Computer freezes up
In case your system freezes at system startup, it usually implies that there are way too many programs loading at startup. Therefore, to fix these errors, you will have to stop unnecessary programs from loading during the startup process. To do this, first check the Start > All Programs > Startup folder. If you see any unwanted programs listed here, right-click and select Delete, to remove them. Next, open the System Configuration utility by running “msconfig” from Start > Run. On the Startup tab, clear the checkboxes of the programs that you do not want to load during system startup. Select Apply and click OK to implement the changes and restart your PC.
Computer freezes due to hardware, generally occur when different hardware devices
The problems may also occur if the device driver of a particular device is erroneous. You can resolve these errors with the help of the Device Manager (Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager.) In Device Manager, locate the faulty device—depicted with a yellow triangle containing a yellow exclamation mark, right-click on it, and select properties. Here, on the Resources tab, you can manually modify the resource allocation of the conflicting device
