    Hi Guys, just needing some help with a problem.

    My laptop recently started freezing and lagging, then it went onto freezing within about a min or less and now it has started getting solid coloured pc screens such as green and blue (maybe purple i am colourblind). Now when it first started doing it I checked all the drivers to make sure they where upto date and did a clean install of the newest graphics card driver.

    I also tried stopping all programs that start up with the laptop. C cleaned it and clean/backedup/fix registry

    But since it has got to the point of coloured screens i have strong reason to believe maybe its the ram or graphics.

    Places where it has frozen include:
    • Normal windows - u could be doing anything from sitting on the desktop to playing a game.
    • Safe mode
    • Start up recovery repair - what happened after it crashed (it tried to repair it's self)
    There is no odd sound while it freezes and never gets BOD

    Can only think of running a stress test on the hardware to see if i get any errors but dont know howd todo that from bios.

    Thanks for your help guys/gals really apreciate it.

    Specs:
    Asus Gameing series pc
    Model = G51vx
    OS = MS Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
    operateing system
    RAM = 4 GB duel channel DDR2 @ 398 MHz
    Graphics = Nividia Geforce GTX 1024M
    CPU = Intelcore duo CPU T9600 @ 2.80 GHz
    Motherboard =Pegatron Corp G60VX (socket 478)
    HDD - 1 x WD 713 GB (Sata)
    - 1 xWD 313 GB (sata)

    temp = everything sits around 25 - 30 degrees
    = motherboard sits at 35 - 41 degrees
    = graphics card sits at 53 + degrees

    try reinstalling the video drivers

    connect a monitor and see if it is the same

    run the hard drive makers diagnostic on the hard drive

    run memtest on the ram 1 stick at a time

    is it still under warranty they appear to have a 2yr warranty on them
