Fujitsu Amilo Pro V3515 freezing on Windows 7 64bit

March 25, 2020 at 09:29:11
Specs: Windows 7
I know that this is an old machine on outdated machine, but I am emotinal about old rattletrap :)
Problem is that it freezes randomly on 64bit Win7 OS, and only long press turn off button works.
I have found couple of old posts on forums, but they are all very old and locked before anyone confirmed resolution of problem.
Any ideas ?

Try blowing out air vents with canned compressed air.it's probably overheating.

512MB RAM with Vista
I hope you maxed our RAM (2GB) and with THAT amount you should have installed 32Bit Windows 7 or Linux.
Windows 7 32bit needs 2GB RAM minimum to run decent, 1GB to install t all.
Windows 7 64bit needs 4GB or more to run decent and barely runs on 3GB. Even at 4GB it gets bogged down when running more than one thing at a time. You cannot run 64bit because there is not enough memory to operate it fully with 2GB RAM and not a chance if less.
Your original hard drive is only 60GB in size and Windows 7 64bit home uses something like 40+GB of drive space. If you plan on running even 32bit I would get a larger SATA hard drive or better, an SATA SSD drive 256GB or larger.

This is on top of the fact that Windows 7 is no longer being supported by Microsoft so maybe saving your money and purchasing something newer would be much better.

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

Thanks mates on our thoughts.

If anyone need solution in future problem was wireless atheros 5005g network card driver. Just update latest driver for win 7 64 bit OS, all ok.
Of course old cpu could not run 64bit OS, so updated CPU to core2 t7200, and added memory (one slot 2gb, one slot 500mb). Disk is still old one 60GB, and if you do not update win7, it takes only 10gb of space, and if you update it youll need 20gb.
And with this machine and its max 2.25gb memory-ram limit (installed 2.5, but can operate only 2.25) it runs perfectly with all updates offered for win, but in my opinion it is better not to (if it is not used for payment etc.., it is not wise anyway on that old os).


cheers
