When I boot up my Gateway 450sx laptop it will run for approx 3 - 5 minutes then the monitor will, for lack of a better term, appear to scramble and eventually lock-up. When I reboot after this happens it will take 5 minutes of the fan running or hard drive spinning befor it will start loading the OS. I first thought it was the lcd monitor so I connected a crt monitor from another pc and the same thing happend to it. That should rule out the monitor. The video card is intigrated, so replacing that is out of the question. I just want to make sure that it is not a problem with the processor before I buy a different motherboard. With my luck if I buy one, it will be the other that is bad.
