If this has all happened recently, go into system restore and restore to a date prior to the problems starting. That will reset all registry values back to that date. Often a quick fix.

If it helps, can you rate answer so that other people know if it's worth trying or not

Laptop freezing


Sorry bout that issue...
Well my knowledge with Freezing is this and it is accurate 98% of the time... give myself 2% room...
After the computer starts up and it comes to the welcome screen this means that all your hardware passed its initial test and all your software required for windows passed theirs as well...
Now when it comes to freezing, this usually 99.9% of the time is software related... If it mostly occur when you go online or use itunes then the suggestion would be this and as simple as it sounds it resolved 99% of my software issue..
Uninstall both Itunes and the Software for your USB/Air Card, after which reboot see if it comes back up with the same freezing... if it does then it could be more of a corruption in the OS like viruses...
If it works fine then install the softwares back one by one, the aircard first then test it out, and if freezes could still be a corrupt OS, uninstalling and reinstalling is the solution naturally for any software glitches... try Getting Itunes back on and then see if it does the same...
IF you get it resolved great, if they dont and it still freezes i would recommend running a scan on your system... matter of fact even if it seems like it is all fixed run a scan on your system...
great program here...MBAM...Malwarebytes Anti-Malware... http://malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Download the free version great one and run a full system scan see what the result says...
goodluck...

It sounds like a defect in the USB circuit on your system board. (This assumes that the problem occurs with any USB port). You might be able to add a PCMCIA board to add USB funcionality without replacing the system board to save money.

I am trying to download itunes onto my laptop but it wont let me download more than 76%


you sure your problem is the 'download' part?? or is it the installation part??

if it's the download part I would suggest for you to attempt to download the installation file in another computer, put it on the thumb drive and bring it over to the laptop where you want to install the itunes.

if you have problems installing itunes you probably may want to uninstall
the following programs and in the following order
  1. iTunes
  2. QuickTime
  3. Apple Software Update
  4. Apple Mobile Device Support
  5. Bonjour
  6. Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)
if you can't uninstall them with 'add and remove programs', I would suggest to use this windows uninstaller and clean up utility

only once you have uninstalled all the programs above, run the itunes installer and all the programs updated will be installed one at a time.

hope this helps

Computer wont start-up


Hi,
If I get you right, after you plug the xternal drive to transfer some file, the system didn't come up. Right?
Well, let me assume yes. If that is the case, I will advise you to boot the system from an external disk and use it to scan the local hard disk for virus. After that, remove the x-hard disk and try to boot the system. If it doesn't work, then transfer all the files to the xternal hard disk and format the local hard disk for new use. Best of luck.

Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

Usb ports


Does it freeze once you start to use the burning software or just when the hardware is plugged in.

If its when you use the software, try reinstalling the software.

Otherwise, try reinstalling the DVD burner driver.

USB Ports crashing system


If you have done a system restore you have probably restored your problem with limewire also, although what it is that's related I don't know, it's more than likely a dial up or connection problem that is causing limewire to freeze yur system. Check your usb ports in device manager see if there is an exclamation mark or a cross, then refer to this solution for further checks. http://www.fixya.com/support/t125452-another_device_installation_underway
