I have a Gateway DS 600X laptop. The unit locks up on me after 1 hrs of usage and will continue to lockup on reboot. I have to let it sit for a couple of hours to really cool down before I can use it again.
The processor may be hardwired and impossible to change out without replacing the motherboard but I'd like to replace th fan first. I am unable to find any place that sells this part.
The warranty is expired and Gateway will not allow me to purchase an extended warranty or the part.
Any suggestions? I don't want to trash it as I still owe money on it.
