I am also having a similar problem to this. Computer freezes up and keyboard lights go off along with mouse, started happening a little less then a month ago, its driving me nuts. Mine doesn't happen to often, it is completely random it can go 2 3 days maybe more with out freezing, or it can happen back to back. I cant seem to reproduce the problem, i just got finished playing a flash game, nothing happened. When it freezes im not doing anything intensive i am just simply switching from 1 tab to the next, and that's when it usually freezes, at first i thought it was IE only, but then it started happening on firefox. When i game nothing happens everything stays stable i dont lock up, just when im browsing. Everything is up to date as far as drivers go, all my main items i cpu bios gfx card, newest adobe flash player.

At last, I found it happened after undergoing the "registry cleaner" of the "CCleaner".

If you did the same thing, this might be your consideration.
Hmm i installed CCleaner on 12/3/09 Seems about the time this stuff started happening, cant be to sure though.

I have not CCleaner at all. but I suggest it is either from flash player or graphic card. I saw lot of people have nvidia. I also have nvidia with last update and flash with the last update, last night I enabled flash plugin again, and I got another crash again. when I rebooted, I saw only a black screen!!

I just installed the newest flash player today, and for nvidia drivers i have the newest BETA drivers.

Allright story of my life:
Upgraded from Vista to Windows 7...happy
Browsed on IE for two day...still happy
IE froze up whenever anything with flash was taking place on the screen..not happy
Updated everything for flash and drivers, no luck, started to use firefox and it worked...happy
Firefox starting to do the same thing...not happy
Some of you say you went back to Vista. Now I would be very interested how one can get back to Vista. I mean Window 7 is allright but this is pesty. I got this computer with Vista installed, how would i downgrade back to Vista from Windows 7? I would like to know as soon as possible because this is just lame.

You will probably have to do a clean reformat with a windows vista cd. I think something has been going on with the new adobe flash and Mozilla or something.

A clean reformat? Will this bring me back to Vista with none of the things my computer had on it when I bought it?(EX. Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader)

Are you using the Flash Player 10.1 beta 2 plugin?

Adobe Labs - Adobe Flash Player 10.1

A clean format will wipe EVERYTHING.

I have seen a lot of proposed solutions regarding Windows7 freezing when accessing the internet, or internet associated software - indeed I had the same problem. I researched many posts and actioned many of the things suggested. However, there is one solution which has not been documented which I believe should be considered - go to Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings > MR on Adapter > Properties > Configure > Power Management. Ensure that 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' is not switched on. You will find it is switched on by default. YOu should also switch off Internet Protocl Version 6,
You should also then play with the power saving options and see if there is any difference between High power and balanced power - if balanced power works with no further freezes, leave it at that else use High power.

I believe this is the solution to majority of freezes....and should be tried first before investigating further
