Need help; why does my Windows 7 system freeze after it sits inactive for a while?
I have a problem that is bothering me to no end. I guess not seeing it in front of you or being able to connect with my PC I would think it might be a challenge. But at this point maybe you can give me a few suggestions. I am running a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro. I have 3GB of RAM and I have 2 hard drives on my system. Every once in a while if I let my PC sit inactive and come back to do something, with it at the desktop or with a browser open, I will have to click my mouse three or four times and then my system comes to a complete halt and freezes--forcing me to turn the power off and restart my system. It goes through the process of loading Windows and asks me if or how I want to start my system, I always choose normally and not in safe mode. My question or problem is when and why my PC will freeze? What can I do, where can I look? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have checked my device manager and everything is OK and no yellow warning marks. Maybe throw it out to the members/readers and maybe I'll get something or maybe you'll have an idea or two. I certainly would appreciate any help I can get.
