Hey, I have a C2D 2.26 GHz 13 inch Macbook Pro running 10.8.2. I installed 8GB of RAM and a SSD about a year ago. The machine itself is about 3 years old. In the last couple of days my machine has started freeze about once every hour. Each time it does this I have to force shut down the computer and restart it to resolve the issue. I thought the issue was a software one and so last night I reinstalled 10.8.2. However, this morning the problem is still occuring. The freezing is not application specific. Does anybody know what the issue could be and if there is anyway I could resolve it without taking it into the store? Many Thanks, Thomas.
