I will just tell you things that I noticed when my computer started freezing up on me: 1. Just a little prior to it, I had removed Nero Essentials from my computer. Although it is still showing in the Add/Remove panel that it is still there. 2. When my computer started freezing, I noticed my ASUS DVD-RAM Drive became missing. 3. I had just bought this computer about 4 months ago. I had a HP Pavaillion and the fan motor started getting really loud, to the point I was ready to just get rid of it. So I took it to the repair shop and the repair man built me a new computer, which is now a Packard Bell. 4. I have Windows XP on my computer. And Internet Explorer 8. 5. My computer freezes now when I might be playing a video, the entire screen freezes up. I have to completely re-start it by pressing the off button, it wont allow me to do a normal Start/Log off. Then sometimes I just get a black screen on restart that says Verifying DMI Pool but it doesnt start and I will have to restart it again, or even wait an hour to restart it. 6. It freezes sometimes when I wake up in the morning. The screen is frozen. 7. It wont allow me to install Java. 8. It freezes sometimes now when I am making a comment on Facebook, or on You Tube or even here on this forum. | Report abuse Reply to ClaudiaThompson Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows XP>Why is my computer freezing up all the time> Related ressources: ForumMy Dell i620 desktop freezes (locks) up from time to time ...
