I have a completely random crashing issue, total lockup. Only way to break it is hold the power button to force a reset.

Tried wireless and wired connections.

Think it is a pc issue on my end? Some resource hogging virus that locks it down or something? Time for a fresh system install on this pc anyway.

Drunken advice:

Because you say it locks random, If its time anyway and you have your shit easily backed up then do it. If you still have a prob must be hardware.

What is your pc and hold old? also, what os?

Was wasted last night when I wrote that after a particularly annoying lockup, sorry it was kind of vague. I have a Dell Inspiron 9100 lappy running XP Pro SP3.

A reinstall isn't THAT easy but it probably should be done.

These things get pretty hot, make sure it isn't reaching whatever temperature it's set to failsafe at (also drunken advice)

There are 2 fans on the bottom, I cleaned both fans and heat sinks out. Will see if that helps, thanks guys.

Did it again last night, are there any other internal parts that should be cleaned in order to aid cooling?

Freeze might be a buggy driver. Did you change anything before it started happening?
