Computer freezing up on start up

Recommended Posts

So I start my computer up and after my registry scan completes I see a blue circle over my internet connection.  I run the trouble shooter and it says my local connection cannot be identified, unplug my router for ten seconds ad run trouble shooter again.  Ok, it works but I notice as I scroll my mouse across the screen it has a "hiccup" every now and then. Hmm.  So I go to open either a file or the internet and the computer freezes.  After a while it finally unlocks but I cannot access anything on the internet.  Run malware and anti virus scans and nothing found in both regular mode and Safe Mode.  Bumped my virtual memory up and still nothing.  I was finally able to open COD 4 and noticed in my lag meter a lag spike every now and then that was consistent with the mouse drag hiccup timing.  Read somewhere that it might be my network driver and to uninstall all of it and reboot.  haven't tried that yet.   Also, noticed the freezing happens in safe mode too, please tell me it is not my hard Drive dying....   Only way I was able to get on here (besides phone) was to run in Safe Mode Networking enabled.  Still freezes when I try to switch to a different file.

 

Computer info:

 

Dell All in one

OS Windows 7

Mainly use Chrome for internet

NVIDA 525m Graphics card

 

Any ideas?

Well, figured it out... apparently my Consumer IR device was not updating the drivers.  All I had to do was uninstall the Security Update (found under recently installed updates), and then restart the computer and it automatically updated everything.  I would like to smack those that build these damn things without an owners manual that tells you stuff like this, like a Chilton book for computers would be nice.  I so hate when it goes down and really hate to go pay someone to fix it.  So a nice DIY computer fix it book would be nice.

 

Oh and you have to restart the thing twice, once to configure and once to install....

I had an issue the other day.  It took me two days to resolve it.  My computer stopped sleeping and going into hibernate mode. After looking around and running some cmd stuff I found that there were some updates that did not fully install.  After I installed these and rebooted I was able to set my power setting back up and all is good.  Kind of a pain when to solve an issue you have to use the computer, but what if the computer is not working.  Lucky for me I have several along with three Android phones I can use to research with.

I turned off automatic update installation.  I read about the update, and if it doesn't have anything pertinent to me, I don't install it.

There is a "Chilton" book out there for you Diggity. It was written for XP but it still applies to most things in WIndows 10 I have found.

I will research and find it again.

 

There is one problem I have yet to solve.  I still can't post COD4 demos on here.

 

 

Here is the book by the same guy.  It helped me greatly in XP, so I hope it helps you and anyone else who reads this thread.

He also has a separate book for registry problems and fixes.  Both books are on Amazon.

Thanks guys appreciate it and I will look into all the advice.  I thought I had turned the update off, but might have over looked it.  I knew I would get some great help by posting, so a big thank you to everyone!!!
