Computer trouble Aug. 16th, 2008 @ 04:00 AM Reply

Ok I've got this pretty big problem with my computer, whenever a load a disk theres a 8/10 chance the computer will freeze, lock completly up. I have to restart the computer, the chance increases the more disks I load, for example I have to install fable around 17 times, same with the sims 2.
It pisses me off and I've had enough of it, I've just disk cleaned and defragmented my computer last night and it still happens.
Does anyone know whats going on?

I'm 99% positive you have LimeWire. I mean, a virus.

My comp isn't cluttered, though I do have limewire but the problem started before I got that, just after I installed P Cillian (security system)
anyway, I've had 3 other security systems after that and they didn't pick up anything, they deleted the normal amount of crap but nothing helped

Whish security suite are you running now though? Did you make sure to completely remove the last ones, having more than one antivirus on the go can really throw a spanner in the works. If it's only your CD-drive though, it's far more likely to be a knackered motherboard or corrupt BIOS, might even be worth giving your IDE/SATA cables a wobble around, check everything's stuck in straight and in the right place. If you've got another CD drive hanging around somwhere, fit that in place of your current one and see if the problem's still there, and even then you can try shifting it to an older computer to see if it's just a hardware compatibility issue of some kind. Doing an over-the-top windows installation could help, and definitely check the stability of your RAM in it's sockets. It might just be age, most home PCs last about three or four years and yours does sound like a hardware error.

Bleh, sorry that's a bit garbled, just typed it out as I thoguh of things, but hopefully one of those'll be helpful. Good luck!

It might be because your motherboard (BIOS) is out of date. My uncle has the same problem right now. You can download a link from the internet plus instructions, though don't cut corners or miss a step coz it can seriously harm your computer.


Indeed.

Ok, I'm in the process of buying a new security system, I do not have ANY other anti virus software, my motherboard can't be out of date as I got a new one in december (problem wasn't solved) and I'm going to try what undertone said.

I think he doesn't have enough computing power to display massive external files.
