    Hi

    I've had my G70 for a couple of years now, and it's a great laptop, but, recently it's starting to get really really hot after being on for about 1.5 hours, it gets so hot that it shuts itself down! Sometimes you can turn it back on within an hour, sometimes, I have to take out the battery and the charging cable and leave it overnight, and then it can be turned on again!

    Obviously, this is really annoying, but I also want to know why it is happening because I don't want it to die completely!

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks


    Matt

    Could be that there is dust caked around the heatsink........you could get a can of air from your local PC shop and give it a blow out.
