Answers :

Hi:
\015\012It sounds as if you are experiencing a heat related issue. Often the problem can be taken care of by removing the heatsink/fan assembly, cleaning it, and reapplying thermal paste to both the CPU and GPU.
\015\012I am guessing that if your laptop is over a year old, even if you only used it 6 months, that it is out of warranty. You have to be a little careful on disassembly, but it should clear up your problem.

But that turned out to be the least of my problems. The laptop in general takes forever to start up and
