    Can someone please help me to solve this problem. My computer freezes regularly for approximately 20 minutes each time because I keep getting a sound icon with a blue bar across the middle of my screen. My computer is brand new. There is no specific pattern to when it pops up. It is completely random. It does not even allow me to press ctrl alt delete at this time. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Lizard,
    could you post which machine you have giving as much detail as possible.

    One quick suggestion... Did the lappie come with a manual or manuals? If so I'd give them a quick read through and see if the icon and/or event is mentioned.
