Unlock the PC

You are working on your computer, and the screen freezes. Don't panic: a few simple solutions can help you restart it. As long as your PC screen is frozen, it is impossible to act. The first step is to regain control in order to identify the problem.


Unplug


Unplug the network cables from the computer (Ethernet), eject the disks and peripherals. If the system wakes up, the problem is with one of these devices . Reconnect your cables one by one until you identify it.

Exit
Simultaneously press the Alt and F4 keys to close the open software. If the system wakes up again, this software is the root cause of the problem.

The task manager
If nothing happens, combine the Ctrl, Alt and Delete keys . If the task manager opens, it indicates the status of the open applications: select those which no longer respond, then click on "end of task".

Restart
No success? Restart. Press the on / off button on your PC until it turns off. Then wait 5 seconds before turning it on again.

Safe restart and restore
If your PC freezes on startup, try the operation again. Immediately after turning it back on, press the F8 key several times, until an options menu appears with "safe mode". Select and confirm. Once the PC has started, type "system restore" in the search bar of the "Start" menu. Follow the steps indicated, selecting a restore point that is older than the date of the block.

Prevent a PC from freezing again

If your computer has restarted without a problem, the problem may remain isolated. If, on the other hand, you have identified an error during the previous steps, it is time to correct it!

Viruses
The presence of viruses or malware is a common cause of blocking. If you don't have an antivirus, install one. Otherwise, run a full scan of your system. Also check that you only have one! Two antiviruses on the same PC can conflict.

Peripherals and software
Better to reinstall faulty drivers or software from your PC. Type in the search bar of the "Start" menu "Uninstall a program". Uninstall the culprit, then reinstall it from your installation CD. In the case of a peripheral, download the latest version of the driver from the Internet, from the manufacturer's site.

The components
Is your PC getting old? Motherboard, memory modules or graphics card are the components most frequently changed or supplemented. This manipulation requires the opening of the computer.

Tips in case of blocked PC

Maintain your PC! Dust it regularly with a can of compressed air.
Do not block the air vents: an overheating computer is most likely to crash.
Do some research on the Internet. On the forums or the sites of the manufacturers, you will be able to find solutions adapted to your material or particular case of figure.
