Hi all wonder if you could help. I have a pc which is running windows xpi have not had problems with it really, since this week.. it has started to freeze for a few secs and if i press anything it bleeps from inside the machine my c drive is telling me i have 60 % free.. was worried it was overfull i am running norton security 2007 and have done checks on the system and it seems fine. any ideas ? its getting on my nerves.. it loads up programs fine and no real slow down until it freezes
Find out what BIOS you have and check against the beep codes click here this should tell you what is wrong.
hi thanks for your reply. how to i find out bios i have ? does that mean what the beep sounds like ?? its a 1 beep which is short.
oh also it does htis not when the computer is starting up but when full running... also do you think it could have something to do with my mouse ? hence why it stopes moving ?
Or does it mean this is the problem ? AMI BIOS BEEP CODES1 short DRAM refresh failure if so then huh ? LOL what does that mean
Beep codes are when the internal speaker gives a beep when you switch on. It happens before windows loads.Are you saying the beeps are appearing after this ie after windows loads?
Possibly failing Ram try memtest86 click here
Just a thought,can you check if it is freezing in safe mode,tapping F8 on startup will get you into safe mode.If not,it is possible one of your startup apps are conflicting somewhere.
Hi i can confirm it is happening after the windows load up.. when everything is running.. I have not tried safe mode.. i shall give it a go i must admit it is very random.. while i write this it has not done it.... ill try safe mode..
what is this Memtest86its like a memory check is it ? do i download the 3.2 version i gather ?
it does not seem to do it in safe mode. what does this mean ?
