Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-SZ460N/C Notebook ?

Vaio VGN-FZ340e freezes without reason!

\015 Hi,I have a stock Sony Vaio VGN-FZ340E, and its freezing from nothing.Sometimes I'm doing a lot of stuff on it, using WMP, chrome, corel Draw, and something else on, and everything goes ok, I close everything, the computer keeps running without any other program running toghether, than, it freezes! There is not a reason for it! Sometimes, I leave it turned on during the night to download something, update or do the virus scan, when I wake up next day, I see that it had frozen at 2am. I've already formated it using the vaio recovery disc, and nothing changes, it keeps freezing anytime, with so many different reasons for it.I wish someone could help me with it!\015

Answers :

If you have already formatted the HDD with recovery disks then it can be a HW problem. Most likely a motherboard problem. Otherwise there is no reason for the laptop to freeze.
Possibly you have a programme running in the background that is causing the freezes, could be a screensaver. i think at sometime microsoft will issue an update that will fix this problem.
