if its over heating check the fan and if its not running very well you will need to clean it out.i find the best way todo this is with a hoover just put it to the side of the fan and try and suck the dust out,if this does not work you will have to open it up to clean it.or it could be the prosser over heating and if it is you will need to replace the heat paste on top of it.good luck.

Pending that you have files on your D: Drive that you don't want to lose, DO NOT FORMAT YOUR DISK. Formatting will erase all information on the drive and set it back to RAW settings.

If you aren't sure if you have BitLocker or not, if you didn't install it yourself, you don't have it.

Recommended Actions as follows:

1) Open "My Computer" or "Computer"
2) Right Click on the D: Drive
3) Go to the bottom of the list & click "Properties"
4) Click on the "Security" tab
5) Click the "Edit" button between the two boxes

A second window should open. It is set by default on "Authenticated Users"

6) Click the box beside "Full Control"

If you wish, do the same for "Administrator"
