|I have a thinkpad r50 starts to turn on but as it turns on and loads the OS, it freezes up. Sometimes it freezes during the bios interval, other times it freezes during the windows xp logo loading screen, and other times if I'm lucky to get that far, it freezes during desktop loading. If I try to hard-restart, sometimes it just turns off and won't turn on. Then I have to unplug the power outlet and plug it back in to get the laptop to restart. |
When the laptop freezes, first the screen freezes, then a few seconds later, the screen begins to pixilate. None of the keys (caps lock, num lock or scroll lock) appear to have any effect.
Is this a memory falilure, a hard drive failure or some other failure?
Can anyone help me out?
