Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
My laptop freezes after about 5 minutes of use after the screen begins to fizzle. Looks like static on screen but then computer freezes.
I've tried to reboot several times but it freezes up before start up screen. It seems as though the fan is trying to cool the computer but it also freezes on the "ON" position so it keeps on running continuously.
I'm confused as to what is wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.
This definitely sounds like a heat problem. The system fan should cool it, but there may be a lot of dirt in the heat sink or along the path that the fan blows air. The first thing I would try is to get a can of canned air and blow it into all the vents under and on the side of the computer. If it is dusty, keep your face away.
You didn't say, but if you let the system cool down for a while (maybe 15 minutes or so) and start it up again and the same thing happens, it['s definitely a heat issue.
