I have a Dell latitude D610 laptop and awhile back I had a problem with it freezing up. I would have to manually shut off the device and then reboot. However, upon reboot, you would hear the HD start and then the laptop would power off. After a few minutes..no more than 10 min...the laptop would start up no problem only to freeze after awhile. There was one instance that upon restart I got a mesaage that the laptop shut off due to overheating. I replaced then fan and reset the heatsink..adding new paste to the heatsink. Same problem. The fan does run. I then tried to reset the RAM cards (2 512 MB cards). I discovered that by removing one of the RAM cards that the computer would boot right up after a freeze up. I thought it was a bad RAM card. I still have the freeze up issue. I ran a virus scan with Norton (in safe mode as well). No issues found and still freezes. I ran a dskchk...fixed some thigns. Still freezes up. I looked at all hardware on the laptop (drivers and such) and could not pinpoint it to a source. I ran a diagnostic check on the hardware (motherboard, RAM test, etc.)...came up clean. Still froze up. I then reloaded windows. I cleared out the HD and reloaded ith with a fresh
copy of XP pro. Still freezing up and now we are even back to once the laptop freezes up it will not restart rith away. I again have to wait a bit to start it back up.
I am at a loss. I cannot figure this one out. It does not make any sense. It stayed running during the entire reloading of windows with no problems. Now the problem is back. I have a feeling it something with a driver or deive (wireless card) but I can't seem to prove it.
Any suggestions??
