SOURCE: Computer freezes on start-up

whenever your doing a cd recovery you need to remove the battery
use ac power

SOURCE: IBM R30's CMOS Battery Replaced but still trouble

probably itz either minor case of software corruption/improper ground/cpu fan..
or major case of faulty or defective main board/ram/addon/daughter cards..

..plz do check the following as in order:..
the Hardware part:..
1)a) in power-on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..
b) in case of laptop try to get output from external display unit/monitor using vga port..if there's proper display in there..the problem is probably with either the 'lcd' or 'ccfl' or 'inverter circuit'..

2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..

3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

4) see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..

5) a) see if ur hdd is noisy or emitting any 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..
b) or if the system is not supporting either the newly installed device or itz software/driver /firmware
if so, u need either a fresh os installation or ur hdd is likely to b replaced..

6) remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase in heat..

7) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

8) on main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..

9) [in case of desktop] the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg& grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic',or pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective protector-transformer/resistance (esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..

plz give higher priority to step 8 & 9..

the Software part:..
1) hv a licensed and UPDATED antivirus installed (i prefer avg/kaspersky,remember, without updation a full version antivirus is useless)..

2) download, install n run microsoft kb890830..http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=AD724AE0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en..

3) download n run Startup Control Panel..http://download.cnet.com/Startup-Control-Panel/3000-2094_4-10039330.html..'remove all the unnecessary startup items from here..(if u can't find what to remove, post me/us in ur comment with all the items listed in each n every tabs herein)..

4) remove all unnecessary software from add/remove programs..

5) download, install n run 'Advanced System Care Pro'..http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Pro/3000-2086_4-10399324.html..

6) disable the following:..
a) 'Automatically Restart' right click on my computer->properties->advanced->startup n recovery->(un check on the) Automatically Restart;
b) 'Error Reporting' right click on my computer->properties->advanced->error reporting->disable error reporting->(uncheck on the) 'but notifyme when critical error occur'..

7) Increase the size of Virtual Memory, Initial: 1440; Maximum: 2880

if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....

SOURCE: Toshiba NB205 keeps freezing

the freezing has nothing to do with the settings ....after you upgrade Ram memory always reinstall the operating system ...to make all the things go smooth ...after you will reinstall you will see the difference ....anyway ...first go to bios and pres f9 to get it to the factory defaults ....than move all the files you want to save in another partition from the C drive ...and after that reinstall the OS and format C partition in NTFS normal (slow way) ...make sure you have the drivers for it first ..either stored on the D drive ...or on a disk or memory device...

My celeron 2.8 ghz 448mb ram is too slow, why?


Not enough memory.

Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Freeze at startup


Hello
If you have an Nvidia or ATI graphics card then they are probably the problem and can only be replaced by replacing the motherboard.
Apart from that this seems to be a motherboard problem ,have you tried with only the battery and vice verca.

Good luck

Error 0X0000007A (0XC07C1AB0, 0XC000000E, 0XF8356642, 0X0A1F0860) When i switch on my PC i get this blue screen error report. i don't know what this error is. please give me the recovery suggestion. Thanks...


How To Fix This Error

Error Message:
Stop Error 0x0000007A (Kernel data inpage error) Translation:
This occurs due to a memory error from a faulty hardware device or virus. Solution:
If your system freezes during Operating System installation, make a note where the installation stopped. Often, you can narrow down your problem by knowing when the freeze occurs.

Frequently, installation freezes are caused by incorrect settings in the CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor). The CMOS stores special configuration settings for your computer’s hardware and is used by the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) when your machine boots. Your motherboard or system should have come with a manual that describes the CMOS settings. If you don’t have a manual, download one from your manufacturer’s Web page. To change the CMOS settings, press the keys as shown in your manual or on your PC’s startup screen (often DELETE, ESC, CTRL-ESC, or CTRL-ALT-ESC) immediately after you boot your computer. If you change any of the CMOS settings, write down your changes and keep them in a safe place. Then you can refer to the settings if you need to change them back or redo them if you reinstall or upgrade to a new version of Windows later on.

Incorrect CMOS settings for system cache memory and RAM may confuse the Windows installer and freeze the system. If your system freezes during setup, try disabling the system cache memory. If you are able to install the system after your CMOS changes, then you fixed the problem. If this doesn’t work, then try adding a wait state to (or slowing down the timing on) your RAM. (Wait states are periods where the CPU pauses while waiting for data from slower components.) Adding a wait state causes the computer to address the memory less quickly and often fixes unexpected freezing problems, black screens, or unprovoked reboots. After Windows is fully installed, use the new system for a while to make sure it is stable. Then, restart the system and change the CMOS settings back. If the system remains stable, keep the settings; otherwise return to the stable settings permanently.

Bad RAM chips or a boot sector virus can cause inexplicable freezes during installation. If you suspect your memory might be the trouble and you have extra RAM chips around, try the installation with the other chips instead. If you think you have a boot sector virus on your hard drive, then use a bootable CD-ROM or diskette to check and clean your hard drive using programs such as Norton AntiVirus (http://www.symantec.com) or McAfee VirusScan (http://www.mcafee.com).

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.
freezing ?
If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok
any freezing.
If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.
if you have 2 sticks of memory remove on and or /reseat them
boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory.
report back
