I never had a computer freeze up from having too much software on it. Software is simply stored on the hard drive. You might have problems with having too many problems running in the background. This eats up your system resources. Go to start, run, type in msconfig, press enter and click on the startup tab. Uncheck everything you don't NEED to have running in the background. If you aren't sure what something is, don't mess with it. Also, you could have temperature issues. Make sure your fans & vents are clean.
Cleaning the registry will probably make a large difference.

It could be a number of things:

1. The registry - you could download something like CCleaner (freeware) and run this to fix it
2. A virus - I assume you have an anti virus/firewall installed on your PC? If not then try one of the free ones like AVG.
3. Hard drive needs defragging - From Start Menu go to All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter then from there run Analyze on the hard drive(s). It will then tell you whether it needs defragging or not. If so, then run it. This shouldn't take too long, but be patient!
4. Too much software on the PC. Advise on cleaning out and uninstalling anything you aren't using.

I would doubt it's anythiing to do with the mouse or keyboard. Are they wireless or wired?

Try the things I've suggested and let me know how you get on.

1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

I have a dell inspiron 531s. it is freezing off and on. it would work well for a day then it would just freeze, not responding to the mouse or keyboard. i have reformated the hard drive change the memory...


I had the same issue. I upgraded to Windows 7 and things did work allot better but the hanging still occured. I ran system mechanic and found there was a drive problem. This was repared by the program.
The problem occured again last night and the system will not boot past the dell splash screen. I am thinking it might be the motherboard that is a fault. Mine is out of its 12 month warranty, so no way to get Dell to investigate further. Also check the systems logs after the hang happens and see if there was something logged that caused the hang.

I hope this helps?

Lannon

It is most likely a piece of software or your hard drive that is causing the issue. Any easy way to tell would be to go into "safe mode" and see if you still have the same issue: reboot the PC and when it starts/beeps start pushing/tapping F8 until you get a menu with an option for safe mode. Once that comes up see if you can get it to freeze again. If it does not freeze the likely culprit is a piece of software, if still freezes the likely cause is hardware related and I would look at either a good hard drive utility to try and repair the issue or simply replacing your hard drive.

Freezes up


this could be caused by a number of things for you to check. maintanence is a key to keeping your computer running. keep your antivirus, antispyware up to date. keep your pc from overheating by taking a spray can of air to it (mind static electricity; after you unplug all wires from the pc and take the case off, touch the powersupply for 10 seconds to balance your electricity with the pc's so you don't fry anything.) hope this helps.

Hp s3120n slim line freezing up


Sounds like a video issue. What OS is on the machine? Try updating the video card drivers. If the OS is Windows 2000 or older, update your version of DirectX as well.
If that doesnt work, check system resources. Low memory, and low hard drive space can be a cause.
If all else fails, replace the mouse. Mice are very inexpensive now. Keep us posted.

When the computer freezes is it just the mouse that freezes?  Can you navigate using the keyboard?  I would recommend running memtest 86, and prime 95, just to check your memory and processor respectively.  How frequent is the freezing?  Have you tried stopping a few of your larger processes?  Have you installed anything new recently?  Also I would try reseating your memory, and maybe having your power supply checked.  Doing these things will help limit it down some.
