I would be interested in knowing if indeed that is the root of the problem.

For the past two days (up until a few hours ago) my laptop hadn't frozen at all. I've been watching the temperatures on Core Temp and Speedfan, and they have been quite low. But at times they reached above 70 degrees (Celsius), into the mid-70s. Is that a possible reason for the freezing?
Maybe I just need to buy a cooling fan?

It is great to hear it has been running good all this time.

Yes this can be the problem.

in additon to all the things that happend to his A200 mine freezes even before start up somtimes. I have found it has frozen:
- during normal start up (windows xp loading screen)
- after normal start up a few mins in it locked up (most occuring)
- frozen during a spyware check
- in safemode start up it has frozen ( though starting in safe mode seems to be the most successful if i manage to enter safemode, with no freezes in hours.)
- using recovery disk it has completed the whole process and then frozen when installing the OS
- And most annoyingly it freezes when doing an error disk check, somtimes freezing before it starts somtimes 10 - 12% in
Ive used the xp recovery disk to set it to factory settings (still froze), used it to clear the HDD (still freezes) manged to reinstall the orginal vista system the laptop had before the usual freezing a few mins into it.
Previously have done a defrag, performed a spyware and virus scan with nothing appearing with the problems still happening. So atm i have a fresh install of vista on with nothing else on it and its still freezing randomly.
Any help would be appreciated.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.

I know this is an old post but i believe i have found out what locks these A200's up ( there are a few on various forums with this problem ).
I have three of these machines and although very good for what i do ( automotive diagnostics ) one of them would just freeze whenever it felt like it. Sometimes three or four times a day, other times it could be ok for days. So like others i tried various software programs to try and capture the event but nothing would show. Whatever was on the screen at the time was visible but no hardware response ( mouse, keyboard, caps lock etc ) all dead. Power button reset was the only way back.
Well last week one of the batteries in a good A200 became unbearably poor ( been struggling with it for a while ) and so i decided to swap the better one from the machine that locks up. An hour later, the good machine froze. So i left them both switched on for a few days and it froze again, but the one that usually froze was ok. I swapped the now suspect battery to the third A200 and a couple of days later it also froze.
So, in my case at least, the battery is causing the freezing.
Just thought i would share that in the hope of saving someones sanity
