I like all of the above.
Seriously, If restarting the machine does not fix it, you may need to open it up and look for that loose connection. If that does not do it, you may need to reseat connectors and memory modules, and possible test some of your hardware.
For the long term, move the machine off the table and put it on the floor, elevated above the floor (better), or on a vibration dampening mat on the floor (better) (assuming you are not into kicking or punting).
Added: assuming a 'desktop', not a laptop...

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is this a joke question? :) Sounds like perfectly normal behavior to me. Why are you hitting the table? To fix the problem, stop hitting the table. :)

Don't hit on the table seems the simplest solution.

It may be something as simple os a lose connection or the vibration could be interfering with the hard disk. Hard disks are very susceptible to vibration.

Computers are sensitive, sentient beings. When you hit the table you are, in effect, hitting the computer. Naturally it reacts by becoming withdrawn. The same would happen if you continually hit a dog - I can only pray that you are not a dog owner.

You would think so at times. They certainly respond when you swear at them, not always in a favourable way though.

The hard drive is probably just temporarily parking its read/write head when it senses the vibration, causing the machine to freeze.

To fix this "problem", get an SSD. Or stop hitting the table. :P

If it is over sensitive to vibration then the loose connection idea is the most likely.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi

I thought about connecting UPS do diagnose where is the loose connection.
What do you think?

What to you expect a UPS to do? Unless the lose connection is in your house wiring system, a UPS will do nothing.

That is is assuming it is a lose connection. As I and others have said, hard disks don't like vibrations.

Best stop hitting the table, or is you must hit the table, move the computer.

Whether there's a real problem probably depends on how hard you hit the table. Your PC ought to be able to handle mild vibrations otherwise this would be a much more common problem.

This isn't a static thing is it? I had a PC for awhile where if I grounded myself on the its table within a foot or two of the PC it would restart. You can build up quite a charge when the humidity is only 10% but I made no direct contact with the computer. I never figured out what the problem was and that was the only PC that did that.
