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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Computer Locks Up Randomly

Recently my computer has been locking up randomly. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it - sometimes it locks up while doing something intensive (like running a graphics-rich game), and other times it locks up when simply sitting idle or typing up a word document. I've tried everything i can to see what the problem is, and i've come up with nothing. I've stress/stability tested my cpu, my gpu, my ram, and my power supply.

I've removed my ide hard disk drive, because the event logger said it was having problems with it. I've tried different power supplies, gpus, and even a different (though same model) motherboard. Nothing turns up any problems - they all test out just fine. The error the event logger shows me is one of two thing.

Either this:-

Computer Randomly Shuts Down

I checked the "similar questions" options and didn't none of the solutions seemed to apply to me, so here goes!:So i've had this computer for a while now (i would say about two years). It's a home-built made by a computer-savvy friend of mine and it's been fantastic. It still has high marks in everything but my hard drive. I'm some-what of a gamer, and it's been running games incredibly well. So i decided to move to taiwan to teach english. I really didn't want to miss out on pc gaming for a year(+), so i brought this sucker with me.

I get to my apartment - no 3-prong outlets!  Get a cheap 2-to-3 prong adapter, buy a fancy new screen, and voila, computer seems to be working!  It made the flight with me! (Yes, i had to check it, i had the airline people put tons of "fragile" stickers on it, but that was probably mistake number one, even though i had the original box, and even though i still tried to keep it from getting damaged by putting in other clothes to hopefully brace the shocks. Nyway, so i'm listening to some itunes, for about an hour and then suddenly. Shut down. Oh well, i'll just turn it on.

Itunes. Shut down. I plug in my first-video-gen ipod to update new songs and what not? Shut down. I also brought my laptop here with me so after several more instances of random shut down, i focus on my laptop, and say goodbye until i can bring it to a repair shop or something in the states or have someone with computer knowledge take a look at it. My laptop dies (it was old and had some liquid damage that i guess finally killed it). So now i have to use my desktop. Hey, it's been working ok, even updating my ipod with no problems!

Oh wait, unless i'm playing music at the same time as updating it. So i just don't do that anymore! My computer-savvy friend recommends that i get a diagnostic program to see why i'm having problems. I get this thing called sisoftware sandra lite 2010 from cnet after reading their enthusiastic review. I start up the program and it starts checking. Something. I can't remember, had to do with running calculations and the computer shuts off.

Almost immediately after the test starts. I download and install starcraft 2. Successfully!  "Wow it stayed on long enough to complete it without shutting down! Maybe it's better!"Try to play starcraft 2 - shuts down. Damn! What is wrong with my computer! I see that the little icon at the bottom right has a red x circle on it. I click on it for the first time. "Troubleshoot a problem with your computer. "Oh, might that fix the problem?"Your computer might be encountering a memory problem. " Hmm, hopefully because that's easy to fix, right? Just buy new memory!So i let the windows memory diagnostic test do it's thing.

It restarts the computer and "oo, that's a new thing" the test starts. 1%. 2%. Shut down!So. Is it my memory? If it was my memory wouldn't the test finish?Is it my cpu?  There is a big fan covering the cpu and it moved slightly after the flight.could that have affected the processor?Is it the fact that it's not technically grounded even though it's plugged into a seemingly ok power strip?Is it something else? The motherboard? The fact that it's 110v here and not the us standard 120v?I've also noticed that i can browse the internet ok, but if i try to full-screen a video, it shuts down! 

But if i don't full screen the video, there are no problems. It's also really hot and humid here, and i don't have air conditioning yet. Is it overheating? This case is a coolermaster cosmos, it's supposed to be pretty good at keeping everything cool what is going on!?

Computer Goes Into Standby Mode Randomly

My laptop, which is one month old, has started going into stand by mode randomly. It always happens when i am typing. There is no rhyme or reason. Sometimes i can work for hours without it happening. Other times it happens every few minutes. I have checked for viruses, and there is no problem. It is not a battery or power issue, as it happens when i am working on the computer.

The computer worked fine for 3 weeks, then this started happening about 1 week ago. I had not downloaded any software in the few days prior to this happening.

Random Shut Down / Computer Randomly Shutting Down

I have a sony vaio vgn-cs190j. I upgraded to windows 7 professional 64bit about 4 months ago and am now having issues with my computer randomly shutting down. It will instantly freeze up for like a second and just shut off to immediate power off. There is no bsod or a restart. It just instantly shuts down. It has happened while doing flash applets, surfing the web, and playing games on my computer. It even happened one time while i was on microsoft word. There is also the occasional occurrence where the computer will shut down immediately shutdown before or during start up.
Does anyone know how to fix this or if there is a known problem of this happening?

Computer Randomly Crashes - Screen Will Go To Black Then White

I recently installed windows 7 on my laptop and it was working great until it started crashing.

At first it only crashed when i was using pretty demanding programs but now it sometimes just randomly crashes when using music players etc, and i lose all my work.

When it crashes i'll just be working then the screen will go to black then white then flash back to the original screen, and it will do something like that for about 5 seconds then it shuts down and restarts.

When it turns back on i get a message that simply says windows has has an unexpected shutdown then it likely gives me some options to choose or something. I don't remember exactly.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb

Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Problem signature:
Problem event name: bluescreen

Computer Freezes While Downloading Videos From Youtube

A few days ago, while having a video conference with my friend from spain(i'm in ireland), my pc froze completely and nothing worked but the hard reboot. Now it's happening almost every time i try to download any . Flv video. Sometimes i can see . Flv videos for 1 hour, some times for 5 minutes before i have to reboot the machine again.

I was thinking it was firefox browser  but by my surprise it happened with explorer too. I was googling the subject and some forums suggest update drivers. And they are updated and still the same. Another sites blame on windows 7, but i bought my laptop in december2009 and never had this issue before. It's happening since 21st of march 2010. Why is faulty now? I've been on the same web pages always, no hacker's or weird sites. I'd really appreciate if some one can help me out with this issue before is getting worse.

My features are:
Windows 7 home premium
Hewlett packard hp g61 notebook pc
Pentium dual core cpu t4300 @ 2. 10 ghz
4. 00 gb ram
64-bit operating system

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

Do You Want This Program To Change Settings On Your Computer

Do you want this program to change settings on your computer? Yes. You must be an administrator to run this program for the first time. This is my problem when i try to run a game. I am the administrator on my computer. My computer game disc will not let me play because it says i am not the administrator so i cannot allow the program to change settings on my computer. I am the administrator on my computer. Geek squad said there is something wrong with the game program. So i exchanged it and it still wont work.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?

Randomly Rebooting

I recently upgraded my computer hardware, and replaced winxp with win7 home premium oem 64-bit. Since this upgrade, my windows reboots at random intervals. Sometimes the screen shows random pixels before the reboot but not always. Sometimes it shows the blue screen of death (saying "attempt was made to write on a read-only memory").

Windows' own memory-test says everything is fine. I had memtest86+ run for 8 hours straight: no problem, no reboot. So i think this is not a hardware issue, since the computer keeps running for long periods of time if windows is not started.

Windows has been reinstalled already, all drivers have been updated, windows has been updated, norton internet security has been uninstalled. The problem still remains. I've run out of ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here's the complete hardware profile:

Processor: intel core i3-530 2. 93ghz
Memory: corsair twinx ddr3 1333mhz dhx cl9 kit
Videocard: integrated
Directx-version: directx 10
Motherboard: asus p7h55d-m evo
Harddrive: samsung 1000gb f3 7200rpm 32mb sata2 hd103sj
Power: corsair 450w

Pc Restarts Randomly

Okay so i have a relatively new velocity micro gaming computer that is about 3 weeks old and i have recently been experiencing one big problem. My computer just randomly restarts for no apparent reason (usually when i leave it alone for like half an hour to watch tv or something) and when it starts back up it gives an error message like windows did not shut down properly and it gives me the option to enter safe mode. I am currently running the paid version of norton internet security and i have already scanned my computer for viruses (full scan not quick scan).

In addition i have updated windows with all the recommended settings and updated my nvidia gt 220 video card driver from their website. I have performed all sorts of scans but i don't see any real problem that could be causing it. I am pretty sure it is not power-related because i'm using a good outlet with a surge panel. I also went into my system settings and unchecked the thing that says restart on system failure, but the problem still persists.

Getting Bsod Randomly While Using Various Programs

So i upgraded my laptop computer (toshiba satellite) from windows vista 64 to window 7 64, and at first there were no problems. However, as i work, occasionally a bsod will come up. After the computer restarts itself, it shows up with the "find solution to problem" window:

Also, on the blue screen, at the top it says pfn_list_corrupt, then it proceeds to "file dump"? I have tried updating my drivers with windows 7 ones; i've tried cleaning the registry (with regdefense). However, neither of these have done anything to fix my problem. This is very much a problem, because my computer can restart itself without warning. Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

Win 7 Crashes Randomly

Recently my win 7x64 pro started crashing randomly (and now it crashes extremely often, but still at random) like if you pulled the plug. No bsod, no reboot, no crash-dump, nothing. The system only tells me that it didn't shut down properly.

The pc is a asus aspire m7711 (core2quad q8300, 8gb ram, geforce gt130), nothing clocked, no modifications. I've updated win, updated all drivers (except the ms-teredo-tunneling software, for the win update can't find any driver), turned off several stuff in the hardware manager, that could cause the problem and finally reinstalled win 7 it still crashes, sometimes just a few min after i turned it on but in safe mode the pc is stable. It only crashed once, that was some time ago and in user mode it crashed about 80 times in a week.

And the pc still has warranty, so i won't void it by opening the case. I see this as the last option, because i want to know what causes the problem.

Laptop Randomly Hibernates

i'm new to this site and have been experiencing my laptop hibernating randomly the past few days while i am using it. I could be working on anything in my computer, like browsing the web, checking email, etc. , And bam! Hibernates. I know it's not a virus because i have mcafee and windows defender both active and they scan my laptop bi-weekly.

I've asked a few friends at school, and they've given a few possible suggestions; the memory that is being used, or the time i'm using it, (after startup), but i've came to the assumption that it could be both. By both, i mean that once the processor passes a certain memory usage, and a certain time after then, is where the problem could jump from. Since i've thought of that solution, i've tried using less programs together, (e.g. Only the browser or only windows live mail), and as i've been using this solution, it has rarely hibernated w/o notice.
