The black box may be a programme starting to run an update on screen, but the driver is corrupt or the internet connection and is halting the pc, but, could you expand a little as you have put most of your problem in the subject and not in the actual post.

My Acer Aspire One D257-1679 Laptop Constantly Freezes. Maybe Windows 7 Drivers out of Date and is not compatable.Should I do factory Reset?. Thank you


I just fixed a laptop with windows 7 freezes

windows 7 support has ended
all you need ot do is reduce the number of programs the computer is running

C drive needs lots of free space

if you want to keep the computer ..these things help

first store what you want to keep on to usb sticks
documents ,pictures ,files ,

not on the hard drive

delete all the unwanted items off the c drive
look into the users ..remove "Temp "

go through all the programs on c drive and uninstall
as many non windows 7 and unused microsoft programs and also unwanted computer games and printer drivers
clear all the downloads
clear the memory cache
defrag the c drive
scan for virus and troguns

if using versions of office above 2000 will slow /freeze the pc

windows 7 when released was based as a 32 bit and some x64
window 10 can be uploaded only if window 7 has upgraded to stage 3 but it will be slow
stuff that is X 86 will slow windows 7

Youtube keeps stalling, plays for 20secs then just stops?


YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.

For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible

2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.

3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.

4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.

5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reginout cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

My computer runs window 7 and it keeps shutting down for no reason and also it keeps freezes for sometime.


Reboot the computer in "Safe" mode and run it for a while and see if the same problems occur. If it doesn't, then I would suspect it is a software and not a hardware problem.

If you think it is a software problem, reboot the computer into safe mode again. Now click the start button and in the search box type MSCONFIG

When the window pops up click the "Selective Startup" button and then on the startup tab. Deselect all the checked boxes, click apply and ok, reboot the computer normally.

Now only the essential services will load and no programs will automatically load. If the computer continues to run normally, then you can go back into MSCONFIG go to the strat tab and start checking a few boxes to start again, like antivirus and malware first. Reboot the computer and see if it freezes with those programs running....if it does then you know one of those is the culprit, if not click a few more on and reboot until you find the trouble software.

What is the problem if your computer freezes often


Two things to try
1) Go to C:\ right click to properties / Tools / Error check click it new box tick little box to fix errors and reboot.Windows will scan disk and fix any errors
2) Go to Start / Run / type in box "msconfig" then press enter new box pop up go to startup and stop all programs from running except for anti virus and firewall.
Dont worry the programs you stop can be started in the normal way

The problem with computer freezes is you either have to many programs running or a running program clashes with another. Doing this will free up a lot of memory to stop this

YouTube Freezes


Perhaps there's something that is running in the background that is slowing your machine down?
Another thing that might help you is to empty your cache memory.
