    Tried PassMark?

    PassMark BurnInTest software - PC Reliability and Load Testing

    Burn In Test one (Think they still do the 30 day trial unlimited)

    what was wrong with the laptop to start with, faulty hdd / ram or what exactly

    Just thinking if you download and burn an ultimate boot cd it generally has hard drive / ram memory diagnostics ??

    These ought to do it...

    CPU: Intel Burn Test & Prime95 (Run both at the same time and select 'large FFTs' in Prime95 to stress memory controller)
    RAM: HCI MemTest & MemTest86+
    GPU: OCCT & FurMark

    Well it's an HP 2530p which [ experience tells ] is not the greatest laptop for getting rid of the heat + the HD failure rate is rather high which does not help.
    Most of the main parts have been replaced by HP under warrenty on more than one occasion. I've run the heavyload for a good 2 hours and all seems ok. I've left it on my work bench over night just ticking away doing a screen saver so will see how it performs in the morning.
