Computer freezing up

I recently bought a brand new computer with Windows Vista already installed. I've been having a problem with my computer randomly freezing up. It seems to go in streaks. Is that a Vista problem, or should I be taking my computer to be looked at?

Your computer is having a problem with the RAM. It will save you time AND money if you just buy more RAM for it. The ram (Random Access Memory) is what keeps your computer from freezing. More than likely, you don't have the required 1028mb that Vista requires. This was probably an oversight by the manufacturer.

The cheapest place to buy RAM is probably from www.newegg.com
You can either install it yourself or take it to a computer repair shop and have them install it.

Either way, your computer will be running fine in no time!

Hope this helps!

Geforce 8600 GTS recent drivers cause random freezes using vista


Hello,

Are you sure that it's the driver that's causing it?

I suggest that you run an anti-virus scan. It might have been caused by a virus infection in your computer.

You can also try using RadarSync to scan your computer for driver problems (outdated drivers), then you can google the drivers and install. RadarSync will give recommendations. If you want RadarSync to do all the things for you, then you can buy the license.

I hope this helps!

Asus computer freezing up


Windows vista is a large operational system that caused the very complaints that people were talking about and that is why window 7 came in because it is lighter and faster and takes less resources. But to address your problem sub out the ram memory one at a time to see if there is a difference, quite often reseating the ram will sometimes fix the problem.

I have recently bought a new computer and i installed the software, but the machine will not recognise the computer, can it be installed on computer with the new windows 7 or do i need an update??


Yes, it can be installed on Windows 7. Check the Futura support sight at www.Futura-support.com and look on the right hand side under downloads. There's a download listed for CE150/250/350, etc, that applies to XP 32 & 64 bit, Vista and Windows 7 32 & 64 bit. Follow the directions CAREFULLY! If this doesn't work for you, I've posted a set of instructions under CE100 solutions for running the CE100 software on Windows Vista/7 by installing a Virtual Machine software on Windows 7 that works regardless of the situation.

The update should work for you perfectly, however. Just make sure you uninstall the Futura software and reboot your machine BEFORE you do anything else and follow the instructions from the website carefully! Good luck!

Installation Freezes


Is there any possible way for you to see if it installs correctly on another computer? If it does then the problem doesn't have anything to do with the discs however if the installation error happens on another computer warranty will cover the replacement of the discs for you. I am not at my Vista computer right now but I know there is an option to run in XP compatibility mode, if you can turn that on, by right clicking and going into the disc/program properties, then you may be able to install it. Of course, that would only work if your on Vista, although XP has a compatibility mode for 98/me/2000 which might work. That's all that I can think of right now.

You might not have enough RAM, (Random Access Memory) RAM is memory that the computer temporarily stores for future commands, and I know Vista takes about 1-2 GB of RAM to run, if it can't handle it, I'd suggest using windows XP.
