Perhaps a bios update is in order if the issue happens again.

The one thing that you asked me to do I did not or could not do this. how can I set the BIOS?
Set your bios Cmos to default
i turned the notenook off and on restart i pressed the f8 key. however this did not take me to the place that i wanted.

Starting a machine in the bios options may be different than f8 try the del key or f2
But how about you remove the hard-drive and re-seat it and then run the test again.I had a laptop that would freeze on me all the time I never remember dropping it or anything but I re-seated the ram and the hard-drive and it worked Freeze free until the day I spilt a glass coke all over it. :rolleyes:
