I got a laptop that freezes when I load windows. It took me a couple tries but I got a fresh install on the laptop hoping it would wipe out any weird viruses or bugs. It didn't help. I can use windows for a couple minutes and it freezes. I don't notice a difference if I open a program or not. Usually in about 5 mins or less it freezes. I have two sticks of RAM and tried replacing each individual and both times it froze.
I'm guessing its a motherboard issue. I was hoping maybe someone had more insight into it before I took a gamble and order a new one off E-bay.
I'm not 100% on the specs but it is running Windows XP pro.
I think 1.3 GHZ processor
1 Gig Ram
Gateway laptop. I can get the model when I'm home if needed.
Like I said old but I would like to get it working for school!
