Dell 8100 dimension keeps freezing

I need more than that to tell you how to troubleshoot the problem you're having. Most freezing or locking up is caused by a program not functioning properly. Start your computer in safe mode. Go to your start button, type in the search RUN right click and run as Administrator, then when the box opens type in MSCONFIG and click run/yes/okay (which ever you see). This will bring up a new window. On the main tab you'll see three options. Normal start up, Safe Mode, and Selective Startup/Custom Startup. Click safe mode hit okay and it will restart the computer into Safe Mode. This will prevent all startup programs and services from starting. Let the computer run and if it still freezes then you know it's a hardware issue. If it doesn't, it's a program error. Take the time then to diagnose either the hardware or the software. If it's the hardware, check to make sure that everything is seated correctly, that the ram is firmly and fully in their sockets. Make sure your hard drives are connected correctly. Check the power supply make sure it isn't dying and causing you too lose power.

Look at the motherboard and check for heat damage, blown resistors and other components.

If it's software, go back into MSconfig, go into selective start up and choose one or two programs at a time and restart the computer until it freezes. If you get it to freeze with a specific program you know it's the culprit.

Also, freezing tends to be related to bad configurations. I dont' know if you've been trying to overclock the processor, the ram, or the video card (onboard or dedicated) could also cause these issues. Check your bios and make sure your settings are correct. Stop using any overclocking software.

Lastly check temperature. The normal operating temperature of a desktop PC is 130 degrees F with some of the more powerful processors and video cars. 90 degrees F while not under load. If your temperature is getting too hot it could be crashing. This could indicate a bad processor, a heatsink that isn't seated or in contact with the processor anymore, malfunctioning fans, poor circulation, or even dust/grime/dirt getting into the computer.

You could be experiencing this GUI lag or freezing if you have background processes that are taking priority over it while they run drawing more of the computers resources. Let it sit for a little big and see if it corrects itself.

Lastly, if you're getting blue screens of death because of windows, get the logs for them and post them so we can go over them and see if anything else is happening.

Keeps freezing. Multiple times in minutes

You may have a virus or malware.
It's also possible you have a driver conflict.
For the virus situation this will help. You will need a clean pc to download the files, then boot your problem pc in safe mode to tranfer teh files. Power on, tap F8 key till you get windows boot options. Choose safe mode.
My favorite solution for one time use is this.. Use a clean PC to download if possible.
This tool is designed to run under Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/VISTA/7 32-bit.

For Virus and Malware use Trend Micro Standalone AV and malware remover. Read about it here..

Download the Sysclean module.

Unzip all contents into a folder.

Download and unzip into same folder, the latest versions of the AV pattern files:
" lpt$vpn.XXX " in ZIP format as lptXXX.ZIP from the following location:

Download and unzip the latest Spyware pattern file..

into the same folder with other files..

Copy folder and all contents onto infected PC in Safe Mode. and run the module.. (double click it)

Choose to remove threats, all drives.. Let it run till complete.

Cross fingers.. all will be clear.

If this does not resolve the problem, re-post back her for more help.

PC wont boot with fast POST anymore

Hi findads,

I'm sorry to hear of your problem. The good news is that I don't think that VISTA Ultimate is responsible for the problem, as at the POST time the OS has not yet launched; the MB is still in control.

My suspicion would be that something else might have changed at the same time. For example, did you change any hardware when you upgraded? I'd also guess that the best chance for solving the problem would be to flash the board's BIOS to its latest version, and to make sure that no other BIOS settings have changed that could be causing the problem.

I hope this information is helpful. If you think it appropriate, I'd appreciate a Fix Ya rating on this solution. Good luck!
