There are a multitude of reasons why a cursor may be frozen. If you start your laptop in safe mode does it still freeze?
Repeatedly press F8 while your laptop turns on to get into safe mode.
You may have a lot of programs loading in the background that could cause your computer to freeze
Does the keyboard freeze at the same time?
You may have a bug. You may start by going to control panel and see how many programs are trying to start up at the same time. When my laptop does that I normally go to the control panel and stop programs and keep them from turning on at start up. you really dont need all programs to start up at the same time. This may cause freezing and longer times to start at start up.
If your notebook locks up or stops responding while using a program, close the stalled program to continue using other programs. Also, while closing the program, take note of which other programs are running at the same time.

How many MB YOUR RAM/ may you have lowest of Ram 256MB/ or 512MB only.....that why freezing your laptop. make it upgrade your RAm ...now adays all programs are updated to new versions.. if you using os xp -- sp2 or sp3 or higher than.. atlest you have minimun of ram 1 or max. 2gb..if VISTA min. 1 max 2 or 3GB
also alot of viruses.spyware or all unwanted programs. programs can make slow of operating system....., check first your programs then hardware .. change it if nessesary.
HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR POWER OPTIONS
remove any programs you no longer need from control panel add remove
then do a disk cleanup from start-program files-accessories-system tools then restart run disk defrag
do you have programs start as soon as you turn on pc
like msn etc
this will slow it down
barb, I have an A75 satellite and have similar problems. I have upgraded ram (corsair 2G) and also new hard drive now running XP pro. From what I have observed, the computer runs without problems anytime I use an external keyboard & mouse and freezes if I do not. While it doesn't freeze every time, it does it regularly, somewhere around 10% of the time. I have done the following; used it while wearing different footwear, shoes, tennis shoes, socks etc and noticed it freezes when I wear either tennis shoes or acrylic / nylon socks, it does NOT freeze when I am barefoot or have good shoes on, or when I use it on hard floors off of carpeted areas. I am certain my problem is related to static discharge and a poorly grounded front cover as the unit locks up the instant I rest my wrist on the front to start typing etc. This is a fairly well known problem with the satellite series and there are a number of fixes ranging from having the inside of the cover modified to be better grounded all the way up to replacing the cover with a newer type which apparently addresses the issue. Good luck.
