Can a computer that freezes frequently cause damage? I do not want to have to leave the portable gas fire on next to it all the time in winter.

If it has a HDD rather than a SSD, I could imagine the disc disc inside being able to bust. I could be wrong though. An alternative method could be to use blankets or something of the sort and put over the machine while it is shut off.

Have you tried turning it off and back on? :P

I don't understand the question...


"Freeze" as in seizing up...is totally unrelated to "freeze" as in temperature/weather.

How "cold" are we talking, here? Any computer should be okay mechanically down to at least 20° F, maybe even to 0°. Heat is the bad boy of computers, not cold.
