I've had my computer for about 2 months now, and after windows boots up, it freezes after 5 minutes to the point where the mouse doesn't move and I have to shut down.
This has been happening for about a week now.
My specs are as follow:
Windows Vista 64bit
6.0GB DDR3 RAM
AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz
NVidia GTX 260
I disabled everything on startup and cleared my prefetch since. Ran some stuff to make sure my registry was alright and checked a couple drivers. But it still happens. Processor never goes above around 5% when I'm just doing random stuff in Firefox. I have no idea what it could be. I'm sorry. What type of information are you looking for?
Yahh, I mean its around 5 minutes, sometimes it close to right away, other times its like 30 minutes. And I could just be using firefox, or looking at my desktop. Right now it hasn't crashed yet and its been about half an hour. I'm sure it will soon though.
i have the same problem, every time my laptop starts up nicely them 5 mins later CRASH, everything stops....can't seem to find an answer anywhere other that WINDOWS VISTA SUCKS!!!! My advice is do what i plan to do and get Widows XP install fresh.
i bought a new computer with 6 gb of ram 750 gb of hard its a preety good computer has windows 7. ive had it since this christmas of 09 im not sure what i did but after i boot it up around 5-7 minutes into the boot it freezes nothing wants to shut down nothing starts up all my icons disappear and it happens every time
