Sony vaio PCG-7142L keeps freezing


Can check if the battery is low ... or is not (or cannot) holding a good charge ... when you unplug it (from the charger) ... when this happens ?

If that is the case, it may "freeze" while it is busy trying to store the contents of your memory before it shuts down (or hibernates). Does it shut down (or goes into hibernate if you let it continue to "freeze") for a while ? If so, then it's your battery.

If the battery doesn't hold a good charge, the laptop will run only a short time (while unplugged) before it has to shut down due to low battery. And if this is the case, consider getting a replacement (new) battery. And follow the initial charging instructions (for a new battery) to lengthen the life of the battery.

Restart or get off programs that seem to make it freeze a lot. Try to restart it and when it does shut it down and start it back up. Then restart it again.

My toshiba satellite series keeps freezing up when idle and I have to do a force shut done, any suggestions?


Best suggestion is to back up your files and reinstall the OS.
If it freezes while idle, some necessary data is most likely corrupted.
Force shut downs often cause system files to corrupt.

Lately, my laptop (Winbook) has been overheating and shutting down. Any ideas?


3 possible causes for this:
  1. Bad Power Supply....heating up and shutting down
  2. Bad Motherboard...heats up and freezes
  3. Bad Heatsink/processor....fan/heatsink no longer keeping processor cool enough to operate shutting your machine down
If when the laptop overheats, it just shuts down and doesn't freeze or lock up, it's most likely the Power Supply. If it just freezes/locks up, its much more likely that the problem lies with the motherboard. Hope this helps with your laptop problem. Best of luck.
