Although it can be frustrating when your Windows computer stops responding, there are simple techniques one can use to fix a frozen computer. The first thing you should do when your computer freezes is give your computer some time to process. Your computer may not be frozen at all, it could just be slow or busy processing a task. So, if you give it some time, it could unfreeze itself and you don't have to do anything.
However, if you wait a while and your computer is still not responding, it may be a program or software that is frozen, and not the actual computer. When a program is not responding, hit Ctrl + Alt + Del simultaneously on your computer. This will open the Windows Task Manager, and from here, you can highlight the unresponsive program and click End Task. Most frozen computers can be fixed using this technique, but if this doesn't work, you may need to manually reboot your computer. You can do this by holding down the power button on your computer for five seconds, and then, turning it back on.
It's possible that it may not be your computer that is frozen; the problem could be your mouse or keyboard. Check to see if your keyboard and PC are responding with one another. Click the CAPS lock on your keyboard, and if the indicator light goes on, then you may be able to fix the problem by unplugging the keyboard/mouse from your computer and plugging it back in. If the indicator light does not go on, then the keyboard/mouse is not responding with the computer, and you may need to give your computer a manual reboot.
If your Windows computer constantly freezes on a regular basis, there are a couple things you can do to create a more permanent solution to the problem:
If all else fails, you may need to take of all the important data off your computer and do a fresh install of your Windows software. Alternatively, you may even need to replace certain parts of your computer if you want a permanent fix to the problem.
