Windows 7: All programs not responding - PC constantly restarts and Freezes

How old is the computer in question?

Are you able to monitor your cpu temps in the BIOS? Do you have a program to monitor your cpu temp within Windows?

Do you have the option of alternately testing your system with a single stick of RAM?

Might want to test it with a Linux LiveCD (Linux Mint or Fedora is easy to use) if it seems fine there, perhaps your Windows installation is corrupted.

My laptop is a few years old.
I used some program that said it can increase my fans speed which none worked on my laptop. It said all my stuff were hot but the thing is my brother gave me this laptop and when he gave it to me he told me that the battery is bad and it has to be on charge at all times if you unplug it the battery will die in 2 minutes lol.

So my laptop does get really hot but I never had any issues of my PC BSODing or randomly freezing out of no where or completely random restarts.

Yes I can be typing then my PC just restarts on it's own instantly or it will just turn off. This has happened all of a sudden and recently which is why it's getting on my nerves.

"Do you have the option of alternately testing your system with a single stick of RAM?"
I don't know how to do that :/

My problem hasn't started years ago, months ago, probably a 1 month ago my pc would just shut it self off for no reason and I thought my battery died but it was at 15%

I've had my laptop really hot to touch at 3% battery and i never had random shut off issues. This has been getting on my nerves a lot when my computer randomly turns off or restarts all on its own.

I downloaded device doctor pro and updated all my drivers using that but I still am having my PC restarted / turned off all on its own.

I really hope I can get some help

Did you try running without the battery? Just unplug it (shutdown first) and run on AC adapter alone

Yea and my battery dies in less than 5 minutes. My battery will never hit 100% right now it's 16% right now. Gains like 1% a week or so lol.

All my programs still become "Not Responding"

Try:
- Create a manual System Restore point - System Restore
- Enable msahci driver - AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista and then uninstall IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technologies)
- Perform a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
- Run in elevated cmd (Search in Start Menu - cmd - right click and run as admin):
Code:
sfc /scannow
Also:
- Follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and post here so Laith or someone else can take a look
