Vista freezes a lot of the time when you’re working on it. It’s about as easy to spot the reason, as to make a coin land on its edge. But experts agree that there’s often a hardware problem at the heart of such Vista problems. At other times, it’s because the device drivers can’t get hold of enough RAM. They freeze, and this forces the user to install new software, or update the config for new drivers.
When the RAM runs low, the computer strains to simultaneously handle all running programs. This is especially true if you happen to be playing a video file at the time. So you see, there are many reasons why Vista might be acting the way it is.
