I recently bought a Medion notebook/laptop, specifically the Akoya P6512. It worked really well for around 3 months, and then began to randomly freeze, and take a good minute to unfreeze, at which point it would work for 10 seconds, then freeze again. The only way to stop it was to restart the laptop. It was completely random when it would freeze, it could be okay for an hour after starting, or begin freezing right from boot.
So, I decided that the best course of action would be to wipe the hard-drive and completely reinstall Windows 7. I did so, and the freezes continued to happen. Thinking there were possibly still some corrupt sectors (and the quick format done during install didn't catch them) I opened a command prompt using the install disc and did a CLEAN ALL, followed by creating a new partition and installing on that partition. And it STILL has the problem. Do you guys have any ideas? Any recommendations on what I can do to find out what's causing it? The laptop is still under warranty, but I'd rather fix it myself than send it off.
Thanks in advance!
