I have this Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro V3515 notebook with a problem that annoys me head to toe.
This notebook often freezes suddenly in the middle of watching a video ( a HD or blue ray rip movie something..) where system has zero response i.e no keys are active, no caps lock/num lock response, no task manager nothing. The only choice left for me is to hold the power button to turn it off and return after a while. It became a continuous menace so I formatted the existing Windows XP pro and installed Windows 7 pro (because this model to my finding, is designed for Vista and compatible for 7, no XP stuff is listed in Fujitsu drivers and supports sheet. I thought XP or some mismatching drivers may cause the windows to freeze. ). Windows 7 is working just fine, all drivers are up to date (no manual driver install/all came by windows updates saying the latest available) but I can not still watch an HD video (6GB/8GB stuff) even after the RAM I upgraded to 2 GB from 512 MB!! I watched the performance monitor and it peaks up to 98/99/100% for CPU and 700/800/850 MB for RAM usage while watching the videos!
What is really going wrong? Is it the RAM issue or graphics card's? I have no problem browsing, you-tubing, applications usages but video playing does suck! Upon some deep down googling I found a couple of guys have similar issue (the Amilo Pro V3515 dead freezes in the middle of a 3D video game or HD video play) and none has a solution handy.
Any tips or ideas to help resolve the problem is highly appreciated.
