Laptop freezes when running applications

I got a G6 Pavilion - 2263ca with Windows 8. When I open an application on the start screen, the laptop freezes and closed. I ran a system recovery and all the system diagnostics, but nothing has changed and I can't find a hardware problem. I sent it for repair in the workshop, they replaced the HARD drive and reinstalled the OS but nothing changes. Right now, all I can do is reinstall the RAM, but seriously, I don't think it will solve the problem. Please help me :-(



Try the following.

In regards to the manual maintenance on the link below, delete one of your memory modules and then see if the laptop works Ok.  If it doesn't, try the same module, but in another location.  If it is still working properly, try the other memory module in both slots, to see if any combination will allow the laptop to run without freezing.

The procedure for withdrawal of these modules is detailed from Page 55 of your & Maintenance Guide.

Kind regards

  • Satellite A60 freezes when running on batteries

    I have a problem with my Satellite a60. I bought it a few months ago and he starts it freezes when running on batteries. I don't think it's a problem of software or memory. I did a few tests of memory...

    It usually occurs only minutes after startup, the keyboard is not working, the screen freezes (but you can still see the immagine!) and only the exit ramp button works... but it happens sometimes... like once a week maybe... anyone else had similar problems?
    Thank you for any response,

    Hi guys

    It is very difficult to say what may be the problem. In my opinion, there are several reasons for this. In the boot process, there may be some conflicts with background programs and services or certain hardware components. May be overwhelmed with all this processor and simply give up.

    If you wish, you can try to disable some startup items in the system configuration utility or disable certain hardware components not used in Device Manager. I don't know if this can solve your problem, but it will be interesting to know is there some success.

    Radek did you have this problem if the laptop is connected to the power supply?

    Sorry to hear the bad experiences your having with the new HP I have expected some resolution about HP for you, but I guess that your next step is to enter the HP support and talk to a Manager or supervisor and get a resolution a bit if you can the stock market that. Otherwise if an is another portable computer W8 wifi even goes down so you might go for W7 that is or is not hp laptop and I hope that your experience will be better this time.

  • laptop freezes when performing automatic maintenance

    My sony vaio SVE15137CGW (Windows 8) started to freeze when the automatic Maintenance starts (after staying idle for a few minutes). A black clock appears on the task bar, so I know that the service is running. I can market to stop the gel which is a real nuisance.

    What could cause this problem and how can I solve this problem? How can I disable the automatic maintenance until I solved the problem? I followed the instructions on the Web page below, but the interview turned on even once after a reboot:


    Automatic maintenance facilitates efficiency slowed and allows the activity to execute in a timely and prioritized way. So, the event that is configured to run will begin when the previously described (defined by default at 02:00 every day).

    the default configuration from the active automatic maintenance should do no harm at all. However, personal computers are not always lit, and nor are they heavily loaded by processes or data. Therefore, it is recommended to disable the automatic maintenance in personal computers to avoid the processing overhead.

    After the automatic maintenance turned off, you can manually optimize your PC by manually initializing the command CHKDSK of disk defragmentation, etc..

    You can check the link to find out how to disable the automatic Maintenance using Task Scheduler tasks:

    Refer to the suggestion which is marked as an answer:

    If you do not find the same performance after you disable the automatic Maintenance, reactivate tasks.

    Think about it an absolute must - manually update your drivers.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    Installation and update of drivers under Windows 7 (updated drivers manually using the methods
    above is preferred so that the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system and device manufacturers are

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

  • Laptop freezes when restored from sleep mode.

    I'm running Windows XP, SP3 on a laptop Lenovo Thinkpad 61 T.
    My computer works fine, except that if I put in mode 'sleep' and then wake it, it freezes.

  • Laptop freezes when I plug in HDMI to monitor

    When I plug a HDMI cable to my laptop, the screen freezes and forms a black box around the screen. The only thing I can see is my screen background image. Cannot do anything, the system is totally frozen. When I disconnect it everything works fine again. What should I do? I use a HP ENVY DV7-7250us with WIN7 (64 bit) installed thanks! B

    It sounds as if there is a problem with the TV\Monitor. I see that you have not specified which other inputs has the device. This would help. Call you a monitor. The rest of us use LCD screens. It is only 20 inches by your description. I wouldn't use it if it would not accept a video signal with a resolution higher than 1024 x 768.

    I use the laptop Dell inspiron 15r, with Windows 7 ultimate on it. Whenever I connect to the internet via WiFi, after a while, most of the programs I use freezes, and the internet connection is cut off. The same control panel functions do not occur. Also is not possible the normal closing, and I have to force close down at length by pressing the power button. This situation arises that if I use the WiFi. When I use a LAN cable, no problem. This situation is quite irritating, like many times I have no other choice than to use a wi - fi connection and whenever I use it after a few minutes, I have to restart with force, and the cycle repeats. Please suggest a solution. Thank you.

  • Laptop freezes when I connect AC adapter / CC

    Hello. I have a Dell Latitude E7440. The laptop starts with the office end while its connected to the power adapter. It starts very well in a stack on the desktop and works normally. But the problem occurs when I connect to the AC adapter when the laptop is turned on, it freezes, for example when sound on the desk and I connect to the AC adapter, it freezes and does not respond. When I unplug the AC adapter, it takes over and works normally again. When I connect to the AC adapter again it hangs and when I disconnect, it resumes its normal operation. The third time that I connect to the adapter, it does not freeze. What could be the problem? Any help is appreciated please.
