i have a inspiron 8000 that was dropped and since then has started rebooting
itself. it seems to start doing this after running for awhile so i suspect
it might be heat related. i have taken it apart and reseated everything to
make sure nothing was loose. does anyone have an idea of what i could try
next?

Thanks

You could you could confirm your rebooting is truly heat related by running
http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html

This German "fan utility" will not only control when the fans operate and at
what RPM, but also place a Temp monitor on your taskbar to confirm what temp
it re-boots!
