I've seen the other question, my problem is similar to that one. ze1250 has frequently freezing problems that I managed to solve temporarily by updating my bios. However, instead of freezing every hour, it froze once in two or three days. Now, I am experiencing another problem,( besides the freezing one) the system crashes out of the blue, turning off every 3 minutes. It is really frustrating . I was running on Windows xp home edition, I thought it may be a device driver problem, or a software conflict. Therefore, I formatted my hard. Right now, I am in the process of installing winxp pro , to no avail, since my notebbok keeps turning off. I am starting to think that the heat may be the culprit, since the fan keeps making loud noises.
As a college student, my notebook is a neccessity, so every suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
