My laptop is freezing several times a day and often restarting itself after half a minute, though not always and I need to restart it. It also just randomly restarts it self and comes up with an error message, something about an uncorrectable hardware error. I took a photo of it one time but seems I cant upload it here? [Edit: image above] Just started doing it randomly one day, didn't have any issues with it before then. Running windows 7. Thoughts?

Hi,

Here are some troubleshooting steps that may help to correct that problem.
- First is to run a complete virus/malware scan.
- Here's a link you can use for tools and tutorials.

- After the scan make sure to run Windows Update and install all the important updates.
- After all these, do observe if the laptops problem will still persist.
- My last suggestion would be to perform a Factory Reset if all these will not work.

I tried that. Didn't work. I have removed the hard drive and it's still freezing getting worse and can't really use it now, so nothing to do with the hard drive or software... Doing my head in. Thoughts????
