Processor or RAM cache is probably overheating. Could also be hard drive overheating. Newer OSes like Vista make more intense use of the cache, as well as of the RAM and graphics chips. They also read and write to the HD more often, which generates more heat. To test, start the computer and time it with a stopwatch to freezing. Then, place the laptop in a colder environment, such as on top of an AC duct, and test again. If it takes significantly longer to freeze up, the problem is thermal. It should be under warranty, and the retailer or manufacturer can fix or replace it if so. Another thing to try is defragmenting the drive. Fragmentation can put much extra strain on the system, as it has to scan the drive longer and more often for needed files. If the HD is nearly full, try removing some files. BTW, Windows 7 or XP are better choices for reliability versus Vista.

Hello,

This is likely to be as a result of your processor over-heating, maybe because of your environment, or because the fan is not cooling the processor properly again.

Therefore my suggestion would be for you to unscrew your laptop (If you can do it by yourself), and try to clean, or better still replace your processor fan.

If you cant do it by yourself, you can easily get a technician to do it for you.

I have actually had the same case before, and after doing what I've just told you, it stopped behaving like that.

And you are also still very lucky, because after a while, if the case worsens, the system will not just get stuck, but it will power-off automatically.

Then always make sure that your laptop is in a well ventilated, cool environment and that the environment is free from dusts.

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

My cg100 camera always freezes is this common.


Seems to be quite normal. The manual says on page 133:

If your device freezes or hangs, you may need to close programs or reset the device to regain functionality. If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Power button for 6-8 seconds. The device reboots automatically.
If this does not solve the problem, perform a factory data reset. On the Applications screen, tap Settings > Backup and reset > Factory data reset > Reset device > Erase everything.

ONDA V110 keeps rebooting?


after some research it looks like your best option is to send it back. There is no recovery partition on this device so you cannot reset it to factory defaults.

When i turn on the power to my router, all of the lights turn on and freeze


Try to reboot your router...normally reboot are two types...

In Netgear router, when you change the router configuration, it does a "soft reboot", which is related to the operating system reboot.
And a "hard reboot" is usually done by removing power from the router and rebooting it after powering it off for several seconds.

->open your browser and login your router page using username and password..
->Click the Diagnostics option which is under the Maintenance on the left hand side of your Netgear setting page.
->Then click the Reboot button and it will automatically reboot your router.

***Reboot process can vary depending on different Netgear wireless router models.

How do i reboot my hp laptop and it is win XP


If the system is still running and you would like to reboot, click "Start" then "Turn Off" and then select/Click "Restart".

Or you can also press Alt+F4 and then select/click "Restart".

If the system freezes or hangs and you need to reboot, try pressing "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" simultaneously, if this works, then Windows Task Manager will open up, if so, click the "Shutdown" menu and select "Restart".
If this is not the case and your computer doesn't respond to any of the above methods, your only option is to remove the battery and reinstall it back and then turn on the laptop.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
