Well its still running OK with the side off and fan balanced on a book.
Its obviously a component on the mother board heating up too much, or a dry joint somewhere.
Looks like I'm into changing the motherboard for a complete solution, but I've not done it before. Although I might take the oppertunity to upgrade the processer at the same time.
Am I right in thinking that no information at all should be lost when I change it? Most of my software has been updated via downloads over the last 18 months, so I don't want to start again. I do however back up all my files about twice a week.
Anybody any tips for changing Motherboards?
Back down Novatech at the weekend I suppose.
