Post your computer specs and plugin configurations. Is there any particualr time it happens?

Use ePSXe 1.5.2 from now on as well.

ah yes a laptop. your computer is probably overheating. ePSXe is pretty intensive...and it will probably make your computer overheat and thus freeze.

when you are emulating, make sure your power save functions are off and that you are playing on a well ventilated surface (liek a table..NOT your lap..). better yet, plug it in and leave it on a table.

Considering the laptop's running a Thunderbird, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was overheating :p. Those things put out quite a bit of heat.

as a rule, always use ePSXe 1.5.2 for now.
youd almost wonder why one of the moderators hasnt put up a sticky stating that.
it would solve many questions.

why does FF [insert number here] hang or not work at this point?
why doesnt the FMV display correctly?

step 1:
delete ePSXe 1.6.0 (back up whatever you need to transfer over first, specifically memcards, plugins, and save states)
step 2:
download and install ePSXe 1.5.2
step 3:
copy in all your backed plugins, memcards, and savestates

do those 3 steps before asking. i learned my lesson the first time

yep, no one looks at that thread (even _mr_m_ who suggested there be one :p )

btw, ePSXe 1.6.0 does have its merits, it fixed a lot of games...it just broke some other games too :|
