hello im new to this forum . but back to my problem i keep having these small freezes for like 2-3 sec then unfreeze again but i can move my mouse while the "freeze" is happening. this is very annoying when i try to watch a movie or playin games like WoW or left 4 dead 2. this freeze started happening 2 weeks ago and ive reinstalled my comp to try to fix this and ive downloaded the newest drivers from the asus support page. note this is a new laptop Asus G53SW i bought it about 1 and a half months ago these freezes came out of nowhere only thing i can think of that might be causing these problems are my hard drive. my specs are: Intel Core i5 2.30ghz 8gb ram Nvidia gtx 460m 1,5gb I run Windows 7 ultimate and im sorry if this is kinda messy dont write much on forums .
