Ok so tonight i been trying to fix my laptop but I have no idea what's wrong with it. Just started getting into computer repairing lol.
I thought the problem was the fan wasn't running well enough so I took it apart and cleaned the fan out really good. But nothing.

I do not believe it is overheating, because there is no way it could get to 100(deg)Celsius (shutoff point) within a couple seconds.

I would guess it is a problem with the BIOS/CMOS.

Not OP, but do you have any tips on how to combat heating issues without making any hardware purchases?

Generally, cleaning it is the best way to beat cooling problems, but it also helps if you can find a way (software, hardware switch, or BIOS) to speed up the fans, which will keep it cooler.
