Thread: Vista freezes

  1. #1

    Default Vista freezes

    Home Premium
    Recently, Vista has begun freezing for no apparent reason. Have to
    unplug/plug the PC to get it to reboot.
    It will freeze during use. It will freeze when not in use and in Sleep
    mode (the screen is black).
    TO my knowledge, the only change I have made was 2-3 days before this
    began - removed some folders from File Indexing, including one backup drive.
    Can't find any troubleshooting steps on the net. Guidance please.

    Do you have the latest available Windows Vista drivers installed
    for your video adapter?

    Probably something wrong wit your computer. Ram maybe. CPU fan stopped
    working. Things heating up. Open her up and ---- out all the dust bunnies.
    Get a ram checker.

    Thanks for all replies.
    Already did the spyware/antivirus.
    I keep up to date on all Vista updates.
    I will try the others when I can.
    Since this freezing seems to occur 2twice a day to every other day, it
    may be a while before I know if any/all of this wroks.

    Another lie.

    Another lie.

    > People sometimes

    And yet another lie.

    So, hot shot, what's YOUR advice for the OP? None? Thought so.

    Did you System Restore to, say, a week earlier to see if the behavior
    changes?
