also tried removing each piece of RAM at a time and restarting and still froze :-(

Doesnt appear to be fan related, as the fan doesnt seem to be struggling or making loud noises or anything. Although I wouldnt know what signs to look out for.

Not really sure what else I can try. Am worried it might cause more damage if i dont find solution asap.

specs: Windows XP Home with service pack 2

Please respond with any ideas etc. or email me at [email protected]

My computer has recently started having a litany of problems after my kids borrowed it for a month or so, during which time the virus protection lapsed and was not renewed. For the most part, once I sign in, it takes anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to get to my start page. Then, I will receive several error messages about various programs that will not start. Sometimes, I can go in and turn off some programs through Task Manager, but sometimes it either completely freezes up or reboots. I can only get online if I go through and close several programs and even then, its a crap shoot on whether or not it will continue to work for more than a few minutes. I was able to download an antivirus program, but I really do not know what else I need to do in order to fix whatever damage was done. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there!
First post:

I've been running win7 x64 for some months now and it has worked beautifully up until tonight, when I had to change homegroups to be able to connect to the printer that we use on another computer. Immediately after I connected to the new homegroup (or rather a few seconds later) the computer froze up totally, no mouse/keyboard and the clock stopped ticking. -Had to manually reboot.

Eventviewer gave me a TON of errors, mainly EventID 7001, but also a few others:

7001:
The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

6000:
The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> was unavailable to handle a notification event.

1101:
Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

7026:
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
aswSP
discache

-I also noticed a few errors pointing towards DaemonTools, which I promptly uninstalled.
System starts up just fine in safemode w networking (gotta love 640x480)
running chkdsk finds no errors
system temp is great (about 35 degrees C with a cpu temp of about 40 degrees)

Any ideas?

A:Win7 x64 Freezing on windows start

O

it looks like the event ID's are related to network logon. have you tried booting in your normal workgroup/homegroup?

One thing you can do safaely is to run a system file check by going to start>search>cmd>right click run as admin>sfc /scannow.

this verifies and repair system files
