I use a dual core 2 GHz processor and a 2 GB DDR2 RAM on my PC.
Recently I have been facing a problem that it freezes even when the processor is working at may be lower than half of it`s full speed.
It`s not for any specific programme.
Why is it so?
Why is my PC freezing?
- Windows Registry is corrupted.
- The drivers are corrupt or outdated.
- Computer is infected with a virus or malware.
- Hard drive or file system errors.
- Computer is in a bad location.
The Windows registry could become corrupted by a virus, Trojan horse or malware.lean it with a good registry cleaner.
If a computers drivers are out-dated or corrupt, it can have internal conflicts that will cause errors and crashes.
A computer is infected with a virus or malware, you could be in for a real heartbreak. Use a great antivirus software program, such as Norton 360.
If a computer freezes on startup, or anytime for that matter, the hard drive could become damaged. When those abrupt stops happen while the machine is writing to the hard drive, sectors can be permanently damaged PerfectDisk is a program can analyze your hard drive and record where any bad sectors are hiding.
A computer might be freezing because it’s located in a bad place. Computers need a dry, cool home.
Why is my PC freezing?
The cause of the problem can be anything. It can be due to a software you installed or a problem with the hardware. Try checking if you recently installed an application. If you did, then try uninstalling that application. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select the program you recently installed and click “Uninstall”.
Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system. When it is finished, exit CCleaner and restart the computer.
See if this works. If this doesn’t fix the problem, try using the System File Checker utility. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator” to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter.
When you are prompted for the Windows setup CD or DVD, insert your Windows setup CD or DVD on your optical drive then continue. Wait until it is complete. When it is finished, close the command prompt and restart the computer. See if this works. If you want to convert CCleaner to Pro, download the codes and follow the instructions.
