    The below is an old post, about 2 weeks old. but everything else remains the same.




    This only started today.

    Ok so in the morning i have no school playing sc2 with friends e.t.c then all of a sudden my screen flashes a shade of red, freezes and returns to its normal colour. It will not unfreeze, i try everything until i eventually force shutdown via the hold down button. Ok now this re-occurs throughout the day and later i get a message saying "your graphics drive is out of date" i go to update it and i cannot, because "your graphic drivers are up to date" so of course i try again, this time on the lowest graphics settings, still it shuts down after 10 or 15 minutes and now when i try and restart it it doesn't start and makes a whirring noise (above normal). When i eventually do get it to start it is by removing the power wire and the battery, and even then it is unpredictable.

    Any help appreciated

    even if it isn't going, you should really upgrade.
