Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook
It sounds like overheating. I would check the fans in the back to see if they are packed with lint. You will need new thermal paste, then take the keyboard bezel off then remove the screws that hold down the keyboard. Remove the four screws over the heatsink and then remove the fan. Blow these out, make sure there is nothing in the vents or heatsink. Use a credit card to scrape off old thermal paste on the processor, and the heatsink and put a small amount on the processor and put it back together.
