10 Things to do when ur PC Hangs

Sometimes when you are in
the middle of someting and
suddenly your computer
hangs or freezes. You are
left with no other option
than to restart your computer directly. But the
only problem is, you have
not saved your work!
Don t panic!

There is a

solution for that! And you
can surely save your file! Here s how: First keep on pressing "
Num Lock key until your
Operating system is back to
normal state. This releases
the processor from any
busy process. If this doesn t workthen follow
the below ten tips to bring
youcomputer back to
normal state when it is
1. Click on " ctrl-alt-delete keys. The windows task
manager will then open,
clickon all programs that
you don t need and end
the task. You will see that
all programson your taskbar will close one by
one. If this will resolve the
issue! then save! NOTE: Post your comments
after read this Article

1: if you re working

on an MS Office application,
it will automatically save
your file in case the programs suddenly shut
tip# 2: always save your
file at least every 2minutes
by just simply clicking on
the"diskette icon its just one click!)

2. If it did not resolve the

issue, are there some users
logged on that computer?
If so, go to switch user (for
XP) and log off that user,
go back to your log on screen and log on again.
The reason the computer
hang up is because if there
are many open programs
and applications, these
retains in the memory, if it is too much for the
memory to handle, it
freezes! Another reason
too the computer hang up
is because if you are
connected to the internet via dial up, and you are
running too many
applications and opening
many websites. So I
suggest, if you are
multimedia user or a heavy internet user, then you are
better off with a higher
memory, at least 512Mb of
memory. There are simple
ways to avoid computer to
freeze or hang up:

3. Clean your history at

least once a week
options>clear history . I
normally set my history to
"0", meaning, when I restart my computer, it
doesn't save history pages
that I have visited

4. Delete all internet

temporary files
options>delete files (do the
" offline" content too!)

5. Delete cookies (some do

not do this, but I do delete
cookies at least once a
week!) >tools>internet
options>delete cookies

6. Remove unnecessary

programs that you no
longer use they are just
occupying spaceand
memory! >control
panel>add/remove programs

7. Do defragmentation at least

once a week>point the
mouse to " start" button,
then right click "
explore">right click the mouse pointing to drive C
(which is usually the main
system logical

8. You can also check the

logical drive's volume for
errors >point the mouse
to"start" button, then right
click " explorer>right click
the mouse pointing to drive C (I repeat, is usually
the main systemlogical

9. It is better to have only

one user being logged on.
Even if there are many
users, make sure the user
logs off after using the
computer, rather than keeping it logged on and
you do the switching of
users. Switching users is
good as long as you don't
keep all users logged on

10. Always shut down

properly the computer (do
NOT use the power button
when turning it off!
