I believe laptop is dirty inside........
The cooling system for the laptop is air cooling.
If 'Gunk' is coating the cooling system, the cooling capacity of the cooling system drops tremendously.
['Gunk' = Dirt, dust, hair, carpet deodorizer, lint, food crumbs.....you name it ]
The two hardware components that give off the most heat, is the Processor and graphics chipset. (CPU and GPU)
When a Processor (CPU) overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail safe feature that is built-in. Keeps the CPU (Processor) from burning up.
Once this has happened an Error Code is stored, and will not be released until the inside of the laptop has been cleaned.
Should also replace the Thermal Paste on the Processor (CPU), and Thermal Pad on the graphics chipset. (GPU)
Let's start here...........
Before you dig into that laptop, you need to be wearing an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Average cost is $3 to $5.
Here is but one example,
I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. I feel an Anti-Static Mat is unwarranted, and can expound on that.
You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)
