Notebook Random Freezing In About 30 Minutes Interval
Jan 9, 2013
I have a random freezing in about 30min interval. I can move mouse, watch video but its like lag, freeze, hang all my notebook for 2-3 seconds. I already updated my video drivers, scanned my hard drive.
My computer freezes randomly when I am using multiple programs. For example Photoshop and Chrome. Fortunately it doesn't happen all the time. But is it is still very annonying. I think the problem is driver related but I'm not sure. It has never happend when playing games.
Symptons: Freeze/Lockup. Cannot control the mouse. The only thing I can do when it happens is to hold the power button.
- Computer: Alienware 17 Laptop
- OS: Windows 8.1
- Attachment: Event Viewer administrative logs- Do you need more information?
This has been happening for a while, my computer will randomly freeze up, most the time I can move my mouse around but my internet seems to cut out (cant load any pages), all applications start to not respond, and it takes around 1-3 minutes to unfreeze. I have a ASUS G46V gaming laptop.
I have Asus Z87 Deluxe, CPU Intel I7 4770k Quad Core, Hard Drive Western Digital 4TB SATA HDD, Monitor Asus 24 class LED, Video card Asus HD7790. Running windows 8.1 pro with media centre (x64) (build 9600) It boots into legacy mode. My BIOS is American Megatrends Inc. 1007. I know there is a later version, but I am a little paranoid to flash the Bios concerned I may Brick it.
I am experiencing random screen freezing and I am not sure why. I believe I have the latest drivers for all hardware.
I am at my wits end having had this problem for a month now. I am not to tech savvy to be honest. What I am thinking is my windows should have been installed in UEFI mode ( I am thinking this only because I am running out of things to try). Do I have to do a clean install to accomplish that and if doing so is that likely to solve my problem? Most of the freezes happen when I am working on the desktop with more than one program open (but not always) but quite often it involves playing a video.
I keep getting those damn BSOD's after playing for about 20 with 30 minutes. Every thing is up to date so I don't see what is wrong... The funny thing is that I get those BSOD's only when I play BF3, it doesn't even happen to BF4!
I have completely installed a clean win 8.1 install and still have this freezing issue. It happens after i login and after my bitdefender internet security loads fully i try to click on the desktop icons but they are frozen. My mouse moves and i can click on the taskbar and startbutton and CRTL+ALT+DELETE as well. It freezes the desktop icons for 30seconds max. I have booted into safemode and it occurs there as well.
I have ran multiple malware and antivirus scans, sfc/scannow, DISM /Online/Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth, checked my event viewer for any errors, ran chk dsk, bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes, i cant figure it out. All drivers are up to date, I disabled my lan adapter since i am using wifi. Windows updates are updated, defragged the harddrives, and I been reading through forum after forum but i have not seen this exact problem before. Also this is on stock BIOS no overclock, I also monitored the cpu and memory usage during the time of freezing and it nothing out of the ordinary usage, cpu is kept within 5% and memory is at 20% or less.
I recently did a clean reinstall of windows because I was having random BSOD/freeze issues. Everything has been fine for the last two weeks or so but I just got another BSOD playing League, and then about half an hour later I had a spike of CPU usage that froze my comp for about 30 seconds.
i brought an HP Pavilion G6 and it comes with an GUID partition table (GPT), EFI and Secure Boot. However i need an MBR partition table, so i tried disk managerment but the option "convert to mbr" is greyed out and when i run the "diskpart - list disk - select disk 0 - convert mbr" i get an error "cannot convert a partition which has a pagefile on it" (disabling the pagefile didn t worked).
I guess my only other option is to format it, but the notepad comes with an lincesed Windows 8 which i dont wont to loose. So what are my options? I dont ave the CDs, as it s HP packet.
Update:I ve successfully formatted my Notebook. All i had to do is enter legacy mode, disable secure boot and boot from the Windows 7 DVD. So if you ave no intention using Win 8 it won t be a problem to "downgrade" in an UEFI/EFI System.
I have an HP Envy notebook. bought it 3 months ago. made recovery disk (actually it's on a flash drive). Had troubles with the notebook. HP support walked me through factory reset. Twice.
Never used the flash drive. used whatever was on the computer. Whether or not to keep the recovery stuff I put on the flash drive? Just wondering if its a waste of a perfectly good flash drive, seeing as I never used it when I reset.
I have hp notebook with windows 8 OS. When I plugged in the charger the display totally disappears and the screen has black for only 1, 2 seconds. And the same situation is when i removed the charger. But this is not happened when i was using windows 7. Is this a problem or a feature of windows 8.
I have a MSI 780dxr w/ a i7 and an Nvidia 570m (3gig) and playing some games the rig just shuts off. The fan is working like it always did before I upgraded from 7 to 8, and the turbo boost for the fan works as well
So this morning my dad went to power off his ASUS K55N Notebook, and it didn't turn off correctly, the screen went black, but the system stayed powered on (had to perform a hard shutdown). He didn't perform any Windows Update(s) or install new drivers prior to this, he didn't change anything, and just now it did the same thing.
the Notebook was performing perfectly fine before today.

I purchased a new notebook and it has Office 2014 installed.. I was using Outlook on my old notebook, is there a way to migrate my account/folders/emails to my new notebook? I want to just pick right up where I left off, not have everything 'archived' and start new or anything..
I have a MSI cx640dx notebook the core i3 version and it came with windows 7 installed on it,I replaced it with windows 8.1 pro with media center and everything was fine,but when I installed the intel graphics drivers (either from windows updates or manually) it started to give me a blank screen on restart so I have to pres the power button to make the system go to sleep and start it again to get my screen back (this happens on every restart) but when I shut down and start normally that doesn't happen
I have a software on my notebook called Lenovo Energy Management, and there's 2 battery mode available, the one is "Maximum Battery Life" and the other is "Optimized Battery Health" so I choose "Optimized Battery Health" mode, and leaving my notebook while it is charging for about 5 hours.
When I am go back home, I saw that my battery is stay on 60% and it say "Plugged in, not charging". It won't charge the battery higher than 60%, so I guess the battery is limited to 60% from it's full capacity. The question is, is it safe for the battery if I leave the notebook while it is charging for more than 5 hours even the battery capacity is limited?
I'm trying to dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 in the same machine.
Before doing something this risky on the host computer I tried to install Windows 8 in a VM using VirtualBox but I got an 0x0000005d error similar to the screenshot below:
which means my CPU doesn't seem to support the NX (Non-eXecute) or XD (eXecute Disabled) bit feature (or at least doesn't have it enabled).
I proceeded to check with CPU-Z and going to the model page on HP's website and both of them seem to imply that the NX feature is available for my CPU.
Here's the CPU-Z screen:
The problem is that even though I have the "Hardware Virtualization" feature enabled in the BIOS, it seems like there's no option available regarding said NX (or XD) bit by default. The BIOS software is InsydeH20 Rev 3.5, version F.32.
Is there a way to be able to install Windows 8 on said computer that doesn't involve having to upgrade the BIOS software?
I have my main nbook (MSI GT683R-261CS), which have UEFI (AMI Aptio). However when I try to install Windows to (pre-created) GPT GUID sytem boot partition, Windows installation program kicks me to balls, that it can't be installed there. In UEFI setup, there is no option to switch between MBR and GPT boot. Is there any utility, which will tell me, if my machine supports booting from GPT GUID?
I proceed in creating system boot GUID GPT by something like this:
Code: rescan list disk select disk[=n] detail disk list partition select partition[=n/l] detail partition
I have the Asus Netbook and I updated the software.
But now it has completed its updating but the screen freezes, I can't touch screen anything and only can lock and unlock the screen. It also cannot shut down, so do I wait for it to run out of battery?
Just got my hands on a brand new ASUS K95VB notebook on behalf of a friend. I used a USB with Windows 8.1 on it in order to format the hard drive and install Windows. The hard drive is 3TB. I remember trying to install Windows using the UEFI option in the usb startup menu but that didnt work so I proceeded on the non-uefi option.
Now the problem is that only 2 TB are shown and the remaining 1 TB is shown only in device manager as not assigned...
If I understand correctly, the BIOS should be in UEFI mode and then the hard drive should be converted to GPT and then install Windows.
But, no option in BIOS for UEFI to be enabled whatsoever. What on earth should I do?
For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening. I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't work.

I have a new Windows 8-notebook connected to a workgroup-ethernet-network via router,to which a windows [version unknown]-server is connected and 6 other clients,2 of them macs,4 xp-pcs.
On all machines,3 other machines resp shares are constantly visible in "network places":
1 the server-share 2 a client-1 share (which has no internet access) 3 a client-2-with-internet-access-share
The notebook gets internet via the wall-plugged lan,from a router-plugged DSL-router. All issues mentioned here are not dependent on which lan-wall-socket is used. (there are 3 in each room). There is no wlan-accesspoint.
Issue: The notebook is _not _seeing_ (not in net places,and not forceable) the server-share_, despite the fact,that the share has been used before to install a bigger client-server software,which worked.
First appearance: Some day someone tried to access a lan-wall-plug-connected printer for printing, which at that time could be seen in network places,as then could the server; after which _both_ disappeared.
Unfortunately,above said client-server-sw is not working anymore on the notebook. How can I bring back the server-share to the Windows 8-notebook?
maybe 2 weeks I get randomly BSODs, sometimes with "Multiple_IRP_Completed_Requests", sometimes with "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT" errors.
It felt to me that they appeared more often after starting the computer out of standby/hibernate. But today it happend while watching a video over HDMI. After starting, Windows tells me that it wants to send the following to Microsoft (just in case it's important):
I have a Dell Inspiron 3137 Notebook Running Windows 8.1 and I use Internet Explorer 11. There is one website that I can't connect to, all I get is a blank page. It is a site that I pay my credit card on. Everyone of my other web pages loads properly. I am real good at fixing problems on my computers and numerous other people's computer problem, but I have to admit that this one problem has got the best of me.
This website worked fine on Windows 8, but I upgraded to Windows 8.1.... now it won't load the website.
