My laptop is constantly freezing...
I have a Gateway NV78 with Windows 7, which I've owned since December 26th of last year, and it's been running well until recently.
It seems that whenever it's idle for a long period of time, it will freeze when I try to use it again. It freezes in that I can still use the mouse, but none of the items on the screen will react to it. Sometimes I can Ctrl Alt Del my way out of it, but other times, I'll try to start the task manager, and it just takes me to a black screen, and I have to crash out of it.
I've had Avast installed on it ever since I got it, and it's always up to date. I've also tried the Eusing Free Registry Cleaner, and Spybot, which found only one issue last time I used it. And I did recently update my display driver. Still, my laptop keeps freezing.
Does anyone have a clue as to what could be causing this?
