    okay. my laptop is acting extremely weird. It's an IBM A31.

    it is not overheating. i am positive.

    here is what happens:

    I will use my laptop, it will freeze. The screen will freeze. Nothing can be done. No key response no mouse response. I must turn it off and start over.

    When does it freeze?

    If I am not running any kind of music, virus scanning software, hard drive defrag, hard drive scandisk, any of these will allow it to NOT crash! It's so weird! If I just use IE it will crash after a few minutes of use... randomly. It will especially crash if I just do not move the mouse at all for more than 10 or 20 seconds.



    I'm at the piont where I just keep music playing in the background, but, of course, I have the volume off. This allows me to use the laptop without crsahing. I want to eliminate this bandaid.

    I have no spyware and no viruses.

    Thanks
