@Ramhound I have a SSD drive. You think there could be hardware issues? Any way to check if the hard drive is getting out of shape?

OK, so apparently, the problem is in two processes: DellDataVault.exe and DellDataVaultWiz.exe which I spotted using MooO System Monitor. So, all that's left is to remove them from the system!

@DavidPostill Finally, the 'mytrace' file from Windows Performance Analyzer: sendspace.com/file/enjk7e Just shows a 'break' in everything, and that's it!

@MadTomVane This happen all the time, not just when playing videos - even while I'm typing this.

@DavidPostill Not sure what "smart" means. It's an SSD. btw, I just tried MooO System Monitor as well, but it wasn't able to tell me anything.

Hmmm, so it's on to reinstalling drivers, I guess. Any way I can check if something's wrong with my hardware?

I looked at that question, and tried Process Manager. The spikes that appear in CPU usage when the laptop freezes are labeled as "Interrupts". What does that mean?
