Default Laptop

my laptop is freezing sometimes when im surfing the web
Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo 1.8GHZ
2 GB RAM (2x1GB DDR2)
Nvidia 8400M GS
dont mind the gfx card

i dont see why my laptop freezes. i dont run alot of programs and i only had 1-2 firefox windows up and xfire and aim running. i barely got the laptop 3 days ago and now its freezing very often. i dont think its system stability because i already tested it and it worked fine. it is really good for gaming but a simple task such as going through folders makes it freeze

50-55 C not idle
EDIT: maybe the intel speedstop(or whatever that is when u are not using much programs the processor slows. any way to turn that off?)

Maybe it's coming from something you downloaded recently. Do a scan for spyware, or even a virus scan. Delete Temp Internet files and cookies (Disk Cleanup).

I've been fortunate not to experience that with my Dell laptop. It runs perfect. In fact, it runs tons better than my desktop believe it or not. The only disadvantage of my laptop is the core video component. If that was upgraded, it would be a pretty good gaming laptop.

Yea, when you download a lot of games you dont know it but things install on your computer withought you knowing it. Like iruses and crap you dont need.
