Computer freezes or constantly restarts

Q: Computer freezes or constantly restarts

So I have a windows 7 computer and the problem is that for some reason my computer freezes up or restarts itself and when it is back on, the lan hardware is no longer working (it appears to say that either the lan is not plugged in or that the hardware is broken). So, I restart my computer again and the lan problem is no longer an issue. However, the computer goes back to the same cycle after a few minutes or hours. I have check for viruses, spyware, checked for registry problem, defragmented my computer and the problem still occurs. I am pretty good with computers but this problem appears to not go away and it is pretty annoying. Please help me out.

My computer is custom made
it is using windows 7 ultimate, it has a Intel motherboard which is DP35DP media series.
I have 8gigs of ram, Intel core 2 quad cpu model number Q9550 @ 2.83ghz.
1.5 tb of harddrive, ATI RADEON HD 4800 series graphics card, and a network adapter pci (since my motherboard network lan is not working)

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

A: Computer freezes or constantly restarts

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

My computer has been freezing and restarting a lot lately. It cannot go more than 1 hour without doing so. It happens especially when I go to game. I'm not sure what could be causing it. I do know that it is not an overheating issue in the computer. I have 3 fans running in it. It is also not a memory issue I have 2gb of RAM and 300g Hardrive. It is also not a dust issue, I've my computer and everything seems to be clean. I have also disable that my computer does not restart during systems failures through the BIOS and also through my computer. Not sure what is causing it, but any help would great greatly appreciated. (Surprised I was able to post hehe)

A:Computer constantly freezes and restarts on its own.

A computer that freezes is usually caused by overheating or a failing Power Supply Unit. Even though you have done this, Take the side off the of the computer and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning. Look at the label for the PSU and report the Make, Model# and Wattage. Boot into Setup (Bios) and go to PC Health or some such, Post +12V line for the PSU and the temperatures.
Also try running in a Clean Boot.

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

Western digital 200g hard drive (did a full diagnostic on this it passed)

600w power supply
dual 7600gs nvidia cards in sli
benq dvd rw cd rw drive
Windows xp service pack 2 fully updated (I legally own this so its not an illegal copy of windows

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

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

Hey everyone! I am new to the forum and needed some help

Recently on my computer all my programs have been "Not Responding" every 5 - 10 minutes and it gets very annoying.

My computer also randomly freezes and also restarts all on its own.

-----
I tried many anti virus/malware etc... programs and none have solved the problem!

What I used:
Anti Malware Bytes
Anti Root Kit
Super Anti Spyware
AVAST anti virus
CCleaner (Reg cleaner, etc)

Nothing has fixed my issue. I usually can fix issues on my own but this is really getting on my nerves and I don't know what to do..

I have googled my issue and I seen many posts about my issue here but nothing worked for me.

PS: I also sometimes get random BSODS but happens very randomly sometimes often, and sometimes it doesnt happen in a week.
If you guys can help me out with my problem I will really appreciate it. I honestly don't want to restore my whole PC because I have a lot of important things on here which I can't back up.

A:All programs not responding - PC constantly restarts and Freezes

find the dumps from the BSODS and post them and i will see if I can get one of the analysts to have a look.

Hi all, my left 4 dead has been constantly restarting my computer whenever I'm loading up a map, and on the 50/50 chance that it doesn't restart upon loading up a map, it will restart my computer randomly while playing halfway.

There are times when Left 4 Dead doesn't even restart my computer either.

There's no blue screen of death, automatically restart has been disabled and well, possibly overheat, but I doubt that's likely when an external fan blowing at the PC along with air conditioning on.

Motherboard and every internal component looks clean (other than the dusty fan at the front).

Has anyone got this problem before? Has anyone solved it more importantly ..

Im pretty sure this isnt the right place to post this but i cant find anywhere else appropriate so sorry :S

Ive just built a new computer with the help of this forum (im in the building section) and after a week of using it - i tried to install a demo of bioshock i had on a cd. The demo didnt work though and i saw in the folder there was a program called "dual core optimizer". I decided that might help and ran it - it then told me to restart my computer and i did so and it hasnt stopped yet.

What it does is it turns on, logs in and shows the welcome screen - then once i see the desktop for a few seconds it lags and restarts again. I'm really worried because i just finished moving all my files to that computer - i cant really system restore because of all my files and im hoping theres a way i can fix my computer since i can still get to the desktop for like.. 3 seconds.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help, im really desperate.

Im using windows xp home edition and my specs are..

e8500 core 2 duo processor
Gigabyte GA-EP45D-S3R motherboard
Radeon 4850 graphics card

A:Computer constantly restarts

Isn't this dual core optimizer only suitable for AMD based systems? Do some research and and have a look if its only meant for AMD. If it is, then theres the problem.

As for a fix, can you get into safe mode? (tap F5 on startup, choose safe mode). If so, get in there and uninstall the optimizer. Fingers crossed!

My computer is consantly restarting itself. Over the past day and a half it has been so bad I cannot stay on the computer for more than 5-10 minutes without it restarting. It works perfectly in safe mode. My mom told me it could be I have to run the automatic uupdates. I also read that it could be a overheating problem. I left the computer off for a few hours and when I turned it back on it shut off 5 minutes later. I tried running the Automatic Ipdates but it doesn't stay on long enough for them to finish. When I go to the Microsoft website to get the Automatic Updates the site keeps giving me a website has encountered a problem and cannot load message. THere is 3 GB left on my cp and it always restarted itself but not as bad as it has been latley. What should I do?

A:Computer Constantly Restarts

Welcome to TSF....

In order to figure out why you are getting random reboots, you need to make a settings change to your computer. Go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Setup and Recovery 'Settings'

UN check 'Automatically Restart'. Click OK.

Reboot your computer. Now when Windows detects a problem it will not automatically reboot, but rather give you a blue screen.

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:

0x0000008e

This is usually followed by a set of 4 similar numbers in parenthesis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthesis).

For about 2 months, my computer has been shutting down/restarting itself constantly. Whenever I have 3 or more programs running, it shuts down or restarts itself. Also, my internet is becoming SO slow and while a page is loading, my computer would shut down/restart itself. I'm pretty sure my computer is infected with some kind of a virus/spyware. I just downloaded HiJackThis but being a computer dummy, I have NO IDEA which ones I should keep or delete! Please help?

I am running windows XP.

I believe I have contracted a virus on other malware. My computer constantly attempts to restart itself. I am able to access the internet and some other features through task manager. Starting in the safe mode I have selected did not fix the problem.

What should I do to make amends to this issue?

I currently have installed

Ad-ware 2007
Spybot Search & Destroy
Hijack this
AVG
Mcafee

My concern is that some of these won't run properly when the computer tries to restart every 10 seconds or so. Perhaps I can get that to stop somehow long enough to try and run the anti-malware devices...

Thanks in advance.

ok my computer is really been annoying lately, it constantly restarts. sometimes it will stay on for 5 minutes and sometimes only 5 seconds it will generally restart as soon as i try to start a program. there have been times where it seemed to have fixed itself and the computer ran for over an hour or until i shut it down. even if i shut the computer down myself and try to start it up again, after it has been running fine for hours, it will start constantly restarting once again. this is an old computer, pentium 3 processor 256mb ram new video card new power supply and just recently windows xp was installed on it. there is also a blue screen displaying a message that starts out with the word STOP: and then some code im not sure exactly what else the message says because usually the computer restarts before i can see it all.
Hopefully someone recognizes my problem and can give me some helpful info, it will be greatly appreciated

one other thing recently i got the computer to run fine by as soon as windows started up i put a blank cd in and started burning a cd, the cd did start to burn but in 3 hours time it was only 7% done and was burning super slow but everything else ran perfectly which led me to believe something was wrong with the hardrive but im no genius when it comes to computers so really i have no idea at this point whether that will help find out the problem.

once again thank you and any info will be greatly appreciated

This is more of an hardware question. I've had this problem for about 1 month, been trying to work around it. Now it's just bloody annoying!

Anyways, I recently purchased a MSI K7N2-L Delta and ever since I've installed it. It restarts constantly. Especially during heavy burdens(Using Alot Of Resources) I'm tried disabling my BIOS Cache, underclocking my RAM clock 400 to 333mhz. I've tried replacing the ram. I've tried multiple diagnotics tools. Nothing...!

Here's a complete SPECS of my computer:

Floppy 1.44
Windows XP Pro SP1

My BIOS is up-to-date v5.6. My graphic drivers are up-to-date. Everything is completly up-to-date. My problem occurs very often during game play (High graphic games) such as, Soldier Of Fortune 2, Call Od Duty, America's Army, GTA3, etc. Only thing I can think of is my power supply is not enough. So I put in a order for a 450watt. But I've also tried unplugging 2 slave drives. My LG CD-Rw and my Maxtor 80.0gig. Still get the same result.

I would suspect a temperature issue first.

Temperature of CPU/GPU or chipset.

You cannot rely on motherboard temperature sensors absolutely, they are a "general indication" only.

Try more CPU cooling, AMD's are hot runners at the best of times.

Yesterday I used my computer like always and nothing was wrong, however, when I turned on my computer today I was surprised to see a message on my screen.

The screen asks me if I would like to boot my computer in the following ways:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last known good configuration OR
Normally

However, no matter which option I choose, the Windows load screen shows up for about 3 seconds before my computer restarts itself.

What is causing it and is thier a solution? Thanks in advance!

A:Computer constantly restarts

It's possible that there is a virus causing this but it could also be a hardware issue as well. Before it started doing this were you seeing any strange pop up's or anything out of the ordinary going on? It's always possible to pull the hard drive, slave it on to anothe rcomputer and then run MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware scans with the other computer. If the other computer doesn't see the drive then it may be an issue with the drive itself. If you are able to run the scans then it's most likely a virus that's got it locked down.

My computer is always restarting itself, over and over again.

What could be the cause of this? I listen carefully to the power supply and notice something just switches off and then restarts again, but I cannot pin it down.

Does this seem to be a hardware or software problem? Currently running a Duron Processor. I installed XP and for 30 minutes it worked fine, then keeps restarting no matter what I do?

This has been an ongoing problem.
Any help would be great.

Virus identified I-Worm/Sasser.B

is found in file

To remove this virus, please run AVG for Windows.
But when I run the scan, it says it can't be removed. I went to the file and deleted it myself. But everytime I do that, it deletes. But then pops right back up into the folder as if it wasnt deleted! So.. What do I need to do? Anything will help. Thanks!

I went to install a new hard drive in my PC and when I went to boot it up it did not recognize the hard drives. So logically I assumed jumper settings. I corrected this problem and when I went to restart the computer just sat and reset itself over and over again. This went on until I turned it off at the power supply. It does not display any video and just tries to read the floppy over and over. I pulled the mem and I get a check beep from the mobo. I tried a different video card and same thing. I disconnected everything but mem cpu and vid card and still same thing. I tried running the mobo outside the case to see if there was a short and still same thing. Anyone have a suggestion or am I looking at a new mobo? If need new one then any thoughts on what to get? I was looking at gigabyte.

I googled it and was told how to remove it by using a certain malware removal program. It also said its harmless, however while trying to scan it closed a couple of times randomly and while i went on the internet again it crashed and restarted my computer. It then did it again however, when i turn it on i get stuck in an infinite loop. It constantly restarts, i have to choose wether to run it in safe modes etc, or normal mode. However all options flash up a blue screen after the windows loader and then restarts and i am back at the option screen. Through i little googling i found it could be due to a power cord failure or something, however im on a laptop so it still has recharged power. I think its more likely to be a trojan called "sasser" talked about here. (cant post a link) however if you google "constantly restarting computer" its the 5th result, its by wikianswers.

However i cannot get onto my desktop or CMD in anyform even in safe modes it constantly restarts.

Im pretty computer illiterate but any help would be greatly appreciated. Even if it is just to confirm my suspicion of it being completely screwed

ps. Sorry if this is the wrong section.

Hello everyone,
I am back with more computer issues.

So yesterday. My room mate decided to run an Ethernet cable from our router upstairs and change our router location. (this I dont believe has much relevance to my issue, but explaining what happened yesterday). He said he only removed my Ethernet cable and did not touch anything else.

So as to my surprise yesterday, I turn my computer on... it loads normally but then my monitors begin to flash and turn off.
I have a 26" and a 22" one VGA, one HDMI running on a 2gb MSI gtx 770.
The monitors turned off for about 15 seconds, then I saw my desktop again, then it turned off and actually restarted.

It loaded, I thought maybe for some odd reason an auto update restarted it. When it signs back in, it begins happening again.
I assume a virus, or something screwy along those lines. So I boot to safe mode. I run MSE and malware byes...nothing.

I check the cables in the back, everything is in correct and tight. I browsed around and found nothing online giving me any idea what could be causing it.


Has anyone ever experienced this issue, or know what could be causing it? I cleaned my computer out recently, I dont think theres too much dust in there. Anything you would recommend, or where to star in determining the issue?

Thanks.

A:Computer constantly restarts --- works fine in safe mode.

Sounds like you might have a hardware issue of some sort that started happening. When you cleaned out the system; did you remember to do it with the system off? If not; the blowing around of dust inside the case could have shorted something. Only reason i say this is because I mistakenly did that once and i heard a loud pop sound and suddenly my system shut off. Fortunately for me it didnt do any permanent damage. But back to this issue; I would check your power supply; as often when a computer suddenly reboots without reason it could very well be due to a partially faulty power supply that is starting to go bad; and or a possible motherboard issue. For the power supply i would try and get hold of a volt meter and test to make sure your power supply is still putting out proper voltage. However; if it is a motherboard issue; there is not much that can be done short of replacement as the mb is the heart of the system next to the cpu.

My computer has been constantly freezing the past couple of days. It is a Dell Dimension 2400 with Windows XP Home and 2 GB of RAM. It started freezing shortly after I would reboot. Both the keyboard and mouse wouldn't respond.It had been a while since I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows, so I decided to try that. The weird part is, the computer actually freezes up during the reinstall process. It gets to 33 minutes of the reinstall of Windows XP and then asks me to set the Regional Settings. When I try to move the mouse to click Next, the mouse doesn't move. If I try to just press Enter to click Next, nothing happens. Not sure what could be causing this. It appears the fan is working fine, so I don't think it's overheating. Thanks for any help.

please bump my post back to the top. It has been 48 hrs. Also, may I add that just as I hit submit from the computer in question, it froze again. I'm on another computer right now. There is no rhyme or reason for the freezes and I never know when it will happen. I can't run programs like anti spyware most of the time. Thanks.

My brother was over at my dorm earlier this week...I think went on my computer and downloaded some games, or music or something. It has been freezing more and more since then, especially while using media center, or other music programs. The screen stays the same, but becomes unresponsive, audio skips like a broken record. My cpu usage also seems to roller coaster. This problem is becoming worse and worse. Please help, I think you guys may know what to do. I've tried running all sorts of virus scans, etc(McAfee, avg, spybot, Malwarebytes.) I also ran MSConfig to try to weed out some startup programs... But the problem still persist.

Im extremely frustrated, computer keeps freezing not sure why. The freezing occurs randomly sometimes it occurs just after startup while other times i can play a game for a few hours before it freezes. Ive been in a repair shop a couple times and they havent solved the problem despite replacing the mother board and power supply. They also reformated the computer and still get the freezing problem. Also when it freezes i turn the power switch off on the back and then i get a noise from the speakers that sounds like someone tapping on a the desk. How can i discover the problem?

The computer is just over 2 years old.
I have a p4 3 ghz processor, 768 mb of ram, Ati radeon x700 video card.

Basically, my problem is that my computer just randomly freezes whilst I am using it.. I don't know if it is a heat-related issue or not because this morning it froze when my computer was only 20 degrees Celcius. I have tried using Ccleaner, disabling startup processes that I don't need, and use GameBooster. What else can I do?
Please help, this is really irritating :(

These are my PC Specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz
RAM: 1014MB
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series

Also, I am looking at temperatures for my computer, so I'll post a picture of them just in case it is a heat-related issue.

My computer has been constantly freezing each time I boot it up. there is no blue screen, it just freezes on whatever image its displaying. Sometimes I'll be lucky to get one minute out of it without it freezing. And when it freezes I have to reboot it. I tried Safe Mode and it doesn't freeze while in it.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks.

Welcome

Actually you gave us quite a few clues. Try a clean boot, if it freezes, then the problem is probably a driver, if it does not freeze follow the clean boot instructions and find the problem. I am guessing the anti virus.

Hello, a couple of days ago, my sister went to some website to watch a tv show and the computer froze minutes after she left the website. I ran a scan with malwarebytes, and it found a bad registry on my computer. I choose to remove the registry, but the computer still freezes. So as of right now, I get no pops or error messages. The computer just freezes at random times. It usually does this an hour or twenty minutes after I start the computer or when its loading the OS. I was able to get a DDS log but when I went into safe mode and tried to get a GMER log, it froze right after it finished scanning. I hope you guys can help. Thanks in advance.

I had windows 7 for a month and everything was just fine. But my computer started freezing and restarting randomly just a few days ago. It got to the point when the screen would freeze at startup - you know, when the windows logo shows up? So I reformatted my computer to windows xp (all my files and programs are erased from existence!) but it still freezes at startup when the windows logo comes up. Sometimes i get "lucky" and i actually get to the desktop screen, I would poke around a little and then BOOM- the screen turns weird colors and my mouse cant move. I am forced to restart my computer and continue this crazy loop. I dont know where to look for help. I would greatly appreciate any assistance!

Hey everyone, I have a Windows 7 Home Premium service pack 1 Sony Vaio x64 laptop.  It constantly freezes and the problem has been getting more frequent.  There is no pattern that I can see.  It may run fine for a little while, or within a few minutes it will freeze.  The mouse will not move and Ctrl-Alt-Dlt doesn't respond.  I have to do a hard shutdown when it happens. What should I do? Thanks!

Like the topic title says, my computer has recently become very slow and is constantly freezing...I tried to clean it up using the preparation guide but, so far, nothing seems to have changed. I'm very careful with my downloads and web activity, so I have no idea why it's behaving like this - the biggest changes I've made were to install MS Office 2007 (which takes about 5 minutes to load each time) and I upgraded my Internet service (they offered a free Security package download, which I took advantage of).Well, here's my HijackThis log!

My computer recently began to freeze, about the time when I updated to Firefox 3.6. At first I thought it was just the internet that was messed up, but it began to freeze even though I wasn't using the internet. Randomly it would just freeze, sometimes after a few minutes others after a few seconds. I have to hit the power button because leaving it alone for a while won't work. I tried to clean the registry but it didn't work. I have a Windows XP, its a desktop computer, I have Intel, and its about 4 years old. if you need any more info please ask! I've had many problems with this computer but I can't afford to buy another one for another two years. Please help! I don't know what else to do.

A:my computer constantly freezes on start up

Welcome to TSF.

Let's try fixing some of these and also disable some programs to make sure they are not causing the startup problems:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below. Also if you have any programs that may prevent system changes (like Spybot's TeaTimer program, Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, and others), make sure you disable them before doing any of the fixes (or accept the changes for the fix we give you when asked by the programs).

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido (only if you have Windows 2000 or XP). If y... Read more

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.

Hi all, here are the various log files as instructed. My laptop (winxp system) is taking ages to start up and every time i try to open up a folder/browser or any other action, it freezes for a good while before it resumes the action. Essentially what usually would take a second to do is now taking 5 minutes. I've tried to run the avg virus scan but it just hangs after about 40+ minutes of scanning, the same thing happens to the lavasoft ad aware scan too. I appreciate any/all help.

Since day one I have encountered constant computer freezing and lock-ups, first it happened in the bios. After that; during the os install. Not just once but multiple times, requiring me to start from the beginning. I'm talking almost a dozen times just to get the os installed.

After the install, if it wasn't freezing during boot or during startup it was freezing at the desktop. If I was lucky I could get just a few minutes out of it before it would freeze. (I should mention after it froze if I didn't hold the pwr button down until it shut off I would have to wait a few minutes and it would shut itself off)

Needless to say I can't do much to try and figure out the problem.

My computer started to freeze within 5 minutes of logging on and never finished loading, well it appeared so. I first opened Task Managaer to see what was using up the cpu and it appeared to be services.exe. I ran an anti-virus scan and it found a trojan which was disinfected. I then searched for the file name services.exe and it found several, i was advised to keep the one in system 32 and delete the rest, which i did. However the computer still freezes after logging on and i have to enter safe mode to allow me to use the computer. I opened task manager and services.exe is not eating up the cpu this time and nothing else seems to be, but i may be mistaken.

Hi. I despratly need some help. I am 16 and my parents got a new compaq persario s4020wm desktop a little under a year ago. Ever since we have had it, it does nothing but freeze on us. We bought some memory, took it to a computer professional, spybot, etc. We sent it back to compaq and they did a complete check and it wasnt anything that they could fix. After the first 218 MB memory upgrade it did goof for about 3 or 4 months. It sometimes freezes over 10 times a day and gets so bad that I dont even start it up sometimes. I am trying to finish up papers and what not because im graduationg this year but I cant with this computer. Alot of people say "well I guess you just got a bad apple, go and get a dell". Me nor my parents have the money for a new computer right now and I dont see why this one isnt working. Please someone with some expiernce give me some input. I have 736MB or ram installed right now and it freezed twice while registering for this website.
 

A:I dont know what to do. Computer freezes constantly

I'll probably sound stupid for this but honestly, just sounds to me like you need to remove the case, get a nice big fan and set it right there up next to your computer, cause it sounds like you're overheating. Either that or try switching your ram around (take one strip and put it in the other's slot, take that strip put it in the other slot).

Figured I'd just throw it out there...

I wanted to post a log here from HijackThis but it says "your system denied write access to the Hosts".

Also both Malwarebytes & Avast! freeze the computer when I scan my computer for infections (this was happening a few months before the freezing every 5 mins started).

Really need to get this sorted now so I would appreciate any help!

Thanks,
Gubbo

Hi everyone. I'm new here, but this forum is the place I came to help a relative fix her laptop's freezing* issues. The computer is a couple years old, and it has never worked properly. It's a Dell Inspiron 1545 running Windows 7 SP1. She insists on using AOL as her browser and mail app, and I can't get her to switch to something more stable or less resource-hogging. The computer freezes constantly, but naturally I suspect there's a deeper problem than just her use of AOL. I think it might be a registry issue, but I don't have enough knowledge of computer registries to fix it. That's just my hunch, though. I have run anti-virus and anti-malware programs (Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) on it for the past year at least, and she has been virus and malware free for some time.

Recently, she received an error message from Windows Explorer. I can't tell you exactly what it said b/c she didn't write it down, but the short story is I ran the system file checker via the command prompt (sfc /scannow) and received a message saying that the Windows Resource Manager found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. I ran this in safe mode and after a normal boot-up. So here are my questions:

1) if I were to post a CBS log file from her system file checker on bleepingcomputer.com, is there someone who could help me interpret it?
2) should I post the CBS log file that I obtained from running Windows 7 in safe mode or under normal conditions... Read more

Hello, Techsupportforum. I've been plagued by this problem for years now and I just got sick of it. What's been going on is that my computer freezes, makes a jarring sound when it does, and will stay this way for anywhere between thirty seconds and ten or so minutes. This mostly happens when I am actively doing something on my computer such as browsing the web or playing a game. This can happen as many as a dozen times a day, or once a week. Below is a copy of my system from Speccy64. Some information not included is that I use Avast and Malwarebytes for anti-virus. In the past I've used SpyBot S&D, Microsoft Security Essentials, and AVG. All of them tell me my computer is virus free, so I'm pretty positive it isn't a virus-related problem. Thank you in advance for taking the time to help.

A:[SOLVED] My computer freezes constantly and inconsistently.

Hello mate.

Couple of Q's if you don't mind;
Where is the sound coming from; the PC, or speakers do you think?
The virtual drive; Is there an ISO attached to it constantly? GCP (I find) is to disabling any virtual drives you're not actively using.
Wouldn't hurt to check your NVidia drivers up to date also - You can do this by right-clicking anywhere on your desktop, select 'NVidia Control Panel', 'Help', 'System Info' and let me know the installed driver version.

That should get the ball rolling!

I recently moved to a new location and set up my computer.

Somewhere between BOOT and Windows XP starting up, my computer suddenly freezes. Sometimes it's delayed long enough for me to log into XP, only to crash a few seconds later. I assumed that maybe I attached something incorrectly, and checked the wires. They are fine.

Before my move, the computer never gave such problems. It's difficult for me to figure out exactly what to do or how to fix it when I can only use the computer properly for about a minute or so.

For a while, I tried going into Safe Mode or using a System Restore to move the computer back to a point where this issue did not occur. That worked for a time, and now it does not. The only way for me to use my computer now is to log into Safe mode with networking, and when I'm done, set the PC to stand by.

Another issue there - my computer refuses to stand by.

It would show off only to start right back up again on its own, and once the Welcome screen is displayed, either I can't type anything or the computer freezes.

I'm not sure why this is happening. Is there any solution to this?

Hi,I'm running windows XP, and recently received an email that I was told was not sent by the person it said on the email. I assumed it was a virus that attached to my friend's address book. Since then, my computer has slowed down considerably. It also freeezes a few times a day and I have to reboot the computer. I have AVG anti-virus, and have run several scans that have not found anything. I have also run malwarebytes and spybot which have also come back clean. I still feel there is something wrong.

Just recently my computer started doing this. Every 15-20 seconds or so, the computer will hang up for about 3 seconds, just did it right now, then has to catch up to what I'm typing or doing. As I watch it in the performance tab in the Task Manager, and it just did it again, the CPU Usage spikes from 10%-ish all the way to 100%. The page file usage memory remains constant. And it just froze again. Three times for typing just several sentences!! ARGHH!!!

Another thing to note is that my HDD LED light always stays on now, it used to flicker and go off, now it's on all the time, but the drive isn't making any kind of noise.

I have NOD32 anti-virus, Spybot S&D, and Webroot Spysweeper and they're all up to date and just ran them. I also have O&O Professional and just defragged as well.

No errors were found, yet I still get this VERY frustrating error.

A couple weeks back I got the good ol' "Malware Defense" thing pop up and tell me I had all sorts of problems. I looked around the 'net and found lots of potential solutions, and seemed to have it all taken care of after various scans with Malwarebytes and other software. However in the last few days the computer frequently freezes up, and it doesn't seem to happen during a certain activity or anything like that-just at random. I don't know if it's related. I've continued to run many scans, and sometimes they come up with nothing, and other times they will find problems and fix them, which makes me think new malware (or something bad...) keeps getting frequently added to the computer. Oddly, while I'm running scans and things like that, I don't believe it's ever frozen. But when the computer is really in use, that is when the problems arise. I've tried a few more things today to try and fix it, and haven't had any problems, though I haven't been on the computer all that much since the last 4 hours were taken up by scans.So, I'm hoping maybe someone here can take a look at the logs I have created using the guidelines from this forum, and see if anything stands out, or if there's anything else I need to do.The DDS.txt log is seen below, and the attach.txt and ark.txt files are attached.

A:Had Malware Defense, and now computer freezes constantly

Just to update really quickly, the problem HAS in fact continued (I had said originally I hadn't had any more problems that day). It froze probably 4 or 5 times yesterday in a fairly short amount of time being used. Also, if this information helps any, when it freezes, I still have usage of the mouse, as far as movement. Clicking on anything does nothing, but I can still move the curser around, as opposed to the type of freezing when nothing at all works.Thanks, hope someone can help!

It has been pretty sudden, my laptop the past 2-3 days now has been freezing suddenly after about 1-2 hours after start up. On one occasion it was still at the login screen and it was frozen. Mostly it has occurred when I was just simply on Facebook, checking email, and doing smaller tasks that I have had no issue with just last week. Once frozen, it does not respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Alt+F4, only a hard restart seems to make it work again.

I ran Malwarebyte, Viper Antivirus in Safe mode, nothing was found. I also ran CC registry cleaner and it found some issues with the Window System-32 files. It was de-fragmented about 6 days ago. The laptop itself is Toshiba Satellite and is about 3 years old, running Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. I'm not sure if it could be a hard drive starting to go out or something else, it just seems the issue has occurred rather suddenly which seems to make me think that something was downloaded/occurred very recently.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have been warned by my internet service that my PC has a malware called "Trojan: Mebroot" and my internet will later be suspended if I do not fix it.

If my computer is started normally, after a period of time it tends to freeze/crash and sometimes even display a bluescreen. Also, if i press ctrl+printscreen+c it will also freeze my computer.

At the moment, I am still using this computer but started on "Debugging Mode" and my computer doesn't freeze (unless I try to do a screenshot). My internet supplier (OPTUS) still warns me to remove the virus otherwise they will suspend my internet.

Hi!
I'm kind of new to this, but I think I've followed the 5 steps correctly (although i couldn't find out how to find the extra.txt-file).

My computer started to act weirdly about three days ago. Almost everytime I watch a movie or a clip my computer slows down really much, and a lot of times it freezes completely, forcing me to reboot. It also happens when I browse the internet, although not as often. Which is why I'm not able to finish the Panda Scan.

Hope you'll understand my not so developed swedish-english, and if you need the extra.txt, please advice me on how to get it. Just getting the main.txt when dss finishes.

Hello all,

This is my last resort to figure out why Bert (my computer) is dieing on me.

He is a 1 year old computer with Windows Vista 64 bit (Instal, not upgrade) Service pack 1, with 4 gb of Ram, a 500gb hard drive, and a 3.0GHz quad-core processor.

Lately, ive had troubles with him though,

It doesn't always start up correctly, and freezes on the Microsoft loading page, with the green loading bar.

When i try to start it in safe mode.. you'll all reconize this next part: It gets stuck on Crcdisk.sys (Yes, that infamous problem)

Ive googled the subject till i was blue in the face, and ive managed to get it to start up again (only 50% of the time) by doing the following:

I try to start up the computer, it freezes on the loading page
I hold the power button for 4 seconds to turn it off
Turn off the power bar
Press Bert's power button to drain any residual power
Turn on the power bar
Turn on Bert, and it starts properly.

So problem 1 is, id like to figure out how to fix the crcdisk.sys problem permanently, and the second problem is arguably worse:

When i do manage to turn it on, the computer is extremely unresponsive. It will freeze doing ANYTHING (Opening folders/files, Opening/closing windows, Opening/closing Firefox, or Internet Explorer, Loading anything in firefox or internet explorer... Basically anything that a computer can do, will freeze it.)

It will freeze, and the window will "Not responding", and sometimes if i wait a good 30 seconds -... Read more

This happens after a few hours of playing Battlefield Bad company 2, or within 10-20mins of playing World of Warcraft.

I tried swapping out my Radeon HD 5770 with an older nVidia 6600GT and ran the computer with the same settings and was able to play World of Warcraft without it crashing. I assumed this meant that the video card was faulty, so I RMA-ed it to XFX, and they tested it and found some other fault with the card and sent me a new one. But the problems persist, so I am afraid there are other problems. I have tried every fix I know of and all that I can think of now is to seek your help with figuring out my minidumps.

Hello,

A while ago, I found a problem with my PSU and it resolved the auto restart problem:

Now it starts again, but It has nothing to do with the PSU. It also freezes sometimes.

It should give me a blue screen, because that's how the system is configured, but it doesn't.

I think there are corrupted files. Now when I want to check for corrupted files with Start-->run--> sfc /scannow then I get:

Windows File Protection could not be initiate a scan of protected system files. The specific code is 0x000006ba [The RPC Server is unavailable.]

I have tried this fix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/296241

No luck at all, please help, I'm thinking of throwing this computer out of the window

Hello,

I bought a HP P6510f PC about 1.5 years ago. In the past month the computer started having problems. The first sign of problems was powering on and the computer would not boot up but instead go to a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner of screen. I ran a diagnostic through the internal software, I believe it's called PC Doctor and all componenets checked out fine - RAM, CPU, Hard Drive, etc. I then decided to reinstall windows 7. After installing the computer started to work like new again, except the next day it restarted itself and went to a black screen. It's done this a few times now. Sometime it boots up fine, other times it gets stuck and won't boot, just a black screen or the HP screen welcome screen with option for setup f10 (though won't respond).

Any ideas what might be going on? Are there ways I can check for internal malfunctioning hardware?

Hello all.. well, some time during august I was forced to format my computer due to a virus corrupting the file system. soon after that my computer began to freeze/restart itself, and I didn't understand why.

so.. yesterday, I re-formatted & the computer was fine for a few hours. then, the computer started to freeze/restart itself AGAIN.
As I was re-formatting yesterday, I noticed that whenever the system loaded windows it would start to crash, even when I put the windows sp1 disk into the CD drive to install it.

When I used a bootdisk to get to DOS & *never* restarted.
But why did it start freezing/restarting again? I don't understand. Makes no sense.

Every time the computer restarts/freezes it also runs chkdsk before starting up. It always fixes random things.. like MSN, Diablo, System32, etc. & I also don't understand that.

AND.. I did a system restore to yesterday, and uninstalled Diablo II to see if that was causing the problem, because it started when I loaded the game, logged in, and went to join a game.

So yeah, just some random information to lead to the cause
thanks a MILLION times!

I finally got my new computer working but for some reason after I leave it on for about 10 minutes it will restart by itself or freeze.

I think this might be a heat problem, but the temperature of the CPU never exceeds 50 degrees celcius. The mobo ttemperature is around 35 degrees celcius. I have a fan in the back blowing air out and one in the front taking air in.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

Specs are:
Athlon XP 2400
512 MB PC2700 ram
Asus A7V8X-X Mobo
350 Watt Antec PSU
Sapphire Radeon 9600
WD 400EB HD

HELP: Computer Restarts ALONE: FREEZES *HELP*

Hi,

Well, I have a computer that has been giving me some small problems... The PC works fine but only while I am using it. If I leave it on by itself for about 15 minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less... it freezes and I have to click the reset button to restart! I don't know why it's doing this.

Another problem is, sometimes I can be doing anything on the PC and the screen turns black and restarts on its own for no reason.. well, there's is one but that's why Im posting this.. I believe the problem has to be related to the freezing but I don't know what! .. Can it be the HDD, OS, or is it Power Failure? Please help!

Thanks in advance,

I think you are overclocking your hardware. If your not, your hardware may be defective. 9c means hardware failure, such as processor, RAM, or hard drive(although i dont think its possible to overclock a harddrive, im just pointing out that it is critical hardware) Try turning overclocking off, even if you never enabled that, some viruses/bugs and other nasties can change those settings(mine does that all the time)

Over the past week my computer has been freezing and restarting without warning. This does not seem to be a BSOD, as I've had trouble with one before and that used to stay on the screen until I restarted: this automatically restarts.

First I thought it was random, but all of 4 times have been whilst playing various games on Steam. Each time also seemed to be in response to an action within the game: I click on something in the menu - freeze and restart; I get killed in-game - freeze and restart.

My computer is powerful enough to run all the games I have on full graphics setting and I have never had any trouble like this before; it is recent and has only started within the last week or so.

What on earth is going on?

Hello!

Got a tip from a friend that this is the place that will solve all my problems!

I bought a new computer in parts for my brother (see spec below) and we instantly had a quite irritating problem. The computer could all of a sudden freeze completely or reboot without a warning or bsod. It could happend both when playing games or just chillin' on the web with one tab open. It could happend anything from twice a day to once every three days.

We have tried overheating the CPU and GPU and that doesn't seem to be the problem. We have updated the chipset, graphics driver and SSD hard drive to its newest drivers. We have also checked device manager for missing drivers.

Each and every time we get the following error when checking logs:

Just recently my computer (WIN2K, Duron 700) has started randomly locking up. It had been working just fine for months and I haven't added any new software or changed any settings. I can be in the middle of something or just leave it for a bit and come back and it siezes. Control>Alt>Delete does nothing. What's worse, after I kill the power, sometimes it won't even come back to life the first power up. If I can get to the point where it boots in safe mode, then doing a normal shutoff usually gets a good restart (until it locks again). There are no error messages, and the reboots take much longer than normal. Plenty of RAM and disk space. I thought it might be the video card (it is maybe 6 mos old), but I watched a DVD of Queen at Wembly (great concert) all the way through and had zero problems! Any good thoughts?

I got a new HD and windows7 home premium 64bit, when my computer starts up i get to the desktop, where the dialog box should come up where i pick my languange and begin install. This never appears and eventually my computer restarts and repeats until it freezes after the second or third restart. Anyone know how to solve this problem?

Update: I loaded fail safe defauls and now i can begin the install process but im still having the same problem with restarting and freezing seemingly randomly. I ran a memory diagnostic and did not find any problems.

A:Computer Restarts and freezes before install

Please fill out your System Specs in bottom left of post.

Try wiping the HD first before trying install to Active partition you create: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Next remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install. Then Swap RAM sticks. Test RAM using Memtest86 for 5-6 passes.

Unplug all peripherals and other HD's. Use PS2 keyboard and mouse.

I'm not sure what's going on with my computer currently, but it keeps freezing or restarting on its own. It typically happens when I'm not actually using it - most of the time it happens over night or during the day while I'm at work.

Generally, it just freezes with the hard drive activity light lit solid on my case. Just turning the power off and restarting doesn't do the trick - I usually have to unplug the power cable from my computer, then open up the case and unplug my hard drive before I can restart it successfully. If I don't do that and just attempt a reboot, I get an error along the lines of "Please select proper boot media or device."

Sometimes it does just restart on its own, which is just equally annoying.

Today I came home to a BSOD, a Physical Memory Dump error.

I've run disk check on my hard drive and it comes back fine. The hard drive is also new - I purchased it because I thought the crashes were caused by my old (assumed to be failing) hard drive.

I have an external hard drive as well, which is connected through a PCI-E slot on my motherboard. I thought this might be the issue, so I disconnected it. The problems still occur.

We do need the 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:





Quote:
* 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:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello, i've been having a re-occuring problem with my pc. This error has only occured during gaming. Visual indication would be the screen freezing on a specific frame. Sound would indiciate a reptition/loop of the last half second of noise produced by the game. And for my pc case, i have a led that connects to the HDD that blinks to show HDD activity. When the freezing first starts, it would blink in a constant cycle, then a few moments later, the light would turn off, My screen would still be frozen, and the sound would not loop anymore, but only play the last sound genereated by the game. On another occasion, I decided not to manually push the restart button to get the pc going again, and I decided to wait and see what happens. The HDD LED light flashed and the sound came up for a split second then restarted.

Things I've done to try to troubleshoot;
1. Chckdsk (Using regular chkdsk in run will check to about 2nd or 3rd step, then it says errors found cannot run in read only mode.
2. chkdsk /f
3. Ran SEAGATE diag tools. Tests run: SMART check, Short drive self test, short generic test. Long self drive test. All tests came back as PASSED
4. Right click My Pc -> Manage -> Disk Management -> Right-Click C drive -> Properties -> Error Checking -> Check Now. The test would not start till i rebooted (and i did so) I waited for the 5 step test to finish, and my regular boot up screen proceeded and i logged in.

I am running Windows XP on a built computer. Since day one I have had problems with the computer freezing or restarting. Being that it is a built computer, I am starting to think not all the components were new. I have had this computer for 3 years, and I really want to fix this. I found this forum, and I like what I have read from you guys.

Every time it freezes the error report says device driver(mainly the graphics card) or anti-virus error. I have ran a few different anti-virus programs like Norton, AVG and Kaspersky. I would like to know if it is hardware, software or a virus/trojan that my programs can't read or clean.

Howdy, I werent sure where to put it so i try here.
So about two weeks ago I finally got my new computer built up.
But a new computer rarely comes without its problem. After some playing my computer tends to either freeze, get a blue screen with lots of numbers and restart, turn black and automatically restart or show lots of weird colors on the screen and freeze.
Yeah I know, it may seem a lot. But I suspect this may be from the same problem.
Reasons I believe so is because all this happens after I've played for some time.
It may be an hour, or two hours.
I'm a bit confused, since I've managed to play a four hours Supreme Commander (Which is a pretty high demanding game) match without anything happened.
While playing games like WoW, Crysis or Rainbow six vegas, my PC freezes after minimum 2 hours. Even with Supreme Commander it has stopped sometimes. So I get the feeling this is pretty random.
First I suspected this may be because my Radeon 4870 x2 2 gig had a CPU temperature of 85 c without me even playing. So I got fan program and configured my graphic card fan speed from 25% to 55%. That resulted in a temperature drop from 85 c to 40 c.(This is also without any form for overclocking)
This actually did improve my playtime without my computer crashing a little. But still, after some playing my computer crashes.
So I don't suspect overheating being the issue alone. Actually, I'm so frustrated right now, I have no idea

What I have noticed thou... Read more

A:Computer freezes/restarts when gaming

Why do you not suspect overheating? You have posted your video card temps however you have not posted your cpu temps. A very simple test for overheating is to open the case and place a small desk type fan blowing air into the case. If the problem stops, you have found the cause.

Next issue that corsair memory needs a higher vdimm [ram voltage] than stock. Have you set the correct ram voltage in the bios.

Hi, I have an issue with my computer.
I run Win7 and lately I've had the problem that my computer freezes on startup - in fact, just as the first pixel of the Windows logo lights up on the screen it just won't go any further. The screen keeps saying "Windows is starting" but I can leave it like that for hours and nothing will happen.

Then I tend to press the start button and leave it for a few hours at which point it'll start as normal (complaining of course that Windows wasn't shut down correctly and if I want to try a repair or start as normal. I've tried both options and neither makes a difference - It'll start as normal.)

It also starts normally if I don't do a restart.
So the problem always happens if the computer was on, then turned off and then turned on again within a shorter period of time.

Another - and possibly related problem, is that when I work with my folders and move stuff around in them, I oftenmanage to overwork them so they will not show the files properly anymore or open them.

Solutions tried:
Reset to a previous point where I knew it worked
Insert the Win7 CD and asked it to repair
Asked for it to repair any possible problems after turning off windows incorrectly and getting the option during startup

Neither of these have worked

Now this machine was bought mid-late 2011 and was repaired maybe 3 times.

We got the machin back from our uncle last week (friday) because the hard drive was replaced with a 1TB Seagate one and it was working fine up until yesterday. I was watching youtube vids when it suddenly hung up. It was a normal occurence after getting it back from him but this one took way too long. Maybe lasted a minute or so so I decided to press the restart button. That's when it started to get more hangs. It would work ok when typing/watching after the initial boot up but would hang up when loading more than maybe 2 applications. It was also noticably slower when opening programs. I did the hardware check (right click and check for repairs from properties) and after that things started to smooth out. Installed Dragon Age Origins and got some hangs as well then it restarted on its own again!

The boot up takes nearly forever and when it reaches the home screen it takes a while to stabilize as well.

Where could the problem lie? After consulting reddit they said it's probably a malfunctioning hard drive again...
