Sharp Actius MC24 PC Notebook overheating and shutting down

Basically this is the problem. My Sharp Actius MC24 keeps running really hot and then shutting down. I just bought an Antec notebook cooler from Circuitcity, but it still keeps shutting down. The Sharp laptop is about 3 years old, but I have a IBM that I have had for 5 years and it is still running fine. So what can I do?

    The issue seems to be the same I have with the Actius PC-UM32 and that
    other people have reported. Apparently it is caused by a short circuit
    caused by the video card.

If it under warranty I would take it back to them.
If not I would open it up and check for dust build up and make sure the fan is working...

Hello, I have a Sharp Actius MC 24. I'm looking to upgrade the memory. I found 1 memory board in the compartment with the fan on the bottom of the machine. This board was labeled 256 MB. Do I remove this...


The other memory module is soldered on to the motherboard.
Go to Crucial.com and run the memory upgrade scanner. This tool will tell you what memory the system can use and exactly how you can upgrade.

Do you know how to flash the BIOS? This could trigger it. Are you sure that it can accept the hard drive. Does the hard drive have jumpers on it? This should be on master if it does have one. Although not common on laptop hard drives it could have one.
