I am a newbie to bc.com and hope someone can help me with an ongoing freezing issue with my Dell Latitude D630 laptop. I have run various anti-virus, anti-spyware and registry cleanup programs but the issue continues and I am becoming frustrated as I have already reformatted the hard drive and re-installed windows once and I rreally don't want to go through that again. In looking at my event logs I consistently get an Event ID 7000 "The SDDMI2 service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified." error and I am really not sure if this is what is causing my performance issues. In any case my system will freeze or run really slowly every hour or so for about ten minutes and it doesn't matter if I am connected to the internet or not. I think I have said enough to get started. Please help.
