Previously, I thought that my Geforce 8400M GS card was the stem of all of these problems, but now I'm not sure.
Basically, when switching from a game/drawing applications to another application - the computer freezes temporarily or freezes altogether.
Things that trigger this :
- Changing actual volume while a game is up. The computer will completely freeze.
- Switching to another program while the game is up. The computer will temporarily freeze.
- Changing in-game volume. The computer will completely freeze.
This problem has eluded countless technical support and computer workshops so far. Other than these problems, the computer seems perfectly fine. It doesn't even overheat. I have sent this computer over twelve times.
Programs / Examples (may help):
2D Sidescrolling game La Tale = permanent freeze on volume adjustment and videos, normal freeze on switching to another application
3D Game Luna Online = Freeze on clicking to another window, but can play videos / volume.
MSN Drawing Tab = Freeze on clicking the drawing tab and freeze again when going to draw. Freezes when switching back to text.
3D Game Flyff (on max settings) = No freezing at all when switching, ability to play videos.
