    Ive been working on this laptop and for some reason it will randomly reset itself, there's nothing blocking the air flow is there anything else that could be causing this?

    What make/model is the laptop?
    How old is it?

    Are you running XP, Vista, 7?

    What exactly do you mean by "reset itself"? Are you talking about the power keeps turning off or something else?

    Sounds like the OP is describing a bugcheck reboot. (A stop error) (It's usually seen with systems that had too much of an overclock or RAM that's not seated properly or a RAM slot issue)

    With a laptop, it's more likely to be a bad battery.
