Windows 7 32-Bit, my PC freezes randomly and lagging.

Since I turned off my computer by pressing the power button, it started to freeze during execution of programs. I have to go to Safe Mode and restart my PC x 3 to be able to run my PC smoothly. Help, please!


Blocking by using the btn pwr is not the proper way to shut down a PC, you use the start > Shutdown to win first

  • Satellite Pro R850-15F - freezing randomly and the fan speeds up


    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro R850-15F who gave me four years in refurbished condition and so it is quite old.
    I have recently installed Windows 10 and things seemed to work very well.

    However, last week, I noticed that at least once a day my laptop freezes randomly and immediately the internal fan accelerates, becomes much stronger and a cold air. Whenever this happens, I turned off the laptop and turn it back on it.

    After that, it works normally again until the next time it freezes. I don't know anything about computer hardware, but I suspect that it is a problem of series and I wanted to get some advice in case my laptop is close to dying.

    If anyone has any help or advice or suggestions to solve the problem, then I would be extremely grateful if you would contact me.

    Hope to hear from someone soon,


    On this virtual path, it is not easy to say what the problem is here. To me, it looks like problem with some background process that as a result of extremely high CPU usage that locks the phone whole.
    High CPU usage means more heat in such situation the fan starts to run a lot faster.

    Have you noticed this behavior with a specific action or the use of certain applications?

  • Windows 7 64-bit mouse pauses/freezes/stutters often accompanied by an event sound Windows


    Erratic mouse behavior. Mouse hanging, the gel for a full second or more, accompanied by a Windows event sound, generally. Sometimes, there is just a slight pause and no noise Windows event. Sometimes the mouse acceleration changes after freezing. Sometimes, more rarely, my mouse will be dropped by the operating system... the laser light on the underside turns off and I have to unplug the mouse and plug it in again so he can be recognized.

    What happens almost all the time. I want to use Windows mainly to play a game, World War II online: Battleground Europe. It is a shooting mmo first-person. This problem is annoying enough on the desktop. Unsuable for FPS games. I plan to have to file using Windows 7 64 bit for now.

    I have this problem as soon as Windows 7 64-bit.

    Steps in my last attempt to solve the problem.

    I was looking not all parameters of the BIOS at once at the beginning. For example, I have disabled "Intel Speedstep" to see if that would solve the question. Then restarted in BIOS and disabled the C1E function when I discovered that disabling Speedstep alone does not resolve the issue. ECT, ect...

    I have not installed Norton Internet Security 2010 for awhile while I tried various solutions of Workaround available and listed below in case this is the question. No difference, so NIS 2010 is now installed.

    Remember, that this behavior occurs that when Windows 7 64 bit is installed properly.

    (1) clean install of Windows 7 64-bit, for the third time now

    (4) installed Windows updates

    NOTE: I have not installed the latest four updates for now, three of them are security updates have a publication Date: 09/02/2010. I decided to not install these due to a mistake of "Circular kernel context logger" that I already saw in the viewer of the event log, recorded by "Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing" event ID: 2 now, I'm not having this issue.

    NOTE: I also installed a driver in option, the ACPI ATK110 driver, which installs the following file--> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ASACPI.sys - he has listed as the version of the file 1043.2.15.37 and dated 29/03/2005. In a previous installation of Windows 7 64 bit, I downloaded an update of the present of Asus contained in a file/ utility and installed. I started the utility and he gave me the message that my system was not supported by "Asus Cool ' n Quiet. It's ASACPI.sys file was dated some time in 2009, rather than in 2005. Since my last Windows 7 install, I have currently a bit the 2005 version proposed by Windows Update installed. I don't know if this file is to load or used by Windows 7 64 bit. But I wonder...

    Is this a problem?

    Hello again,

    Can I have found the solution that worked for me. It is probably too early to tell, I'll need more time to be sure. But in case he solved the problem for me, I'll post what seems to have worked as suggested on a post, I came across from another forum. Consider a guy who tried many suggestions, maybe that's the answer. Heck, I had tried a few other things that I have said in my original post. But in any case, so far, my system and mouse seem to work very well on the desktop for the last hour and a half. I have not tried yet game.

    (1) uninstall the Windows Update KB977074 (January 2010 stability and reliability update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2).

    (2) reboot and leave your system for a couple / few minutes after the restart.

    (3) just in case... Restart again, and then reinstall the KB977074.

    (4) restart to complete the installation.

    January 2010 stability and reliability update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 info and the download link-->

    Best regards and good luck,

  • Windows 7 64-bit Adobe Reader 9.3 and IE8 - opening PDF in the tab and then says closing tab causes IE8

    I've been running Win7 64 bit for quite awhile now and only up to what a few weeksa go started having problems with Adobe Reader continues to ask me how I wanted to read a document and click here to save the settings, and don't ask me again.  The box has never worked and it will continue to ask me questions constantly everytime I open a new PDF file.

    I finally understood how to get rid of the nagging dialog box but now everytime I open a new tab with a PDF file in it and then close the tab, IE8 crashes and tries to pick up the tab.  It's never happened before.

    What is the cause and how to fix this?  Please notify.

    Upgrade to 9.3 this morning and the problem remains.  Tried to uninstall all traces of Adobe Reader and reinstall but still no dice.

    Problem happens also to home on a similar computer running Win 7 64 bit and use an earlier version of Acrobat and Adobe Reader.

    Try this:

    Right-click on the IE8 icon in the taskbar. A menu pop ups upward. Right click again on 'Internet Explorer'. Then left click on "Run as Administrator". I had another problem with the drive and this has solved the problem. The problem I had was that I couldn't save PDFs in IE8. This solves this problem.

    Kaspersky could easily be the problem. Disable it simply will not stop it from loading songs of
    itself so its best to uninstall. Uninstall, and then run the tool of suppression and/or special instructions
    prevent the remnants left that can cause strange problems. Recommendations for use while
    tests, even better permanently.

    Kaspersky - removal tool

    List of tools to clean/uninstall anti-malware programs


    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leaving Standard, Web, and
    Operation of the network.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Two versions of Avast are available 5.x and 4.8 x

    Avast - home - free - 5.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK

    Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
    and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
    Finish those you don't use).

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.   <-->  <-->

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    I hope this helps.

  • Windows 7 update causes computer to freeze randomly

    I have a Lenovo T500. It's a computer refurbished who came to me with the firmware of a Lenovo.

    I am a student and I bought the edition of window 7 students. Since I installed it, the computer crashes on me at very random times. At first, I thought it was the bios and so I updated this. No luck. The computer hangs when it is connected or when using the battery. Sometimes this will happen in stages where Excel crashes but I still might be able to click on other programs. But when I try to save, close other programs or restart then the computer crashes completely.

    I plan to do a clean Windows 7 install in case there is a conflict with some of the divers that Lenovo put on my computer. Is there anything else I should try first?

    (b) my laptop freezes after inactivity for 20-30 minutes, I have to remove the power cable and reconnect it to restart the computer

  • Windows XP 32 bit ceased to recognize plug and play devices.

    Recently, I had a virus and had to reinstall windows. After installation, I've updated all the drivers and Windows updates. My mouse, keyboard, monitor, and wireless adapter to work correctly. After about 3 weeks, I went to install my printer. I installed the hardware, but it could not connect to the printer. I followed the instructions of the manufacturer again and again but it never connects. His grateful sound because when I turn on the printer or offshore, I hear 'bing', but it doesn't connect. I used the "New hardware found" Wizard with the disc in the drive and it looks right and research, he never does the program on the disk. I tried to use the camera to Windows and the scanner Wizard with no luck.
    After that I gave up, I tried to use my camera, that has worked well until I reinstalled it and it happens "New hardware found" and the "new hardware detected" appears, but it does not recognize the CD, just look and watch for hours. I got fed up and finally bought a "plug and play" card reader SD and the bubble appears in the toolbar "new hardware found", but then the "new hardware found" stands and asks a disc! Its a PLUG and PLAY! There is no disc! The material is on the device! It's not my USB ports because he DOES not see something trendy and I checked Device Manager and he said his work without no problems found, but it does not connect to it. Does anyone have any info on what this might be? ANY help with this is greatly appreciated! Thank you

    Hi pressure,

    Peripheral Plug n Play need driver for the operation.

    PnP means that you do not have to restart the computer to install something.

    I suggest to update the drivers for the chipset of your motherboard and see if a firmware update is available for your BIOS.

  • My Windows XP GMA 3100 monitor goes black randomly and returns

    Can someone help me get rid of this nuisance? The connection has no problem. Recently my screen becomes black and returns to normal and usually takes a lot of time to come back :/ I can move my mouse and type using the keyboard and do normal stuff as usual. It seems that the monitor is the problem. Any advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Borrow another monitor and connect it to your PC, put your monitor on the other PC.  If your monitor keeps going in the dark on another PC then junk and replace it because it is defective.  If the borrowed monitor will Dim on your PC, then you have a video card hardware problem that should be checked.

    I ran SFC/scannow this evening and received an error message saying corrupted files had been found, but could not be fixed, and gave me this path to find the journal and view and/or correct the files.  I read a few articles in this community on how to access the logs as an administrator.  No instructions in all of the arrticles works, I denied access on any line to display the files and I can't have them, either.  My laptop Asus G74Sx actually works very well, these corrupt files are something that I should worry and spend hours and hours trying to coax my laptop to me as an administrator?  Can someone please tell me how to enter the newspaper and how to fix corrupted files?

    First step, run DISM to correct errors.  Instructions located in the underside of wiki

    Please run a check of system files (SFC) & DISM if you're on win 7 or higher 

    All instructions are in our Wiki article below... If you have any questions please ask us.

    Second step.  Re run SFC.  If errors occur in the log upload them on a single disc and we give a link to it in your next post
