    Hi everyone! I'm new here, and I'm also relatively new to computer nitty-gritties. However I've been facing this problem for quite some time and it's gotten worse recently so I've decided to seek help here!

    For a few months, my Asus U36JC laptop has been freezing quite often (70% of the time?) when opening or using Adobe products such as Photoshop and Reader. By 'freeze', I mean a totally unresponsive screen, where the cursor does not move and Ctrl-Alt-Del does not work. When this happens, I have to hold down the power key to turn off the computer. This is unhealthy, isn't it? /:

    Also, sometimes after I restart my computer after such instances, my laptop freezes again when I reach my desktop after startup, even when I have not turned started any programmes manually.

    I am not sure if this is related to my situation, but I've noticed that when my laptop freezes, the area towards the left of my touchpad makes a loud whirring noise and gets really hot.

    As of now, the situation hasn't been replicated in any of the safe modes. I've done some reading up and to my understanding, one of my drivers the culprit? If so, I have no inkling of how to go about ascertaining which it is! ):

    From time to time I also get Blue Screens of Death, saying that the system shut down due to a Driver Power State Failure. My dumps are in the attachment 'W7F_19-04-2013.zip'.

    What other information should I provide? I've no idea how to go about getting the required specifications of my system, but I took a screenshot of something I got off the programme 'EVEREST'; the screenshot can be viewed as the attachment 'CPU.png'.

    Please help? I'm a huge Photoshop user so it really stinks to be unable to use the programme! And I can't afford to send my laptop to a servicing shop any time soon because I'm piled up with work now and can't do without a laptop!

    Many thanks to any form of aid! :)

    Yes, it's not good to force a shutdown by holding the power button - but what else are you going to do? Windows has actually gotten much better at this than it was back in the XP days (the forced shutdown isn't as damaging as it used to be).

    The heat and loud whirring appear to be coming from your CPU and it's cooling fan (that's what's to the left of the touchpad in the youtube video that I saw. This is generally an indication of overheating. Have you blown out the vents with canned air (to remove dirt/dust/hairballs)? Do you use the laptop on a hard surface or with a cooling pad? The more air circulation below and on the sides of the laptop, the better it will cool itself.

    In most cases (but not all) the fact that it has no problems in Safe Mode can be traced to a 3rd party program. Have you used Photoshop like you normally do when in Safe Mode?

    Do you use any temperature monitoring software? If not, I'd suggest this free program: HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools
    Temps over 60ºC (may be higher in laptops) are a caution for the CPU. Video cards can go a bit higher, while motherboard and hard drive temps should be lower. It's best to just let us know the temps that you find just before it locks up.

    All 3 memory dumps are STOP 0x9F (Driver Power State Failure) and all 3 point at the video drivers. As such, I'd first suspect that your video card is overheating. Please take the steps that I suggested above to keep the laptop cool and see if that helps. If not, then continue on with the rest of the advice below:

    You have an issue with this device in Device Manager:
    This is usually a result of damage caused by a malware infection. I strongly suggest running several independent scans of the system to ensure that it's not infected (and in case your Trend Micro has been corrupted by the virus'). I maintain a list of free scanners here: Free Online AntiMalware Resources

    You have both TrendMicro Internet Security and Norton Anti-virus installed. Please uninstall the Norton. If you choose to uninstall the TrendMicro instead of the Norton, then you'll also have to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on. Only use one anti-virus and one firewall at a time. The competition between the 2 can allow virus' to get on your system.

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
