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.

When I turn my laptop on everything seems okay. As soon as I click on anything it freezes up, and will not unfreeze.


You may have a virus on the machine or another unspecified windows (assuming it's Windows) issue.

I would reccomend testing in Safe Mode.

- Turn off.
- Tap F8 immediately after switching on.
- Choose 'Safe Mode'.
- Test.

If it works ok there, then you may need to reinstall windows.

If still freezing, then you may have a hardware issue. Some further tests like HDD/Memory tests may be necessary.

I have an Acer aspire one netbook. As soon as i turn it on, it shows the first screen that is black with ACER on it, but it just freezes there. I can't access the computer unless i press F2 and exit setup....

Looks like there is something wrong with the registry database of your computer. Best way to fix is to clean Windows registry using some reliable software such as Reginout and start your computer normally. Also do the following.

> Limit your startup programs

> Uninstall unwanted programs

> Disable background running services

Computer Freezes unless pressure applied

With the laptop turned off, take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and then reseat it back into its slot and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn it on and see it will run without freezing on you and having to apply pressure on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work then disconnect the keyboard and see if it will run smoothly without the keyboard. If it does then you might have a stuck key on the keyboard that is making the unit freeze so you might have to replace the keyboard.

On the system configuration utility click on the startup tab then select disable all. Click apply then close. restart your computer again. It may be a corrupted startup program that is preventing your computer to boot up properly.

Does it feel like it's running hot? If so, check that the cooling vents are clean and that the fan is running. A second thought is that you may have some mal-ware that you've picked up off of the internet. I fought a similar problem on an IBM T41 for several weeks. Look up and download a copy of Ad-Aware SE (it's free!) I wouldn't have a computer without it installed. Picks up all kinds of crap that Norton never even sees. Same to be said about AVG, and that's free, too.
If this tips don't solve your issue, get back to me and we'll pick up from here.
