Hi just got my laptop back from repair, it was just in warrenty thankfully. It had a new mobo fitted. it seems ok but everynow and then it freezes, locks up mainly when im watching tv in media centre but sometimes other times it just freezes, sometimes it ok for hours and other times about 10 mins after boot up. I formatted and started again reinstalled win 7 home and all my programs but it still freezes. is it still faulty maybe? machine is a medion md96640 akoya 15.6 screen laptop. cpu. intel core2 duo @ 183mhz meion mobo i think. 4 gig ddr2 667 memory. nvidia gforce 9300m graphics with 128 meg of mem. 320 sata hardrive. Medion tv tuner card xpress 54 slot. win 7 home 32 bit o/s. Nearly 3 years old bought from adli`s, I have noticed that it gets very hot but it lives on a latop cooler, could it be heat? or should i ring medion to see what they say? otherwise any idear peeps? thanks

You should stick with it, I have a Medion Desktop bought from Makro some years ago and had problems with it that they kept trying to fix, I finally got it fixed after posting on Consumer Page in Forum, it was the front USB panel that was faulty, and stopped the PC starting up. Get back on to them and tell them its still faulty

Try and blow the dust out of it, it's probably over-heating

FReeezing PC

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

  4. faulty memory stick try memtest http://www.memtest86.com/
