Re: computer freezes continuously ..

It's obvious that your computer faces cooling system failures. if you can manage on your own, i suggest you do the following:

1. detach the cooling fan and its heat sink and check whether there are some dirty that prevent direct contact to the processor.

2.clean the dirty and get the cooling system back to its position. make sure that the sink firmly touches the system processor.

The conection freezes up and looses important work without saving it and it moves real slow. Had computer checked and was told it was the conection.can this be fixed or do i need an upgrade. loss of m

There maybe several explanations for the freeze ups,but I think the major one lies with your internet services connections.Whats the speed of the connection?How's the networks availability?Try this and see what happens:-
  • Uninstall and reinstall the browser[firefox]
  • Set firefox as the default browser.If still freezes;-
  • Choose another network for the internet connections.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

Why does my internet freeze? what can I do

If your computer as a whole is freezing, then you have to check for viruses / malware.
But, if it is only your internet that freezes up, then try resetting your Internet Explorer.
I am presuming that you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, as your browser.
To reset Internet Explorer (IE) :-
1. Open Internet Explorer .
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons
check box, and then click OK.
5. Switch to the Security tab.
6. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
7. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
8. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
9. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click
Close, and then click OK .
10. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box
11. Close Internet Explorer . The changes take effect the next time that
you open Internet Explorer .
Try to reset IE, as explained above.
Even after resetting IE, if IE still freezes, then there may be some viruses / malware on your computer.

Video files are demanding of system resources. Maybe your computer can't keep up. Graphics card and/or memory up-grade might help.

There is no problem with your computer as a whole it is your hardisk that has a problem, It cannot continue installing the system files because an error occur in your hardisk. Format your hardisk with other computer.
If you have an extra hardisk much better.

Hello, the problem is with an acer aspire l100 desktop computer. When it starts up it freezes continuously and won't shut down. How do I solve this problem?

what are the starting and freezing conditions. i mean it freeze at what end. in the start, when windows starts, or on the other stage.
if ur computer freezes at very start, where the ram, hdd show. then its some hardware fault. it can be b'coz of ram. so check ur ram or rams.
if ur computer freezes at the starting of widows then it can be hardware but mostly software/ windows problem. so repair ur windows or try to run it on safe mod. b'coz if it run on safe mode then it dead sure that ur windows files have been corrupted or missing.

My laptop freezes nearly every time I use it, and is slow to log on to the Internet

Okay, well that could mean a lot of things. First, of all how old is this laptop?..When was the last time you ran a disk cleanup?..Well the reason I asked you how old your laptop was, is because if your laptop is super old then, that's the reason why it is always freezing up. And I asked how long ago it was wen you ran a disk clean up, because in a lot of cases, when people's computers or laptops freeze up, is because they dont run disk clean ups often..and just let unnceccesary files continue to pile up on the computer. So if your computer is old and you never run disk clean ups this is why your laptop keeps freezing up. For example: an older person is walking along..and you give them a sack of potatoes to carry..ok obviously their going to walk every 5 minutes you give them another sack of potatoes. Wouldnt you think that the old person is going to have to stop every now and then and catch their breathe?. Ok, think of a computer like that. Well those are the two main things that came to my mind. Like I said, it could be a number of reasons your laptop is doing this. Hope this helps! :]
