Question about MSI M510C Notebook
Hi! I got this problem more than a month already. My HP laptop DV2855EE was purhased last October 30 and it's working fine then. When I went to Singapore WIFI connection is everywhere so I browse internet thru WIFI all the time. After a month I came back to KSA and started also browsing the net thru WIFI. Few days later I changed connection because I'm always downloading so it's faster when connected thru cable. So after an hour my laptop got stucked up and I have to shut it down by pressing the power button ad then restart it again. Since then it always got stucked up sometimes 7 to 8 times a day i'm just pressing the power button to shutdown and restart it again. Then I switch back to connecting to WIFI and to my surprise my laptop works fine again it did not stucked up even once. But after few days I'm thinking to use the network cable again because I really need faster downloading so I purchased another cable becasue I'm thinking maybe the cable I'm using is defective but the result is the same it still got stucked up. I already asked our IT in my company but they can not give any solution to my problem. So please help me on this immediately.
I have had problems myself with wifi and vista causing my laptop to restart I think it's due to a recent update, try using no security on your wifi connection and see if you get the same problem. On my own laptop I had to remove the wap key and use mac address filtering instead due to this problem. Please let me know the results.

Hey Trahan here: I thought you were up and cruisin the internet by now..ok here we go. What's happening is a running program is locking up causing you to have to reboot. So let's see if we can identify that program. Next time you lock up do this and send me the information: I don't know what operating system you using but this is instructions for Windows XP. If you using something else let me know and I'll give you different path:
Click on start>Control Panel>Administative Tools>Event Viewer>Application.
There is a list of all the programs that are running on your computer. If one of them is locking up, which causes you to have to reboot, it will be the last program that shows up, after you shut down and start back up again. It should be marked with a red x or something that says "stopped" or something to that affect. If we can find that program then we know what is causing it. In your problem did you say you using lan line now or still wireless? I don't need to know now, just let me know when you send me the program name. Good luck..

Thats what i have been tryin to figure out. Is your WIFI set to connect automatically? Even though this really should not matter the best idea i can get is that when the computer tries to connect to the wifi it runs the computer out of memory or something along those lines. I know this is probably one of those simple things i am way overthinking. I wonder (another doubtfull) but i wonder if you try to lower your security settings and see if that might help. I am going to try to get some of the other experts here to chime in on this one. Just hold on and i will try to get u squared away.
