    right. well my laptop over heats sometimes. usually becos the vent that hot air comes out of is covered up by something. maybe look into that.

    Get some canned air and give the vents a seriously good air out.

    Used to work for a contracter company that did IT support for schools and a bit of home user stuff on the side, if theyd come in saying theyre laptop was overheating and turning off we'd give it a good air out with canned air, hand it back to them the next day and charge £59.

    Never once had a complaint cos it sorted it 100%.

    It's most likely overheating because the fan is clogged with dust (unless the processor fan is just fucked). Do what Dedbult said and give it a spray with some air, or if you want to do a thorough job then open it up, take the fans out and clean all the dust out from there.
