I have a weird problem going on with my laptop. Actually, it's been going on for about three months now, and I really need it fixed.
I am running Windows XP using a Gateway MX6920. For the past three months, it has been doing this thing where everything freezes for about 30 seconds, and then starts working again for about two minutes, then it freezes for another 30 seconds or so, then works again for about 2 minutes. It will repeat this process until I restart the computer. Even then, upon shutdown when restarting it, it will freeze up, so I have to hold the on/off button to sut it down manually. And sometimes restarting it once does not work.
Like I said, it has been going on for just over three months now. I have tried Disk Defragment, Disk cleanup, MBAM, System Restore, but to no avail. It gets annoying when I am doing a report or something for school, and I have to restart it because it keeps freezing.
Any ideas of what's going on? Thanks for any help.
