My 'Compaq'; 'Evo N1050v' laptop keeps freezing...
A few weeks back, it got to a stage where I would turn it on and the minute i logged in, it would all freeze up. When I say freeze, I mean NOTHING happens. The mouse wont move, CTRL/ALT/DEL won't work.. nothing.
Today I tried using it again, and got about 40mins out of it before it froze. I then restarted it (using the power button, as opposed to through windows obv. as it was frozen) and got 30mins out of it. After which, again I restarted and got about 10mins. I then turned it off and have sought assistance here!
I *suspect* it is overheating. The fan does certainly seem to be going constantly, but I have no idea how to even attempt to fix this. Of course, I may be wrong.
I don't know how to get all the technical information up, so I can't give motherboard / harddrive details etc.
I can't download anything on to it obviously, as half way through it freezes!
It is operating on Microsoft Windows XP
