Programs Not Responding

by dantheman1234a / December 18, 2015 10:06 AM PST

Hi Guys

I really hope someone can help me as im really at a loss here.

I have a brand new MSI 24GE 2QE 4K-005EU All in One PC.

Now the problem i'm having is some programs are freezing and then say "Not Responding" even when i boot up the programs within seconds they simple freeze and then that not responding message comes up, i have refreshed windows 8.1 back to factory settings but i am still having this problem,

I have checked to see if the programs are compatible with Windows 8.1 and they certainly are so i don't know why it is doing this.

The specs are:
Computer Type PC/Desktop
System Manufacturer/Model Number MSI 24GE 2QE 4K-005EU
OS Windows 8.1
CPU Intel Core i7 4720HQ 2.60 GHz
Memory 16GB
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
Sound Card Realtek High Definition Audio
Monitor(s) Displays All In One
Screen Resolution 3840 x 2160
Keyboard MSI StarType E5500W
Mouse MSI StarMouse SW130
Hard Drives 2TB Hard Drive 2 Partitions 1 with 237GB which is the C: Drive and a D: Drive with 1.79 TB space
Internet Speed
Browser Google Chrome
Antivirus AVG Internet Security 2016

So the specs are really good so i am really at a loss at what the problem could be i have made sure i have all the up to date drivers as well,

1 other problem i have with this is that if i watch a video it glitches like mad sometimes as well, it settles down after a while but i still think this shouldn't be happening with a brand new AIO with these specs am i right?

I hope someone can help me as i think i am at breaking point and really don't fancy sending it back especially with it being Christmas and being very unlikely that i will receive a new one before Christmas as i need it for work as well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all and look forward to hearing from you.

Avg isn't on the PC anymore as when I refreshed windows 8.1 I didn't reinstall avg so that's not on there anymore but it's still freezing you see so I'm stumped on what to do,

you need to contact tech support of the computer manufacturer. It may be a common problem and they may have a fix.

A nasty possiiblity
by Flatworm / December 19, 2015 6:40 AM PST

You say this is a new computer. Has it behaved this way since you first started using it?

If so, it could be a hardware problem with either the disk drive or the RAM. It could even be a faulty main processor, or a fault on the motherboard. You may actually have to send it back.

Of course, it could also be a bogus device driver. I had a symptom like this with some later Windows 10 Betas because of the Synaptics touchpad driver (but any driver could be at fault).

More and more I wonder if MSI has a problem...
by James Denison / December 19, 2015 7:06 AM PST

....with it's motherboards lately.

I now see this happening not just on the motherboards using AMD processor but as you have, the Intel processors too.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS. If MSI motherboards are the problem, then expect it to be awhile before they admit it.

Nahimic Audio Software problem.

Google search shows plenty of problems on it.


igfxEM.exe is a software module that may have been installed on your computer when you purchased it. The exact disk location where igfxEM.exe should be stored on your PC is also shown below so you can verfiy it is not spyware or virus related, as many virus programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. This igfxEM.exe file is from Intel and it is common user interface module and its related to the main Intel driver related files you may see in your PC tasklist. Always check the proper disk location of your programs if you are concerned that they may be spyware or malware. Intel software is common on computers as many chips used today are Intel brand. This will appear in your task list. This file is considered safe and is not virus, spyware or adware related. Visit igfxem.exe for complete information on this task or process. If you would like help on other tasks or processes, you can view the entire process and task directory here.

Hmm, seems you are not alone.

Maybe you should reinstall the driver files, and run a drive check using CHKDSK

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
