Computer freezes (occurs after booting up computer & leaving it for 1-5 minutes)

Question: Computer freezes (occurs after booting up computer & leaving it for 1-5 minutes)

My Specs:CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($185.51 @ TigerDirect)Motherboard: MSI B75MA-P45 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($169.99 @ Amazon)Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($87.55 @ Amazon)Storage: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($131.45 @ SuperBiiz)Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($52.92 @ Amazon)Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video CardCase: NZXT Source 210 Elite (White) ATX Mid Tower Case ($47.98 @ OutletPC)Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US)Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($26.97 @ Newegg)Total: $752.36Also have a master cooler 212 evo. Had this computer for about 1 year (starting from July 2013) and had a problem where when I am playing games my computer would stutter (minor freezes like half a second), I also want to note that this problem occurred at the start of using this computer. Eventually, my computer would stutter so much, I had to restart my computer. After I bought an after market cooler (Master Cooler 212 Evo.) for my cpu, the problem minimizes to certain games (I can play games like League of Legends normally but not games like Counter Strike Global Offense or Battlefield 4, which are games that need a good computer which my computer can handle). So I was curious to see if it was the dust that was causing the problem, so I used compressed air to blow the dust away and now my computer starts to stutter after booting up! I had used compressed air before on my computer to clean dust away and this would not happen. I desperately need help now! Typing this in safe mode. Things I tried:-To further note about the stuttering problem, I sometimes get this problem which can be seen in this screenshot, http://imgur.com/3ybSeM3- Uninstalled my gfx card by going into safe mode then used a software to uninstall it. Rebooted normally and downloaded and installed 337.88 driver for my gfx but still not worked. (was 332.21 before). -I also sent my gfx card back to EVGA for a new one in November 2013 but I still had the suttering problemI was thinking if this could be a graphic card problem?

Preferred Solution: Computer freezes (occurs after booting up computer & leaving it for 1-5 minutes)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Computer freezes (occurs after booting up computer & leaving it for 1-5 minutes)

Sound to me like your video card is overheating. You mentioned the possibility of dust being a problem. Does that mean you have significant dust buildup? If you use compressed air in a dusty environment without using a vacuum at the same time to suck up the dust you just move it around a bit, which can cause more problems.-Mal

Hello! I am running Windows Vista on a Dell Inspiron 1545. For the past few days, my computer has frozen up a few minutes after booting. By this, I mean that all programs stop responding, I can't do anything but move the cursor, and I am forced to do a hard shut down. I have tried doing multiple system restores from different restore points, but this has not helped. Once, I was browsing the Internet and out of nowhere I got a blue screen with something about a memory dump (I wasn't able to read it in time!) which then restarted my computer. I also ran a malwarebytes full scan and it detected several malicious items, which I was able to remove. My computer works fine in safe mode. I am out of ideas and would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks!

Edit: just tried yet another system restore, which couldn't be completed because of a disc failure?

I recently built a new rig (only saved the hard drive and the cd/dvd drive). I spent hours and hours and HOURS trying to install windows vista and it kept freezing in the same or around the same areas. The mouse would freeze, the keyboard and everything else would stop responding, and the computer would shut itself off after about 5 minutes of it just sitting there locked up.

After a few days of troubleshooting i discovered it was my ram. I left one stick in and installed windows, and had high hopes that the problem would be solved after I installed mobo drivers, but nope. The problem persisted, freezing at the windows loading screen after I placed the second stick back in. When I place the two sticks in single channel, they work. But just like the windows installation, the computer will freeze anywhere from the loading screen of windows to the first minute of the desktop and will turn off after a few minutes.

my specs:
2GB Corsair PC2 6400 (DDR2)
Abit FP-IN9 SLI by Fatal1ty (Nforce 650i)
Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit)
Intel Core Duo E6750
EVGA 8800GTS Superclock
120GB HD
Five Case Fans
600w Power Supply
I've spent hours looking on different forums, messing around with bios settings, adjusting voltages, etc. My friend's computer who has 2gb of the same ram let me put his ram in his computer to test it out and it worked flawlessly. I think i'm going to try a different brand of ram tomorrow, but i'm afraid that it won't make a difference =\

My computer began freezing when I close the internet. Mouse moves but when I click on icon nothing happens. I can use ctrl,alt,del to bring up logon/off window. When I log off and back on I can regain use of all programs.I am running Windows 7,and using IE9,with 6 gig ram. I t seems to have slowly began when I uninstalled Firefox about 2 weeks ago. It was too unstable. This issue was happening just a few times but has now progressed to each time I leave the internet. Any help will be appreciated.
 

Answer:Computer freezes after leaving internet.

How are you "leaving the Internet"? If you have a broadband Internet connection, you're always connected.

I've also requested this be moved since you're running Windows 7 and not a version of Windows prior to XP.

hi all,
I have weird problem with my computer with all programs (both desktop and web) that anyhow (for any its feature) needs microphone. For example online webchats (so called java chat rooms), messengers, google voice (inside gmail.com), etc. So just about anything that would anyhow need microphone in order to work. My sound card works perfectly. Never any problems but I tried to update drivers anyway and no luck. As soon as I open the program that needs microphone, the whole computer permanently freezes. CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't help. I can only press button and hold it pressed for forcing shutdown on pc box. OS is windows xp. I tried several virus/malware cleaning tools, even posted computer logs on forum where are registered people as malware cleaning experts and no viruses or anything like that was found. Its true that I have only 512 ram but this shouldn't be the reason for freezing computer when starting program's feature that needs microphone. For example I can login into gmail.com account which has google voice just fine. I can use it fine but when I get incoming phone call, when it starts ringing, the whole computer completely freezes just because the feature (accepting phone call) MIGHT need microphone. I would appreciate if anyone could please help.

This problem has been persisting for a few weeks. I did a fresh re-install of windows 8 (genuine) and it is still happening so I thought I would ask for help. When I first turn my desktop on everyday within 5 minutes of starting up it freezes, no mouse or keyboard response (sometimes before I even have a chance to login). I have tried unplugging and plugging them back in to no avail. If there is anything animated (like a game) on my screen at the time of the freeze it will also be frozen. I have also tried waiting to see if it will unfreeze, even after 1 hour there is no change. Fans are still spinning and all lights (in tower and on headset/keyboard/mouse) are operational.So after the initial freeze I restart the computer and every single time within 5 minutes of starting up again the mouse will freeze. But only the mouse (keyboard and programs on screen are still operational). This is easily fixed by unplugging it and plugging it back in. Then the computer is good to go for the rest of the day. At first I thought it was a problem with my mouse (Steel Series Sensei Raw) so I swapped it out (Logitech G600) and uninstall the Steel Series software with Revo uninstaller, but even after that the problem persists, and that was before I did a fresh re-install of Win8. Enabled Startup programs:  Avast AntivirusNvidia BackendNvdidia Capture Server ProxyRealtek HD Audio ManagerusbmonitorI have attached my Dxdiag file as well. Thank you in advance 

Answer:Computer freezes within 5 minutes on startup, mouse freezes on restart

Did you remember to re-install ALL proper Win8 drivers after the clean install ? ?Neither of those NVidia apps need to be in the stsrtup group BTW though thats likely not the issue...

Answer:Computer freezes after a few minutes

 One thing that often causes this kind of thing is excess temperatures.  This varies somewhat from one processor to another, so find out what you have and check cputemp.com to see what it says about yours.  Then download & install something to measure and display your temperatures.  I use Speedfan, but there are others as well.  I would also run an administrative command window and run this command: sfc /scannow.  That will find and attempt to correct any corrupt system files.
`
 Good luck.

Hi

My PC has started to freeze a couple of minutes after start-up.

I've gone through the Read & Run Me first instructions, but can't run any of the Diagnostic tools as the PC has frozen by the time I go to run them.

The computer works ok in Safe Mode.

What should I do next?

The OS is Vista Home Premium
 

Answer:Computer freezes after a few minutes

Run the requested scans in safe mode and attach them to your next post when you are done. This may not be a malware issue, but we will look to make sure.

My PC has started to behave weirdly since three days ago and I have no idea what has happened.

Here is how my pc behaves:
-On every boot (the first time i start it in the morning), it can boot successfully, but after several minutes, it freezes--nothing that i can do to the pc-- i've tried restarting it, but still the same behaviour applies. When i tried to look what was in process from the Task Manager, i couldn't do that. I pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL to get the windows security window, but the Task Manager tab is not able to be clicked.

But then I tried booting in The Last Known Configuration That Worked, everything was allright, no problem at all. Then the next day if i boot normally, that weird behaviour persists. So start from now i always boot in The Last Know Configuration. However, in this booting, I can't use the Task Manager as well.


Could somebody tell me what to do? any suggestion/troubleshooting is very much welcomed and appreciated (as I have no idea of what i have done to my pc).


P.S. : I also attach the hijakcthis logfile, in case it's needed.


Regards,
Jo.

Hi everyone

Since yesterday my computer freezes only after some minutes of booting. Never had an issue of this kind before, my PC was always performing well without any problems at all.


Today i formated the computer hoping to solve it, but the problem remains.

The computer is freezing when i?m watching videos with VLC and i can?t even restart it with ctrl + alt + del because it doesn?t respond, so i must restart it manualy pressing the reset button.

Some weeks ago i bought a new PSU (coolermaster silent Pro M 500w) but i think it?s not related to that because untill yesterday all was fine.

This is what i get:

Can anyone help......my hp laptop freezes after being on for 10 minutes or so. I have had issues in the past (first one when installing an update 8 months ago). I had to do a system restore. I realized after looking for another antivirus program that sp1 and sp2 were not installed. My computer lost power during the updates and now I can't download them because my computer freezes while downloading. CTRL alt delete gets me nowhere, so have have to shut the computer off. Any ideas? My battery doesn't hold charge for very long, so I use the adapter all of the time.

Answer:Computer freezes after 10 minutes

Go to www.filehippo.com . Download cleaner (freeutility). Install & run per menus.

1. Run analyze .. Will take a minute or 2.
2. When analyze finishes, click on cleaner.
3. When 100%complete..click on run cleaner Button in lower right corner. Rerun cleaner (button) until you see a green bar and 100% across top of screen.
4. Next, click on registry button.. Left side of screen. After scan is complete ( min or 2) click on fix issues... When asked.. Click on backup to backup registry before starting fix... This let's you restore in case of a problem ..
5. Click on fix all problems..
6. May not be necessary, but repeat step 4 and 5 until you get 100% green bar at top of screen.

The above will clean up all those old files & registry errors left over from uncommitted install

7. Reboot
8. Run cleaner again and repeat above
9. Optional... Click on tools left side of screen, startup, check all those programs that are set to run when you reboot..go careful her.. I suggest if you do not recognize an entry, google it to see what it is. If not needed, click on enable yes to change to no..this action will stop a lot of unused useless stuff or stuff that need not run at startup..
10. Reboot

This should clean up most if not all of your problem... If not, you may have a virus or malware and need to clean that up..

I recommend using malwarebytes ( another free utility)... Install and let it run... Follow their instructions

From there if you still have... Read more

My computer freezes every five minutes or so while playing games or running firefox. It's been doing this for the last 6 months and most of the time it freezes for a few minutes then runs fine for a while. Then it freezes again. Eventually I have to hard reboot. Any ideas?

Answer:Computer freezes every five minutes or so

Im on my phone so i cant look at your attachment but it sounds like graphic card issues to me.. Have you changed any hardware around the time that this issue started? Or have you updated the drivers recently? I would highly suggest doing a clean install of the graphic card drivers. If i was on my computer i would provide a link because i know there is a tutorial on the forums here somewhere to do it 'properly'

Using Sony VAIO 
My computer locks up after 45 minutes doing any and everything.
 
Chrome Browser mostly used to watch youtube, netflix, amazon prime and nfl.com 
vosteran appeared and since trying to remove it, is when I think the freezing started.
i can still minimize browser when freezing starts, just get no response after clicking on links
have to hold down power button to reboot.
I try to use Microsoft Security Essentials but it also locks up around 40-45 minutes and I can never make it thru the full scan.
 
After reboot everything good for 45 minutes
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hello,
i have this problem since a week or so that my computer completely freezes a few minutes after start up.

it doesnt happen in save mode ,so im in safe mode right now..
sometimes just one day nothing happens and the next day its freezing again.
Kaspersky Internet security 2012 and Malwarebytes didnt find any virus.

Someone adviced to do a scan with Combofix , wich i did, but after the automatic reboot, Combofix did not had the time to make a log because of the freezing..
at the end of the scan i have seen very quickly that the program did delete some maps, but had not the time to see wich ones..
on the first sight the three maps didnt look very important, so i hope it was nothing bad :/
anyway, after combofix the freezing shifted from 15-20min to a few minutes after start up.

i try defragmenting and disk checking (in safe mode, i dont know if that makes a difference) but i got this message "was unable to complete disk checking"

so, i dont know what to do next...

all help is very welcome and appreciated!

Every time I start my new computer up, it will freeze after a few minutes.  Sometimes it takes longer than others.  It took a bunch of tries until I got lucky enough for the Windows XP installation to finish.  But having Windows set up does no good if it'll freeze after a few minutes anyway.  Does anybody know what can cause this and how I can get it fixed?The computer was bought off eBay.  I've been emailing them, but they haven't responded with a solution.

Hi guys,
I'm having a problem with my Dell Inspiron. To explain the background - I have had a long term issue with the battery not charging and the power socket being rubbish so that the lead falls out. Yesterday, the lead fell out 5 seconds or so into booting up. My problem is that since that event, after around 3-5 minutes whenever I turn the computer on, everything freezes, except the mouse. I can't click on anything or do CTRL ALT DEL. When loading Google Chrome the freeze instantly occured, otherwise it takes a couple of minutes to occur. After it occurs, 75% of the time the PC runs chkdsk on reboot.

Initially I could load the computer in safe mode and there would be no issue at all, but after a while, safe mode did not start at all. Instead it freezed on boot up right after loading the avgidseh.sys driver - i have now fixed this as it was a common problem back in 2010 where AVG caused the computer to crash - however for me it was only on safe mode and i fixed by removing AVG.

So now I'm back to the original issue of the computer crashing after a few minutes when not in safe mode. Note to try and fix, I have ran a registry fix, used anti malware bytes, and
attempted a system restore. The system restore always failed in normal / safe mode, crashing at initialisation step. In repair mode, it finished but then said it had failed, and deleted all my restore points! At http://panaceadream.com/1538-40-log.txt is a copy of the event System log during 1 crash, ... Read more

Recently upgraded my board,processor and memory to an IWill board RA266 with AMD 1.13 MHz and 256 DDR memory. Used my same Vodoo4 video, Soundblaster 32 card and modem. My harddrive, a westerndigital 18 Gb already contained programs from previous time and OS is Win98. After a couple of days or so, I noticed a message that says 'not enough memory to save' or something like that. And shortly thereafter my computer would just freeze while in windows, and now it wont even boot even after resetting CMOS. Can you tell me how to diagnose if my new memory, DDR or CPU or even the board is defective? I don't have another computer to check out these components! Thanks for any help that can be offered.

If this started recently you may want to try restoring a recovery point that was created back before you started having the problem.

If you've installed or upgraded any software recently, try uninstalling it.

Hello there everyone,

My PC has been freezing for a couple of days now after about 5 Power Cuts occured, though I do have a basic surge protector. It keeps freezing every four minutes or so. For example when I'm playing ArmA II the game freezes, but I can still hear people's voices over ventrilo and I can use the push to talk fine. When I'm watching a video using Windows Media player, the video and the audio just completely freeze then the audio cuts in and out, followed by the video playing normally again for a couple of minutes. Another example is when I'm browsing;the browser just outputs "Not responding" and when I try to open task manager it stalls until the issue passes then the manager pops up.

Computer Specs:
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
RAM: Kingston PC3 10600 CL9 240 PIN DIMM - 2 Sticks, one 4GB and one 2GB-Total: 6 GB.
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3
BIOS: Touch BIOS Award Modular v6.00PG
Video card: nVidia GTX 560 Ti ( Gigabyte version )
PSU: 500W HEC 500 TE 2WX
OS:Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 Bit

I've ran chkdsk twice, no bad sectors or so. I switched out RAM slots, and removed the 2GB stick completely but the issue still persisted, I didn't want to remove the 4GB stick and try the 2GB one because I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate. The freezing also happens when I'm browsing, PC just freezes momentarily for a period of about 40 seconds and then runs perfectly fine for 4-5 minutes.

Hey guys,
tl;dr - computer is freezing, running in safe mode, can't detect malware, Hijackthis log at bottom.

So I'm in vacation in Florida and decided to bring my laptop. The house I rented has cable internet and a wireless router so it would work out pretty well, right? I don't think so. After connecting for the first time, my computer now decides to crash after about five minutes. It doesn't matter if I'm connected or not, but it always crashes unless I am in safe mode. It even crashed after performing a clean boot (as recommended by Microsoft).

All I can imagine is that within the two seconds of being connected to this new internet, I got some sort of malware. I have AVG Pro always running, but that didn't detect anything. I also tried MalwareBytes with no luck. Also, Security Task Manager didn't detect any threatening processes. So this is very frustrating, and I have the HijackThis log right here. Thanks for any help in advance.

Oh, and one more weird point of interest, out of the many times I had to force shutdown and restart my laptop, one of those times resulted in, upon loading up, me receiving a message that my Windows was not genuine (which it is). After a few seconds, it authorized as genuine, but it's never done such a thing before.

So basically my computer just won't stop freezing up.
It happens especially when (and after) I've watched a video file, and sometimes (I think, not sure) otherwise, such as when I play games.
The problem seems to stay until I've restarted the computer.
I've had this problem for a long time now and it just won't go away.

When the computer freezes up it really freezes up at the point where it was, even to the extent where the current sound being played freezes as well and you can basically just hear a prolonged tone (assuming I was listening to music) for the full duration of the freeze.

I've done something to solve it for maybe a few days two times, and that would be to reset bios through that battery thing in the computer and cleaned the computer from dust.
So this helps for a few days but then it's back just as before.

I need to solve this issue and know if it is software or hardware related.
Any tips would be appreciated.

Answer:My computer freezes up for 1 second every 5 minutes or so.

Freezing is usually caused by overheating or a failing Power Supply Unit (PSU) If you have cleaned out the computer of dust, while the side is off, look to the PSU label and report the make, model # and Wattage. Boot into Setup (Bios) and look for PC Health or some such and report the Temperatures. Also look to the PSU setting and report the 12V line.
You can also download Speccy, this will give you lots of info about your computer including the temperatures of the motherboard and HDD. Once Speccy has scanned your computer go to File/Publish Snapshot and copy the URL and Paste it into your next post if you would like to share it with us.
If your Motherboard (CPU) runs at 70 degrees C or higher, you may need to reapply Thermal Gel between the Processor and the Heat Sync.

Hi,

No matter how many times i restart my computer the same thing happens. I don't have this problem though when i'm in safe mode. but when i'm in safe mode, i don't have access to my virus detection software, so i can't scan for a virus either in normal or safe mode.

Answer:Computer freezes after two minutes

Hi piano-man,

My name is Ravi and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.

In this case I would suggest you to create a new user account by booting in to safe mode and give that account admin rights. Once the account is created boot the system in to normal mode and choose new user account to log in. Observe the system in that account and also run the Virus scan in that account and check.

Steps to create a new account:

Boot the system in safe mode Click start and in the search tab type User account and open it.
Choose Manage another accounts and click on Create a new account.

Please reply with the Outcome.
Thanks & Regards

Hi! My problem is every few minutes or so, my system "stalls" for a few seconds then starts up right where I left off. It gets irritating after the third or fourth time. I've tried uninstalling programs I no longer use, resetting my start-up to only run the most necessary programs, updating drivers, and system restore. Nothing seems to be helping. Even right now - I'm am becoming angrier and angrier at my laptops freezing frequency!! Please post anything that may keep me from throwing my computer into the wall!!

Thanks

Hello TSF,

As of recent I've been receiving a frequent number of blue screen errors. Only recently have they become serious, rendering my computer almost impossible to run through the means of the normal mode.

For a few days it has more or less cropped up within hours. As it stands now, the errors are appearing within the space of 5-10 minutes after I boot up the system. Anywhere beyond the login screen is fair-game for the BSOD to suddenly appear and force my computer into restarting after a memory dump.

I had hoped this was a result of my graphics card drivers being outdated, but I have recently updated them to the latest version, among other drivers such as my CPU, Chipset, Audio and Ethernet drivers.

I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with any hardware issues, as certain software on my computer reports that my computer's temperature readings are well below any critical level (CPU level seems to get to ~35 degrees at maximum, while the system temp. reaches around 20 degrees at most).

In the interest of finding a solution to these problems, here are the details of my computer in specifics:

- It had been produced by an independent manufacturer on a 'custom-built' order.

- The operating system is currently Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (64-bit).

- There was no original OS installed on the computer when I got it; I had used an old OEM installation of Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit on it initially upon receiving it.

So recently something started going wrong with my computer. I have Windows 7 on a computer with integrated graphics and randomly my graphics weren't fully working. Like somehow as if the graphics driver stopped working, my resolution (1360x786) went back to 800x640, and I wasn't able to change it back since the settings were no longer there and nvidia control panel would not work. It said there was no GPU or something? I didn't know why this was, and I decided to repeatedly reinstall my nvidia drivers to see if that was the problem. I did multiple times, making sure they were properly installed but I could not point my GPU to the drivers. Nothing I tried worked so after some tinkering, my computer would repeatedly go to Chkdsk every time it booted. It would never complete only restart to do the same thing. So I would cancel it to get to the Windows start screen. For I while I could do this and it would go back to the low-resolution desktop. After so many restarts, it would begin booting and then going into the System Repair thing, which would also never complete. It would either get to the end of the repairs and restart, do the same thing after starting back up, or it would freeze at the end and I would have to manually shut it down and restart it again only to go back to doing the same thing. I couldn't get into safe mode either without it bringing me to the System Repair page. So, realizing I was stuck in this situation after trying everything I know how... Read more

Hi,

Last few days my computer has been extremely slow on startup. On startup it gets to desktop fine and everything runs at normal speed for about a minute and then as if a programme turns on taking up huge memory (on task manager processes tab it shows nothing) everything runs super slow for about 10 minutes and then it goes back to normal speed again. I've run AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot S & D and SuperAntiSpyware to try and get rid of the potential virus but it is still here.

any help is appreciated!

Hey everyone.

My computer starting freezing on me yesterday. I can log on with no problems, and everything works fine for about 15 minutes then everything just locks up. The cursor still moves but I can't do anything with it. No success with the keyboard either. Anything I have running stops as well and I'm forced to manually restart.

I have checked my event log and there are no errors, warnings or even information logged for applications or system at the time it freezes. There were 3 system errors that show up on startup and have been recurring for as far back as my event log shows (the beginning of this month). I will include them with this post. I believe event error 3 is from an old Linksys wireless router and/or Linksys network card that I used to have installed, but I uninstalled all those files, so I'm not sure if I missed something. I have also been getting the BSOD randomly for about a month now. I will include my last minidump too.

My last virus scan was two days ago. I have Norton 2008, and it came back clean. I haven't been able to run it since the freezing started since my computer won't stay operational long enough for me to do so.

I have run a check disk at startup, I have also uninstalled some of the more recent programs that I have installed on my computer.

Aside from that, I don't know that I have added or updated anything lately. It's hard to remember. I know I am running SP3 for Windows. I'm not sur... Read more

For the last 4 months my computer has froze for about 5 minutes after using it for about 20. It's not a total freeze, I can still move my mouse and click items but they take about a minute to respond. If I let the computer sit for about 5 minutes it will back up to normal again. Last time I checked, during the freeze the CPU is work 100% and lsass.exe is taking up at least 90% of that if not all. Any help?

Well hello. Recently one of my computers started to have issues with freezing, literally overnight. The freezing occurs usually 2-30 minutes after I log in, but sometimes I can use the computer for up to an hour or more without freezing. The freezing is just everything stops, no black screen or anything, just the computer stops, frozen in place.

However, the computer does work when I boot it up in safe mode. So while in safe mode I did a virus scan and a spyware scan, but nothing showed up.

I then thought it may have been my processor overheating, which it wasn't. Then I replaced the processor and heatsink completely with an identical set, and the freezing occurred again.

Oh, and I am using Windows XP SP2 if that is important.

I am completely out of ideas, any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello all-

I have had this issue for several months. Everytime I boot or reboot my computer, startup occurs without any issues, but as soon as I attempt to do anything (open internet, open file folder, run program, etc), the PC freezes for several minutes before I am able to do anything. Once it goes through this "freeze cycle", I generally don't have any issues with the computer freezing thereafter, and am able to run whatever I want to do normally. This has caused me to leave my computer running for days before rebooting (I just leave the laptop closed when not in use). Any ideas on why this is occurring?

About 2-5 minutes after I login to the administrator account on my laptop, the computer becomes sluggish and extremely slow, and sometimes ends in a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR blue screen of death. All of the running programs, taskbar, and desktop will stop responding, but the mouse cursor remains fine. Before this point however, the laptop works fine as normal.

This problem does not occur in safe mode (I am typing this on safe mode right now). However, I have reinstalled Windows 7 completely several times, and this issue continues to persist.

Any suggestions? I have tried booting up in clean boot and the first option of chkdsk (the second option results in it hanging on a file in Step 4 of 5. I have left it running overnight for ~10 hours and it has not budged from there).

About 3 days ago, my computer began freezing every 15 minutes or so. The monitor would freeze, and the speakers would make a sharp popping noise. I'd then have to restart the computer. Occasionally, the computer would also randomly restart itself without warning. I system restored and ran antivirus, no help. Anyone know what to do here?

Specs:

MSI K8N Neo4 Nforce Mboard
AMD 64 3000+
80 gig SATA harddrive
1.5 gigs of memory (A stick of 1 gig and a stick of .5 gig)
Gigabyte Radeon x600 Graphics card

The last thing I did to the computer was add .5 gigs of memory, however the .5 stick came with the computer when I bought it, I had been using a 1 gig for about a year 'cause it wasn't detecting the memory when I installed it.

Answer:Computer freezes or crashes every few minutes.

Looks very likely that its the new memory you've installed. Take it out and see how your computer goes then. You can also do a memory check of the memory just google the manufacture name and see if there is software to use.

Okay, this problem is with my girlfriend's computer:

ECSP4VXASD2+
256MB SDRAM
Voodoo3 2000 AGP
CD/DVD-ROM
WD 180GB PATA

The motherboard is from my old computer and is probably about five or so years old. Anyway. The newest component that was added was the P4 processor. Before that, it was a 1.8GHz Celeron. This was added back in August and worked fine ever since. About a month ago, she would boot into Windows and then after a few hours she would get the BSOD. I finally took a loot at the problem and found that after this BSOD occurred, upon rebooting, the BIOS wouldn't recognize the main hard drive (she had two HDs at that point, an old 30gig of mine and an 18gig from her old computer. So for a while I would be able to enter the BIOS and have it autodetect the hard drive, then save, reboot, and it would load windows successfully. This only worked for a couple of days, however. I thought the hard drive might have finally crapped out, so we boutht a new WD (the 180gig) from newegg and installed that. I attempted to install WinXP on that hard drive, but the Windows install would freeze when it was around 40% done copying setup files (the step right after formatting). I tried swapping the 256mb stick of SDRAM with a 128mb stick that I knew was good and it still hapens. I'm pretty sure that it's not the Windows disk because when I formated the disk separately from the Windows install program (running the WIndos Recovery Console), it would complete the format ...

Hi, I'm having a problem that I've never experienced before and am having a rather difficult time solving on my own. So here's how it is: A few days ago, approximately around the 14th, I noticed that there were slightly longer delays between the windows logo and the log in screen when starting up. Like, 10 second delays when it's usually .5-1 second. I didn't really think anything of it, and proceeded to log in. I noticed that it seemed to take a longer time for everything to start up than usual, but not super long, maybe 8 minutes when it usually takes 3 minutes. I started to browse the internet and stuff, started to play a game with slightly longer delays and lag happening with pretty much everything. Then, after about 30 minutes, my game froze and I couldn't click on anything. I ctrl+alt+deleted out of it and tried to delete it from task manager but then task manager froze. After that everything else started freezing. So I shut down, and logged back in with the same slightly longer delays, noticing it as suspicious that time. I did the same thing, waiting for lag to happen, and this time after a much shorter period, maybe 5 minutes of being logged in, everything started freezing again. I noticed that obviously there was a serious problem going on, so I shut down and logged in in Safe Mode. I ran Malwarebytes and had it do a quick scan and it found some stuff but nothing that was already checked, meaning it wasn't particularly dangerous as... Read more

Hi all,

I have another thread going about a separate issue on a separate computer.

This is in regards to my older desktop which I pulled out due to the issue with my newer desktop.

It's a Pentium (R) 4 CPU 3.00 GHz with 3.00 GB RAM (even though there is 4 in the system).

I built this computer a few years ago with the help of a computer friend (who has since moved far far away). I didn't use it for very much. I did a little video editing, some photo editing, etc.. But mostly, we used it to watch movies and tv shows (video files).

Out of nowhere, after working great for years (and I updated the ram at some point to maximize ability) the computer would lock up frozen while watching a video. Pretty soon it would lock up no matter what I was doing after a few minutes.

Sad.

I did a complete re-install of windows xp pro. Service Pack 3. I ONLY installed VLC media player on the computer and Firefox. I don't have any files on the computer otherwise. I reloaded the drivers having used a program that saves all the drivers and re-installs them on there.

The sound, video, internet, etc all work.

But, the computer STILL freezes up. I uninstalled VLC and installed Media Player Classic - Home on it so I could watch a video and it still freezes.

Just a moment ago, I was trying to copy a few picture files onto the computer and it rebooted itself.

It's a clean install - I don't have a clue as to where to begin my troubleshooting.
Thank you in advance!

Last night my computer worked fine and nothing out of the ordinary happened - didn't download anything.Today after I got home and switched on my computer, it started slowing down (or freezing I should say) randomly for ~30 seconds, about every 2-3 minutes. Other than that, things are running okay (I'm typing this post on it, and waiting when it freezes). Did a full scan under Avast and Malwarebyte's Antimalware, nothing out of the ordinary. Did a disk check, no errors, and restarting the computer doesn't improve the condition.Here's the symptoms:- In task manager and process explorer I don' see anything odd either, even when frozen/locked up the computer is under 10% usage.- When my computer freezes in these intervals, the load/processing LED is solid blue (no blinking at all), so maybe something is trying to do something?- Just before every freeze-up, teatimer reacts and the icon becomes active (the lock picture moves around), but no pop-ups or anything...so something is processing, or trying to.Any help, or anyone know how I can see teatimer's active logs to maybe find these processes? . I don't see an option in teatimer to see anything, other than a log file of pop-ups such as registry changes.

Hi I have a fairly new computer (14 months) that never gave me any problems until recently. My computer will 100% freeze after roughly 10 mins of use (doesnt matter what i do in the 10 mins). I'm running windows 7 home 32 bit, i5 quad core (cant rmb alot of details, will dig up more soon), asus p8p67 mobo, wd 1tb green and 4gb ram.

The only way to "unfreeze" my computer is to restart it, if i leave it as it is without restarting I'll get a BSOD that says "KERNEL INPAGE DATA ERROR"

error code: STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0xA16DE4E0, 0xA16DE64C, 0xE3060200)

any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

I have a lot of problems with my computer, but the biggest one right now is that every time I reboot my computer, within a few minute of normal use it will freeze up. I can still move my mouse and click things but nothing will open.
I've googled it a lot and tried many things. Disabling the audio driver, changing my power settings, I've tried a few virus removers. The problem doesn't happen in Safe Mode, but now safe mode won't even work. Obviously I have no idea what I'm doing and it seems like I'm making things worse. Please help, thanks.

Answer:Computer Freezes 5 Minutes After Rebooting

Disabling the Audio and changing power settings will do nothing for this problem. So reverse what you have done.
When a computer freezes it is usually caused by overheating or by a failing Power Supply Unit. Shut down the computer, and take the side off, clean out all dust and blow out fans with a can of compressed air.
Look at the label for the PSU. Report the Make, Model# and Wattage.
You can also try a Clean Boot. If that works, add one startup item at a time until you find the culprit.

Hello,

My basic problem is that when I boot up my computer and log in, within 1-5 minutes, my computer will lock up. When I boot up in safe mode, it will freeze within 2-10 minutes.

I am not sure what is causing the problem and I would like some help. I am pretty sure something broke in my computer because it tipped over when I was driving back to college.. forgot to lay it on it's side :(

Either way. Here are my specs, and if you want me to elaborate, no problem, and lastly: Any help is much appreciated(help being a possible problem and how to test for it )

SPECS:

: Intel Core E8600 - 3.33GHz w/ 3.25 Gigs of RAM
: GeForce GTX260 Graphics Card
: 1000W Antex Power Supply
: Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6 Motherboard

Answer:Computer freezes minutes after bootup

Welcome
The first thing to do is unplug the power, take the service side panel off, destatic yourself by touching the unpainted metal in your case, and reseating the ram and cards. Check that the cpu fan didnt dislodge.

Did you put the voltage on the power supply to the correct 120V for the states?

Report what the bios states for the temps and voltages.

Hi guys,

It's my first time here, before I start id like to apologies for my english, im a naturel french speaker. I tried to find some help on french message boards but nobody could help!

For the past 2 weeks my computer has started freezing only a few minutes after opening, by few I mean 10-15 minutes. I say ''freezing'' but it's not a typical freeze. I don't get the blue screen, I can still move my mouse and navigate from the desktop to the windows but all the programs aren't responding, plus, I can't open neither close any programs... So basically, i can move the mouse, but that's it. I can't ''ctrl+alt+dlt'' either so I have to do a hard shutdown.

I am currently runnind the computer in safe mode and everything is ok. I couldn't do an anti-virus scan in normal mode cause I don't have enough time to perform it completely. And in safe mode, I get special version of AVG Anti-Virus, a line editor!? Im an average joe in computer so I don't really understand that part of the anti-virus...!? I also tried a restore, but the problem is still there.

I use the computer on a regular basis for normal things... I don't play any games, I only navigate on the internet, check my emails, facebook, iTunes (no P2P, only CDs I bought and/or downloaded on the AppStore), school works (OpenOffice)...

Hi, I would like to start off by my PC's specifications, I have a HP Mini 210-3002SA notebook, originally it had a 250GB Hard drive and a 1GB RAM, Windows 7 Started OS, my previous hard drive got corrupt and stopped working so I purchased a new 1TB hard drive in which the windows 7 starter was installed by a technician and I had upgraded the RAM to a 2GB . My PC was working fine until recently it kept coming up with an error for a missing Conduit BackgroundContainer.DLL file every time I started the PC, so I downloaded auto run from Microsoft website and had deleted the missing DLL file and checked the PC for viruses and there was one virus from Bettersurf and my antivirus software removed it. I started my PC again and it starts up fine but it freezes when I open any applications, SafeMode will not let me run the antivirus with or without networking and I have no idea what's happening. I uninstalled recently downloaded programs which were MS Visual Basic and Team Viewer before deleting the entire conduit file using auto run. So please please please help me... I appreciate your efforts and your help ...

PS. Since the new hard drive had only the window 7 OS installed, I had installed all the necessary software drivers that originally came installed in the PC from the HP Website using a USB for transferring the drivers from one PC to another until Wi-Fi was enabled.

I am hoping someone can help me out with this:

I had a bunch of old stuff (and some spyware I think) on my computer, so I decided to a complete format and reinstall XP. I went through the installation and then updated my device drivers from the CD's. Everything seemed fine...

Then I plugged in the ethernet cable. It was fine until it started downloading the windows updates. It hadn't actually got to the real updates, just the initial update software it has to install. I think it was on #2 of 3 when it froze. The mouse would still move, but I couldn't click anything or bring up the task manager with ctrl+alt+delete.

I was thinking it could be the hard drive, but then I imagine it wouldn't boot at all. Before the spyware got on the computer, everything was running fine, so I wouldn't think that any of the components just "went bad."

Any suggestions are much appreciated! Thanks!

*This is my first post so not sure if i'm including everything i need*

Hello. I have been having this issue with my laptop since around February of this year. After I had installed Windows 8.1, i noticed that i would randomly start getting the BSOD and it would tell me I had a Kernal Data error. (or something like that, i don't remember the exact error code) I tried looking up what to do to fix the issue but couldn't find anything. I did find a site that told me to run the SFC /scannow command and it gave me a detail list of the process. I noticed that it mentioned something about PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE and AMD64, which is weird because I have an Intel processor. Also said something about a hash mismatch. The detail list is included in the ZIP file i have on here.

I just ended up doing a system restore and things were working fine for a while. Then after I would log on to my PC, the programs and apps would freeze for about 3-5 minutes. The mouse was still movable but nothing else would open or operate for those minutes. After the freeze it would start working again but then it would freeze again shortly after. Over time it's gotten progressively worse and now i'm turning to the Internet to ask for help.

I ran another SFC /scannow today and it gave me a different (and longer) list of its details. It also mentioned that it found some corrupt files and couldn't fix them. At this point I am not sure what to do. Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me? Any help would ... Read more

Hello,
Ever since I got this computer its been freezing it had a virus and I reinstalled windows like 4 times on it because I found out my virus stored itself in a file in a usb drive I used for reinstalling windows. now, after a completely clean reinstall of windows. I've had no more issues aside from the fact that my computer screen freezes and I get this annoying distorted mixture of sounds for about 15 seconds until I press ctl alt del enough times and it goes to that menu. I've found that whenever I have a programs such as steam or world of tanks running with my browser it happens more often and especially if im watching youtube videos or I have too many tabs open. It's been bugging me and I cant make heads or tails of it, whether its still a virus or a graphics card issue. My event logs say that my display has quit working and other error message im sure you can see that from the logs. Thanks a lot for your help itll be much appreciated.

Computer freezes after playing games for a while

Whenever I play games my computer freezes almost exactly 30 minutes after playing them, I can't do anyting no control, alt delete or minimize and the mouse doesn't move I just have to press the restart button. I bought a new graphics card back in september and it hasn't given me any problems until now. Well actully I don't know if it is the graphics card, it problay isn't. Does anyone have any ideas help please it is getting so annoying online. Like when I play Age of Empires III I just leave my ally all alone because I have to restart my computer.

Maybe it doesn't stop after 30 minutes I was play counter Strike source and it took over an hour before it froze up please help. Thanks
 

Answer:Computer freezes after 30 minutes of playing games

Sounds like either a heat problem, or a psu problem.

Check your temps.

Is your psu putting out enough power for your system?

I see from your specs that you have a 380watt psu. Is it a good quality psu, or a cheap no name brand that came with your case?

Take a look at this psu wattage calculator HERE Remember to add a further 30% to what ever figure it gives you. This is because even a good quality psu will only achieve around 70% efficiency. A cheap psu wont achieve anywhere near that.

You might also want to take a look at this excellent article on psu`s.The psu thread.

Answer:Solved: Computer Freezes minutes after reboot

Click Start > Run > type msconfig

Select the Startup tab.

Other than your antivirus and firewall, most applications can be unchecked.
Also, you have traces of Symantec in your log. Run the Norton Removal Tool.

i'm running windows XP and everytime i try to log on, the screen freezes on the desktop image (without any icons or startup bar) for a good 10-15 minutes until it all loads. i haven't installed any new software lately that i can think of, and see no reason for it to all of a sudden be like this. i've run ad-aware, spybot, norton antivirus, and spysweeper numerous times and nothing has changed. here is a hijackthis log for all it's worth, can someone help please? i don't really understand alll the codes, so i don't know what things are unnecessary. are those msn game things necessary? because i don't think i've done one of those in about a year. i've also gotten rid of the sims, so if that can be deleted let me know. thanks in advance

Answer:computer freezes on desktop for 10-15 minutes at startup

Howdy,

This is some sort of flaw with the MSN app, or a connection issue. I am going to move the thread over to internet and see what they can come up with.

Running XP - Start up is nominal and can check Outlook Express, Firefox etc for a few minutes but then they freeze (with constant hour glass). Control/Alt/delete shows programs running but is otherwise unresponsive in closing them. Dont believe it to be an overheat problem because bathing the computer in fast cold air from a room fan does not alter the symptoms.

WORD, notepad , Excel will not open after freeze although the mouse can still open a printer icon, for example, and open Advanced System Care (but the latter then also freezes}. Also, I can open lists of my saved files but it I then open them in WORD etc the panel freezes!
Have tried booting up in "last known good config." but no joy!

Help would be very Welcome!

Every time I start up my computer, it is perfectly fine, but a few minutes in, no matter what I am doing, it will freeze for about a second, and then a minute later, it will freeze again, and sometimes my programs freeze and I just can't do anything, and sometimes my mouse freezes too. After this I am forced to force-shutdown my computer, because it never unfreezes. However, when this started happening (about a week ago), I don't think I had downloaded anything new for days. I looked through my startup programs, as well as services (EVERY SINGLE SERVICE), but none of them seem to be the problem. The strangest thing is, I ran tons of virus scans (while in safe mode), and they all came out perfectly clean. My computer works absolutely fine in safe mode, but I would like to be able to actually run it normally. for more info and logs, please check out my comment on this forum (I switched to techsupportforum after days of no help on computerhope):

Answer:Computer freezes after a few minutes in normal mode no matter what

Welcome to TSF :)

Actually sounds like your hard drive might have some errors on it.


Go to Start ---> Run ---> Type the following chkdsk c: /f

You will probably be prompted to reboot to allow it to run at reboot. Let me know if it was successful.

After I installed AVG PC Tune UP and Antivirus is when the compmuter started acting up. I ran the PC Tuneup and it showed me a list of services that I could Disable. After I disabled the services the computer started to freeze mintues after logging in. I went in safe mode deleted both AVG programs and enabled all the services, but the computer still froze. At this point sometimes it was a succesful login, and when it was the computer was very slow almost unresponsive. I went back into safe mode and installed Avast Internet Security and scanned the computer for viruses, and it found 3 viruses and deleted them. So, I tried logging in again, but no luck. In safe mode, I went to the msconfig and disabled startup programs and disabled some services that were not needed. After I did that the computer seemed to run a little faster, but it still froze; and the user account background has been changed to black. So, does this seem like there is still a virus in the computer?

Hello, I am posting this from Safemode with Networking. I got to Safemode by quickly going to msconfig and changing the startup, as Safemode would not startup if I pressed F8, it would freeze at one of the lines. I am new here and could really use some help. Thanks!

I've been having problems for a while now. It's 2 actually.

First problem is that sometimes when I'm just doing stuff on my computer (browsing, watching videos) the screen just freezes or sometimes goes all black and it sounds like the computers restarting. However, the screen just stays black so I hold the power button to turn it off. When I try to turn it on again the screen still just stays black. I have to wait about 6 minutes or so then try turning on again and it will boot properly.

Second problem is that whenever I do Shut Down properly, after "Saving your settings, Computer is shutting down" or something I get a Blue Screen saying some STOP error and it says that the Windows Logon process has terminate unexpectedly or something similar. So once again I must hold the power button to turn off the computer.

Also, I think my hard drive may be failing. It's partitioned into C and D. C has got all my Windows files on it while D is just for storage. sometimes when I download things it won't save because of a bad sector or something. Does this have anything to do with my computer acting up?

I've attached my HijackThis log. please help. I have no idea what's happening.

I have has this problem for the last 24hours. I've never had anything like this before. I've just moved house so thought it might be something loose but I've checked everything several times. Every time I think it's ok, or I'm doing some work it just turns itself off (only seen blue screen once) and then re-starts. It's driving me mad! Any help would be greatly appreicated.
 

Answer:My computer freezes and then restarts itself (every few minutes). Tried System Restore but no good.

Hi there. I will help you get back on your feet here...

What's your current system? (Windows version + 32-bit or 64-bit)
