Question about Computers & Internet
When i switch on my laptop it shuts down on its own after 15-20 min. if i continuously keep switching it on it shuts down immediately after 2-3 min
Classic case of overheating.
Turn over notebook and remove bottom covers. clean out heatsinks near the fan.
The fan usually looks very clean, but look inside the fan housing and you'll probably find a blanket of lint/dust completely blocking the air passageways (even if they look clean from the outside).
If you remove the heatsink off the chips make sure you put on new thermal paste.
Some models it is very easy to get to the fans, others you have to fully disassemble the notebook
You could also try cleaning it out from the outside with an aircompressor, just leave it off for a day in case the is any moisture in the aircompressor lines. This may fix it but if its really clogged, you will need to open the unit and manually clean it.
