When i click on send to computer freezes


Either you are running low on pc resources such as ram (memory), hard drive OR you have a virus.

1. You could try doing a "system restore" and go back in time to when it worked also.

2. Try to do a complete virus scan. AVG free edition of coarse is free.

3. Buy some more pc memory.

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen


Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.

Screen saver freeze


Its probably your graphics card or driver. Try changing your screensaver to one without animations, if that fixes it you need to look into your graphics processing.

Sounds like the computer is coming from sleep, standby or hibernation mode. Go to the power settings in the control panel, and disable all of these options. Disable your screen saver as well. Leave the machine on for a day and see if it happens again after this. Post your findings, please...

I get a blue screen that says my computer was shut down to protect from crashing, and it says it dumped my memory


I recently saw a very tricky virus that made it look like my computer was getting blue screen of death. It was acutaly a virus that had replaced my screen saver. They had even faked the screens that made it look like it was rebooting. I had also been locked out of the screen saver functions so I couldn't turn it off.

I booted in safe mode and removed the current screen saver.
I also ran a full virus scan.

Blue screens are normally caused by corrpted system files or faulty hardware.
But I'd do the screen saver test first.
