    Re: Windows freezes or stops responding frequently.

    Hello. Ok calm down, I will try to solve the problem. First of all you have to know that this problem usually occurs because of:
    1. Software related issue.
    2. Driver related issue.
    3. Operating system related issue.
    4. Heat related issue.
    5. Hardware issue.
    6. Serious issue with Windows
    7. Hardware failure.

    I will recommend some solutions for problems that are frequently freezes or completely halts. An easy way to determine if your computer is in this situation is by pressing the Num Lock button on the keyboard and watching the Num Lock led to see if it turns off and/or on.
    If you're able to get the light to turn off an on, press CTRL + ALT + DEL and attempt to end task the program.

    I hope it works.. :ugeek:

        A computer locking up or freezing is often is caused by a software related issue. If you're encountering lockups when the computer is opening a particular program, make sure you have all the latest updates for that program.

        Tell me if this help?

          good advise, but there is no software that needs to be upgraded as far as I can find...

            A computer lock up can also be caused by drivers. For example, if there is an issue that exists with your video drivers a computer could lock up while playing a game or displaying any other type of video. Make sure you have the latest drivers for all major devices in your computer (video, sound, modem, and network). Usually not installing after a format causes these kind of problem.

                Make sure your operating system has all of the latest updates installed on it. Maybe this can not also solve your problem but.. Wait a minute.. I guess I have found what is your problem.. The most of the problems occur when installing a new pc.. But if you have been using it for 6 months, what is the condition in your room??

                If the computer processor is getting too hot it can cause the computer to freeze. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing, this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
                You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans, enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
                You may also be able to determine how hot your computer is by onboard thermal sensors. If your computer comes equipped with these sensors, make sure your CPU is not running too hot.

                  yes everything at the back of the computer burn!!

                  thanks for the advice, I guess I am going to buy a new fan.

                    I think for these types of problem, better have it handled by computer experts or you might end up having it entirely 'frozen'.
