It might be to do with Windows 8, but what would be overheating is your processor or RAM. If it is the battery, Windows 8 might be too much drain, or it's simply coincidence and your battery is had it.
Install DriverMax 188.8.131.523 or driveridentifier http://www.driveridentifier.com/desktop.php and drivers choose to present it requires inscription on site.
I had the same problem but once I installed these two could find the drivers it needed. You can also go to the asus website and search for the model name of your laptop.
I have another problem: after install win7, the batery not charge. I bought the laptop with Vista, but I installed XP, now installed
Windows 7, everything is working perfectly but not charge the battery, I've
tried everything: calibration, tested various power plans, I ended up buying a
new battery but no result . I think it must be some kind of driver or change
something in the BIOS that I lack despite having returned to install XP and
Vista and battery re-charging without problem. if you can help me send email firstname.lastname@example.org good luck
The battery may be shorted or the charging circuit on the mother board has a short causing the power adapter to overload. If the adapter is still functional remove the main battery and monitor the temperature of the power supply, if normal the battery is the culprit.
If the laptop runs extremely hot, then CPU will shut down (thermal overload) and will not boot up again until it has cooled down.
Overheating problems is caused by faulty fan (stop spinning) or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust. Check the fan, it should spin freely and remove and vacuum the dust from the fan and heatsink.
Replace the fan if it is faulty.
use your windows xp OS disc to get to the repair function of windows and run the repair option once prompted. your overheating may be the result of bad adapter or battery back, otherwise cooling sink on motherbord as stopped working
