I just started to have a problem with my IBM laptop.
Following are the configuration of my laptop:
1) WinXP with SP2
2) RAM 512MB
3) CPU around 1 Ghz,
Yesterday ,I started to have a new problem with my laptop,when I powered on my laptop, IBM welcome screen appears as usual and at the bottom left side of the screen, it gives 2 options:
1) Press F1 for BIOS Setup.
2) Press F2 for bootable devices.
The WinXP use to load without any problem after this IBM welcome screen but since yesterday , the laptop hangs at this IBM welcome screen and after couple of minutes when I press F1 it shows a messege on the right bottom side of the screen saying "Entering
BIOS Setup" but it doesnot go into BIOS and this messege remains their.
Please note that couple of days back, My laptop was responding slow,and browsing was slow too and it almost reached to a freeze, the CPU usage reached 100% and when I checked the memory usage in Task Manager, it showed that 1 of the Internet Explorer application was using huge amount of memory.
When I placed my hand under the laptop base,it was really hot, and I think their is a problem with the CPU temperature.
Can anyone pls let me know exactly what could be the problem?
Looking forward to prompt response.
