 Viruses may be the main cause of computer crashes. You should perform antivirus checks regularly. How to run a virus scan depends entirely on the antivirus program you are using. You can install some trustworthy virus scanning software and start the scanning process with just a click of a button.

2. Damage or Aging of the Computer Hard Disk.

You can install some software with disk detection function to test your computer. If the hard disk is damaged, it is recommended that you directly replace a new hard disk or buy a solid state hard disk as the system disk.

3. Too Many Junk Files are Stored on Your Computer.

We should treat computers like our own bodies, that means your company need regular inspections. Unnecessary junk files in the computer should be cleaned up in time, and things that are no longer needed also should be deleted. These seemingly simple steps are actually very helpful for speeding up the computer, or stop freezing.

4. Too Many Programs Opening at the Same Time.

If we run multiple programs at the same time, your computer may not have enough memory or computing power to support it, because each program in the computer requires a certain amount of internal and external (hardware) resources to run. In this case, you should right-click “Task Manager”, select “Task Manager”, click “Process”, find the frozen program, and then click “End Task”. It is recommended to run the required program at a time.

5. Too Much Dust Caused Your Computer Overheating.

If we do not pay attention to the cleaning of the computer for a long time, the accumulation of dust in the air may cause damage to the cooling system. Excessive heat will reduce the speed of the computer and eventually cause the computer to crash. If the temperature is high enough, it may even damage the integrated circuit of the system processor and make it unusable. In order to avoid this situation, please ensure that the computer is fully ventilated, and avoid using the computer case in harsh environments.

6. Your Computer May be Freezing is Insufficient RAM.

If your computer frequently freezes frequently, it may be due to insufficient memory. You can turn on the computer to check the remaining storage space, and then consider upgrading RAM or reinstalling the operating system to solve this problem.

7. Computer Driver Corruption or Errors.

The driver facilitates the communication between the hardware devices on the computer and the operating system. Damaged or outdated drivers can cause the computer to malfunction, which may be the reason why Windows keeps freezing. Keeping the driver up to date is one way to avoid this problem.

8. A Device Failure Occurred Outside the Computer.

In fact, certain devices connected to the computer may also cause Windows to freeze. These can include USB devices and other external devices such as keyboards and mice. If you want to identify the device causing the problem, please disconnect and reconnect each device separately. You can also update the USB device driver to help solve the problem.


Computers can malfunction and they very often do. But it is encouraging that no matter what the problem is, there are several solutions to help you overcome them. But we still need to develop good habits in the daily use of the computer. Backing up data on the computer can alleviate your worries that you may lose data when repairing the computer. It is also necessary to clean up and check your computer condition regularly. Of course, when you are not sure of the cause, do not operate blindly by yourself, as this may make the computer damage more serious.
