Hello everyone, I hope you will be able to help me.

I have MSI CX600 laptop (ms-1682), and whenever I power it on in a cold room, or when he has been cold for a while, he starts, goes into bios and everything, but when windows boot start loading, he just goes into some sort of hibernation - all lights that has been lit in indicator are still on, fan is spinning, but screen went black, and he doesnt respond to anything. Thus I have to remove battery. This is not limited to windows, or booting phase, because when he doesn't do anything, after some time same happens. Black screen. I tried also ubuntu, and Win XP, same. He just goes black in different phase. Fruthermore, if he is really cold, sometimes it doesn't even boot. I can't even enter bios.

I'd like to add its quite old laptop, bought 6 years ago. I probably damaged it by exposing to really cold temperatures, such as -10 degrees Celsious, under working.

I have tried all those things:

Cleaned it really good.
Checked all conductors, none of them seems invalid.
Replaced thermal paste, twice.
Windows change.
Ram change.
Battery on CMOS.
Battery on laptop is dead, tried without it, still same ****.

What comes to my mind is that it's loosing contact somewhere. So when he heats up, metal expands and fixes that. But why would he then start up to the point of windows boot. I have no idea.

So yeah, any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance!


 
That temp is well below freezing. They really aren't meant to be exposed to such cold temps. It may well have killed the display, if not other components. Here is a bit more info on the effects of cold temps.


How to deal with extreme temperature situations.

Cold (laptop): If a laptop is cold enough, the keyboard may start to curl (literally) at the corners and the touchpad will completely stop working because the sensor just won’t operate at that temperature. You need to let the laptop warm up to room temperature first, in the off state before powering up. If you don't, you risk damaging components.

Also, you may notice it is a tad difficult to open due to the colds effect on the hinges. If, when you start to open the laptop lid, you hear cracking/rubbing noises, STOP! Close the lid and wait for the hinges to "flex back" before opening again. Otherwise you risk breaking them.

Monitors are little more forgiving of colder temperatures, but even they have limits.


"Warning Level" temperatures:

If the room/space temperature below 35 F/1.7 C, generally speaking, it is way too cold to operate at this point. You are dangerously close to freezing, and that is when the physical properties of computer's hardware "change" by flexing (usually). Not a good idea to let a computer get below this mark and definitely not a good idea to operate it below this mark.
