Answers :

If your laptop is overheating, it means that the Processor fan is not working. You can damage it further if you keep trying to us it. Although I must say, this is the first time I've heard of using frozen veggies to cool it down. I have a client that bought a portable Air conditioner to cool his laptop. I fixed it by replacing the fan.

\015\012The fact that the unit works while being cooled externally points directly to the fan.
\015\012 Is the unit out of warranty?
\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
\015\012Thanks, Joe
I am having the same problem.
\012There is no blockage in the cooling system and the fan is running, but only blowing cool air, although, the bottom of the case in the area of the CPU gets extremely hot.
\012I suspect this is a flaw in the heat exchanger.

\012Attempting passive heat sinks made from an aluminum can and a new heat sink assembly and possibly adding another fan in the memory access bay cover.
