    Do you receive any error messages when your computer freezes or after you reboot? Does the problem occur any time other than when you are converting dvd's?



    You can clean up your hard drive by using disk cleanup. This utility, (found in the 'START' - 'All PROGRAMS' - 'ACCESSORIES' - 'SYSTEM TOOLS' menu), will examine your hard drive and provide you with a list of temporary files, most of which can be safely removed. After disk cleanup you will want to use the disk defragment utility.

Hi there,
this sounds like a lack of resources on your system... i would recommend that you increase your RAM ..say if u got 256Mb upgrade to around 512Mb ... also you should look at your CPU processor also ... this would have an effect on the speed and how your system goes about burning DVD's ...also make sure nothing else is running in the background ...say virus scanners etc....also maybe u can try this software ..works nicely:-

Why does my curor freeze up?


First I would replace the batteries. I had the same problem a couple of years ago. The solution for me was getting rid of McAfee AV. To check if it is your problem, use CTL-ALT DEL to turn McAfee off and see if that gets rid of your mouse freeze ups.

Acer Aspire 4720z WIndows Vista- crashes every day


there is a programme on the pc that is not compatable with vista, this is called "hanging" this is a common problem with vista as it is not compatable with certain programmes and hardware, you need to find the software that is causing the hang, go to the event viewer by right clicking on "my computer" and select "manage" select event viewer and the software, that will tell you which programme is causing the hang/freeze and uninstall it

Does it freeze once you start to use the burning software or just when the hardware is plugged in.

If its when you use the software, try reinstalling the software.

Otherwise, try reinstalling the DVD burner driver.

Frequent freezing of mouse,and unexpected shut down


the mouse is freezing because, you have either too many programmes running at start up, conflicting drivers, slow start up anti virus programmes, or you may have a virus or trojan/spyware programme running in the background. The shut down could be a processor overheating problem, so check all your vents and fans for clogged up dust and ensure your pc is well ventillated.

Freezing


Firstly i would suggest unindtalling the programme and installing again. To give a clue as to what the problem is, go to Control Panel>Performance & Maintanence>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer. On the left hand side, look down the list to Applcations and click on it; and look at the dates when you ran the programme to give a clue as to the fault.

PDA freezes


Instead of doing the restore again and again I would start from scratch. First do ony the basics (the programs/drivers you need to replicate the problem). If it works then, install all other things. If not, you can always go back to the restore. The problem with a restore is that, if the Registry got screwed up for one reason or another, the problem will come back as soon as you restore. Installing from scratch will prevent that. If it doesn't help you could have a hardware problem. I suggest you contact HP about a replacement or a repair on your unit. How's the warranty? Good luck
