Question about Computers & Internet

Windows vista freezes

I would just be surfing the internet, talking on MSN and/or listening to music, when my laptop just freezes. The mouse doesn't move, CTRL+ALT+DELETE doesn't work, so i can't open the task manager. If i have no music playing, i cant really tell because when the music is playing, it freezes into a loop. So the only way i stop it is by taking out the battery, it's happened quite a lot, then when i restart, it asks how i want to start Windows, i just say ''normally''.
I thought it would stop once I got Service Pack 1, but it didn't, although it hasn't happened quite as much... :/

Can anyone help?

    I have 2.00GB.
    It just happens like that, not at specific times and i never really have billions of applications open at the times it does happen.

My laptop turns on then freezes how do i fix this?


The music you have on your computer should have no bearing on your start up problem, this is more likely to be caused by a different area of the system such as a recently installed device or program.

Have your tried starting your computer in Safe Mode - press the F8 function key during the initial boot display and before Windows starts to load.

Further recovery actions will depend on which version of Windows you have installed (XP, Vista or 7).

If you can get into System Restore then you should try restoring the system settings back to a time before this problem started if possible.

If you can't use System Restore but can start in Safe Mode, then download a copy of CCleaner and use this to perform some house-keeping clean-up to get rid of temporary files, clean up registry entries etc as this may help.

If you can't start in Safe Mode then you will need to have access to your Windows installation media (CD or DVD depending on which version of Windows). For Vista and 7 you can try performing a Startup Repair - for XP you may have to do a Repair Install.

Do have an issue with your audio? Can you play music without any problems? If you are only having problem with skype/msn then you just need a faster internet connection.

My built-in webcam on Windows Vista is very slow.


Tipically, video streaming over the internet is slower then when you are not connected to the internet, i.e, quickplay. There are many factors to considers such as your internet speed and the other person's speed. It is normal to see lagging when you are having video conferencing with other people, it also freezes momentarily, but, video should go back to normal after awhile, then, freezes again. Also, it depends on the other person's internet speed.

Best luck

I keep getting an internet exploerer error and my laptop freezes


Did you try to install the new version of internet explorer? Try version 7. If you really can't surf the internet you must find a way to download or order internet explorer and uninstal it of your laptop. If this don't work you may have a virus. Try to instal your version of windows or another os again.
