I've just picked up a second hand Dell Latitude D430 which is a fantastic little machine. However, a couple of days after installing a clean copy of Windows 7 x64 on it, I'm experiencing random lock ups requiring me to force a power off. In both instances I was browsing the internet with Opera in turbo mode - I haven't seen a lock up elsewhere, but 2 locks up is hardly conclusive that that could be the culprit. It may also be that a driver hasn't installed correctly but again, it's very early days trying to find out the issue. Also ran a deep hard drive scan which has come back that the drive is fine.
I don't have much experience with Dell (I usually build my systems so know exactly that I need to set it up with), but I'm really just wondering if anybody does have experience that could help me out with the freezing issue or point me in the right direction of exactly what to install on it should I do a reinstall of Windows 7.
Should also mention that in one of the freezes everything stopped (inc the clock, which is usually my sign that it has hung) yet the Windows circular busy pointed was still animated. Very odd.
