perhaps there's a heat issue with the laptop/CPU. Do you hear any abnormal noises coming from the fans? For future reference, computer related problems should be posted in the General Computer Hardware and Software section.

Could be. Did you have this problem before with the shutdown before you upgraded to the Celeron?

I wonder if your fans are about to give up? If the fan is louder than usual then its probably turning faster, its only if its making a weird sound would it be not working. The fan usually works faster/louder when it needs to get rid of heat fast.

Have you tried checking the laptop bios for temperature of the cpu, if it supports temperature monitoring that is. If it is overheating then you'll notice the temperature constantly rising.

Your welcome. I'll probably be offline by then because I have to go to work. If the temperature is not the issue, perhaps scan your computer for viruses or spyware. At the last resort, reformat everything and reinstall Windows.
