I bought a used laptop because I needed a portable rig. It's a Lenovo G50-45. I installed 8 Gb of RAM, 2x4, and a 500 Gb MX500 SSD. It runs good, but after a while the display kind of has "ghost" images and it freezes up. I shut it down, wait a minute or so, start it and it runs again until it stops and does it again. All I'm doing with it is a couple of open tabs web-surfing, and running MS Word and such. Is it overheating? I'm hoping taking it to a shop and having it "serviced" will fix it. I can't really afford to throw a bunch more money at it. Any advice on how to proceed? Thnx, Bobby.
