Asus Laptop freeze after starting

I rebooted in safe mode and did a system restore however it was also very slow and freeze a few times. From information gathered in the Internet I conclude the fan was not working anymore. It stopped working when the computer went in standby and freezed it on the standby page; Then I realised it was hot and the fan not working. I am so use to the fan noise than I am unable to say if it stopped working before I had problems starting the computer: I start the computer then open and I put my password it says loading your settings and it stays like that though it seems someting happen as there is a bit of noise coming from the computer like processing something but no fan.

    The computer is less than 2 years always on a desk allowing good airflow so no reason why the fan would have broken down. I haven't put any new programme either but Asus live updated is automatic so wondering if something has been updated and maybe settings changed, maybe the Bios that could have stopped the fan from working. Still looking for my invoice for the guarantee.

If the fan does not work... don't use the computer till you replace the fan with one that is working.... a good chance you will burn out the cpu. usually thermal shutdown occurs when the cpu gets too hot... you may also want to consider purchasing a notebook cooler....

    there is no reason the fan would stop due to an update... be that as it may if it has stopped.... continuing to use it will result in damage to the cpu... why chance that... just on the outside chance it is dust and dirt .... remove the covering over the fan and inspect and clean it if possible.

System Recovery


Hit the Power Button and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode Options. Select Safe Mode and see if it will boot up. If it does shut down normally and reboot.

Try safe mode again, and this time when it comes up click Start/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. (If you have windows 7 click Start then type System Restore in the search box and select it when the results are returned). Select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. Don't worry, System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.


If it happens again on the reboot, get back into safe mode again and see if you can force it to run the check disk utility the next time it starts up. In Safe Mode click Start/Accessories and look for the RUN command. Type cmd and press ok. It will bring up a dos prompt (black screen with white lettering). Type chkdsk /r and press enter. If it says something about drive is locked and it will do it on the next reboot, then select yes.

Read the Manual for System Recovery.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ASUS Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for System Recovery.

Laptop froze in mid-use. Tried to reboot. I cannot get past the login/welcome screen. I cannot click on anything or open any programs. Please help. This laptop is only 3 months old. Thank you!


There are many reason's why you are facing that problems. To deal with it, make it sure that your laptop is having a good ventilation and not overheated. You must have the ventilator so that it will blow away the heat of the processor and cooling down the hot laptop. Because if the assigned temperature reach the computer will get slow and freeze. Another reason is also the viruses, these viruses will make your computer slow and freeze so you must have anti-virus and latest or updated virus definition.

The remedy

1. When turning on your laptop tapping F8 and then select safe mode. To select you can press arrow up or down and when highlighted the safe mode press enter. In some cases there are appearing on your screen while loading just press enter, ok or yes. Try saving or back up your documents or files to your flash drive, external drive or second hard drive ( Partition hard drive). After back up, Click start and programs and accessories and system tools and look for system restore. System restore has the capability to restore your computer to a good and working condition. Just select the date example you have mentioned that it was 3 months old. Meaning to say that you purchased it last November or December so click that month and select the day then click ok this will take an hour and this will automatically restart and check after loading if still having freezing.

2. Most of the laptop has the recovery software insert it to your cdrom drive and run the recovery. Follow the screen and this process will also restore your computer to a working condition but this delete or erase your entire data. That is why you have to back up first before performing restoring.

Have a nice day

Laptop reboots and intermittent blank screen


Hi,

you need to reinstall your windows. you might could even try a system back up.. this should fix your problem.

OR

Try starting up in safe mode, press F8 while its booting.

Once there, select start in safe mode.

Assuming all goes well, click on start - all programmes - accessories - system restore.

Restore to a date prior to your problems.

Freezing and beeping


You may have faulty RAM Module. Check that. OR a Bad Driver. Try start up in safe Mode, press F8 at boot up. Choose Safe Mode Desktop, use it like that for a while, if it works in this mode, well, if it does, then you most likely have a driver fault. You will have to go to device manager ans see if there are any yellow crosses on any entry in there if there is uninstall the driver, and delete driver, and try a reboot. If it is still faulty, reboot, go back to Safe Mode, and have a search for the thing, or program, that is causing the problem.

HP dv9700 was working fine. Re booted after it froze and now it's super slow. 20 min for password screen to come up. HELP!!


If it is extremely slow, then what has happened it alot of windows has corrupted. If you have your recovery disc, the simplest method is to stick in the first disc and reboot to it.

Fix the boot sector with it.

My Asus Laptop M2400N Will not boot up


If it boots in safe mode it means there's something the the startup causing problems. To find it, start in safe mode - run MSCONFIG from the run command - Select the Startup Tab - click diable all - reboot. If its till doesn't startup do the same with the services tab. from here its a process of elimination. Tick boxes on and reboot. You should then identify what's causing the problem - also check the event viewer in safe mode as that may also provide a clue.

I have a dell latitude c600 that only loads in safe mode, every time i turn the laptop on it freezes can any one help?


boot up in safe mode. Start -> run -> sysedit.

De-select all items on bootup. Now reboot. If that works, then re-run the utility, check one thing at a time, reboot, and test. Keep going until you find the culprit -- then remove that item.

Another easy fix, depending on your version, is to run system restore and bring it back to a point in which it worked. Start-programs-accessories-system tools/system restore

hope that helps.

My ASUS X83v laptop wont start up, it keeps rebooting.


Try booting in safe mode...if you are able to get into safe mode without it rebooting then you have a driver problem, Try updating all drivers and see if that works. If you can't even get into safe mode, then it could be either, Bad RAM, Motherboard, Corrupted Hard drive or power supply.

To trouble shoot Ram, if you have more than one piece, take all out except for one and try it, if it works, then try the other piece of RAM in the same slot, then try both in the other slot, this will tell you if it's your RAM or your RAM slot.

Motherboard, not much you can do

Corrupted Hard disk, try booting into safe mode with command Prompt and run chkdsk utility on your drive

Power supply, make sure the battery is charging, if possible try another battery fully charged for the same model, remove battery and plug laptop in, unplug and just use battery..


Hope some of this helps you
