Question about Computers & Internet
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal
overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the
problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

prise off the two corner pieces that cover the hinge for the screen. Underneath there are two screws. Remove these, then peel away the keyboard and the plastic covering. There you will see the fan system. Four screws (on springs - careful) will have this away but be aware of the power cable which is tucked in behind a piece of metal. At all times be careful not to damage the keyboard ribbon cable which is usually pretty fragile.
Another few screws (tiny ones) will have the top of the fan off then you can clean and put it all back together. The result: a laptop that actually blows air through and cools what it should.
Kindly rate if this helped Regards
