    You could try running your system file checker. This will scan your Operating System and try to fix any problems it finds.
    start> run> Type sfc /scannow (note the space after sfc).

    You may need your OS disk.

I put a disc in my disc drive and nothing happens.

This is gonna be a bit complicated since were going to access your registry, but just follow all the steps and it will be much easier
>Click on START >Type REGEDIT on the search bar on START Menu >Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >Expand SYSTEM >Expand CurrentControlSet >Expand Control >Expand Class >Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} >Look for the Upper Filters / right click on it / click on Delete >Look for the Lower Filters / right click on it / click on Delete >Restart PC >Try you CD / DVD ROM
If nothing happens, click on this link then click on RUN and follow the steps, then restart computer and try to run a disc again, if still nothing happens, theres a possibility that the problem is with the hardware side or the media player that you are you using...
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

My computer

Hey mabstoa,

Could we possibly get some quick specs on the computer? Also, when did this start happening?

Sometimes, doing windows updates can cause things to occur in a computer if they are not installed fully, or correctly.

I would highly suggest doing a windows update to see if that will help with the issue.

You may also want to consider the issue being associated with spyware. When the "flashlight" situation occurs, it's trying to link the Icon with the actual location. And if its My Computer it's looking for, that's not a good thing.

You can attempt to do a scan on your computer to rid yourself of any potential threats. There are many options out there.

You could do a virus scan through trendmicro ->

You could download ad-aware and run a scan ->

Also, try this.

Click on start, and then run. Type in msconfig, and then click on OK.

Go to the far right tab labeled startup. click on disable all. Then go through and make sure, if you have an anti-virus in the list, that it's enabled.

Restart the PC, and have a go at it.

If none of this works, then double check and make sure your PC isn't overheating whatsoever. Sometimes, heating issues can cause a PC to hang like this. But usually, it's the entire system, and not specific like this issue.

If all else fails, attempt to re-install your operating system.

Hope this helps.

same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Home pc


try this,
click on start then run, type msconfig in command box,
system configuration window should show up. click on tab called startup. click disable all, then apply, then click ok, it should ask if u want to restart. please restart the computer.

what will it do? it will disable all startup applications.
if this resolves the issue, then you would know its one of the startup application causing your computer to freeze it.

also right click on bottom bar, then click task manager.
click on tab called processor.
average processor is 25-30.
in my laptop i have only 19 processor runnning.
if you have alot of processor running that definitly cause PC to slow/freeze.

hope this information help you
