New SonyVAIO laptop freezes! Pls Help!

  1. I just bought my Sony VAIO A-150 laptop a couple of months ago. It's got XP Home OS, Pent M, 512MB/80GB.
    Not too long ago it started freezing for no reason. No matter what applications I'm running, the mouse and the keyboard freeze together with the function buttons.
    The reason I think it is a hardware issue is that when I slightly "spank" it- it gets back to normal like nothing happend (the Performance tab shows that CPU works fine, no jumping). It can't be overheating - it happens even when it's cold.
    I don't like violence, so it drives me crazy.... :(
    If anybody has any ideas what a heck is going on with my machine - I'd really appreciate your help, guys. Thanks a bunch.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I would suggest that you have a loose component somewhere.

    Because your machine is only 2 months old it will still be under warranty.

    I would strongly advise you to take it back for repair or replacement.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
