Hi Ganiguni,
     If your memory is too low, your computer can't work properly specially when you are playing online games.
And with online games you can also get viruses. It will cause of computer hang ups. So, I'm giving you some solutions to fix your problem. Hope that with this, your problem will resolve.

Most reason for computer hang ups is having a problem in your memory RAM. Remove the memory Ram and clean it before you insert it.
If you have dual or more memory Ram, do it individually. Don't insert them together. Check them one by one just to make sure if one them have a problem.
If some of it doesn't work remove it and replace. By cleaning your memory RAM.
Follow these steps:
* Remove your memory RAM on your laptop then clean it using eraser.
* Rub the golden surface only and when your done with that.
* Get a soft cloth to clean the particles of eraser.
* Then insert it now to your computer.

Most reason why the computer hang up is because if there are many open programs and applications.
These remains in the memory, if it is too much for the memory to handle, it will hang.
Another reason too the computer hang up is of your internet connection, and you are running too many applications and opening many websites.
So, if you are multimedia user or a heavy internet user, then you are better upgrade your memory, at least 512Mb of memory.
And if you really love playing online games, make it 1Gb of memory.

If you are playing online games, you can also get viruses from them. Most symptoms of having viruses is computer automatically restart or hang ups.
So all you have to do is to scan your computer using updated anti-virus. Make sure that your anti-virus is updated and update it regularly so you can avoid viruses.

Sometimes playing games on your computer for a long hours makes the cause for this problem.

In the calendar, choose the day before when computer is working in a good condition.
*Click NEXT.
It will automatically restart your computer.

There is also solution for your problem using Disk cleanup.
Please follow this steps:
*Go to Start, All Programs,
*select Accessories,

There are several causes of the problem you are experiencing.

1.   Your computer may be infected with a virus i.e. one of the files of the DeSmuME game might be corrupted and this makes the computer freeze as it is unable to locate the file which most like might have been corrupted.

2.   Your VGA drivers might be too low or may need some update/repair.

In the case of a corrupted file, try installing a fresh copy of the game and secondly update your graphics (VGA) drivers.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ganiguni,

Here are a few things you might want to check that might be causing the issue.

1. Make sure that you are using the latest version of DeSmuMe. Latest version is 0.9.8. You can get it at

2. Turn off your Virus scanner. Since this is an open source application your anti Virus might detect it as a malicious file.

3. Go to "Config > Emulation Settings > Enable Advanced Bus-Level Timing"  – This is going to slow down the emulation of the game but will help you run most games.

If you still have issues with it you can go  here.
