My computer keeps freezing [Solved/Closed]

- - Latest reply:  linutzu - Jan 10, 2013 at 09:30 PM
Hello,

Everytime I start windows XP & log into my settings, My computer freezes & I have to go into safe mode. I have no clue why & have done numerous scans for viruses, spyware, etc. I have come up with nothing. If anyone can tell me why its doing this & how to stop it without spending money that would be awesome. I really need the help as a I am a college student & most of my work is on this computer. I can't afford it to be crashing before next semester starts.
Please reply with help ASAP.

My Toshiba Laptop Is having a similar problem. It started a few days ago where whenever I log in either normal mode or safe mode, after a period of time of opening the browser or sometimes opening nothing at all.. My computer doesnt respond and then freezes and I have to restart it by holding power button.

I have already uninstalled my main browser firefox, and I am now using Internet Explorer and the problem has not changed.

I seriously need to get this fixed, as I have not had the computer that long and need it for studying.

Any help? Thanks in Advance.

Say "Thank you" 12

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

Okay mine does the same thing, I have the same exact computer and I thought it was just my computer doing this stuff I get into something really important. And it freezes and no matter how long you wait it out it never goes away I need to fix this so badly):
I have the same problem too. My computer will work fine, but if I try to watch a video or something the screen goes blank. I have a Toshiba.

IF you have the XP CD you can do a repair/install - go to this sit5e for instructions:

computer keeps freezing?it could be a malware or conflicting programs issue.check the fix here:http://computerkeepsfreezing.net
I reinstal the windows and not 1 time for 50 times I think and still the same problem this thing is not cause only by your windows or drivers or dlls is caused also by your procesor or your motherboard if the windows dosn't start after instaling drivers you'v got a big problem and you should go check what happened to you'r PC because is caused most probably by your motherboard,videoboard,and the list continue I'v got the same problem here but I got lucky after I changed my procesor

I had the same problem with my toshiba and it had XP what we found out later was that it was a battery/motherboard issue....Also, in MY case it was the mother board that had been fried because it kept restarting itself and wouldnt come into regular mode and would only start in safe mode....In this particular case you can reformat the drive and reinstall and that should help the problem.

I tried reformating... Same problem... Will try power supply change then motherboard... will let you know how it turns out. Also a little tip check the caps on motherboard if the look like they are leaking or bulging their about to blow sounds like small firecracker.

Do you get any messages for errors?

Repair/reinstall is never a good option, as it doesn't affect programs/files you may have which are causing the problem.

Reformatting the hard drive? No, you need to re-install Windows.

I think, it is because of the keyword problem. safe mode always starts when we press the enter. so first you should check your keyword.

Hi,

I had similar case. PC-Check said that everything is ok but everytime I connected internet or sometimes when logging on to machine freezed. I made new windows installation -> no help, then try change every part in computer to another (except motherboard) -> no help after that I tried to using IDE drive (before used sata) -> it helped, I think SATA chip broken. But I can't understand why It freezed computer especially when connected to internet. weird!

I have a trick...use an external hard drive adaptator to run the infected HDD in another PC with an anti-virus up to date (ex. ESET Internet Security) by USB. Iradicate all trojans an virus. Next re-put the HDD in the PC ant boot in safe-mode. Finally, do a system restore to repair errors that virus/trojan may have do.
