Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Out of curiosity if my laptop has a lot of dust in it could that be the problem?

If it is dusty enough and been running too hot for too long, and not noticed, then yes it can and will cause components to fail prematurely. This is true for any type of electronics/computers, and even more so for a laptop with its limited cooling capabilities.

Its says you have intel hd graphics when it should say (i think) you have radeon hd 5470 im pretty sure its nothing to do with dust
