Computer lags when left idle.
Although right when I move my mouse, the screen goes black for half a sec and resumes to its normal speed. This happens every 5mins or so and some times it wont only lag butactually freeze my computer.
I am running on windows 7 64-bit. I have 3 monitors attached to my computer so I was wondering if maybe my cpu is being over worked and goes on like a power save mode when I'm not moving the mouse or something.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
ANYWAY, the computer is at the loading screen and the downloads have been halted.
Then, after thirty seconds or whatever, a notification pops up telling me that Windows was restarted for an update the update is always different, however, and I'm wondering if there's some kind of setting which stops the computer downloading updates without permission if left for too long.
When I reboot it will say that the computer has recovered from a crash and is looking for solutions.
This has also happened once at a friend's house when I left it for 10 minutes. Ireally want to know how to fix this.
Want to update every Thursday 8AM, or if computer is off the next time it is on and idle for 15 min.
Want to scan every Friday 8AM or if missed (which will probably happen more times than not) the next time the computer is idle for 15 min (run minimized would be preferable)
Both the Ethernet connection and modem are set to wake the computer, but they are not the source.
I've tried disabling non-Microsoft services and doing a clean boot; it did not work. In desperation, I reloaded Win 7 clean and installed no other software. The PC was connected to the internet and modem only.
When left alone and in sleep mode for 3 hours, the computer was awakened just about every 20 minutes. This behavior continues. The event log always states"Wake Source: Unknown".
When set to turn off hard disks after idle, you will notice a brief delay of a few seconds when you try to access a turned off hard disk as it spins back up and is turned back on automatically as needed. Having your hard disks to be turned off after being idle can help save energry and extend a laptop's battery life.
The mouse moves around but that's it eventually forcing me to do a hard shut down. I have the monitor sleep set to never and hibernate set to never, I just turn my monitors off when I'm away.
Recently (starting 2 months ago), my computer has been freezing up and turning one solid color. The first time it was white, second black, third white and fourth Pink. The first time it froze what when I was just surfing the internet.
The second I had left it to go to the bathroom. the third I had left it downloading files while I ate. And this last time, I was downloading some stuff and I left to go watch some tv and grab a bite to eat.
I can back and my screen was pink, and as far as I could tell, the entire computer froze.
despite my constant banging on the key board and yelling, nothing.
I ran the program on my old computer: it did the trick and I stopped experiencing the problem. Does this program ring any bells, if so what's its name and how do I apply it?
The lights come up but the desktop is completely black then followed by the beeps describe before.
