have a medion laptop running vista
it some times takes several attempts to start up
will sometimes run for a few minutes and then freeze sometimes runs for 30 minuts then freeze
same thing happens in safe mode
have done a clean install but still get thje same problem
fan seems to be running allright so dont think it is over heating
best guess is its faulty hard drive or ram would be gratefull for any advice

Could also be faulty Power supply or Power Supply Connection. Make sure all connections are secure.
