Having problems with your Gateway M-6843 Notebook ?

It keeps freezing up. and I have to keep turning it off and rebooting . and it only goes for about 5 minutes and then freezes up again


Answers :

I am guessing that the OS is fully booted when your computer 'freezes'. This could be a few issues, corrupted OS, bad RAM, or just overheating. Since I doubt your laptop is still under warranty, let's start with the OS.

Find and remove the HD from the laptop and fire it up. If it still is locking up, then it isn't the OS.

Check to see if the RAM is fully seated. You can remove and reseat the RAM to check this.

If your still having problems you may have dust bunnies living in your computer clogging your fan and vents. Compressed air should remove them.
Maybe it has a virus. Try reformatting your notebook.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
