It's pretty annoying to find your computer freezes when you're happily browsing the web, listening to tunes, composing a little email or in the middle of some other stuff. Seems that a lot of people just have no idea why their computer keeps freezing up. As a result, this post will tell you everything you need to know about laptop freezes.

Why does my computer freeze?

Your Windows computer could freeze when either a single computer program or the whole system stops to respond to inputs. For instance, the most commonly encountered scenario is that a workstation with a graphical user interface, all windows belonging to the frozen program freeze up, and though the mouse cursor still moves on the screen, your computer will respond neither to typing on the keyboard nor clicking the mouse.

A number of things can cause your Windows freezes (including Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP), like low memory, low battery, too many temporary internet files and registry errors. A frozen computer differs from a Windows crash, in which a program exits abnormally or the operating system shuts down.

Solution 1: Restart your computer

When your computer suddenly freezes, and you couldn't figure out the reason, you could restart your computer if you haven't already done so at least once since seeing this problem.

A lot could happen when Windows is starting up. Sometimes things don't work exactly as they should, especially after Windows has installed updates or there were other major changes to the operating system the last time it was up and running. A restart might be all Windows needs to get back on track.
