There is a processor in the pc/laptop/notebook it gets hot while you on the unit.to keep it cool there is a fan .if that fan is not spinning properly or getting blocked by any dust particles this happens.it is also possible that fan is now turned weak as its motor is turned weak.so it needs replacement to keep the processor cool.also to avoid further damage just dont use your notebook till it get repaired.

I have a medion 2210 mim laptop when i first switch it on it boots up then when on internet after half an hour it freezes then i have to wait a couple of hours to get back on the net and the same thin


The cause could be, as you said, that there is one component getting too hot and the computer go into protection mode and does not work anymore.
First of all you should check if you have any virus or malware that brings the processors and the ram to its maximum causing the computer to freeze.
Second of all you should update all of your drivers and programs (could be new version of browser or flash player).
If this does not solve the cause could be the fan that cannot make the component more cold. In this case you should bring the computer to assistance because it is not a simple work and also you will lose any warranty on the computer

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.

Very slow, freezes, jams, and is non responsive, I have to take battery out and wait for a an hour before putting battery in laptop, my computer is an acer 2350 travelmate, also when I bought this in...


This sounds like either a hard drive problem, when you power on the laptop there should be an option to enter BIOS or Setup (usually F2) once inside of the BIOS you should be able to run a diagnostic. and that will tell you if there is anything wrong with the hardware. If everything passes that test. you may have some serious Virus problems.

MY MOUSE PAD FREEZES UP OR MOVES AROUND ERRATICALLY WHEN COMPUTER IS TOO HOT HOW OT FIX IT?


try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts

and buy yourself a laptop cooler with built in fans

hope this helps

My Acer Aspire 1 netbook keeps freezing like every 30mins - 1 hour. No matter what im doing its really annoying please help -THNKS


Good sir/maam, the freezing symptoms can be caused by the following, so check each out.
  1. Bad memory module, you may need to swap memory modules on your aspire1.
  2. Bad registry on windows, to solve this you may need to reinstall your windows, but back up first your documents.
  3. A virus that makes your computer freeze, so scan regularly, after you have install your windows, immediately install anti virus softwares like AVG or Avira.
  4. Heating problem, caused by exhaust fan malfunction. check you laptop's fan if it blows out heat normally (moderate amount of hot air)
Feel free to ask again, and let me know your progress. hope this helps

Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

*************************************************
I suggest to you do the follow:

Start up your computer and before windows load hit F8, then select SAVE MODE

On SAVE MODE, uninstall all innecesary programs or recently installed, Clean your computer, and be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

After that reboot and work normally
This will be fixing your problem.

If the problem after that continues is probably then that your have some hardware issue.
