My P28 bought off ebay did the same so i removed the ram cards and using a artist fine paintbrush brushed wd40(or q20 or any lubricant of this type)into the card slots onto the pins and replaced the memory.Next i removed the cpu cover and then 4 screws holding the cpu heatsink down and cleaned off the heatsink paste from the cpu and heatsink then replaced it with fresh paste and that seems to have worked and solved my problem.Out of intrest the paste was hard and tacky .

    Hi all



    Just a update,on doing everything i described the freezing on startup reared it's ugly head again.I stripped the laptop down to plastics and cleaned everything and soldered battery terminals and any joints that looked weak but the problem is still there.When it happend again i gave the laptop a light tap underneath around the fan vent and then started it up.It works perfect and when it freezes i repeat the procedure so i can assume it's the cpu joints on the circutboard that are dry jointed but on inspection i cant see any possible way of getting to them so it's live with the problem or sell the laptop if youre getting frustrated.Out of intrest the cpu socket is bolted onto the motherboard(above the fan vent at bottom of laptop) and causes that area to distort and with all the heat dry joints are ineviatable sadly on this lovely machine.

Hi there,

sorry i got to this post so late. you are indeed correct dry joints around the cpu socket (we get tons of these all with this exact problem), this is a well know fault (but you knew i would say that) and has been fixed in the past by reflowing the mainboard, anyhalf decent repair store should be able to arrange this.

sorry this is not much help.

My computer fails to boot several times and when it does finally get to the desktop, it freezes and then goes off into power saver mode. how do I fix that?


Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

When I boot, it rarely passes the POST screen , it freezes or when I try to boot a cd or the Os installed on the machine it ,either, partially loads it and freezes or just freezes without loading anything....


Since you have tried all the other components (btw this is the correct way of diagnosing a failing hardware, congratulations) the only thing left is the motherboard - you must replace it, it's dying.

Dell Dimension freezes at startup


Try disconnecting the data cable from the hard drive, then see if you can boot to the Resource CD. If you can, there is a good possibility the Hard Drive is bad.

If no difference, then try disconnecting everything but video, see if the system will boot past the Splash screen. SOmetimes periferal items cause issues

Acer laptop won't boot up


Try booting the laptop with the battery removed while the laptop is plugged into the wall outlet. Acer has a weird problem sometimes with the battery preventing it from booting. Sometimes it will get as far as logging into windows and then act crazy, slow down, and freeze.

Good luck!

My samsung p28 keeps shuting down when it gets to hot? How do you get inside it?


I ould reccomend that you take it back to where you purchased it, only because going inside yourself could make it's warranty void.
