SOURCE: My computer keeps freezing randomly and I don't

First I would try a different operating system to rule out Windows 7 as it is still fairly new and could cause issues. You can download e.g. ubuntu linux live cd and run it off the cd to see if your system still freezes. If it does then indeed you might have a hardware problem. Live CD usually contains memory test programs, you could try running that to check the RAM.
Have a look in the BIOS-it might be worth resetting the settings to default/failsafe settings.
If you still can't find any issues I would suggest opening the PC and checking for obvious overheating. Make sure all fans are spinning (check the one on the video card too) and remove any dust if necessary.
If all is in order, try swapping the video card (or removing it in case you have onboard one).
I hope you sort it out, it sounds like a nice system :)
Good luck,
Raf

Now to get to safe mode, is a couple different ways depending on your OS.

For Windows 7
  • During boot up, press F8 before the windows splash screen, this should give you the option to boot up into safe mode.
For Windows 8
  • Open up the charms bar
  • Click Settings
  • Hold Shift before pressing the power icon
  • While still holding shift, click the power icon
  • Keep holding shift, and click restart
  • You may release shift
After restarting Windows 8
  • Once the PC boots, you'll see a screen that says "Choose an Option"
  • Click "Troubleshoot"
  • Click "Advanced Options"
  • Click "Windows Startup Settings"
  • The computer will restart
  • When the computer turns back on, you'll have the option to boot into safe mode.

Tip

Speeding Up Your Computer (Windows XP)


Note: these instructions are for Windows XP, however the procedure is very similar for both Vista and 7.

1. Limit the number of programs booting with your computer.
To do this click on the "Start" button, then choose "Run..." Type in msconfig then press enter. A new window will open called the "System Configuration Utility". Click on the "Startup" tab.
All of the programs that have a check in their box are set to boot with your computer. If you recognize any (like AIM or any other messengers) you should uncheck these boxes if you are okay not having them boot when your computer does. This will make the boot of your computer much faster. When you are done click "Okay" and then choose "Exit without restart". The next time you reboot your computer these settings will be applied.

2. Uninstall unnecessary programs.
Click on the "Start" button and then open the control panel. Open the "Add or Remove Programs" tool. Locate each of the programs you do not use, and choose uninstall. Some things you can uninstall are toolbars and games. If you no longer use them, and you still have the CD for the game then remove the program before you keep it. Keep in mind that you can remove programs while still keeping your personal files for most games, this is a good move if you want to reinstall the game eventually.

3. Download and install Windows Updates.
Click on the "Start" button and find the "Windows Update" option under programs. Choose express install and download and install all of the updates recommended for your computer. You will likely have to restart your computer at the end of this process. When your computer has restarted, repeat this update process. Repeat until there are no longer any updates recommended for your computer (this may take three or even four update cycles).

4. Increasing your Hard Drive's efficiency.
Open up "My Computer" and then right-click on "Local Disk C:" and choose "Properties". Choose the "Tools" tab. You are going to run both the Defragmenter as well as Check disk utilities from this same spot.
  • Check Disk
    Click on the "Check Now..." button to initiate the check disk. Check both of the boxes here and run the check disk with these options, you will need to restart in order to finish this operation.
    d735a9e.jpg
  • Defragment
    Go back into the Local Disk tools and click on the button "Defragment Now..." First choose the analyze button to determine if you need to defragment your drive or not, if it is recommended run a defragment. This whole process of optimizing your hard drive may take quite a while (just let each process run overnight).
    4009dce.jpg

5. Adding additional RAM (if necessary).
If your computer is still running slowly you need to add additional RAM to your computer. You need to find out what kind of RAM your computer requires (DDR, DDR2, DDR3...) and you can easily install it yourself. You should always buy RAM online as it is far less expensive online than it is in stores like Best Buy.

Maintenance
In order to keep the speed of your computer up, you need to regularly run full-computer antivirus scans with frequently updated software. Viruses, malware, and general junkware have a habit of slowing down your computer. Try installing free antivirus software following this tip:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5317428-actually_free_antivirus_software_windows
Also be sure to regularly run the disk defragmenter (every six months), check disk (once a year) and install windows updates (once a month).

Your computer will now run much faster and will increase its life span significantly.

I let the HP asst. Install a bios update and the install is stuck at 40%. What can I do to get out of the update?


Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.

This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.


Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.


If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."


If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."

This will open the System Configuration Utility.


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.

A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.

Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.


If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.

Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally


hope this helps

On my everex impact pc window was updated , while windows was starting and now i receive the following error message when booting up "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered error. windows...


If I undrestand this correctly, this was a windows update? In some caese after a windows update, a restart is required and during shutdown and restart it configures that update. If the computer is shut down, "unexpectedly" or shut down before update is finished, then the update won't complete. If this is what happened, shut down computer by pressing power button on front of tower. Start system back up using on/off button. When screen comes up with options to start mormally or..., arrow up to "start in safe mode". Wait a couple of minutes and a window will come up "what is safe mode". Scroll down in that window until you see "what is safe mode", highlighted in different color, and click on that. It will take a couple of minutes, and another window will come up where you can scroll down to "start safe mode", click on this. This will take a couple of minutes and a window will come up with a suggested restart time and you will see a box "next". Click on the box. You should see the update in the list of things that come up. Click on the process just prior to the update and click "start or next". This will take a little time and will restart your system. When it comes up, let it think until you see a message "system restore complete", click on ok. Now you can click on start, find control panel and click on to open. In your list find "windows udate". Right click on and open. At the top left of screen you will see "check for updates" and click on that. It should recommend the update you just removed. If it it "important" check box, and install. Restart when update is finished and give it the time to do it's configurations.
If I misunderstood your problem you can let me know at "add a comment" or try reposting. Make sure you clarify between a "windows update" or a "windows upgrade".

Everytime I go to internet explorer a message pops up telling me to come to this web site. an after a while the computer just shuts down


pammie819,

Your computer has a small piece of software that someone else has remotely installed, most likely the software installed itself. It's call a virus, malware, etc. To use a computer online surfing the internet or checking email this day and age, you must pay for and keep paying for a good quality security program or your computer will always have issues like this or similar. Follow the steps below. If these steps do not work and if you needed to ask this question to begin with, will need to take your computer to a computer technician for repair.

1) Backup all of your personal files and only your personal files. Do not backup anything else. You are trying to save your personal items from loss and hopefully whatever is on your computer does not reside within your personal items. If you do not have a external hard drive or flash drive, its time to get one. They are sold everywhere.

2) Go to the following link and install the ccleaner software:
http://www.piriform.com/
It works great and its free!

3) Go to the following link and install Malwarebytes software:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Also great and free!

4) Go to the following link and install Auslogics software:
http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/
Again great and free!

5) Go to the following link and download but do not install Comodo Internet Security:
http://www.comodo.com/home/download/download.php?prod=cis
Free and include the anti-virus and firewall in one-

6) Search online and find out how to start your operating system in its non-networking safe mode.
http://www.wikihow.com/Start-Windows-in-Safe-Mode
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/force-windows-to-boot-into-safe-mode-without-using-the-f8-key/
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316434

7) Disconnect your connection to the internet; unplug the wire, turn off the wireless card, etc.

8) Restart your computer in safe mode.

9) Once in safe mode, do not start any programs and do not look around, do the following:

A-Run ccleaner. It has a computer cleaner and a registry cleaner. Run both cleaners repetitively until they stop finding anything to clean.

B-Run Malwarebytes. Do a full system scan. Delete and/or Quarantine anything it finds. Keep running the full system scans repetitively until it no longer finds anything. This could take a while.

C-Run Auslogics. Select all of your drive and click defrag. Keep running the defrag repetitively on all of the drives until it defrag's each drive in less than a few minutes; if after 5 or 6 time it still takes forever, your drives are just messed up; just continue. This also could take a while.

10) Restart you computer in regular mode. Do not start any programs or look around , do the following:

A-Install Comodo Internet Security. During the install process, restart the computer as need by Comodo.

B-Run a full system scan. Delete and/or Quarantine anything it finds. Keep running the full system scans repetitively until it no longer finds anything. This could take a while.

C-After the last scan, restart the computer.

11) Once in back in regular mode again, run each of the four programs you have just installed and run their update feature. Follow what it says to do except for running any scans.

12) Update your operating system. Search online if you do not know how. This is one of the most important steps of this process. Run the update repetitively until it stops finding anything to update; only update what needs to be updated. If you are not Chinese you do not need to update the Chinese language! Restart your system as the update ask as this is important to do so. After the last update cannot find anything to update, restart your computer.

13) Once in back in regular mode again, do not start any programs and do not look around, do the following (Yes, just do it all again. It will take less time this time around):

A-Run ccleaner. It has a computer cleaner and a registry cleaner. Run both cleaners repetitively until they stop finding anything to clean.

B-Run Malwarebytes. Do a full system scan. Delete and/or Quarantine anything it finds. Keep running the full system scans repetitively until it no longer finds anything. This could take a while.

C-Run Auslogics. Select all of your drive and click defrag. Keep running the defrag repetitively on all of the drives until it defrag's each drive in less than a few minutes; if after 5 or 6 time it still takes forever, your drives are just messed up; just continue. This also could take a while.

14) Restart the computer ahhhhhgain.

15) By know you should notice a difference.
