    Random system freeze - 2 Gen I3 I7 Flash Player content, obsolettwe


      Hi i have an intel Spring Peak platform exactly an Olivetti Olibook S1530 and it randomly freeze?!

      Specs Cpu Intel I7-2670QM mobile processor with integrated graphics intel HD 3000

      and randomly it crash and I am forced to push power button to reset the system.

      The laptop originaly mount an intel I3-2310M processor with integrated graphics hd 3000 and again with the same simptoms!

      The chipset is the Sandy Bridge platform

      I think is someting conected to the FlashPlayer plugin because it happens often when i am online with chrome and i whatch streaming material or almoust all the websites use flashplayer to make the website menus.


      Can intel investigate the problem and make a new driver for 2 Gen intel platform!? Thanks

            Hi ricky18ro, it is a terrible experience to suffer from this kind of freezing issues.


            In order to have more understanding of the issue I would like to ask for the troubleshooting steps you have attempted so far.


            I suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the Intel® HD Graphics driver, even perhaps using a different version. You may also reinstall Adobe* Flashplayer or use a different browser just for troubleshooting purposes.



            It would be interesting to determine if the issue can be replicated while using the computer in safe mode (with networking), if the system completely freezes or you still have mouse and keyboard activity (caps lock can be switched on/off), and hopefully some temperature readings.


            You may also run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool: Processors — What is the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool?

              I have changed the graphics driver but the same issue showed!

              From what I have noticed is a overheating isue but is only show when i have 3 or more webpages opened in Google chrome. In rest do not seem to get affected by any other software or game played!

              If you need any other information about my system to elucidate the isue please contact me!

              Thanks and hope you can do some progress in solving this problem!

                Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling Google* Chrome as well? If it is an overheating issue it would expect that it happens more often and regardless the software being used as long as the processor is being used intensively. Therefore, I suspect the cause of the issue might be different, but more troubleshooting is required in order to determine the cause. Were you able to test the system in safe mode? Press F8 while the system starts so you can access it.


                Is this an issue that you can reproduce at any moment you want? Perhaps you would be able to connect a second display to the laptop while it is happening and see if it only affects that monitor or the other one as well. This way you can try to determine a possible issue with your laptop’s display cables. If that is the case sometimes the issue occurs while closing and opening the lid.

                  I have reinstalled Google Chrome but the same isue. Then i have used Internet Explorer 11 for a week and the issue did not happen again. In the end i'm 99% shure is some wrong code in the Google Chrome software that is somehow creating the problem with the Spring Peak platform because i use chrome with my desktop platform that is an x58 chipset and nvidia video card and no isue there!!! If you can talk with Google Chrome developers to investigate the isue with your Spring Peak info. Thank you!

                    So far we have not received similar reports from other users. I kindly suggest contacting Google for further assistance.
