hello guys I have an old acer 4710z laptop, the battery is almost fried and if I keep it on with charger only, with windows it freezes in minutes. so i got linux mint in it and works for about an hour before gets hearted up and frozen and crashed.. I want to make it as a standby where i can d/l torrents and see them from this laptop. is there a way to do this? or should I just throw it out ?
