my laptop was freezing at different points so put it back to factory settings then started it up and it froze again.
it freezes while loading and even when browsing after 20 mins or so.
has got 2 rams in so took 1 out and rebooted then froze again, so swaped the other ram over and it done the same.
havetried swapping the memory 1 at a time still freezes then tried a different hdd stll the same. even when the laptop has been on about 10-20 mins still does it so dont think its over heating as is als cool. used vista on one hdd and win 7 on the other still the same.seems to freeze more when i am browsing. am stuck now.
As suggested by Woodchip and Jock!e, over heating is a likely cause of this sort of problem. Not the whole thing getting too hot just the CPU so the case
could still be cool. We don't know your setup as very little info but if you have the facility check CPU temp.
used thermal paste on the cpu but still the same.have cleaned out the heatsink, still the same. the laptop can be on for a day solid and work most of the time then other times within minutes.
seems to be more stable when been on for a while and worse when just switched on.
