Dell Studio 1745 Freezes Randomly


My new dell studio 1745 running windows 7 (64 bit) home premium / intel core 2 duo cpu t6600 @ 2. 20ghz / 4gb ram / freezes (for about one minute - once per day) randomly. I'm usually running the following applications daily: ie8, ms office 07, including outlook, excel, and word; itunes, and adobe reader. As i mentioned above, the machine randomly freezes (for about one minute) once a day. Sometimes the mouse cursor disappears during the freeze. Other times it turns into the "i'm working. Please wait" spinning wheel, during the freeze period.

Dell Studio Randomly Freezes

It's strictly random. There's no pattern i can discern in terms of timing or programs running. I'm running ms office and i use the firefox browser.microsoft security essentials.computer will freeze whether or not the browser is open. I ran dell diagnostics and nothing showed up.

Sidewinder X3 Freezes Up Randomly

My sidewinder x3 is freezing up for several minutes at a time. It doesn't seem to affect any other processes. My cursor just stops moving and the on-the-fly sensitivity changer won't work either. After a while the mouse starts working again by itself. Re-plugging the mouse has no effect. I have another optical usb mouse that works flawlessly in the same ports as the sidewinder. The mouse is brand new and it has been doing this ever since i purchased it. Im running windows 7 64-bit. Has anyone else encountered the same problem? What solved it?

Computer Randomly Freezes In Any Program

Need to reboot after every freeze up. Just installed win7 on new pc. After running sfc/scannow it found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Cbs log read: . Mcbuilder.exe do not match actual file [l:26{13}]"mcbuilder.exe".could not reproject corrupted file }]"mcbuilder.exe" . Source file in store is also corrupted. Chkdsk came up with no problems. Win7 running fine on my other older computer (also 32bit). If anyone would give me some suggestions that would be great.

Win 7 Hangs Up / Freezes Randomly

I just bought a dell studio 1749 with windows 7 64 bit. Randomly a program will lock up. After about 30 seconds or so the program will say it is not responding. If i right click on the program the whole program will turn a transparent white. This happens with many programs including ie, firefox, and windows explorer. I contacted dell and they did some simple maintenance but that didn't fix anything. I re-installed windows 2 times but it still didn't fix the problem. After all of this dell sent a technician to swap out hard drives. That still didn't fix the problem. It seems that if i have the battery plan on performance it helps but doesn't solve the problem.

Pc Freezes Randomly When Going Into Hibernation Mode

Occasionally when shutting the computer down in hibernation mode, the screen will go black, but the lights on the computer will remain on. This lasts until i force the computer to shutdown by holding the power button, no matter how long i wait. It does not happen all the time, but enough to be annoying. I have a toshiba satellite laptop that came with windows vista that i upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Gain, it does not happen all the time, so i do not know if there is a specific trigger, but i would like to know if there is something that can fix it.

Remote Desktop Connection Randomly Freezes

My new dell xps 8100 with win 7 64-bit: rdp randomly freezes when connected to my work pc which has win 7 32-bit. I had win 7 32-bit on my old pc and never had a problem. Now the new pc randomly freezes during the rdp session. I say random because it will freeze during every session but it may be a few seconds or a few minutes before it freezes. If i wait for approx 3 minutes, it will unfreeze for a random length of time before freezing again. Any suggestions?

Wmp Video Playback Freezes Randomly

Setup: windows 7 ultimate x64 clean install, asus m5w dh deluxe mobo, intel dual core 6420 2. 13ghz, 4mb ram, 2 seagate barracuda hard disks 0. 5 & 1. 5tb, nvidia geforce 8800 gtx 768mb (latest x64 driver 195. 62).

When i play videos (mostly dvds or legal ripped dvds), playback will sometime freeze my whole system for 3 to 4 minutes (always the same duration). Sometimes i can play a whole movie without any freeze, at other times it can freeze as early as 10 or 20 minutes into the movie, or as late as 1h30m after the start.

I use mostly built-in wmp12 for playback, but i noticed the same behavior with vlc or kmp players. It also happened once with the miro player, and it also happens when playing wmas on wmp. I disabled all other applications or unnecessary services at some stage, to no avail. This machine has a dual boot with vista ultimate x32 on the smaller disk, but the same playbacks work just fine.

There is absolutely no error in any event log, and i really wonder why this should happen only to windows 7 (x64?). How can i debug this, and how can i fix it? I am starting a new topic for this, as other similar topics do not seem relevant to these symptoms. The weird thing is that the system always resumes after that 3-4 minutes freeze. The only thing is that the wmp playback seems to need to catch up with that delay, video and sound are kind of accelerated and not in sync for a while.

The system is partially responsive during the freeze too: i can see the play button bar when i hover with the mouse over the wmp window, the clock still counts the minutes in the taskbar, at least until i try to click on them: then the donut mouse icon replaces the arrow, and the clock does not change time anymore.

Upgrade On Dell Studio Xps 420

Trying to upgrade from vista on dell studio xps 420. The windows 7 operating system install disk will not auto launch and kicks the disk out of the drive after it scans from "my computer". I then get the insert disk message. Before attempting to install my windows 7 upgrade to my vista machine, i did all the uninstalls called out in the advisory scan. After uninstalling, i could no longer see my dvd drive in windows explorer or in "my computer".

I did a restore and again removed software. I then got an error 32. It seemed as if itunes had something to do with the missing drive. The update still would not load. If i selected the drive, it would scan, then the drive bay would open and i would get a "insert disk". The drive will read and write fine. Evey time i would do a driver update on the drive, i would get the best installed driver was present message.

Dell Studio Display Driver Crashing

I have had a dell studio 1537 laptop for almost a year now, and i installed windows 7 around christmastime. Since then, i have had trouble running a few of my games that worked perfectly fine before. The screen will go black, and the lappy will freeze for a few moments before returning with a bubble message that says "your display adapter has stopped working and has recovered". The card is the standard integrated mobile intel 45 express chipset and it says my driver is up to date. What to do?

Dell Studio 1555 Wireless Problem

I have a new dell studio 1555 laptop. Out of box worked okay, but eventually unable to connect using wireless unless i am sitting and using it in room directly below router. Even then i can have slow connection and at times can't connect. Had time warner cable check router, new router and working fine on tech's laptop. Called dell-they had me reinstall drivers. Still not fixed. Do i really have to pay for tech support for what i have been told is a windows 7 problem with a brand new computer?  This has been a very frustrating problem.

No Sound Dell Studio 1557 64-bit

No sounds on windows 7. I have a dell studio 1557 (64-bit) with windows 7 installed when i bought it last november. I used it without any problems until about february, when suddenly sound started not to work at all. Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem but running even a simple program (such as sound recorder or playing a wmv file using windows player) wouldn't work. I tried system restore as a last resort and it fixed the problem. For a while. It reappeared again after some time, and i fixed it again that way, and again and again. So i am wondering if this has any easy fix, and whether any programs might have compatibility issues and cause this?

Dell Studio 1737 Horizontal Lines

I just installed windows 7 on this dell studio 1737. I was using the pre-installed windows graphics driver, but am now using mobile intel(r) 4 series express chipset family drivers. Here is an example of the problem i am having at it's worst.

http://lh4. Ggpht.com/_8ex_rjq_ii4/tbesz6ptd4i/aaaaaaaaagq/y40jpm80mds/video%20problem%201.png

Now, i just discovered tonight that switching to 16-bit colours will fix the problem entirely, and still leaves windows working great, so i can live with that. But i am worried in case this is a hardware problem, in which case, i'm pretty screwed, right? Given that this isn't a graphics card, it is an integrated chip. Thanks for any help. Edit: this computer has worked fine on vista for about a year now, with no display problems in that time. It has only just happened, right after i installed 7.

Dell Studio 1537 Infrared Receiver Problem

How do i get my dell studio 1537 laptop, with win7 pro, and the "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" driver to recognize my rc6 xbox 360 universal remote control?

I have a dell studio 1537 laptop, with a built-in rc6 ir port. The "microsoft ehome infrared transceiver" is listed in my device manager. The "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" is listed in my device manager. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing each, several times, with reboots between.
I've tried the "update driver software" several times for each.

No matter what i do, i cannot get windows media center to move when i use the remote. The rc6 xbox universal remote works perfectly on the xbox in a different room. Windows media center navigates fine with the keyboard. I do not want to have to plug in an external usb ir receiver - i want to use the one that is built in to the laptop. Is there something i'm missing? Does anyone know any other websites that could help me with this?

Dell Studio 1749 Touchpad Scrolling Problem

Recently my laptop, dell studio 1749 lost it's proper ip address for wireless. I couldn't get a resolution to the problem by working with the router support people or internet provider people (should called dell). But i did get help from someone much more computer savy than me who fixed it by reinstalling, i guess pretty much everything. The computer really works fine now, with wireless connectivity, the only thing i no longer have is the capability of using the touchpad to swipe to scroll instead of using the scrollbar. How do i get that back? Windows 7 home premium. Is it a driver that didn't get reinstalled? How do i do that?  Should i try it myself if that's the case?

Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.

Outlook.exe Problem With Visual Studio 2008

Ever since i got windows 7 i have been looking for a way to stop outlook 2003 from interfering with the rest of my work. When i boot up, outlook is started as a process by sync center so that it can synchronize my mobile device. Until now, the only problem that this had caused was the fact that
This allowed outlook to keep giving me reminder dialogs. That was annoying, but at least i was able to close them when they popped up. But over the past couple days i started spending some more time using visual studio 2008 again, and it has said not responding in the title bar 2 or 3 times already. I decided to look at the details this time, and here is what they said:

Description: a problem caused this program to stop interacting with windows.

Problem signature:
Problem event name: apphangxprocb1
Application name: devenv.exe
Application version: 9. 0. 21022. 8
Application timestamp: 47317b3d
Hang signature: b92f
Hang type: 288
Waiting on application name: outlook.exe
Waiting on application version: 11. 0. 8312. 0

If the online privacy statement is not available, please read our privacy statement offline: c:windowssystem32en-userofflps.txt

The only part of this that even gave me any idea as to where to start for solving the problem was the fact that the "waiting on application name" value was "outlook.exe", which was open only as a process as i mentioned earlier. I am not sure how this (assuming it is) is related to the problem, so i was hoping someone could help me. The only guess i can come up with (although i don't know how to test or fix it if it is correct) is that outlook.exe was trying to send a reminder dialog while something else was happening. I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. Hopefully someone can help
Me fix this.
