Laptop Problem

  AlexPB 09:47 05 Dec 2007


My laptop keeps on closing whilst im using it, I get a message pop up in white writing with a blue background and then the machine just restarts. Is there anyway of getting rid of these messages or whatever it is?

What is the error message? Which operating system are you using, XP? Vista?

I cant remember what the message is, I am at work at the moment so i cant look, but its running windows XP now, it used to run on ME.

Is there something that can remove all errors like this as i dont really want to have to buy a new hard drive.

once the 'errors' are known solutions can be found.

would this be the same laptop as the thread further down this page ?

or do you have two laptops playing up...

What makes you think you need a new hard drive, AlexPB?

If this is the same laptop as in your other thread, will you please close one of the threads as having a number of threads open about the same problem can get confusing.

Yes it is the same laptop

Let us know what that error message was, AlexPB, and then we should be able to help further. It could be faulty hardware (possibly memory), or it could be faulty software that's causing the problem, hard to say without the error message to give us a clue.
