So, this is like the forth time my Compaq Armada M700 has messed up... but what do you expect from an -old- computer?
So, this time it's to do with it just randomly dying...
Sometimes I turn my computer on and then I have it running for a few minutes and then it dies, other times when I'm gaming.
The first time it happened I thought I had just gotten it too hot and so it shut itself off as self-preservation, so I unplugged it, flipped it over and opened up the bottom to let it cool for five minutes, then put the bottom back on and started it up - worked fine after five minutes.
But ever since then it has a tendency to just randomly shut off if I try to use it for more than about an hour and a half where before I could game for several hours at a time.
I do have it raised off of my desk to make sure it doesn't get too hot, but what else can I do?
Anyone have any ideas on what's going on? I can't afford to buy a new laptop yet.
