Laptop Hanging Problems


Laptop hang issues can be a frustrating issue for the user and a tedious problem for a technician.


The variety of causes for this event are staggering, but many can be diagnosed in a few simple steps.


Peripheral Issues


USB drives, inserted before boot, will cause a hang.

Remove all such devices and media (such as CDs and floppy disks) before booting your laptop.


Software Causes


Press "F8" at boot and press "Last Known Good Configuration" to take your laptop to a previous working boot. Starting your laptop in "Safe Mode" by pressing "F8" at boot will help

you check for software causes for a hanging laptop.


By turning off unnecessary processes, this mode allows you to run anti-spyware and antivirus software to clear malware that hinders performance.

Perform a check disk by right-clicking on your "C Drive" found in "My Computer."


At the "Properties" link, press the "Tools" tab to schedule error checking.

Reboot your laptop and let it perform this check.


Hardware Causes


Verify that your RAM is seated correctly by removing it carefully from under its access door on the bottom of your laptop and reinserting it.

Do not touch its gold contact points, as this may damage the memory.


Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software to test the integrity of the hard disk.

If you have access, run a professional hardware diagnostic suite to check the motherboard and CPU.


Boot with the battery removed to verify that there is not an issue with power conflicts.


Final Considerations


Checking the "Event Viewer from Administrative Tools" located in "Control Panel" (XP only) can also shed light on potential causes.


Performing a repair installation of Windows can address missing files, registry errors and corrupted system files without damaging your data.


This process requires your original Windows disks but is often quite useful.


Press windows button and in the search type msconfig go to startup tab and uncheck those you dont want to start.


scroll to the bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click you can select task manager applications also processes you will see whats running on your computer and ticking over you might have a virus

My sony vaio laptop is always hang 5 to 7 mins. but mouse pointer is still moving. all application im working are stuck a few minutes. what are the possible solution for this problem. i do reformat but...


Please backup the data by logging in to Safe Mode, please restart and start pressing F8 key to select Safe Mode then re-install the Windows 7 Operating System using the Recovery Disc or recovery Partition of the Hard Drive. The Recovery Partition can be accessed by restarting the computer and try pressing F10 Key. The Windows XP Operating System is displaying an error because it does not have SATA Driver to detect the Hard Drive. As Windows 7 has it, you can re-install it from recovery partition.
