Lock Up / Running PC Issue
On my laptop, I run Windows 7. I predominantly use Firefox browser and Outlook email. Also use Open Office.
For some reason, on occasion the PC locks up and it just runs and runs (hourglass never disappears).
Although I hate doing this, I sometimes have to remove the battery and then reboot. In the majority of cases, this works.
Sometimes I am asked to run chkdsk after doing this.
The lock up is not a regular occurance, but it happens often enough. What do you think may be doing this ?
Is there a better way to try to shut down the PC when this happens?
Thanks for your help.
