    Reasons for potential causes of computer slowness and freezing
    1. Your computer does not nave enough of free hard drive space
    2. Your PC requires a memory upgrade
    3. Your computer has been running for a long time without a reboot
    4. Computer’s hard drive corrupted or fragmented
    5. Too many applications running at the same time
    6. Your computer is infected with a virus or malicious program (malware)
    7. Fatal or not, hardware conflicts and outdated drivers
    8. Your version of Windows (or other platform you may be using) or other software is out of date.
    9. Computer or processor is overheating
    10. Hardware Failure

    Here are main reasons for “freezing computers”.

    1. Start with checking you mouse!
    We all have those days when we are so busy that the simplest things may not cross your mind. Sometimes it is not the PC: don’t forget to rule out issues with your mouse – perhaps the cable(if you still use it got unplugged from the source. Or if you use a wireless mouse, try changing the batteries. Sometimes it is that simple.

    When people refer to computer freezing, they typically mean that computer system is unresponsive to any user action, such as typing or using mouse on the desktop. In a nutshell, freezing means that nothing happens. Generally it does not mean that computer is broken, but rather that processor encountered an overload that cannot be handled. It can be a very frustrating experience, especially if you were working on something you did not have a chance to save yet.

    There are several common causes of freezes. In this article, we will look at the typical Windows system and reasons for it getting a chill!

    2. Overheating
    This is purely an environmental issue. Overheating can cause system freezes. The CPU is the great concern as it is extremely sensitive and integral to the functionality of the computer. Many computer users describe certain noise when the fan’s ball bearing goes out – similar to a hissing snake. The CPU can not withstand temperatures over it’s threshold for too long – that is why it is important to read manufacturer’s instructions for storage and operating conditions – and temperature (as well as humidity) are important for proper care. Always make sure that your computer’s vents are not blocked. There are also programs available to monitor the temperatures in Windows at idle and load, that would help you identify the overheating when it presents itself. If your working conditions are native to above average heat and humidity (as some industries require), there are options available for computer casing for harsh environments

    3. Driver Corruption or Errors
    Similar to overheating, hardware failure can cause a system freeze. Drivers are pieces of software that allow hardware devices to communicate with other hardware devices and the operating system. Drivers are being constantly used by the computer system, being at a high risk for failure. The best thing you can do for your drivers is to update them to the most current version – as soon as new version becomes available. Downloading and installing a driver update is recommended to find and install updates to your device drivers. If your computer freezes up randomly, it is also useful to check your registry for any faults.

    4. Software Errors
    Third-party software is the most common cause of a system freeze. The functions of some applications may attempt to perform actions or access resources that Windows cannot understand. If the operating system doesn’t understand something, it can get hung up and freeze. The best way to troubleshoot this possible cause is to update all third-party software that is installed on your computer. Testing the RAM is recommended, and make sure that you have a minimum of 10% of your disk space left free – it is a minimum level for Windows to use as virtual memory.

    5. Computer Viruses
    Sometimes computer freezing is a sign of your system being infected with the virus. Please or Register to view links to see if any of the symptoms for poor computer performance look familiar:

    • Inaccessible Disk Drives
    • No Response
    • Slow Performance
    • Slow Startup
    • Crashing (Hanging/Freezing)
    • Missing Files
    • Extra Files
    • Printer Issues
    • Unusual Error Messages
    • Increasing number Popups
    Make sure your antivirus software is up-to-date. Computer software, including antivirus programs, comes in such various shapes and forms, and are created to fit different needs in terms of size and budget

    Ah ok, have you check unnecessary programs running on the backend, you may check by installing ccleaner, under tools and startup check all the programs runs at the same time when your computer starts, disable them because run automatically.

    i already disabled unnecessary startup sir. nag run ako ng memory diagnostic at wala nmn error sa ram ko. napansin ko din na mejo bloated na yung 2 capacitor sa board ko pero di pa nmn naputok at nag bôôboot pa nmn ang pc ko. isa kaya itong dahilan?

    Try mo linisin ang gold plates/pin sa ram mo ng eraser ang kuminang ulit sya or maging light gold, kasi kung madumi yan, ang color niyan is parang dark gold, pag ayaw pa din ng eraser, try mo basain ng lighter fluid ung plates/pin, then brushin mo ng tooth brush, (ingatan mo lang wag tamaan ang mga IC at Capacitors at baka matanggal) then patuyuin mo lang sa fan, tsaka mo try ikabit.
