Macintosh OS/OS Mavericks freezing up

Advertisement


Question
Im running 10.9.5 on an Inltel mac. My mac freezes up quite often, but the cursor can still be moved

I have to manually shut it down and reboot. Do you have any suggestions for a fix.

Answer
Theres a few questions I need to ask before I can really answer this.

How old is the Mac?
How much RAM do you?
How big is the Hard Drive?

When you say freeze,do you mean you get the colorful beachball that just spins?
Does it freeze on just certain applications or does it freeze just randomly. And my last questions how long after a reboot does it take to start freezing again?
