I have a HI-Grade r5400 Laptop which keeps turning off - I am pritty sure its overheating, as I get a wift of the burning smell every so often.
Sometimes it wont turn on, if you leave it for a while it will turn on - after 8-10 seconds it turns off.
I've opened it up and cleared all the dust off the fans, the fans seem to work fine.
I could try a different fan - I am struggling to find parts for this make and model online though.
Any one have any suggestions?
