How long has the computer been up? Also is it old or did you just install something.

Sometimes a reboot will do the trick

Maybe a system restore? Make back up files on to a memory pen then restore it back to a date when it was actully working. Then install the things on your pen one by one, and if it's an application (so to speak) that is making it go slow then you'll know.

A request for everyone that posts threads like these:

please be very descriptive.

If you want genuine help for tech people you need to include at the minimum: Operating System, Type of machine, age of machine, the last thing you did on it when the problem happened, and describe the problem in detail.

I would love to help, but I can't without this information...

Whew... Sorry you guys. I couldn't even type what was going on. It wasn't working and I did the best I could to tell you what was going on.

My tech says that It's a hard drive issue. My mouse and keyboard were not right. I called Sony and they said that It would probably be 350 to get it fixed... Right when I was about to reboot it started working perfectly again... I really would like to know what's going on if any tech here has a clue.

Perhaps bad hard drive sectors? I've not heard of this problem before, but that's what it sounds like. Try doing a defrag?

Re: Comp Freezes Every 2 seconds - June 18th 2010, 06:37 PM

If your computer is running smoothly, the first thing you should do is backup everything you want to save, there's a chance that whatever issue was there could come back. This would help you get back up and running much quicker should it take a turn for the worse.

As for a hard drive issue, that would not make a lot of sense. It could, however, be that the controller for the HDD is having issues, in which case the motherboard would have to be replaced.

Can you do me a favor, and press your Windows Key, plus the Pause/Break button, and take a screenshot? If you press Shift+Print Screen, it'll take a picture of only the active window, in this case, your system properties window.

Also, has your computer physically been inspected by your technician? If not, there are some things that have to be ruled out first. The most common cause of freezing is overheating. If your computer has a lot of dust inside, it is extremely likely that this is the problem, especially if your computer is sitting on the floor, and not a desk. Keep in mind that a computer is essentially a vacuum cleaner, it is pulling in air from the front, and anything in the air that is sucked in usually does not make it out the back.

To check for dust, first shut down your computer from the start menu, and then unplug everything from the back of your computer. Then, place your computer on a flat, sturdy table, in a room with adequate lighting. Then, remove the screws from the rear right (rarely is left) panel, or, if there is a "button" on the side, depress this button and slide the panel off of the case. Then, visually inspect the computer. If there is a lot of dust inside your computer, you will need to do one of two things. You will need to get canned air (an air compressor will not work for this - it can contain moisture, and also the air can be highly charged) that is specifically designed for electronics, and carefully blow the dust out. Be careful to not turn the can upside down, or shake it while blowing, as this can introduce ice into the spray, which could be harmful. The next option would be to use a vacuum; however, you must use one that is specifically designed for electronics - your standard vacuum would destroy your computer, it creates an extremely large amount of static electricity, and 9 times out of 10 would ruin your computer. If you have access to both canned air or a data vac, use the vacuum. It does a much better job, and without the mess.

If there is not a lot of dust, I'd have your power supply checked. If it is getting old, or, is failing, it's likely to cause your RAM to not be getting the power it needs, causing your computer to freeze.

If your power supply is good, you should run a memory tester. If you have recently had your computer upgraded, this would be the second thing I'd check, after the dust inspection. In order to test this, go to http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp and download the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool. For this, you will need a CD burner, and a blank CD. Once you have burned the diagnostic tool onto a CD, you will need to restart your computer, and boot from the CD.

If at any step you find an issue, please let me know. If nothing comes up, there are more things to look at.
