So do you have to cycle power to resolve it?

Does it happen after a certain amount of time has passed?

Can you duplicate it consistently by doing something specific, or is it completely random?

The keyboard and mouse are built in the laptop.
To resolve it, I have to wait or restart.
I usually start my laptop up, then after a while it will freeze and then work then freeze.

Would it be worth doing a system restore?

So if you wait long enough, it accepts input again?

Weird.

I dunno man, I'd probably have to dink with it to figure it out.

What do your resources look like? Is your processor gagging on something, maybe a virus scanner or other scheduled task? How much RAM do you have?

I was seeing weird lock-up issues lately, where the system would appear to hang, but the processor was just being monopolized by SVCHost.exe. It turned out to be a problem with Microsoft Update.

So try turning off Microsoft update???

Just taking stabs in the dark.

What about reseting the whole computer?
Would that work?

I don't understand. Isn't that what you're doing now? Do you really want to have to reboot everytime this happens? Or perhaps I'm not hearing you correctly...

Anyway, I can't really help if you don't answer my questions.

I cant turn Microsoft updates off because I cant access the computer.

When I say reset the whole computer, I mean wipe it to start over.

Not if it's a hardware problem. If you have some sort of heat issue, then reinstalling the OS is not going to help at all.

So at this point, the computer is not in a usable state at all?
