    Is this a continuation of your previous issue that was never resolved?

    Yes, I tend to agree; however, I would still like to see a test on AC before making anymore suggestions.
    so i removed my laptop battery and use ac and leave laptop for about 5 hours, but still freeze... i guess its not related with battery.what should i do? its really annoying.

    windows 8 release preview


    Well, I got the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 6400, I know it's an oldie, but W8 did work instantly, while this upgrade, update whatever you call it, gives me this problem when it started up it doesn't show the lockscreen, but when I push the start button again the login screen appears...........rather strange isn't it?
    Could it be that you need to verify your account and machine first at Microsoft?
    So I did, now I want to know if it is solved or not, I let you know...
