The laptop computer went completely frozen after 4 to 5 hours of used. The computer would suddenly stop, the mouse pointer won't even change to that 'blue circle thing that go round and round' (hope you understand what I meant here). Also, it will replay the last bit of sound that was played, for example, if I am running a song and the word 'hello' is sung, it will replay 'hel-hel-hel-hel.....'. The light that indicate the computer is running is off too. And the only solution is to turn off the power or a long press on the turn-on bottom.
It appear that no matter what kind of program was running (in the foreground) the same thing happen.
System and hardware:
-Intel Core 2 Duo T7300
-2 GB ram
-NVIDIA Geforce 8400M G
-Seagate 159GB harddisk
Because of this problem, I have already reinstalled window a week ago. However, the problem continued. In the mean time, I have installed the
-various drivers for hardware use, nvidia control panel, sound card driver etc (those programs came in a package with the window reinstall disc)
-Microsoft Security essential
-window live messenger
-Pirifrom Speccy, Defraggler and CCleaner
-and a game: Pro Evolution Soccer 2011
As I have just reinstalled window and my computer doesn't have much in it. Also, I have used that laptop nearly everyday for the past 4 years, playing games that really extendly using the hard wares, would the hardware be 'worn out'?? If so, which part it may be to cause the problem as mentioned?? However, I haven't tried safe mode to check so (waiting 4 to 5 hours is difficult). Please help!!
