Laptop is freezing and restarting

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My old Thinkpad T21 has been randomly freezing and restarting in the past 2 days. Sometimes it BSOD's and just now I got a GREEN Screen Of Death saying there's a driver conflict. Nothing has been installed, no new hardware added. I've been trying to get into windows for the past hour and It just crashes while signing in or while loading. Anything I can do, or is it time to take a hammer to it?

Probably overheating. Have you ever cleaned the cooler inside?

Safemode does the same, can't reformat because it doesn't have a dvd or cd drive, just a floppy, and it stops at random places. Sometimes it hangs when loading windows, sometimes a minute or two after loading, etc.

I never cleaned it, but it doesn't feel any hotter than usual. I'm trying to get it to boot so I can run speedfan.

It shouldn't freeze if it is overheating though.

Maybe bad drivers?

Well he said that the BSOD (Or GSOD..) reported conflicting drivers.. so this most likely is the problem. The bad thing is that he cant even get into windows to be able to install/uninstall the drivers.

Windows XP, but it came with 2000 originally. And it can't be bad drivers because it worked before, and I didn't update any drivers recently or anything like that.
