Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
My Dell Inspiron 530 freezes up after being on for a few hours. The screen goes whitish, shows thin lines like a crazy test pattern. I can't recover from the crashed state but restarting the computer takes everything back to normal. It's a few years old but has no new hardware. I don't know where to start with troubleshooting it. It happens every few hours, like clockwork (although I don't know if it's exactly the same interval from on to freeze each time). It never did this when I first bought it - only started about three months ago and the computer is a few years old now. After a reboot it's like nothing ever happened! I run Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP 3. The insides are described below. Advice welcomed! Operating System MS Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2 CPU Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz Kentsfield 65nm Technology RAM 4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 399MHz (6-6-6-18) Motherboard Dell Inc. 0FM586 (Socket 775) Graphics Acer X263W @ 1280x960 256MB ATI Radeon HD 3650 (Dell) Hard Drives 977GB Seagate ST31000528AS ATA Device (SATA) Optical Drives PLDS DVD+-RW DH-16A6S ATA Device Audio Realtek High Definition Audio
Check your battery status. It is possibly overheating whitin time and causing malfunction.
