You can start by checking the Event Viewer. Right click My Computer / Manage. Check System for Errors and Warnings. They can be very technical, but most likely there is some event. Check Application as well. There is a Filter option under View. Leave Warning and Error checked.
A helpful tip.
like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in
disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type
MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck
anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make
Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup.
Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.
You might want to go into the bios to turn off halt on all errors,except keyboard.also pressing escape befor it freezes may let you see what is causing the problem while booting up. Maybe come up in safe made,to eliminate lots of taxing stuff. unhook any new stuff you may still have attached. also make sure cd or dvd disk drives are empty.Good luck!
there is a programme on the pc that is not compatable with vista, this is called "hanging" this is a common problem with vista as it is not compatable with certain programmes and hardware, you need to find the software that is causing the hang, go to the event viewer by right clicking on "my computer" and select "manage" select event viewer and the software, that will tell you which programme is causing the hang/freeze and uninstall it
