Answers :

Laptops like desktop computers need a periodic cleaning. Laptops have an Air Intake Duct. Typically this duct is located on the bottom of a laptop. Yours is on the left side located towards the rear, and not on the bottom.


This air intake duct is in a perfect(?) place, to 'ingest' all kinds of foreign debris.
Dust/Dirt/Hair/Food Crumbs/Lint, you name it. Even if you are a perfect housekeeper, and a fastidiously neat person. This duct gets clogged up!

Plus, your Lenova laptop is built to an ultra portable scale. Laptop designs, typically stuff all the components used in a large desktop computer, in a small box. Your 'box' is even smaller than a typical laptop!

I would recommend cleaning out the Air Intake Duct, (NOT the Exhaust Duct!!), with a can of compressed air for computers, and a recommendation of buying a laptop cooler pad.
These two solutions should help keep your laptop cool to a point where it will operate.

BEFORE you use that can of compressed air for computers, REMOVE the AC adapter, (Charger), if plugged in, and the battery! NO electricity to the laptop. (The CMOS battery that is deep inside the laptop, is of no consequence in this matter)

When a processor inside a computer becomes too hot, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off actually)
This is a Fail Safe feature, built in to keep the processor from burning up. (Sometimes Literally! Like ON FIRE!)
NO processor operating, NO computer.

Here are a few examples of Notebook, (Laptop), coolers. Just from these few examples, you can see a laptop cooler pad is relatively cheap.
