Thread: Macbook Freeze Problem
08-28-2010, 02:42 AM #1adammgGuestMacbook Freeze Problem
I am running a Black Macbook early 2008. I noticed recently when say watching a youtube video and another program is open especially if its flash based, I will hear stuttering out of my speakers and on my iStat menu I see CPU spikes. Sometimes end up having to shut the notebook down to get it to stop after everything seems to freeze up. I haven't ever had this problem before. Computer is seeming sluggish at times too. RAM is fine I have 4GB's and 1/4 to 1/2 is only being used during these spikes. Could this be hardware?
I look forward to any ideas and suggestions.

Sounds like either the graphics card or the hard drive is going out. Have you updated Flash lately? iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.3
iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 9.3
Mac mini early 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4
MacBook unibody/white late 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

Yeah I've update Flash, not sure how long ago, less than a month. Flash has been giving me problems every now and then. Every couple of months it seems like my Flash player just stops working and I have to reinstall it. Things will play, but won't get any sound or video.
