Whenever it happens, I feel the back of the laptop, to see if the back is really warm, and it isn't, so I don't think this is a heating issue.
I have to hard reboot the laptop every time this happens, a couple times a day. Just a few days ago my hard drive got corrupted (most likely from being hard rebooted too many times) and I lost all my data, but I reformatted and retransfered files from my desktop to get it up and running again.
I know this can't be good for the laptop, but I can't find a way to prevent this from happening. Since it happens sometimes while the computer idles as well, I can't think its the RAM either.
Anyone have some insight as to what is going on here?
Edit: Forgot to mention if it helps at all, the laptop is an ASUS N70Sv
I saw someone in the ASUS forums post about their computer freezing, and assumed they had the same issue. The only response they got was to try updating the BIOS. I have BIOS version 205 on my laptop, and the 206 update had some fix regarding WLAN, but that's all it said. From what I've read, since I've never tried it- don't know how, upgrading BIOS can be dangerous and you really shouldn't try it unless you know it will fix something.
