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.

Hello All, My dell latitude e5510 freezes when I try to play some videos, it may work for some time but it freezes after some time. This happens quite more times and I can only exit form the situation...


The laptop may be overheating. Check that all vents are clear and dust free. Listen for the internal fan. This should operate only occassionally. If it is operating all the time and speeds up just before the laptop freezes then something is causing the laptop to overheat. If the fan cannot be heard at any time, then the fan may be faulty.

Toshiba laptop


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...

Screen shakes and it freezes


i suspect a possible loose contact between the ribbon connecting the motherboard module to the LCD display module. if you can open up the laptop, check if the both the ends are snug and tight.
