More than likely it's a heating issue. Does the laptop feel hot?

If not it could be a problem with the hard drive and / or memory.

If it's hot you'll need to blow the system out with some compressed air. If you get the same results then I would recommend pulling the hard drive and placing it into an external enclosure to back up any important files you might have, the hard drive could be failing. :0

Let me know what happens, I'm here to help ;)

I have a Sony VGN-FW17)J... It started freezing occassionaly about 20 minutes after stratup. A reboot would fix it and it ran fine. Then it would freeze minutes after bootup and restarting wouldn't help....


Probably has a dead fan inside and this is causing it to overheat. You will have to take it apart and replace the fan. To test if it is heat related spray duster or freeze spray inside it to keep things cool.

My gateway mx6920 keeps freezing if I let it sit for more then 15-20 minutes. If I start it in safe mode it does not do it. does anyone have any ideas?


does your screen saver go in after 15-20 minutes ? because if so then you might try disable it and check if it freezes. does it also freeze when you are using it or when its idle ?
