Why Does My Computer Crash Randomly? Solutions to Computer Crashing

computer crash

Does your computer crash randomly? Do you know why? Do you know a few remedies to the problem? A computer crash occurs when an application or hardware component malfunctions. In most cases, an application ceases to work properly, producing an error, or the system shuts down/restarts, presenting you with an error message after the system fully boots up. Occasionally full system crashes occur when a critical component of the operating system ceases to operate.

In rare situations, the application/system crash occurs when the user attempts to run more than one application at the same time, overburdening the system.

Below I give a variety of solutions that you can attempt when your computer keeps crashing. Try as many as you need.

1) Use a Registry Scanner

Sometimes random system crashing would be due to the operating system’s faulty registry. Manually fixing the registry is next to impossible due to complexities of that specific component. That is why I highly recommend that you use registry cleaner software.

2) Repair Your Drivers

Your computer could be crashing because of the outcome of an improperly installed driver or file corruption due to bad sectors on your hard drive.

It can be difficult to find out the exact driver that is causing the computer to crash. So the most reliable solution is to try to reinstall all of the common system drivers such as, Motherboard, Graphics and Sound Card drivers.

3) Run a Repair Installation

If your computer does not have a brand name, you need to run a repair installation with an original operating system installation disc.

If you don’t have the original windows CD, you can use the Windows repair tool called Reimage, which is capable of repairing the operating system and also any errors.

4) Clear Off the Dust

There may be an accumulation of dust within the system case which may be the reason why your computer is crashing. The RAM (Random Access Memory) is liable to overheating due to the buildup of dust. So it is important that you clear off the dust using a small vacuum cleaner or compressed air.

5) Check Wiring of Hardware Cables

Your computer may be crashing because of improper wiring. So turn off the computer and make sure all systems cables are adequately connected into the right positions and then boot up the computer.

6) Use System Restore

In some cases faulty hardware drivers or installation of corrupt applications will result in computer crashing. This is the time when you use System Restore as a tool to undo recent changes to your computer system.

7) Change Your Power Supply

The power supply gives life to your computer, powering every device. Overtime the efficiency of your power supply will begin to falter. So it is best in that case to go for top brands of power supplies such as, Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, Enermax or XFX as the lower brands tend to have low efficiency ratings.

Summing up, the above methods are some of the ways to take action to prevent your computer from crashing continuously.
