Solved Computer Screen Freezing in Place Tags: Components Support Desktops Monitors Computers Last response: December 22, 2013 10:49 PM in Components Share Tryguyfly December 22, 2013 6:33:56 PM Hey guys, for several weeks now, my computer has had the problem of randomly locking its screen (freezing). The picture on the monitor freezes and I can't do anything, move my mouse, alt-tab, etc. Hints: The CPU tends to slow down its fan speed when the PC is about to freeze. I have tried re-seating the RAM, done windows memory diagnostic, and swapping out different sticks, no change. I have run the DLG quick test on the hard drive. That test passed as well. I have re-installed Windows 7 and updated to the most recent graphics drivers. I have cleaned out some of the dust from my CPU/case. That's all I can think of for now, please let me know of anything you can think of.
