In my expirence this problem is almost always one of 2 things
1. Your ram needs to be replaced - try and take out one chip at a time play with it for a bit and see if it freezes

2. Your hard drive is failing - If this is the case you will hear above normal noises from your drive like excessive cracking and clanking. If this is the case back up your data as fast as possible, and pick up a new drive.

I think computer crash in this reasons computer might turn to hibernate mode or screen saver is activated.

It takes @least 30 minutes to boot

It sounds like your computer is not recognising the hard drive. Go into the bios (keep pressing the delete key as your computer starts up ) and find 'hard drive auto select' and press enter to see if your computer can recognise the hard drive. Even if this works it sounds like your hard drive is on the way out.
1/ Make sure no floppy or CD in drives
2/ Check Hard Drive cable connections, both ends
3/ Go into BIOS and check drive is recognised in there

Phone log jumps to older time on mailbox and freezes up

The short term solution is to do a soft-reset on the phone by removing the battery, reinserting it, then powering on the phone.

The Pearl has known memory issues since it has less internal memory due to its size. When it begins to run low on memory the phone acts crazy, and it can even begin deleting information. Performing the soft-reset will let the phone realize it does have free space to use, but this is really only a temporary fix.

In the long term you've got a few things yous hould do:
- Invest in a MicroSD memory card. Then you can have a lot of your stuff stored on the card thereby freeing up the phone's memory.
- Delete any applications you aren't using or don't need. This is done through Options > Advanced Options > Applications. Highlight the program you want to remove, press the menu button and choose to delete.
- If the phone has the Facebook applicate then it is STRONGLY recommended you remove it. It is constantly trying to connect to the Facebook service, which uses a lot of memory and decreases the phone's performance.
- Go to Blackberry's website and run any software updates available for the Pearl (there are a few!) but make sure to back up your information first!

If all else fails, back up your information to your computer and perform a hard-reset. IMPORTANT - A hard-reset will erase ALL information on the phone so it is VERY important to back up your information!! Once you've backed everything up, you can perform the hard-reset by going to Options > Security > General Settings, then press the menu button and select the Wipe Handheld option.

Compaq e500 boot up problem

If it were my laptop here is what I would do: 1. Install a new hard drive. 2. Install the operating system. 3. After an anti-virus program was installed and updated, I would connect the old hard drive to the laptop using one of those external USB hard drive adapter cables. 4. If the old drive proves to be readable, copy documents/photos/bookmarks to the new hard drive. Hope this helps.

Dvr-106d -Windows freezes,cant read new Dvds

if you have had two drives with the same problem i would check the ide cable and swap to another one if you have a master and slave twin connector ide cable, or even try the dvd rom on the same ide cable as the hard drive as you know that that ide connector and cable is working, unless you have a SATA hard drive in which case you won't be able to; but will still have a spare ide channel connector to try the drive on.
