OS (Windows 7 32bit) seems to randomly lock up

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ive been having a problem where if i leave my computer and come back to it none of my programs will open, ill either get some kind of crash/stopped working message or nothing happens at all and the program dosent show up in the task manager. It also will not let me click the arrow in the bottom right to choose log out/shutdown/etc and the only thing that seems to temporarily fix this is if i do a full restart.

sounds like you need to change the windows power management to high performance. and in the advanced you need to make sure your hard drive is not set to turn off. norm it is auto set to do it at 20min. i have ran into that on some installs where it will cause issues. if that don't help i would say reinstall windows.
