Default Re: Laptop hangs at welcome screen ~7 minutes

ah is there a sata hiding underneath possibly? Hitachi scsi drive. I just did a complete teardown ~30 screws and had the motherboard out. I wanted to do this just for dust, which there wasn't much of actually. I put a little arctic silver on the cpu and likely gpu next to it. The fan is pretty much enclosed with the cpu cooler so it doesnt pull dust into the system. Didn't fix the boot problem but seems like the fan isnt running so hard. The ram practically burns you if you touch it after its been running.
