Re: laptop running poorly...
answer to all questions...
1. the heatsink and fan were cleaned and free of lint
2. the fan itself was actually cleaned first, i thought that was the issue at first
3. the fan works perfectly and still runs like new
4. and the temp in the room is roughly 65*f with a cooling pad under it
and i ended up looking up the model of my laptop and i found out that the motherboard has issues overheating and break down alot, i havent heard of anything to fix the issue or resolve my problem, i bought the laptop right after basic training and needed something quickly.
