Hi, I take its a laptop. Well, the problem is most likely to be the heatsink is obstructed by dust. Clean the exhausts with canned air. Important: do it with the laptop off and battery taken off.

Ps: You have a chance the fan malfunction.

Some people have found this computer is not stable running on Vista. Which Windows have you? How old is the computer? It may help to make sure you have the latest drivers.
It sounds like an over-heating problem which should not happen so fast. Check if the fan is running properly and vaccuum is if there is any doubt.

Frozen screen when hot


- Stop Overclocking your CPU.
- Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor.
- Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals.
- Use High Speed fans.
- Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor.
- Fix OS registry with reliable program like I always use Reginout.
- Shut down your computer atleast two hour a day.

Most of the time, PC starts running slow and freezing by lots of reasons. Corrupt registry, unnecessary applications, as well as too many start-up items would be the major reasons contributing to this problem. Many PC users simply utilize PC yet never consider how to maintain and optimize PC performance. I would suggest you to download any reliable program to fix registry, to manage unnecessary applications & start-up items like am using Reginout since 2011. Many programs are available in market which can perform these steps, but don't believe on free products. Now its up to you. :-)

Good Luck.

Have a hotpoint side by side with water and ice in the door....and you can get ice but no water....we put in a new filter but no water will come out,,,,,help...thank you


Shawn- I had the same problem. Take a hair dryer and blow on the inside of the freezer door behind the water and ice dispenser. The water lines freeze up occasionally. Heat it for about ten minutes, spread the heat around so it doesn't melt anything. When you are done, let it stand for about five minutes before you try to get water out of the dispenser. I hope this works for you. Good luck!!!

Norton antivirus takes big space in the computer coz it try to block all the files and make them secure, so it slow down your computer specially if you have vista and with low Ram. so First Try to remove norton and check your computer? it seems the Ram is low so its unable to continue its froze, or if you feel its over heat, check the fan on the Cpu could be not working which make ur Cpu Froze.

Gateway laptop 450ROG freezes up after it gets hot & screen frzs


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.

Servis fridge / frezer not colling or freezing


i would firstly do a complete defrost- incase there has been a fault with the frost free system. if after a full defrost it runs ok then there was a fault somewhere in the defrost system including either defrost heater, cut out or possible jammed circulation fan.

Oven temperature


Replace the bake igniter in the bottom of the oven. It corrodes over time and as the resistance increases it finally reaches a point where the voltage is two low to open the gas valve. It's a ten minute job and the part cost $45-65.
