    Hi

    I am running windows 7 on this laptop which I bought back in April 2010. Just 30 minutes ago, my laptop suddenly shutdown without warning or whatsoever, and upon rebooting, it hung while loading windows. I tried running startup repair but nothing was found. I restarted another time and managed to get into Windows 7.

    Could it be a failing motherboard?

    Thanks for responses.

    check your temperatures and all the air vents are clear of dust

    you are using it on a hard flat surface?
