  1. Hi, well my computer (idk why) just freezes for no apparent reason
    Its been happening for the past week.

    Here are some instances when it happened:
    - watching a movie or listening to music, the sound suddenly just goes (dudududududududu) over and over again
    -on mozilla: I am browsing the web and then suddenly the page doesn't load and the computer freezes (installed opera and the same thing happened)
    -when I'm afk and there are programs opened like Microsoft open, the computer still freezes


    these are what I can remember... Anyway I dont think it's a problem with the driver space because of 52 GB I have about 30 GB free so... idk

    Gateway Laptop Freezing Issues

    Hi. I thought I'd make a post here. I'm new to computers-in an IT program right now but still new. My laptop is also freezing which sucks b/c the boogah is only like a year old. I use 1TB has my backup and pretty much keep stuff on there so I don't think it's bogged down w/ to much crap. I have anti virus software. I have a cooling pad I keep it on and I don't leave it on all the time-I do shut it off and do update runs. I have NO clue why it's starting to do this. It was just doing it when I used Facebook but today Itunes wacked it out too. I use Windows Vista on this-I haven't changed what it came with stock. Going to try to do some google.coming for some extra help. Thanks to anyone who can help me also. Ciao.
