Answers :

Your heatsink is probably blocked.

Many older laptops run HOT and will shut down very quickly if there is no ventilation.\012\012\012

You can check this by shining a flashlight into the fan vent and checking it's visible when looking in the heatsink vent (or vice versa)\012

You can dismantle the laptop to get the dust out.\012
\012
OR\012\012

Or use a can of compressed air to blow through the heatsink grilles and dislodge the dust, followed by a vacuum cleaner nozzle over the fan intake to **** as much dust as possible back out of the machine.

It may take several blow/**** cycles to clear it entirely - don't be surprised to see enormous quantities of dust erupting from the fan vent when you first use the compressed air.\012

if you take the second option, don't dismantle the case and it's best to do this with the machine running.

Plastic vaccum cleaner nozzles carry a hefty static charge, but as long as it remains outside the case the components will remain protected and the area where the air runs through the case is entirely shielded from the rest of the machine.\012\012

If the vent isn't freely flowing air when you've tried a couple of cycles (check with a flashlight for airflow) then the machine will have to be dismantled and the dust removed manually (I've seen accumulated dust turn into 1/4 inch thick felt blocks in some laptops and have had to write off many laptops used by smokers as they had become a toxic health hazard.). \012\012

Dismantling a laptop is not a job for a novice as it is easy to damage electronic components with stray static electricity charges and plastic case components while pulling things apart It's also possible to wreck cases by overtightening or using wrong length screws when reassembling.
