I have tried many things, among which was uninstalling software, managing my startups, using CCleaner, but still my computer gets too hot and then shuts down. I need to find out what is causing this problem so that I can fix it, but I'm lost at this point.

I have an ASUS G60Vx notebook with Intel Core2 Duo CPU P7450 @2.13Ghz, 4GB memory, 64-bit operating system running Windows7 Home Premium.

If you need me to get any more information for you, please give me step-by-step instructions and please only give me one action to do at a time, as I'm severely ADD and will lose track of what I'm doing. :blink:

Hi,

Have you tried blowing compressed air through the vents near your fan. You may be surprised how much dust comes out of your laptop. Remember to always run a laptop on something hard so that it can breathe. A laptop that is running on a soft surface can cause it to overheat.

Hope this helps

The 1st thing I do with an overheating PC is check the fans and heatsinks and the general condition inside the case.
Then replace faulty fans / cracked heatsinks etc, remove caked on dust / insects etc, unblock air vents.
(Chances are it's a dust problem)
This usually isn't so easy with a notebook - if you're not confident disassembling your ASUS: take it to a professional.

A freebie utility called coretemp from alcpu.com will tell you the the temperature of the cpu cores, but that's probably not much help to you.

ill second wartechs advice.. if you are not certain on how to do it, take it to a pro.

a fan cleanup would probably be a 1/2 hour job.

hth!
