Hi,

I am a new computer user. I have a very irritating problem, with my desktop now a days. I am not a much heavy user such as graphics or sort of these things. But my computer sometimes freezes in some states. My keyboard, mouse none of them are working. I have to restart my computer. In this manner I lost my some valuable works.

I need to fix this problem but don’t know how. One thing I should mention is that my operating system is 6 months old.

Can anyone help me to solve this boring problem?

Dear Sammy,

This irritating state of computer is called hang. The computer freezes and does not work as it should be. This is a very common problem to computer users. There are few reasons behind this. These are:

1. Over heating the processor/motherboard. Sometimes the processor cooling does not work properly. In this case the processor overheated beyond a particular temperature and can not work properly.

2. Problem with Hard disk drives. Some times the needed windows file for your particular processing is missing due to faulty hard drive. In such situations the computer can not work properly.

3. RAM problem. Sometimes your RAM is not sufficient for your processing, in such situations the computer hangs.

In your case, RAM is not probably the problem. Your problem may be the first one or the second one. For solving these problems you need to do following steps:

1. You need to check your processor cooling fan. This fan essentially needs to work properly and clean. If not working properly than get the fan replaced. You also need to check the extra fans in your casing if there any.

2. To solve this particular problem, you need to run the windows utilities such as scan disk. If there are any bad sectors than need to be repaired. If it is not possible to repair bad sectors than you need to replace your hard disk.

These are hardware causing problems. There are may be some software problems too. As you said your operating system is 6 months old than you can set up a new operating system. Some times computer hangs due to a lot of virus. Do you use any anti virus software? If not than need a good one. Hopefully, these solutions will fix your problem up to use your computer without any interruption. Thank you.

It's an easy solution for you to fix this problem. Your operating system is 6 months old, so please don't be late. First you save all your needed document's, then  just reinstall your operating system.

Everything will be fine, otherwise all your files may be lost. 

Come on hurry up!

Dear Sammy,

The problem you mentioned is a too common problem for computer users. It may cause harm to your data too. It occurs due to many reasons, such as hardware problem, software problem etc. There may too much virus or very harmful virus can be cause of this kind of problem.

Virus is too much harmful, as well as a very common thing in computers. You need to prevent your computer from virus, to use it without any interruption. There are too many Antivirus software available in the market. There are also too many free Antivirus software in websites. You can download and use as you like. But one very important thing you must keep in your mind is that Antivirus software must be updated on a regular basis. Without updating the software it is useless and may also be harmful.

Virus is a one kind of file which may occur several problems in your computer. It can harm the exe files or w32 files, which can even damage your operating system. Virus may allocate too much space in your hard disk drive, which can make your computer heavy to run easily which may cause the freezing problem or hang. So beware of virus and use computer happily. Thank you.

Dear Sammy,

Freezing computer is called computer hang. There are too many reasons of hanging computer.  Also there are many ways to solve these problems. Sometimes it is even worse that  the start menu or keyboard, none of them are working. In such case you can control the computer with task manager. You can open task manager with most famous combination Ctrl+Alt+Delete. This combination opens task manager for you.

You can end application which is not responding. This sort of not responding application mainly causes the problem. You can shut down your computer from the task manager also. Shut down menu appears on task manager window. This is the case of windows XP operating system. You can choose log off menu from the task manager window. This also helps you for solving the hang problem. But this menu is only available in Windows Vista and Windows 7. This will solve your problem for that instant. Thank you.
