Question about Computers & Internet
This is a difficult problem because I cannot determine the exact cause because of limited information.
This problem will need to be solved by trying one thing at a time.
Do not do all these together.
1. Reseat the RAM.
2. Remove the RAM and get it tested at your friendly computer store.
3. Reseat the hard disk
4. Run a virus scanning program on your computer/laptop
5. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan
6. Loosen the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly and remove/vacuum the dust.
7. Try removing the heat-sink, remove the old heat-sink compound and apply a new coating of heat-sink compound to the CPU and re-attach the heat-sink to the CPU.
8. Do a system repair with the Windows installation CD
9. If nothing works then re-install Windows, plus the laptop's device drivers and your programs.
You may need assistance from a computer savy friend to help you. Let me know how things work out.
