Windows 7: Windows 7 Crash / freeze problem

Windows 7 Crash / freeze problem

Good to you all..
Im a total noob when it comes to this so please excuse any stupidity from my side, but iam very eager to learn. Quite often while im busy working on my pc (Mostly when im on the net)i would hear a BIOS beep and my pc will just stop responding. Im still able to move my mouse pointer but the programs just stop working. Its also occurs sometimes while booting up (on the "welcome" screen) that i'd would hear one beep and then my pc would freeze. I've done a low level format before including a checkdisk then a clean install but a few days later the problem just comes back. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Since you seem able to reproduce this relatively readily, it would be important to find out whether the same freeze/hang symptoms also happen in safe mode, or while booting to safe mode (press F8 during startup). How you proceed from there depends on whether it does happen in safe mode or not.

Also, I'd like to point out that from a technical standpoint, and these are very technical problems, the words "freeze", "hang", "lockup" and "crash" have different meanings. You don't seem to have crashes; that's when a program or the OS completely bombs out, perhaps with an error message. A "hang" is generally used to describe individually unresponsive applications. A "lockup" is when there's no apparent activity from either the OS or any of the apps - the machine is completely unresponsive and frozen - no mouse movement, no HDD activity, no signs of life of any kind.

Also check the manual of your mainboard.

A single beep has a meaning.

In a well written manual, the different beep codes are explained.


good luck
