Windows 7 64bit Home

Hmmm after installing an update from windows update / Atheros Ethernet something I havent had a freeze the last 5 minutes or so, will leave it more to see how it goes... could that been the fix in my problem..? if yes then im amazed...

30 minutes into downloading through ethernet, still no freeze, will go to work and leave my PC open to test the result. write back in 5-6 hours.

Windows 7 64-bit

Glad to hear your issue was fixed.

Unfortunately mine has taken a turn for the worse. It's freezing much more frequently and now I'm thinking it isn't because of Bioshock 2. I'm actually 99% certain that it isn't Bioshock 2.

I have done multiple viruses/spyware/malware scans and the ones that actually could be completed turned up nothing.

It still froze in Safe Mode, so it's not just a simple driver problem.

Chkdsk couldn't finish because it froze.

No overheating or anything...I just don't know what the heck to do. I might have to send it back to Toshiba and I really don't want to have to do that.

Any help?

Windows 7 Utimate 64bit edition

I have a few guess's so i will add them, there are so many possibilities on this its hard without more info.

but I have a few guess's

1)Your power supply might be to low for your your setup..causing weird freezes
try this power consumption calculator
2) your chipset & video card might not be as compatible as they are supposed to be...I had this problem myself. was a via chipset and a radeon your video card and your motherboard an see the results.
3) could be a windows issue so try an sfc /scannow
4) if you set anything in your bois lately reset it back to normal...and update your bois as well

Check your ram with memtest86

And check your C: drive(or whaterver you have your os on) for errors

These are a few guess's but worth looking into if the problem persists

Windows 7 64-bit

Well, things have gotten significantly worse. I can't even start it up anymore. So, it's probably nothing to do with Windows 7 and I should probably start looking for help elsewhere.

Windows 7 64-bit

It didn't come with the disk and I kept putting off making recovery disks. I'm usually pretty careful about downloading (don't pirate or torrent either) and I took good care of it.

How would I be able to reinstall Windows with the computer not being able to start up anyway?

Download memtest and burn the ISO to a cd. Boot to that memtest CD and test your memory.

Lets make sure your memory is good before anything else.
