Question about Gateway MX6453 Notebook
I have a Gateway MA3 aka MX6453. The problem that I am experiencing iswith the computer freezing up. It appears to be related tooverheating. I tested this by opening up the back and booting it up. After about 5 min. the computer freezes (mouse won't move, nothingfunctions short of powering down). I blew canned air on the fan andthe computer immediately un-froze and continued to run for about 5 min.until freezing again. I spun the fan with my finger and it began to runon it's own and the computer immediately began to function again for aperiod of time. Looks to me that the fan has a problem and it isshutting down when it gets too hot. Is this something that can beeasily repaired without taking it to the shop, and what needs to bereplaced? Part source?
Ok well than it is the fan if there is only one but bad news is the fan will cost you around 30 dollars here is a good site that i use frequently http://www.priorityelectronics.com/gateway/laptopfans.htm
