I would like to ask your opinion about some peculiarity that I seldom
experience but as this happened lately to one of laptops twice in a
row in a short span of time therefore it prompted me to ask the
expertise of this group alt.comp.laptop .
The defect that manifest is like this
When this notebook hangs up the mouse becomes unresponsive so I can't
open the task manager to see if what is going on .
It just all applications just freezes and I can't do nothing more but
just to shut up the power button.
When I restarted the notebook once again it just start normally
without even showing something such as that the PC was not shut down
properly and there will be such things a checking the disk etc and
other related automatic routines...
In the past several days I noticed that when I open the task manager
the chip is always running at 100% specially if there are lots of
application open. This did not happen in the past but only recently.
I did not noticed anything strange such as sounds or the notebook
becoming warm etc.
Therefore I can't think of any cause for this peculiarity.
This particular notebook is HP run by WinXP Sp2, have 1 gig of Ram and
still 40 gig of hard drive space, Pentium M 760 Sonoma type.
I can't think this is a battery problem as this was running on AC
power when it happened.
Does anybody here have some experience on this area and what is your
recommended remedy for such?
Re: Notebook just freezes and become unresponsive
Thanks for your reply and indeed that was my iniital concern before I
thought of writing to this group but my internet security is well
updated and I have regularly scanned my system for malware and there
was nothing found so far. Therefore there should be other reasons that
I am not familiar with.
Any other ideas?
