Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N250E/B Notebook ?

I have had two computer shops look at my vaoi and test everything form hard drive to software to how hot it runs etc. NOTHING. The computer works for a day and then freezes where you have to press the power button to turn it off. Then the freezing intervals just increase. Happens randomly during any program use. I have added ram, wiped out all programs and started from scratch. Great computer for two years, and now this relentless problem for over a month. I have spent 400.00 in trying to

I had the same problem, and it came back twice. Last resort was to completely format hard drive and reload windows and has been running fine for 3 months now.
Well then, run the computer using a bootable cd and boot in DOS mode then monitor it again if it freeze again. Do some stress test by leaving it on until it will freeze.

Then check the RAM using memtest software. Just google it. Have the laptop use only one stick if it can for fault isolation.

Some freezes is due to a failing harddrive. Zero fill can help, if you're installing the OS from scratch.

Some steps also is to defragment the hard drive after OS installation and run some registry fixer to tie the loose end on your registry. Then stress test and have some restore point every after you installs some programs, drivers and updates. Then stress test again.

Just giving some inputs.
