Windows® 7 Freezes
If Windows 7 is not responding or halts in between while you work on your system?
Windows 7, an operating system developed by Microsoft, is the latest version in the series of Windows operating systems that is used on PCs, laptops, notebooks and tablet PCs. It is faster than the earlier versions of the Windows operating system.
Sometimes, you will find yourself unable to type a session key in Windows 7 Live Help. If such is the case, then you are faced with the system freeze problem. System freeze is one of the most common problems that Windows users have to deal with, and this is the same for Windows 7 users as well. This silent threat can occur any time, whether you are using your computer or not. It may occur while you play imusic or view multimedia files, type or run scans. Sometimes, it even occurs when you start your PC.
Some of the common causes of system freeze in Windows 7 are as follows:
- Incompatible hardware or applications
- Low memory or disk space
- Bad sectors on hard disk
- Corrupt or damaged Windows registry
Incompatible hardware or applications
If hardware devices such as keyboard and mouse are not supported by the operating system, then Windows freezes become a common occurrence. If you run heavy applications that occupy a lot of memory space, the chances of conflicts between the operating system and such applications increases, leading to slowing down of the system. Consequently, your system starts to freeze on a regular basis. To fix this issue, all you need to do is to check out the compatibility of the software applications and drivers with the operating system before installing them on your PC.
Low memory or disk space
Sometimes your system might lack sufficient hard disk space which then results in frequent system freezes. In most of such cases, cookies, temp files and folders occupy a lot of the memory space on your system. In such cases, you must use Disk Cleanup to delete such unwanted files and data from your system and free up the disk space. This will not just remove unwanted information from your hard disk, but will also allow you to compress your Recycle Bin and old files.
Bad sectors on hard disk
Very often it has been seen that some bad sectors start developing on the hard disk. The moment you intend to access the information stored in these bad sectors, the system will hang. So, to come to an amicable solution, you need to keep your hard disk in good working condition by formatting, defragmenting and running system scans on a regular basis.
Corrupt or damaged Windows registry
Corrupt or damaged Windows registry results in frequent system errors and system freezes. To cope with this issue, you should scan the Windows registry for errors by installing a registry cleaner software easily available on the Internet. To remove all the errors in the Windows registry, reboot your system, and if the problem still persists then call iYogi’s tech experts.
