Your yearly cleaning of the vents and if never, read the Laptop Troubleshooting forum and the sticky there. It has an entry about cleaning.
I have a Dell inspiron 700M laptop that's running windows XP.
the past week it's been randomly restarting. I'm just surfing the internet or whatever and it will abruptly restart. I think a blue screen flashes, but doesn't stay. I've used it for the past 3 years and it's never done this. I've hear of Dell's getting the "blue screen of death" I was wondering if this abrupt restarting will lead to the blue screen? is there something I can do to stop it?
If you have any idea please let me know!
