My Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 shuts off at will, I thought it was a fan problem,as it was making noise, but I replaced it,I thought it was overheating, as it seemed to cut off more quickly, more as it got hot, or was multi tasking, but now it does it very quickly, even before it boots up, any ideas? Thanks J

Re: Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 turning itself off
Hi subji, try running the notebook without the battery connected & just the AC adapter. See if the notebook continues to shut down. It wouldn't hurt to raise the notebook off the table surface anout an inch but check the function of your notebook like I mantioned (without the battery first).

It sounds like the cooling fan is going bad.. when the cooling fan starts going bad it makes a loud noise and sometimes it doesn't even run. Here's the link for a fan for that specific laptop:

If you can access the memory module by removing some of the screws at the back of your laptop, you can easily add RAM if there are vacant slots for another RAM in the RAM slot. Ideally, the RAM should be of the same memory capacity as the original RAM installed in your laptop. Just handle the RAM module at the edges so you don't damage the sensitive components. You can avoid this by discharging static electricity from your body by placing your hands on a grounded object.
From what I can tell is that the CPU fan is the problem. The CPU fan is probably what is whining right now, so if you want you can try and replace it. Also if it shuts down frequently, that's probably because the CPU fan isn't cooling your processor adequately, so the processor overheats, and the computer shuts itself down automatically.
