Computer Suddenly freezes

M computer suddenly freezes in the middle of usage. The only thing I could do is to restart the PC. When the PC freezes at the same time I am playing music, the speaker will sound like this, "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"I already tried some of the solutions I found on the net, like cleaning the inside of the CPU of dust, etc. etc. I already reinstalled my OS (XP by the way), and updated my drivers (Graphics, Sound, Lan). These were not solutions after all.

What other things could I do to stop this immature freezing of my computer? It really bugs me off when I am doing something Important in my PC like assignments and projects. A hard reboot is the only way I could do. I want to try other things to prevent this from happening again. It is really a pain in the @#!

Please help me. I have a 14 month old Pentium D 3.0GHz, 1GB ram (2x 512 Jetram DDR2), 256MB video memory (nVidia 7200 GS), 80GB HDD, ECS P4M890T motherboard, 2 optical DVD drives,and a 550 watt PSU.

By the way, m PC has no brand because it is assembled in a shop.

Thank you

Why has my windows vista home premium system suddenly stopped the sound coming through when I want to play music from napster site through my pc? I have the pc connected to 2 speakerS.


this could be an issue with driver or service failure in the computer..

try restarting the computer in safe mode .. and see if the internal speakers work.. try running a driver update through device manger.. check the cables of course.

if that does not help .. then call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help

Freezes and no display


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty

if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.

There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.

Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.


Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots, lightly rub alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r


Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.


If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

Check the vga lead for secure dust free connection or try another vga lead.
also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is totally free to use

I am just using my computer and suddenly the mouse just freezes and doesnt unfreeze unless i log off or restart


hi,

The issue was possibly related to virus issue, not only the mouse freezes, the delay in keystroke and the application access also will be slow.

scan the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 if your operating systems is XP, with good antivirus.

Hello

This sound to me like an overheating problem, you will need to have a look at the fans regulating the motherboard and cpu cooling.

If there is no dust particles or obstructions on the fans itself, you need to have a look if the fans even spins up.

If you do not fix this problem, it might result in your motherboard blowing.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

My computer CPU suddenly blacked out without any notice but the led light still showing the accessibility of it. as a result i have to restart the computer again and again.


You can hit F8 when the computer restart, and tell the computer to boot to safe mode only. If you have another computer download ccleaner and save on a usb stick, then after the other computer re-boots run the program. There should be a registry fix button on that program and that should fix your problem. Some how your regestry got corrupted, and this program will fix it.

Computer goes off


Either something is wrong with the computers hardware (memory, harddrive etc.) or something is wrong with your configuration.

There could be a conflict between different drivers, there could be a virus. The reason for the problem can be limitless.

Windows XP executes an automatic restart in the event of a system failure and I this is most likely the case with your problem.

For further help with this, please follow the guide [here] and do a new post with the error code.

When I connect my JVC Camcorder to the computer it stays connected for a few seconds and then disappears suddenly.. It is connected through a Firewire connection. All this began after installing SP3


You can uninstall SP3 and see if its working. In case its working and you also want to install SP3 then first uninstall the software of your camcorder from the computer. Install SP3. restart your computer and then reinstall the software for your camcorder

My 9 month old computer suddenly freezes up and must be rebooted


Possible cause may be of either of these two insufficent memory or program malfunction.

First, check the space available on RAM on your sistem. The minimum RAM for a Vista PC is 512 but if you have 512 and is running slow you should upgrade to 1G.

Secondly, your hard disc may be getting full and it may also be the cause of the freezing. You may need to get a backup drive and save most of the file into the external drive or get a bigger hard drive for the system.

Thirdly, program malfunction. It may also be the cause.... Note the which program you are using and with that you can get the right program to uninstall. Or you can simply uninstall all the programs on the OS then reinstall them again..

You simply decide to reinstall a fresh Windows Vista or just repair Windows Vista with the Installation Disc.

Goodluck.
