Anyone know computers?

Postby TReaD113 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:49 pm

My 2009 Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop just rebooted 10 minutes ago, not acknowledging that it had a hard drive. I removed the hard drive, let it cool, and reinserted it. Now it works fine, even faster than before. Is this a sign of a larger problem or is it just a hiccup?

Thanks,

It sounds like it was a simple overheat. Did you have any of the vents covered? This happens alot when people place the laptops in their LAP. Big no no. Continuous overheating can cause long term damage, but if it was just once, Id bet it'll be OK.

I knew a computer once. Got on famously, but he started getting old and slowing down, so we don't talk anymore.
