Alright, I'm in Iraq, that's to explain why the power is crap. Now,
the power goes out on a regular basis here and every single time it
comes back on, my laptop locks up completely. I thought it might be the
power supply so I switched to my spare, only I get the same issue. I
then switched to my spare battery thinking that might fix the problem.
Nope, same issue. Some guys I work with are saying it might even be my GPUs. Now, I did some experimenting just to see: I put the old
battery back in my laptop, turned it on and got windows 7 running, then
unplugged the power supply. No issue yet. However, as soon as I plug in
the power supply my laptop locks up to the point where I have to system
restore just to get it working again(I forgot to mention that this is
what I have to do every time). I then put the spare battery in to see if
the problem was consistent, which I believed at the time it was. I was
right, as soon as I plugged the power supply back in the laptop locked
up. It's only when I re-apply power. I'm baffled.
