I have an Asus G74S laptop. It's been upgraded to 32GB RAM and the HDDs upgraded to 1 TB x2. It's running Windows 7 Ultimate. I bought it from a really techy dude, and then moved out of the country. There may be other upgrades I'm not aware of.
The laptop is having an issue where it will randomly close programs. Every time I try to load Serato, for example, it crashes to Desktop before the program is ever usable.
I have an HP laptop that is half as powerful, using the same OS, and has no problems with any of the same programs. As a DJ, I really want this to work, but it also does this to other programs. Really, it's like whatever program is pushing the computer too hard will just disappear like it was shut down in the task manager.
I put this in here because I know that the programs work well together with the OS and the hardware in general. I suspect that maybe there is some issue with the RAM from when it was upgraded.
Is it possible that upgrading the OS might solve this problem? I was thinking about switching to Windows 10 anyway.
