Having problems with your Gateway 8510GZ Notebook ?

Keeps freezing My Gateway 8510GX keeps freezing. It stays on for about 1-5 minutes then it freezes. I can't CTL ALT DEL or anything. I have no choice but to force power off. About a week before this happened I was getting a message that my USB Hub port was malfunctioning and I had to reset it. I got this message even though there was nothing plugged into the USB.


Answers :

Sounds like motherboard problems, but not 100% pointing to that. If you have the knowledge to do so - run a linux boot cd (can be found on a lot of PC magazine DVDs) and see if it crashes with that as well.

\015\012Other things to check are the heat your laptop is outputting, check for any burning smells from where the airflow comes out of the laptop, check that your power cable for the laptop is not faulty.
