I have a customer who brought in a Sharp Actius Pc-RD10 laptop with random shutdowns. I tore it apart to find the thermal grease between the cpu/heatsink practically non-exsistant. So i cleaned the heat transfer surfaces and applied a fresh coat of thermal grease. put everything back together, everything wasworking the fan is working perfectly so I then proceeded to reinstall Win XP and about half way through BAM! it just shut itself off!
Why?? Anyone have any ideas/ sugestions?
