Delete temp. files / Clear the cache
Why does my phone keep freezing up? Why does my computer keep freezing up? The answer is the same in both cases - too many temp files may slow down and even crash your device's operating system (learn how to clear your cache).
Replace the faulty RAM (Random Access Memory) stick(s)
Maybe a faulty RAM stick is the culprit. To check this, download and run Memtest86+ and see if errors arise (click here if you are not sure how to use it). If they do, it's quite likely that your computer is crashing because of a defective RAM.
In this case, you need to determine exactly which memory stick is defective (if you have several memory sticks). To do this, remove all the sticks from the motherboard but one.
Check these step-by-step instructions: for laptops or for desktops on how to remove RAM sticks safely. Once they are removed (all but one) boot the system - if it boots fine, and no errors are detected in Memtest86+, continue testing in the same fashion - one stick at a time, inserted in the memory slot - until the system fails to boot, or Memtest86+ indicates problems.
When you find the faulty RAM stick, go to a computer store and buy a new RAM memory stick which is fully compatible with your motherboard and other RAM sticks (If you don't know which one to buy, whether DRR I, DDR II, DDR III or DDR IV read this article).
It's possible that one of the drivers caused your computer to crash, especially if your computer started crashing after you have installed or updated the drivers.
If you see this line after the crash this that means that a driver caused it: STOP 0x000000D1 (DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO). However, the difficult part is locating the faulty driver and the best way to fix this is to reinstall them all.
The safest way to reinstall your computer's drivers is to download them directly from the website of your motherboard's manufacturer (not through third-party websites). To find the your motherboard's manufacturer, install AIDA, or open the System Information utility (Start -> type System information in the search box) -> System summary.
Once you find your motherboard's manufacturer, download all latest drivers from their website.
Note: Before you download drivers check the Windows version you are using and the System type (32-bit or 64-bit). To do that, right-click (My) Computer (if you use Windows 8(.1)/10: right-click This PC in a File Explorer window -> Properties)
Once you downloaded all drivers, uninstall the already installed ones. The best way to uninstall drivers is by means of an uninstaller software (you can also uninstall drivers via Control Panel; however, leftovers frequently remain if a software is uninstalled through Control Panel) The best uninstaller software include: Revo Uninstaller Pro,Advanced Uninstaller PRO, iObit Uninstaller, Absolute Uninstaller Select one of them, install it and follow the user-friendly instructions.
You are at home, playing a game, or watching a movie and all of a sudden your desktop computer turns off or restarts. And that happens frequently.
If you have tried everything else (software and hardware) and couldn't solve the problem, the only thing left to do is to replace the power supply unit.
The power supply unit is responsible for providing power to all the components that comprise your computer. They require a stable amount of electricity for maximum performance.
Unless they receive the amount of electricity they need, they won't work properly. However, if the power supply fails to meet this criterion, i.e the electricity level fluctuates all the time, your computer will restart or shut down all the time.
Go to a store and buy a new power supply. Make sure to inform them about the specifications of your computer's components (which you can find by installing AIDA 64), so that they can provide you with an adequate replacement (there are power supplies of 300 W, 500 W and etc.) or you can let them examine your computer and decide about the power supply it will require.
Windows can create system restore points that allow you to roll back your entire system to a previous stable state. Make use of this feature and go back to a restore point where your system did not freeze or crash. Your personal data is safe. Only Windows settings will be modified.
To restore Windows:
Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System tools -> System Restore (or type System Restore in the start menu search box) -> If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password and/or provide confirmation
If there is a recommended restore point, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next
If there isn't a recommended restore point, click Next
To view the programs and drivers that will be affected (which could also include programs that will be deleted), click Scan for affected programs.
Select the restore point you want -> click Next
When the restoring process is completed review the restore point and click Finish. To view the programs and drivers that will be affected, click Scan for affected programs. Your computer will be restored and hopefully won't crash again.
Note: Do not restart or shut down your computer before the restoring process is completed. If you are restoring Windows on a laptop, connect it to an AC adapter.
When your computer crashes and you see one of the following stop codes: Stop 0x000000ED (UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME) or Stop 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) the NTOSKRNL is confused. Either it cannot find the rest of itself, or it cannot read the file system at the location it believes it is stored.
Try reseating the data cables that connect the hard drive and its controller (on the motherboard) at both ends because improperly or poorly seated cabling means low data transfer and low data transfer means system instability.
Reseat the RAM (Random Access Memory) memory stick(s)
When your computer crashes and you see the following stop code: STOP 0x00000024 (NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM) the NTFS file system driver encountered a situation it could not handle, and this almost always happens due to one of these 3 things:
Data corruption on the disk
Data corruption in memory
The system completely running out of memory (this typically happens on heavily-loaded servers)
Reseat the RAM memory to eliminate data corruption issues caused by poorly or improperly seated hardware and run a full file-system check from CMD (type chkdsk /f /r) to detect and (possibly) fix any corrupted data.
If you computer crashes, or fails to load your OS (operating system) it is possible that it is a hard drive issue. The crash occurs when the OS tries to locate an important file on the hard drive, and when it cannot locate it, the computer crashes.
If you have already tried running the chkdsk /f /r command in CMD, reseating the SATA cable (or the IDE cable on older hard drives), and if a HDD diagnostic utility (download and install of these diagnostic tools) revealed bad sectors on your HDD, replace the hard drive. Go to a store and buy a new hard drive.
SSDs (Solid-state drives) are recommended by many users throughout the world (only if your motherboard has SATA ports on it). They are faster then the ordinary HDD drives (which use plates as a storage mechanism), power-saving and reliable. They do not require defragmentation and your operating sistem will boot very fast.
You can also buy one HDD and one SSD. Install your operating system on the SSD and use the HDD only to store files.
Note: If you see this line STOP 0x00000024 (NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM), it is another sign that your HDD needs to be replaced.
If your computer started misbehaving after you have installed new programs or games, it is possible that one of them is creating a conflict in your computer with one of the drivers.
Also, if you are a Windows user and see one of these stop codes: STOP 0x0000007E (SYSTEM_THREAD_EXEPTION_NOT_HANDLED), STOP 0x0000008E (KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED) or STOP 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA), that may be another sign of a program-related conflict.
