Computer freezes and slows down

It's not a virus, I formatted my Hard drive and reinstall windows. My system runs are 50c. It will just randomally stop working. The whole thing just freezes and the only solution is to restart. It's happening way too often.

Also, now my windows music (The one that plays when you boot up to desktop) lags severely. I'm dying here, I have no idea of what else I can do

These type errors are often caused by faulty memory. Can you remove one of the memory cards? Try each one to see if you can identify a bad card.

Since you have re-installed the OS your problem would seam to be with the hardware.

Good Luck

Hi there,

Remove your ram clean it and reseat in respective slot and start machine,if no improvement feel free to revet back with more information.Add more ram to increase performance.

I agree, bad memory or hard drive, could be over heating
Make sure your video card and memory are seated properly

I had a brand new computer that came out of the box with a bunch of registry errors, got a blue screen on second boot until I cleaned the errors
