Computer going unresponsive after awhile
It seems if I leave my computer on for more than eight hours at a time when I go to wake it up, the processor clocks at 0% and the mouse is still able to move around, I can click on the menu but actually trying to start a program is impossible, as well as interacting with any other already open programs. For example if I am playing iTunes, the music will stop playing. If I leave the computer on for a full day, I get a disk error screen as well. I just bought a brand new solid state, in which I have filed a RMA for. I am having my doubts now that it might be some other component. Any help would be great.
