    I have the same problem. Using Speed Fan I find that the cpu often goes over 70C and once there it runs so slowly that it is unusable.

    This computer does not have a fan attached to the heat sink (which is clean and well attached). The fan is on the front of the case and does not respond soon enough to the rise in temperature. It does eventually but does not stay on long enough to get the cpu back to reasonable levels.
    This has a Pentium D which I understand has heat issues.

The overheating fan is not controlled by a software, there are three reasons why your fan overheats. First in the hard drive, your fan is not connected properly. Second you need thermal paste to keep the metal part of the fan to stick to the CPU to cool it down. The last thing is that the fan could be dusty and not running as usual.

Keep on shuting down after 20min

Sounds like it's overheating. Make sure all the fans inside your case and on your CPU and GPU are working. Also, Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it.

1999 grand voyager IS overheating. Randomly, it seems. Short trips, and quickly. AND longer trips. Then, sometimes, it will cool down without further intervention from me. It SEEMS the fans don't come...

Engine quickly overheating is often caused by a stuck closed thermostat. However, in your case since the fans don't come on, the most likely culprit is a bad fan speed controller. These are variable speed fans controlled by the speed controller. They fail when rust forms on the mounting/cooling area where the controller is mounted. This is an electronic device that has a heatsink on the back. When rust forms it can't dissipate heat and that burns out the controller. See the post below for more information on how to replace it.

You may not have the correct type of fan for this to work. Typically, you need a three or four pin fan (you will see three or four wires on the plug) for fan speed control to work correctly. If you only have two wires, your fans do not have speed control functionality.

You can also have another issue. If you do have a three or four ping fan, you may not have it connected to the correct fan headers on the motherboard for it to work correctly, or you may have it connected to an external fan controller.

Sudden shuting off

The laptop is overheating.
You can get a laptop cooler that they sell at most stores.
It's a flat surface with a couple fans on it that blow into the laptop to cool it down they work great.
they have pricey ones to inexpensive ones.You get what you pay for pretty much
I got one from wal-mart for $20 and it plugs into the usb port of the laptop.
It should take care of your issue.
