Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Problem continues on, my daughters HP Lattitude D600 freezes after 45 minutes of use. Hard drive seems to be running when it freezes. Running XP. She pulls and reinstalls the battery and it operates again. We scanned the hard drive with AVG, McAfee and Spy Bot and no viruses were detected. Advised to check "timer" on the computer-appears to be bad advice. Any other ideas out there? What about pulling the hard drive and resetting? Any help out there?
It could be a number of things. . Sometimes the unit will freeze when it overheats.. Have a look around the exhaust vents and see if there is excessive dust built up around there. If you notice any, you may have to take it in to get checked. If you are tech-saavy, then take it apart and clean out the CPU fan. Also make sure that there is good airflow around the vent when operating the unit.
If this is not the case, then you should take some notes to see if there is a trend when this happens. What sort of apps are running when it freezes at the 45 min mark. Is it only on battery? If so, its possible the battery is running out of juice and the software is not throwing the correct warnings - it just freezes the machine (this is exactly what my Asus EEEPC does to me when I let it run wayyy down on the battery - it freezes. However, it warns me a few minutes ahead of time). Try yours on AC and see if it has the same problem. If not, then its likely your battery. You may need to go in and tweak your power management settings to make sure that it warns you when the battery level is low.
