RE: DELL precision m4800 freezes/hangs randomly for 5secs or so and recovers.
Same story here. Reinstalled everything couple of times, but freezing still occurs. Tried Windows 8.1, Windows 10 - to no avail! Is this occurring only on machines with AMD Video card?
I also have the feeling that despite that cursor is frozen - machine is working in background, because when it fails recover from such a "hang" ( sometimes I wait a minute and then I give up ) - I press the power button and it works - laptop shutdowns in a regular manner. Could it be a Catalyst / AMD related only? I knew I could not trust AMD - *** it! I should have ordered a configuration with NVIDIA controller.
