  1. Hi all I hope somebody can help my fuhjitsu siemens Li1705 keeps locking up if it is moved in anyway or too much pressure is put on the keyboard and surrounding area. I have downgraded to xp thinking that may cure the problem but it does not. I have read somewhere this is common problem and to reflow the graphics board solder. I hope somebody knows of another cure for this as i really don't want to cook it, I have no problem takeing it apart.

    Thanks

    I think I may have cured this problem now without having to cook the motherboard, underneath the large cover on the rear where the memory and wireless cards are there is a via chip at the front of the motherboard I have created some preesure pads stuck to the cover so when it screwed down it will put pressure on the chip and stops it freezing, shutting down. It worked ok for me I hope it helps anybody else struggling with the same problem.
