  • archer6 May 10, 2009

    help when i play club pogo after about 15-30 minutes it freezes my whole pc not just the game. it use to just freeze the game then i would get a error bug in my applet .and then i would just log back in to the game. but know it,s freezing the whole pc.some times it will unfreeze after a few minutes but other times it will freeze perminatly .and then i would have to shut down my pc and boot up again witch takes for ever. if i uninstall club pogo and reinstall it will this problen go away or is thier a bigger problem.

    brought the cooling fan and it seamed to work, once i am on it doesnt freezes so ofton. but when i put it in sleep mode it doesnt come back,i still have a black i have to turn it off completely and re boot and it still takes for ever.sometimes it turns of and on by it self and it will go on for a long time until i turn it off and try and reboot again this will go on all day until i get lucky and it actuallyboots up and gets to desk top. once i get thier its fine for a few hours.why is it take so long to boot up some time it boots up right away (it,s rare ) and then most of the time it takes hours.

  • archer6 May 18, 2009

You need do some thing follow:
1) clean the cpu fan and sink(around there dirdy)
2) check the cpu fan is running and stop ok when power on if running go next
3) check the cpu fan, is there any running and stop then see it run again before the laptop freezen?
4) if the fan not running again before freezen that your fan control circuit out of work on the motherboard need to repair
5) if the fan running control ok that the fan can run and stop and run again. you have to add a EXT cooling base under the laptop
hope to help you solve it

    Frank Zhang May 09, 2009

    ok java likes windows all updates are improving the system function. it is depends on what function are you using, I recommend you instal all feature updates well

  • Frank Zhang
    Frank Zhang May 10, 2009

    yes, if your laptop freezen is not frequently and the cpu fan clean done well, it is better use a EXT cooling base. three years laptop like your model it is common cooling weak.

  • Frank Zhang
    Frank Zhang May 11, 2009

    ok, acording your describe,

    1) are you clean the cpu fan and sink (the coper cooling filter)?

    2) are you sure the cpu fan can see running again before freez?

    3) if it seem the laptop cpu fan working not normall that means the

    cpu fan never runing again cause tempreture higher, if it is ture you need find a technician help you fix it. otherwise, if 1)and 2)ok, that you need add a cooling base under where.

    4) usualy uninstall some big utility like club pogo (I do not know how big it) and others could be reduce cpu heating.

    hope the idea help you fix it

    Hi, summary all your laptop symptom, your laptop actually is the a BGA chip which works do not stable, it is video controler and no cooling fan sink its heating there, so the unstable is very sensitive by the temperature rise up. this trouble also let you know put laptop on the table better than rough surface and more stable. and do not use longer time or in the higher temperature. finally you need send to a laptop specialist to fix it, it is the ATI chip BGA problem.

    hope it give you some idea.

  • Frank Zhang
    Frank Zhang May 18, 2009

    so, you feel the laptop works much better, after using a cooling fan, but only a problem when standby or sleep mode using, in this case I just give you other point:

    1) maybe your RAM works unstable, it could be lost data agaist you restart possible. so change other RAM to try.

    2) you need to know there different between standby( hardware working) and sleep( hardware power off) mode, so standby cause hardware long time working, it is not good at a older laptop. because the laptop working longer time, it should be got higher temperature inside which easy damage some big BGA chip.

    any question please !

This is mainly caused by your power supply and your CPU fan.

Try to buy a laptop battery cooling fan. Or pulling some water on your adapter.

I do not know this unit so this is only a guess on my part.

I am not sure what you are by it shuts off for days. If it is hot that may also cause it to shut down but for less then an hour. The manual can be found by googling:

Several of the manuals show up. Be sure CGFI is OK.

This is what I found in the manual. Measure your water temperature it may be OK.

FREEZE PROTECTION - There are two(2) levels of freeze
protection integrated into the system.
1 - SMART WINTER MODE, this mode will activate any time the
temperature falls below 59BF. This mode will be active for a period
of 24-hours. In this mode, if a pump has not been activated in the
last 2 hours, the system will automatically turn it on for 1-minute
to prevent freezing. The "Filter Cycle" indicator will illuminate
while this mode is active.

pump will be activated until the water temperature reaches 50BF.

Keeps shutting down and takes several trys to start again only to shut down later

If the computer is overheating it will shut down to save the hardware from heat damage, the temp is pre set. It may get hot, due to air flow in a minute or and hour. What does the "screen comes up says problem " say? Check the fan and vents for dust and clean, improve air flow around bottom vents and side vents. Perhaps a Laptop Cooler? When the computer shuts down unepectedly, the computer see it as a crash and will load in that option screen. Run a 'Check Disk" on the OS drive buy opening computer in start menu, right click the drive with the OS (C), open properties, Tools, Check now, choose all options, follow instructions, reboot.

How do I get it to down load windows? When I shut down It says installing updats 1 of 2 for about 1 hour and than 2of 2 for another hour every time I close down.

This can be due to faulty errors that have crept into the operating software and it could be that some registry files are missing or corrupt. If you have a recovery disc, then it can be installed and the software corrected. If not the OS must be reinstalled. Also check for virus and clean up the PC from unwanted files specially the browser from cookies and search history.

Refrigerator runs almost all day

Your refer will run about 85% of the time, But if your refer items are freezing i would recommend you replace the refer t-stat. The only time your unit will shut down is when it's in a defrost ( about every 8 hours for 30 Min's or less ) and by your t-stat when it reaches temp, if you have it set to a warmer setting and it's freezing you items then for sure you have a bad t-stat. Hope this helps you
