Diagnose Connection Problems With Internet Explorer
Internet connection and network errors can be frustrating and confusing to a casual computer user.
However, Internet Explorer provides a diagnostics tool to help identify and even repair the most common network issues.
This tool is simple to use, organized in steps, and can help get a computer back up and running quickly.

Open Internet Explorer and click on the "Tools" button in the control bar at the top of the window. From the "Tools" menu, select "Diagnose Connection Problems."
A window will appear, displaying the start page of the diagnostics tool.
Follow the instructions to determine the cause of the connection error.
The diagnostics tool will ask a series of multiple-choice questions about the connection problem you are experiencing.
Close all programs and restart the computer.
If you continue to receive an error when attempting to connect to the Internet, check that all cables and power-supply cords for the computer, modem and/or router are properly connected. Then, run the diagnostic tool again.
Call your Internet service provider's technical support phone number if you cannot resolve the error with the diagnostics tool.
The Internet Explorer diagnostics tool cannot repair or reset malfunctioning or failing hardware like modems and routers.

Internet crashing
If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection.
Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit.
It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.
Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History."
Hit "Delete All."
Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons."
Hit "OK."

Close and reopen the browser.
Disable Add-Ons
Go to "Start > Search."
Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter."
The computer will search for any files with this label.
Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)."
This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash.
Reset Internet Explorer
Open the IE browser.
Go to "Tools > Internet Options."
Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter."
Close and reopen the browser.
You might have to many programs trying to or accessing your computer or the internet at the same time or a virus

  1. The computer is freezing though the component parts are designed to withstand motion picture malfunctions known as freezing. Computers with enormous hard disk spaces to contain several user programs are least likely expected to experience freezing conditions. Also, computers with improved graphics, sound media, video hardware components least should experience multimedia malfunctions. Freezing occurrences on computers have several causes discussable.

Usually a functioning computer requires components mentionable as hardware's that are the visible aspects, and software's that may have been installed to take a visual display format. A functioning computer would usually have the software's integrated into the hardware's from the manufactures facility. For example, acquiring a computer from retail would be in functioning mode with every component parts intact as default built for the user. However, once a functioning computer begins to malfunction would be due to either hardware component or software components. The conditions that could make computers freeze are conditional. First, freezing malfunctions are caused by software overloads resulting in a hardware overburdenment. For example, the computer would have been installed with programs at the manufacturer as operating systems that make functionalities possible. Once the computer was turned on prior to the user interactions, what is displayed is the operating systems usually a manufactures default feature. However, the computer is provided with spaces as an expectation for the user to achieve experiences several mentionable. For example, the computer user is provided spaces on computers for productivities purposes mentionable with office or school resources manipulations. A specific amount of space from the manufactcturer was placed to allow for the operating system to be alterted should any occurrences arise. Alterternately, the user interfaces has spaces allocations for manipulations discussable. First, filling up the computers spaces produces least performance either extensively display programs without continuous transition like as before with default functionality. Saving several programs on the available spaces causes freezing due to least spaces for motion to occur For example, the type of media on the computer may actually take extensive spaces. Motion pictures simply require enough computer space to be saved, thereafter displaying like expected else would produce still images also thought as freezing since not every motion is capable of displaying entirely with spaces provided however. Second, a download of a virus may cause the computer to freeze sending a response to the user that the spaces on the computer are full while in fact, the virus was perhaps designed to perform as impediment to usually space accessibility required for the entire computer to display appropriately. So far the explanation has been about the causes of software malfunctions that display results on the screen noticeable as freezing images. Alternately however, the computer may still appear frozen with hardware malfunctions discussable. First, the computer hard disk stores the operating systems programs installed at the manufactures. Once the hard disk programs are damaged either describable as crashes due to physical exposure, impact, or simply out dated, the computer may display remnants programs least achieving user desirable experience. Hard disk conditions includes that the physical wiring to the motherboard have come loose. Inspecting the disk connections to ascertain very component parts are intact would be likely diagnostic for hardware's malfunction also explainable for freezing computers. Several components within the computer once over burdened causes motion sluggishness. For example, the graphics hardware mentionable as memory cards, video cards, or multimedia readers may have become outdate for reasons discussable. First, the computer may have space for several programs. However, installing multimedia programs would require improvements such components as media readers to achieve desired experience.

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...


Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Toshiba Satellite a215-s4747 randomly crashes


Hi!

When you says you run hardwarae diagnostic I guess that it is the hardware diagnostic tools from the computer itself.

Try downloading this software, it is a ISO image, so burn in a CD and boot from that CD.

It will boot up and run a memory diagnostic in DOS mode.

I think that this is a memory problem.

P.S. Did you clean the memory contacts and memory slots in the computer?

Do you have more than one module of memory RAM? In that case try with only one and switch with the second one to see what is the defective module.

Toshiba A105-S2101 keeps crashing!


Sounds like a memory 'leak'. Just because it's the 'correct' memory, doesn't mean it's not faulty. I would have them exchanged.

You can run a Microsoft memory diagnostic program to determine is they are faulty.

The software is free from Microsoft from here:

Also, always try to stick with a 'known' brand (kingston, samsung, etc).

Computer crash/need upgrade


I need more information to properly assess this problem.

What sort of P.C. is this? How old is it? How much R.A.M. (Random Access Memory) do you have? What O.S. (Operating System) are you currently using?

My first "guess" is that this is a lack of R.A.M. Games usually use an awful lot of memory for their graphics functions in their programs.

Today's standard for most computer operations are about 1 G.B. (Gigabyte) of D.D.R. (Double Data Rate) R.A.M. (Random Access Memory)
