I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q freezing up problem.

What has most likely happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will freeze, lock up, or be unable to start up.

This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware.

The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.)

If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times.

My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone.

I hope that helps.

My samsung galaxy s6 edge is about 15 months old. it switches itself on and off, freezes frequently, and gets very hot. can you help?


I would try a factory reset. Make sure you back up all data as it will be lost. If that doesn't work the a new battery would be next. If it continues to act up then you have a hardware problem and it needs to be repaired.

I think at this point, you should consider using your recovery disc if you have one before the system freezes up.

The coils freezes up frequently. Most recently,


If your defrost timer is not working then you will have problems with freezing the coils. When it is humid out and you are in and out of the unit the problem will be worse. To eliminate this problem you will need to get and install the timer. Do a search for "appliance parts" and checkout a number of the suppliers as the prices can vary a lot. All you need to find your part is the model # and sometimes serial# of your unit.

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently


check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.

Frequent freezing of mouse,and unexpected shut down


the mouse is freezing because, you have either too many programmes running at start up, conflicting drivers, slow start up anti virus programmes, or you may have a virus or trojan/spyware programme running in the background. The shut down could be a processor overheating problem, so check all your vents and fans for clogged up dust and ensure your pc is well ventillated.

Freezing


The freezing may be because the logs are full. I had this issue and then set the log levels to "7 days". Everything worked well after that. I found this solution on some other website.

Press "Cntl-Shift-L" and then press Menu. Under "Tools" you will find the option to set Log Duration. Before that, you should clear your log. Hope this helps.
