Hi,
Please can anyone help, my Acer Aspire 1400 (win XP) laptop keeps crashing, I thought it may be because I was using it on my lap, thus restricting air flow to the fan, But it still happens when the laptop is on a flat table top. Is there any way to check this, could it be something else.
Regards tonyq.

It could be a software problem

what is your operating system?

Try the system file checker: click here
