Laptop is Overheating
Laptop becomes abnormally hot after and during use
Faulty Ventilation Fan
Ensure that there is nothing blocking the airflow of the ventilation fan/system surrounding the laptop. If the area around the laptop is clear, clean any debris on the ventilation ports on the underside of the laptop using an air-duster. Air-duster can be purchased at most hardware stores, however you must be 18 or older to purchase the item. If the laptop continues to overheat after cleaning the ventilation fan area, consider purchasing and replacing the faulty fan.
Computer Keeps Crashing
Computer is getting "blue screen of death" or keeps "freezing"
The most common reason for why a blue screen of death occurs is because of a faulty motherboard. Unfortunately, the only way to make sure that the situation is resolved completely is to replace the motherboard.

Speakers aren't producing sound
If the speakers of your laptop sound like they are rattling or if there are distorted sounds and reduced noise, consider replacing the speakers to fix it.
Defective Hard Drive

Faulty Memory Hard Drive
Attempt a reboot to fix any hard drive errors. If a reboot does not resolve the errors, attempt to run an "Error Check. If the problem still persists, consider purchasing and replacing the faulty drive with a new one.
The battery is not working as well as it used to
If the battery seems to be running out of power significantly faster than it used to, make sure that the laptop is being charged correctly. If the problem is the battery itself, consider purchasing a new battery and replacing it.
Faulty Power Jack
If there is nothing wrong with the charging cable, consider replacing the power jack to fix issue.
