    I have a rock quattro xp pro 3.2ghz 512mb ram.
    I have problems with the laptop booting. it beeps on start up and occasionally it will show the normal start up words on the screen , sometimes it shows some then doesnt load windows but more often that not it starts the fan and does nothing. On the odd occasion it starts up completely it will only work for 5-10minutes.
    i am not sure what to start looking at regarding a problem diagnosis

    Pull the battery and see if it still has a charge. If BIOS allows you to discharge the battery completely, then recharge it, do it. You may also need to make sure that the AC power connector is behaving itself. The wires sometimes go bad, but there are lots of replacements out there.

    tried this and it worked twice then returned to its normal process of freezing or not booting at all or randomly restarting. it is getting extremely hot however the fan is running.
