I had a problem with my 6 year old laptop overheating and shutting down when it reached 160F using Speccy. i was told it could be from dust so a friend of mine took my laptop, still has it, and opened it up. Well he said it was full of dust. He cleaned it out but when he went to turn it on, never got to toshiba screen. It was just the black screen but all lights were on. He tried hooking it to external monitor and finally told me memory has gone bad I would suggest while you are buying memory, upgrade it with 2 sticks of the 2gb memory good Kingston ram pc3 memory. he said hard drvie and fan are running and that it can be fixed. Right now my laptop has 1gb in it. Would it do it any further harm to upgrade it with these things my friend says. By the way, I also have to get a new battery for it too.
Thanks for reading
