    Hi I have a Asus GL75VW i7-3610qm with Windows 10 Home. 5 minutes or so after starting up it Cuts off. After turning back on, the system runs normally. Also, the computer seems to turn off after a few hours of being in sleep so I have to do a full startup every day. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    I see it is 6 or 7 years old, have you cleaned the dust out of the fans and cooling vents? I may be overheating. This may be similar to your laptop:

    Cleaning fans did not resolve the issue.

    Sounds like a temp issue. So it's either still dirty and not cooling properly, or there is a hardware issue (old thermal paste, heatsink(s) loose, or an actual hardware fault).

    It seems this only happens if I use Hibernation. Doesnt make sense as a temp issue because It only happens after 3 minutes then after starting back up works fine without any further issue. Plus everything checks out with temp and fan speed moniters. Guess its either hardware or drivers.

    Boot the laptop with a linux live usb. If it still has problems, you know the issue is hardware related. IF the system works fine running linux, then you know it is a windows/driver problem.

    Use either linux mint or ubuntu for this task.
