    It may be, where are you experiencing the freezing, how old is the hard
    drive/system, what version of Windows are you running, and what kind of
    freezing is it?

When changing from one profile to another my ps3 freezes. how can i fix this?


Your internal hard drive may be on its last legs. You might need to replace it with an off-the-shelf consumer laptop-sized (2.5") hard drive. Otherwise, you can access the recovery menu of the PS3 by turning off the console, holding the power button until the unit turns on and then off again, WITHOUT releasing the button until it does so, and then releasing the power button and holding it in again until you here three beeps in a row. Then you are to release the power button, and wait for the repair menu to start up. From there, rebuild the hard drive, and hope that fixes your issue. If it doesn't, take a trip down to your local electronics store and buy a hard drive from them. If you're lucky, they might even be willing to install it for you if you bring your PS3 along with you. Otherwise, it's very easy to install it yourself. Just go to Sony's website and follow their manual on replacing and upgrading a PS3 hard drive.

I am having a problem with my gateway sx2801-07e desktop. It always freezes up and I usually have to hold down the power button to turn it off. My hard drive light stays on and only blinks a few times...


There's nothing to say the hard drive is holding it up; check your system logs for warnings (they're conveniently timestamped,) and use anti-malware software to find and knock down programs that are producing the freezes. You could also run system performance profilers etc. to see whether your DDR2 is good, make sure fans are spinning as necessary, airflow's adequate, the videocard is seated well, heatsinks are firmly in place, etc.

I have an ibook computer at startup a question mark file pops up, but not always sometimes the operating system does startup. However, after anywhere from 10-30 minutes it freezes up and when i restart...


There are three possible causes that come to mind, all of them related to the hard drive interface.
1. A bad connection in the hard drive to logic board cable.
2. A problem with the hard drive power (on logic board), possibly a dying capacitor (inexpensive part, but not cheap to diagnose and replace).
3. A failing drive interface chip (may also have problems with the optical drive). This is a logic board problem.

Next time this happens, try starting up with the Apple Hardware Diagnostic disk. It should be able to help you home in on the problem. (If you don't have the AHD disk, use your System install disk and see if the hard drive is listed in Disk Utility.) If AHD says the hard drive is bad but does not report any issues with the drive interface electronics, 1. and 2. are more likely. If you can't get the computer to start up from an optical disk either, then 3. could be the culprit.

I have had OS9 applications on my computer for several years (I believe they were installed with the initial installation) and I never used OS9. Just wondering if I can delete these applications without...


Yes you can remove these applications without causing problem in OS X. I think however you'd be happier wiping the hard drive (AFTER backing up any files you need) and installing OS X fresh without the OS 9 feature; not only would you save quite a bit of hard drive space but you'll see the machine run quicker.

If you have time and are allowed to do so, try glary utilities. It is a free small and very fast and very effective virus remover, computer registry cleaner and optimizer and much much more. I recommend this to everyone.

Occasional freeze after startup


If it didn't make it through scan disk it is most likely the hard drive.

My western digital external HDD 650GB freeze my computer during boot up


These drives are too complicated and they die like crazy.
It sounds like it's fairly new so you shouldn't have problems with RMA.
You are lucky you didn't have any valuable data on it...
