OK, i'm new here so, hi. Anyway my Sony lap top w/ p-4 will freeze up for about 3 seconds then run right for about 4 sec & go back & forth doing that. It only starts doing that after its been on awhile. Any ideas???????

Hi & welcome. :D

It seems like it may be over heating. How many fans ya got in there?

Im thinking its some program or something....I've had the pc for over a year & the fan is working........I run Adaware alot so Im kinda at a loss. I have a feeling I messed up a regestry file or something. OK, heres what I did......i ran ccleaner & let it do its thing. I may have to trash my hard drive & start over....

Does it freeze ONLY when your in your OS??
What OS do you have?

It sounds like the Laptop is using a Desktop CPU, and it's running hot. You could try a Laptop cooler.
