Screen Randomly Freezes But Computer Still Running?

Aug 8, 2012

So this has been happening ever since I got my computer. I took it in to see if a service could take a look at it and they ran a benchmark to get the usage to 100% for like 22 hours. Computer was still running fine he recommended me to get a UPS because it could be browning out but that solved nothing.

So what basically happens is that once a week or 3 times a day, it happens randomly, could be while playing a game or just browsing the web. What happens is that the monitor just freezes it is still on it is like a screenshot of my screen it stays still, cursor stops, audio stops, everything. The computer is still running fine it could be a failure in hardware but most likely not. It is not the monitor itself because it worked fine with the same monitor with my previous computer and I just got a new monitor last week.

I also noticed is if it happens once then it'll happen a few more times in a day then it'll stop for 1-2 days and start again, could just be a coincidence but I don't know...

PC Randomly Freezes And Buzzes When Running Programs

Aug 1, 2012

Throughout the past week my computer has been sporadically freezing and buzzing, forcing me to restart when it happens. At random intervals it will freeze and proceed to make a buzzing noise that emits from my speakers. It never crashes to blue screen, I ultimately have to force a restart.

I've made sure that everything is properly connected and that the computer is clean. I'm not really sure what the problem is.

Computer Runs Very Slow / Computer Freezes Randomly

Mar 25, 2012

Computer runs very slow. Computer freezes randomly. Does not want to boot past windows startup except for in safe mode(SOMETIMES). IF IT BOOTS takes and an incredibly long time to get to the desktop (20-45min). Does not want to run programs. Runs EXTREMELY slowly (makes a windows 95 pc look like a speed demon.) Random restarts, restart loops, and shutdowns. Sometimes after turning on it will immediately shut off then turn back on. Keeps recommending windows repair on startup. Wants to run chkdsk, then freezes on it.Malware detection programs. Hardware diagnostic programs. registry tools. disk defrags. Driver updates. Windows updates. BIOS update. System restore. Windows repair tool. Repair installation (twice). WINDOWS 7 CLEAN INSTALLATION (twice).Exactly the same as the first day it started happening. So not only did I lose all programs and files, but my pc still runs like crap. Also, this is a higher end pc under a year old. [code]

Computer Randomly Freezes

Jul 13, 2011

I just recently bought my computer, It's been only about 4 months. I spent about 3k on it. It has 16 gigs of ram, Asus motherboard, ATI firepro v7800 which is a $750 graphics card, liquid cooling for my processor and I have a 120 SSD. Since a week or so I've been noticing my computer do weird stuff like if I'm listening to music and doing some work with 3d softwares the sound randomly lags a bit for about 1-3 seconds. And sometimes it messes up my mouse cursor.I spent quite a bit of money on my computer and bought all the parts that were top of the line 4 months ago. I would expect a new computer worth 3k to work exceptionally well and not be slow or anything. Does any have any idea what might be causing this problem? Do you think a part might be deffective and is not working properly and so how would I test it to confirm?

Computer Randomly Freezes Again And Again

Jun 28, 2012

Since last month my computer (Windows 7, 64-bit) has been randomly freezing up for a long time. When it gets frozen, I get the busy icon (like a rotating circle) in place of my mouse pointer. I click anything nothing works, it completely freezes. I have a habbit of opening too many tabs (maybe more than 50-60 on 2-3 windows)on my chrome and firefox. So i used to think that it was happening because of that. So i stopped opening so many of them and started using IE and opens maximum upto 5 tabs at once. But the system still freezes. Sometimes when it freezes I leave the system as it is for about 20-30 mins then it comes back to normal again for few mins then restarts it to come back to normal. Many times, i did the forced shut down but when I start it again, the OS is still frozen; sometimes before logging in (i.e when WIN-7 starts) but most of the times, just after logging in (after entering the password and clicking the log in button). I tried the memory scan by Avast free AV but it showed no errors. I have MSE installed before I disabled it and started Avast. Also I got MalwareBytes Anti-malware installed. I ran full scans for all three but to no avail. Also my HDD (500GB) is 45% free so no issue in that area.

Also, when it freezes upon startup i sometimes see just a header of a window titled as SSCKbdHK.exe. Searched it and found that it is not a virus and just a Samsung keyboard process. Also earlier, sometimes when after 20-30mins, system comes back to normal state, after 1-2 flipping of screens an error which was something like "NVIDIA GeForce 310M driver ver had encountered problems and had been restored back." I tried searching for drivers on OEM website and saw that this was the latest driver available there. but on Nvidia site, the latest driver is 301.42 (may 2012 release). Should i try installing it and check??

Computer Randomly Freezes

Mar 3, 2010

I have a computer at home that is experiencing what are (to me) some strange symptoms. Whenever the computer is being used it sometimes randomly freezes or locks up. Occasionally these locks are temporary, and then the computer resumes function as normal. Other times however, the computer locks up until a hard reset (when it does this, the sound also begins an endless loop of the same sound although eventually it progresses into a different sound but still very choppy and looping).

This is a seriously annoying problem, since it is so random that we have to constantly be saving work on the computer so that we don't lose it. The computer is used for a home business, and is only used for Quickbooks, internet and internet radio. The occasional card program or some such, but never anything too intense.

The computer is an older HP. It has an Athlon processor and 2056mb of RAM. I purchased a new hard drive for and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I checked the hard drive with diagnostics and everything checks out. I ran Memtest for 24 hours and got 0 errors with the memory. I've also stressed the CPU with Prime 95 and have not experienced the issue. It seems to happen randomly and with 0 warning whatsoever. I am completely stumped as to what the problem could be. I'm hoping some of you have some advice for me.

Computer Freezes Randomly - Does Not Shut Down

Oct 18, 2012

Lately I have been having problems with my laptop. It freezes randomly. Most of the time it's when I want to shut down the computer it just says "shutting down" but it doesn't till I hold the power button. And when starting up it's stuck once in a while and every time I try to disconnect my wireless internet it just gets stuck and ctrl + alt + del doesn't work at all.

Laptop Randomly Freezes And Screen Turns Black After?

Jan 9, 2012

I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this but, ever since I reformatted my laptop, it randomly freezes for about a second and a stuttering noise comes up. Then the screen turns black. It doesn't shut off because I could see the back light, it just turns completely black. What's causing this problem and how do I fix it? I checked the Event Logger and there are tons of errors and some critical kernal-power things.

Screen Freezes Randomly, Requires Hard Reboot?

May 11, 2012

Ok, so I am going to try to explain this as thorougly as possible while trying not to sound like an idiot in the process. I am by no means computer savvy so anyone that has any advice will more than likely need to talk to me like a 5th grader. I am ok with that. Since installing a Windows Update about a month ago, my screen will randomly lock up. At times it will clear itself after a couple of seconds and state something to the effect that "display driver amd has stopped working and recovered." Other times it will stay frozen for about 10 minutes and then will start functioning properly again. More often than not though, it will stay frozen indefinitely and require a hard reboot. This happens during mundane activities. No extreme gaming going on. Generally it is while just browsing the net. It tends to happen more often to my wife who uses it during the day to work through a VPN. I don't believe there is any correlation though. I have read multiple forums on the web and have tried several things, from cleaning the registry to uninstalling the driver software and reinstalling it in safe mode. The latter seemed to work last night but today my wife started having the same issue again.

Computer Randomly Freezes But Doesn't Restart

Dec 5, 2012

this computer is working away for surveillance purposes. It has been crashing since installation, maybe once every two days. The computer does not restart neither shuts down. It justs freezes, and happened once when I was there. I tried to turn on the display but it acted like nothing was connected, so I could not see if there was a BSOD.I opened the Event Viewer and the last event I can see (for example this very last time, the computer froze at 04:29 AM), under "Error" category, it displays: The device, DeviceHarddisk0DR0 has a bad block. The error appears 3158 times, from 01:12 AM to the time of the crash.Do I have to replace the HDD or would it be something else? [code]

Computer Randomly Freezes On Sleep And Reboot

Feb 12, 2013

It freezes everytime i put it into sleep mode, and also when i reboot it. In sleep mode, the monitor turns off, but the computer continues to run (fans and lights are still on). I at first thought it was a PSU issue, but then it started to hang during games and it also freezes while booting the computer. The first time it froze mid-bios, then it froze a couple of times after the bios (when loading an OS), and it is now frozen on the windows boot screen (The logo and "Starting Windows").

BSOD - Computer Randomly Restarts, Sometimes Freezes

Apr 6, 2012

my computer has been freezing and randomly restarting the last couple of days.

When it restarts sometimes it has to boot a couple of times, it seems as though it can' boot the BIOS, the bios splash screen is also different, this also changed 2 days ago. The first couple of times it froze, now it just restarts randomly. I suspect the motherboard.

System Info:

- Full Retail
-Age of system hardware: 4 years
-Age of OS installation 6 months

Computer Freezes Randomly With External HDD Plugged In

Jun 14, 2012

My computer is an Alienware M11x R1 (yes yes, gripe all you want, I like them!) running Windows 7 Premium 64 bit. Okay so since the day I got my M11x it has been freezing randomly. No one could find the source of this problem, though I seem to have located it recently...

Whenever I have an external HDD plugged in my system will completely lock up randomly. Can't move the mouse or do anything, the last sound that was playing hangs (Ie. if a song was playing the song would go kind of "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-" continuously), and I have to shut it off by holding the power button. It can go for a week without locking up or it can lock up two times in a single day. It also does this with some random programs that it just doesn't seem to like very much.

I just went out and bought a new HDD to see if it was a compatibility problem (the old external I was using was fairly old) and it just froze up again while using the new one...

Computer Freezes Very Randomly With No Sort Of Prompting

Aug 2, 2012

Recently in the past couple of weeks my computer has been freezing at random internals with absolutely no warning or prompting at all. It's not a case of me opening a specific program, or making it perform memory-intensive tasks -it will just completely freeze up out of the blue. This morning, all I did was turn it on and by the time I came back from making my cup of tea it had frozen itself. The other day I was typing a sentence onto a word document with no other programs open and it froze. The entire laptop becomes unresponsive -the capslock key doesn't respond, although interestingly enough my graphics tablet seemed to still be responsive (the lights would change colour like normal when I use my pen on it). The only option I have is to do a hard reboot.

This has been happening intermittently for the past couple of months (perhaps starting around June?), but it's only recently starting to get worse. Before it happened once a week, and now it's starting to happen about once a day. I've run a virus check, registry clean and deleted some of my most recently installed programs but neither of them have helped.

The computer runs fine otherwise -no excessive slowing down, no crashing programs..

Computer Freezes Randomly / Keyboard Becomes Disabled And Unresponsive

Jan 12, 2012

i am currently unable to work on assignments on my own computer or enjoy games because it freezes completely sporadically requiring a hard boot. essentially the computer freezes on me and the keyboard becomes disabled and unresponsive. the mouse cursor on the screen slows down, like the sensitivity was turned down 95%, and moves sluggishly, and then i know the freeze is coming. the computer desktop freezes completely, the keyboard becomes disabled and sometimes the screen turns a faint transparent white depending on what application i am running. the cursor then turns into an animated hour glass that i can move around the screen totally normally, with no lag, but everything is unresponsive. i then need to do a hard boot and end up frusturated, tempted to through my computer at the wall.i've scanned the computer with at least 10 different reputable antivirus programs and i have repaired all the registry errors. i've uninstalled programs i no longer need and searched all over solutions, to no avail. [code] i looked at event viewer to try to see a log of the issue but the only error it reported was id 41, from the hard boot. when i'm on Internet and it locks up permanently, the Internet video continues to play.also the freezing is totally random and sometimes i can go for 5h without it happening, other times it freezes up within 10 minutes. usually it freezes up between 10-30 mins of system starting up.

Computer Freezes Unless Running In SAFE Mode?

Mar 11, 2012

I have a Toshiba laptop running Win 7 (64bit). Lately the computer freezes up in less than five minutes if running in normal mode, leaving only hard-boot option. When restarting, I go to "Safe with Networking" mode, and everything seems to run fine, even internet. I have repeatedly run scans from: Malwarebytes; SuperAntiSpyware; SpyBot; Windows Defender; CCleaner; Periform FixCleaner; TDSSKiller, and probably another half dozen. I have reset the Hosts file, and recovered to a reset point established back in December, before the current problems began. Nothing has solved the problem (any threats found in the various scans were removed, but that had no effect on the current problem). I suspect, from the scan results, that the problem is not malware. I think there may be a corrupt or damaged file or process somewhere in the system. The OS is factory installed, and the laptop did not come with a Windows disk. What's the best way to clean this up

So I've just built a new computer with the new 2011 chipset and initially the computer would freeze without warning while I'm playing games through steam, since then I have reinstalled windows and now it freezes when playing video files and FileZilla. I have no idea what is going wrong with the computer as I have updated the drivers and tried checking the components individually. Temp readings are normal and used memtest and intel burn test to check the ram and CPU. I have used my old nvidia GeForce 8800gt graphics card instead of the new one but it still doesn't work.
