Ever since taking my laptop back to bestbuy for Mobo replacement (I plugged headphones into the USB jack on accident, rendering 3/4 jacks useless), she's been freezing randomly.
I've narrowed it down i hope. After saving an Audacity *.aup file, and trying to reopen it, she freezes to where the mouse no longer moves and a CAD is impossible. Found out that Windows Audio Service (or one of it's dependancies) were causing it. Upon stopping WAS, the file was openable, but not playable, for the audio device was shut off.
The freeze is only triggered by opening that audacity file. Elsewhere, it's random, sometimes with audio playing, sometimes not. Audacity also sometimes crashes while recording.
Tried to repair my drivers, but windows says they're all the freshest bunch of audio drivers there are for my particular device.
Also, my Wireless deactivated itself in this whole process. I think it's just about time for either taking it back to BB or doing the windows cure-all: re-installing the OS. Before I do, any suggestions?
Also, my laptop model: ASUS G60JX
