After about 3-4 hours of my lap-top being on and on the Internet I have trouble connecting to the Internet unless I reboot the computer.  Usually when this happens I am in a program that I can’t shut down to re-boot.  Anyone have any idea what may be causing this?  It happens both on wireless and when connected by network cable.

I don’t understand. You mean the program froze and you had to do a force reboot?

I think he means he’s doing something uber-important like rendering videos or something. Smile

Oh, the site that was :(

Hi there Craig, please be more descriptive….

 

Though perhaps it’s a virus? Who knows… try scanning your system with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. Then if you like to be paranoid, then go to Youtube and get a free product key from there.

 

Hope that helps.

Locutus,

You are correct.  I videotape depositions for attorneys and download in real time.  The computer does not freeze.  But this happens anytime regardless weather I am download realtime or just using the computer. There are no virus’s as I do run all the “famous” maleware programs every day, Malewarebiytes, C Cleaner, etc.  So if anyone has any ideas it would be appreciated.

Key info:

After 3-4 hours of continuous usage…

 

…Since it’s a notebook, I’m thinking heating issues. Try using a notebook cooler while you’re using your laptop for long periods of time… See if that fixes it.

Especially three to four hours of video on a laptop that could definitely cause it to overheat. Try a fan or even just elevating the laptop so the bottom can get air circulation.
