Answers :

Check to make sure you have the current bios for that system and run diagnostics on the hard drive. If you have access to another hard drive you can swap the drive to see if it still hangs. It could also be the motherboard and/or the processor are the culprit which would be harder to diagnose.
The most common reason is memory. Power off your system. Test one memory module at a time to determine the bad module.

If not memory, then probably Malware or Spyware. Download, install, and run MalwareBytes and Spybot.

Hope this helps.

Freezes immediately When I turn it on it tends to boot up just fine but once being on for about a minute, before I have a chance to open any programs, it freezes.

For the next few hours after that, it won't turn on anymore. I bought a new AC adapter thinking that the problem was that the battery wasn't charging properly but that didn't f
