Question about Computers & Internet
Danger! Voltage! Unplug first the device! You should open it, clean ALL with a dry brush and vacuum cleaner, take off the cooler with fan, clean them also on dry, then take a piece of soft paper, spray on it some alcohol and clean the cooler surface of the rests of the thermic paste, also clean the CPU surface. Then, put the fresh (new) thermical paste on the CPU, smudge it on the cooling surface and mount back the cooler with fan. Dont forget to connect the fan to its slot. The thermo paste you can find in a computer/ electronics accessories shop. The normal temperature should be not higher than 70C.

Most cps can take 100 -120F but when you go past that you risk burring up the cpu and other hard-where in that case. If your system is shutting down that means you are acceding that temp.
Things to correct the issuse:
Power down the system hit unplug power.
get a vacuum and if available can of air.
Take out the 4+ screws and slide the cover off the pc.
Clean dust out especial the main heat sync.
As you can see in this extrema example the dust blocks the airflow.
Also if a fan has stopped moving you can may need to get a replacement generally 10-20$ and is a easy 4 screw repair. Or for a cheaper repair clean fan then peal up its label on the back and you will see a oil reservoir just add a drop of veg oil to it. Fan blades should become easy to turn.
