One month ago my laptop started to turn off. I notice that everything I play a video on the web or a movie or open a program that use to much CPU, the fan starts to sound loud and fast and the temp raises to 80 and turn off.

So I cleaned the fan with a dust remover spray and it work but still the temp raises when I do hard work. I bought another heatsink & fan. Now I can't even load it up and the fan sound very loud before shutting down.

I have used thermal paste (Brand: Ultra Compound). I hope one of you guys can help me on this matter.

✔ Best Answer
Select your CPU from this site and look up the correct application of thermal paste (all brands). Too much is as bad or worse than too little paste and much easier to accomplish.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
