Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
My lenovo ideapad N586 7540 will not hold a charge, is overheating and then shutting down frequently. What can I do to fix this?
Not holding a charge is either a bad battery or a bad charger.
Overheating and shutting down is quite common.
1. Overheating can be caused by the cooling air passageway being clogged resulting in little or no air movement.
2. It can also be caused by a bad fan on the heat sink.
Both are easy fixes.
#1. Clean the airway with a can of air.
#2. Disassemble the laptop and replace the cooling fan.

Have you installed the Lenovo EnergyCut drivers? Without it, laptop may not work properly and turns extra hot. Try letting it cool down before you try again.

Replace the battery, it's faulty.
Batteries only have a useful life, then they have to be replaced. Sounds like yours is doing like the ink cartridges, where they register as being full of ink when actually there is no ink in the cartridge.
