Freezing Dell inspiron n5110 notebook (4Gb RAM-i5) helllpppppp

I bought a Dell inspiron n5110 notebook (4Gb RAM-i5 processor)2 weeks ago, on 15 October 2011 (it was a bad decision), the same day,it began freezing... Intel Turbo Boost Monitor rises to 2.90 Ghz, and freezes...
I contacted the seller, they didn't care.

I contacted DELL support, they accepted the problem and last week they changed the mainboard and the Hard Drive, but the notebook repeats freezing. it freezes 2-3 time in an hour for 1-5 minutes... The seller told me to use the FN + F2 combination to shut the bluetooth and the wireless connection, if I do it, the Turbo Boost monitor descreases from 2.90Ghz to "0 Ghz"..
My question is, can anyone in this forum using a Dell help me to fix my problem? Any idea? Because today I called Dell again (its the 4. time), they told me that they can change the notebook with a new one but it takes between 4-6 weeks. It is a long time....
I need to use this notebook because of my writings. So if anyone knows why this happenes, and the solution, please contact me.

Hi everyone, I've just recently bought this machine the N5110 here in Korea, and I've been having some of the same problems i'm reading at this thread including some others problems that have me worried. First of all i was a happy owner of a Inspiron 1520 for almost 5 years (for the record it still works it just too slow for me), and the only problem i had with it was a faulty (out of warranty) ac adapter which was easily replaced. Having said that my main 2 concerns are the following, first the adapter makes some cracking noises similar too a HDD working (HDD with normal operations sounds) it was a little worrisome but no fires or any kind of damage has occurred (granted it has been only 5 days), second and the most worrisome of all, the CRACKLING sounds that are coming from the HDD, it sounded exactly as when a HDD loses power and stops, well at first i was watching some Youtube videos cracking sound occurred (video sounds coming form the internal speakers), at first i thought it must have been a sound from the video, i re-winded no same sound came from it, tried reducing the volume but only lessen the frequency (interval) of the sound. Listening to music made it worse. I realized it could be a design flaw, i read a lot of the Acer Aspire One 8.9 models with a design flaw that kept killing the HDD drives because of their proximity to the internal speakers. THIS IS WERE IT GETS INTERESTING the N5110 HDD location (if you didnt notice WATCH this video
) its right in between both speakers. i would be glad if i was wrong and all of this could be fixed with a firmware update but its unlikely that would happen. I would like this to be fixed. NetMaestro i suggest you dont use your speakers at all. i Still don't know what i'm going to do with mine but this is unacceptable for me.

That's some good investigative work, but I don't think it's right. Because I have had the same problem as the OP with my Inspiron N5110 I7 (it has locked up five times now), and I have had the sound disabled almost the entire time I have had the laptop.
Sorry, it would have been nice to have had an answer to the problem.

Your laptop freezes cause of over heating...
the nvidia chip is the fault, the termal sink (cooling system) has some conceptional error. if u put a fan or cooling pad it might help a bit....
