Re: laptop frozen

Sounds like you're not getting out of the Post....when starting up try getting in to the post screen. To do so is different with most mfgs but it's usually one of the 'F' keys (F8,F2,F9, etc)

Some times the start screen will even show you what options are available. Either way you'll need to see where the system is hanging.

My computer is froze on a windows update screen it says t is on 3 of 3. It won't let ne move my mouse and it seems to be frozen what do I do

depending on the update to windows it might take a little while for this to complete, just leave it on for a bit, if it is stuck on 3 of 3 for more than 45 mins then it was probably an error and you will have to forcefully restart your computer by holding down the power button for 5 seconds and hope that your computer recovers after the reboot

Best I can think is use a usb keyboard to get online with it and use a program such as Driver Detective to scan and see if your missing some drivers or if MS (this is common) updated to an invalid driver.

Cursor frozen and cannot cut the computer off or move the cursor

Ok try to boot in native DOS if the unit still froze. If it froze then check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser only its edge connector. Do this when battery is disconnected and no any other power source is connected to the unit.

Then if it run native DOS. If you can backup your important files, installation code. This will end restoring your unit to restore factory, do you have your restore disc?

Or you can try first to run in safe mode/repair options. Check if it can do some system restore.

Laptop Wont Boot Up

In that situation, try to boot it in SAFE MODE. You get into this by pressing F8 during boot up. The menu will come up and you choose the mode you want. While in safe mode you will have to try and use system restore to go back to when the computer was working. It's like PC time travel.
