Hi all you helpers out there
Got a bit of a problem with my lap top. Its a Compaq Presario 2500, and it gets very very hot, with the fan continuously running within a few minutes of startup, and a battery life of, wait for it, a massive, 7 minutes when 'fully' charged. Great. None of this is a problem when plugged in and using a 'wired' connection to the internet, but whenever i try to go on line using my wireless card, after about 20 minutes of use, EVERYTHING freezes, and i have to shut down by holding down the power button. The last time this happened, i removed the wireless card and it was also very hot - could this be the reason why everything dies? do you know of any other reasons? any ideas how i can keep my lap top cool/improve cooling fan performance?
Sorry for not being very technical with regard to info / terminology, i am new to all this.
Thanks in advance for any info
