Hey All, My laptop has started to throw some odd symptoms at me recently, on boot up it will, if I try and launch any program, just freeze up. I can get feedback from the mouse, but it does not recover. If I let it boot up I can get some use out of it - I tried running HDTune, the quick test goes fine, but if I leave quick test unchecked then it gets to a certain point about 12GB into my disk and then freezes up - it's done this twice. Spotify was running in the background and that stopped playing as well. If I leave it for a while after it crashes it reboots, after the screen goes black for a while. Running CHKDSK didn't seem to fix anything - which leads me to think it's a hardware issue? Any Advice? Sam PS: this may have been caused by some idiot sigh causing it to lose power whilst shutting down... whoops!
