    Hey guys,

    I need your help as I am stuck and I dont really know what to do. I have got a problem with my laptop as there are something that are making to run really slow so I would need to investigate it to find out what the problem is and where the trouble is coming from.

    I have installed windows 7 on my new hard drive as I think there is something wrong with my old hard drive as it is running slow when I boots into windows but i am not really sure if it is the hard drive or the CPU. However when I installed windows 7 and used my laptop for a bit, I ran the program to test my CPU temperature to see how hot it is. I found that my cpu temperature are overheating which it is between 60c to 85c so I shut it down and I ran the memtest but it got crashes during the test so I can't find out what the problem is.

    Can you please advice me with what I need to do and how i can find out if i have got a bad cpu, memory and a bad hard drive?

    Yes that is correct.

    Unfortunately, I still have got a problem with my laptop so I will need to investigate to find out why and what the problem is.

    I want to find out how do I know if my cpu is ok or not, if my fan is ok or not, why the cpu are overheating and why my old hard drive are slow when I tried to copied the files from my laptop to my pc hard drive??

    The name of the cpu I got is Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo P7450 Socket P (478), the name of the motherboard is Toshiba KSKAA and the name of the old hard drive I got is called Toshiba MK5055GSX 500GB.

    On that CPU

    TJUNCTION 90°C
    https://ark.intel.com/products/36734/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-P7450-3M-Cache-2_13-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB

    so 60 to 85 if 85 was testing at load is OK
    On the other topic it was suggested to test the hard drive - however presumably the new hard drive is not faulty - presuming of course that NEW means new and not merely new to this laptop

    If it crashes during memtest then that is a reasonable indication that you have a bad ram stick or a fault on the motherboard

    If it has two sticks of ram and they are accessible try it with one stick and then change that - see what happens then

    the ram modules are under a cover on the base of the laptop
    see your manual

    Thanks for your advice, I will try and take one memory stick out to see if one of them cause the problem. If they don't cause the problem as it get crashes when I run on memtest, does that mean I have a bad cpu?

    How do I know if I do have a bad cpu or not?

    If I do have a bad cpu, is it possible to replace it or upgrade it?

    As for my old hard drive, I want to know why it took ages for me to copied my files from my laptop hard drive to my pc?

    Does that mean I have bad sectors or if the old hard drive is about to die?

    There is no click noise on my old hard drive so I am wondered what the problem is with my old hard drive...

    I have just run memtest again with each memory stick. It's working fine as there is no errors and it did not get crash totally but it will crash totally when I run two memory at the same time.

    I guess there is something wrong with the CPU?

    What please does "did not get crash totally" mean

    Did you complete a full cycle of tests on memtest for each stick - that is 8 to 1o tests depending on ram
    Memtest will show test and % starting with Test 1 and Pass and percentage the pass being 100% when all tests of the cycle are completed

    As I said what please do you mean by total crash and a crash but not total
