When we work on a computer regularly and continuously, sometimes the computer freezes or gets stuck. It starts running slowly. This is very annoying when you have an urgent work to do on the computer.The reasons could be many. It could be damaged or corrupted system file due to wrong handling or wrong installation, missing system files, unstable program, virus or any malicious program attack on the system files, over heated hardware etc. Let us find out the ways to handle them.
One big reason to your my computer keeps freezing problem is that in case you handled the operating system features or programs in a wrong way which resulted in the system freeze, then try restarting the system. If it does not prove helpful then the cause maybe a wrongly installed program or operating system. In this case, you can correct it by uninstalling it at first followed by reinstalling or repairing it. System freezing due to missing files can be handled by repairing or reinstalling the operating system using the original OS installation CD.
Programs of software become unstable when they are affected by a virus or malware. This results in system freezing, hence the question we normally ask, why does my computer keep freezing or running slow. The general method to overcome such a problem is by using an anti virus, anti malware or any anti spyware. You must simply install it and run so that it diagnoses your system thoroughly and displays the viruses in your system. Then you can remove them.
If your computer freezes after starting well, then it might be due to a particular program. You can find out the affected program through the task manager in Windows by pressing Control + Alt + Delete at the same time. Under the ‘Processes’ tab of the task manager window you can see all the running processes. If you spot any processes with a high reading other than the System Idle Process, then that program must be ended. Sometimes your computer keeps freezing up not because of something you did, but because of something someone else did as well.
If your hardware gets over heated time and again, then check your system’s internal fan. If it is covered in dust, then clean it. Also clean the heat sink. That will make it work efficiently. If the fan is not working, replace it with new one. If it is working but the hard ware still heats up then try using more fans. Other way is to use a cooler pad.
When handling the internal parts of the hardware, be careful because there can be static electricity in those parts. When handling the software, be careful with the installation commands because it may crash your whole software. Take advice and help from a trained professional in case you are not knowledgeable in this area.
So in the end when you ask again why does my computer keep freezing or running slow? Remember all the reasons that could lead to your computer behaving like that also take every needed precautions. If you are interest in taking a look at a curious comparison between Computer Engineering vs Computer Science, make sure to take a look. You will be amazed.
