I would take it you have a cooling pad with 3 fans positioned under this laptop, am I correct?
YES - AND THE LAPTOP IS ELEVATED TO MAX COOLING - THE COOLING PAD BY ITSELF
CONCERNED ME AND THIS HAS DONE A MUCH BETTER JOB
However your situation is that even with this cooling pad, your laptop is still over heating and shutting down.
YES THAT IS CORRECT
Now I have to question the situation with the heat sink on the processor, if that is the component that is getting hot.
I KNOW WHERE THE PROCESSOR IS RELATIVE TO THE KEY BOARD AND THAT IS ALMOST AT A MELTING POINT
VERY VERY HOT
I have to ask you what signs you are seeing besides the computer shutting down, that it is over heating?
NO - IT JUST PACKS IT IN WHEN IT HAS HAD ENOUGH (DOING NO WORK ON THAT LAPTOP AT ALL - BUT SOMETHING
IS DEFINATELY WORKING IN THE BACKROUND)
Is this conclusion based on using a software program that monitors temperatures? Or is it based on the laptop being very warm or hot to the touch?
I am wondering if the heat sink is positioned properly on top of the heat sink, I am also wondering if there is a thermal pad placed on the bottom side of the heat sink. I do not find those to be very successful in transferring heat from the core to the heat sink, it is better to remove that pad and just use thermal grease that is intended to be used on processor heat sinks.
NO IDEA - I HAVE NEVER OPENED THE LAPTOP UP (IF I DID I WOULD WANT VERY SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS)
The next concern I have is if your heat sink is warped or machined out of square, is the surface square?
Is it properly locked down and making full contact with the core of the processor?
ONCE AGAIN - NO IDEA
Hopefully, we can figure this out together.
HOPE THAT HELPS
