Screen turn freeze

I own a laptop compaq v3000. I have it for almost 2 years.
This past few weeks, my laptop keep turning freeze where the screen will become distorted or totally in mess. And i realized it usually happen when i online and open clips at the same time. At first, i suspect the problem is with the ram, but i'm using 1.5 Gb of ram currently. So, i don't think that's the problem. Please help me.

Check for spyware (free copy on www.Lavasoft.com called ad-ware) and virus (if yours is out of date or not got one use AVG you can get this from www.download.com) , also check what programs that are running in the back ground as some freeware does slow your PC down a lot.

if you have a full copy of windows xp run it at boot up the run the windows recovery, this will mean you will not loss the data on you laptop. But its always best to back up your data before hand :) if this locks up on a recovery then your going to have to format the laptop and start again

I have a uniden utab430 that froze in the start screen


You should try to factory reset your Uniden tablet by pressing the Home and Power buttons simultaneously.

Also try and look up past answers for this problem on Fixya, before posting again.

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

Sony VPCEC1M1E keeps freezing


This is probably due to bad ram memory, remove one stick of ram and use the laptop normally, if no change, remove the second piece and replace the first.

Starts round and round in circles


HP and Compaq have issues just like that with several models. Go to the HP website and see if your model is one of them. If it is they will fix it for you at no charge, even if out of warranty. My wife just got hers back a few weeks ago for the same thing. They said they replaced the mother board. It took about 10 business days including shipping.
Hope this helps, if so please rate this assistance. Thanks,Tom

Frozen screen... !


Under a year? Still under warranty? Sound like bad video processor on the mainboard.

Boot the laptop, enter bios setup... let it sit there for a while and see if it does. If it does, then its a hardware problem and not a windows problem... but I am almost certain thats a video hardware issue... check for warranty repair.

Stuck on the Windows XP Welcome Screen


One of an important file needed to boot up your laptop, or your hardware is loose. Try taking out the ram and putting it back in.
