    Hey guys, I've got a Sony Vaio FE35GP laptop and a while ago I started experiencing weird problems with the graphics. Pretty much what was happening that during startup or a short time after startup, the screen would jumble up and the computer would freeze. I had it checked out by multiple techs and ended up replacing the motherboard.

    That particular problem was fixed but now when I power on my laptop it sometimes doesn't start (all the lights go on and stay on but it never posts etc.) and when it does start it works fine for a while until it freezes, this could be after more than an hour of use. It seems that my initial problem was fixed with the replace but the thing is that my laptop battery is extremely poor, it will waste in less than 10 minutes on its own. Having said this, I don't see how this should be affecting the power of my laptop (at startup), cause this happens even with no battery attached and it's running off the adapter exclusively...

    I'm running XP on the machine btw. I just want it to power on everytime and NOT freeze while I'm using it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Thanks in advance
