Gateway laptop hang issue

Purchased a Gateway laptop recently from the U.S. It has a Intel Core2 Duo Processor and 3GB memory.

Recently I have noticed ,the laptop hangs in the middle of an application .
Even when I rebbot the system,it remains hanged.I have to perform several reboots to restore the normal functioning.

The hang generally happens after 5-10 mins of system startup.
Regardless of the application ,the system hangs.

I am using a Windows Vista Premium home version.

Kindly help me with this issue.Also do let me know if any additional dettails are required.

Check the Windows Page File to determine whether it's system managed or manually set. The recommended settings is twice the amount of RAM installed in the machine. If set too low the system will hang often, especially when running memory hungry apps.

I would also suggest checking screensaver and power management options in the control panel.

If those don't work, close any unused applications which run at startup (Start, Run, MSCONFIG). Another possible solution could be updating your display driver.

My Wifi is not working. My laptop sound is scratchy. I want to upgrade my processor from celeron to core 2 duo which one i should select for cpu upgrade?

Two main things to know before you can attempt a Processor upgrade.

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard?

2) What motherboard chipset is on the motherboard?
(Northbridge and Southbridge chip. Unless it's a motherboard that supports Intel Core 13, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)



According to specifications I found online just now, the BenQ Joybook A53 comes with an,
Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://laptops.techfresh.net/benq-joybook-a53/

Scroll down.

(Only 512MB's of DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory that operates at 667Megahertz?
{ PC2-5300} Yecch! You need at LEAST 1GB of ram memory. (512MB + 512MB = 1GB.
2GB would be best)

Information on the Intel mobile Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Core_2_Duo_2

Scroll the page down until in the left column you see T7250. Then read across, and match the headings above.

Uses a Socket M processor socket,

Is your problem directed to a BenQ Joybook A53 Notebook PC, or is it another model?

Most laptops you can buy for under 1500 and it will have most of the stuff that this sony has, your paying for the name honestly.

Keep in mind it is a intel core2 duo processor so thats the main reason why the price is up. Unless your running high end programs, stay away from this laptop.

Mac keeps shutting off by itself

Hello, this is called a "hard reboot" and can occur because of faulty RAM memory (have you added extra ram recently?).
It can also come form a dead hard drive, or a dead fan, causing overheat

Cpu enquiry

There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

I hope this answered your question.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
