how to stall a computer.

After solving a previous issue with my system where everything would completely freeze after about 5 minutes of the computer being on by going into MS Config and UN checking all of the unnecessary automatic start-up programs… I’ve run into another, but less fatal issue.

My computer has been having these ‘stalling’-like freeze patterns where I could just be sitting here typing something on Facebook, and the computer would freeze up and my typing would be delayed for several seconds, and then it would suddenly all explode into the text field shortly after it was done being frozen…

It does this about ever 10 seconds-1 minute on my computer, more often on Facebook or my e-mail website than anywhere else… Even exploring folders on my hard drive do these lock-ups and I have to just sit back and wait. But unfortunately the crashes have been fatal two or three times, each time when watching a YouTube video. I’d click on the video, the video would start up and then freeze everything, and I’d unfortunately have to press the reset button on the front of my computer.

I’m suspicious this could be a hardware problem because I was playing the PC game Mass Effect, which the stalling also affects, and usually after about 20-45 minutes of game play the game will experience another one of these freezes where the picture freezes but the sound is still played (or skipping), and then the screen goes black for a second, and I’m greeted by an error message that says ‘nv_4 display driver has stopped working properly and requires a restart to regain full display functionality.’ The game will then continue you to work normally, go through a few more stalling sessions and then finally bring me to a black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner, and require a reset button press.

I tried to solve the graphics card problem by downloading N Vida’s latest drivers, but the install failed for no reason, and won’t work. Even though I downloaded the right ones, and they are more recent than the updates I currently have…

So any idea? Sorry for making this so long… I really need some help, though. Mass Effect, and my entire computer never started doing this until just in the past two weeks.

  1. Computer programming (often shortened to programming or coding) is the process of designing, writing, testing, debugging, and maintaining the source code of computer programs. This source code is written in one or more programming languages (such as Java, C++, C#, python, etc.). The purpose of programming is to create a set of instructions that computers use to perform specific operations or to exhibit desired behaviors. The process of writing source code often requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms  and formal logic.

Introduction

Computer Hardware is the physical part of a computer, as distinguished from the computer software that executes or runs on the hardware. The hardware of a computer is infrequently changed, while software and data are modified frequently. The term soft refers to readily created, modified, or erased. These are unlike the physical components within the computer which are hard.

When you think of the term computer hardware you probably think of the guts inside your personal computer at home or the one in your classroom. However, computer hardware does not specifically refer to personal computers. Instead, it is all types of computer systems. Computer hardware is in embedded systems in automobiles, microwave ovens, CD players, DVD players, and many more devices. In 2003, only 0.2% of all microprocessors sold were for personal computers. How many other things in your house or your classroom use computer hardware?   

he Dell Client Configuration Utility is an ad-hoc configuration tool to modify Dell BIOS settings on workstation class systems(Precision, OptiPlex & Latitude). It does not require the permanent installation of a management agent on the target systems. The tool consists of a simple web-based interface that allows you to select and configure a multitude of settings. It will compile an executable that you can then deploy to the systems that need the modifications.

This section describes how to view and/or modify the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings on the Sun Fire X4170, X4270, and X4275 Servers. The BIOS Setup utility reports system information and can be used to configure the server BIOS settings. BIOS has a Setup utility stored in the BIOS flash memory. The configured data is provided with context-sensitive Help and is stored in the system’s battery-backed CMOS RAM. If the configuration stored in the CMOS RAM is invalid, the BIOS settings default to the original state specified at the factory
