Yoga Chromebook c640 4k Occasional Freezing

Q: Yoga Chromebook c640 4k Occasional Freezing

I recently got the 4k version of the yoga chromebook: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/yoga/yoga-c-series/Yoga-Chromebook/p/88YGCC61096 Part number: 81JX0008UX I've noticed that occasionaly with this laptop my pointer will lag insanely and not respond to small inputs for multiple minutes at a time. At the time it occurs there isn't high CPU load or memory load. It occurs with the touchpad and the mousepad. It occurs when I do and do not have any peripherals attached. Closing the lid, letting the laptop sleep, then waking it back up has helped once so far. I usually just hard reboot as a workaround. I've seen review articles mention freezing as well, which were chalked up to running linux apps, which I did not run when this started, but are running now: https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/02/22/lenovo-yoga-chromebook-c630-4k-review/ I'm running Version 73.0.3683.88 (Official Build) (64-bit), and this has occurred across multiple verison of Chrome OS. It first occured the first time I started using the laptop and signed into my account. I restored from a USB flash drive which appeared to resolve the issues for multiple days whereupon it started happening again. Has anyone else seen this? What's the support option here since I've already wiped the chromebook? Must it be a hardware problem?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone! Just got the new Yoga C640 laptop with i7 10510U and I have to say I am pretty dissapointed!  The fan on this thing is very noisy with high pitch turbine like sound, but the worst part is the behaviour of it. It runs most of the time and sometimes goes into annoy-the-hell-outta-everyone mode when it starts going on and off every other second for like a minute or two. Additionally, CPU easily reaches 90 C before it throttles when browsing and doing other light activities. Since I am new to Yoga line, wanted to ask the community if this is normal behaviour, particularly fan turning on and off every other second? Initially I though i7 is to blame for this, but the new intel line runs very low on power and has the same TDP as i5, so that should not be the cause.  If anyone else recently got this laptop, can you confirm if your fan also makes high pitch noise when running? Thinking returnign this laptop but wanted to hear your thoughts first. Thanks!

Hi everyone, i own this laptot since about 3 weeks. I have no problems in using windows 10 (except for a strange high RAM usage also in idle like 50% or so). I wanted to install linux for developing, and i tryied to boot manjaro linux. Here comes first problems, the same usb-key was working fine (talking about linux live distro) on a lenovo C930 and another 2-in-1 laptop with 8th gen intel core processors. I made to boot with just a single very old usb key. When in the live distro i had several video glitches, non working mouse, keyboard and obviously touchscreen. I could only use the terminal, wich was working fine. I then tryied booting linux mint, where the system worked much better except for touchscreen still, and most importantly network-card. Now i'm using a VM, but i really want to install linux in dual boot. I've already disable both fast boot and secure boot in my bios and this made some pen-drives to be recognized when booting, but on the usage i have several problems. I haven't tryied yet to completly install a linux distro, both because in my first choice (manjaro KDE) i simply couldn't proceed through the installation, and in mint because of non-working netcard. I don't think is fault of the pc, because another C730 i see work really well with linux.

Hey, I was hoping I could get some help from multiple sources. I had left a message with the people who make Avatar computers, but was hoping for a quicker response from here considering my computer is also Windows 8 with NVIDIA graphics.
I've recently been having random freeze problems. This started about a month, month and a half ago. It does not occur every day, but every so often I will either be in-game (Team Fortress 2 or Guild Wars 2) or exiting a game and my desktop will completely freeze. I cannot access my Task Manager or Alt-F4 out. It comes down to having to having to press the power button and wait a few seconds for it to restart normally.
This also happened while I had Steam Friends List open along with Skype. I walked away for a few minutes and as soon as I got back everything would be unresponsive and freeze.
It happened again today when exiting Mass Effect. Everything froze up and upon trying to restart the computer would not cooperate for an hour and a half/two hours. My brother fidgeted with it a little to try and run the System Recovery disk for Avatar/Windows 8 and the computer kept complaining it was not the right disk. I really don't understand why my computer has been doing this unless it's a problem with the graphics card maybe, or the manufacturer.
I got this computer back in June of this year and only recently has it been doing this.
I was just hoping I could get a little more advise/help here while I wait for a phone call back from Avatar.

Every couple minutes my entire PC will freeze. Nothing major happens when it does, either.

I will be either gaming, programming Java, or browsing the internet when for periods of about 10 seconds or less the mouse will jerk around (as if updating every half second), audio will skip at the same rate, and video will freeze as well. After the 10 seconds or so, everything is back to normal.

Opening Task Manager and allowing it to gather data has showed that nothing spikes during these freezes.

I have updated Graphics Drivers through Steam (GeForce GTX 640) and the problem started most likely around two weeks ago. It hasn't really been a problem, and I assumed since I was running fairly intense games that it was just a hitch I would have to deal with. Now it invades even the most simple tasks.

I have read that this may be a problem with Windows Updater, but the solution I am always directed to is to run the troubleshooter. That rarely works, and didn't in this case.

EDIT
When I get the chance, I will record some random gameplay with Fraps and see if it can pick it up so I can give a video example.

A:[SOLVED] Occasional Freezing

A computer that freezes is caused by overheating or a failing or under powered Power Supply Unit.
Shut down the computer and take off the side and clean out all dust and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Take a look at the label of the PSU and report the Make, Model# and Wattage. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning.
Download Speccy and check your temperatures when doing intensive games.

When opening pages with internet videos, occasionally my entire screen will freeze with a couple of odd exceptions: the mouse still moves but doesn't highlight anything and the computer appears to behave as normal, i.e the movements and clicks of the mouse can manipulate the (now playing, sound only obviously) video (pausing, skipping etc.).

Every time this happens, forcing shutdown and rebooting causes the computer to then behave normally, but obviously this is not ideal. The freezing happens fairly infrequently, once every couple of days or so, sometimes more often, and i don't have to actually be viewing the page when it happens, for example youtube changing to the next video in a music playlist open in a background tab can trigger it. Anyone have any idea what might be going on?

Thanks in advance people

I'm really not sure where to start so I thought I would come here for some guidance and assistance. It's happening at different times, sometimes when gaming, sometimes watching Netflix, sometimes just web browsing.

A:Frequent freezing and occasional BSOD

Hello Dr Horrible,
Most of these seem to be caused by the USB driver, that is where i would start.
Go to Device Manager and un-install all you USB drivers, reboot and new drivers will be installed.

You also need to address the other problems too. go to the MB makers site and see if there are updated drivers for them.

After so many BSOD's the system files can become corrupt.
Open a command prompt as administrator and type sfc/scannow press enter and let it scan, if errors are found you will need to scan again until clean.

To eliminate the memory remove all but one stick of ram and test, test in all slots used, then test the other stick/sticks of ram in all slots used.

Also, can you upload your last couple of dump files, there is nothing like the originals for more information.
Go to C > Windows > Minidump > zip up the files and upload them with your next post. You may have to save them to your desktop first.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hey guys, I've had this computer for a couple of years and it's always had a problem with freezing and BSOD.

Sometimes I can go a few hours without any problems, but sometimes it'll freeze up after only a few minutes. I've got no idea what causes this.

It has frozen once and BSODed once while I've been writing this. When it BSODed, it got to 80% of whatever it was doing and then froze (as you can see in the pic I'll upload).

I've also downloaded the Windows Seven Forums Diagnostics Tool and will upload the results of that, too.

Please let me know what I can do to work out this issue, thanks!

Hello,
I have had a number of issues with my PC freezing, randomly resetting, and occasionally BSODing. The most common symptom is a random freezing that locks the computer (nothing but a hard reset will cause it to reboot) and causes whatever sound that was coming through my speakers to get stuck in a looped buzzing noise. This can happen several times in an hour, then not happen for days straight.
Occasionally, I will get a BSOD but there has been no consistent pattern to the error messages.
I also frequently get this message on a reboot after an error message: "DQS Training failed on previous boot, please press F1 to revert to slower DRAM speed" (I ran a memtest and let it cycle 6 or 7 times with no errors reported)

Any help in diagnosing this issue would be awesome!

A:Freezing and occasional blue screen in games

Your error is 0x3B and these are often caused by faulty video drivers. Try the following:

1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

The freezing will happen at any time - browsing, watching a video using VLC, copying files etc. I have a report from Blue Screen View for the last 2 BSOD but most of the freezing issues did not result in a BSOD so I just re-booted to continue with my work (sometimes it required 2-3 boots to get the system up and running again as it froze again on login page.

Hello forum,

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro P300-1FP laptop, about 4 years old.

Running Windows 7 (32 bit version).

An occasional but annoying problem: when playing video, from time to time the whole system freezes. Sound continues to come from the speakers but it's usually either a slowed down & distorted version of what I should be hearing, or a loud, repetitive buzzing/screeching noise.

System never recovers - just freezes totally, unresponsive, display frozen, mouse pointer won't move, etc. Have to reboot each time.

Does anyone know what might be causing this & how I might fix it?

Thanks,
Alan.

A:Satellite Pro P300-1FP - Occasional Freezing When Playing Video

As far as I know SP P300 runs well with Win7 32bit. My brother has the same machine and use it with Win7 too. We have often checked performance with different games or playing different videos, mostly avi or mpeg files. YouTube videos run also very good and smoothly so I really don?t understand why do you have this freezing problem.

Have you installed display driver from Toshiba download page?
Is HDD extremely busy before this happen?

Does the same happen when you play games?

Hi, hope somebody can help me here.
My computer regularly freezes, that is to say everything stops and the only course of action is to use the restart button. It has always done this, but to start with it was very occasional, once or twice a month, now it happens at least once a day. Also I am now getting an occasional Blue Screen Of Death to go with it. The stop code I am getting when this happens is...

0X0000009C (0X00000000, 0XB8330050, 0XB2000040, 0X00000800)

The problem stepped up a gear a few months ago after having a new motherboard fitted.

I'm not sure of the relevance of this but I'll put it in just in case. My device manager is showing an unknown device with a yellow question mark. I have no idea what this device is or if the problems I'm having have anything to do with it or not.

A:Regular Freezing and occasional BSOD with stop code.

Can we get the spec's of your computer, Make, model, motherboard, RAM etc.

Since the error has happened more frequently since the Motherboard swap, check all connections to the motherboard, reseat CPU, and RAM, Graphics Card.

If the error still happens, download memtest86+, burn to a CD and test your RAM one stick at a time.

Hello.......trying to help my wife resolve an issue with her laptop. ASUS laptop, Windows 7 Home, few years old.

It has this issue where it freezes every once in a while, and when it does, it's always after she's walked away, and it's gone to sleep. It doesn't freeze every time, after it's been asleep, but when it does, it's definitely after it's been asleep.

That said, she said it's kind of done this since it was new, but she kind of blew it off as some weird "windows thing", but it's getting more annoying to her.

Usually she'll do a hard shutdown, as she doesn't have any other choice, and when she restarts it, it will behave.

Once in a while, but not every time, she will get a blue screen, and it happened last night....and it says "windows has been shut down to prevent further damage to your computer".....or something like that. Can't remember if it said an error was detected, or what else it said. Wish I had taken a picture, but hopefully I've furnished enough info to get some help/advice.

Thanks in advance!

I own a Yoga 710, and have been very satisfied with it.However, recently the light that indicates the webcam is being used has been flashing on and off occasionally. Sometimes it flashes every few seconds, sometimes it is only every few minutes. The light never stays on for more than a split second. I am worried this means some malware is accessing my camera for unknown reasons.I disabled the setting that allows apps to have access to the camera, yet the light continues to flash. In the meantime, I have taped over it for privacy reasons, but I would like to solve the problem.I don't know if this is related, but I also noticed around the same time that my screen would sometimes become redder (almost like it was turning on dusk-screen settings) and then turn back to normal. Please help! Thank you! jberge

Hi, Has anyone had any success using the N23 Yoga Chromebook and a USB serial adapter.  I have verified that my USB-A port is good but I have tried several different USB to Serial Adapters and none of them are being recognized.  Several hours of research today led me to a suggestion that requires modifing a file in the root filesystem "android.hardware.usb.host.xml" and I would rather not do that.   Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks,Kevin

A few months ago I started having problems with the microphone and video freezing.  Two weeks ago the microphone died while trying to use it with zoom.  doing further analysis the other day shows that it's not working with any product that uses it.  It also doesn't work if I use a bluetooth device with a functioning microphone.   Apparently this is a known issue according to other postings i've seen, but now my warranty is 5 days over it's expiration date. As recommended on the support site, I rebooted, reset to original settings, to no avail.   Is there any workaround I can peform without having to pay an silly amount of money to get this fixed?

Hi all, I bought Yoga 11e Chromebook for a high schooler in my family, and she was happy with it. A couple of weeks ago, in her science class she couldn't access some web resources - I bet they written as "Windows or Mac only" web resources.   Now, I am thinking installing Windows on it, to make her school life easier - Because she is a student she can have a Windows license at no cost from government software centre for students.   The machine is still under warranty and I would like to know: 1. Will Lenove be helpful to provide me all the information?2. Can I do this without warranty void?3. Is it possible to install WIndows on Yoga 11e Chromebook?4. Where can I find the installation procedure?   Thanks!

As long as you can enter development mode I beleive you can install Windows on it (assuming the hardware meets the requirements) http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-install-windows-8-on-your-google-chromebook-pixel.350111/ While it is for the pixel, the instructions seem to be universal for chromebooks.   I'm not sure about warranty voiding though.

Hi.
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium (sp2) on a Sony VAIO laptop.
My laptop was recently infected by a rootkit trojan, which was successfully removed, thanks to some help via your forum(s).
 
While my laptop has been running well since the virus was removed, there have been some notable issues.
My main issue is that when my laptop is in Sleep Mode, and I try to wake it, either by pressing the power button or 'any key', it restarts;
I'm shown the 'windows did not shutdown properly' page on startup, but after clicking 'start windows normally' it boots up fine.
Just before it restarts I see a flicker of a blue screen, which disappears too quickly to read. (I have seen white and red text on this screen).
 
I have had occasional 'crashing/freezing' issues also, where I can still move the mouse/pointer, but there is no response from the keyboard, even ctrl/alt/del.
 
Another thing I have noticed is that my C: Drive seems to keep getting full, even though I am not adding anything to it. (system restore issues perhaps?)
 
Any help with these frustrating issues would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks.
 
Chris.
 
 

A:Laptop keeps restarting when awoken from 'sleep mode' + occasional 'freezing'

Further developments. My laptop will now not fully boot. It gets to the desktop screen, but then freezes when loading the icons in the taskbar. I can move the mouse/pointer, but that is all. I tried a startup repair/system restore and while it went through the motions, the same thing happened on startup.
Your help would be massively appreciated.
 
Will boot in safe mode and run as you would expect in that mode.

Last week, I purchased a refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Yoga Chromebook.  When I received it, it was sealed in the original packaging with a sticker indicating that it had been refurbished at a Lenovo facility.  When I turned it on, I got stuck at the Enterprise Enrollment screen.  It seems that it was registered to the domain of the original owner and would not let anyone login without credentials for that domain.  The trackpad was also non-responsive, but I figured once I logged in, I could toggle the trackpad settings and get it working. There was a link to contact Google for help with this, so I followed those instructions.  Google said that they could not help me, and that I'd need to contact the original owner to have them de-register the device.  Since I had no connection to the original owner, I contacted the seller who apologized and told me that, since the device had a full warranty, Lenovo should be able to fix the issue. So, I contacted Lenovo for help on Sunday.  The Tech Support Agent that I spoke to first tried to tell me to return the device and get something that ran Windows since Chrome OS and Android are inferior(!).  Anyway, once I assured him that I did indeed want a Chromebook and knew all about Chrome OS, he told me that I could send it in for repair, and that all they'd need to do was wipe the system and re-install the OS with a consumer image instead of the enterprise image that was on the m...
