Windows 7: Constant Freezing

Constant Freezing

Hey all..

as of a couple of weeks ago my computer frequently decides to just freeze for three seconds. It can happy from anywhere between once every ten minutes, to three or four times a minute.

I recently reformatted and the problem wasn't solved. I just dedicated 760mb of a flash drive to ReadyBoost (it was a small, small usb >.<) and to my surprise, it actually made a bit of a difference.

The freezing was still apparent though, and gets disruptive when I game.

I know it's not a problem of the game being too demanding for my computer, as it's not a high-specs game and I was always playing it before a couple weeks ago with no problem.

My specs:

Intel T6600 dual core 2.2ghz
4gb DDR3 ram
512mb GeForce 210m (dx11)

Does anyone know of any possible solutions? This has been a serious annoyance over the past few weeks and I could seriously do without it D:

Thanks in advance.

Is your processor getting overheated in any way? I used to have a pentium T2060 and whenever it gets overheated, the fan starts, and then somehow my system lags for quite a while.

If not, then do the usual
  • check drivers (chipset driver as well)
  • check services and their cpu usage
  • check your antivirus/antimalware
  • check your system files (cmd as admin, sfc /scannow)
  • check your reliability monitor (start menu, type in reliability history)
Cheers~!

Yeah, thanks for the help. I have done that stuff previously and all seemed normal. I just found a thread in the 'Gaming' section of the site dealing with the stuttering-like problem I get with gaming, where the freezing is predominantly and issue.

I'll give the steps in there a try and then come back and let you guys know.

Thanks for the help though bud

Well, mixed results I guess. Freezing was minimal but L4D2 still crashed >.>

Is there any other advice anyone could give me to boost the performance of my laptop?

You can try some programs like Tuneup utilities 2010 TuneUp America - TuneUp Utilities - Version 2010
auslogics boostspeed Auslogics Products
or game booster (creates a game mode =D) Game Booster | Faster Play, Free Download | Free Game Accelerator Download
The game booster is free.

I don't really have the knowledge to be opening up my laptop to be doing that sort of stuff, to be honest.

Game Booster actually works amazingly well. Nice find, sparkie.
