Thread: DemolitionSquid Requires Computer Help

    Default DemolitionSquid Requires Computer Help

    I figured since we're all nerds here, someone might be able to help me.

    My PC keeps freezing. More accurately, it gets stuck in a load process. I'm using Windows Vista. If it sits idle for any amount of time, it just stops, and the little loading cursor spins. Any internet windows I try to open or close get a transparent white layer over them, and I cannot click on my toolbar or menu. I tried to do a virus scan, it froze along with my computer. I tried to do a full system check on restart, it also froze. I took the side off my tower and cleaned all the fans in case it was an overheating problem, no improvements.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think your best bet would be to reformat and start from scratch ...also dont use Vista.

    also you could also try a roll back to before this started or boot up in safe mode and do a virus/system scan.

    As screw_ball69 said, a system restore to before you started havingthe problem might be a good call (Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> System Restore)

    Do you have the OS installation disc?

    If so, I'd suggest putting in the disk, opening up a command prompt (Start >> Run >> CMD), and running this command: sfc /scannow

    It should find if it's an OS issue, and fix the corrupted file with the one from the disc.

    Also - when it gets frozen, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc, and go to the processes tab to see if there's anything that's eating up your CPU, or a ton of memory. (that'll be better if it's something virus related to see what the process that's bringing down your machine).

    Ironically, even my full system restore isn't working. Like, it won't even load up.

    go, to someone's house, put your HDD, format it, install new system=profit?
    also does it freeze all the time or at random moments
    did you try disconnecting the PC from the internet and then trying do stuff like sys recover?
    specify more the problem

    Can you get to it from Safe Mode?

    Lemme know if it works out, and hopefully we can pull something up. (Also - is it running on Vista SP2?)

    If I knew what SP2 was I would tell you.

    I am NOT tech savvy. At all. In any way.

    Use small words.

    Sorry 'bout that. Service Pack 2.

    (Start >> Right click on Computer >> Properties) See if it says "Windows Vista" or "Windows Vista: Service Pack 1 or 2"
