Guest bryant805 Posted January 17, 2011 Report Share Posted January 17, 2011 Hello Experts.. I recently got a new laptop (HP EliteBook 8540p); 4GB, Intel i7 vPro (quad-core). I'm running 2010.2 (188.8.131.52-server-2mnb #1 SMP) and was quite happy until recently I have experienced issues with the system freezing and/or becoming unresponsive while running minimal workloads and performing normal research via internet browsing. When this occurs, the system locks me out completely and the only work around is to -- gulp --, power cycle the system At first, I had know idea why the system was locking up, but I was able to ssh into the system while it was locked and " top " revealed " X " was taking 100% of the cpu. Whenever this occurs, no matter what process I kill, nothing will change the locked/frozen state of the system. The only constant, or seems to be constant, is that this occurs when a browser is running. It doesn't matter if you are actively browsing or if the browser is just idle running in the background. As far as browsers are concerned, I have had this happen with both Chromium & Firefox. If it helps, I have graphics via nVidia NVS 5100M for notebooks Any ideas???
