I'm very new to these forum malarkies so take it easy on me!

I recently bought a PowerBook G4 off a friend of mine second hand, top condition and really good spec, however, I think I may have a problem.

It is the 15" aluminium 1.67 powerPC and I noticed it gets quite warm when sat upon your knee. My laptop has started to randomly go blank but freeze. the power stays on and I either have to take out the battery and leave it for a while or just wait for the battery to die out.

I would normally try the hardware test, but unfortunately, I don't have the install disk and I cannot find anywhere where I might be able to download one.

I think I might have moved some solder or something, but i'm unsure.

ANY help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
