Hi All I have always had a overheating problem with my notebook... Although I use an external cooling fan but it does not really help... So what I usually do is when it getting too hot and the fan noise becomes so irritating...I usually put it in the freezer for 5 minutes running with its cooling fan... Unfortunaletly yesterday I put that in the freezer and FORGOT!!! Then after an hour I was like WTF!!! ...got that out of the freezer...waited for 10 minutes...I opened it changed the termal paste...try switching it on...it worked then after 1 minute switched it off...then after 10 minutes I felt like doing some work..so I switched it on...and the notebook looked at me and said: "No! you f**ked up" Apparently now I have some hardware problem...I removed the hardrive and tried running it in another machine...not working..but I have been able to recover my files...I'll format it and see how it goes...but it also seems like the motherboard got a problem now... I been struggling with it the whole of yesterday and decided to buy a new CPU to connect with my 22" Led screen... So yeah I messed up yesterday!
