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.
Go into the devise manager and see what needs updating. Also try plugging the mouse into another USb port. You should do a maggot ware scan. Something may be hogging your memory.

May be heat related. 5 minutes to a half hour or so would lead me towards the heat sink for the processor. May be an under power problem. What's your power supply ?
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.
