What To Do When Your System Freezes?

Big programs do it. Small programs do it. Good programs do it. Bad programs do it. Old systems do it. New systems do it. All programs do it, and all systems do it. Freezing is a fact of computing life, whether it’s an individual application that stops responding or the entire system that locks up. Anytime this happens your work is at risk, but freezing doesn’t always have to end in catastrophe. We’ll help you understand how to work through issues when they arise and recover from them after the fact.

General Tips

Regardless of the situation, there are a few general guidelines that can help keep you sane and your system stable. First, above all, be patient. What at first looks like a freeze can often just be slow processing. When in the middle of resource-intensive activities, such as editing video, burning a DVD, or copying large files, many applications and machines run especially slowly and may even appear to hang. Drastic steps are sometimes necessary, but they usually come with a cost. Don’t start forcing a thing to close or shut anything down until you’re certain it’s not just taking a long time to process and you’ve exhausted all other possibilities. As always, protect yourself against the inevitable (but hopefully rare) freezes and crashes that can’t be prevented. Follow the basic rules of computing. Save early and often. Schedule and confirm regular backups of important data. Don’t let hardware or software problems linger-troubleshoot and repair/replace as soon as feasible. Use antivirus and antispyware tools to protect your system from infection or invasion; Las Vegas computer repair – many freezes can be attributed to the impact of malware.

I dropped off my iPad around 9:30 in the morning. I was given the price of the new screen, including a senior citizen discount. The completion only took a few hours and I was called early afternoon to pick it up. I am very satisfied with the quality of the work.Angieslist
Great Service! We contacted Neon Computers because we needed someone to work with us on getting a virus removed from our home computer…they were fast and efficient and did a fantastic job! They are the best computer repair company in las vegas nv …hands down!Yahoo
I was looking for a reliable place to fix my Macbook Air’s fan & he immediately fixed it when the fan shipped in. He calls and leaves a voicemail to inform me that the fan arrived & I can drop it off. I will come here in the future for any computer problems =)Yelp
Took laptop there after dell was unable to help. Dropped laptop off for service at 1pm and had laptop back in working order by 10am next day. Peter was very knowledgeable. Very happy with service received.Yelp
Fair price. Quick Service. I was happy with service was ready next day. I asked if I needed more memory for my computer and he was very honest and told me what I had was perfectly adequate already. I like that he didn’t try selling me something I didn’t need. I had a bad video card in my desktop and he replaced with a better one. I feel price was right for service and part.Google+
I was going to Best Buy but I saw Neon Computers sign across the street and decided to stop by first there. They were able to remove the Virus from my computer the same day and it cost me probably twice as cheep as Best Buy. I’m so glad that I found them! Thanks! Oh, they repair iPhones and iPads too – they replaced the broken glass on me new iPad3 – how cool!Google+
