View Full Version : Random Freezing

December 5th, 2008, 16:44
I am having a problem with my computer that has me stumped, so I wonder if any of you guys could give me some suggestions about fixing it.

I have windows XP SP3. For the last week or so, and not related to any new install that I can think of, the computer freezes. Deep freeze, no response to the mouse, the keyboard, not even a BSOD that I could use to pinpoint the culprit driver or software. Happens randomly and the only way out is a hard reboot.
Any suggestions pointers on how to diagnose/solve this problem??

I had a problem a few months ago just like yours.
There was some problem with the micro updates and my box.

I had to roll it back and shutoff auto update.
It happened to a few other people I know.

If its not related to Woodmann's problem, check your hard drive failures in logs. A nearly dead hdd is oftenly causing freezes.
