Hey guys, a few months ago I brought a brand new Asus G73 after being a Mac user for about 3 years. I'm very happy with it, however, after leaving the computer on standby accidentally for 2 weeks whilst away on holiday, my computer now frequently and randomly crashes.
Everything freezes, if there's any sound playing it will loop the last few milliseconds. I can't even move my mouse. Earlier in the same day I had been downloading a game off Steam, my internet was pretty slow and I put it down to windows updater, so, I closed it via taskmanager.
I put my crashes down to this and did a system restore to earlier that day. Every thing seemed to be working fine for a day or so. Then, suddenly they start happening again, I googled "Windows 7 randomly freezing" and found a blog that linked to a hotfix from Microsoft only 3 weeks old, I downloaded this and it didn't help. Unfortunately, after downloading the hotfix, it appears as if I've lost the System Restores before that date, so I can't restore to before I left the system on for 2 weeks. I run SystemCare Pro daily to help with possible registry problems and I have Norton 360 suite which I am running in the background now scanning for viruses as I type.
Has anyone got any help/advice for me?
