I'm Currently Using a "Samsung 300E5Z" with this Specs
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1 Build 7600)
BIOS: Phoenix SecureCore-Tiano(tm) NB Version 2.1 07QB
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2350m CPU @ 2.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz

I've been using this for almost 8 months now.
Then since last week i was having a problem with it.
There are times when i power it up the Screen goes crazy like a Broken Old TV reception showing Green or sometimes oranges static like appearance. so when that happens i pull the plug off and remove the battery. then after doing so i press the Power button repeatedly or press it for 10-20secs so it will discharge the remaining electricity left on it.
then after that i put the plug again to it but this time it won't even Boot up.(i didn't put the battery i suspected maybe it's a faulty battery) the power button works and i can see the light on the power indicator but it will not even go to the BIOS so i remove again the plug and drain the remaining electricity to it again by doing the long press on the power button.
Then after some hour (maybe 1-2 hours) it Booted up Normally like nothing happened to it. i went to a PC/Laptop repair center near my area. they said it maybe a "Intermittent" Motherboard or Video Card. I'm still a Student so i still can't afford to lose this laptop since I'm an aspiring programmer and i only know basic stuffs about hardware and software.
I posted here cause i know there are a lot of Professional Technicians and Hardware Experts from around the globe here. so i would like to also take your Opinion on this. Please help me out. I'm currently Posting this Using the Said Laptop.
I Hope you Guys can help me out a bit. Thanks. Cheers.
I'd lean to a heat problem, try it on one of the cooling pads or set a notepad/book under each side so the bulk of it is off the table or whatever, also get a can of compressed ait and blow into the gris openings
UPDATE: i don't know if its gotten worse now. it goes to Blue Screen for like 10-15 seconds and starts to do a Memory Dump @_@ then it restarts, then gets stuck on the Windows loading screen but it doesnt move then the Broken Old TV reception thing shows up again. after a min. i power it up again it loads to BIOS but gets stuck on just a blinking cursor on the top left. No sounds alerts. then after i restart it again it wont even load to BIOS. Man. a Problem after another. T_T
its now always on Blue screen "STOP:0x0000004E" "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"
