    Vocab for crashed

    How should I say: "Zoom crashed" - and can I use the same word for the computer (a complete crash): "My computer crashed".

    Also, please, if possible - the word for 'hang'. "Windows is hanging. I can't do anything".

    Исправьте ошибки в моём русском, пожалуйста

    Ah, there are a lot of ways to say that, most informal. I'll give you a couple here:

    Whenever an app crashes you can say:

    Formal, kind of: Зум закончил работу с ошибкой. Зум вылетел на рабочий стол.

    Informal: Зум отвалился. Зум упал. Зум вылетел

    As for "hang", we usually say "завис" and it kind of works in both formal and informal, but it IS informal:

    Мой компьютер завис, я ничего не могу сделать. Виндоус завис, я ничего не могу сделать. You can also say "висит", мой компьютер висит...

    Formal would be "не отвечает"

    Компьютер не отвечает, я ничего не могу (на нём) сделать.

    As for when your OS crashes... Hmm, I'd just say that "Компьютер вылетел с ошибкой" or "Компьютер перезагрузился", also "Виндовс показал (синий) экран смерти"

    That's all from me but I am sure others will offer quite a few alternatives
    fortheether and justinwyllie like this.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.
