Question about Dell 2.8 GHz Second Processor for PowerEdge 830 Server Pentium 4 (DF904) Processor Upgrade
When the laptop freezes up on you does the keyboard or anywhere on the top cover feel very hot if so check to see if the fan is even blowing, if it is blowing then its possible there is dirt on the heatsink fan that is blocking the air flow and thats causing the overheating. You would need to take apart the laptop to get to the cpu heatsink to remove all the dirt.
if the fan isn't running at all then you would need to get a new fan.
If the fan is running and there is no dirt or debris near the heatsink then that means the motherboard is not reglulating the voltage properly and the motherboard needs to get replaced.
if nothing is feeling very warm or hot to the touch and the system is locking up then the hard drive may have bad sectors and the hard drive would need to be replaced.
