You may have a problem with an overheating processor or another component on your motherboard (chipset getting to hot or faulty).
memory could be another reason..
Try to blow out any dust from the inside of your computer..and test
also make sure the vents are not blocked.
if the computer is still within warranty DO NOT OPEN the computer and take it the an authorized dlr. if you open the computer and is within warranty you may void your warranty.
if the warranty expired and the computer is old. get a can of compressed air, and without touching any component and watching for ESD undust your computer.
post back if after attempting this solution and I'l give you other things to try.

Usually caused by overheating. Check your CPU cooling fan or power supply fan.

Possibly a compatibility problem with software. Check your task manager for for new or unknown processes, and check your startup processes for such issues. Also scan your machine with an anti-virus and malware scanner.

Hope this helps, careful what you download, and always scan before opening.

I have a GT5662 and it has a problem everytime i install an os or it boots it will freeze when fully booted or a few minutes into it. I don't know what's wrong. I need help


SOunds like an overheating issue or the power supply isnt sufficient. Have you done any upgrades to it lately?
Try dusting out the case and adding an extra fan or two if your computer case can oblige.

Everytime I turn my computer on it will freeze


You have a corrupted registry, try rebooting and depressing the F8 key to access safe mode..you will see a black and white screen with boot choices.

Choose "best last boot config" reboot and hope for the best.

If still no go reload windows with the disk and choose option "Reload windows WITHOUT FORMAT". It will replace windows and retain all you saved files. HOWEVER, you will need to reload all other programs, eg Office suite, games etc

You can start by uninstalling the program you installed before this started happening. You can also do system restore which you'll find in start>accessories>system tools.
If nogo, try disconnecting devices on the back of the computer except the keyboard, mouse, monitor and power. Turn the computer on without them. If the issue disappeared, reconnect what you unplugged one at a time until you find the culprit.
