Computer hangs during the transfer of 16 jpeg files.

Recently, I replaced my Toshiba Satellite M40 PATA hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP3.  Subsequently, I find transfer more than 16 jpeg files (approx. 1 MB each) at the same time causes the computer freezes.  I have to shut down the computer and restart and sometimes the computer is 'always' Hung/frozen after restarting Windows (mouse move no keys, ctrl + alt + delete work does produce no action) which necessitated my stop down and restart the computer again.

This problem occurs during various methods of transfer-to transfer pictures from my card SD using the scanner and camera or Nikon transfer software, trying to copy and paste pictures from the SD in an empty folder, and the problem occurs even when I try to spend more than 16 images from a folder in another.  I tried to transfer images from a folder with the computer in safe mode and the problem occurs when I try to transfer a little more than 16 images at once.  (my SD card, has about 60 images on that.)  There is no error message or any other message - the computer simply crashes.

I did not have this problem before reinstalling XP.  There seems to be no limit to the size of the transfer that I could perform. I can't wait to find out how I can remedy this problem.  I am familiar with writing code, check the registry, etc, but I'm good enough following the simple procedures.  Thank you for your help.

Hi RobertMorouney,

Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community.

In addition, how are you doing today?

You have a problem with the computer hung on the transfer of files on Windows XP. This can be very frustrating for you, and I appreciate the efforts you have put in. Let us work together as a team and try to get this fixed number.

Method 1-

Step 1-

Trying to transfer files in Mode without failure.

Check out the link-

To start the computer in safe mode

Note: Make sure that you get the computer back to Normal Mode after performing all the troubleshooting steps.

Proceed to step 2, if the problem does not occur in Mode without failure.

Step 2-

I recommend you perform the clean boot.

Placing the computer in a boot minimum state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. You must perform the steps in the article-

How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State

Note: Make sure that get you the computer to a Normal startup after performing all the troubleshooting steps.

Method 2-

I wish that you run a Chkdsk command on the computer.

Check out the link-

How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP

Note: The Chkdsk command will try to fix bad sectors on the hard drive. All the data on these sectors may be lost. The computer could go to a State no boot as well. Proceed at your own risk.

We know if you need help. We will be happy to help you. We, at tender Microsoft to excellence.

    Because your computer has been manufacturer Sept 2011, there Legacy BIOS.  The latest vBIOS UEFI was initiated at the HP units at end of 2012.  That said, either you stay with a Legacy BIOS GPU card, or choose a dual hybrid card BIOS.  The GTX 660, or GTX 670, all of which are two high-end of the legacy card would be far superior to the GTX 750Ti.   All the current hype is looking for a lower quality card, the 750Ti, based on the more low power and some GTX offering a BIOS hybrid via Select manufacturer.

    Hi there @ldgie25.

    That the Forums are with you!  I understand that, after a few updates, your computer does not start correctly and freezes on the HP logo.   I'm happy to help you with this.

    Since it was started once, but then had a blue error screen, I suggest using the computers HP - use Microsoft System Restore (Windows, 10, 8).   Follow the instructions in the section «restore your computer when Windows is unable to boot normally»  See if it will start normally after the restoration. If yes then you probably want to prevent the offending update to install again.

    Please see the following for how to do this:

    How to temporarily prevent an update for driver reinstallation of Windows 10 -

    You should check this number against the future reports. It will not reduce, but if it increases, you need to back up on external media and replace the disk.

  • Windows 7 hangs during the transfer of data from one drive to another

    This problem was pestering me for a long time, well over a year.

    When I transfer data from one disk to the other (generally large amounts), the computer crashes and I get a blue screen or it just restarts.

    Initially, I thought it was a faulty hard drive, so I replaced that, but the problem persisted. I ran diagnostics of smart drive on all my drives and no problems have been picked up.

    Then I replaced my RAM assuming there that all. The problem continues.

    Then I replaced the video card. The same problem.

    I then upgraded to windows 10 and the problem became more acute, so I rolled back to windows 7.

    The SSD has the latest firmware, the latest graphics card drivers.

    I think now it is one of the following two issues:

    Either my SSD drive that contains the operating system or motherboard?

    Someone at - it ideas of how to diagnose precisely this problem or how to solve it? Would contribute to a new facility?

  • The computer hangs during the communication via a serial port

    I developed a code in LabVIEW 2011 to connect with the XY stage. It's actually two steps mounted perpendicularly. The installer of the system is that a (made by the same manufacturer as the stadium) gamepad is connected to the USB port on the computer if a USB to Serial converter. A step is daisy chanied to the controller and the other stage Garland at the first stage.

    To our application had to continually check the status and position of the steps X and Y. Because the joystick also returns responses when a request is sent to all devices, I need to send applications individually; for example. one request per order per device, making it a total of 4 orders. It takes care of the error returned by the controller. The problem, however, is that after a while the freezing of the program or the computer stops and restarts. It is located about 13 minutes (on average) after the start of the program. It also happens even when no command is sent to the devices. I put 50 ms delay before each send two commands (position and status) by device. Basically, the application waits for 50ms before sending two commands for X stage and the receipt of the response and when everything is done with X stage, he expects another 50 ms to do the same for step Y. Should this procedure goes on until the application is stopped. But as I said, there is a problem. Now, I guess the problem is that serial port buffer overflows. He chose to increase the delay time, but if it works to solve the problem, then I have no choice!

    I would appreciate any thoughts and comments!

    After a lot of time to experiment, I am convinced that the issue was with adapter Profilic.

    What is the brand and model of your computer?

    This problem may be caused for the following reasons:

    Conflicts of hardware/software.

    System files are corrupt.

    You can see the steps from the following thread that was answered by MikeSimmonsUK on November 7, 2012, that will help us solve the problem.

    Windows 8 updates stuck at 13%. (NOTE: laptop HP - audio drivers)

    If the problem persists, you can also see the steps in the following Microsoft article: Windows Update crashes when installing updates in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista


    When you perform the System Restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    When running at Refresh: the applications that came with your PC or you installed on Windows Store will be reinstalled, but all the apps you have installed other Web sites and DVD is deleted. Windows puts a list of applications on your desktop after you refresh your PC.

  • [SOLVED] Windows 7 hangs during the "you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer.

    I was recently on my computer and running windows 7 with happiness and problem free, until I downloaded a file from the internet. When I opened it, windows asked me if I want to allow this program allow changes. However, there is the rub. When I click on 'Yes', the message will disappear, but the computer hangs at the screen has gone even a light, tinted gray, with all of the programs that are still running in the background. It freezes for about 2 minutes and then decides to return to normal, free for me to return to work and navigation. However, the program that I have originally intended to be performed by him to make changes didn't work at all. Confused, I ran over and over again, but with very little success, and the problem continued to appear. I tried to launch a clean boot, but that doesn't help more. Can someone help me please? Thanks :)

    Thank you for the support, but I solved the problem.

    I did a system restore, and it seems that a microsoft critical update was the culprit of all this? In any case, everything seems to work now and thanks again for all the support and help, I appreciate it a lot :)
