Unfreeze text on laptop


Depends what's causing it! Does the whole screen freeze or just the text?
It can happen if you have too many programs open and you do not have enough memory for the computer to do everything.
Does it always/often happen, and what are you doing when it happens?

Video card freezing


Things to test (you might already have tried some of these):
Do videos played from local storage (hard disk, memory stick, cd/dvd etc.) also freeze up or is it just videos from the web? If it does, the problem is likely to be something to do with your laptop, like video drivers.
To assess if it is a problem with a particular website try videos from a different website to see if they work. If they do, the problem is likely to be an issue with a particular website. (unlikely though since your computer freezes up but sometimes network timeout situations can lock up your computer)
If you have access to the internet in another location, try the same there. Do the videos from the same website still cause freezes? If it works ok, the issue could be related to your internet connection.
Ok, that was the "have-you-turned-it-off-and-back-on-again" checks. Now on to your system.
Video from the internet is most likely Flash video so browse to www.adobe.com and look for the Flash Player in their downloads. Download ind install the latest version.
Go to Sony's website and look for drivers for your laptop. In particular, check for updated video drivers and network drivers and download and install both.
Try using a different browser. Some browsers have problems vith the Flash Player. At the time of writing this Google Chrome is particularly troublesome with jittery video. I don't know your level of expertise but the three most common browsers are chrome - http://chrome.google.com, firefox - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ and internet explorer - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/internet-explorer/download-ie. Try all three flavours of browser but also download and install Flash Player in each browser.
Hopefully something here should help fix your issue. Please reply and let us know if any of this worked or if you tried it all and it still does not work.

Window hanging


Wait a few minutes for the non-responding program to start responding again. Be patient and give it some time. This is the easiest way to salvage any work that you did not save before the freeze. If, after waiting, the computer does not unfreeze, move to the next step.
Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Del" buttons in that order. This may unfreeze the computer, or bring up an option to restart, shut down or open the task manager. Open the task manager and note if a program is listed as "not responding." If there is one, click that program title and click "end task." The computer will end that task and break it out of the freeze. If this does not work, open task manager and go to "processes." Look for a process toward the top of the list that is using a large amount of resources. The number next to the process indicates how much of the resources are being allocated for that program. Pick one with the highest number (towards the top of the list) and choose "end process." If your computer still is not unfrozen, move to the next step.
Change the power source of your laptop. For example, if the laptop was plugged in to the wall, remove the plug and allow it to run on battery power. If this does not work, proceed to the next step.
Remove any devices, such as thumb drives or memory cards, that are plugged into the laptop. If this does not unfreeze the computer, move to the next step.
Close the lid of your laptop. Open the lid again. This may snap the computer out of its frozen state and back to the login screen. It may also put the computer into hibernate mode. If this does not work, move to the next step.
Hit the power button. This might bring up a menu asking you if you want to restart or shut down. At this point you will need to restart or shut down the computer. You will most likely lose what you were working on, unless the program has a recovery process to save your work if this situation arises. If the menu does not pop up, hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Wait 30 seconds, then boot the computer up again

My internal wireless card is failing. I purchased a new one. A tech told me if I replace the old wireless card with a new one the system won't load, something about HP locking the bios. Does anyone know...


The wireless card wont be locked to the bios. Swap it out and install the drivers once it is loaded. It will just see it as a new piece of hardware.If it doesnt work, take the new one out and put the old one back in, it wont destroy your computer.

I have a Toshiba lap top A 105. I have lost my internet


It is possible to disable the wireless connection with the keyboard. Try the combination of Fn and F8 buttons (this is a common Toshiba shortcut) to turn it back on. If that doesn't work, look at your Network Connections (through the Control Panel, assuming a Windows OS, if needed). Check the settings and if it is enabled. In the device manager, check if the wireless adapter has an exclamation point in a yellow triangle. If you have the exclamation point try letting Windows repair the driver. (You may need to access the Toshiba website for the correct driver. Either use a different machine and put the driver on a disc or USB driver or your machine's wired connection.) If that tells you it has no problems, remove the wireless connection (and uninstall the driver) and reboot the computer and it should see new hardware and start reinstalling the driver. Then you can try to establish a new wireless connection.

If the above solutions do not help, it's likely to be a hardware failure. You could get a new wireless adapter (USB or an appropriate card for your laptop add-on card slot), use the wired network (if that has worked), or consider a new machine.

Wireless card freezes my computer


This may be a driver glitch, uninstall the drivers and reinstall. If it still freezes, then it will be the card. Try a different card.
