\015\0121. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

\015\0122. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

Hi..

If the laptop shutdown maybe it cause overheating.
Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if\015\012they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before\015\012overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart\015\012person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil\015\012the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down\015\012for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a\015\012fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and\015\012shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can\015\012figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is\015\012generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign\015\012of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re\015\012using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless\015\012you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been\015\012working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct\015\012sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a\015\012warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the\015\012cooling system a serious cleaning.

Good luck !!!
