Computers keep on freezing up is one of the “everyday” issues most of the computer users encounter. Whether you’re a newbie or an expert with it. To know exactly what does this, here are some of the basic things you will need to do to stop your computer from freezing up:

Too many devices attached to your computer. You have this new video downloaded from the net and you want to transfer it to your iPod. So, you attached your iPod to your computer. And another thing, you remember you had a date with your friends last night and they are begging you to upload all the pictures to Twitter or Facebook. You have to attach the digital camera again to your PC to be able to do so. Technology has come a long way and we are too excited to use them all at the same time. However, this may crunch up your computer’s RAM. These things attached to your computer, you might need some and the other’s not, but do remember, overloading your computer’s capability might result to fatal crash or freezing up. Unplug any devices that you are not using to make room for other devices that you will be using to avoid any inconveniences.

New hardware. You found a new gaming software and you want it to install right away to your computer but you will need to buy this new video card. And you did. Your friend said that he just have this marvelous motherboard he bought at a very low price and it runs perfectly with his PC. And you did buy it, too, hoping it will make your computer runs faster. After a week of doing so, you started to notice, your pc starts to slow down, it will reboot itself, viewing of pictures are so blurry and videos are slowly moving. Not all hardware, the ones that best promise to make your PC lifestyle easier, is compatible with your computer. Check out with your computer manufacturer, a local technician you know, or go to forums that tackles the performance / reviews of the product before buying it.

Faulty hardware devices. This could be the driver that needs updating or a device that needs to be replaced. Each operating systems, whether Windows or Mac or any other OS, has a built in system checker for this. Try running it for your PC’s sake.

Obsolete program versions. You had the new antivirus software installed but the old version was not deleted. This will only eat up your memory. Try removing these kind of programs in your pc.

Startup programs. These programs were there, either because your computer manufacturer configured it or when you installed that program, it was set to start up immediately once your computer boots up. Figure out which programs needs to be in start up and which are not.

Icons almost covering your desktop. You can no longer see your wallpaper because of the many icons displayed. Try reducing the number of icons displayed Figure out which of those you need and not. For those you don’t really need, try moving these icons / files to their appropriate locations.

Too many unnecessary files stored in your memory. Did you know that when surfing the net, it will automatically saved files to your system? It will simply tell you the activities you’ve done while surfing that particular website. Well, you don’t really need this. It will just be a reason for hackers to hack into your system. Better delete this. The backup files of your original files, which are not really invisible to most users, are also stored in your computer’s RAM. Delete this one as well. You can use the disk cleanup tools of your operating system to delete any of these.

Too many programs running in the background. Go to your task manager and check which programs are running. If you can only see one program running, check out the msconfig utility. There you will find a lot of programs running in which some of those are not supposed to be enabled. Disable them but make sure that they should not really be running in the background or else it will cause a lot more issues than freezing up.

Duplicate files / programs. There can be two antivirus software installed in your computer, you forgot that you already downloaded this video and now there’s two in your PC – these things happened. Once in a while, check your pc for these so you can free up some memory space in your computer.

System errors. Don’t ignore those most of all if the message is coming from your pc and not from a site that you are just surfing. This system error comes with an information why your computer generated such error. Do the fixes suggested.

Software Suggested Updates. Once in a while, a message will pop up on your computer screen suggesting an update on your PC. After thorough reading, better to download it for your computer’s sake. But beware! Make sure that the updates are genuine and not just coming from a third-party site. You might be installing viruses / spywares / malwares in your computer.

Spywares / Malwares / Viruses. In order to prevent this, just make sure that your anti-virus software is up-to-date. If your antivirus software does not have spywares / malwares detector, look for a software that can do this and download it. Any of these three are enough to bring chaos to your computer. Additionally, make sure to scan your system at least thrice a week to make sure there is no presence of these three in your computer.

Now you know what makes your computer freeze up. You already have the knowledge on how you can stop your pc from this inconvenience. If none of these help, it is time for you to bring your computer to local technician or to your computer manufacturer for advanced troubleshooting.
