Answers :

There are two ways to discover the problem. The problem is either a software problem or a hardware problem. Since it's easier to discover a hardware problem, start there.
\015\012Did your laptop come with any kind of diagnostic software? I would run that first. The other thing you can do is to boot the system up and enter the system BIOS. Set the defaults, reboot the computer and see if the problem persists. If it does, you can reboot the system, press F8 several times, which will prevent Windows from starting and will give you a Start Up Menu. Press the down arrow key and choose Command Prompt. Leave the system running in this state and see if the problem occurs. If it does, it proves the problem is a hardware problem.
\015\012Running Diagnostics is the easiest and quickest route for discovering hardware issues.
