Help!!!

My laptop keeps shutting down after about 30 mins of using it. It seems as though it is overheating.

Best thing to do re remove the bottom cover of the laptop, as well as the keyboard and blow the entire case out with air duster. The little fan on the bottom of your laptop is likly clogged with dust.

If you want to do a really good job, get some rubbing alcohol and a few q-tips and clean anything that might have dust on it. keep in mind that you should unplug your laptop and remove the battery before you start to take apart the laptop.

If your laptop is indeed over-heating, it's designed to shut down to prevent damage to the internal components when it's over-heating.

Make sure the vents aren't clogged with dust and that the exhaust fan is still working.

Make sure that you're using that laptop on a hard flat surface and not a soft surface or on your lap that causes the vents to be blocked.
