my laptop is 2 years old, i've been having a problem with it whch has gotten worse over the last couple of moneths.
when i watch videos online it justs freezes, it sometimes says graphics driver didn't respond and was restarted..the laptop also heats up could this be the problem?...this problem has gotten worse, i have checked for updates in vaio update but there isn't any driver updates. what can i do to resolve this problem?
Could someone help me please?
High temperature may possibly be the problem. Can you download either PC Wizard or Core Temp and let us know the processor temperatures when viewing videos online or carrying out any processor intensive activity.
Those temperatures are well within acceptable limits. If you constantly had temperatures of between 75 and 80 deg. it may have explained the problem.
There is a graphics driver update available for your model and if you have not already done so I suggest you install this.
thanks rich...are you sure the drive update is for my model? no updates come on in vaio update, and my model is VPCEB1EOE and doesn't mention /T.
just want to make sure it's for my model.
There are two VPCEB1EOE models listed on the support site, a /T and /WI - this just refers to the colour, but you should be able to find your exact model reference in Vaio Control Centre.
That said both have the same update available. I can't explain why Vaio Update is not listing anything unless you already have the update installed.
thanks for your help rich912,
my driver version was 126.96.36.1990, and the version on the link you gave me was 188.8.131.525.
still don't know why the update would not show on vaio update
just an update....it still freezes but at a lower frequency and and for a smaller period of time...think there maybe a problem with the fan as it makes alot more noise when the laptop freezes
