Question about Computers & Internet
My Samsung P28 has started freezing or blue screening on start up. I'll try removing the processor heatsink and reseating with new compound. My thoughts are the cause is a failing solder joint, connection or PCB failure. If anyone can advise on where to start looking I'd much appreciate it. Its been a cracking machine and i'll be sad to see it go.
This laptop is kind of old to put much money into it. I'll have to assume that you're diagnosing an overheating problem - screen lock up. BSD's or blue screen of death is caused by drivers. Before going to all the trouble of diagnosing hardware do a Windows repair. This is part of the original CD. If this doesn't work then do an operating reinstall. This should clear up all possibility of a BSD. Now to the hardware. If your fan has failed then I suspect the CPU and/or the video chip. You can check solder connections around the power supply connector. Good luck
