Question about Computers & Internet
This is the point where you need to determine whether or not the laptop has sustained permanent damage due to the overheating. Most laptop manufacturers have a safety cutoff that is triggered when the device becomes too hot and this feature will usually prevent permanent damage.
To determine if it is damaged you can:
Remove the battery from the laptop, and simply let it sit for a couple of minutes. Let it cool down, then reinsert the battery and attempt to reboot the machine. If it powers on, there is minimal or no damage. Best case scenario, your device will be fully functional.
If the device still does not power on:
Your options are to take bring the computer to a store that will run a diagnosis for you and determine to what extent the laptop has been damaged or you may accept defeat and start shopping for a replacement (worst case scenario).
I hope my answer has been helpful.
