to you who knows laptops (pref.norwegieans/sweeds/danes)

I'm going away to studies this summer, and need a laptop...

he wants 5000 nkr for it, and that's WITH 512 ram and a dvd-burner...

is this ok...?

he tells me it sometimes shuts off due to overheating...
is this a common thing in laptops?

I dont believe that it should be turning off due to overheating. I mean, it might, but i doubt its suppose to overheat int he first place. 512 ram is good, but its pretty easy to get 1 gig. (or 2x512 for 1024mb to be specific.) But if it can handle what you want it for then go for it. But like i said I dont think its suppose to overheat. The fan should be stopping it from getting to that critical level where it shuts down. I dunno, I might be wrong.

I don't know about norwegian computers, but the ones here aren't supposed to shut down because of overheating.
Check to see if the fans on the back are working.
If not it's probably the CPU fan, I don't have much experience with laptop repair, (just desktop) but I'd make sure that got taken care of before i bought it.

yes make sure the fan is working and also check out the bios settings and update the bios as well! the fan may not be triggered to go on at the right times. a new should take care of that. if not, could be a hardware issue with the fan or censor.

Avoid it at all costs - I've had a PC that shutdown due to overheating of the CPU. It's a major pain in the butt whenever the PC shuts down right in the middle of a critical task and you loose what you've been working on for the last hour.

While this problem may be fixable, why put yourself through the hassle of trying to fix it whenever you could pick up a new one for a few bucks more.

The price is good :thumbsup: but that thing with overheating and shutting down ain't right. Like the others said it's be taken to a tech be fore you buy it .
