    Laptop dying :(

    I feel my laptop is probably on it's last leg out- it does tend to get rather hot even though I have it places on a box frame when using it connected to my TV- (I took my ottoman and took the lid off- the width is perfect for the laptop to sit on without falling, and then there is a open space above and below it. Anyways whenever I disconnect the hdmi cable, it makes the windows chime sound and then blue screen memory dumps me... almost every time. My suspicion is it's just getting old and a lot of heat- does this sound on par or is it potentially something else? Is it fixable?

    Does the blue screen give an exception code? Usually that's one clue as to what's causing it to crap. Or if you really want to dig in, you could use Windbg to analyze the crash dump.

    Yeah reason I haven't is because it hasn't happened yet- I've been working real hard to keep it cool. I think it's overheating- checked fans, clean, idk- as things get old they start to degrade- I will though post back if I get more details

    Have you tried opening up the laptop and cleaning it out? Sometimes the simplest things can help. Also. it is possible (though sometimes tricky) to reach the CPU in a laptop to apply new thermal compound.

    If the problem persist please format your laptop with some other version of operating system. We cannot mention what exactly it is
