We began to have issues with the i7 based laptops at the office and on a lark (actually something we know about) we set Windows to limit cores to 6 rather than the 8 the i7 has. The machines have straightened up and are now very reliable.

I don't think any warranty work could have done as good a job as this simple setting change.

Since https://www.google.com/search?q=SVT113118FSX only finds this discussion I can't comment more.
