Still having troubles but now it's worse. We bought the cooling pad recommended by friends and even the CO2 (dusting spray) to clear the fan & keyboard out. Neither has worked. In fact it's worse than before leaving me with 15 minutes at best. That may sound like a decent amount of time but by the time it boots up and I get logged on to my blog it leaves me with very little time. I can post blogs here but can't do pics. This computer has it's woes too. Please pray I can get my precious photos off of my laptop before it dies. I will be devestated if I don't have those. I stupidly didn't save them to disks along the way. =( I did save them to some other program but I don't know if its only acessible on my laptop or not. Frustrating!
