|My laptop keeps crashing when I play computer games that need bit more resources (but meet my laptop minimal & often recommended requirements). <- & it didn't crash before & with games that needed much more resources.|
Problem is that it has started do do so only during past few months. I have had this laptop for 2 years now. Right now while typing this my mouse and everything freeze for 5sec & resumed as usual.
But when i start playing games or watch videos it freezes totally or restarts itself without any warning or message.
nVidia graphic card 8600 GTseries with 516mb memory.
CPU Name: Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T7250
HDD: SAMSUNG HM250JI @ 200GB
What i have done:
1.Deleted my hard drive (because diagnostics shows some corrupt areas on mu HDD) using boot disc & cleared all bad sectors.
2.Installed Windows XP professional SP3 with all possible drivers (& updated them up-to-date including nVidia driver).
3.Logged hardware temperature with RMClock. Log files showed (after it crashed again) that CPU, GPU and all other temperatures were in their comfort temperature zone.
4.I also have cleaned vents and opened up my laptop & blown out all dust with compressor that is meant for blowing up tires - so i doubt there is any dust in my vents...
It seems to me its not software problem (original XP + all new drivers after total format). But i cant understand which hardware is malfunctioning and why (how could i fix it) ?
