    I was looking for something like this - http://lenovoservicetraining.com/ion/S10e/index.html

    The machine is not mine, so I don't want to do something wrong.
    Service is sadly not an option, as they charge an insane fee, because it's out of warranty.

    Does anything like the Lenovo service training exist?

    I can use Google too... I was looking for something that either someone here used or knows it's legitt. Or something official from HP. But if that doesn't produce results - will be using that exact article.

    Thank you both :) It seems I overlooked the pdf on the search results...
    Btw - quick side question. If temperatures don't cause random hangs, what else could it be? Drivers are all through MS Update, so they're verified, and I doubt it's them. Programs installed I've put on literally hundreds of other machines (both pc's and laptops) and have had zero problem. Only things I have left are a BIOS update and checking the thermal padding and radiator :S

    IMO high temps can cause random hangs. Have you done a fresh install of the OS? It would be helpful if you describe the problem and the things you have tried to fix it.

    I've done two fresh installs. This is my third. I've tried both x64 and x86 versions Win7Pro - both exhibit the same things. Random hangs when used for a while. I've tried stressing the CPU (P320) with OCCT, Prime, AMD Overdrive, but it doesn't seem to go above 80C even when sitting there for 20-30 minutes. Even when placed on a surface that allows little air to enter from the vent. I have yet to stress the GPU (ATI HD 545v), as it shows no temperature sensor for it, and I'm kinda sheepish when it comes to FurMark. I haven't ran a memory test yet, but won't memory problems produce a crash rather than a hang?
    I really want to help my friend, but... I'm all out of ideas :(

    Memory will not always give you a hard crash. If you have memory that is marginal you can get intermittent hangs. I would run a memory test. Also have you tried GPU-Z to get a temp reading for the GPU?

    I've just stopped a five minute burn-in of FurMark, which is the most graphically intensive work this machine has done. Still no hang. I'm gonna try a Memtest and a HDD test, to disqualify them too. This is quite annoying :(

    P.S.: It showed up on GPU-Z. Tops out @ 71C and stays there. Still no hang.
    EDIT: OK, GPU-Z seems to be all over the place... now it stopped updating the temp @ 79C. Regardless - it doesn't hang even when GPU is stressed.
    EDIT2: :D Currently running Memtest. Finally got gpu-z to work properly and it survived 5 minutes of extreme burn-in @83C stable.

    Are you sure the CPU was hitting 80C? To me that seems high but I can't find the thermal range of the P320. Max TDP is 25W according to AMD but I am not sure how that translates to temperature. Has the laptop ever been opened up and cleaned out? It is probably worth it to open up the case and blow out the inside with a can of air. The heatsinks in a laptop are easily clogged up with dust.

    It was hitting 80C if I close one of the vents (simulating a place that doesn't allow air in - lap, table, etc.). Otherwise it would hover around 73C. I hasn't been cleaned afaik. But temperatures don't seem to cause it :(

    Edit: HDD test revealed corrupted sectors. Currently cleaning 'em up. I hope that was the cause of all the troubles.
    Edit2: DFT cannot seem to repair the sectors. Wiping drive and trying another test. If that doesn't work too - we have the culprit :D THANKS for your time and help :)
