Is there something I can do about this?

In the past I could play games perfectly on this laptop. After a certain period my computer started overeheating so I bought a cooling pad and it solved the problems. Now we are a while later and he starts shutting himself down more and more. This problem seems to get worse the older the laptop gets, is this normal and should I buy a new laptop or is there something I cant do about it?

Dust it out by blowing air through the intake and exhaust, where the fan blows air. You can use an air compressor or canned air. If you use an air compressor use no more than 40PSI and use short quick bursts of air. Overspeeding a fan can cause it to shatter. If it is really really dusty, sometimes disassembly is required.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
