You may have a problem with standby versus hibernation mode. Go into control panel and look for your power options. You need to look for power options for standby etc. Ideally you should not allow your computer to hibernate. Some laptops just wont come out of hibernation mode successfully so preventing it is a good option. Secondly scan your laptop for viruses at the earliest opportunity

Sony Vaio laptop (PCG-61317L) once I start browsing the internet, the screen freezes and the mouse cursor disappears from screen. When I don't browse the internet, it sometimes does the same thing


The reason this is happening is that as you are typing; you're resting some weight on the thin plastic above the touchpad...which then makes contact and registers a 'click'; thus moving your cursor around. Or you're brushing your thumb against it when hitting the space key.

Some laptops are more susceptible to this than others. Some more modern laptops come with a button to turn the touchpad off to solve this very problem.

The only thing you can do about this is to disable the touchpad through the touchpad driver (down by the clock, usually) and use a mouse instead. Depending on how you use your laptop, this will be more or less inconvenient- if your laptop never leaves the desk; disable the touchpad and use a mouse...no problem. If you go mobile a lot, you'll have to enable and disable the touchpad all the time.

The other thing you can do is adapt your typing style so you don't put any weight on anything but the key you're pressing. This is quite difficult and uncomfortable, and is not recommended for long sessions.

Does your laptop manage to boot up to windows and then freeze or does it freeze before it starts to boot up?

If it freezes before bootup, it sounds like a bad motherboard and/or processor.

Please respond...

Laptop/ model LF1 aspire 6920 series keeps freezing up [NOT RESPONDING}has been reformated still doing the same thing


This is often caused by the CPU overheating.
Possible causes=

  1. CPU fan not turning (check that air flow is exiting case)
  2. CPU cooling vents clogged by lint or dust (blow out with compressed air)
  3. laptop resting on pillow or other smothering condition not allowing air flow under it
  4. heatsink compound between CPU chip and heatsink has dried out (remount CPU chip)
other possible but less likely: memory problem

Note: any CPU work or memory replacement should be performed using anti-static techniques to prevent more damage to components.
