    Ugh, bloody Facebook polls.

    If the 30 Day challenge wasn't bad enough, now the polls are flooding the homepage newsfeed.

    Worse thing is, why are people even bothering with them? Some people just have too much time on their hands.

    Whats up with it? (We do have the same laptop after all :rolleyes: )
    It keeps shutting down after the POST screen, saying it's overheated, even though most of the time when it does this, it's actually been off for hours or days.

    Sounds like you've got a dodgy thermal sensor and the BIOS is taking preventative action to shut the machine down due to a temperature that exceeds the maximum operating temperature.

    Can you access the BIOS?

    I can. Can't find anything interesting in there though. Sometimes it tells me it's too hot so won't boot, but I try immediately after, and no complaints :dontknow: Other times I have to wait up to 30 minutes.

    Either way, it's probably not user serviceable...

    Try speedfan to see whether any of the temperature sensors are totally off the grid.

    Good idea, I'll do that ta.

    I'm going on holiday soon, my warranty expires two days after I'm back, and I don't even know how I'm meant to send it in for repair :mad:

    Phone the manufacturer and ask their advice. Make sure you get it in for repair before the warranty expires.

    Will do. They can't suddenly stop working on it if the warranty expires whilst they've got it, can they? :erm:

    I don't think I've ever sent anything for repair before, I've been lucky :p:

    No. The date of the RMA request is what they use to see if it's still within warranty or not.

    Sooooooo busy at the moment

    Just passed my Cisco Semester 4 though - 82.4% :awesome:
    Just the skills test to do, and then a coursework portfolio, a forensic investigation and my dissertation to write... and 2 exams.

    After I've finished though, normal service will be resumed!

    I've had 6 exams in January, which counted for half the year. Last summer I had 6 exams which counted for the entire year. Now I just have to do my project, which is stressful enough in itself D:
