Amilo Pro v 3515 laptop:

The laptop constantly freezes up: Have changed Processor, Memory, New HD, Battery, Installed new version of windows 7 still no joy?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

FReeezing PC

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

  4. faulty memory stick try memtest http://www.memtest86.com/

  5. virus or spyware scan for both especially if shutting down with in a few minutes of switch on or internet use

  6. driver conflicts especially graphics cards get the latest drivers for your equipment

forget

3 if it does it battery

4 if you have renewed all memory however your new memory could be faulty

5 if a new install of w7

6 as you have updated all drivers

So your looking at overheating or a fault with the power supply on the motherboard.

If the answer to my post is yes,Then check the capacitor tops some have X some have K inscribed look for rusty brown colour leaks or bulging,If you do i recomend a new motherboared..you can buy new capcitors to solder on but its alot of work and not Guaranteed to fix it.
