Hi,

This can be the sign of a problem with the mother-board. So it might need to be replaced. I suggest you contact the store where you bought it. Otherwise it will cost you a new computer.

Sounds like it's hitting a dead cell in the battery. If you are a very skilled electrician or computer tech you can find and replace dead cells in the battery by taking it apart. Otherwise your safest and easiest solution would be the purchase a replacement battery. Check on ebay, usually you can find them for a fraction of regular cost.

Without doubt symptomatic of overheating.(hence the fan trying to cool all the time)
You need to remove the bottom cover of the laptop and vacuum out any dust that has accumulated in the heatsink and fan area. You may have to on tis model, partly dismantle the laptop to get the heatsink and fan. Given the 2nd part of the problem you describe, this is no bad thing, as a niosy fan MIGHT indicate a dying fan bearing, if it is not just a matter of being clogged, a replacement with heatsink can be had for about a tenner on Ebay.

I must stress, do NOT use the laptop until you sort this, as overheating will eventually cause the graphics chip to unsolder

Hi!
Issues like this mostly caused by a program or simply a corrupted operating system updates. I would suggest we try restoring the laptop back in time when the issue is not yet present. We can achieve this by performing System Restore, if I'm not mistaken, this laptop has Windows 7. Please click on the Start button, then go to All Programs> Accessories> System Tools and then finally System Restore. Please select a date when the issue is not yet present. Then, please reboot the laptop.
Hope this helps.

Try to use system restore, so that for you to be able to analyze the problem. Click on start then select all programs, then accessories , system tools, system restore. Please select the day or time you think your loptop was working properly just before you encountered the sound problem. wait till it reboots. select ok at windows option. try it if it still exists. Have a nice day.

From Microsoft:
Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

under windows logs look for system
in system the look for a message with a red icon, it will tell you why your computer is rebooting

For a computer that new get it repaired under warranty, if it is having problems now, they will get worse the older it gets and more expensive.
