My Gateway laptop has been crashing lately. At first, I thought it was overheating, but it seems that it's not all that warm sometimes when it crashes. It's getting to the point where I can't even run many programs before it crashes. Any insight?

Hello,

Start the laptop in Safe Mode and carry out a Virus scan to see if there are any problems. If you think it is heat related download and run a program called CoreTemp which monitors your CPU temps. I have put a link below for the download.
