It turns off after 30 mins to one hour of use, maybe less depending on how many programs or how intensive their are. I took it apart twice, first time I cleaned the fan with a toothbrush, then again with a cotton swab and alcohol (which was a very long and boring process).
it works a little better if I put an ice-pack on the hot part but thats obviously not a long term solution.
This picture is taken about 10 minutes after turning it on, no intense programs running. the laptop is a Toshiba satellite s50a-d, and most of the specifications are in the screenshot below.
I live in a hot place, but it's never directly in the sun and placing a fan next to it seems to do nothing to disappate the heat. I've thought about buying a cooling pad but it would be a bit waste of money if it doesn't solve the problem.
