    I have a Compaq Presario 3045US that freezes on occasion for no apparent reason. Mouse, keyboard will not function, unable to shut down, have to pull power and reboot. Don't get any error message and no repeatable process although watching dvds does seem to cause it to happen more often. Anybody have any ideas?

    Not really sure but perhaps the CPU is overheating? I had a similar problem on a desktop a while back, seemed to just stop completely when watching DVD's or playing games.

    Check the fans are all running and they are clear of ay obstructions. Apart from that im at a loss

    Thanks

    Have laptop cooler, happened while on hard surface with laptop cooler so plenty of air circulation, laptop case only slightly warm to touch, thought maybe possible software conflict?
