Most likely it's your hard drive going bad. You can replace it and not junk the unit.

Asus vivobook s200e freezing, then freezing on start up screen and automatic repair screen


I would complain to the company who sold it to you that it has gone wrong. They should at least honour some sort of warranty.

For the past couple of days, every show our DVR has recorded freezes a couple of minutes into playing it and the DVR reboots itself. This always occurs at the exact same time on that show. We don't have...


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. Since the DVR is the only thing having the freezing issue, it sounds like it maybe a hard drive issue. I would recommend resetting the receiver. Unplug it from the power supply for 10 seconds and then let the receiver reboot itself. If you are still having this issue, I would recommend calling Dish Network and we will need to replace the receiver. Hard Drive issues do not resolve themselves and only get worse over time. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Xbox 360 is freezing with no red rings and an intercooler?


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

As long as you stop most of the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU you will be fine.

You must be talking about the 522 DVR. If so then there could be issues with your hard drive or a cableing issue. be sure to connect all sat in connections and if you conitune to have this issue call 1-800-333-3474 for tech support as your issue could take extensive troubleshooting. More than likely your will get a replacement DVR and if you still have the same issue then a tech will need to come out to check cableing, ground and lnb's on your dish.

Hd channels are freezing up sound stays on just


Hey there, raeraekub! In order to assist you with this, I need to get a full understanding of the situation, so I'm going to ask you a few questions. First of all, is this issue still happening? If it is, try unplugging the receiver's power cord from the wall for 15 seconds then plugging it back in. If the problem continues, let me know what type of connection you have from the receiver to the TV. What type of TV do you have? With the DVR issue, is the freezing happening in the middle of watching a recording?

Freezes; sometimes resets by itself?


Most likely, it's your hard drive. It can be replaced, so you don't have to junk the unit.
