To reset your TomTom device, do the following:

  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. On your model, the reset is on the bottom of the GPS.
  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

This is a common problem on all TomTom GPS units it is a problem in the operating program of the GPS, the 1st thing you need to do is press the reset button, if the problem persists after that you will need
to call TomTom support to see if any updates are avil to address this problem, I could not find anything but perhaps they haven't published t to the internet yet, but in any case i suggest ou contact the support center fro your GPS, they are the only only one that can supply any updated software.

Carrying the laptop from the left side freezes the screen. Nothing wrong with the hard drive. Possible shorting somewhere?

It sounds like a poor connection on the motherboard to screen cabling.
Get an authorised Sony repair service centre to take a look at it.

Black Screen

The first thing I would do after turning the computer on is check to see if the video output is being directed to the LCD screen. The output can be directed using the Fn key along with the key with the picture of the 2 monitors on the Function keys at the top of the keyboard. Hold down the Fn key and tap the other key once or twice,
Next, hook the computer up to an external monitor. Do the same thing with the Fn key to see if it's the LCD screen.
If the external monitor works, then you haven't correctly hooked up the LCD screen or it's bad.

While the iPhone certainly isn’t the first mobile handset to suffer from freezes, its functional breadth and the fact that many of its users install unsupported third-party applications make the device, generally, more freeze-prone.

settings can result in a reduction in or complete elimination of freezes:
  • Tap Settings on the home screen. Tap General. Tap Auto-Lock. Set to “Never.”
  • Tap Settings on the home screen. Tap Brightness. Turn Auto-Brightness off.

Motorola a1200 screen calibration

If the screen calibration is way off then it seems that you can't even click on the crosshair during screen calibration. However, tapping on the crosshair does seem to adjust the calibration a little in the right direction each time, it's just not obvious that anything happened. So the trick is just to keep trying - gently and repeatedly tap the same spot on the crosshair for several seconds - eventually the screen will calibrate.
