TOSHIBA SATELLITE L505D LAPTOP MOTHERBOARD V000185210 AMD start ok then freeze after seconds no any action what could be the reason ?


This problem occurred when your processor goes overheating due to fan and heat-sink problem.

Solution is that just clean your fan and heat-sink and then replace them. When you will start your laptop after this small service, the problem will has been removed.

Good Luck

My HP netbook keeps freezing. I don't know whether its due to overheating. But everytime when it freezes, its very hot. Another problem is, when i shut down my netbook, it always restarts by itself....


Hi xinyi pang17,

I have heard of this problem many times and it is usually due to overheating and motherboard problem. But first thing that you need to check is if the fan is working properly or not. You can use a canned air to blow out dust and accumulated particles from the fan.

However, freezing may also be caused by faulty processor. The unit may freeze (and overheat) while booting up, while using the computer or before the operating system loads if the processor is failing. To verify if the processor is failing, just access the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup and test if it will overheat from there. If it does, surely the processor and/or motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a problem with my widescreen. I have a laptop (HP Pavilion dv2418ca, Windows Vista, Memory 2,00 GB, Processor Intel (R) Core (TM) Duo CPU, 32-bit Operating System) and my widescreen...


It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.

check the processor fan if is blowing well . if the processor fan is blowing well then check if the processor is not too hot for you to add a cooling paste on it and then the problem if that persist then check the memory module and re-sit it on another slot then blow then blow the other slot out in case of dust ok

IBM T41 WILL NOT STARTS UP SOMETIMESTHEN WHEN IT DOES IT FREEZES


Hi,

problems will be with:-
1:- installed memory ( not enough or damaged memory module ) RAM
2:- The Processor ( CPU ) Is Overheating.
3:- Hard-Drive. The unit may have bad or defective sectors.
4:- Computer Virus Or Similar.

Solution:- remove 1 memory module from the computer ( located on the underside computer ) boot the computer. see if this helps. try changing memory between the 2 allocated slots.

Check the CPU Fan, is not clocked with dust/debris. ( Can be accessed by removing 2 screws on the underside or the laptop ) Marked with >> or similar. remove the fan, 3 small screws and brush with a soft dry paint brush or similar, remove any dust from fan and check for blockages.

run a scandisk or hard-drive checking program, to test hard-disk unit et,c.

following these steps, should solve your problems.
