Occasional freeze after startup

Startup is normal 8/10 times, freezes or takes 5 to 30 min to perform other two times.  i do note that the hard drive light is constantly lit during freeze. otherwise performance is excellent once the notebook gets underway. operates in safe mode, tried to run scan disk, didn't make it through the test.  I have tried to diagnose the problem,  taken the battery out, pulled the hard drive out and snapped it back in. the memory is secure. not sure what to do next, wondering if this is a hard drive or a motherboard problem? compaq nc6220 win xp 1gb memory 40gb hard drive intel centrino processor 1.75ghz any thoughts would be welcome thank you  rory

If it didn't make it through scan disk it is most likely the hard drive.

Hi, I need help, my pc freezes and I cant move the mouse or do anything else, I have to restart it. Please Help me.


Start/Run... Run msconfig. On General tab, select Diagnostic Startup. Reboot. Use the computer in this state for as long as the freeze usually appears.
If no freeze, return to msconfig General tab. Selective startup, uncheck Startup.
Repeat reboot and trial usage. If no freeze, check normal startup. On startup tab uncheck everything that looks non-essential. Reboot and retest. When the computer seems "fixed" recheck one startup item at a time. Repeat your timed test until the issue reappears. When it does, the latest startup item you enabled is the cause.

Imac g4 freeze restart


This is a sign of memory issues with your Mac. Replacing the memory should not be very expensive.

I cannot get past the startup screen! The nuvi just shuts off.


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

Why do i have an intermittent problem with my laptop freezing up during startup? startup?


You may have a bug. You may start by going to control panel and see how many programs are trying to start up at the same time. When my laptop does that I normally go to the control panel and stop programs and keep them from turning on at start up. you really dont need all programs to start up at the same time. This may cause freezing and longer times to start at start up.

I a 16 user L230. my problem is that the terminals freezes. At logon, they are fine but they start to freeze after about 20mins after i switch the system on. its not particular stations athat freezes but...


The terminals never actually freeze as they are getting desktop sessions from the host. What can happen is the desktop session can lock up and thus any corresponding user input doesn't happen due to the session being locked up. Next time this happens, see if the server/host is responsive. Assuming it is, launch Performance Monitor(Provided as part of the Windows OS) by going to Start ' Run ' Perfmon. Monitor your CPU performance. See what's taking all the CPU resources. It's not uncommon to see unncessary programs running, i.e. jusched.exe (Java Scheduler update), qttask.exe (Quick Time updater), etc. All these programs and other unnecessary programs run at startup and run for EVERY single user so in your case, the jusched.exe runs 16 times and can take valuable system resources. Disable these by going to Start ' Run ' msconfig, press enter, the farthest tab on the right labled STARTUP is where you can disable these programs. After deselecting the ones you don't need, reboot the host and tell the dialog box to NEVER tell you again so that it doesn't alarm you're users that you've messed with the startup config. Lastly, don't overlook that fact that you need 1GB NIC and backbone to the server, each device can take up to 15MB/s of network bandwidth.

It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reginout

My computer keep freezing and it sometimes just close my screen and i have to start over again some one told me i might need more memory


Click start button, select "Run", type "msconfig" Press enter.
Click now on Startup tab, untick all the program that loads during system start up.

Scan your PC with a good Antivirus like Kaspersky Internet security 2010 or A-squared Anti-malware with their lastest updates installed.

Malware,Worm,Virus too can caused the problem.

Here is the link for Kaspersky Internet security 2010 :

Clean your system for junk files and registry errors.Yamicsoft's WInXP manager is what I recommend.
Here is the link

http://www.yamicsoft.com/xpmanager/software/xpmanager.exe

Note: Microsoft Dotnet framework 2.0 or later is needed in order to install WinXP manager.


Let me know if it's helpful to you.But i somehow disagree with the conclusion addding more system RAM with stop system freezing.I take the idea that it will surely imporve system performance speed but will not solve freezing.

Computer is freezing


If it works in safe mode but not in normal mode, then it is probably a driver issue. I know that you've said that you've updated all of the drivers, but that really is the most common problem. (corruption in the file system.)
that said, click on >start>run and type in "msconfig" (without quotes)
Choose "diagnostic startup", restart your computer and see if it still freezes.
If it does, then it's probably your windows file system that's corrupted.
If it doesn't freeze, go back in to msconfig and turn on things one by one, restart in between, and keep going until you find out what is freezing it.
It may take a while, but that is the SAFEST way I know.
