I am finding that my computer (Athlon 1000 - 512 ram)is freezing after about 15 mins of use. Have run ad-aware and spybot and no nasties i.d. Tried to run a full Viruscan check but it locks up right at the end - all anti virus software is up to date however. Have just installed Roxio Creator 7 - could this be causing the problem? Any ideas please how to stop the freezing? (This also occurs when I am trying to burn a DVD) Thank you
Hi, assuming you have XP - for some reasom XP does not seem to like Roxio V7, though I believe ok with earlier versions ie V6. Don't ask me why - I think V7 can be made to work but apparently needs a lot of trial and error. I think a possible solution is to use Nero instead. This is not from personal experience, just from what I have read here and there.
im tempted to agree with Bandy, also have a freezing screen occasionaly but i installed the latest Nvidia drivers and dont seem to have the freezing up anymore, i did find that by hitting CTRL+ALT+DEL and waiting for about 10 seconds it would recover itself, close the task manager window and i was able to carry on.
might be worth a try, i also reduced my refresh rate to 60 from 75 Hertz, i think 75 was too quick for a TFT (or at least my PCWorld TFT).
now i dont have the freezing any more so one of them must have solved it.
another thread also mentions that hard drives can cause freezing up. something worth thinking about.
