Hi, I've been having this problem for quite some time but it's become quite inconvenient as of late. The short of it is the system crashes on an almost daily basis, where the audio slushes out, CPU usage jumps to 100%, and the only way to fix it is to do a hard reset. I'd look in the task manager and not see any processes taking up all the CPU, however in the resource monitor I see "System Interrupts" is causing the freeze. I attached a screenshot of the resource monitor at the moment the freeze happens. This freeze is also characterized by the wireless connection losing access. It remains connected to the router, but loses the actual internet. I use a Belkin Wireless G 54mbps adapter. I believe my system specs will be around here since I filled them out when I registered.
As I said before, this happens just about every day. I've lost a good amount of information too, since the only way to get out of the freeze is to force a shutdown. I've seen similar problems searching around the internet but none of them have applied to me, nor have any of the fixes worked. So, anyone have any ideas on how to fix it, or at least find out what piece of hardware is causing the system interrupts?
