Tring to run restore disk but laptop kepts shut down

\015 Tring to run recovery disk but laptop kepts shut down before process is done\015

Answers :

\015\012Maybe it's shutting down because it overheating. Check all your air vents for dust buildup. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent. You can also try running your restore disk with the laptop sitting right next to a window A/C unit. Try to position the laptop so it gets maximum exposure to the cold air of the A/C unit.

\015\012If you get the laptop working again and you think overheating is a problem I recommend downloading a free piece of software named FanSpeed. Here's a link.
\015\012 http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFan.shtml I'll let you read the description for yourself, but in short it allows you to monitor the temperature inside your computer and to adjust how the fans react to this temperature.
