Windows 7: System lock

System lock

Hi.

I run Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I have encountered in the past, that my computer locks. Suddenly I canot use even the Keyboard nor the mouse, and I have then to do a hard reset.

I have tried to start up in safemode, where I have run Dr Web Cureit, the viruscan with my Bullguard, and also with Superantispyware.

There was nothing at all to notice.

I then think it could be a hardware issue.

Anyone, that can tell me what to do ?.

BTW this is written in Linux

It happens to me from time to time. The way I get out of it is to press CTRL-ALT-DLET and then cancel the dialog. It seems to then free it up.

I forgot to mention that.

But I try it every time, but that does not get the life back

Have you tried running sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt. It should detect and hopefully repair any corrupted windows modules.

When it happens again, if you have a USB mouse/keyboard, try unplugging them and plugging them back in to see if that gives you functionality back. My Dell at work suffers from this problem with the mouse (random freezing), and unplugging it and plugging it back in again gets it working again.

I have, but not at the moment.

I'm doing it now.

But when I would do it, I had the cmd up, and would enter it, the computer locked.
I had to do a hard restart, and so far it's running now -50%- for the moment.

Will see what's going on

I will, and I'm nearly sure the issue persists.

I have a PS/2 mouse and the keyboard is USB.

Did you find out where your issue came from ?

The SFC /SCANNOW did not find any integrit violations.

Good enough, but what the Sherlok ? :-)
