Re: Automatic Shutdown

These are known to become clogged and cause the ventilation system to overheat.
Take some compressed air and after removing the battery and unplugging the machine, blow in reverse of the way airflow is normally.
It might be a good idea to try a laptop cooler with this model, as these aren't that easy to take apart for this service.
Later models are built to allow access to this area of the system for maintenance .
It is possible there is a capacitor going bad on the A35, but I'd try the first remedy .
Good luck.

Re: Automatic Shutdown

Sounds like your fan may be clogged up. I suggest you consult the documentation on how to remove the laptop cover and then clean the fan out. You will be surprised at all the crap in it.

Good luck.

Laptop prob

Check to see if the CPU fan/cooler is clogged or not working. Laptop could be shutting down to keep the chip from frying.
