My 9 month old computer suddenly freezes up and must be rebooted

I have purchased this desktop for school, I pay my bills online and do online schoolwork. It came with windows vista. About a month ago, it suddenly would freeze up, the mouse would not move,a nd the only way to fix it was turn off the power strip. Not great when you are in the middle of an online test. I tried to look for solutions to download, but since I really dont know why it does it, I am lost.

Possible cause may be of either of these two insufficent memory or program malfunction.

First, check the space available on RAM on your sistem. The minimum RAM for a Vista PC is 512 but if you have 512 and is running slow you should upgrade to 1G.

Secondly, your hard disc may be getting full and it may also be the cause of the freezing. You may need to get a backup drive and save most of the file into the external drive or get a bigger hard drive for the system.

Thirdly, program malfunction. It may also be the cause.... Note the which program you are using and with that you can get the right program to uninstall. Or you can simply uninstall all the programs on the OS then reinstall them again..

You simply decide to reinstall a fresh Windows Vista or just repair Windows Vista with the Installation Disc.

Goodluck.

I am a long time customer of MBO and find it more difficult than ever to login to online banking.


Hi John:
I certainly understand what you are describing.
I tend to be "old school" and prefer to go tho the bank and speak to a human.
My wife on the other hand, can, in less than 30 seconds, pay bills, check balances, transfer funds, and access recent transactions.
All I can suggest would be that you visit your branch and discuss what you want to do via computer with a staff member. If they are as helpful as the staff in me BMO branch, they will coach you through it.
Your other choice might be to contact my wife................ er...........
maybe not.
Cheers.

View my account balance


Please contact the company with whom you have the account. FixYa is a free service and does not charge for it. Nor can FixYa tell you anything about an account you have with another company.

I wish to sign up for billing on line


Paying your bills online can save you time and save money on envelopes and stamps.
Once you complete the sign-up process for online bill pay you can set your bills to be paid automatically.
Online bill pay can also help ensure your bills are on time even when you leave them until the last minute.
Some banks charge a fee for online bill pay so if you are planning on paying most of your bills this way, consider opening an account that offers free online bill pay.

Log into your bank's online banking website.
If you have not registered for online banking you may have to contact your bank during business hours to register.
Locate the online banking link on the website.
Read your bank's online bill pay policies and fee disclosure that should be displayed once you click the online bill-pay link.
You must agree to these policies and fee disclosure before completing registration for online bill pay.


Click the add payment or new payment link to set up your first online bill payment.
Enter any information requested by your bank.
Your bank will normally ask for the name of the creditor or utility provider, address and the normal amount of payment.
You may also be asked for the due date for each month.
If the due date is not the same each month you should set the due date for the earliest possible.

Click the save or accept button. Repeat the process for each of your bills you wish to pay online.

I want to take all my information off of my old Pavilion50n computer and reboot it. To give it to a school. I just bought a new one and want to be sure all my personal info. is off of my old one.


You can purchase software like Drive erase for about $30.00. That will wipe your drive completely clean. Then you will have to reinstall Windows on the computer. You will need a complete OEM version of Windows to reinstall. You might have to reformat you drive before you can reinstall Windows.

I would check the Ram and CPU. If you can swap the ram you have with good ram, or if you have more than one stick of ram in there take one out at a time to see if thats the problem. Next go into bios and check the CPU temperature after you have been running your computer for a while. The problem with diagnosing this problem is how much time in between freezes. 18 times in 6 months makes it hard to diagnose, because you won't know if you fixed the problem unless it freezes again after you changed something, and even if it does freeze again it could be because of an entirely different problem.
