After about 5 minutes, the laptop decides to just stop responding and lock up. Mouse freezes, keyboard take no input and screen remains unchanged. This doesnt happen in safe mode though, so I'm wondering what could be wrong.
Any help on the matter would bve appreciated.

Info:
Dell Inspiron 1545
Vista Home Basic
Intel Celeron 900 @ 2.2GHz
1GB RAM

Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results
