Hi, I need help, my pc freezes and I cant move the mouse or do anything else, I have to restart it. Please Help me.


Start/Run... Run msconfig. On General tab, select Diagnostic Startup. Reboot. Use the computer in this state for as long as the freeze usually appears.
If no freeze, return to msconfig General tab. Selective startup, uncheck Startup.
Repeat reboot and trial usage. If no freeze, check normal startup. On startup tab uncheck everything that looks non-essential. Reboot and retest. When the computer seems "fixed" recheck one startup item at a time. Repeat your timed test until the issue reappears. When it does, the latest startup item you enabled is the cause.

How to reset bios?


Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

this will set the boot order

hope this helps

if this fails you might try some of these



Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

System freezes on boot up


hi there,

did your system to press F1 to continue. not try to go on BIOS setup. on booting process press F2 or Delete tab. and then click on safe mode if the booting will continue to run. come up a confirmation if you continue in safe mode click yes. and then work on that system for a couple of minutes, and then restart you pc.

you have too many start up programs. that why it will freeze during start up.

Windows won't load or instal


Freezing of computers occur mostly due to shortage of RAM. But in ur case, 1GB is quite enough for XP. Since ur computer is freezing b4 even starting up, thus it could be a problem of disk drives.check if more than 1 drive have been alloted MASTER (Primary) or otherwise same priority. If u have more than 1 HDD, then the one in which the Opering System is installed should be given the Master Primary and the other as Cable select/slave. Likewise do it for the CD/DVD ROM or RAM (the CD/DVD RAM should be alloted the master and ROM as the slave). It can be done by the JUMPERs on the back of the Drives. See the exact setup on the drive surface.

Cannot reboot computer it will freeze everytime at the finnalizing stage.


Most computers set Harddisk as the default boot option. Go to BIOS setup(press del during startup) and go to boot options and changed it from there. It is either found on advanced setup or it has a menu of its own, depending on the BIOS chip.

Computer freezes when trying to detect S-Ata drive


Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.

Major help needed


hi jtiker,

if you have replaced all the parts mentioned above then you will need to reinstall windows as it will try to use drivers from the old windows and create more problems for you.

go to the bios and set it to boot from the dvdrom first then reinstall windows.

your only other choice is to boot in safe mode and try to reinstall the mobo drivers....not recommended though

good luck

Freezes @ Mobo Splash Screen


you have i would say a corrupt bios, if it can't even select the splash screen, i'm assuming that you have tried to reset the cmos by means of the relevant jumpers, either JBAT1, CLRCMOS or CLRCLK or similair. If so and still nothing, when you built the system you may have stressed the board fitting the heatsink and fan or the memory causing the mobo bios chip to fault or it is simply a manufacturer fault and therefore up for exchange of faulty goods.
