|Hi. I am currently in Kenya with the Army and use my laptop for work. It is very hot and has a desk fan and heatpad running on it. By the way the system is a core2 extreme 3.4Ghz with 8Mb RAM and 2x Nvidea 8800M GTX graphics cards runnig Win 7 Ultimate.|
First I started to get locking up problems, no blue screen, just locked up and couldn't even ctrl Alt Del. But after a restart it was fine for a while. Then it wouldn't boot Windows at all so I started it in safe mode and disabled the SLI and put processor back to default speed. Once this was done I was able to run a high spec game for around an hour with no problems. Then, the next day it would boot for around 10mins then stall again.
I am at my wits end. I cant diagnose the problem. The RAM is new as are the HD's so I can kinda rule those out. I'm thinking either the Graphics card has gone or possibly the CPU or motherboard??
I know it may be possible to bake the Graphics card to get that working but I dont want to risk it incase its not that. I have noticed one thing whist taking it apart and that is the battery has 5 lights on the back of it when a button is pressed, this is not working. Normally the lights light up.
Also I have noticed now when I power up the fans are not running.
