Windows 7: Consistent hang ups.

21 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Consistent hang ups.

This is for work. We have been having tons of problems for this specific unit, it keeps on hanging! We think we have tried everything and we are running out of options.

Here's a list of what we have done:

- Cleaned all the video card, and RAM modules.
- Reformatted the hard drive.
- Replaced the hard drive.
- (Will) Replace the video card.
- Checked the board.
- No signs of burning and/or bloated capacitors.

Here's something I just thought of now:

- Monitor CPU temp and re-apply thermal paste if it shows signs of overheating.


If you guys could also enlighten me on what is causing this or what could cause this, that would also be very helpful. I know we have a lot of experienced people on this forums, and I know they are always more than willing to help :)

Badly need your help guys, the sooner the better. I know sevenforums never failed me in the past so I am optimistic about this. Any kind of hardware troubleshooting procedure will be highly appreciated!

Thanks guys!

Synth mate check out this PSU - Jump Start it could possibly be a PSU problem/s.

Test the volts mate but just keep in mind correct volts don't always mean correct current.

Also check out this - what I do as well as the sticks and cards because crud will get into the slots.


Now as for the slots to clean them use a strip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form of alcohol - iso propyl alcohol (what we swab the skin with before an injection) is good and GENTLY swipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s.
I am on the wrong machine at the moment or I would send a pic of my rig for slot cleaning.
