    Laptop freezing and hanging out of nowhere


    I have a dell laptop, pretty low end but It still satisfied me, but one day I wake up and laptop freezes every 30 seconds for 1-2 minutes. It was unusable so I did a reset. Thought it would fix it but no. Then I hard wiped everything, still it got even intense. Btw it was running pretty smooth before. I didn't download anything sketchy, even if it is a virus it should be gone after resetting 2 times right? So I am confused right now, what could be an issue here? Laptop - Inspiron 1470 Notebook Computer.

    pc 'hangs' or freezes randomly

    While in use suddenly nothing responds to mouse or keyboard for long minutes, then starts up again ok for a few minutes. Have tried all usual restart/etc. online suggestions without luck.

    Have found in Task Manager - Processes - there are listed 4 'Suspended" items, Could they be the culprits causing the 'hang or freeze'.

    Can't determine exactly what the suspended are so am hesitant to 'End Task' them.
