System randomly freezes and requires hard reset
Your laptop is probably equipped with Intel's new technology called TurboBoost. This has been know to cause many issues. To disable it, first go into your start menu select all programs and open Intel Turbo Memory Console. Make sure to UNcheck the two boxes that say enable readyboost and enable readydrive. Once you do this open up device manager and disable the Intel Flash Cache Logic Chip. You should be good to go, no more annoying freezes.
