Re: freezing up

A few things to try. Check the event logs on your PC for Hard drive errors. If the lockups are random they could be caused by bad blocks on your drive in a paging or system file. If you see disk errors, replace the drive immediately and make sure to keep proper backups. Next, update all drivers, especially the video driver. Often lockups will be caused by Video driver corruption. Dont be scared to install beta versions of drivers for your laptop in an attempt to resolve the problem. Next, search out a utility boot CD from the internet. There are several, usually running linux but most contain a memory test utility that you want to run for a long period of time (several hours) to see if after a stress period you start getting memory errors. Next, search for speedfan on google and install it to monitor the temperature on your processor, this problem could be caused by dust buildup on the processor heat sync or cooling fan. Generally it would take some time to have this problem lock up the system, however, after the first lock up and reboot subsequent lockups would happen more quickly. Many laptop repair depots will do a service for under $100 where they will dissassemble the machine, clean the heat sink and fan (or replace it) and apply new thermal grease.

Problem to play candy crush on tablet toshiba AT100

This has nothing to do with the game, but with the tablet. This a very resource intensive game, and if your tablet does not have a fast enough processor or ram, it will keep freezing.

My Compaq tablet keeps freezing at random intervals and won't even power off for quite awhile. Any suggestions?

I'd take it apart & clean the cpu heatsink & fan & also make sure the fan works. Then if that's not it,check the hard drive.

Keeps freezing after loading windows xp, won't allow me to use any apps or open anything

if you cant afford to get it repaired, then check the processor, hdd, ram slots to ensure that they are all in their fixed possitions,

the problem may be that a module of ram has come loose or your processor has, if they haven't then get yourself a digital multimeter and learn about computer electronics,, although buying a new computer maybe the quickest option.....
