Default Mini lockups - 01-05-2009, 07:36 PM

I have been using my mini for about two weeks now. It has been great. But today the sd card that I had installed as a hard disk was gone (I reformated and set it back up again). But all day it has been locking up every 20 to 30 minutes and stays locked. Can't ctrl-alt-del. Only option is the force it off. Any ideas about what is causing it. I haven't loaded anything new in several days.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble!

Does the problem persist if the SD card is not in it?

I am trying that now. Problem is that I have My Documents and some other storage files on the SD card. So I think I disabled all of the programs that rely on the SD card. So if this works I will have to figure out if it is one of the extra programs or the SD card, or a driver.

So it hasn't crashed in the last couple hours with the card out. I guess I need to think about what is conflicting with the card.

Have you used that card in the pass on any other computer? I'm thinking it could be just a bad card.
