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

Wespro n720 hanging at loading os image how to solve this problem


You don't state the OS but usually it is a damaged system file.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It`ll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". On Win 7 or Vista: Ctrl+Alt+Delete won`t work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset Deluxe

My neo BASIC5100N "hangs" all the time


Depending on the version of windows that is on that machine you may need to update the drivers. You also could have an issue with the BIOS being an older version. Lastly you should check the power saving settings.

Gateway laptop hang issue


Check the Windows Page File to determine whether it's system managed or manually set. The recommended settings is twice the amount of RAM installed in the machine. If set too low the system will hang often, especially when running memory hungry apps.

I would also suggest checking screensaver and power management options in the control panel.

If those don't work, close any unused applications which run at startup (Start, Run, MSCONFIG). Another possible solution could be updating your display driver.
