# Wifi constantly going out, freezing computer?

Q: Wifi constantly going out, freezing computer?

I have just about had it with my computer, honestly. Just recently, in the past month or so, my computer has started putting my wifi into limited. For no reason. Yes, I have tried all the fixes on the main post. Yes, I've turned off the 'allow disabling' of it. It just is a mess. Not only will it go to limited, but it will completely hard lock my computer (but only sometimes) I didn't really connect the two until recently, because I realized it always happened once the limited showed up on my wifi. I have no idea what's causing it. I've made sure it's no viruses, and I still have no clue. I really want to fix this. Thank you.

Hi all - you might notice this is my first post here, so patience is appreciated
So here's my story...I have cable internet through Cox, renting a Netgear CG3000D gateway from them. Starting about a month after installation the internet started freezing over wifi. I say freezing because it would just suddenly stop, and the only way to get it to start coming through again is to reset wifi from the device. This happens with every device we use...smartphones, tablets, laptops, wii, and lately it's been at least a dozen times a day. I've spent hours on the phone with Cox, had their techs out to the house three times now, and still no solution. I'll admit that I'm no expert when it comes to this stuff, but I really don't appreciate them charging me $50 a pop to come to my house and ask if I tried resetting the modem, suggesting I just unplug it for a minute, tell me it's working fine after they hold a signal on their phone for 10 seconds...one spent a couple hours knocking around outside before coming back in to say he ran all new cables, drilled holes through my house to move the modem to a better spot, and everything should be fine. It's not. Anyway...after hours of research online I'm convinced the problem is somewhere in the modem's settings, or just a faulty modem. I've lost hope in getting any help from Cox, so am here hoping that someone with some real knowledge can help me. There are no issues with the wifi signal it...

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 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 am having a very difficult time using my laptop. Dell Inspiron 6400. 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.

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!

Read more 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.

I've did a full scan with Dr. Web Cureit(took around 12 hours) back in late August and a few things were found which I deleted.

I mean, are you running some applications when it freezes? 10 more replies Answer Match 62.16% 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!

Read more 6 more replies Answer Match 60.9% 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.

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.

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).

More replies Answer Match 60.9% 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: http://www.winvistaclub.com/t9.html I hope this helps!

You should never run two antiviruses at the same time. They conflict with each other and cause all sorts of problems as well as decrease your protection. You need to pick one and get rid of the other. Also you need to disable some of those unnecessary apps you have running at startup.

Recently it has been freezing several times a day, sometimes while on the internet (with both Firefox and Internet Explorer), sometimes when just working on a Word doc, sometimes with nothing open and the screen saver is on. When I hit Ctrl+Alt+Del the task manager doesn't even come up and I have to press the power button on the tower to get it to shut off. Ran several virus scans (AVG, avast!) and they say no virus, but a friend who is good with computers said it sounds like a virus. Cannot do a system restore, it goes through the process and then says "unable to restore to specified date". I have tried at least 10 dates and none work. A few times after it freezes there is a loud beep coming from the tower, I read in a previous forum that could be a fan problem, but I am also having other issues besides the beeping.

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

Keep disconnect. Driver uninstall. Reinstall. Now WiFi keep become limited. What do? Let me first tell a little bit of history about my laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R). I got it a month and a half ago, and lived in a dorm room with only one LAN port. I used the LAN port and downloaded a Virtual WiFi Router program to share the connection with my roommates. There were no problems at all. Then I came back home two weeks ago and connected using WiFi (the modem is in my brother's room, and we have no cable long enough to connect to it). That's when problems start occurring. The WiFi would drop every three or four; this was not so serious. But in recent days, it would begin dropping every hour, give or take another 10 minutes. This problem becomes more common when I'm playing League of Legends, where it would drop every 20 minutes or so. What I don't understand is that it drops the connection for seemingly no reason. When I check the WiFi list, the connection is still there, it's just that I'm not connected and have to reconnect manually. Another weird issue is that it takes me about a minute or two to reconnect; usually it's instant. In addition, it will attempt to connect for a long time (just says there "Checking network requirements..."), then it will say the connection attempt has failed, BUT it actually succeeded in connecting. I've Googled and found out that others are experiencing the problem too, and managed to fix it by changing the powe...

It'll freeze for a few seconds, sometimes ten to fifteen, and then it'll go back to normal. It doesn't matter what I am doing; the problem happens regardless. I can't save anything to disk to back up for a re-install of Windows or anything because the freezing screws up the saving. In addition, I cannot reboot or shut down the computer manually; the process hangs at the "Windows is shutting down" phase, and doesn't move along, no matter how long I wait.

Cheers! 4 more replies Answer Match 49.14% Hi, I'm not entirely sure I've posted this in the correct section of the forum but I'm not really sure what the problem is, so apologies if this is in the wrong place. I have a HP Pavilion g series laptop, I got it in February of this year and it has been running brilliantly until a week or two ago. It has started freezing just after startup, the mouse still moves but if I click anything I just get a spinning blue circle and Ctrl + Alt + Del does absolutely nothing. I got told to try Ctrl + Shift + Esc instead but that doesn't work either. The computer runs fine in Safe Mode with absolutely no issues, and if I manually restart, boot in Safe Mode and then restart into normal mode sometimes it will come on and work normally. I have looked at several forums already and following suggestions to others I've tried clean booting, which didn't help, and disabled the Computer Browsing - which seemed to fix the problem for a day. I can't System Restore because my laptop has no restore points saved which seems bizarre especially as I'm sure a couple of times I have specifically told it to save a point. I checked the Event Logs (again following suggestions on other forums) and it seems that the system crashed on the 24th of May there is an error stating: The previous system shutdown at 19:40:45 on &#8206;24/&#8206;06/&#8206;2012 was unexpected.

Often, I am just browsing the internet (no other apps open), and the computer completely freezes. I can't move the mouse at all, and CTRL-ALT-DEL doesn't do anything at all. The only solution is to do a hard reset of the computer. Additionally, the laptop often fails to go into hibernate. The screen goes black but the various activity indicator lights stay on. I can't "wake up" the computer by pressing the power button, and moving the mouse of pressing other buttons doesn't do anything. Again, the only solution is a hard reset. Often, when I start up the computer again, it freezes completely at the loading windows screen. I have to do a hard reset yet again, and then I have to run the "windows failed to start" utility and do a system restore before I can use the computer again. Does anyone have any ideas how to resolve this? It's driving me crazy! P.S. I cannot install SP1 for some reason (Microsoft and Dell support are clueless about this, and the only way to do this seems to be completely reformatting), so I am running Vista Home Premium without the SP1 update. Not sure if that makes any difference for the freezing problem though. A:Vista Constantly Freezing What's your startup programs? 1 more replies Answer Match 49.14% I hope this is in the right place.

It froze once on the first day of use and I chalked it up to errors with Windows 10. It froze once more before I updated Windows and today after updating Windows it froze four times in one day. There's no error message or anything, it just freezes completely without a BSOD and the only way to use it again is to shut it off and turn it back on. Aside from uninstalling bloatware and updating Windows with windows update, I haven't made any modifications to the software or anything. I haven't dropped it and it's always been put in a case when stowed in my backpack. I've babied this thing every step of the way. What's causing this?

A:New Yoga 900 Constantly Freezing

Hi yogaflame, welcome to the forum.

If all of the "bloatware" you are referring to, includes the Lenovo Companion, and Settings, you probably didn't receive the updates provided by Lenovo.

Still, if you go here:

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-900-13isk?

... and compare your installed driver versions, to the Lenovo driver list, then update to the new, you should be all set.

Make note that there is a new BIOS, C6CN34WW, so if you're not on that revision, update the BIOS first.

Cheers

Hi guys
Im not really good when it comes to dealing with computer problems
I need some help
I bought a new laptop recently (Qosmio f60 series)
and the specs are

Intel core i5 2.27GHz
6 GM ram
64-bit Operating system
GeForce GT 330M graphic card

Now the problem is that the laptop freezes up when Im either shutting it down or leaving it idle for more than 10 minutes
and sometimes when I force it to restart from freezing up
It is completely fine when Im doing my tasks or even playing high-end games on ultra graphic settings(although the temperature of the laptop gets really high..)

And sometimes when I force it to re-start it will go into a 32 bit system mode(some kinda fail-safe system?)

I have tried to create a system repair disc to solve the problem but it did nothing...
I need help PLEASE!!!

For a good few months I've had Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my laptop, and for those few months I've had absolutely no problems whatsoever. However, recently my laptop has begun to freeze a number of times while in use. The freezes seem to happen when certain applications are in use, (Browsing in any internet browser, using instant messengers, ETC) I even think it's starting to suspect it's helping to produce I/O device errors as I've gotten a couple of those today, Once while extracting something from a rar and again while burning a DVD.

This has never happened before, and my computer hasn't undergone any significant changes to cause it either, so I'm pretty stumped. So, I'm here asking for help, on my first post no less.

Hi there,

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

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

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

Hello and welcome to the forum..

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

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

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

A couple weeks ago I found I had the doginhispen virus, with the main symptom being 100% CPU use, with my system constantly seizing up. I thought i had resolved the problem, but the 100% CPU problem is still happening with my system continually slowing down to a crawl or outright freezing, though I can't find any traces of the virus.

Here's my HijackThis log. Any help you can offer would be extremely appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi there! New here, so I will try my best to describe what is going on. First off, I want to say that i am NOT at all computer saavy..I know the basics, so I apologize for the tons of questions I will probably end up asking..if you can help me , that is.
I am running Win XP Home, AMD Athlon XP Processor 1.67GHz, 256 MB RAM. If you need any other info, PLEASE let me know.
A few weeks ago, all of a sudden , my pc started running a bit sluggish, mouse was really lagging too. The pc started freezing up on me...the pointer would still move freely , but if I go to click on anything, nothing happens, it just sits. Also, the comp will just restart. I will be reading mail, on a message board , looking something up..and it will happen, so I'm not noticing and particular moment that it does this. The thing is , it is to the point now where i am lucky to get online! It will freeze before I can even connect now.There is also a box popping up saying this...
"rundll- error loading nview.dll- a dynamic link library initialization routine failed"
and also...

I have no clue what these mean, why they are coming up all of a sudden or what to do about them.
When it freezes up, the only way I can shut it down is to use the power button on the cpu. I am at my wit's end here !! If there is anybody with some advice that might help, I would greatly ... Read more

A:Freezing up and pc restarting constantly..

Hi,

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

Quote:

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

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

Quote:

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

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

Good Day,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank You for any help ....

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

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

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

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

A:Vista constantly freezing on me

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

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

Edit: my problems are on a HP pavilion 15-e092sa

Hi. I ran the scans as instructed. I have no idea what they say. The computer constantly freezes up, which the only solution is to restart. Even Task Manager freezes.
