Client Freezes My Computer

Recommended Posts

The Problem

-I run el for 5-10 minutes and my computer completely freezes and the only way I can unfreeze is a hard restart. This is a VERY recent problem.


What I know

-I have installed nothing that could be causing this.

-It freezes twice as fast if I have other apps open.

-El is the ONLY program that this happens with.

-There is nothing in the EL error log, nor should there be, the whole screen is frozen solid when it happens.


What I tried so far

-Updating GFX Drivers

-turning off eye candy/using poor man

-running el in compatibility mode for vista and xp

-running el in admin mode

-System Restore

-Complete deletion and reinstilation of EL

I beseech you to help me figure out what the hell is going on!

Yep, happened to me as well (overheating video card => apparent freeze).


Also, "-I have installed nothing that could be causing this." means for me:

"I have installed things, but I assume they shouldn't be causing this".

Not the first time something like that would bite a user, and it's not a help in finding the cause of the problems.

So please, state what you installed (or at least that you installed things), or that you didn't install anything...

(and installing anything includes updates...)
