Computer keeps freezing randomly, Freezes randomly and forced to restart

Question: Computer keeps freezing randomly, Freezes randomly and forced to restart

Myself, along with a couple of other people on this forum have been experiencing the exact same problem. I also found some other people on other virus help forums who have the same problem as well. This new ?virus? seems to be spreading, and no one seems to know what to do about it. It just started during the beginning of April.

The main problem is that my computer just keeps randomly freezing. It can happen every 10 - 15 minutes or even up to an hour. The computer just freezes and you can?t do anything except for seeing your mouse move around. Ctrl alt delete does nothing at all either. It just locks up and you are forced to manually turn off the computer and restart it. It is extremely frustrating. It all started during the beginning of April where my computer restarted on its own, then it just started freezing up.

I ran several anti virus programs, spy ware removal programs, and an AVG scan and could find nothing of any relevance. I even had a technician come to my house and he couldn?t find anything. He thinks that it?s the memory or ram, but I highly doubt that, my laptop is only like 2 years old.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a new virus I believe and it is driving me insane, thank you!

I have ran a Malware Antimalware Bites scan, AVG, Ad Aware, Spybot, and SUPERAntiSpyware scans, all found nothing.

Preferred Solution: Computer keeps freezing randomly, Freezes randomly and forced to restart

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.)

Hi,

Whenever I start up my desktop, sometimes I'll get a brief 'hang' where my computer freezes and then normal operation resumes. About 10-30 seconds later, these hangs become more frequent until I am completely stuck. Sometimes my mouse cursor changes its icon. I am not able to use my keyboard either. Nowdays whenever I see the first hang I just restart and after the restart things are usually fine.

I can't think of what changed recently, but whenever I boot-up I'm just browsing the web on Chrome - Reddit/Facebook etc...

Here's the TSG SysInfo:

For the past couple months my computer has been freezing constantly and I've had to do a number of fixes to try to alleviate the problem.
 
I did a complete reformat in January because the computer would not start windows at all. It would get to the login screen and stop right there. 
Then a little while later I had a similar problem and this time I fixed it by unchecking all unnecessary services and startup items. That fixed the problem for a while but now the computer freezes randomly while I'm using it, and I can't pin down what the problem is.
 
I'll be browsing the computer normally, and then randomly it will lock up, usually early after I startup the computer. If its started up correctly and worked for a few hours it tends to keep working correctly, even throughout the night if I leave it on and pick up the next day(I don't do this very often but thought I'd mention it nonetheless). So the problem seems to creep up early rather than later on. I rarely, after 8 hours of the computer working, get a freeze.

Hello, I have been getting random freezes ever since I installed windows 7 starter... I had no problems before when this PC was running windows 7 trial version. When it happens my PC becomes unresponsive and whatever audio is played is looped(at a certain frequency) which is very annoying.. The only thing that functions is the CD/DVD drive. I have been trying to search for solutions but whatever solution I try from people with the same problem as me doesnt work. Please help me I don't know much about computers..
 
Edit: Also I can't seem to recreate this freezing thing. but most of the time it happens when I'm playing games... Although it sometimes happens even when I'm just browsing.
 
PS: Sorry for my english, im not american btw haha

Answer:My computer randomly freezes requires manual restart...

AFAIK...Windows 7 Starter is an OEM version already installed in a system.
 
Please explain what you did when you "installed" it, where you obtained the Win Starter version from, etc.

My Problem
I have 2 problems with my computer, both of which require me to hold the power button down for 5 seconds to hard reboot (and I wait 30 seconds before turning it back on because I heard that was good somewhere...). My computer either:

A) randomly loses signal to the monitor, resulting in the monitor going to sleep while my computer is still on. When this happens, audio from iTunes continues to play normally, but I cannot pause it or control the volume which I can usually do from my keyboard. This leads me to believe that I have absolutely no control over my computer when my computer loses signal with the monitor. This can happen at any time... when I'm playing a videogame, browsing the internet, or when the computer is locked and I'm not using it at all.

B) randomly freezes. This locks up the computer completely and I am unable to move my mouse or control anything. I don't know if audio continues to play because this hasn't occurred while I've been listening to something on iTun... Read more

Answer:Computer randomly freezes AND randomly loses signal (Hardware issue)

This is my motherboard
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1156 - GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.0)
though I'm not sure if mine is rev 1.0 or rev 1.1

I'm hoping that the issue isn't the CPU, Graphics Card, or Hard Drive, as those would cost me the most trouble / money.

Could it be an issue with the BIOS? I don't really know what that is or how it works.

I have a 17' Samsung 700Z laptop about two years old. Lately, it has been freezing up. I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or a driver issue or something else. It usually freezes when I am gaming but sometimes freezes when I'm using Firefox as well. Freezes, no mouse movement, audio glitches out and the only fix is to restart it. It will freeze within ten minutes again though.

Then it started to randomly shut down almoust like it went to sleep mode the fans were on and so was the motherboard lamp, but the screen was of and keyboard wasnt reakting to "caps lock" or "Num lock".

And when i restarted my computer it would not boot up, it would be in the same state as it crashed or it would turn on and then freeze when windows pops up or earlier.

Now im getting Multi colour BSOD, and then it just go in to sleep mode state as i told before.

Good day all,

For some reason lately, when restarting my PC and logging in (with a picture password) the Metro Start screen that comes up sometimes randomly freezes/locks up. I can still move my mouse but the tiles aren't clickable at all nor do the live tiles change. Any buttons on the Metro UI don't respond either and the charms bar doesn't show up. It is as if the screen is completely frozen except for my mouse. This only happens during a restart; a cold boot doesn't cause this.

During this freeze I only have 2 ways to get out of it:
1. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del and doing a restart. Choosing to log off instead and logging in again still shows the Metro Start screen in a locked condition.
2. Pressing the Windows key. When doing that, the screen blinks and it brings me to the Desktop. An error shows up in my events saying that Explorer.exe has crashed. Here's the log:

The program Explorer.EXE, version 6.3.9600.17284 is not responding to Windows and has been shut down.

UPDATE: I noticed that this problem only occurs when using a picture password to log in. Typing a password instead doesn't cause this freeze.

HI my Lenovo y70-70 freezes and hangs from time to time. At first it was only once in awhile and only for a few secconds. It's gotten worse and is now more frequent and can last from more thea a minute. It occurs in games, in webbrowsers and in other programs as well, like word. I've had problems with flashing screen but got it replaced.

Hello Kevin and welcome to TSF,

Did you install any new hardware or software recently?

Please go Start->Control Panel. In the control Panel, be sure you are on Classic View and then choose System.
*In the System window, go to Advanced tab. There, under the headline of Startup and Recovery, please click the Settings button.
*Under the headline of System failure, please UNcheck the box that says Automatically restart. Now, instead of just rebooting, your pc will show a blue screen including information we will need in order to help you. Please, when it happens, either take a picture of it and upload it here or write down the message that it gives on your next reply.

Answer:Computer randomly restart!

A google search shows that memory (RAM) is a good possibility for the problem.
First step, with the PC powered off, reseat all the memory modules.

If it continues run a memory test and/or remove all but one memory module and try it again. If it still does it, replace that memory module with a different one. If it still does it, there are other problems but at least you have eliminated the memory.

My computer, which is Windows 2000 and on an office network keeps restarting for no apparent reason. Sometimes it restarts when I try to run WMP and another program, sometimes it restarts when I log in, and sometimes I don't do anything and it restarts. It isn't overheating, I checked.

I ran all the anti-virus, spy ware, registry mech. stuff... I defraged and I disk cleaned. I have no idea what to do next. Any suggestions?

OH YEAH, it will not start in safe mode or debug... If I try to start in one of these modes it will began to start windows and then restart.

Trying to figure out where to start. I can't really figure out a pattern, but sometimes my computer crashes during shutdown, restart or if I enable sleep. The only pattern I notice is that the longer it is on the more likely it will crash when I restart or shutdown.

Message I see on screen:
Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error
info, and then we'll restart for you. (100% complete)

If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE

It will set there with this message for about an hour, usually I just hit power switch at that point.

I have already disabled the auto restart function in Windows, and yet my computer will still restart. Also, it will shut down for no apparent reason. This mainly happens when I play a large game such as Unreal Tournament or Warcraft III, not when I am searching the internet.

Also, my computer will freeze when browsing the internet. Usually, I'm listening to music and the music stops, and I can't really click anything. After that, usually about 3 seconds or so, I lose control of the mouse and things like ctrl+alt+delete and the power button, sleep button don't work on my keyboard.

I have looked on the inside of my computer and it is dusty in there, could that be the problem?

My computer used to freeze more often, until I removed ViewPoint Media player (whatever that is)...

Any help?

EDIT: When my browser freezes I get two warnings in the system log.
The first one says: "Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 001839067F33. The following error occurred:

Hello all,

I've recently had an issue where my PC intermittently freezes. It'll normally start off with one program that stops responding and eventually all the other open ones will do the same. Windows Explorer also tends to stop responding. Some open programs are unaffected and I'm able to interact with them to a limited degree (a few actions and closing them) but I am unable to open any new programs. I reinstalled Windows a couple of months ago in an attempt to fix this same problem but it seems to have resurfaced.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I've been having this problem ever since i first built the computer a couple of weeks ago and me being not very tech savvy, i have basically ran out of ideas. When i first built the computer i booted it all up using the hard drive out of my old pc. That's when i first started to notice the freezes and i presumed that it was just a failing hard drive (even though it worked fine in my other pc), I guess i just wanted peace of mind. Anyway, i got my brand new ssd yesterday and installed windows. Installed the motherboard drivers and the graphics drivers of the disc and everything was running fine, i thought the problem had gone away but it hadn't. My pc had froze while installing a game. No black screen, it just locks up completely unable to do anything unless i hard reset. Now it freezes pretty much within 5 minutes of me entering windows through the log in screen.
I've done a bit of troubleshooting but i can't think of anything else i can do of the top of my head.

Things i have done:
:I thought it might be the GPU so i took it out and swapped it for my old HD 5550-the freezing continued.
:I ran furmark and prime95 to check temps. The gpu didn't get above 70 and my cpu didn't get above 58 on max load.
: I swapped the RAM round in the channels, freezing continued. I tried running it from individual sticks and swapping them around but no.

im goimg to point the finger mainly at the gpu drivers bundled with the card. the ones on the disc for my 6950 would cause it to blue screen quite frequently. updating them solved it.

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

This issue has been going on for at least a couple weeks now. At first it seemed that randomly my mouse pointer would suddenly freeze and I would have to reboot the machine to gain control again. I have used a couple different mice lately on this computer so eventually I went back to the other previous mouse. However, not long after the same issue started up again. I tried deleting/disabling drivers of the mice and deleting/reinstalling their drivers, etc. but to no avail.

Recently I noticed that it seems that the whole computer is freezing and not just the mouse pointer.....as far as I can tell. I today did a disk cleanup of drive C (I have multiple hard drives), and defragged drive c (although the computer froze during the defragging process and I had to manually reboot). I also ran an Adaware scan and a full Nod 32 anti-virus scan. I tried to eliminate every problem these scans found. The computer is still randomly freezing though.

Please help!

My computer has done this with XP, then with W7, W8 and now with W8.1. I'm using my computer and suddenly it just freezes completely. It freezes when using Google Chrome, Spotify... My son likes to watch videos a lot, so first I thought it could be my graphics card.

I bought a new graphics card, but no help, still the same problem. I re-installed my Windows cleaning totally the hard-drive, no help.

I created an "artificial" BSOD with the instructions given, but the blue screen appeared already before the system even started, so it must be one of the non-Microsoft drivers causing it(?).

My computer:
Asus P5N-T Deluxe
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 2,4 GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660
Seagate Barracuda ST325041
2x Kingston DDR2 memory 2GB

Answer:Computer freezing randomly.

I have random freezes too and my problem is the hard disk. Maybe your HDD has also a problem. You can check it for bad sectors by using free diagnostic software like CrystalDiscInfo.

I have a problem with my computer where I could just be doing any thing like surfing the internet, playing a game, or just leaving it idle and it just ends up freezing. I can't move my mouse or do anything on my computer. I'm not really sure what to do and any help would be awesome! Here is my HijackThis log

Hi everyone.

This is my first post on this forum, so nice to meet you all.

I'll cut right to the chase. I recently did away with my old P4 computer (which was approaching the 3 years of age mark) and built myself a new rig. It has the following specs:

CPU: INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 2.4GHZ 8M
Memory: 4 GB TEAM XTREEM DARK PC6400
Motherboard: ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS
HDD: WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB 7200RPM PATA 16MB
Graphics Card: ATI RADEON X850XT PLATINUM EDITION

Note that the graphics card is actually my old graphics card. Most cards these days are too expensive and mine runs most games fairly decently so I decided to just hold on to it until nVidia's first round of DX10 cards have gone down in price.

Okay, now I'm running Windows XP Professional SP2 (32-bit). As I understand it this should be no problem (even if the Quad Core is 64-bit). I was also under the impression that Windows XP officially supported upto 4 GB of RAM; however, that it wouldn't utilize all of it.

However, whenever I stick in all 4 of them it starts freezing randomly.

So my question is: Is there a way to utilize all of the 4 GB of RAM and maintain stability in Windows XP Professional?

If there isn't then I guess I might go out and pickup Windows XP Professional (64-bit). I'm loathe to spend the money upgrading to Vista at the moment.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance guys. I really appreciate it.
 

Answer:New computer freezing randomly.

Welcome to TSG....

If there is a way of getting Windows XP Pro to recognize all 4 Gb of RAM that would be a good one. If the machine works ok with 3 GB run with it. If you want to move up to the 64 bit version of XP Pro try and find an upgrade disk it will be a lot cheaper than the full version.

One other thing you can use the old hard drive from the PIV as a slave drive in the new computer and use it for storage or what-ever else you need.

Hello,

Sorry if this is in the wrong area of the forums, if it is, please feel free to move it.

I have recently built a new computer with Windows 8, the specs are

AMD Piledriver FX-8 Eight Core 8350 Black Edition 4.00GHz (Socket AM3+) Processor

Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7850 OC Windforce 2X 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AMD 970 (Socket AM3+) DDR3 ATX Motherboard

Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

I am having problems where my computer will just suddenly freeze up and I wont be able to do anything. I wont get a blue screen of death the majority of the time, however, when I open up some software called Speccy to check my system temperatures, I get a BSOD.

It never crashes when I'm playing games, but I don't seem to get very good FPS on games such as Guild wars 2.

I have tried to fix this problem by doing things such as memtest, changing RAM timings, moving the RAM around in to different sockets, buying a new hard-drive, buying a new power supply and reinstalling drivers.

I am almost certain it isn't a hardware problem, which is why I'm posting in this section. Any help would be brilliant. I am able to give the .dmp files from the blue screens if needed. I can also give the information from the Windows event logs.
Thank you

I have a Dell Dimension 8400. It has XP Home Edition.
Pentium 4 CPU, 3 GHz, 2.99 GHz, 512 MB of RAM

I can't remember how to check to see how much free memory I have but I know it is a decent proportion. This computer is about 2 years old. We have McAfee installed (virus scan, firewall protection, anti-spam) and it's set to automatic update.

I went through and got rid of the start up applications that I don't need running (on start up) and I cleared history, temp files, cookies etc. The computer freezes quite randomly. Seems to freeze more when running more than one application or doing something that is harder for it (downloading etc.) which seems normal, but it's not consistent in it's freezing.

I don't know what else to do????

Anyone?

Hi maddox,Start by making sure your computer is free of dust and debris. Check all fans to make sure they turn freely. Pay special attention to your processor fan. Overtemp problems could cause freezing or reboots. Next, I would download Memtest86+. This is a free stand alone memory diagnostic. Let that run and test your memory. I hope this helps,rigel

Myself, along with a couple of other people on this forum have been experiencing the exact same problem. I also found some other people on other virus help forums who have the same problem as well. This new ?virus? seems to be spreading, and no one seems to know what to do about it. It just started during the beginning of April.

The main problem is that my computer just keeps randomly freezing. It can happen every 10 - 15 minutes or even up to an hour. The computer just freezes and you can?t do anything except for seeing your mouse move around. Ctrl alt delete does nothing at all either. It just locks up and you are forced to manually turn off the computer and restart it. It is extremely frustrating. It all started during the beginning of April where my computer restarted on its own, then it just started freezing up.

I ran several anti virus programs, spy ware removal programs, and an AVG scan and could find nothing of any relevance. I even had a technician come to my house and he couldn?t find anything. He thinks that it?s the memory or ram, but I highly doubt that, my laptop is only like 2 years old.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a new virus I believe and it is driving me insane, thank you!

On Tuesday of last week (8-21-12) I turned on my PC like I always do. after about 10 minutes of being on and me opening up Diablo 3 my computer completely froze. nothing would respond not even Ctrl+Alt+Del. So I had to hard shut down the computer. After that a few hours later it did it again. this time I was just on internet explorer.

So with me being the way I am I Reformated my computer to see if that would solve the issue. and it has not.

So everyday now that I turn on my computer it seems to randomly Freeze. I have ran a windows Memory Diagnostic. I put it on Extra with Cache on and had it run 3 passes. it took about an hour and 20 min and windows found no errors or anything. I have NO idea what could be causing this. I dont wanna spend money if I can target the problem and replace the hardware thats bad.

I built this computer myself and it has had NO issues since I built it and this time I cant figure it out myself.

Please is there anything I can run or do to try and locate the problem? Could it be a failing power supply? the one I have in there is a 4-5 year old 1000w psu. here are my computer specs.

Nice system
"So with me being the way I am, I Reformatted my computer to see if that would solve the issue... and it has not" The easiest thing to start with here is the power supply. Are all the fans running normally? Is the PS under the lifetime warranty? Fan controllers can cause trouble. Try disconnecting it temporarily

This is happening only when I'm playing games, it happened yesterday on League of Legends, a game that requires no stress on any hardware, and it also happened on Battlefield, in which I have almost all settings set to low.

Everything stays frozen up so to see what was happening I opened up all those windows to try and monitor any weird usage, and I got nothing. Everything looks perfectly normal, no heating, no RAM being sucked away, CPU and disk usage seem fine.

I'm desperate... I just got a new power supply and this was already happening before. It's a corsair 750w bronze which is better than this horrible quality one I had before.

Other hardware:
Intel Core i5-4590 3.30GHz
Asus AMD R7 260x DirectCU II OC 2gb
16gb of ram (2x8gb)
MSI Z97-Gaming 3

Pictures taken right when it froze up:

Not sure what else might be needed...

Edit: I was playing CS:GO yesterday until my CPU usage rampaged to 100%. It started getting very jittery and gave me FPS spikes. I could barely aim, it was literally like 1 FPS or even less. I wasn't able to check my CPU's temps due to a blue screen coming up shortly after. This one is weird.
 

Answer:Computer randomly freezing up.

Did you happen to catch the STOP error in the BSOD? If not you may be able to find it in Event Viewer. That may be the key to point you in the right direction.
Other Ideas:
Maybe try pulling a RAM stick one at a time and test.
Update or roll back video driver
Reseat or swap video card if not onboard
Check Mobo for bulging caps

Usually I can solve my computer problems, but I am at a real loss.
 
This started up just Wednesday. At first I thought my mouse was freezing, but I'm unable to alt+tab or use the windows key while the freezing occurs. It happens for about 10 seconds and then lets back up, and then will freeze again soon after.
 
When this starts to happen, the cursor will hang on whichever it was last, not returning to the default arrow unless I hover over something that turns it back into an arrow. (This part is kind of hard to explain.)
 
My computer is relatively new, just being built a few months ago. It has 16gb Ram so I know that shouldn't be the issue.
Other specs that may be necessary:
64-bit OS
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570k CPU @ 3.40GHz
Windows 7 Pro running Service pack 1

Hello there

It's been a while my computer's been randomly freezing, but I didn't really mind because it was happening very rarely. Now I have relocated (to a colder place, I'll get to the cooling issue later), and rebuilt my computer today, and it is now freezing very often.

Sometimes it happens while I'm doing something, sometimes it happens while I'm logging on, the desktop doesn't have the time to show up, and sometimes it happens right when the Windows boot screen appears. I can trigger the crash by doing lots of stuff at the same time, like creating many particles in Powder Toy while having a video on the screen. I noticed it used to happen most of the time while I was watching videos, back when it was rare.

What happens is that it stays stuck on the same image and doesn't respond to anything. I noticed the HDD led always goes off when it happens.

So, first of all, my specs:

Motherboard: Asus P5N-T Deluxe
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 (2.66Ghz)
RAM: 3x Kingston HyperX 1Gb, 1033Ghz (DDR2)
GPU: Colorful GTX260
OS: WinXP Pro SP3 (x86)
PSU: Corsair TX650 (650W)

Here's what I did so far:

- I unplugged everything unnecessary (including USB devices and network cable). I left only one RAM, one hard drive, ...
- I've tried with a different GPU (a GeForce 7600GT, for reference), had the same problem.
- I've tried with each of my RAMs, on different slots, always had the same problem.
- It might not be the hard drive, it... Read more

Answer:Computer freezing randomly

I replaced all my SATA cables, plugged the hd on a different port, the problem is still here. I've checked the SMART data using a tool from Hirens bootcd, it says 100% health..

Then I ran a full hard drive test using the manufacturer's program, no error was reported.

I also did some tests using PC-Check:
- Motherboard test
- CPU test
- Full stress test (hard drive, cd/dvd, cpu, memory)

Nothing wrong reported.

Then I tried to run the memory test, and it froze right after the first test, at this step: http://i40.tinypic.com/116i2qc.jpg

I ran Memtest86+ with my three RAMs and it reported tons of error, but it works when only one is present. But the PCCheck test still crashes.
So I'm even more confused now, because I've tried with every RAM I have, even with a different set, and I have the same problem with all of them...

Any idea? I'd be most thankful

My computer is as follows:

MS Windows XP Home SP3
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+, 2.0 GB Corsair XMAS2 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT

My computer has been freezing for what seems like ever since I built it. I reformatted it in January/December ish, and it eventually started freezing again randomly. It will freeze when I search the internet, while I'm playing music/video, while I'm playing a game, while I'm not doing anything, etc. It's all random. There is no pattern to it.

I tried updating my drivers. But I'm pretty sure most of them are up to date.

I'm thinking this is a Mobo or PSU problem, but I have no knowledge on how to figure out if its true. This is a custom built computer, so when I was doing research on how to fix freezing problems, I came across information on PSU not sending out enough power? Or too much?

When I talked to my friend who helped me built the computer, about the PSU potential issue, he confirmed that it probably isn't the PSU because he hand picked the parts I was going to use and my power supply is sufficient for what system I have I guess (Enermax Model ELT500AWT).

So I'm completely confused to approach this thing. I used CCleaner multiple times to fix any problems with the registry, but the freezing problem is still persistent. Happening multiple times every day and requiring a restart....

I also used Windows Memory Diagnostic and another memory diagnostic tool (I forgot the name), last fall... Read more

My computer randomly freezes up. I am ALWAYS able to move my cursor and if I ctrl+alt+del, task manager pops up. I can even move things around. However, whatever the current page/folder/etc is becomes frozen. I can click on stuff in my taskbar but it just freezes. After awhile, my comp just completely freezes up and I hear a noise coming from inside my case. At that point I have to do a hard reboot. This all happened after one time while playing a game when my computer randomly restarted by itself. I then got a message saying something like "a device has been installed". I've already ran multiple thorough virus/adware/malware/registry scans and nothing came up. Drivers are fine, video card is fine, fans are fine. No BSoDs and no other noticable issues besides freezing up randomly. Im really stumped on what is causing this problem.

I think an important thing to note is that I used a system restore point set to a week back before any symptoms occured. I still had the problem. Problem wasn't noticable until 4/14.

Hello everyone.

Its been a very frustrating couple of days for me, as my computer is constantly locking up. Ill start by letting you know what is in it. MSI 648f Neo mainboard, NVidia 6600 GT video card, Pentium 4 2.4 processor, soundblaster live 24 bit soundcard, 1.5 GB DDR RAM, 80 GB harddrive. Ok, now for the problem.

3 days ago I was playing a game (World of Warcraft) and everything was fine with my computer. Have never had any major problems with it in the past, and it was running perfectly fine. Then out of nowhere it turned off, this was so quick that i thought for a second the power went out, and turned right back on. Then it went through the normal start up procedure and just as it was about to hit the desktop it restarted. This happened 3 more times until i manually powered the computer down and waited about 10 minutes, then turned it back on. This time it loaded up just fine, and I connected to the internet and loaded the game I was playing back up. 5 minutes later it restarted again, but went right through the start up with no problems. This time though it would restart as i connected to the internet. Twice it did that then when starting up on the 3rd time it did a file check and deleted a ton of stuff.

Then when attempting to start the computer, it gave an error saying C:\Windows\System32 (cant remember the exact file name) is missing or corrupted. I then reformatted the harddrive thinking it was a virus or something along those lines and went to install windo... Read more

Answer:Computer Randomly Freezing

Well,from what you said, it does sound like a power surge or outage. Ive only seen a power strip actually work how it was suppose to once. I bet something on the motherboard got fried.

As far as the loading of widows, did you clean your cdrom player? Also, one way to check the CD player is uninstall it in your Hardware manager and it will reload the drivers when you reboot. While you're there check for any uninstalled hardware.

I've had this issue since January but its very on and off so its not bothered me too much, but in the past few days I've started playing Payday 2 and its increased tenfold so would love to finally figure out what it is.
 
Every so often, my computer will just freeze. Nothing goes blank, no BSOD or anything it all just freezes and I have to hold power down to shut it down each time. Back in February I decided to upgrade my system a bit and hoped this issue would go but it seems to be following me
 
I upgraded my Motherboard/PSU/CPU then so the only things that have been around since the first few issues are RAM and GPU. Not sure how to give you specs but I've got this image:
 

 
I've ran tests on my system a few times like MemTest86 and 3DMark to see if it said anything. I've also clean installed my PC a few times over that point and reseated my RAM and made sure things are all connected properly. I'm at a loss whats causing this, and it doesn't help that nothing is logged when it freezes. Event Viewer just says "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. " but no errors beforehand and it doesn't seem any crash dumps are being recorded as that last one is back in April.
 
Any help or things I could try would be great!

So this has been happening for a while but it has been increasingly frequent nowadays. My computer would just freeze as if you were looking at a screenshot. The cursor animation would stop moving, everything does not respond. Capslock and numlock do not respond when i press it on the keyboard. Everytime this happens I would do a hard reset (using the button on the tower). Of course my computer is a little old and that might be the problem but I think there might be malware that could be doing this as well. It used to never happen at all, then it became once every week, then once daily. Now it happens a few times a day and it seems to randomly hit. Any help?

I'm having issues with my computer randomly freezing. Once it freezes the only thing I can do is turn the computer off by holding down the power button.
Nothing in particular seems to cause the freezing, as sometimes it freezes when just left on the desktop with no programs open. The freezes occur within 30 mins of turning on the computer without fail.
The only fix I have found is to slide the hardware acceleration right down to none, which stops the freezing altogether. However with the hardware acceleration set to none, graphics in some games all seem to be messed up, which is obviosuly annoying.
I thought the issue might be with the display driver, as when attempting to access my nvidia control panel I received an error message telling me to re-install the driver. However this did not solve the problem.
I am not that knowledgeable about computers, so really don't know what to do next. What does the hardware acceleration actually do? Do i need a new graphics card?
Any help please.

Answer:Computer Freezing Randomly

Hi Chris,
When you purchased your PC , you migh have got PC driver cd along with it. While using that CD you will find various drivers like sound drivers, Display drivers etc. So install those drivers and then restart your machine, i am sure your problem will have solved.

For a while now my computer has been freezing randomly and I get that "not responding" message on the window but it eventually does strart responding. It can happen at any time whether I'm browsing some site or when I'm not online. So today I did a clean install of Windows 7 today and the same thing is happening with only Win7 on it. Any ideas as to whats causing this? Is the hard drive on the way out? Could the motherboard be going bad? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi

I started this thread http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=192445 I have done everything that it suggested.

I was on my computer last night and a similar thing happened only this time I was just on the internet and my screen didn't go black and my monitor power down, it just froze on the webpage I was looking at.

I have had this problem for some time now, I can go a decent length of time without it doing it, and the most common occurrence is for the screen to just freeze when it does, the black screen power down thing happens quite rarely.

I have been running weekly scans with Mcfee, and I also use Antivir, Sypbot and Spyware Blaster.

Any help with this problem would be really appreciated.

Thanks

PS I have only attached 4 logs because I couldn't find one for SuperAntiSpyware, then I remembered the scan didn't find anything, so that is presumably why there isn't one.
 

Answer:Computer keeps randomly freezing

Your logs are all clean. You are not having malware problems. I suggest you continue in your thread in the Software Forum. Check to see if your problems occur in safe boot mode and report it there. Also do memory and hard disk tests.


Since you are not having malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:

We recommend you keep SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. Unless you purchase them, they provide no protection. They do not use any significant amount of resources ( except a little disk space ) until you run a scan.
If we used Pocket Killbox during your cleanup, do the below
Run Pocket Killbox and select File, Cleanup, Delete All Backups

If we had you use ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix (This uninstall will only work as written if you installed ComboFix on your Desktop like we requested.)
Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. Note the quotes are required
"%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix" /u
Notes: The space between the combofix" and the /u, it must be there.
This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults.
Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
If running Vista, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall Hi... Read more

I would check and replug all of your psu connections. Since they are random I would lean towards a psu problem (possible failing psu) versus a heat problem. Still would not be a bad idea to download realtemp to check temps.

Just yesterday night, my computer started having these random freezes. The computer is roughly 2 years old, and I never had any issues with it (apart from it occasionally BSODing on certain flash videos, which I solved with a flash update). 
 
Here's what happens (steps 1-2 happen simultaneously in ~1 second)
 
1) fan turns off
2) everything stops responding (mouse, keyboard, whathaveyou)
3) after awhile computer shuts down
 
Just when this happens is completely random as far as I can tell. It has happened a few hours after computer was turned on, a few minutes after I boot into Windows, a few seconds after I boot into Windows... The applications I have open do not seem to have an effect on this.
 
It also happens in Safe Mode. BUT it does not seem to happen in linux. (I dual boot)
 
I have memtest86+ that came with my linux, and that came up clean. I tried scanning for malware with malwarebytes, hijackthis, MSE. All clean. I tried system restore to a system restore point before this jazz started happening. 
 
Nothing I tried has solved the problem. I googled around online and saw that someone with same laptop as I have said their wireless card caused this issue. I tried disabling wireless in Windows. Nope. It doesn't seem to be a temperature issue, since I have a laptop cooler and also have Core Temp on so I can watch the temps.

Hi, I bought a computer a little less than a year ago from a co-worker. It has worked fine until the past few days, it has been freezing completely, requiring me to manually turn it off and on before I can perform any other tasks. I've checked the temperatures on the computer and they all are under 50 degrees Celsius. As I'm not the most computer savvy, I'm not sure what to do next or why this is happening. To my knowledge I have not done anything to the computer, no new programs recently that would have caused anything to happen. I have tried to system restore the computer a week or so back as well, with no luck of the problem stopping. If anyone knows anything I can do to try to fix this, that would be very helpful, thanks.

G'day All,

For the past six months I have been having an issue with my computer randomly freezing and requiring it to be turned off and then back on, once back on it has no issues until next time it freezes. This happens intermittently, it may not happen at all one day then three times the next day. It is difficult to pin point any operations happening at the time as it may happen whilst on the internet, email, watching video's - nothing specific.
Occasionally when it happens whilst watching a video the sound comes through the speaks incredible slowely as though it has just slowed right up, as opposed to completely stopped. This does not happen all the time. Below are my specs:

Intel Core i5 3570K
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
G.Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600Mhz DIMM
Seagate Barracuda 3.5 2TB 7200rpm 64MB SATA3

Microsoft Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit
Originally a Gainward GeForce GTX560Ti 1GB GDDR5, this unit burntitself out so it has been replaced with Asus 1GB dual Cooling Fan GeForce GTX650Ti

If anyone could advise on things that I need to check to get this issue solved that would be great!
Thanks in advance.

Hey Erik The Red again I'm not sure whether this topic is meant to go here or not so just move it if I'm wrong! So i have a problem and it isn't anything big but it just gets quite annoying sometimes.
My computer randomly freezes like completely as in I can't move the mouse and when I press Num/Caps/Scroll Lock keys the lights on my keyboard don't change or anything and doesn't register to any input. This usually on random occasions ( so like not every time I do it ) like when I am going to and from full screen on a youtube video or I am minimizing or maximizing a game, also sometimes it will happen even when it is on the lock screen if I go away for 5 minutes and I come back and its frozen or sometimes I'll leave the computer for quite a number of hours say if I am going out to work or something ( although I usually turn it off ) and I'll come back with it frozen on the lock screen. It will sometimes go without it freezing for weeks or sometimes it will happen everyday or a couple of times everyday. I'm sure I don't have a virus because I have done quite a few checks with your Malware support team. So thanks in advance for your help with this!

Regards, Erik.

when it does lock up the usb objects are turned off (the mouse and keyboard). upon last checking this computer is clean as far as spyware and viruses. and i ran a memory tester as well.

this problem has only happened (so far) within the windows enviroment (it doesent happen during startup or shutdown).

it tends to happen shortly after the computer is booted after a normal shutdown. but when it does freeze and i hit the reset, it doesent seem to happen after that but will eventually happen when you get involved in something like web browsing or games.

I'm currently prepping for finals week so it really hurt me this morning to find that my laptop is freezing within a maximum of ten minutes of booting up after a malwarebytes scan which found one threat. After cleaning, my laptop has been nearly unusable. Sometimes it freezes after entering my password to log in and other times freezes anywhere from 5-10 minutes of use. When it freezes I can do absolutely nothing no CTRL ALT DELETE, and I am forced to use a manual shut down with the power button. Sometimes I can't past the Welcome Screen, sometimes it freezes when I make it to the desktop, or sometimes it just freezes randomly during browsing the web or working with Microsoft Office applications which leads me to believe that I still may have not gotten rid of the bug. Any help would be extremely helpful since I have no idea how to analyze combofix and hijack logs.

Thanks for any help and logs are provided!

::::LONG POST WARNING::::

First, i'll go over what i've done to modify my computer in the past week.

I downloaded and installed the uxtheme patch to use unsigned msstyles themes on my computer, and loaded up a couple of random themes to try out. Then, yesterday (when the problem began) I downloaded a Windows Automatic Update, but I did not check it's contents. Another problem I've had lately is that when I click on something, it randomly double clicks, but that went away after an AVG virus scan.

Now, in-depth description of the freezing.

While using my computer, at completely random times, it will completely freeze up. That includes the cursor movement, keyboard shortcuts, and buttons on the laptop (using the power button to go into sleep mode, etc.) These problems all started when I first tried out an OS X theme for my laptop.

The freezing seems to be in some way related to using internet browsers (ANY BROWSER) I had been running an AdAware scan a few minutes ago, and it was going on for about an hour, and within 10 minutes of internet browsing with Mozilla Firefox, the computer froze, the same way it always does. I've tried leaving the computer on for up to 8 hours, to no avail.

I can't use System Restore because every time I do it says it failed and nothing on my computer was changed. I cannot reboot my OS because I have no CD Drive (EEE PC) and no boot-compatible Flash Drive. If anyone would be willing to walk me through net-booting step-by-step, I'd be... Read more

Hi, just as my subject says, my computer freezes at random times. Sometimes it will occur during a game, or while surfing the internet, or while I'm doing nothing at all. Sometimes I will get a blue screen of death, but usually it's just a complete freeze and I have to reboot from my power button. I usually wait at least a few minutes before I do the hard restart. If I restart it into safe mode it seems to be ok and is alot quicker. I haven't had it crash yet in safe mode. I also notice that it has become quite sluggish doing basic tasks (opening Mozilla, etc) since the problems began. And when I'm playing a game it will start to cause some sounds to skip for about a minute before it completely freezes. I've scanned with Norton 360, CC Cleaner, Ad Aware, Hijack This, Memtest 86+, Western Digital Data Lifeguard for Windows, and Glary Registry Repair. I've also checked my voltages with Hardware Monitor and installed new thermal paste on my CPU heatsink. Not that I thought heat was the cause, but just because it was a cheap thing to try and the original stuff looked like clay. After the new paste was added I didn't notice any improvement. I also opened it up and blew out the dust. I also did a System Restore in Safe mode to a time before the problems began. One thing that I'm afraid I may have done is damaged my registry with the CC cleaner or Registry Repair. I would scan the registry with those and then hit "Fix all" and let it... Read more

Hey all, my computer has started acting strange the past few days. It starts up normal, takes normal amount of time to start up. But when I start doing something (even something simple like 1 internet window) it will just freeze. It might work again after a while, or it might need to be reset. If I use the ctrl-alt-del thing and get rid of one of the svchost processes, then it seems to do ok. I havent put anything new on, no viruses, etc. This is kinda getting annoying, and this is my 3rd keyboard this year (dont ask about the other 2 ), so I really would like to fix it. I also looked at my Hijackthis log and could find nothing strange. Does anyone have any ideas??

Within the last week, my mom's computer has started to randomly freeze up. Ctl+alt+del does not work, and neither to the mouse it stays in one position no matter what. I did the basics:

I ran adaware, norton antivirus, and used Trendmicro's online antivirus, and nothing was found.

I ran memtest86 and let it run for 2.5 hours (8 passes) and no errors were found. However when I set it to check BIOS-All instead of BIOS-std, it gave me a lot of errors, I am not sure whether is is normal or not though because it shares ram with the video card. Before running the test, I changed the settings in the BIOS to use only 8 MB as VRAM instead of 64.

It froze on me once in safemode when I was running memtest (I found a windows version, from a different place) so I just turned it off.

I opened the case and reseated the RAM just in case it is a bad slot, or was not pushed in all the way. While it was opened I removed some of the dust. I didn't have any canned air, so I was not able to blow it out, but I was still able to remove some of the dust bunnies. The case was not that dirty, the fans were fairly clean and the openings were not clogged. The computer was blowing out relatively cold air, so I do not think that this is an overheating issue.

Hey i recently bought a new custom built gaming PC and it works fine in terms of performance etc however I have had an annoying problem. I've had the PC for just over a week and on two occasions I have had the problem where the PC would just completely freeze to the extent that I can't open task manager, move the mouse and the keyboard would stop working. Also the Skype call I was in would just stop. This would force me to have to reboot my PC using the button on the tower to shut it down. So far the two occasions have happened when I'm not actually on a game and when the problems did happen I was using two different programs. The first occasion I was on OpenOffice and the second occasion I was just browsing using Firefox so i don't think it is program specific.

The first crash happened two days after owning the new pc, the second crash happened today.

Here are my specs:

Alright so I had another thread where my computer was freezing randomly but It only ever happened while browsing the web.

I upgraded my CPU and motherboard to
AMD FX8350
ASUS M5A99x Evo

Both are brand new and I have 3x4gb of Corsair Vengence memory that's also fairly new 3-4 months old now.

Now I have noticed my computer is freezing still but it'll stutter too. I'll think it'll freeze but then I can use the mouse again and after a few seconds. Right before posting this thread was the first time I got a full freeze. I installed this 3-4 days ago.

There are no minidumps of the freezes and all the minidumps in the zip are from when I had the old CPU and motherboard. AMD FX 1055T and Asus M4N75TD.

Answer:Computer freezing randomly

Can you post the other system specs; such as the amount of ram your system has, etc? Also, can you go into the event viewer and copy any error logs that may be related to it(look around the date and time the errors occured in the relevant section(setup, security etc.)

Lately, my computer has been freezing at random times, whether im doing work on Microsoft Word or playing some games or doing nothing. I tried like alot of things to stop it. I used Trend Micro AntiVirus to search for viuses and there happens to be no viruses. Also, I used Webroot Spy Sweeper to find the spyware and get rid of them, but that didn't solve it.

To descriibe exactly what happens, the screen willl still show but everything just STOPS. Nothing would function like the keyboard pr the mouse. I would end up having to hold on the power button for a few seconds to shut it off.

I even tried using programs like RecCure to fix it but nothing works.

Can anyone PLEASE help? Thanks.

Edit: And if you need to know, the computer is around two years old.

Hi, all.

I'm having a problem with this damn PC.
Basically, when running windows normally, it freezes, requiring a hard reboot, of course.
However, I'm having trouble tracking down ANY clues behind the problems as there's no pattern to this.
Generally it's very weird. It'll usually freeze up in the night while I sleep; it very rarely freezes when I'm actually using it.
As I said, there's no pattern. It hasn't done it for the last week, and it freezes this morning, a few hours before I got up...
Before that, it might freeze up at least once per day, or there might be a gap of another week, or a few days.

Now, I'd point at heat - I often set video to encode through the night, and it often freezes in the middle of this. However, there are many nights where I do nothing but leave the PC on IRC, or set it to download some stuff, and it still freezes.
It also doesn't freeze, EVER, when playing stuff like Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. Doom 3 especially will be running all hardware at 110%, so it'd make sense for it to freeze then.
I'm fairly sure this computer runs fairly on the hot side, but if it ran hot enough to freeze up from heat, logic says Doom 3 will kill it each and every time.
I think the ONLY problem I've had with Doom 3 was when my PSU blew out while playing it, but that's another story

So I'm thinking software. I don't trust windows for anything (even though I still use it, haha), so I se... Read more

Answer:Computer freezing... randomly!?

Checked the event viewer in admin tools? While you systems sounds fairly new and should be 100% compatible with Windows APCM (?power management?) I'd look there, because you say it never fails you when your on it, yet when it is idle, or processing over night it locks up.. I had a similar problem, did you notice if the windows clock kept time or froze in the night?

Hello all,

I have a E5200 Pentium Dual-Core processor, ASUS P5K-V mainboard, 4GBs of RAM and a 8800 GTS. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP2. My CPU/GPU temps are (tested using SpeedFan) 45C and 55-59C while idle, 55-60C and 70C while playing games (in this case, Team Fortress 2 and L4D2).

My computer has been freezing randomly for about 2 weeks. It usually happens when I turn it on (usually after loading Windows, when all the desktop stuff shows, but sometimes it freezes even before Windows start). More often, it freezes when I make a slight physical contact with the case (like slightly pushing it). I scanned my computer and there are no viruses and I myself believe this is a hardware-related problem.

What could be the cause of the problem? Is it because my CPU/GPU is overheated? Is my power supply failing?

EDIT: I tried using Hardware Monitor to check the voltages reading.
Vcore: 1.14 V
VIN1: 1.70 V
+3.3V: 3.30 V
+5V: 4.94 V
+12V: 8.36 V
VIN5: 1.72 V
VIN6: 1.22 V

EDIT2: Never mind, looks like HMonitor is incorrect. These are the readings from my BIOS:
Vcore: 1.200 V
3.3V: 3.296 V
5V: 5.160 V
12V: 11,872 V

Is it normal? If so, it's not a PSU problem, is it?

Help appreciated.
 

Answer:Computer freezing randomly...

You could get a diagnostic for the Hard Drive you have in your computer. Just go to the manufacturer's website and go to the support tab to find the diagnostic software. Also, since its happening when the case is moved i would check all connections such as the data cable and power cable going to the HD.

I'm lost and I'm hoping someone more experienced can help me out. I'm not sure if I am even infected with anything but these are the main issues that I am having:1. My computer is randomly freezing. It doesn't blue screen or reboot it just stops dead in its tracks. It happens when I'm using it, browsing the internet, playing games etc. It also happens when I leave it alone doing nothing. Sometimes it happens once per day sometimes every couple hours. I though it may have been overheating but it happens at all different CPU/system temps. This problem is fairly new and has only been happening for about a week.2. Windows takes on average 5min to start up. My computer posts fine its just windows that takes forever. Its been like this a couple months.3. Internet Explorer does not work. It will open but wont do anything.

Hello, I know that this post has been submittd before, because I did a search of this forum. But, when I found the post, I could not reply to it, with my input. So, I am posting this myself.

My computer, which is an ASUS brand computer, that was put-together by a friend of mine, who has a computer shop of his own, was purchased about 3 years ago and is now randomly freezing up on me! I am a novice when it comes to computers, so of course, I am confused on why its doing this to me! I have done everything that is possible on my own to fix this problem, but its now beyond my expertise! I took it to another friend of mine, who works with computers everyday for a living and he couldn't get it to quit freezing up either! So, it has to be something really serious with it! I figure that its either the power box or the motherboard? What do you folks think is wrong with my computer freezing up? I would be glad to hear from anyone who has an idea of what they think is wrong with it. Thank you.
 

Answer:Computer Randomly Freezing up on me.

hi, its either the power box or the motherboard .!
your friend who works on computers all day ,did he test to see if it was overheating by touching things inside the box [as we cant not sitting in front of the box] did he change the ram to see if it might be the cause, or the CPU ,sorry I cant offer much else, as so many things cause a computer to freeze

It happens from anywhere between once/twice per day to a couple times per hour.

This problem is fairly new and has only been happening for about 2 weeks.

I have tried defragging and running chkdsk. Neither of which seemed to help. I didn't install any new hard or software before the problems began. Also if it is makes a difference my Windows take a long time to start up, about 5 min and my IE also doesn't work, it'll open it just wont do anything.

I don't know what to do but the problem came from out of no where yesterday. Everything was working fine and then all of a sudden, a freezeup came and it was frozen to the point that I couldn't even ctrl + alt + del to go to task manager. Since then the PC has been freezing randomly out of no where and has been making a loud beeping noise along with it. This morning, I tried to restore the computer to a previous point but I had difficulty. After that, I took some advice and did a disk cleanup and tried system restore but when I went back into system restore I was stuck on today and couldn't go back to any other previous restart point. I do not know what to do? What is the cause of my pc freezing up out of no where? What is the root of this problem! Please help me! All help would be appreciated!

System will freeze up randomly. I've done my best to remove startup items and non-MS services, but that hasn't helped. SAFE mode no issue, but normal mode, it will even sometimes freeze at about the point profile is loaded. I created a 2nd profile and so far so good, but I still suspect I may have malware or virus.

Bitdefender is running. Can someone kindly review my HJT log?

For a while now my computer has been freezing seemingly at random and I am at a loss as to what to do at this point after trying various things.  
 
Originally I was having some bsod problems back in about June which eventually led to a windows corruption which couldn't be fixed so I got a new hard drive and installed windows 10 onto the new drive.  I also put the old drive inside the computer so I could access files if I needed them.  Things were going find for a while then I started to play skyrim back in between September and October.  Skyrim would work fine sometimes   other times it would just completely restart the computer or freeze up causing a jittering of the sound.  After searching around it seemed others had the same issue with skyrim at times.  I updated my video card which helped a little but I eventually stopped playing that since I finished what I wanted to do in it anyway.
 
After that I had about a month or so of the computer running fine maybe 1 bsod during that time at random.    Anyway then came the new windows 10 creative update that happened in December .   Since then it has been freezing quite often at random.   Doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing.   But more often than not the freeze happens within the first half hour.  If it doesn't happen in that first half hour the chance of it freezing seems to drop drastically and will more often than not work fine for hours and hours an...

When this happens i cannot move the mouse and if I'm listening to music it stops.To turn off/restart the computer i have to turn it off by the mains , the power button doesn't turn it off when i hold it ( it does for other issues just not this one) and also the power switch at the back of the tower will not turn it off. It has been doing this for a few weeks now. The computer is custom built and has been running fine for over a year. Also i have ran tests on Spybot,Avast antivirus and also done some cleaning using AVG PC tuneup.If anybody can help with this i would be very grateful as I'm starting my distance learning course at Uni in September and can't rely on my computer to study if it keeps acting up.
