PC Freezing

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

  4. faulty memory stick try memtest click here virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

  5. driver conflicts especially graphics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

    Operating system?

Auto-reboot disable:

When Running windows and it crashes you will get a blue screen and it will automatically restart, often it will restart too fast for you to see the error message. To disable auto restart on system failure, so you can see the error message.

  1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)
  2. Go to Advanced
  3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
  4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

5.

We would need to know far more details of your problem before we would be able offer a possible solution.

How old is your PC? This problem could be caused by nothing more than accumulated dust in all the fans including the one on your CPU. Easily sorted with a soft brush and a hoover.

How much RAM does your PC have/ An increase in the amount of memory might well help.

Make and model of PC would be useful? This would help us find out what components your PC has.

What operating system are you using? Some solutions might differ dependant on the OS

The OP has also posted the same thread on several other forums today.

Seems to me like a not-very-clever way to try and promote some dubious PC-support website.
