* Edit* Just read the subject line and realized it doesn't make sense with regard to "Never Shuts Down" meant to say it glitches but does not crash to where It shuts itself off or I need to restart it. Never shuts down....yeah, it's powered with a thorium source and it's gonna run forever.....they'll marvel at it in 3,000 years in the Smithsonian saying, "And to think it used to glitch!" *End Edit*
Well I have been trying a bunch of stuff to eliminate a problem on my laptop, I could go on and on about all the crap I've tried, but none of it has helped.
Maybe I'm some sort of idiot savant, but when it comes to doing searches, I can't seem to find a tool that allows me to monitor the computer and report back what is running when the computer freezes.
I see the CPU % Surge up in task manager and other monitors, but because it is froze up, I can't see which process/program is hogging everything up.
The computer will run great for 5 to 20 minutes then it just sort of freezes up, the mouse will etch about a bit if moved, but not predictably, then after 1 to 3 minutes, it's back to normal, till it isn't again.
I think if I can see what process/program correlates to the freeze I can go from there.
I've gotten Advanced SystemCare and let it do its thing, and have put Malwarebytes (only one trojan file thing found) through its paces, I have checked problem reports and found nuttin. ASC found a ton of things that got cleaned up, but glitch is still occuring. ASC assures me my system is A-OK though. (losing faith in that program quickly)
Oh, and get this, the little "EKG" graph in task monitor showing CPU % flies along, but when the glitch happens, it freezes up too making it look like the glitch only lasted 10 seconds, not 1 - 3 minutes.
RuntimeBroker seemed sketchy to me because it had a bunch of I/O Reads & Writes, but everything I've tried to eliminate its issues have not stopped the freezes, and the RTB I/O Readin & Written spikes don't correlate to the glitches....sooooo
I just went on & on didn't I .
Question >>> Is there a program or utility thing I can run in the background on the computer to see what is running when the glitch's/freezes/seizures occur so we can narrow down the search for a solution to maybe 3 or 4 things instead of 7 or 8 million bazillion ?
Thanks for reading this!!!! I hope you can help, looking forward to a reply. Pax, Charlie.
