So today my girlfriend hands me a tiny USB thumb drive wanting me to upload some music on it. So I boot my machine, insert the drive, and then cruise facebook while the drivers for the device install. Shortly thereafter, my computer freezes. No mouse control, no keyboard commands, everything is just frozen. Curious I do a hard reboot and instead log-in on a seperate account. For awhile, it seems to work but then it too freezes. My guess is that the drivers or the device somehow messed things up, but I could be mistaken. Before this morning's incident, all I did with it last night was play sims 3 while having it connected to our flat screen TV. It was sitting on the floor ( carpet ) but made no signs of overheating or exhaustion. This is the first time anything like this has happened too. Any help would be greatly appreciated -- I really miss my sims!
