Hi dc3 :)

For some reason the laptop will auto shutdown to prevent it from overheating every time I turn it on.

Purchase a canned duster (often incorrectly referred to a "canned air") and blow out the inside through both the intake, on the bottom, and exhaust, on the side/s, vents.  If you can get the computer clean enough to run blow it out while it is running.

...and 'cause some models run hotter than others, consider using a USB or AC-powered external cooling assembly.  Range from $10 used to $80 for the Lincoln-Continental models.

See if blowing it out resolves the overheating.  There is quit a bit to disassemble in order to get to the CPU.

 

I have a seven year old desktop I built way back when, and the thermal compound is still good on it.

Roland... slow down, take a deep breath, and look at the first post where CodeSmasha posted that this is a laptop. :whistle:

Well it helped a bit but still running hot, so it's time to get out the Thermal Paste.

It's ok I'm an expert myself, so I know how to replace the compound on the CPU.

Replacing the thermal compound is that much of a challenge.  But getting to the PCU is a bit of a challenge since you have to disassemble a good portion of the laptop to get to processor.

 

Have fun. :thumbup2:

Well getting the dust out of the fan was easy and applying the Paste was no problem. I fired it up and away it went, so it was cool as an ice cube.
