PC keeps freezing

Hi i've had my computer for about two years now and within a couple months of buying it it started freezing everytime i ran a game. it then started freezing on startup and even while my pc was on idle. often it would freeze just as i enter windows. i removed everything including my processor and put it back together again and it seemed as though everytime i changed my hardware it freezes. i tried new RAM new HDD new Graphics card and new Processor. i have a foxconn p4m800p7mb a 1Gig ddr2 P4 3.05ghz Processor and an ATI RADEON 9550 256ddr2 graphics card. ive even tried formatting!! its really an annoying problem. hope you can help
Thanks

    my chipset graphics card and other drivers are completly up to date because i check regularly.

This is the link for directx 9c



try here, I also recommend downloading driver detective to scan your computer for drivers that are out of date or need updating. The program will do this for free but will ask you to pay if you want the program to install the drivers for you. If you can not do this then write down all of the drivers that you need and google for them.

I hope this helps

What version of windows are you running? You need to make sure that your direct x is up to date and is the latest one out for your version windows.

Hp pavilion dv4 2045dx keeps freezing and shutting down


It seems that you have a virus and it is running at boot.
first try to boot in safe mode and see if the computer stay up.
"Restart... hold the f8 key down until you see the boot option menu and select: "Safe Mode with Networking"If your pc still shut off and freezes then is not a virus and it is a hardware issue, possibly power issue or heating issue with the CPU.If it is ok in safe mode, then you need to remove the virus in safe mode. Download antivirus program that support safe mode operation.after successful removal of the viruses, reboot in normal mode and edit your msconfig, to remove any running programs that might be viruses.
If you continue to have a problem, I can log gin to your PC and fix it myself, just download teamviewer and contact meTony

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

Why won't u send it back to Best Buy to do the right job? Are they going to charge u again? Is the job under warranty? You will have to get someone to go inside the computer to do the right repair if not yourself!!

Ps3 freeze


Hi,
look on Sonys website for patches et,c.
Sometimes they launch games, and realise that theres glitches.
they then create patch-files which you can usually download, to update your console.
if this does,nt work. then you,ve possibly got a faulty game.
Exchange It.
