Re-formatted/Re-partitioned Y510 Now Freezing?!

[ Edited ]

I took the barbarian approach to fixing the little drive C: issue and re-formatted/re-partitioned the HDD using a linux live CD.  I then used the factory recovery discs to reinstall vista/drivers/updates on the new 40GB living space.

 

I installed Safari as the normal browser and the computer has freezes and will not respond to commands.  Also, the fan seems to be running excessively or more than before.  I uninstalled Safari and reinstalled it.  Any ideas?

 

Cheers!

Formatting issue during Vista installation - Preformed low level format of root drive and updated BIOS(06CN31WW) to most current version (06CN33WW) to solve this issue.  Reinstalled Vista and seems to work fine!
