    No it freezes after working on it (but while working on it) for a short while or when left unused for a few minutes.

    Don't understand how screensaver freezes (or starts!) while you're working; do you mean it freezes as soon as it starts?

Could be overheating - can you hear the fan working? Try installing temperature monitoring software such as Speedfan.

Restore toolbar. It did not return when screensaver had been showing and I tried to get back to work again.

Do a hard re-boot, hold down the power button until the lap top turns off. Then re-start and check to see if everything is ok.

Image pad light comes on ocassionally, lap top freezes, can not turn off. HP Envy Windows 7

Good Day,
For clarifications, is it that the computer freezes or the mouse pad doesn't work again while the keyboard still works?
Because for your type of laptop, around the top left corner of your mouse pad, there is a small hollow. If you double tap this place, you deactivate the mouse pad and if you repeat the tapping, you activate it. That's why the light there comes on and off. So may be you check it to know if you tap here during your typing.
I hope this helps you? Thank you for using Fizya!

I won't shut down my laptop

Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

My laptop keeps on freezing, or shutting down itself.

Isolate the issue by accessing safe mode, keep on tapping F8 button while system is starting and then choose safe mode on the advance boot option that will be listed on the screen. You may need to use the UP or DOWN arrow keys to scroll on the list and then press Enter button to select. Check if the system is still freezing inside safe mode, you may see that the desktop background goes black but don't worry this is normal since safe mode disables some running software on the background.

If system stops freezing while inside safe mode it means that youre having a software issue, perform system restore by clicking
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore
You should choose the date before the problem occured on the list of dates and click next to revert back the system to its previous state before the issue occured. Just follow the step by step procedure that will pop up on the screen then upon clicking the last button (Finish), Restart the computer.

If system didnt stop freezing while inside safe mode it means that you need to check the hardware components of system.

check if the system bottom part was hot to touch - if it is your having a system fan or heat sink problem that triggers the system to turn itself off automatically. This mechanism of your machine was made intentionally to make sure that the end user wont have any accidental issues.

You may need to contact the system manufacturer (if system was still under warranty) to have the system fan/heat sink replaced. If warranty was already expired you need to go to local computer service center to have this fix.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

The lap top freezes everytime I touch the keyboard and try to typ

Start it in safe mode by shutting it off and starting it up, and continuously tap the F8 button. When it prompts you with a black screen with white letters click on "safe mode". Then you should be able to restore it

SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.

first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.
