My System Specs


Over heating? Have you tried reapplying thermal paste? Cleaning it out etc... Just a thought as far as "quick fixes" go. It could be it already fried itself from heat as I have read that model is prone to CPU heat issues.


Hmm another thought... the battery may be overheating. Maybe take it to a used laptop store and see if they have another battery you can try in it? Although if it's already fried (sounds likely) not sure what a new battery will prove.
