Hoping someone can help. I have a satellite L55D-S5050 laptop that I love. However, I have had constant problems with the laptop locking up. After putting up with this for a few months, I wiped the laptop clean and reinstalled everything. The problem seemed to have been resolved and was working wonderfully for a while. Then one day, I noticed the fan was running very loudly and after rebooting the computer, I have the same lockup problems since. I am not sure what to do at this point. I suspect the computer is overheating, but shouldn't the fan take care of this? Do I need to replace the fan? This is a fairly new laptop purchased from Best Buy. I love the laptop but I am very frustrated with having this problem because I just cannot use it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
