My Laptop keeps freezing

  BIGBAGGY 17:28 18 Aug 06

My Lappy is a DELL LATITUDE D 800. It keeps freezing and when I move it about it comes back on.
Screen gets brighter suddenly as if there is more power. (Its like the difference between mains and battery)
Not dure if my Fan is working.

Is there a utility to chack the hardware of my lappy?

Just Dell are having a few problems with batteries at the moment?

its about a year old. Could the battery be going? If it was would this cause freezing? or would it switch right off?

Run the laptop on Mains Electricity for a good while and see if there is an improvement. You could also have the battery checked

To check whether the battery is one of those liable to burst into flames, go to Dell's site and type in the battery number, reply is immediate.
