download and install speedfan, you will be able to check your CPU temp. if it's not too hot, then it might be a power issue. Have you tried removing the battery for 30 mins, then trying it ?

This is called lockup aka freezing. The problem is
caused by a open connection from the C.P.U. to the
G.P.U. and it should happen even on the dashboard
with out a game being played.

The Fix is to have both the G.P.U. and the C.P.U. reflowed
and properly clamped. cost 50.00-80.00 .

check to see if it locks up ( freezes on the menu screen after
10-15 min ) just to confirm my suspicions.


if you have any questions ,feel free to ask

After running console for about 10mins the unit freezes and the lites on console turn red but only the upper and lower lites on the left side turn red


If the fan start to increase in speed rapidly till
it's at full speed with in 3-5 min the G.P.U has lost
it's thermal seal to the heat sink .Some time if
the unit take a fall this can break that seal .

if the seal broke on the C.P.U. your unit would
go to two red almost immediately , so i don't think it's
the C.P.U.

OK the fix is to open it up and press down firmly
and evenly on the heat-sink under the CD drive
that is the G.P.U.s heat-sink .This should re seat and
restore normal operation .

That it

Gateway FHD2400 24inch monitor HELP PLEASE!


well it's not the computer going to sleep but the monitor is (sort of) because your computer is telling to. it has to do with the Power Options (title dependent on OS - this is what it's called in Vista)

Go to Control Panel>>Power Options - on the left hand column click Choose when to turn off the display - I'm guessing you are set to 15 or 20 minutes for the Turn off the display dropdown - change it to something longer to satisfy your needs (Never is an option).

If you're not running Vista write back - it's slightly different but similar path.

Cheers.
