Windows® 7 Screen Freeze
What are the reasons for screen freezing in Windows 7?
Screen freezing occurs when the system does not respond, neither any input device works nor the system can be restarted from the operating system menu. This is a common problem with all Windows operating system PC and Windows7 is no exception.
Here we will talk about the reasons of screen freezing in Windows 7:
- Hardware incompatibilities
- Driver and registry issues
- Malware and antivirus programs
- Bugs and user interventions
Windows 7 freezing is a major result of hardware incompatibilities. The hardware could be absolutely anything; it could be mouse, keyboard, CD ROM drive or anything. Many situations lead to Blue Screen of Death which is another output of hardware incompatibilities. Run a hardware compatibility test to detect on the device which is playing up with the performance of the system.
Driver and registry issues
The drivers are a major cause of Windows 7 freezing. Even though the devices would be compatible there may be some driver conflicts which lead to screen freezing in a Windows7 PC. Moreover, the drivers may not be updated. To check on the right drivers and updates manufacturer’s website can be referred. Screen freezing can also occur if the Windows registry files are not organized and have flaws. To resolve it perform a cleaning on the system. Even applications like ncleaner can be used to clean the registry.
Malware and antivirus programs
Any infection in the system could be a big reason behind Windows 7 freezing. When the system is online there are millions of threats it can contact and therefore it must be protected. On many occasions the antivirus programs conflict with each other and freeze the system. It is always important to have the antivirus which has less conflict history and is effective at the same time.
Bugs and user interventions
There are applications which intervene into the systems performance and make it freeze; the scripts of the applications are solely responsible for it. To avoid any loss in terms of information, the backup and the screenshot of the system must be taken after every interval.
