My computer freezes randomly. It could freeze now. What happens is, is that the mouse, the screen and everything freezes. The system light doesn't flicker, and there is absolutely no activity at all from my computer at the time. It can happen when playing a game, logging on or doing anything at all. I thought it could be the heat, but the highest temperature it gets to is 61C, after playing a game...or at 100% load according to my graphics driver tool. Don't have a blue screen warning either, and I have to hold down the shut down button if this happens. My specs are pretty good, so should I send this off on warranty or fix it myself?

Here's an idea.

Update Windows or/and try disconnect your usb devices.

If you want to have the mods respond to your problem, you should try to include some more spcific detail about the error from eg eventviewer or your bsod dump files.
Try the program bluescreenview.

Hope it helps. :huh:

What did you use to tell what the temp was on your machine? I would use speed fan then post all of the temps it reports. Speed fan: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Also yes I would check inside of the computer to see if there is a lot of dust, just be sure to unplug the computer and be sure to ground your self so that you dont shock something. :huh:

I had the same problem, mouse freezes, screen freezes, the works. I've cleaned the mouse xyz times, tried different scrubbing surfaces, nothing worked. So Googled for 'MOUSE FREEZES' and found this very clever and it works answer:

THE PROBLEM IS YOU'VE CHANGED PRINTERS, you went out and bought a new one, and set up A WAR OF THE WORLDS BETWEEN THE TWO PRINTERS. Result total slow down, mouse won't respond, PC locks up, so you need to DELETE THE PRINTER/S YOU DON'T USE, OR [as follows]:

The Solution

Open the printer control panel for the Epson printer (Start --> Settings --> Printers & Faxes --> Epson 1280). Select Properties under the Printer menu. From the Properties window, General tab, click on the Printing Preferences button. Select the Utilities tab and click on the Speed & Progress button at the bottom. From the Speed & Progress window click on the Monitoring Preferences button. From the Monitoring Preferences window click the checkbox marked "Allow monitoring of shared printers". Click OK button on all the windows. Now when the status monitor runs on other machines they will be able to monitor the shared printer.
