What is wrong when my computer freezes up?

You first want to make sure it is not just the last program you were in that froze up:
– Try clicking on the Start Button to see if it reacts.
– Try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete & starting Task Manager
– Wait for a several minutes to see if something happens
– Did you just install a new program or piece of hardware?
– Try unplugging everything but monitor, keyboard & mouse & restart
– Do you have a space heater or something that draws power plugged into the same surge strip or wall outlet?
– If none of the above help, you may have to hold the power button
until the computer shuts down
If your computer continues to freeze up, possible causes include:
– Viruses or spyware
– Corrupted Windows or other program or data files
– Bad hardware – video board, RAM memory, harddrive, power supply, logic board
