Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

Pc keeps freezing


Computer freezing problem can be a temporary one, but if a computer freezes regularly when multi-tasking, there's some major issue occurring in your system. When you face such a situation, you need to take necessary steps as soon as possible to fix it:-

- Disinfect your system using some reliable antivirus program.
- Run disk clean up (start > programs > accessories > system tools > disk cleanup.)
- Disable background services.
- Fix OS registry errors with any reliable program (must use Reginout for it.)
- Defragment the registry if needed.

Thanks :-)

Freezing


A computer/notebook/laptop can freeze due to a lot of reasons. Here are few noteworthy ones. Check them and see if they help, if not then post a little detail of when it freezes more etc:

a) Antivirus programs have a great tendency of eating up memory quite quickly. So, get a lightweight antivirus program like Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast etc.

b) If you have a low RAM then it is recommended that you run very few applications at the background. Avoid running any unnecessary applications.

c) If you have a desktop set with lots of transitions and effects it can cause huge RAM and often results in freezing of system.

d) Your O/S could be a problem too. If the above things doesn't help try resetting/re-installing the O/S and hopefully it shall help you a lot.

e) Check your system for any viral activities. You can perform an online scan using many free online scanners like Trend Micro etc.

My acer aspire 5740 with windows 7,freezes everytime i connect to the internet.pls help asap.


If your computer or laptop freezes on a regular basis, chances are it has acquired a virus or a series of viruses.

Press "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" when your computer is frozen. This will launch a Windows Security window.

Hit "Shut Down..click on the "up" arrow beside a red button located at the bottom-right corner of your screen. Select "Restart." Wait until Windows finishes the rebooting process.

Launch your web browser and install an antivirus program. AVG, Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky are all reputable makers of antivirus software and downloads

Restart your system after you have finished installing the antivirus program.

Launch the program and run a complete virus scan. Wait until your antivirus program completes the task and detects the virus infection. Follow its prompts to remove the virus.

Run virus scans at least twice a week. This will prevent your computer from getting another virus that causes problems such as the screen freezing.

My Asus m51 keeps freezing. when using internet or office media player ect can you help?


System freeze may be due to overheating or Apllication failure or virus or worm infection.

Open the notebook and get it clean with an Air Blower.

Scan your PC with a good Antivirus like kaspersky Internet security 2010,A-Squared Anti-Malware with their lastest definiton updates install.

Type "msconfig" in the "Run" prompt.
Click "startup" tab
Untick all the programs that run during system startup except Antivirus program.

 Clean your PC with any system Cleaner software.

This will most probably solve the problem.

Use Mozilla Firefox or Opera for web browsing, they are more secure than Internet explorer.

Use VLC Player for all media play as it takes little system resource while running.
