hello all. im having issues with my hp g62 and looking for directon /advice. it will boot up and run for approximately 20 mins maybe then the screen goes black. the drive I can still hear running as when I boot it im trying to remove all data I need to an external drive in order to retain it. after the screen goes black and after I while I shut it off and start it back up. it says the system was shut down in order to protect it from overheating. then the screen after that asks for safe mode or normal boot which I do the normal one. I do not have a cooler for it but it never has seemed to get hot. I also have a hp dv2000 that you have to have the plug just right in order for it to charge. what would one recommend here? how do I tell if its the plug or power cord compared to the socket on the laptop? also on older equiptment is cheaper to rebuild/upgrade what you have if you do the work yourself or just buy new or used? it seems as if even new equiptment goes bad relatively quickly and a waste of money if one can fix/upgrade themselves. I don't do a lot with the equiptment I have. I surf the net, do some photo stuff and burn some home movies and picture dvds. and one last note, on older equiptment that im not going to fix and haven't wanted to throw away because of my data on the drives is it realatively cheap to turn those old drives into external ones? thanks for your help in advance.
