    having the same exact problem with my sister's notebook. I had the same exact problem a year ago with my own notebook (same make and model) and after reseating the additional memory that was installed it worked fine. This does not seem to be the case for this notebook this time. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

First thing to check is if the laptop is dirty inside. From your brief diagnostic statement this is what I suspect.

Second thing is to replace the Thermal Paste, and Thermal Pad.
Thermal Paste dries up over time, and repeated heating.
(A Thermal Pad is impregnated with Thermal Paste)


1) Laptops are cooled by air inside. The cooling assembly for the laptop, cools the hardware components inside the laptop.

Main article,

Specific area,

Here you see the cooling assembly.

The small multi-bladed Black fan, sitting in the aluminum d-shaped shroud; is the Fan Assembly.
The curved copper tube is the Cooling Tube.
To the right of the D-shaped fan shroud, and copper Cooling Tube; is a rectangular finned Heatsink.

At the bottom of the Cooling Tube is the small metal plate, that sits on the Processor. It's mounting screws are circled in Red.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flat copper tube, that is sealed on both ends; and filled with Nitrogen.
Heat from the Processor is absorbed by this small metal plate, and then absorbed by the Cooling Tube.

The Cooling Tube transfers the heat up to the finned Heatsink.
The Tall, Thin fins of the Heatsink absorb the heat, then radiate it away.
Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry heat away from the fins of the Heatsink.

Dust, dirt, lint, hair, food crumbs, name it, is drawn from underneath by the Fan Assembly.
This clogs the fan blades, and fan shroud; and fins of the Heatsink.
The cooling capacity drops tremendously.

One example using a Dell XPS laptop,

See that thick 'dust bunnie' he removed from the finned Heatsink?
You wouldn't believe the amount of 'Gunk' I have found in laptops!
That video pales in compare!

(Tobacco smoke is a good one. Sticky gummy residue. So is carpet deodorizer. EVEN spider webs!)

The Processor, and graphics chipset; are the two hardware components that give out the most heat.
Desktop or laptop.

When a Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns if off)
This is a fail safe feature built-in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

2) The top of a Processor, and the top of a graphics chipset, (GPU), are not perfectly smooth. Neither is the bottom of the metal plates, that sit on them.

A magnified view would detail, "Hills, Valleys, and Pitholes'.
When the two components are placed together (Processor/Cooling Tube plate; Graphics chipset/Cooling Tube plate), there are air pockets that are created.

Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor.
Thermal Paste fills these imperfections, and is an Excellent conductor of heat.

Thermal paste dries up over time, and repeated heating. Looses it's thermal conductivity properties. (Thermal Pad is impregnated with Thermal Paste)

This is why is is conducive to THOROUGHLY clean the old Thermal Paste off, (and peel the Thermal Pad off), and replace the Thermal Paste. (And Thermal Pad on graphics chipset)

As in the previous solution, USE an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Do NOT use one, and prepare to use the laptop for an expensive doorstop.

The blower for the A/C keeps going out. The first time this happend,, i thought the AC had gone out,, but then a couple days later it started blowing again. Last week, my battery went out and so i...

Hi, an intermittent blower can be caused by either the switch or the motor itself. To find which it is, try messing with the switch to see if it will misbehave. If not, then the next time it doesn't work, try hitting the motor. Unfortunately your blower is behind the glove box, but maybe you can just pull the glove box past its stops and reach back to hit the motor with your fist. It hitting it makes it start, the motor has a dead spot on the commutator and should be replaced. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Try checking your Security Center, make sure everything is Ok or On.

If you are using two or more firewalls, I highly recommend that you use one, because it will conflict. Make sure it is up to date, has downloaded the latest updates to keep it high performance.

Otherwise, if it does not work, then you will need to take the battery out and use the AC adaptor instead.

First F8 and choose "last known good configuration".

Second, there is a small button atop the mousepad which turns the mouse on and off; might check that.

Good luck
