It is probably tired :-)

Seriously - open the lid and check that the CPU fan spins when you turn it on. If not try spinning it to start it.
You may need a new CPU fan.

Possibly a compatibility problem with software. Check your task manager for for new or unknown processes, and check your startup processes for such issues. Also scan your machine with an anti-virus and malware scanner.

Hope this helps, careful what you download, and always scan before opening.

Everything freezes constantly after about 5 minutes or more no matter what is running or not. Have to hard boot.


Try this...reboot the computer and as it starts to come back up, press the F8 key at the top of your keyboard to enter Safe Mode without networking.

See if the computer will stay on longer than 5 minutes.

Run you anti-virus program in safe mode and see if there is any malware on your machine.

That's a start. Let me know waht you find and we'll work on it more.

You can start by uninstalling the program you installed before this started happening. You can also do system restore which you'll find in start>accessories>system tools.
If nogo, try disconnecting devices on the back of the computer except the keyboard, mouse, monitor and power. Turn the computer on without them. If the issue disappeared, reconnect what you unplugged one at a time until you find the culprit.
