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
