Hello!

I have a 4 month old Asus G60Jx and, lately, it started freezing for no apparent reason. It freezes the most when I'm running a few applications together such as google chrome (with lots of tabs)+ powerpoint+winamp+adobe reader. However, it should not be the case of exhausting the memory (this laptop has 8Gb RAM).

Could you please help me out? I need my laptop to work...

My specs are:
Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Nvidia Geforce GTS 360M
i7 Q720 1.6GHz
8Gb Ram

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like possible overheating. Is it being used on a flat hard surface?

Are any of the vents blocked? The vents can be located on the side(s), front, back, bottom of the machine. Can you feel air exiting the vents, ensuring that the cooling fan(s) are running?
