Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Gateway M-1625 laptop that I got 1 year ago. It is outside of warranty. It worked perfectly fine, but one day I put in a DVD to watch, and suddenly it shut down on me after about 5 minutes of watching the movie. Ever since then, I've tried to get it to stay on, but it just shuts down after getting really, really hot. I installed Speedfan, and I confirmed that the fan temperature was way too high, and it was definitely overheating. I jacked up the fan speed and tried a fan cooling pad, and none of them do anything to even slow down the time I can keep it up. I'm not sure what else could be the issue. I am trying to get this fixed, because this was my first big laptop purchase that I saved up for for a while. And now, I've got squat. Please let me know of any solutions you may have to this issue. Thank you.

Again, it wasn't a gradual thing. It had no issues until i put that movie in.

for this model this is usually hot in 10 minutes
but this problem is very bad
temperature is normal in all time but u tell it is very hot

u buy a good fan cooling pad with a fan bigger than 12cm
it is very good way for cool your laptop
u put many ice in a bag and put in near mouse pad
u go to repair store
(it is necessary for your laptop)
