It seems that the system files has got corrupted.
reinstalling the os will clear the problem.
If you are worried about your data, don't install the os by formatting the hard drive. just repair your existing os using the installation disc.
hopes this wil help you to overcome your problem.feel free to notify.

Sony Vaio P Series Netbook shows its charging but stills stays at 1percent availabe almost 3hours

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

TV is about 1 year old. Started yesterday having a black rectangle in the middle of the screen. Can press any button and it goes away but come's back in just a few seconds. Tv is a Element ELCHS321

most times a black rectangle pops up when closed captioning is on. sometimes there will be gibberish in it sometimes not. See if you have button on remote labeled "CC" . Also if you have a cable or sat box make sure closed captioning is switched off there too.

Freezer door won't stay shut

This indicates that you do not have good airflow and return airflow between your freezer and refrigerator sections. That is why the pressure from closing one door is causing the other one to pop open.

Check the drain tube on the back of the machine to make sure it is not clogged or blocked with frozen water inside. Also check any return air flow vents inside the unit for clear ice.
