My computer is frozen on preparing for stand by. Wat should I do? The mouse works. I have tried pressing and holding down the power button Have also used ctrl alt del and ctrl alt esc all at once

Hold the power button down for more than 5 seconds and this will force the computer to shut down, if that fails, which it shouldn't, but if it does as much as i don't want to recommend this, unplug it, this will ensure the shutdown. Also get some sort of antivirus to check and see if there is anything impeding the standby, I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials paired up with Malware Bytes to ensure no viruses eek there way through your system.

Laptop stuck at Preparing to Standby

Your Operating System is corrupted.
You need to repair it by performing a repair using your Opareating System (OS) installation CD.

If you are using Windows XP, another alternative would be to install/reinstall service pack 3.
This version fixes errors, but may fail to install if errors wont let it.
In that case you will have to perform a system repair using your OS installation CD.

Download an official copy of service pack 3 from the link below:

Computer froze

When you format a drive if windows was on it, it will no longer be which would be what would cause the freezing. Hold down the power button and then check the machine again.

Locked up


Try removing the battery, then hold down the power button for 10secs and then put the battery back in, then connect the power cord back up and switch it on.

Once you get back to the desktop run a test on the HDD.
