I read that thread and found that I have the same problem. However, that appears to be help for a Desktop PC instead of a Notebook PC.
My computer freezes randomly every 20 seconds to 10 minutes. It freezes for about 5 seconds to 10 minutes.
I used to play a game and after a patch, I started having issues where my computer would (while I was playing the game) freeze for about 20 seconds every five minutes (with some variation). After doing a suggested fix by a staff of the game company, my computer started to experience more problems and the freezing times increased as well as the frequency. Right now, I'm experiencing a long time without freezing, but normally now, I can't go 2 minutes without freezing.
I don't play the game anymore, but I have the game on my computer still. I've done a minor reinstall of windows where I kept the old files.
Now I am using an HP Pavilion dv2000 CTO Notebook PC. AMD Turion 64 x2 (1.60 ghz), Nvidia Geforce Go 6150, 1 gig of ram
Any suggestions on how to fix it?
