Vista. Freezing, No System Restore Points, etc.

by HellsFallenHero / March 1, 2011 3:09 AM PST

Hello. I'm using a Gateway LX6810-01 with Vista Home Premimum (64bit). I have 6gbs of ram.

So, basically. I usually fix my families computer because well, they have no idea what they're doing. And I do for the most part.
But anyways. I've been grounded. And I get on to find that it's freezing up every 15 seconds.

I first tried to defrag thinking that it might speed up the computer enough so I can actually fix it. But, it wouldn't even load up. I then restarted, and booted in safemode. I ran Malwarebytes, quick scan. And it still freezes up. I tried to defrag again, while in safemode and it froze up.

I did a scan with our antivirus Sophos. (I hate it.) It didn't pick up much. I then ran MalwareBytes 2 more times. Full scan.
It is still freezing up.

I was going to system restore. But then I found out all of my system restore points are now gone. I have no idea why.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked if there isn't any process using a lot of CPU?

Check if you find something in your log events, maybe your harddrive is failing...
Goto Start => Right click on "Computer" => click "Manage" => then open "Event Viewer"
Click "Windows logs" and "System" look for recent error's if you find some post them and we'll have a look Happy

So, I just download all of those and install? Should I uninstall anything first?

You have to choose one of the four chipset drivers.
One that fits your PC, this is usually printed on the box...

So, I couldn't find it.
I've never tried to find a chipset before so I'm lost.
I downloaded Hardware Vendor dector thing from the Gateway website you sent me.

It says, Category - VGA Vendor - nVidia.

So does that mean I download one of the VGA Drivers?

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?
