For the last few days, if I left my computer idle or if it went to screensaver, when it came back it would take up to 10 minutes to start responding again. I would have everything give me the famous (NOT RESPONDING) title. Even worse, it would occasionally go blue screen before returning, but still struggling to keep up. Yesterday it started happening when I was randomly browsing on Firefox, trying to watch a short movie. And now, today, it happened from start up. I'm running a full virus scan in the background, but I don't think that will come up with anything.
Have you tried Googling what's going on Scott? I've never had that issue, but the blue screen worries me. Is the computer still under warranty? Maybe have Geek Squad take a look at it? Sorry I can't offer more help, but having never encountered that issue, I have no idea what the first step to take should be. Glary Utilities is very good at fixing issues and cleaning. It's free, so maybe give that a shot. Hope it's nothing serious man.
I tried, I didn't understand much of what I read being mostly computer illiterate. I have software coverage from Geek Squad still. I might have to bring it in during the week. See if they can figure out why this keeps happening.
Yeah, and I'm not covered for that. I'm definitely running hot. After I posted this, during the radio show for the PPV tonight my computer shut down due to overheating. Haven't had that problem for a while.
Thanks. It's been okay for the most part this evening, only because I've not been letting it go idle. But when I walk away it gets all wonky. I made my screen saver go on at 20 minutes instead of 5 and that still doesn't help. Just not using it causes this.
Holy crap this is gonna take some getting used to, this new keyboard and touchpad. Oof. I'll figure something out. I should have a 500 gig xHDD I can clean out on here and use to clean out the old machine if it's still working.
Yeah, sorry for the dumb response, have a pretty good cold going and was on some meds the other night. I was thinking all your book marks and stuff, not actual files being transferred from the old computer to the new one.
As long as it'll turn on, you should be able to move everything via USB I would think. And congrats on the new computer, it's fun learning on something you've never used before!
