And did it ever work right?

Why not think over changes and use System Restore to that day?

Mine use to do the same thing

Mine did that to, but it did it when it had been left idle for a few minutes and found out that MS defrag was running. Maybe the puter is in idle and not standby. Took me 3 tries to turn off Windows 7 background defrag. lol I finally figured it out and it no longer goes nuts when in the idle mode
