Default My laptop sucks

ok i just had to downgrade my laptops CPU back to the original 1.8GHz from the 2.2GHz because it was getting hot all of the sudden and over heating and cutting off... so now i have the 1.8 in there again but now my problem is that after about 15 mins the screen fades to complete white and wont do anything... i had it plugged into a monitor and it just cut the monitor off... any suggestions on what it is... PLEASE HELP

Why did you OC it in the first place? In laptops this is a very risky thing to do. And the screen fades white? I've never heard of that. If it was black I'd say your LED (Is this the correct term for the backlight behind the screen?) is going out. My guess is that it has to do with the overheating.

Sounds like you damaged your video card.

but the thing is it just recently started to over heat and idk why... but it would run fine back when i first did it... but now that i downgraded it back itll run just fine but like i said after about 15-20 mins it would just fade to white or just cut off the screen... but the computer was still turned off.. so just now i said to the hell with it and put the 2.2 back into it...
